Con artists are still sending potential victims a link to CBC lottery story to try and convince them to send them money. Violet and Allen Large won it big in the lottery in July 2010 and the couple gave away most all of their $11.2 million winnings to charities and families. Con artists claiming to be the lottery winning couple from Nova Scotia are still continuing to trick victims around the world into sending them money, even after three years after the original lottery scam surfaced.
People are still receiving emails surfaced from unknown senders which claim to be the lottery winning couple. The emails say the Large family will share their winning fortune with the recipient, if they send them a small amount of money first. The email which also includes a link to a CBC News version of the lottery winning story online is used to hopefully seal the scheme. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, which are the police agency that tracks fraud received its first complaint about a scam which uses Allen and Violet Large names in October 2011. Daniel Williams of the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre said “the Large scam is just a variation of the old West African fraud emails scam”, which state that people can share in a vast fortune, they just pay a small fee or provide some personal financial information.
This is very unfortunate to know that someone’s trying to pull a scam like that, Allen and Violet Large spoke out when the scam was initially discovered, they said they were disgusted that their names were being used for wrongdoing to others.
