Scammers are sending out fake Jeffrey Epstein emails like the below, claiming the late American billionaire, who recently died in a New York prison, instructed his financial assistance to give millions of dollars to individuals for charity work. But, this is only another advance-fee scam, where the scammers will ask their potential victims to send money or gift cards in order to receive their so-called charity money.

I am Lawrence Pierre , financial assistant to late Jeffrey Epstein Financier owner, an American billionaire who died recently in new York prison.
Two days before his death he instructed me to give $10,500,000 million dollars to an individual for charity work 30% will be for you that will handle the distribution and it should be kept confidential.
He also warned me to remain anonymous to the public and that the government should not be aware of this donation.
