Today, I received an email from someone who claimed to be Frances & Patrick Connolly Family from County Down in Northern Ireland informing me that they have decided to gift me £3,600,000.00 million Pound sterling (GBP). I am elated.

I have replied to “them” to let me know how I can get the money. My  communication as it unfolds is given below. My comments are in red.

An amount of £3,600,000.00 million Pound sterling (GBP) (That is 3.6 million million – a few trillion actually – Pound Sterling. The money they are talking about is more than the GDP of many countries. You think I can sue them if they do not give me that money??) has been donated and given, gifted to you and your family by Frances & Patrick Connolly Family from County Down in Northern Ireland, who won the Euro Millions jackpot, lottery of £115m Euro Millions, part of this donation. please contact her to claim the money via email for more details: (Why is the reply to email different from the one that you used to write to me? I am only thinking aloud. But will not ask them this. Why? because I know that it is a scam email)

Scam email based on true facts

As I have maintained in many earlier posts, the scammer always bases the scam on some true fact. I googled to check if there is indeed a Frances & Patrick Connolly Family that won a multi-million Pound lottery and found that it is really so

The scammer did not share any link to have the recepient verify the claim, but is clever enough to use a verifiable true fact to build the scam.
