Every day, criminals find new ways to scam victims out of money. Floridians have fallen prey to con artists claiming to be Florida Lottery winners who are unable to collect their prize. Most often, the con artists offer to "sell" the winning ticket to the victim, or ask their victim to collect the money for them. When the victim agrees, they are asked for money or other valuables as a "deposit." Once the con artists have the victim's money, they disappear.
