Crime Beat

At 8:35 a.m. Sept. 1, a man on John Jay Drive reported that in February, he received an e-mail from a lottery foundation in England that said he had won a $200,000 prize, but needed him to send money to cover fees and taxes. He said that on 10 occasions, he sent in amounts between $1,000 and $2,500, but has never received his “lottery winnings.” He said he has used his entire savings up.

Sigh...This still happens?
