Violet and Allen Large – Lottery Windfall Scam

I’ve seen hundreds of spam emails, for a year or more, that reference the Canadian couple, Violet and Allen Large.

The Story
The elderly couple, who lived in Nova Scotia, won $11.2 million in a Lotto 6/49 jackpot in July 2010. They decided, due to the fact hat they were retired and had plenty of savings to continue to live comfortably, to give away the bulk of their winnings to family, local churches and various charities.

The Scam
Almost immediately, the scammers started sending out emails containing details of this true story. Typically, the pitch goes like this:

My wife Violet and I Allen Large won $11.3 million in a lottery 6-49 in July, 2010 and we have decided to donate the sum of $2,000,000.00 USD to you. Contact us via our personal email for more details (violetlargealln@rogers.com). You can verify our story by visiting the web page below. http://www.ctvnews.ca/n-s-couple-gives-away-11m-in-lottery-winnings-1.570916

The link, which is usually to a worldwide news website article about the story, gives the scam bona fides. The amount ‘won’ is generally $2,000,000.
Violet and Allen Large

How it works
The scam is the typical ‘Advance Fee Fraud’ (aka Nigerian or 419), where a large sum of money can only be released by submitting a relatively smaller amount. This takes the form of taxes, bribes, customs, shipping, security, courier, lawyers and any other fees the scammer can think of. A check may arrive in the post, but it’ll be fake or stolen so don’t order your new Porsche just yet.

The amazing thing about these scams, which more usually are about Deposed Dictators’ fortunes, is how long they last. Scamdex has emails and Scam Tip submissions going back years and yet the scam must still have legs, judging by the continuing flow. Scamdex continues to collect, index, and publish information on these scams but …

Scammers have always relied on and profited from P.T Barnum’s famous maxim, “There’s a sucker born every minute”.

  1. this is a horrible horrible situation. I wish there was a way to stop this email from circulating. I am appalled that someone would fraudulantly use this beautiful couple to further their scam. I wasnt the Large family to know you have many people that are sickened by this obvious scam.

  5. Joe says:

    Some common email based scams (Nigerian, lottery and so many others) have so many versions, it’s becoming more and more difficult to keep track.

  6. joseph says:

    They sent my uncle Steve a email saying that they were going to give him 2 million but he has to put money into the community and put people to work then we would have to open a online account to get the money. I knew from the start it was a scam. Too good to be true. It is.

It was during the hockey game on Saturday night that’s when we purchased our winning ticket. “It was the end of the first period when I suddenly realized that I had not bought our 6/49 ticket yet. So I ran out to the store with only minutes left” Audrey. “First, I checked my ticket from Wednesday night’s draw and I won $5.00 so I purchased a few quick picks with the winning ticket money.”

    My wife and I have decided to donate the sum of $2,000,000.00 USD to you as part of our charity project to improve the lives of 3 individuals in the world from our $17.4 million Jackpot Lottery winning funds at the OLG Prize Center on April 27, 2013 in Toronto canada. We prayed and searched over the Internet for someone to donate this money to in your country and we saw your profile on Google list of email owners and we picked you randomly. we have also helped some charity organizations, family members and friends from our winnings. it something that has been difficult for us to handle but we bless God whom has been giving us the courage to move on although we won this lottery funds LOTTO 6/49 April 27, 2013

    To facilitate the disbursement process of the funds ($2,000,000.00 USD) which have been donated solely to you, You are to send us your FULL NAMES for payment and CONTACT ADDRESS (we asked for this brief information just to know who we are donating this money to and because of the Identity thief going around the internet which i have been a victim, we do not want to ask you for your ID or other personal information as we do not want to leave an impression in your mind that we want to steal your identity).

    God bless you,
    Malvin and Audrey Knight

    I got it today

  9. David says:

    I get these emails and I direct them to contact my lawyer and provide his contact information. I assume that if you are donating millions of dollars to a complete stranger (lol) that you would want it to be legal and above board. The saddest part is that people fall for these scams often enough to make it worth the scammers time.

    I received one similar but different names. Same story almost exact same detail. Except different names and the price to make a personal account was $750 and not $568. They are recent winners of the lotto of 17 million plus. Names are Malvin Knight and Audrey Gill. They want there account setup through Nationwide Bank. Their banker goes by Graham Beale and I have attempted to reach him but there is no real number to call him out. I guessing its safe to assume this is another scam just a different name.
