Georgia woman continues to get calls from con artist

Posted: Updated:
PUTNEY, GA -

A scam alert tonight from a south Georgia woman who says she's fed up with dealing with con artists.     

Ruby Israel says she recently got a fifth scam call from a number in Jamaica.     

This time, the scammer told her she won 3 million dollars and a Mercedes, and she'd get both prizes as soon as she paid a $360 fee.     

She didn't fall for it, and she's sick of getting these calls.   

"I want them to stop calling me, I've been very ill, I recently had surgery, I'm facing more surgery, I've been ill, I'm old, I don't have money, and why they keep trying to call me, I don't know," said Ruby Israel.     

Israel says the man who called her used the name Norman Douglas.  She says you should watch out for him and sketchy offers coming from Jamaica.
