Our founder and CEO, Charles Chuck Feeney has indeed been a great Philanthropist to this generation and is truly committed to “giving while living,” and his decision to end his requirement of anonymity stems from this value.

We (Atlantic Philanthropies) just recenlty organised and launched ourinternet donation program as this will enable us reach out to more people outside the shores of the United States and England so they too can benefit from the fortune of Mr. Feeney and our foundation as a whole.

Many other major philanthropists look primarily to support large institutions and not individuals which is absolutely wrong thus we are changing such with this program.

The launch of this internet/mobile donation program came up so as to avoid unsolicited pleas for donations and to avoid the idea of people feeling indebted to him/us.

    I have received the same message as the first one you have listed. Strange thing is, it is appearing as a notification attached to the calendar on my Android phone. I haven't received it via any other method. No email or message, just as an alert notification on my Samsung Galaxy S6. Does this mean my phone has been compromised?

      It is possible that you may have installe a malicious app that is displaying the notifications.

      Delete all unknown apps, or apps that you are not using.

        The newest and latest app I had installed just before the message began was one called 'WALKIT'. Whether this is a coincidence I can't say.

          Apps make money by displaying advertisements to users, therefore, it seems the scammers are using legitimate advertisement companies to distribute their scams.

    Just received an identical letter today from Charles F Feeney (notice @google.com), with the following web page link to learn more about him (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2373420/).

    I'd love to believe that I was randomly chosen to be gifted $2.5 million, but I know better. Hope this scammer is caught before too many people are duped and fleeced!

      I, receive the same email on July 30, 2105. I responded telling the person who sent it that I know this is a scam ! Even after I replied to the first email I got another one today July 32, 2015, asking for my personal information. (I only replied to see just how far this scammer would try and take things.) I would never send my personal information to anyone that I hadn't contacted first!

      My email said that this, really nice:

      "man)..lol.. wanted to give me a million, nine hundred thousand... Nobody does that ! It, made me angry enough that I wrote back telling them, that I knew it was a scam, and that the next thing they would want me to do would be to send them money, (to help pay for the funds transfer).

      It, really sickens me to know that these people, prey on innocent people, who really are in desperate need of help ! I'm not a spring chick, (by any means) but, I'm older and thankfully I know better than to believe some stranger is willing to just randomly give away that kind of money ! I live in the USA.. My state is Alabama. So, this scam is travelling the globe! I agree 100% that I hope this scammer is caught, before they can dupe and fleece anyone that they haven't already done this to!"

    I have received one of these donations and the last email states that the money is coming from a bank in India to be. Deposited in the bank of my choice. This money is to be deposited without the foundations knowledge. This is the clue that things are not on the up and up. I'm not a wealthy person but I don't want to lose what I do have.

      I received an almost identical email, only the benefactor was identified as one "George B. Kaiser," with the same identified philanthropy. Couldn't believe that they also gave the man's website and invited me to Google his name; how stupid is that? Wanted my full name, current address, occupation, and phone number, none of which I provided.
