Lottery Scammer Faces Jail Time, Loses Assets

After four years, a Montego Bay, St. James lottery scammer is facing jail time and has been ordered to pay the court over 13 million dollars for his involvement in lottery scamming. He is thirty-five-year-old Algrando Stewart of Cambridge. He pleaded guilty to possession of identity information in the Parish Court on December 16.

Meanwhile, the Financial Investigations Division is the Department that probes crimes of this nature. It says the agency has seized approximately 1.4 billion dollars in forfeited assets, majority of them real estates, motor vehicles and bank accounts.
