I first received an email from \"Patti Cazier\" explaining the lotto winning and the donations. Never hearing about Allen and Violet Large before, I emailed back asking if it was real or if it was a scam. I never received a reply from \"Patti\" but I did however receive one from this email address the next day:
In this email they continued on about the winnings and donations along with attaching two photos of Allen and Violet. The email said:

Good Day To You

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 as we do not want to leave an impression in your mind that we want to steal your identity). we are hoping that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously over there in your country. we will employ you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty in your region and also try to enhance the standard of living of as many people as you can because that is the only objective of donating this money to you in the first place.

If you have any question please don\'t fail to ask.

We anticipate to read from you soon.

After doing some further research I am to assume that it is and was a scam. I find it to be sad and pathetic that someone would do this using two innocent peoples\' names. Hopefully they are caught before anyone loses money to them.
