Name Carlos Slim Helu    

Details of Scam Report
Okay, a couple of nights ago, I received an email from this person claiming to be Carlos Slim Helu. I do not watch TV, and I do not keep up with Multi-Billionaires, so I had never even heard of him before I got this email--but I did check out the name, and learned that this is a real person. However, I knew that the email sender could very well be an impostor, and I wanted to make sure. I did not want to just blow it off...because if i blew it off and then it turned out to be genuine---that would have been just as bad as if I had completely fallen for it and had my bank account wiped out. This is a very cruel scam. I am not a greedy person, and I would not need more than maybe 10% of the amount this email named...but if this had been for would have been a godsend and would have changed my life.
I am 61 years old, and I have seen scams like this before...but, normally they almost immediately ask for sensitive information like bank account info and social security number...but this one did not do that. All they asked for is full name, address, and cell phone number. I was skeptical right from the start, but at the same time, I SERIOUSLY WANTED it to be true. I am technically homeless, and staying and working for a friend for just room and like MANY other people...I seriously need the help.
Since, I was skeptical from the start, but still hoped it was true...I started out dropping hints to let them know that I was concerned that they might be an impostor. In the last email, I told them point blank that I had no bank account, and that even if I did have one, I would never give it out to strangers. I told them that scammers usually ask for that...not because they want to put money into other people's accounts, but because they want to take money OUT of other people's accounts. And, I made it clear that the Real Carlos Helu would undoubtedly understand the need for caution, and would most likely have no objection to sending the check through services like either Fedex, or registered mail. I said that I would contact the bank they said I should contact...IF they responded to the last email within the following 24 hours. I knew, that if this person was an impostor, I would hear nothing more...but if it was for real, then I might get another response.
When, I realized that I probably would not hear anymore from them...because I think I made it pretty clear that I was onto them...but also that I have no bank account, or any money at all...I really wanted to find a way to directly report this to the Real Carlos Slim Helu, myself. But, I found your website before I could find a real email address for him. Yet another MASSIVE CRUSHING disappointment. Below, I will copy and paste all the emails, but delete my own email address as you instructed.

My response to first email below I just got an email from either you, or someone claiming to be you. I figured it was probably one of those scams---and it still could be. But, I did check out the name of your organization, and that much does check out.

If this email is for real, and you write back to me...then, I will give you my address.

Hello Carlos, I must admit that I am still a bit skeptical, but I am willing to take the chance. I did not mean to imply that the real Carlos Slim Helu would be scamming anyone, and I know that if this is really you sending me this email...then it is legitimate. I was merely concerned about the possibility of an impostor using this name without the knowledge of the true Carlos Slim Helu. I don't watch TV anymore, and I don't keep up with the ultra wealthy, I have to admit that I had never heard of you before. But, I did check you out. And, I think this is a wonderful thing you are doing. I will indeed use this money wisely, if it does materialize...and I will do what I can to alleviate the poverty of others, and improve the quality of life for as many people as I can. I truly believe that giving and sharing is important and that everyone deserves a chance to fulfill their dreams in life.

This is what life is really all about, helping others. The requested information seems harmless and a matter of public I went ahead and gave that information...but am deleted it for this report. i would never have given them bank account information or social security number or anything like that, though.

DO FOLLOW THE RESERVE BANK OF INDIA INSTRUCTION TO ENABLE YOU RECEIVE YOUR $2.5 MILLION USD. Regards, Carlos Slim Helu An Mexican business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. My final response is below. (By this time...while I still admittedly hoped that this would turn out to be the same time--I was kind of playing head games with them). This is terribly cruel...I don't understand why anyone would want to be this cruel to people who have had a really hard life, and could really use a real break. Hello, Before I contact the Reserve Bank of India...which I prefer to do by email. I need to respond to this email, and let you know two or three things. First, I am still skeptical about this, but rest assured that I know fully well that the real Carlos Slim Helu would have no reason to scam anyone or anything of the sort. And, so far I have not been asked for any information of a sensitive nature. Normally, scammers will ask for bank account information right away, or at least very soon. So, the reason that I am skeptical, is that this could still be from an impostor. However, that being said, I have been a low income person my entire adult life, and I am currently a zero income person. So, I am in an excellent position to understand what poor people need in order for their lives to be uplifted, and that it is always different for each individual. Most social service agencies take a one size fits all approach...which actually works for very few people, and at best is only a temporary fix. If this grant turns out to be legitimate--which I am certain that most likely is--IF this email is coming from the REAL Carlos Slim Helu...Then, I can really do a whole lot of good with this money...not only for my own life...but for others as well. I personally would only need a tiny percentage of the amount you have there would be plenty left over for helping uplift the lives of other people. I currently have no bank even if you asked me for bank account information, and even if I was willing to give that information...I would not be able to give something that I do not have. I can fully understand the need for codes, and for you to make sure that I am the correct person...but, if this is truly legitimate, and this email is really from the real Carlos Slim Helu, and not an impostor...once I have verified that I really am who I say I am...cashier's checks can safely be sent through such services as Fedex or certified or registered mail. Then, if the money actually materializes...I can open a bank account after I receive it. So, there would actually be no reason for anyone to know my bank account information...if I had a bank account. I would not give such information, even if I had it...because that is what scammers always ask for...and the reason they ask for it, is because they don't really want to put money into other people's accounts...they want to take money out of other people's accounts. So, in a very big is a good thing that I don't have an account...because this way, I can be more sure. It is very likely, that if you are an impostor...I will probably not hear any more from you, after you get this email...but, if you are the real Carlos Slim Helu, and this grant is legitimate, then I still might hear back from you. It is also very likely that the Real Carlos would fully understand my concerns about giving bank account information to strangers--even if I had any to give...and the real Carlos would most likely agree to send the check through one of the above mentioned services...whereas an impostor would either insist that it cannot be done as I request, or I would simply not hear anything more from them. So, I will contact the bank by email as about 24 hours or less...if I have already gotten a convincing response from this email, by then. I apologize for my skepticism...but the real Carlos would surely understand the need to be cautious and careful about such things.
