A Washington DC-area man has been arrested in Brunswick County Florida under a $1 Million bond for using a lottery scam to swindle tens of thousands of dollars from a Florida woman.

A detective for the Sunset Beach Police Department says Olanrewaju Aju Thomas, 30, contacted the victim through Facebook and said she had won $250,000 in an alleged Washington, DC lottery.

Thomas allegedly told the victim that to claim a prize she had to pay shipping, shipping insurance, tax and an IRS fee to claim a prize.

The victim reported the fraud and Thomas was caught after they executed a search of his bank records.

Thomas was charged with 4 counts each of obtaining property by false pretense, accessing a computer by means of fraud, exploiting an older adult and felony conspiracy.

Detectives were able to recover some of the money the victim lost in the scam.
