Beware of  "Lee Shau Kee Foundation" Donation Scam

Mr. Lee Shau Kee 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 Lee Shau Kee Foundation, 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.
