Woman wanted in lottery scam

Headline Goes Here

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Broward Sheriff's Office on Friday released a sketch of a woman wanted for targeting immigrant and elderly victims in a lottery scam.

Investigators believe the two women claim to be illegal immigrants who have a winning lottery ticket. In two instances, one in Tamarac and another in Oakland Park, the women convinced victims to give them $10,400 and $10,000 cash.

The scam usually involves them faking a call to a lottery administrator to verify the winning ticket.

Anyone with information on the scam is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
