Our Large Donation Scam

I don’t know if you have noticed, but I don’t even bother posting most of these scam letters any more, because they all get to look alike. This one is a little different, and LOL, they mention the “only $153. fee” right up front for my $500,000 very large charitable sum that they want to send to me . . .

Peace Be Unto you

This is a personal email directed to you, Let me formally introduce myself
to you, my name is (Mr. Allen Large). I and my dear wife Violet won a
Jackpot Lottery of $11.3 million in July 2010 and have voluntarily
to donate the sum of $500,000.00 USD to you as part of our own charity
project to improve the lives of some individuals all over the world.

Kindly send your below details to Federal Express Ltd to
enable them effect the delivery of your valid Bank Draft of $500,000.00
USD to you immediately. The draft was deposited with Nigeria FedEx office
last week during my charity mission to Africa as i do not know when i return
to Canada as i am currently in Africa.

We have paid for the necessary delivery fee except that of the
Administrationand Handling charges which is $153 only. And this was
because we don’t know how soon you will be contacting FedEx.

  1. I got this too. It is an actual couple that did win the lottery. It looks real and is super mean to take the good thing this couple did and turn it into a scam.

  2. The one I got today is meaner, Amanda25. It uses the name of a real friend to ask me to send money, claiming he was robbed. I know that particular scam; it has entrapped many trusting soul.
