Donation In Your Name Email

Donation in Your Name Scam: How It Works

(with video below) There is no week for us without receiving messages from readers, letting us know about a donation-related scam that’s been going around and having the same traits as an old age scheme.

Since it keeps happening we publish it with all its variations, just so other potential victims can avoid being taken advantage of. The scam comes as an email from someone afar, informing you that there is unclaimed money in a bank somewhere. Your name is listed as the beneficiary. If you received the same kind of emails, feel free to drop scammers’ names in the comments section below to expose them.

This fraudulent email is very similar to the Inheritance/Next-of-kin scam. How does it work?

Watch the video below to see a new twist in the Inheritance Scam, exposed:

Inheritance Scam in the News Video

The person will tell you that there are some funds in a foreign bank (or safety boxes) for you. The email comes in different variations, so let’s take a look at a few examples, then we will explain how it works.

 

Variation 1: Philanthropist Giving Money Away

Here is the email we just received from one, calling himself Charles Koch:

My Dear,

Thank you for confirming the validity of your email address and also for accepting this grant. My foundation ( Atlantic Philanthropies ) technically is responsible for awarding grant/donation but I have always wanted to make a personal donation to random individuals in any part of the world and that is why I have decided to give [$1,500,000,00 USD] to you secretly without my foundation being aware. 

It gives me great joy for being able to make this donation to you, let’s make the world a better place by giving and solving each other’s problems, all people have the right to opportunity, equity, and dignity.

To facilitate the disbursement process of the funds valued at One Million Five Hundred United States Dollars[$1,500,000 USD] which have been donated solely to you, please send me the below information before proceeding with remitting the sum of One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars [$1,500,000 USD] to you. 

I am hoping that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously. I ask you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty in your region and also try to enhance the standard of living of as many people as you can and see the joy and happiness of giving.

Do make sure you provide me with your complete information below so I can forward you the details of the delivery company that will deliver it to you.

Country:

Occupation:

Mobile Number:

I am trusting you to make good use of this money.

Thank you for accepting this offer, I am indeed grateful. I anticipate your earliest response.”

 

Variation 2. Abandoned Funds From a Delivery Agent

Here is the email we received not too long ago:

“Good Day,

This is to inform you that your cash boxes worth millions of dollars is still in our custody and we are ready to serve you better.

This package was abandoned here by some delivery agent from AFRICA long ago and ever since then we have not heard back from the delivery agent and we decided to contact you directly so that we can DELIVER your package to you and have more space for other packages to be stored.

I am in charge and I shall be waiting to hear back from you so that I can know what to do with the cash boxes.Thank you for your cooperation.

Best Regards,

Dr Yandex Ibru

EXPORT AND SHIPPING SUPERVISOR, EXPRESS DELIVERY SERVICES”

Variation 3: Unclaimed Money Collection Form

This one is a bit different, but is part of the same ‘family’ of scams:

“Hello,

Public records indicate that $3,226,519 of unclaimed money has been turned over to the State of California for distribution. Potentially an amount of money from this fund belongs to you. For instructions and your UMC Form (Unclaimed Money Collection Form) return this form along with a $20 check to: Asset Recovery, PO Box….”

 

Variation 4. Consignment Truck Box With Your Name

Here is the email, badly written in English:

“Good day,

We the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), believe you received the previous message we sent to you, prior to your dealings with the U. S Custom Authority at (JFK) John F. Kennedy International Airport New York as regards to your over-due contract payment consignment trunk box worth $8,000.000.00 (Eight million dollars only), which was endorsed in your favor and like we stated earlier, we have dully screened through this project as stipulated on our protocols of operation and have finally confirmed that your contract payment is 250% genuine and hitch free from all facet and of which you have the lawful right to claim your fund without any further delay.

This is to let you bring to your notice that we have just been informed through a secrete source that the U.S Custom Authority at (JFK) are making arrangement to have your contract fund wired into the Bank account of Mrs Jane Frederick, the lady that contacted them, earlier and presented some documentation evidencing your claim purported to have been signed personally by you for the release of your contract fund to her, since you have chosen to ignore their messages and refuse to pay the required $130.00 for Custom Clearance Certificate C.C.C. charges as imposed, despite of the advice we gave to you.

I want to personally assure you once again that you will have every course to smile and be happy upon conclusion of this project, as we will continue monitoring all your services with them at all level as well as your correspondence, until you have received your Metal Trunk Box accordingly., we are here to protect your interest and that is the reason why we are doing all we can to make sure all goes well, this is a huge amount of money which we don’t wish for you to lose. We understand that the imposed fee might be too much for you to pay so to further make things easier for you, we have discussed with the U.S Custom Authority at (JFK) John F. Kennedy International Airport New York pleaded on your behalf for them to give you the grace of sending half of the charges which will be only $130 for now after which the Diplomatic Agent deliver your consignment trunk box to you then once you receive your fund, you can then pay the remaining balance of $250.

All we want you to do right now is to send half of the money with the name listed below so we can forward it to Fort Wayne Indiana Customs authority to help us obtain the Custom Clearance Certificate C. C.C. and the diplomat will make the delivery to your home address tomorrow morning.

This is an official notification and we advise you treat it with utmost urgency, in your best interest. God bless you!

Yours in service Mr ibrahim lamorde,

(EFCC) DIRECTOR, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission

Address: 15A, Awolowo Rd, Cotonuew”

Now that you’ve got the idea of how these emails sound like, let’s take a look at how scammers operate. In order to release the funds, they say they need your help. You will be provided with an attorney’s number or somebody who will apparently take care of the whole process in that foreign country and you are supposed to call him, to arrange the details.

To start the process, the lawyer will ask you to pay a few ‘small fees’, say $300. Unfortunately, many victims usually pay knowing that they will get a good chunk of the money/inheritance later on. Of course, that never happens.

 

How to avoid:

This scam is as old as the Internet. Never fall for a request for help in getting money out of a foreign country. The scammers know that a large proportion of the people they contract through e-mail or Facebook messages are not knowledgeable enough to recognize that this is just a scam.

 

How to report:

Make your family and friends aware of this scam by sharing it on social media using the buttons provided. You can also officially report the scammers to the Federal Trade Commission using the link below:

Report Scammers To The FTC Here

  2. Here is what i have got, from the famous Bloomberg lol – beware:
    Good Day,
    I am Michael R. Bloomberg an American businessman, politician, author, and philanthropist. I am the founder, CEO, and owner of Bloomberg L.P, and the founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies. I have also served as the 108th Mayor of New York City in New York State of the United States of America.
    References:
    https://www.forbes.com/profile/michael-bloomberg/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Bloomberg
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloomberg_Philanthropies
    Your email was obtained from a web log and I felt strongly about writing to you and I appreciate you for writing back as I have expected. The intention of reaching out to you is to be of great financial blessing to you, because at my age i cannot continue to amass so much wealth without giving back to the society which is the sole purpose why i founded the Bloomberg Philanthropies in 2004 and became a member of The Giving Pledge, a campaign to encourage wealthy people to contribute a majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes.
    Bloomberg Philanthropies was established as a formal means of helping to improve the lives of mankind through charitable giving. Bloomberg Philanthropies focuses its resources on five areas: the environment, public health, the arts, government innovation and education. This time myself and the CEO of Bloomberg Philanthropies ( Patricia Harris ) have decided to give cash donations to individuals and private entities.
    Therefore today I have decided to give you the sum of ($2,900,000.00 USD), all you have to do is follow the required procedure to claim it. I am doing this now as a form of charity to mankind and it is my hope that you are able to receive this money and probably help others from it too so that many can benefit from it. The COVID-19 pandemic marks an unprecedented time in modern history that requires the best of humanity to overcome a challenge I will not shy away from.
    It was my CEO’s idea to give out cash donations to individuals deeply rooted in local communities and since then we have been making private deposits which has resulted in a huge amount within a short period of time.
    I am glad I am able to give this Two point Nine million U.S Dollars to you because I am certain some other people will benefit from it directly or indirectly.
    Now, all that been said, if you know you are ready to receive the ($2,900,000.00 USD) Kindly introduce yourself to me in the format below:
    Full Names:
    Contact Address:
    Nationality:
    Age:
    Occupation:
    Phone Number:
    After receiving your personal details as I have requested above, I shall then give you a letter which you will use to claim and receive the funds that have been donated to you from the processing bank. This is my personal money so it does not need too many formal procedures to claim the funds, some beneficiaries have received theirs while others are in the process.
    My only term is that you be good to others.
    Kind Regards,
    Michael Rubens Bloomberg & Harris Patricia
    Bloomberg philanthropies

    And here is more on the scam I just sent:

    APPROVAL NOTIFICATION UPDATE AND LEGAL PROCEDURE TO PROCESS THE REQUEST OF YOUR PARTNER ( Ma.CHARLLOTE FLORES)
     
    Your details were sent to us by Ma. CHARLLOTE FLORES as her relative to inherit her late husband’s cash deposit in a secured Trunk Save Box in our Security Vaults department as her foreign Partner and new beneficiary.

    Our Legal firm has been mandated to process her request on your behalf in case you cannot come here in person. Having secured the power of attorney, we shall give you the best of our services and advise.

    This legal Department has applied for an affidavit of oath and change of beneficiary ownership in your name to back the release of the deposit so that you receive it through bank to bank transfer or Diplomatic Courier Cash Delivery to your doorstep. This is because the deposit is already in a save trunk in our bank security vaults for dispatching. This process will be faster.

    Secondly, With the details you provided, we will process the affidavit to legalize the process in order for you to receive the funds as soon as possible. We will get back to you shortly.

    Thanks for your cooperation and prompt response to serve you better.

  9. Usual scam but if it helps anyone avoid clicking links in it or providing scammers with any personal information it’s worth posting here. The email came from: Russell, Eric C – the email address was: [email protected] – subject was: ‘RE: GIFT A donation is made to you by Mr. François Pinault’ and "A donation is made to you by Mr. François Pinault" was the text in the body of the email – asks you to reply to an email address ([email protected]) that is also the link. Needless to say I did not bother to click the link or reply!

Your contact was submitted to me by Google Management Team and you received this email because I have shortlisted you as one of the lucky recipients. I and my family are grateful to God for this fortune and i thank him so much for the smiles he has put on our faces, so in turn I have decided to put smiles on the faces of other people.

    You see God works in miraculous ways, You may be wondering why you received the email, i know this is funny to you right?,I check my ticket online after the drawing and was in shock at what I saw, I said to myself these look like my numbers I tried to remain calm and didn’t sleep the rest of the night, I know you would be wondering in your heart and mind if this is for real but don’t panic it is well.

  12. Just received this scam email:
    Subject: Good News for You
    A donation was made to you by Mr François Pinault Contact Via Email : [email protected] More Details.

    The email for "more details" is a variation of one used in earlier/other scams. The email came to me from "LIU, Pike <[email protected]>". APL is apparently a legitimate shipping firm in China, and Mr. Liu is listed as an employee. I am pretty sure Mr. Liu is unaware that his email is being used in this scam.

  13. I have been contacted initially by an person called Mr Andrew Forrest which was the main donor and the 2nd person was Mr Anthony Sluiter which was the intermediary men and apparently the financial executive of the Australian G&C Mutual bank and I’ve got several emails send respectively from . The scam involved another intermediary bank which was Turkish Finance and the beneficiary would be a person called Mr Chibuike Beneth Onuoha . I’ve almost fell for this well elaborated scam , but something didn’t felt right and I made a research online and came across your site and that’s when it clicked and thank god I didn’t send any money ! Here is the scammer’s email:

    and that the funds where ready to be credited into my account after paying a fee ! From a fake Anthony Sluiter:

    Attn Dear,

    I am Mrs. Jennifer Njiofor, the Chair holder in charge of Treasury
    Department, International wire transfers of Benin Republic Federal
    Ministry of Finance. You are to reply through this my official email
    address ([email protected]) because this is to inform you that
    your fund was brought to my desk because the director & management of
    the WESTERN UNION & MONEY GRAM transfer have declared to divert your
    fund to the government treasury account just because you can not pay
    the wire transfer fee. In reasoning wisely to this complain I told
    them to wait until I hear from you so that I will know the reason why
    you decide to reject such amount of money $3.5Million USD which is
    your rightful & legal overdue inheritance payment just because of
    transfer fee.

    The reason why I sent this email to you is because its your right and
    for this reason you still have this last chance to claim your fund if
    you can send $145.00 USD today because I have already arranged your
    wires ready for its daily wires to you but failing to do this, I will
    allow them to have power over your fund and I am very sorry if you
    failed as this is the last chance.

    today and email your full name and address to me if you want your
    $3.5Million USD be send to you by western union OR Money gram transfer
    but the maximum amount officially allow for it per day wire to you is
    $8,500.00 USD per day until you receive your complete $3.5Million USD
    from here. The second option is for you to send me the full detail of
    your bank account if you want your fund to be fully transfer by direct
    bank to bank wire transfer to your account at once. After you have
    sent the $145.00 and email me the MTCN numbers, you are to indicate
    your wish to receive your funds as I have stated above and the funds
    will be released to you without any hitch.

    Here is the western union or money gram information in the name of my
    accountant to avoid delay in receiving your fund and remember that I
    have done my best for you and I will make sure that your wire will
    begin to be released to you from the moment you sent this $145.00.
