US Ambassador Moreno, declares thousands of lottery scam cases under investigation in JA


UNITED STATES- Ambassador to Jamaica Luis G. Moreno today delivered an ominous warning to Jamaicans who are involved in the lottery scam.

Moreno revealed that a special taskforce established by US authorities to crack down on the advance fee or lottery scam has “thousands of cases under investigation”.

“Expect hundreds of extraditions,” declared the top American diplomat in the island.

The warning comes as local law enforcement personnel are getting ready to hand over eight Jamaicans to their US counterparts at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) in Kingston.

The five men and three women, including police constable Jason Jahalal, are wanted in the state of North Dakota on a 66-count indictment.

Today’s extradition demonstrates that these criminals will face justice, whether in a Jamaican high court or through the American federal system,” Moreno underscored
