    "I received a scam message on my cell phone from R. Patrick Connolly from fpatri76797@outlook.com stating that they are the family of Frances and Patrick Connolly from County Down, Northern Ireland U.K. further stating that they would be “donating” $500,000.00 to me.

    I was to forward the following from my personal email account: My name, address, county, age, s*x, occupation, and phone number to fpc765@aol.com."

    Received via email.

  • June 29, 2020 at 1:57 AM by an anonymous user from: Arlington, Texas, United States

    Hello, I received a text message from persons claiming to be Frances and Patrick Connolly, but it was much more detailed and specific than those shown on your site. They told me their ages, 54 and 52 years of age, told me they were from Northern Ireland U.K. He says he is a business man and a Christian, his wife is a teacher. They said they contacted some ministers to help them get a list of people who can help others with their donation and "put a smile in the face of the needy." They even said that they would be glad for me to come visit them after their donation gets to me. They did ask for personal information (full name, address and country, age, s*x, occupation, phone number). But they did not ask for any financial information. Is it possible that this could be genuine, or is it a scam? Thank you for your help.

      same here brother. I am going along with it at the age of 20 I am risking it all. GOD IS AN ALL POWERFUL GOD WHO HAS MERCY AND HE FORGIVES SND TEACHES. If this does end up being a lie, then we will be blessed while they burn

    • June 29, 2020 at 3:32 AM by info

      It is a scam. They will ask for personal information first, which they will sell to other scammers. Then, they will ask for money.
