Three migrants from Colombia are facing criminal charges for allegedly scamming an older woman out of $20,000 with a fake lottery ticket in Illinois.

The suspects manipulated the victim into withdrawing the money from the bank and then stole it.

They are facing theft by deception charges and could potentially face prison sentences of three to seven years if convicted.

“It is alleged that these three defendants preyed on an innocent, trusting woman with a good heart, scamming her out of more than $20,000,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin stated.

“This is a disturbing case involving a group of con artists and their coordinated efforts to steal from someone simply trying to help them,” Addison Interim Chief of Police Roy Selvik added.
