Christian Aid is subject of grant spam email

first_imgFor example: “Christian Aid (U.K.) a Multi-Million Pounds NGO group was Established with the objective Of Human Growth, Educational and Communitydevelopment.”Apparently the grant comes from “the Christian Aid (U.K.) in conjunction with the European Council” and there is a total of “Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling as specific Donations/Grants to 10 lucky International recipients world wide in different Categories for Business development and Social.”Recipients can apparently use these funds freely “for your business And educational development, charitable work and your Community development at large”, which would suggest that Christian Aid’s charitable objectives have been stretched somewhat.Even better is the rationale for being awarded such a ‘grant’: “Your Email was selected Based on an internet random Selection exercise”, a new approach to professional grant-making.As with all such email scams, the sender advises secrecy on the part of the recipient: “You are by all means advised,To keep this whole information confidentialuntil you Have collected your grant, this is to avoid double And unqualified claim, due to beneficiaries informing Third parties on cash grant donation.”UK Fundraising decided not to comply with this secrecy rubbish, so looks like we won’t get our £850,000. At the same time we’ll avoid the attentions of a scam artist trying to convince us to part with tens of thousands of pounds before we get our money.
