$25M lottery scam aimed at elderly busted

The feds on Tuesday dismantled an Israeli boiler-room operation that conned elderly U.S. victims out of $25 million by telling them they'd won a sweepstakes lottery. A dozen members of the international telemarketing ring were named in a three-count fraud indictment handed up yesterday in Manhattan Federal Court. \"Despite sending substantial amounts of money to Israel, none of the victims received any money,\" the indictment says. The scam operated between 2005 and 2009, and was taken down with the help of a law enforcement agent posing as a would-be sweepstakes winner. Victims sent cashier's checks to a mail-forwarding business in Rockland County, which shipped the checks to Cyprus, officials said.
