In this Thursday, April 19, 2012 photo, a statuette of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer stands on a shelf in the kitchen of Miriam Parker as she looks for an item in her Raleigh, N.C., home. Parker, 87, lost her life's savings and went deeply into debt after a Canadian sweepstakes ring latched onto her. The statuette was a gift from the Mounties who were involved in her fraud case.
