Bronx women Nadeisha, Melissa and Sophia Blake arrested in lottery phone scam
THE BRONX - Three related Bronx women have been busted in a lottery phone scam that raked in more than $400,000.
Investigators say Nadeisha, Melissa and Sophia Blake told dozens of elderly victims that they'd won cash prizes in an international sweepstakes, but that they'd have to put up tens of thousands of dollars in fees and taxes to claim the money.
The women allegedly worked with co-conspirators in Jamaica who would ask the victims for more money.
