Damion Blake, assistant professor in Political Science and Policy Studies at Elon University in the United States, wrote an article analysing the Montego Bay-based lottery scam and its link to gang feuds that have resulted in hundreds of murders.
Jamaican defense force chief Major Gen. Rocky Meade says law enforcement’s mission now is to restore peace in Montego Bay by disrupting gangs, particularly “Those that are responsible for murders, lotto scamming, trafficking of arms and guns, and extortion.” It may sound strange to lump in lottery scams with weapons dealing and homicide.
I’m a Jamaican violence researcher who’s been monitoring lotto scamming – a lethal and growing financial fraud scheme in my home country – since as far back as 2013.
In 2010, Jamaican lotto scammers defrauded US$30 million from scores of victims in the state of Minnesota.
Over time, Jamaica’s lotto scammers have accrued huge fortunes, earning up to $100,000 a week.
