Jorrel Tyler Jackson, a 31-year-old man from Seffner, Florida, has been sentenced to 6.5 years in federal prison for his involvement in an international fraud scheme that targeted senior citizens across several states, including Michigan. Jackson was found responsible for causing over $1.5 million in losses to 22 victims and has been ordered to pay restitution in that amount.

U.S. Attorney Mark Totten emphasized the devastating impact of crimes that exploit seniors, stating that his office will vigorously pursue criminals who target the elderly. Jackson's role in the conspiracy involved collecting money from victims and recruiting others to join the scheme, resulting in significant financial losses for those affected.

The fraud scheme involved scammers posing as tech company employees to deceive victims into giving them money through various false pretenses. Authorities urge the public to be cautious of unsolicited communication and provided tips to prevent falling victim to similar scams. The investigation was conducted by the FBI, Lake County Sheriff’s Office in Michigan, and Department of Homeland Security in Louisiana, with Assistant United States Attorney Clay Stiffler prosecuting the case.
