Israelis scam elderly US pensioners out of millions

Police in Tel Aviv have arrested nine Israelis accused of stealing millions from US pensioners in a Nigerian-style scam.
And American law enforcement agencies last week reportedly urged Israel Police to step up the extradition of another 10 Israelis who were suspected of scamming $2 million in a similar fraud.

According to website Haaretz.com, police on Sunday raided the hub of the operation, where the defendents in their 20s and 30s allegedly phoned their victims and told them they had won the lottery.

They then asked their victims, many of whom were old and frail, for a fee of several thousand dollars to claim the non-existent money.
