Hi,
I am Jeffrey Skoll, a philanthropist and the founder of one of the largest private foundations in the world. My motto is giving while living and I always had the idea that never changed in my mind, that wealth should be used to help people and I have decided to give USD1.924.108.00 to you. This email address was selected online randomly while searching, kindly respond to this message so I know I reached a valid email to disclose further information.

  1. Well, I decided to reply, what with my being formerly employed in an anti-aircraft fraud role in Surrey and Berkshire.
    Imagine, thus, to receive an odd reply, to put it mildly, which I immediately felt was a little too pat. One typo in the body of the letter gave away the writer's origin. The idea behind handing over large wads of cash behind the scenes always struck me as being bogus.
    The same scenario applies here - yet another turkey hobble- gobbling its way to the front of the queue. It demonstrates how easy it is to steal a legitimate identity for a very different motive!⛔
