Lottery Scam


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

The Miami-Dade Police Department, Robbery Bureau, is investigating an incident that occurred at the listed location. According to investigators, two subjects approached the victim at the bus stop and asked her for directions. During the conversation, one of the subjects told the victim he had a winning lottery ticket but he was not a legal resident and so could not redeem the ticket.  He then offered to give the victim the ticket in exchange for $10,000 cash. The victim agreed and was driven to the bank by the subjects. At the bank, the victim withdrew $10,000 in cash and was driven to a nearby apartment complex. There a third subject approached the vehicle, opened the passenger door, and grabbed the victim’s purse. A struggle ensued and the victim fell out of the vehicle. All three subjects fled in the vehicle.

Update #1:  The Economic Crimes Bureau is also investigating a similar incident. On Tuesday, May 26, 2015 at approximately 10:45 a.m. a second victim, Maria Cardenas, was sitting at a bus stop located at SW 80 Avenue and 7 Street, when she was approached by two white male subjects.  They convinced the victim to give them $400 in exchange for the winning lottery ticket.  The subjects then drove the victim to a nearby bank, located at 7760 West Flagler Street, where she withdrew the money and gave them the bracelet she was wearing. The subjects then drove the victim to a nearby gas station 7350 West Flagler Street where they asked her to buy them a bottle water, when the victim stepped out of the vehicle they then drove away.
