Beware of Maureen and David Kaltschmidt Nickel 95 Trust USA Lottery Donation Scam

Online users are asked to be aware of Maureen Smith and David Kaltschmidt Nickel 95 Trust USA lottery donation scams. The names of the Florida couple, who won $327 million in the Florida Powerball Jackpot, are being used by scammers in an attempt to trick potential victims into sending money and personal information. The scammers claim their potential victims were randomly selected to receive donations from the lottery winners as part of their charity project (Maureen Smith Foundation or David Kaltschmidt Foundation). But, David Kaltschmidt and Maureen Smith are not randomly donating money to people around the world.

Please continue below.

A Sample of the Maureen and David Kaltschmidt Lottery Donation Scam

Maureen and David Kaltschmidt

Nickel 95 Trust Foundation
Melbourne, Florida, USA

Dear,

A touching email we read actually inspired us to do this. We decided with the support of our foundation team to voluntarily donate part of our won lottery funds to you and 4 others as a charitable project to improve the lives of five different individuals all over the world. I am most grateful for your email and I use this as a medium to say thank you for writing Back. This is a lifetime opportunity and 100% legitimate! This is a direct gift from God and my family and we would love you to share in our Joy.

We may not know you, I know it sound strange and weird, but since you were randomly chosen by God to receive this cash donation of $ 500,000.00 from our Foundation, You must be a God fearing individual. As christians we do believe that good things happen to those who wait upon the Lord, The main reason why we decided to share part of this lottery funds among other individuals who are in need is according to the God words that teaches about giving, Note also that we are not media fanatics and do not believe in publicizing our charity works to get worldly praises. We have taken care needs of my immediate family members & friends, and have donated anonymously to Hospitals & Charity Organizations in Africa, Asia and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes.

But haven't said that, You must note that we are not just ready to give up these funds just like that. My wife and I would love to know if you can handle these funds, Do you work? Do you have an idea what it takes to manage Half a Million Dollars? Could you please tell us about yourself and your present occupation?

Also kindly write to us about your view & plans on spending these fund that MAY BE entrusted to you! We need to be convinced that you are capable of managing such an amount and most importantly we shall also take time out to visit your country and do a follow up supervision on the projects you have listed.

Please provide the following details about yourself also so our legal team can reach you should need be:
*Your Names
*Address of Residence
*Mobile Numbers

May God bless your heart to be a blessing to your family & friends. Congratulations once again.

Remain Blessed,
Maureen & David Kaltschmidt
Nickel 95 Trust USA.

Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the donated money.

But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.

Recipients of the Maureen and David Kaltschmidt lottery scam emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the email messages instead.

It is important to remember that when someone contacts you, claiming that you have won the lottery or you are the recipient of millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery winnings or prizes, it is a SCAM. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to receive their prizes or winnings. And, why would lottery winners who are allegedly donating millions of dollars to you, want you to send a few hundred or thousand dollars for banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax? Well, the money that the scammers want the victims to send, which the scammers claim is for taxes, bank transfer cost, insurance or other expenses, is what the scammers will steal. And, the victims, on the other hand, will never receive the winnings, prizes or money that they were promised.

So, once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.

    I did receive one of these emails from "Maureen & David Kaltschmidt". But then I received a notice from a "Gabriel Pancza" that I had to pay "$260.00" to open an account with a Turkish.

    (Turkish????) bank so that a "$250,000" cheque from Maureen would then be deposited in the bank. I suspected it was a scam since no one who is giving money away requires them to be charged to open an account. Ridiculous what is now going on with these terrible people who use others' names to scam people.

    Assunto: RE: Our 2018 Fund Donation Support (Payment Information)

    Hello Friend,

    Happy New Year to you and your entire Family!

    We hope 2018 brings you happiness and joy! We will be starting 2018 organised through our charitable donation platform "The Nickel 95 Trust Foundation" in our geographical charity investment units covering Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America and the Rest of the World; My entire family is pleased to read your reply to us. My name is David Kaltschmidt and my wife Maureen Smith and we lived in Melbourne Beach, Florida, USA. We won the Powerball jackpot lottery of $529,784,000.00 but received the winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $327.8 million before taxes on the February 19th, 2016 through our foundation "The Nickel 95 Trust Foundation" and we have decided to also use this medium to spread our wealth through charitable donation round the world; we want to use this medium to give out a donation of $950,000.00 (Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) each to Five (10) lucky individuals world wide as charity funds and for their personal business development and enhancement of children educational plans. This arrangement will allow us to be more nimble and efficient in allocating our support back to our communities.

    For almost a year now after my retirement, we have been busy with a lot of charitable and philanthropic activity through our Foundation "The Nickel 95 Trust" among other voluntary associations, individual, NGO's for community services and educational benefit within communities. Supporting philanthropic activities is part of our Foundation humanitarian mission to promote ethical social change and foster a universal sense of responsibility regardless of race, color, ethnicity as we are all humans. We have assisted the local fire department in California, the Red Cross, All Hands who currently handle the current Hurricane hit in our states like Florida, North Carolina, and Texas and currently countries like Puerto Rico, Haiti, some hospitals majorly involved in cancer treatment, and some other charity organizations in Africa, Asia and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes, then this year we decided to donate more to Individuals and we told some ministers about our decision which they have also been of great support, prayers and advice. So if you are getting this letter from me this month it means you have been chosen by my family and I with the assistance from The Nickel 95 Trust Foundation, Powerball Florida Lottery and Gaming Board and Microsoft/Google Corporation to receive $950,000.00 (Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) after taxes, We have paid all taxes!

    We have departed our neighborhood for some months now where we have to relocate to France due to our illness and a lot of taxes adding to our poor health been a cancer patient, our Families and able minister's advice us to move to any European continent to help improve my foundation work internationally rather than paying tax weekly for nothing.

    January 29th 2018,
    This just happened to me. I got am email from a Markus Meints, saying that I was just donated 250,000.00 dollars by Maureen Smith,70 and David Kaltschmidt,55 and gave me this email address : [email protected] .

    He told me to click on that link email and go from there that Maureen and David was waiting to hear from me. Even though something inside me told me that this is too good to be true, like a stupid person I did. and I received a letter stating it was from them and so forth and all I had to do is to put my name and address down and give my phone number and age and next of kin and I would be hearing from this bank called : Kuveyt Turk Particpation Bank in Turkey.

    they gave me a reference number to give to them for verification and after I do this they would give the ok to tell the bank to transfer the money to me without further delay.

    Needless to say , I received another email from another person and it was from a Mr. Kevin Anthony phone number: 229 98589889 where ever that is and he would send 5000 dollar everyday to a Money gram store to me until 2.5 million dollars was fully paid.

    I don't know where the amount came from 250,000.00 to 2.5 million??? I have save every email and printed them off. I told them that me and my husband both are disable and need money and it was a blessing from God, but I always knew something was wrong. So I went and investigated them on my own. I looked them up on the FBI website and so forth.

    On every email that they sent to me I expressed to them that if anything is fraudulent that I would hunt them down and I will.

    So Maureen and David if you had anything to do with this beware I am very sick with a heart condition and my husband had his feet crushed at work and is 70 years old and is disable too. This is not funny it is a bad and terrible thing to do to sick or any person or family in need.

    As I said in all of my emails to you Maureen and David, you better not behind any of this?? My husband and I are good people with health problems and really needed that money and thought that the good lord above was behind this, but something told me to look you two guys up on the internet and I found his web page.

    Sincerely, Lorena and Paul.

    I too received the same solicitation for personal information from these people. I didn’t bother to include the text as it’s identical. I did receive an additional one from another individual saying there was $8 million available then all we had to do was go to the Western Union and send $150. I continued with the gentleman to the point that I said to him I needed picture IDs so I would feel comfortable. Well don’t you know he sent me a picture identification of two names one was supposed to be the United nations representative as this program was affiliated with United Nations and the country was Johannesburg Benin. I strongly encourage anyone who ever received any type of you have one or you are entitled to solicitation to remember this there are no free lunches.

    I’m not saying that everybody is a crook but sadly many individuals believe that they are the lucky recipients. Very often they include reference to God and they pray towards senior citizens. The two solicitations I received were targeted towards my mother. And she knows that these type of solicitations are fake. One other tip I’d like to add watch out for these offers for so many different products that say it’s free and all you have to pay is $4.95 but be assured you at that time will probably be subscribing to an AutoShip for some product that’s going to cost you about $100 a month and it will take two or three months to get straightened out. They often will include faces of celebrities endorsements by television programs. Be careful be careful be careful be careful be careful be careful

    Thank you sincerely for the information given. I too was just sent this message from someone claiming to be David Kaltschmidt offering to select me to give a 5 million dollar prize. The email was sent to my email and I will now report it to Spam. Thank you for the heads up and it's nice to know it is good in the world we live in. I believe the money was divine intervention for the Kaltschmidt family to continue God's work. I Googled them to read their story and it couldn't have went to better people. May they continue to be blessed with health to accommodate their new wealth. I am a Cancer survivor and think it's sickening that someone would use another's hardship to acquire money for their own financial gain. SHAME!

    David and Maureen. I was sincerely happy to receive the scam where I
    was going to get $850,000.00, but I know a David and Maureen in my town
    and I called them up to thank them. Then I looked you up on the internet
    and I guess there a lot of people in the same situation!! The scam has just started so I have not sent them any money, thank God. So now I am relieved to find out, so I won't send them anything. God Bless and keep you and yours.

    It is very funny that THEY are the ones ending up being "STOOPID" for believing that I believe they want to give me $850,000 for nothing and if you read further down their letter they say they aren't wanting anything from me or that they will steal my identity: "I do not want to ask you for your ID as we do not want to leave an impression in your mind that we want to steal your identity, i want to know more about you, your family and if you have kids and how many and all that. I do hope that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously over there in your country."
    Yeah and I've got a bridge I want to sell to them!! LOL

    Hello Friend,

    Thanks for your response.

    My entire family is pleased to read your reply to us. Our names are David Kaltschmidt & Maureen Smith, I and my partner both live Florida, We won the Florida Powerball Jackpot worth sum of $327 million and have decided to spread our wealth through charitable donation round the world; we want to use this medium to give out a donation of US$850,000.00 (Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) to you as charity funds and for your personal business development and enhancement of children educational plans.

    I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and i want to assure you that you will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do. Although we know each other for the first time but i believe our father in heaven has directed me to you as i prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because i saw your profile on a list of registered email addresses provided to me by Microsoft list/Google list from which i picked you. After winning my jackpot prize, i have departed my neighborhood for some months now where we have to relocate to France due to taxes and other purposes.

    ...

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

    Regards,

      I love messing with these people too! It's a blast. I say some of the dumbest stuff possible and they still fall for it. Hopefully by us wasting these scammers time, they can't find other people that will actually do it. Who is dumb enough to actually send these people money?! It devastates me for them.

    Greetings 

    My entire family is pleased to read your reply to us. I am Mrs Maureen Smith, 70 of Melbourne Beach Florida, a winner of jackpot drawing held on January 13, 2016. Presently on a humanitarian tour which is part of our personal endeavor each year even before winning the lottery.

    After winning the lottery it became done on us that we could no longer stay in the States for security reasons, another lottery winner who won lesser amount than us same last year and previously have been targeted which has lead to several malicious physical attack and threats. We have resolved to stay away from home for now and will be finally settling in the UK for now and will return home and also relocate to a different city within the State when the time is appropriate.
     
    As a trustee for NICKEL 95 TRUST like to cease this opportunity of becoming a Powerball lottery winner to further broaden our horizon in reaching out to a lot more of individuals, organisations and NGO out there by engaging in humanitarian work, hence you have been picked as a beneficiary. For this same reason, I have received my winning in the name of the Trust/Foundation.

    My Powerball Jackpot of $528.7million on January 2016 was a gift from God after a deliberate and persistent effort over the years.   I believe no matter what you might have achieved over the year through personal effort, you could do more if given a better platform.   As a trustee I like to entrust the sum of 3,600,000 USD to you as our beneficiary, I believe that good things happen to those who wait and also I believe just the same way I did not give up on my lottery attempt over the year, so I’m counting on you to be positive and to be joyful as this is an opportunity to do more in any sector of life you are involved in.

    Dear,

    Thanks for your swift reply. My jackpot was a gift from God to me and my entire family has agreed to do the will of God. I may not know you, but i believe if you were chosen by God to receive my donation of $3,550,000 dollars, You must be a God fearing individual. I am a catholic and i believe that Good things happens to those people who wait and also believe.Please be rest assured, that this is 100% legitimate.

    I have decided to donate the sum of $3,550,000 USD to you as part of my Yearly charity project to improve the lives of lot many individuals in your local area from my $61.5 Million dollars Jackpot Lottery winning funds.My Sympathy for the sorrows of others has been heightened by the tragedy in my life. My father took his own life in 2005 and a few years after, one of my daughter died of overdoes in 2010 two months before her 27th birthday. I am doing this not to gain fame as a matter of fact, I have decided to put this away from the media and my sole purpose of doing this was as a result of a long talk with my only surviving children and my husband who has always advised me to donate to strangers this year before i die. We know that there are lots of families out there who live on pay check to pay check and others that cannot take care of their financial obligations. Although, I have helped some charity organizations, family members, strangers and friends from my winnings.

    I have cancer and the doctor informed us that i might not live long to see the early of next year. My wishes are to do good things before i finally depart this sinful world. My children and my husband are all I have got now and they mean the whole world to me. I have decided to fulfill my wish this Year. I would like you to invest this funds in a lucrative business to create more job opportunity to help jobless and needy people in your locality as we have already donated money to the local fire department, the red cross, I have assisted Schenck High School in Maine, Indonesia earthquake victims, hospitals in Truro where i underwent my cancer treatment, and some other organizations in Asia and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. We just kept just 7% of the entire lottery sum to our self for the raining days and which I am still spending on my treatments bills to facilitate the disbursement process of the funds ($3,550,000 dollars) which have been donated solely to you, You are to send me your full names, address and phone number for disbursement(I asked for this brief information just to know who we are donating this money to and because of the Identity theft going around the internet which I have been a victim in the past, I do not want to ask you for your ID as we do not want to leave an impression in your mind that I want to steal your identity). I am hoping that you will be able to use the funds judiciously over there in your state. We will employ you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty in your region and also try to enhance the standard of living of as many people as you can because that is the only objective of donating this funds to you in the first place. We would like you to re-assure us that you will follow our instructions and help me fulfill this dream before I would provide you with information on how you will receive this funds and if you feel you cannot handle this project, you should inform me so I can quickly look for another individual to donate the money to. If you have any question please don't hesitate to ask.I anticipate to hear from you soon.

    God bless you and Warm Regards,
    Maureen Smith

      Never ending list of scammers, apparently, some people do pay them.

      On the American Greed TV show they featured a scam system like this where the guy was in Africa selling lists of potential victims (people that pay) once they have you in their sights as a responsive sucker, they will keep sending you scam emails. I get them so I must be on a list somewhere. Googling always confirms they are scammers.

      Also, I have a collection of fake cashiers checks I received for craigslist scammers. At least, they had to spend money on express mailing the fake checks.
