TOMS RIVER-Officer Larry DiFabio is investigating the theft from an 83 year old East Dover couple who were victims of a telephone scam. The couple was contacted by a man who stated they won the “Senior Lottery”. The victims reported several times that they inquired if was the call a scam and were assured it was not and that they were to receive $750,000 and only had to cover some fees for their winnings. The couple then purchased a $500 Gift card and later wired $1,500 to an “876” number which apparently is in Jamaica. Police are once again warning residents of this phone scam and the other calls that state a relative needs financial assistance.
