Jeanne Fortuyn and her "charity"
An email being sent to New Zealand lawyers is the starting point for a well-established scam. Purporting to come from "Jeanne Fortuyn", different versions of the resulting scam have her aged 80 and 62. She wants some help in setting up a charity so she can donate millions of dollars.
The email sent in New Zealand reads as follows:
From: Jeanne Fortuyn <email@example.com>
Subject: Re: Help
I am at the end of the road, I am trying to start up a charity non governmental organization, however I may not be able to complete it due to my health constraint. I will need your assistance to help me undertake it. Please get back to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. God bless you.
