Beware of "Mrs Betty Wolf" Inheritance Donation Scams

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

Online users who have received email messages like the one below from a so-called Mrs. Betty Wolf who wants to donate her so-called inheritance to them, should delete the same messages. This is because the messages are phishing scams. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money.

Please continue reading below.

The scammers, pretending to be Mrs. Betty Wolf, trick their potential victims into sending them their information by claiming they will receive her inheritance or donation. Once the scammers have gotten their potential victims information, they will subsequently contact them and ask them to send money in order to claim their donation. But, if the potential victims send their money, the scammers will collect it and disappear.

Remember, never send money to receive donations or lottery prizes. And, once you are asked to do so, it is more than likely a scam.

    Here is another scam:

    "Be Blessed In the Name Of God

    Permit me to inform you, My name is Mrs.Betty Wolf from from Cote d'Ivoire, I am 59 years old, I am suffering from a long time Cancer of the breast. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my Doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond next 3 months,this is Because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage.

    I was brought up in a Motherless baby home, and was married to my late husband for twenty years with no child, but we have only one adopted daughter her name is Miss Alice Wolf.My late husband deposited the sum of $8.5 million United States dollars here in Cote d'Ivoire Presently, this money is still with the financial institution, I want you to use this money to take care of my only adopted daughter Alice and also invest the money into a very good LUCRATIVE VENTURE of your choice that will be giving out proceeds to be distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless baby homes, orphanage Homes and elderly people around. I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, But I had to take a bold step towards this issue because I have no further option.

    I hope you will help see my last wishes come true.

    Best regards,

    Mrs.Betty Wolf."
