• A 67-year-old Carpentersville woman told police she was bilked out of $15,000 in a scam between mid-January and Monday. The woman was told she'd won a $1 million sweepstakes, but would have to pay a $15,000 fee to a "Mr. Miller" first, police said. She withdrew the money, paid it and was told she'd need to send another $15,000 before she could collect her prize, police said. The teller at BMO Harris Bank in the 0 to 99 block of North Kennedy Drive became suspicious after the women returned to withdraw another $15,000 and notified police, Cmdr. Erman Blevins said.
