FRIES — When Joan Hammond received a call saying she had won $1.5 million in a Las Vegas lottery, at first she was thrilled.
Then, when the caller gave her some suspicious directions to claim the prize, reality set in.
Hammond began investigating the “prize” and discovered she was the victim of a scam.
She and the Better Business Bureau are working to inform the public about the scam, which also uses the BBB’s name without permission.
Hammond shared her story so that “hopefully no one falls into their trap.”
