He started sending money orders to Jamaica late last year after he was repeatedly contacted by criminals claiming he had won a lottery, but had to send a "fee" to claim the prize. He goes into the restroom or his room and talks silently so I won't hear him," said Edward, who also asked that his last name not be used.Dino needed the phantom winnings so he could move his very sick wife to a better care facility, because his own medication is costing him thousands. "I show him You Tube videos and news reports and people that have had the same problem and he says to me, 'They're not all scammers.' I don't know what to do." After a bunch of web searching, Edward recently reached out to Deem. "If you are going to help [victims], you have to replace whatever they are getting out of the scam," she said. They are often isolated and depressed, making any contact a welcome break to the day's boredom.The most dramatic example I can share with you is one my wife and I were very much involved in.Marcy and Todd, not their real names, met in Jamaica while having breakfast in one of the tourist restaurants.After several months of this long distance romance, they decided to get married. Together they built their dream home on property that Todd already owned with mostly her money.I should point out that she was thirteen years his senior. Marcy quit her prestigious position with a major law firm and moved to Jamaica bringing with her several hundred thousand U.

Some victims lose all their retirement funds or take out second mortgages, Deem said. Deem thinks elder scam victims are very much like other addicts. Most people don't just decide one day to change something and do it. "Most behaviors work like that." Usually, by the time Deem meets victims, they are knee-deep in trouble and don't know whom to believe — or they believe only the scammer.

The relationship started very quickly and continued to go so strongly that Marcy would fly to Jamaica almost monthly, sometimes just for a weekend, to see Todd.

The more Marcy saw Todd the stronger her love for him grew.

Dino's young roommate Edward — who calls Dino his adoptive grandfather — did everything he could to stop the flow of money, yet nothing worked. Research suggests the part of the brain that makes people skeptical is among the first to atrophy. And growing ranks of retired Americans make for a target-rich environment. Earlier this year, the Justice Department extradited a group of Jamaicans to North Dakota, alleging they tricked at least 90 people out of more than $5.7 million.

That investigation began after a North Dakota woman lost $300,000.
