Al-Waleed Bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud (scam warning)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is a standard type of charity scam message with a name we’ve seen before: good old Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. Unfortunately it’s just another version of the familiar advance fee fraud: there’s really no donation and you haven’t been selected for anything except to be the scammer’s next target.
