Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.
The message below (shown in yellow) is a typical example of a charity scam. Lots of new charity scam messages have gone into circulation since the COVID pandemic, but they all follow the same old pattern: the scammer has millions of dollars and wants you to help give it away to charity. If you respond, the scammer will try to get personal information from you (bank account numbers, for example), and then instead of sending you money to distribute, the scammer will empty your account of everything you have.
