Jamaican National Arrested in Gulfport for Alleged Role in Lottery Scam
A Jamaican national in Gulfport on a work visa has been arrested in Harrison County, confirmed Attorney General Jim Hood today.
Damion Aljunior Hill, 33, was arrested near his apartment located at 3103 8th Avenue in Gulfport, by investigators with the Attorney General’s Office Consumer Protection Division. Hill is facing two counts of wire fraud for his role in an alleged Jamaican lottery scam involving two victims. The alleged victims were told that they had won the lottery, but were required to pay taxes before the award could be made. Monies were then wired to Jamaica. The victims allege that they received numerous calls on a daily basis, promising big cash prizes, jewelry and cars, but never received anything.
