MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL – The Miami-Dade Police Department, Organized Crime Bureau is investigating a fraud, where an elderly woman was conned out of $19,000. According to investigators, a woman approached the elderly victim in the parking lot of a local supermarket, and both were joined by a second woman that participated in furtherance of the scam.

The woman convinced the victim that she was a lottery jackpot winner; however, could not cash the ticket due to her immigration status. The woman asked the victim for cash in exchange for the jackpot prize and assured the victim that all would be documented with an attorney. The victim entered the woman’s vehicle and directed them to her home.

While at the residence, the victim retrieved $19,000 in cash and the woman took possession of it. The two women and the victim drove back the supermarket parking lot, when the victim was asked to exit the vehicle as they parked. The two women never returned.
