Would you share this Article with others?

If you have received email messages similar to the one below, which claim Françoise Bettencourt Meyers is donating millions of dollars to randomly selected individuals worldwide, please do not follow the instruction in it because it is an advance fee scam being sent by online scammers to potential victims. Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, a French billionaire heiress and author of Bible commentaries and works on Jewish-Christian relations, is not randomly giving away millions to selected individuals, therefore, recipients of email messages which claim otherwise are asked to delete them.

    I was contacted via email this yesterday, Nov. 7, 2019 by someone claiming to be the heir of the Bettencourt Meyers Estate. I am so appalled by these scammers online and on our phones as well trying to get our information to scam with. I wish that it would stop; we have enough problems just trying to survive from one day to the next!

    I wish it were true due to the reasons I even am using the Internet to do business daily but, I don't need anymore headaches.

    So, would you please beware that this is going on!

    Sincerely,

    Patricia Scott-Washington

    I got this same one today. I did reply, but I told them that unless they brought the money to me and just handed it to me I wouldn't believe it. Then I deleted it. A little later I got another email telling me f*** you and to never send them that again.

  • October 29, 2019 at 8:13 AM by an anonymous user from Bangkok, Thailand

    The first letter from the scammer is enough to sound the alarm bells:

    1) Madam Bettencourt Meyers has two sons, but the scammer writes "... my only son."

    2) The written language is terrible and full of errors and random use of words starting with a capital letter.

    3) The syntax tells me that the writer is from Africa, not France.

    4) The scammer tells you that you will get 3.5 million USD, which is 10 % of 30.5 million USD. The math doesn't add up. And the currency in France is euro, not US dollar.

    The second letter instructs you to contact NIC Bank PLC on an email address ending with nicbn.co.uk. This domain was registered on 26th October 2019. NIC Bank is based in Kenya and doesn't have any branches in Europe.

    And the list goes on and on...
