rip-off. A minimum of two victims last month were approached by a woman claiming to have a $1 million winning lotto ticket, which she needed assistance cashing.
By the end of the interaction, the female and a second suspect would flee, while the victims were bilked from their own money– with hopes of a windfall dashed.
To catch the wrongdoers, City Cops on Tuesday launched security images of a male and a lady, requesting for the public’s aid to determine them.
On at least two celebrations– Feb. 9 and Feb. 14– the female suspect approached Hispanic women and told them that she had a winning lotto ticket but couldn’t cash it due to the fact that she is undocumented, cops said. That’s when the male suspect would approach them, offering his support.
They would then enter into his automobile– a black four-door sedan– and a telephone call would be made to a third suspect who would allegedly validate the payouts, authorities said. The suspects would then drive the victim to obtain cash to spend for the services supplied by the caller.
Once they turned over the money, they would drive her to a home or organisation to “get the items that will complete the business deal while the suspects (left) the area,” police stated.
