Beware of the "Amancio Ortega Donation Funds" Scam Created by Online Scammers

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

Mr. Amancio Ortega is not sending email messages to individuals around the world requesting their personal information or money in order to receive a donation from him. Therefore, online users who have received email messages like the one below, claiming they have been selected to receive millions of dollars from the Amancio Ortega 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.

Please continue reading below.

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.

    This is ridiculous. All of this technology and google can't even work with their team to provide a firewall for such scammers. Hopefully no one is gullible enough to actually send their information or money. I have once been scammed in a sense of sending $100 in order to receive $1000.

    You live and you learn, I'm still young. However, we have personal information in these emails that we use to also send information to our employers. Are they able to access our emails once we open the message like a virus? RIDICULOUS.

      Yes I did receive a lot of emails stating that I have 5 millions dollars coming to me. But I had to pay through western union 55.00 in order to get this money.

      This person claims to be a reverend and this person will not stop sending me emails asking for me to pay. I told him several times to stop sending me emails because the real person did not send me no emails asking for me to pay a fee through western union.
