DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Police are looking for two suspects involved in scamming a 65-year-old woman out of thousands of dollars of merchandise.

According to police, Virginia Rodriguez was convinced by a Hispanic couple that she could share in their $11 million lottery winnings — if she provided $35,000 in cash.

After telling the suspects that she didn’t have the cash, Rodriguez agreed to provide merchandise for the suspects in exchange for a portion of the winnings.

Rodriguez was taken to North Park Center, where she purchased various merchandise valuing in excess of $10,000 with a credit card. The items included jewelry, watches and Louis Vuitton bags.

Police have provided footage of Rodriguez shopping with the suspects at Ben Bridge Jewelers, where she purchased a TAG watch valued at over $3,000.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects is encouraged to contact Dallas Police at 214-671-3544.
