An 82-year-old woman sent thousands of dollars overseas to collect on money she thought she had won, and now Salinas police are trying to figure out who scammed her. The victim received a call early this month informing her that she won $500,000, but to collect it she needed to pay fees and taxes. Between March 9 and this past Thursday, she sent more than $50,000 to the Philippines, according to the Salinas Police Department. She told police she sent another large amount of cash to another probable scam earlier this year. The woman apparently had planned to send another large amount of cash Friday, but abank teller in Salinas got suspicious and called police.
