An Israeli scammer was caught by the police for cheating US$2million from Americans.
Police say a
well organized ring placed phone calls to predominantly elderly
American citizens and falsely informed them that they had won a large cash prize in a lotto draw. The victims were swindled into giving up their cash after being told that they had to pay tens of thousands of dollars in taxes before receiving the prize. Police say the victims were talked into electronically wiring the cash into fictitious bank accounts.
It is wise to advise elderly folks that “internet is great place but not one to get-rich-quick”…
The scammer even has an office and runs the scam like a business. He probably wears a business suit and sits inside a large office with dozens of clerks sending out scam mails everyday…
