A long and convoluted email claiming to be from Bill Gates and offering me $5 million to do with as I wish.
Most of these scam messages contain spelling mistakes and grammatical errors but this one didn’t.
Bill and Melinda Gates have in reality donated billions of dollars to various good causes and a huge amount to their own foundation for which they work full-time to eradicate malaria and alleviate various significant world problems.
But Bill Gates certainly isn’t stupid enough to send out mass emails to unknown people offering them money for nothing.
The email goes into pointless detail about the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which is real but nothing to do with this scam then it asks for my name, address, phone number etc.
Only scammers offer to give away money to people whose name they don’t even know.
