A Jamaican lottery scammer was on Friday sent to prison for a nearly six-year term in the United States, after he attempted to extort a former head of the FBI and CIA and his wife.
Reports are that 94 year old William Webster and his wife, Lynda, were targeted four years ago by Keniel Thomas, who peddled a lottery scam over phone calls and emails.
Thomas reportedly told the Websters he would set their house on fire or have a sniper shoot them in the head if they didn’t pay him thousands of dollars.
Thomas, who has been in jail since his arrest in late 2017, pleaded guilty to an extortion charge.
He admitted to threatening the Websters.
