Police Seek Imposter Who Claimed Pennsylvania Jackpot Prize

CORRY, Pa. -- State police in northwestern Pennsylvania are searching for an unknown jackpot imposter.

Police say the unknown imposter pretended to be another man when he collected the $750 daily jackpot at the Veterans of Foreign Wars club in Corry last week.

The Erie Times-News reports club officials discovered they had been duped on Monday when 67-year-old Malcolm Johnson came to the club to collect his winnings from last Friday's daily drawing at the club.

That's when club officials told Johnson that another man using his name, address, and Social Security number had come to the club last week and signed to collect the jackpot.

Police say the real Johnson has gray hair, glasses and walks with assistance. The imposter has dark hair, no glasses and uses a cane.
