Marvin and Mae Acosta, the winners of the largest lottery prize in California Lottery history, are not sending email messages to individuals around the world requesting their personal information or money in order to receive a donation from them. Therefore, online users who have received email messages like the one below, claiming they have been selected to receive millions of dollars from the Marvin and Mae Acosta Donation Fund, are asked to delete them. This is because the email messages are fakes being sent by online scammers, who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information.
Once the online scammers have received their potential victims' information, they will use it to contact the same potential victims and attempt to scam them. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to send them money in order to collect their so-called donation. But, if the money is sent, the scammers will take it and disappear, leaving the victims broke and depressed. The scammers will also sell their potential victims' information to other scammers, so the same victims will be contacted multiple times.
Remember, once you asked to send personal information or money in order to receive a donation via an unsolicited email message, it is an online scammer attempting to rob you.

Mr. Acosta donates to you.
Its heart warming to receive a response from you, but first, we will love to introduce our selves, I am Marvin Acosta , and my wife's name is Mae Acosta, we are the Chino Hills Power-ball Jackpot Winners of one-third of the historic, world record-breaking Power-ball jackpot of $1.58 Billion on January 13th 2016, and we finally came out to claim our share of the prize on July 19th 2016, which was an incredible $528.8 million, after which we were given a lump sum cash payment of $327,835,000.
We actually left the States after claiming our money and we are currently here in Luxembourg because we needed privacy and due to some previous stories we heard about some previous winners" we decided to come down here on a long vacation and to help others by donating part of our gift from God, and we also want it to be a private donation, we never had the plans of coming down here from the United States, but we were advised to do so by our attorney because, she knew there is gonna be a lot of responsibilities that is gonna come along with the win.
We just started our donation project ahead of the Xmas celebration and we are donating the sum of $1,800,000.00 U.S. Dollars to our church and 20 lucky Individuals from our $327,835,000 Jackpot, not because the money is too much but because we want the money to go round, and please, we will like you to assist as much as you can, with this money as soon as it gets to you, most especially, the needy around you, although we are just knowing you for the first time but we believe our heavenly father has directed us to you as we seek the advise of financial advisers and we also prayed and searched over the internet for assistance and we saw your email on a list of registered email addresses that was provided to us by Microsoft and AOL management team from which your email was selected, so if you receive this email from us, we believe you were chosen by God to receive our donation of $1,800,000.00 U.S. Dollars and we also hope that, you are a God fearing individual being a Christian or a Muslim, and as a believer, we believe that good things happens to those people who wait and also believe.
Please be rest assured that, you stand no risk as this is our money, for source and verification please click here on the Acosta family or see the link below
We are doing this not to gain fame as a matter of fact, we have decided to put this away from the media and our sole purpose of doing this was a result of a long talk with my wife who said to me ''Honey, there are families out there who still survive on pay check and some nothing'' I knew exactly what she was talking about because i have thought of it too.
We would love to introduce our selves more and also show you pictures of our lovely family but firstly we would like to know more about our winner by replying back with the below information's:

May the Good Lord bless your heart to be a blessing to your family and your society as soon as our donation gets to you.
