Lottery Scams Targeting the Spanish-Speaking Community

What:
LAPD’s Northeast Area Detectives will host a news conference to provide information
regarding scams targeting the Spanish-speaking community.  
                 
When:
Wednesday, April 28, 2010
1 p.m.
               
Where:
Northeast Area Community Police Station
3353 San Fernando Road
Los Angeles, CA 90065

Who:  
LAPD Captain William Murphy, Commanding Officer,
Northeast Division
LAPD Lieutenant Steven Flores, Northeast Division
Detective John Hovhanessian
Detective Susan Carrasco
Police Officer Guadalupe Juarez

Why:  
To bring awareness to the community regarding the scam and to ask for the public’s help in identifying and locating a group of suspects who are working in pairs to target spanish-speaking individuals.  Suspects engage the victim in conversation to enlist the victim’s financial help in return for a substantial profit.  Since many of these scams go unreported,we are asking for victims to come forward.  In some cases, victims are scammed out of their entire life savings.

CONTACT:
For further information please contact Detective Carrasco at 213-847-4266.
