“Apparently, the suspects had a call center in our country, from which they contacted US citizens, mostly seniors, who were told they had won a grand cash prize.

“Next, they were told that in order for them to receive the bonus they had to deposit a certain amount of money through cash delivery companies, with the aim of covering the insurance of the prize won, being that, people made deposits and but never received the prize,” explained the Judicial Police through a press release.

The suspects used software that made victims believe that calls were being made from Washington D.C. and not from Costa Rica.

The brothers now are awaiting extradition to the United States.
