I was bored so I replied and the email i got back was asking for my full name address and cell phone # which is different from all the other email scams I have received before when I sent it to the F.B.I they informed me what they do is send you a text To Finalize your "GRANT" with a link to install spy ware on your phone and they have your online banking info and clean out your bank account prety slick i hope they bust them,

Thank you for confirming the validity of your email address and also accepting this grant. We know this message maybe a surprise to you but do kindly accept our gift and donation as a kind gesture from our ongoing good will project 2020. Our Foundation is truly committed to “giving while living,” We just recently organized and launched our internet donation program as this will enable us reach out to more people outside the shores of USA so they too can benefit from my foundation. Many other major philanthropists look primarily to support large institutions and not individuals which is absolutely wrong thus we are changing such with this program.

The launch of this internet/mobile donation program came up so as to avoid unsolicited pleas for donations and to avoid the idea of people feeling indebted to him/us. To facilitate the disbursement process of the funds valued at One Million Two Hundred Thousand United State Dollars [$1,200,000 USD] which have been donated solely to you, please provide the below information. I am hoping that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously. I ask you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty in your region and also try to enhance the standard of living of as many people as you can and see the joy and happiness of giving.

Do make sure you reconfirm me with your complete information below so I forward it to my selected payout bank for disbursement.
