LEE COUNTY, Fla. - An elderly man says he was conned out of $10,000 by scammers offering a multi-million dollar payday.

The 84-year old victim told investigators he was contacted in 2012 by a man claiming to be from Bank of America. The suspect then told him they were holding 2 checks worth an estimated $4.5 million.

The man then told the victim in order to receive the cash he needed to deposit money in the forms of Green Dot cards and MoneyGram orders.

Over a 12-month period the victim sent nearly $10,000 in transactions before contacting authorities.

The victim said he would then contact the man, who would then transfer the funds to another account.
