A 76-year-old Worthington man allegedly was scammed out of thousands of dollars last month.
The man received a letter informing him that he had won millions of dollars in a lottery but needed to send money to cover fees associated with his win, according to a Worthington Division of Police report.
He sent $35,000 to addresses in Brooklyn, New York, and the country of Jamaica sometime in February before officers were informed of the issue, police said.
The man had been a victim of a scam before and sent more than $23,000 to a scammer in a different situation in 2017, police said.
The case is under investigation.
