The images of the hoax above were altered. The information on the piece of paper that Bill Gates is holding was removed and replace with the hoax text that is mentioned above.

The original image has the text "Hi Reddit! this is bill gates", the Reddit logo and a cartoon image of Bill Gates.

So, please stop sharing the hoax on Facebook.use the Facebook "Report story or Spam" button, located at the top right corner of the post, to report it to Facebook. If you see the same photo of Bill Gates, with different information on the piece paper he is holding, it is a fake. Persons will continue to create their own versions of the hoax.

I know times are tough and everyone would like a free $5,000 payout to help them with the financial burden they are currently facing, but you won't be paid and do not go blaming Bill Gates.
