Online users, beware of fake Donation emails like the ones below being sent by online scammers. The aim of the scammers is to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information. Then, the scammers will subsequently ask their potential victims to send them money before they can received their so-called grant. But, if the money is sent, the scammers will take it and disappear, and the victims will not get the grant they were promised.

Currently I'am undergoing severe ailment and close medical treatment, and my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the problems I'am suffering from. At this moment I want to use this funds to up-keep all widows and charities homes worldwide.
