Jamaican Man Sentenced To 20-Years For Scamming

An Jamaican man was convicted and sentenced to 20 years behind federal prison for scamming US$5 million from more than 80 Americans.
He was identified has Sanjay Williams. The judge presiding in his case also took a shot at Jamaica government for its lax prosecution of  scammers and the comparatively light sentences given to them.

While Williams continuously argued with the judge, his attorney and a FBI special agent, he was eventually convict by a federal jury for 35 counts of  conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering in May this year.

According to persecutors, over the years, Williams compiled lead lists which contained names, addresses and phone numbers of  potential targets for scammers who use the lists to peddle stories of  big lottery winnings in order to defraud their often elderly victims of  thousands of  dollars.  

His co-defendant Lavrick Willocks is  awaiting extradition to the United Stated.
