DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police are seeking two suspects in a lottery scam that left a 65-year-old woman with no winnings but more than $10,000 in credit card charges from a mall.

Police on Wednesday announced the search for a man and a woman who told the victim that she could share in an $11 million jackpot by paying them $35,000.

Police say the victim said she didn’t have that much cash, so the suspects instead suggested she buy them items to secure her lottery share.

Police say the couple on April 24 took the woman to an upscale Dallas mall where she bought them jewelry, watches and other designer items.

Security video shows three people browsing at a jewelry store where the victim ended up purchasing a more than $3,000 watch.
