Couple testifies about being victims of Jamaican lottery scam during man's conspiracy trial

A woman who was the victim of a Jamaican lottery scam told a federal jury Wednesday that she received a postcard in June 2012 at her Madison, South Dakota, home from a company called American Cash Awards asking for $10 to enter a sweepstakes. What followed was a yearslong nightmare that has wiped out most of their savings and an inheritance from Kathy Erickson’s mother.
