I received an email with a minimal sentence of \"Your email has been selected for something big\".

Even though I normally just mark it as Spam, I decided to reply asking what I had been chosen for

I then got a reply back with a very long description.

Basically, this man and his wife won an 11.2 Million Dollar Lottery Jackpot in Ontario Canada and after his wife dying of cancer her wish was to choose random \"lucky\" people to Donate a Sum of $500,000 but it has to be used to in turn donate that money to charities for good cause. He asks for your full name, address and phone number; assuring that he doesn\'t want to steal your identity and there are 3 links posted at the bottom of the email to \"verify\" that the information is legit. When I searched for \"Violet and Allen Large\" in Google, all the hits are for Lottery Scam.
