I appreciate you for writing back as I have expected. I got your email from a web journal and felt strongly to write to you. 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. I am François Pinault, I am a French Citizen and a businessman, 80 years old, and worth $15.9 billion US Dollars. Click on the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fran%C3%A7ois_Pinault 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, 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 too, 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 son, François-Henri Pinault, I am very certain he will not help anyone with it. François-Henri Pinault took me to court the last time I gave out money out of generosity. I have made life worth living for myself and my family, it is my hope that you are able to receive this money, all I want from you is to be honest with me and help others from it too.
10% of my worth I've been putting away in a private deposit for a long time now and have reached an amount of $73,500,000.00. I am trying to cede this money in portions through the bank I deposited it to as many as can benefit from it because 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 $7,350,000 (Seven Million, Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand United State Dollars).
Kindly introduce yourself in details to me:
Full Name: Contact Address: Country: Age: Sex: Occupation: 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 your response, I wish you a wonderful day.
Yours Faithfully, Francois Pinault.

The first email I received said they had a donation for me and to contact them for details. After responding, a second email was sent that outlined their whole story, how he's to sick to help himself but he set a large amount of money aside to help the less fortunate. The email claimed to be from François Pinault and included a Wikipedia linked to verify his identity and more importantly his wealth. The email starting by requesting basic information (name, age, etc.) in order to receive a considerable donation as long as you were sincere and honest with your intentions you could receive this money to do as you pleased. I did not proceed with the scam so I do not know where it goes from here but I'm sure they want you account information to send you the money. If it sounds to good to be true it often is. I just wanted to let people know about this scam with the hopes that someone will be spared the hassle that comes with a scam of this nature... Do not let these wolves in sheeps clothing deceive you... Best of luck...

I received an email saying a donation was made to me from Baptist Health southFlorida and to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Suspecting spam, I googled the email to find this site. However, the person and Baptist Health are real
