 On May 19th,I received an email claiming to be from an elderly couple from Nova Scotia,UK. They claim to have won the lotto,but are so happy with their lives,that they are only keeping 2%,and the rest goes to charities,other organizations,the hospital where Allen (the aclaimed husband) had his wife treated for cancer-a possible town/city of Truro,and 10 randomly selected individuals who they thought could use the money. The wife is Violet. They are known as Allen and Violet Large.

This email proceeds to ask you for your personal home address and passport or license. So right then and their,I questioned why this would be needed,and they claim that it is to make sure you are who you say you are! I came to the realization that this needed to be checked out on google,and it came up a huge scam from last year,and all these scam artists are doing is adding pictures of this elderly couple, and a picture of Violet in the hospital. So what these scammers are looking to do is take your identity ! Identity theft! It is also said that Violet died from her cancer,so her husband was left to distribute the funds as they discussed.

So I emailed them back and gave them my phone number,and asked for theirs. THey contacted me today,May 21st,2013,as a blocked number. A man that sounded Indian,you could barely understand him,with noise of some sort of calling center was in the backround.I proceeded to tell him he was a liar and scam artist,and will be reported. He hung up on me. I also emailed Santander Bank in the UK,to warn them that money could be coming in,or being taken out with this scam. I never heard back from the bank. I emailed:phishing@santander.co.uk-to report fraudulent matters.

I also sent them an email back telling them of how horrible they were to do this to people and hoped that karma came back around.

People,once again,if is sounds too good to be true,IT IS !
