PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Palm Beach County sheriff's detectives are seeking to identify two men that have been approaching older women in a lottery scam.

PBSO said the men offer to share their lottery winnings if the women help them pay their legal fees in excess of $6,000. 


In most cases, the men will transport the victims to their banks. The women are then requested to go inside, withdraw the cash and hand it over to the man who is waiting outside. 

The men being sought in the case were described by the victims as Hispanic, thin build, short dark hair, usually seen driving a white minivan or maroon sedan. 

PBSO did not mention what area of the county the men are targeting. 

If anyone can identify the suspect that appears in this photo or the van they are urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
