Shell Foundation Programme Scam

Good grief as if a giant oil company was handing out cash? Give me a break, no imagination these scammers. This is about as likely to happen as a snowball in Hell! What is it this time? Maybe some taxes to be paid in advance or lawyers fees; perhaps they would like to have my banking info to make the transfer?

Shame on you bottom feeder.

    Stop all communication with the bottom feeders and if you gave any personal banking info, contact your financial institution and let them know.
    You should contact your local authorities and report the matter. You may also want to visit this site Scam Victims United it is a great resource.
