It seems that there are a lot of scams and scam artists these days. Lots of them are aimed at vulnerable senior citizens.

Such is the case with a new lottery scheme.  Jamaican con artists are posing as representatives for an American sweepstakes company.

Senior citizens are informed that they have won money and to get the prize they must first pay a fee.

Authorities say the scam against seniors has worked effectively to lure folks in.  An 81 year old man in Baltimore lost his home in a scam.  He was desperately wanting to cover his wife's medical bills.

Share this especially with senior citizens you know.  They could be the next target.
