Description

This CBS investigation looks at how con men swindle retired people of their life's savings. They make calls to these affluent elderly people saying that they had won the Canadian sweepstakes. They would then demand a sum of money to get the prize money to them. The con men made up to $5 billion from unsuspecting elderly people.
