Woman doesn’t fall for bold scam attempt

-A A +A
By Cindy Simpson

A persistent scammer refused to take no for an answer from one Kingston woman.

“Oh, they’ve called. It is bordering on harassment,” said Dottie Hulbert recently.

“I ‘won’ $2.5 million and a 2014 Mercedes,” Hulbert said of her would-be prize offerings. She received multiple calls for several days from the culprits.

Hulbert said she was told someone would call to set up the Mercedes delivery and that she would need to send $771.63 for the taxes before they’d send her the check.
