Donation scams

Donation scams attract people less familiar with the risks of the Internet : Scammers make believe to their victims that they are the recipients of a gift of money… In the majority of cases, this scam is broadcast by mail but some variations can be found on the classified ads websites.

How does this scam work ?

The scammer attracts his victim by making him believe that he is a beneficiary of a donation : heritage, hidden fortune stuck on a bank account… When exposed on ads classified, they are spread through donations of animals or atypical vehicles (cars without a license, motor homes ...)... The scammer does not hesitate to use photos evoking pity !

The problem is that in all cases, this donation requires a counterpart : Money is required on the pretext of customs fees, legal fees or transportation.
