Charles Francis Feeney

DONATION FOR YOU.

Charles Francis Feeney <charles483@office5005.onmicrosoft.com>

Hi,

My name is Charles Francis Feeney, a philanthropist and the founder of The Atlantic Philanthropies, one of the largest private foundations in the world. I believe strongly in ‘giving while living.’ I had one idea that never changed in my mind — that you should use your wealth to help people and I have decided to secretly give USD 1.9Million to randomly selected individuals worldwide. On receipt of this email, you should count yourself as the lucky individual. Your email address was chosen online while searching at random. Kindly get back to me at your earliest convenience, so I know your email address is valid.

Regards,

Charles F. Feeney

I received one of these in my email a few days ago. Good think im not gullible. It is very well written any one could be tricked into this.

I got one of these. The first thing I did was google Feeney. I got the wikipedia blurb, which I now know was written by the scammer. I followed along for a while but the warning signs became clearer and clearer. It was a bit of a surprise to me that someone will go to this much effort for USD95.
