Online Lottery Scammers Arrested In Jamaica

Crackdown on lottery fraudsters continues

Police in Kingston, Jamaica have announced the arrest of a further 20 people as an operation to wipe out online and telephone lottery fraudsters continues.

Victims in the United States and a number of other countries – in many cases elderly – have been defrauded out of millions of dollars by fraudsters located on the island, prompting the Jamaican authorities to intensify operations against them in collaboration with US enforcement agencies.

Lottery fraud is estimated at $300 million a year, according to task force officials.

The current batch of arrests took place in Hanover parish, a rural region west of the capital of Kingston, police spokesman Corporal Kevin Watson revealed. He said authorities seized laptops, documents and one firearm.
