Scammer's surprisePosted Thursday, June 3, 2010, at 2:31 PM
I was at the Bedford County Sheriff's Department dispatch office this morning picking up the daily jail intake when their phone rang.
"We've won $2.5 million dollars?" the dispatcher told the caller. "Do you realize you've called a sheriff's office?"
The call was quickly terminated. I doubt the scammer ever expected to be talking to law enforcement.
