Joyce Branda, the US Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the Justice Department is warning that prosecutors will find those responsible for fraud against American consumers, no matter where the perpetrators reside.

She was speaking against the background of the extradition of Jamaican Damion Bryan of Hendon, Norwood St James who was extradited from Jamaica to the United States yesterday and is scheduled to appear in a Florida court this morning on a 38-count lottery scamming indictment.

Meanwhile, Jamaica's police commissioner Dr Carl Williams says yesterdays' extradition signals strong partnership between the Jamaica Constabulary Force and US law enforcement partners.

The Commissioner is warning other lottery scammers who continue to prey on unsuspecting US citizens, that they too will pay the penalty, whether through conviction in Jamaica or through extradition to the United States.

He also says the matter is being addressed with a high level of attention.
