The approval of your grant was contained in a decision passed across to me by my principal Mackenzie Bezos the President Mackenzie Bezos of network.

    However the registration fee to process your request alongside membership is $550.00 only and it's payment precedes your request process.

    It is also called membership fee as our assistance are meant for those who are fully part and parcel of this renowned organization.

    I will wait to know your next line of action with specifics to when you intend to forward the registration fee.

    Thanks . . . Live and learn.

    Got me. I have never responded to any message of philanthropy before. Typically, the Email is never opened and trashed. I did inquire about this message and provided no personal information. The initial message was benign. The follow up, by the scammer, ignored my questions and asked for personal information. I was curious and feel foolish.

      But it's only the fools and unthinkable individuals will fail into this or any scam
