The "Michael Bloomberg Random Gifts" Scam

Michael Bloomberg is not secretly giving away gifts worth millions of dollars to randomly selected individuals worldwide. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message below, which claims he is doing so, are asked not to follow the instructions in it. This is because the fake email is being sent by online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending money. The scammers will claim the money is for taxes or fees, but once they receive their victims' money, they will take it and disappear.

    I got the same email as shown above from Mike Bloomberg wanting to donate 5 million dollars to me out of the blue. I was pretty sure it was a scam but played along for awhile, i'm glad I didn't give out personal information or Bank account information. I guess it's like they say "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"! This one was a bit of a shocker because it looked so legitimate.
