OREM -- Orem authorities are warning people of a scam after a 79-year-old woman lost about $93,000.
They say the scam began with a letter in the mail claiming to be from the American Gaming Board. Police say it stated the victim had won $2.5 million.
When she called in, the woman was told to send in her money so she could claim the much larger amount, but she never received any cash and ended up being bilked for $93,000.
Police say they want to get the word out to prevent others from being scammed.
