Richmond Police Issue Scam Warning

A scam alert in Madison County after a woman falls victim to a lottery scheme.
Richmond Police are now warning people about the scam.
The woman says she received a letter from Vision Global Technology Solutions in California claiming she had won $57,000.
The only stipulation, the woman had to cash a check she received for $3,900 and send the money back to the company before she collected her winnings.
Richmond police say they will probably not be able to recover the victims money.

    I don't think we should call anyone dumb or an idiot for falling for a scam. In the past some really intelligent people have been scammed one way or the other. Show some sympathy people!

    I feel so bad for this woman, but really? I know a lot of this is the elderly that fall victim to this type of scam, they can not believe that something that looks so real could be fake. They take things at face value, not thinking that someone is just out to take what they have saved or worked hard for. It is really sad that the world has come to this, but people, wake up!!

    I feel sorry for the victim but come on this scam has been around for 20 years, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
