Claiming to be François Pinault
Email Address:
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...
