Untitled Lottery Scam , #12259
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Valerie May Collins
Email Address:
   valeriemaycollins@hotmail.com
I was told that there was a couple (Allan and Violet Large) that had won a lottery and were donating their winnings after Violet\'s recent passing. The person asked for my name, address, and phone number (which i gave them). They told me i needed to open an online banking account so they could transfer me 500,000 USD. They also posted a link www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/violet-large-gave-away-her-lottery-windfall/article2119137/. Upon clicking, this seemed legit. I told the person I was weary about this being a scam, and she continued to email me back in response, telling me she would send me her personal phone number. She appears to be Allan Large in the emails, and Valerie is supposedly the banker at National Westminster Bank PLC. I hope by giving my name address and phone number, there is no harm done to my identity-i made it clear at no time would i give a SSN.
