Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the so-called donated money. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.

Recipients of the "Carlos Slim Helu Donation" scam emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the email messages instead. For those who have responded, they should be careful going forward because they will be contacted by scammers who will attempt to scam them.

    I have received such an email. I did not send any money to these individuals. Since Mr. Helu is aware of these scams, why won't he do something to stop these scammers from hurting innocent people?
