+2 Violet and Allen Large lottery winnings giveaway
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Melissa Malone
Email Address:
   melissamalone@sanjuan.edu
I received an email from a Melissa Malone at melissamalone@sanjuan.edu telling me that Violet and Allen Large of Nova Scotia, a real couple really who won 11million in lottery and gave the money away(a link to a news story about the win and the couple giving it away is included), and how they wanted to gift me 2 million dollars.
I googled Melissa Malone\'s email and found there is someone by that name teaching math at a California school, but the link to her email on her teacher\'s webpage was inactive. I do not know if this person is involved in the scam or if her identity is being used to front such.
I deleted the email and am placing this information here so others will NOT reply, not give any information out. There is a real danger here of not only loosing money they may ask for fees and such, but of serious identity theft, the kind that takes years to recover from. BE WARNED!!!
It is a scam, delete and DO NOT REPLY.
