26 years old Mikhail Gorbachev George Williams (yes, that’s his real name according to local police) plead Guilty to his charges after being a part of scam in which random elderly people were falsely told they had won a Jamaican lottery and were asked to send out payments over fictional taxes and handling fees in order for them to claim their so called ‘Grand Prize’. Florida State Prosecutors said Williams was responsible for up to $400,000 in losses to victims! Williams was sentenced to 71 months imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release.
