Socially Conscious Scammers!

Jun 10, 2011 Published under Entrepreneurship and Management

You know that a field must be hot when even fraudulent scammers start adopting its tone and position themselves as such. You used to get scams offering you millions of dollars from a despot in Nigeria or a corrupt official looking for a partner in crime.

Now check out the email I got: they want to donate their life-savings for my charitable/humanitarian good work!

You were recently recommended to me by a Journalist (Chris Hondros) who gave me your email address. Before the Journalist was killed, he told me about you and your humanitarian wiliness when I was sharing my thoughts with him about donating my entire wealth to a kind hearted person for humanitarian work.

My name is Mrs Eman Abdul-aziz, I am a widow living in Libya. I seem to have become very heart-broken after my entire family was killed by armed forces loyal to Gadhafi.

I have intentions to donate my entire savings to you for charity use. Please acknowledge my email for more details about me and my donation. my email is :

I realized social entrepreneurship was hot when corporate marketing departments tried to position their campaigns as "corporate social responsibility." But nothing can attest to the trend of people wanting to make a difference like the compliment that these scammers pay us!
