Lottery Winner Launches Rantanna Media to Expose Con Artists
Randall Rush to use media company to spotlight white collar crimes, other social injustices
(April 28th 2020 – Vancouver, B.C.) Randall Rush, who won Canada’s $50 million Lotto Max Jackpot in 2015 has announced the launch of Rantanna Media, a mission-driven publishing and production company that is committed to shining the spotlight on white collar crime and other social injustices.
Rantanna Media was born out of a quest for justice by Rush, who found himself the victim of a $4.6 million con within months of his lottery win. Because Rush had the money to hire top attorneys and undergo a grueling eight-month civil court battle, he was able to recoup sixty percent of his money. But he was disgusted to learn that so little is done in the criminal justice system to stop white collar criminals. And when he discovered that at least a hundred other people had fallen prey to the same con artist who had taken him, he knew he had to act.
“I had heard about the devastating impact of white collar crime, but didn’t understand how emotionally crippling it could be until it happened to me,” notes Rush. “I find it outrageous that so little is done legally to stop these criminals from ruining peoples’ lives. Given the enormous financial gift I have been given, I see it as my responsibility to take on this fight.”
Rush says the mission of Rantanna Media is three-fold. First, he wants to give victims a voice and ensure their stories are heard. Next, he wants to expose these con artists to the world in order to prevent them from hurting anyone else. Finally, he is determined to ignite a movement that forces the criminal justice system to address the gaps that Rantanna Media spotlights.
Rantanna Media’s first two books, 13 Billion to One and Bloodsuckers, focus on Rush’s personal experience with white collar crime and stories of dozens of other victims who have fallen prey to con artists. Upcoming books focus on cover-ups of fraud and sexual abuse among Evangelical Christian leaders.
Along with sharing these true stories in print, e-book and audio form, Rantanna Media is exploring film and documentaries.
“At Rantanna Media, we are determined to raise such widespread awareness that these criminals will have nowhere left to hide,” says Rush. “But we can’t do it alone. We are asking people who have been a victim of white collar crime and other social injustices to report it to police and share their stories with us at Rantannamedia.com.”
