She allegedly received a call from a man who told her that she had won either an Eddie Bauer edition Ford Explorer or $25,000 cash. In order to receive her prize, the caller, who identified himself as Keith Jackson, told her to meet him at 13 Red Roof Lane Unit 2A in Salem, N.H., with her driver's license and major credit card information. Hanover Police alerted Salem Police of the situation, who contacted the man, whose name actually is Keith Jackson.
