Deceptive Practice

An 81-year-old resident of the 3900 block of Royal and Ancient Drive, reported at 10:27 a.m. that over the past week, she had received several calls from a male saying she had won a $2.5 million prize from Publisher’s Clearinghouse, and that to claim it, she needed to buy a $500 “Money Pack Reloaded Scratch Card. When the woman said she did not have that much money, the caller tried to bargain with her, even after she told him to give the prize to someone else. The man was persistent, however, according to the report, which stated he gave his name as “John Forrester” and would send someone to her residence. That’s when the woman called police. She said she did not give the caller her address or any personal or financial information. Police checked the number of the caller and traced it to a cellphone in Jamaica.
