That is a true story about the couple. However....

I guess the scammer didnt read his own scam copy:
They only have about 2% left, as of 2010....

Allan and Violet Large Scam


Allen and Violet Large are an elderly couple from Canada. They really did win the lottery and yes they did give away their winnings to various charities last year. The problem here is that Nigerian scammers are impersonating them with this scam letter.

The Bogus Barrister: About Your Late Uncle Inheritance robertbandyesq@yahoo.com

Quote:
About Your Late Uncle Inheritance
I am Robert Bandy attorney to late Mr. Richard , who died in a car crash in London with his family on November 5th 2001.He left behind a deposit of (£9.8million GBP) for you and you have the same last name with my late client who was a citizen of the State, So I believe you are related to him. Your consent is needed by me to present you as the next of kin to the Bank to inherit his fortune. I have all documents that would give you all the legal right to claim this money which belong to your uncle, After a little check my instinct tells me to contact you. Can I trust you on this. Send me your telephone number so that we can discuss on this transaction.
I have tracked me family tree and no stems are in the England. We branch off in Portugal and Hawaii. Oddly enought no lost relatives with cash for me those areas.
