    I have been approached by Dileep Rangekar on behalf of the Azim premjI Foundation and asked to receive a donation of $1.5 million US Dollars to help those in need. After some research I came up with your alert, warning of a scam. The copy of the letter you posted was the same as I received.

    I am grateful for your efforts to warn the likes of myself. the whole thing was cleverly devised, and it is easy to understand how some people get sucked in by such scams. I will revisit just to get further views and so on.

    Carry on with the good work

      Hello Azim. Unfortunately I was on the end of the scam who if I hadn't dug deeper would have gotten me into trouble. Fortunately you have some friends looking after your interest by pointing out that the whole thing is a scam.

      I live in Portugal where there are a lot of unfortunate people, I had the idea that I could help them somehow. However, upon reflection whatever the state of those in Portugal, compared to some people in other parts of the world, they are well off.

      There is poverty here no doubt, but not in comparison to people in other countries who are currently undergoing unbearable sufferings.

      I commend you on your kindness and the help you offer these people.

      Kindest regards. John.

    I am devastated and have lost everything including my respect for myself. I was desperately hoping my fears were unwanted because I needed them to be.

    Now I am destitute and have no savings. I am homeless and have no insurance of any kind. I feel hurt and stupid and worthless. There is no way to get back my money I’m sure and there’s no chance that this is the real deal after reading all the remarks from others.

    I am now too embarrassed to tell anyone what has happened to me. I have no reason to trust anyone now. And I have no reason to be here now. My goal was philanthropic and possible to reach for a minute there.
