MILWAUKEE (WITI) — It is bad enough so many people get lured into foreign lottery scams. Now, we have a story about two rival scam operations both going after the same victim — and the person was spared by a stroke of luck.
“They are told they`ve won a prize, either a sweepstakes or a lottery prize – but there is a catch,” U.S. Postal Inspector Steve Bolz said.
In an unusual twist, a postal clerk tipped Inspector Bolz off to a victim being targeted by two rival groups of foreign lottery scammers.
