Police in Jamaica have arrested six people accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from U.S. citizens through a lottery scam.
Saturday's statement from police says that one of the men had more than $60,000 in an account believed to belong to the victims. Police also seized computers, information on the lottery scam and lists of U.S. victims, with their addresses and other personal information.
The arrests came after police contacted a U.S. victim they say lost $120,000 through the scam.
Jamaica has long operated as a center for international telemarketing frauds that target elderly Americans and take in roughly $300 million a year.
