Lisa and John Robinson Legal Representative

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 Lisa and John Robinson lottery donation scam emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them, they should delete them instead.

It is important to remember that when someone contacts you, claiming that you have won the lottery or you are the recipient of millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery winnings or prizes, it is a SCAM. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to receive their prizes or winnings. And, why would lottery winners who are allegedly donating millions of dollars to you, want you to send a few hundred or thousand dollars for banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax? Well, the money that the scammers want the victims to send, which the scammers claim is for taxes, bank transfer cost, insurance or other expenses, is what the scammers will steal. And, the victims, on the other hand, will never receive the winnings, prizes or money that they were promised.

So, once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.

    From: CHARITY FOUNDATION <officialcharityfoundation@worldorgcharity.org>

    Sent: Wednesday, April 24, 2019 11:25 AM

    Subject: My Dear Roy A Klemm

    My Dear

    This is to inform you that we acknowledge the receipt of your last email However, since we won the Power Ball Lottery, my wife and I have been investing ahead of the future , as we just bought some houses in Tennessee and also building charity foundation in Africa Kenya and we are also on vacation in Kenya because my wife mother previously work from there, so we are spending sometime there before ours second Honey Moon which will be next month in the Bahamas, but nevertheless, I have already issued a valid cheque for $1,000,000.00 USD in your name but your cheque has been deposited with CITI Bank as an international bank draft.

    The amount to be given out to you is a sum of $1,000,000 USD (One Million United State Dollars) which is actually quite a huge sum and you would agree with me that it is also quite unbelievable seeing someone give out such amount of money to any individual, that’s why we have made sure that we choose the right persons to give these out to and we hope that our aim of giving out this fund to you is achieved Note that every transfer process in getting this fund to you legally would be commenced and also note that we require you to map out good strategies in ensuring that the less privileged around your region benefits from this fortune you would be receiving from us, that is really our main aim of giving out this fund to you as we wouldn't be able to carry this task on our own without having to involve the likes of you through an Electronic Ballot System.

    Please always try and remember that the objective of this donation to you is to make a notable change in the standard of living of the less privileged people all around your region before the end of the year 2018. Note that you have only be chosen to receive this donation once, which means that subsequent yearly donation might not get to you again so we advise you to take your time and thought in spending the donation wisely on projects that will last your community for a long time to come.

    Kindly allow me to inform you that just last month alone, I and my wife Lisa discovered a huge number of double claims due to beneficiary's informing close friends relatives, attorneys and third parties about their donations, As a result these close friends, relatives, attorneys and third parties tried to claim the donation sum on behalf of the real recipients thereby causing problems for the payout bank, Please be informed that any double claim discovered in the disbursement process will certainly result to the cancellation of that particular donation, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real beneficiary, as it is taken that the real recipient was the informer to the double claimer about the donation. So you are hereby advised to keep your information's strictly confidential until your claim has been fully recovered.

    Now taking into cognizance the nature of the funds, Kenya Financial Security Act requires International beneficiaries like you to open an account with the payout bank over there in Kenya, who will be responsible for clearing the cheque in Kenya before the funds can be transferred to your designated bank account anywhere in the world, I have therefore included a Donation Code Number to this message [LJR1/001/2018BDB] which should be kept strictly confidential as you will use it in receiving your donation.

    You are to contact the management of CITI Bank, immediately as they have been authorized to clear the cheque and wire the funds to you after you must have opened an account with them and concluded all modalities associated with the wire transfer process.

    BANK NAME:CFC CITI BANK

    OFFICER NAME: IBRAHIM YOUSUF.

    EMAIL: (infocitibankonline@citiibnk.net<mailto:infocitibankonline@citiibnk.net>)

    Tel: 254-7200 39806

    Fax:00254-7200 39806

    Please note that upon your contact with the bank you are to provide them with your Donation Code Number [LJR1/001/2018BDB] so that he can verify your identity with the details we sent over to their office a while ago on and In view of this whole information passed to you, please be informed also that the bank would require you to open an account with them so as to hasten the processing, don’t panic as this is one of the routine I informed you about earlier on this email, The account when opened with them must have a minimum balance and such balance must come from you, This is being done because the account must have a minimum balance to be able to accommodate such huge amount, this is also known as opening balance, The opening balance is still your money, as when you are transferring the money from the account you opened with them, you can transfer the total amount if you wish.

    We believe this information is helpful to you and we do expect that you understand every aspect of it without being skeptic, doubtful or disbelief also ensure that you report back to us on every of your conversation with the bank as it will account for records purpose to avoid any misunderstanding.

    Your follow up and full cooperation is highly anticipated.

    Best Regards,

    Lisa & John Robinson
