Beware of "Mrs. Gloria C. Mackenzie" Donation or Grant Foundation Scams

Recipients of fake text or email messages similar to the ones below, which claim that Mrs. Gloria C. Mackenzie, the 84-year-old woman who won $590.5 million in the Powerball, is donating millions of dollars to randomly selected individuals, is a scam being sent by cyber criminals to their potential victims. Therefore, recipients of the same text or email messages are asked to delete them, and should not respond to them.

Please continue below.

If a recipient responds to the fake or text or email message, he/she will be asked to send money in order to receive their so-called donation or grant. But, once the money is sent and received by the scammers, they will take collect it and disappear. Remember, once you are asked to send money in order to receive a lottery prize, donation or grant for a lottery game or event that you did not sign up for, it is a scam.
