Subject: Charity Donation
My name is Jeffrey Stuart Skoll, OC. I'm the founder of one of the largest private foundations in the world. I'm on a mission to give it all away as I believe in ‘giving while living.’ I always had the idea that never changed in my mind — that wealth should be used to help each other which has made me decide to donate to you. Kindly acknowledge this message and I will get back to you with more details.

If the recipients send their information, the scammers will use it or sell it to other scammers. The same scammers or others will use the information to contact the recipients and ask them to send money in order to receive their so-called donations. But, if the recipients send their money, the scammers will take it and disappear, leaving the victims broke and depressed.
Jeffrey Skoll is a Canadian billionaire who built his fortune as eBay's first full-time hire and president in 1995. Although Mr. Skoll said he will be giving away his wealth to charity like Mr. Bill Gates and Mr. Buffett, he would not send out random emails to his recipients. And, he would never request personal information via email messages or ask his recipients to send money in order to claim their so-called donations.
