Dear Friend,
I appreciate you for writing back as I have expected, your email was
gotten from a web journal, and was chosen online while searching at
random, Kindly get back to me at your earliest convenience to know
your email is valid. I might not know your present condition and what
you are going through in life, but I believe that this money will be
of good help to you and your family. Introducing myself, I am Bernard
Arnault, Son of Jean Arnault. I am a French Citizen, you can know more
about me from:

The intention of this email is to be of immense blessing to people, at
my age I cannot continue to amass wealth without giving out, I might
not have the liberty of time due to my ailment (Dementia) therefore,
and I am doing this now, I have handed all my wealth to my children
but there is part of it which nobody is aware of I have been putting
it away for this purpose since a long time now. I want to cede it out
as gift for you to help Orphanages homes in your country and hoping it
would be of help to you and others as this is my last wish to
appreciate God for his grace upon my life. I would have done this
myself but for my health reason and if I do it through my oldest
daughter I am very certain she will not help anyone with it, she took
me to court the last time I gave out money out of generosity.
I have make life worth living for myself and my family, all I want
from you is to be honest with me and help others from it too.

Bernard Arnault.

Mr. Arnault (or whoever),
As you may know, fraudulent emails (Spam) are common all over the internet world. So pardon me for being skeptical. But if your offer is, indeed, legitimate, I am willing to give it a try. But understand, I am not willing to provide any fees or payments in order to receive the gift you are offering. If you are who you say you are, a Billionaire, you certainly do not need funding to give gifts. So if you still wish me to be a recipient I will gladly accept. If not, and if this is a scammer using deceit and trying to scam people out of money, nice try. You're not going to succeed with me. Have a nice day.

Thanks you have responded on time, am 66 years old, and worth $34.3
billion Dollars, 10% of my worth I have been putting away in a private
deposit for a long time now and it has reached an amount of $
30,500,000.00. I do not really have much to do with it. As I send this
message to you, I am also sending to churches, Orphanages, and
individuals, 10% to you and others each to whom I have contact with
already. Now, all this being said, if you know you are ready to
receive the funds $ 3,500,000.00 (Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United State Dollars). Kindly introduce yourself in details to me:

Full Name:
Contact Address:
Phone Number:

Then will I give you a letter to receive your portion of the money
from the bank. This is my personal money and does not need many formal
procedures, some beneficiaries have received theirs. My only term is
that you be sincere to me and help the less privilege people that's
all. Please make it fast because I have only a few days to use a
computer since the doctors have given instructions to stop me from the
use of electronics.

As I wait for your response, I wish you a wonderful day.

Bernard Arnault.
