      There is a legit one, but there are a lot of imposters, like the one above, who are asking potential victims to send them money in the name of the charity.

      But, never send money, personal and financial information to anyone who claims to be a from the Bill and Melinda Gate Program.

    I received a text message from a former co-worker who said she had good news for me and asked if I heard about USDPCAD. I responded that I knew it was a scam and she was not my former co-worker. All conversation stopped after that. People, please do your homework

      It is a scam, the person is not your friend, just someone impersonating your friend. Call your friend via telephone to verify.

    My wife just received a txt from a supposed friend.

    She was told that her friend had received $50,000 from the US Department of People Compensation Program and that she was sharing this info with my wife.

    She was referred to a person named...get this "Larry Smith".

    The phone number was 203-408-0684.

    I'm doing a reverse phone look-up but even the lookup company is having hard time tracing it. A major scam. Will these never end!

    I just received a message about this from an old friend who I haven't talked to in years.

    When I googled it and found out it was a scam, I told "my friend" to tell me how he knew me.

    (Contacted me on Messenger.)

    Of course they instantly quit responding.

    She is a widow age approx. 65 and indicates that funds are available for disabled, self employed, retired. She has provided me with a phone number...Is this a valid program
