Just Hang Up – Scams Against Seniors, Part 3
In part three of their investigation into lottery scams against the elderly, “Dan Rather Reports” visits Jamaica, the epicenter of the international scamming industry.

One popular reggae song promulgates this view to a catchy beat.
Dan Rather also finds a scientific explanation as to why seniors are particularly vulnerable to these schemes.
