Florida Man Imprisoned For International Lotto Scam

A South Florida man who is also a musician managed to funnel money from vulnerable elderly victims with an international lottery hoax. The man managed to scam $500,000 in total from his lottery scam victims. He has recently been sentenced to three years and five months in federal prison. 

The culprit’s name is Delroy Drummond, also known as “Top Banga”. He is 26-years-old and he comes from Hollywood and Miami Gardens. He admitted to the international lottery scam where he would contact seniors all over the US and trick them into believing they had won a lottery prize.  

As most scams go, the victims are told that in order for their winnings to be released, they first need to pay a couple thousand dollars in tax. Some of the cash was sent via email and the rest through electronic transfers to Drummond’s account who shared the money with his partners. 

“I wish that everybody I have hurt can find it in their hearts to forgive me,” pleaded Delroy in front of District Judge William Dimitrouleas in Fort Lauderdale federal court. 

Randy Katz, the prosecutor, told the judge that Delroy was a “financial predator.” He told the court that Delroy’s scam targeted the elderly and vulnerable. They received calls from Delroy with US extensions, but the calls actually came from fraudulent telemarketers in Jamaica. 

International Lotto Fraudster

One of the victims was 83-year-old retired schoolteacher from Huntington Beach, California. She wrote a letter to the judge telling him that she sent Delroy $127,000 in 97 separate transactions. She said she got three loans from three different banks and also withdrew money from her investments, trusts, and cheque accounts. 

“Way before all of this even happened, I would pride myself in being a vigilant and educated woman involved in good organizations like church and charities. I led a fulfilling, honest life. I still can’t forget the pain I caused myself and my loved ones. It hurts!” explained the woman. Her name remains hidden. She said that the culprits kept calling her even during at night after she had sent the money. 

Delroy was born in Britain and lived in Jamaica and the US. He apologized to the judge, the prosecution, and to all of his elderly victims. He mentioned how he had disappointed his family and how sad he was that he would be in prison for the first few years of his unborn child’s life. 

He pleaded guilty to fraud conspiracy. He also added that he was a “runner” for other fraudsters. The Judge ordered Delroy to pay more than $420,000 in restitution. He agreed to turn over $23,000 in cash that he still had. 

Delroy has a pregnant wife, Elizabeth Gonzalez. She attended his sentencing but didn’t say a word the whole time. She also pleaded guilty to her role in the same telemarketing fraud two weeks ago. She is 25. She is released on a $100,000 bond. She is set to face 18 months in federal prison after her upcoming sentencing in July.  

Delroy has a permanent US citizenship and has been in jail since January. He is going to be deported back to Jamaica after he has served his sentence.
