Queen Elizabeth Foundation email scam reply

A scam email making the rounds has slammed into my inbox with a resounding thud. Polite Canadian that I am, I always respond to emails – especially ones from Her Royal Highness – but I’m in a hurry today, so I’ll just fill in my responses in bold.

QUEEN ELIZABETH FOUNDATION
QEII FOUNDATION,
UNITED KINGDOM,
LONDON.

Concern.

Yes, you bet I’m concerned.

The QEII Foundation, would like to formal notify you that you have been chosen by the board of trustees as one of the final recipients of a cash Grant/Donation for your own personal, educational, and business development. What if I just feel like going out and getting smashed a little more often?

The QEII Foundation established 1977 by the Multi-Million groups and with the objective of human growth, educational, and community development. Grammar lessons will one day be offered too, I hope?

To celebrate the 28th anniversary program which, if you’re paying attention, was nearly three years ago, The QEII Foundation is giving out a yearly donation of £488,210.00 (Four Hundred And Eighty Eight Thousand, Two Hundred and Ten Pound Sterling) to 100 lucky recipients. These specific Donations/Grants will be awarded to 100 lucky international recipients worldwide; in different categories for their personal business development and enhancement of their educational plans.

At least 15% of the awarded funds should be used by you to develop a part of your environment. Development proposals include turning forest into housing, landfill, amusement parks or server farms to ensure shit like this has a safe place to be stored and distributed.

god-shave-the-queen.jpg

This is a yearly program, which is a measure of universal development strategy, whatever the hell that means. The objective is to make a notable change in the standard of living of people all around the Universe (From America to Europe, Asia to Africa and all around). The Klingons will be miffed you forgot to mention them.

The QEII Foundation has been assured of highest organization standard courtesy of the British Government. It is our belief that we can achieve a great positive change in the general welfare of the universe through this program. OK, now I’m suspicious. The Brits spell it programme.
That is why the foundation is doing everything possible to get all recipients notified of their donation.

Note that your country is not the only country that is benefiting from this donation. Finally being nice to the Germans, are we? Oh right, your family’s German. Sorry.

Beneficiaries have been chosen from countries from all continents. The idea of this donation is that within ten years from now, there will be notable richness among many unusual people around the world. Gee, thanks! I guess…

This will give many people the opportunity to get their lives to a stage where they had always wanted. Kindly note that you will only be chosen to receive the donation once, which means that subsequent yearly donation will not get to you again.

Take time and thought in spending the donation wisely on something that will last you a long time. Guess that rules out iPods? Recipients are only eligible to be awarded this donation once.

You were selected among the lucky recipients to receive the award sum of £488,210.00 (Four Hundred And Eighty
Eight Thousand, Two Hundred And Ten Pound Sterling) as charity donations/aid from the QEII Foundation. Is there an echo around here?

Note that all beneficiaries email addresses were selected randomly from over 100,000 internet websites or a shop’s cash invoice around your area in which you might have purchased something from). Punctuation trouble is temporary. Please do not adjust your viewer.

You are required to fill the form below and email it to our Executive Secretary below for qualification documentation and processing of your claims. After contacting our office with the requested data, you will be given your donation
pin number, which you will use in collecting the funds. I’ve always wanted to tell you how much I love the way you grasp your sceptre at the opening of Parliament, my Sovereign.

All information is strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose to which it is been requested. Vacuuming my bank account, perhaps?

Please note that these donations/Grants are strictly administered under delegated powers from the British Government. This means that your qualification number will be reffled to know the organization that will handle your payment. That’s a relief. Adequate reffling is the first thing I check for when verifying an offer’s legitimacy.

You are to keep this whole information confidential until you have been able to collect your donation, as there have been many cases of double and unqualified claim, due to beneficiaries informing third parties about his/her donation. Lips are sealed, Queenie babe.

On behalf of the Board kindly, accept our warmest congratulations.

Regards.
Queen Elizabeth II, By the grace of Google, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith in Spam.
(Foundation officer).

    Unfortunately I received it too… I am a person developing a disability and paying off a significant college bill. How wonderful it would have been if it were true. They offered me 500,000 US dollars.

  13. April 3, 2008 at 5:27 am

    Leah,
    I really hope you didn’t get in contact with them at all. I might be making fun out of this, but these people are at root nothing but criminals, and deserve to be treated as such.

    I wish you the best of luck and courage in the face of your disability and overcoming the financial burden of student debt. It’s a long-term investment though, and nobody can take it away or sell it on.

    Got that piece of crap too! They (Africa and Nigeria) should get their internet access cut off!

    Can’t WE …the rest of planet earth get together to shut these as*hol*s down forever????

    We should get a coalition going to pulverize the crap out of them! I win about 2 to 5 million british sterling pounds a week!! They just keep sending and sending and sending their crap into my mail!

    I got caught at first and now they have allot of my personal information which really gets me burning for revenge! I’d like to personally go over there and collect the millions they’ve all promised me! I have another plan but disclosing it could incriminate me sooo……!

    Anyway, I think we should get a bunch of good hackers together and screw the crap out of the Nigerian and African ISP servers and all their online systems to wreck them forever. I would also suggest that our countries put up a filter to their IP addresses. We should have a button to press to activate recieving any kind of transmission from those countries.

    Yahoo and hotmail as well as msn should also setup special filters to end this crap!

    I can not tell you of how many scams I have received, by what i suspect is the same group, the latest is the fact that as an unknown single mother who is struggling to raise 4 year old twins, I have won a huge amount of money in the form of US dollars, amusing as I live in Britain that the Queen would support the dollar rather than the currency bearing her own face. And i must have inspired somebody to be awarded such a gift…however thay don’t even know my name and age, or address and telephone number. Just like the student who posted his comment I feel for second an answer to my prayers but then reality hits, it is a shame these scammers have no conscience.

    I have received and ignored such crap before. Three years ago, I saved a friend who was about to lose $2,500. The hackers wanted him to send it to them by Western Union, in consideration of getting 40% of the $16 million some guy had left in African Development Bank, following “a plane crash”. The $2,500 was supposed to be “handling fees”. Dear reader, there is nothing for nothing; charity cannot be on the e-mail. If you have e-mail, you are likely able to put food on your table, while those who need the charity have no e-mail address!! If you have a donation, send it to known charities not these thieves. These spammers just want to know your bank account, and may use it for unlawful purposes, including stealing whatever is on it. I ADMIT – FIND THE DELETE KEY ON YOUR COMPUTER NOW, AND PRESS IT.

    Today I received this same piece of crap from these scamsters. The moot point after reading all the above comments is that, is there no way to bring these crooks to book. So many gullible people have and will fall prey to these criminals. Can cyber police any where in the world not do something about this, so that it proves a deterrent to current and future fraudsters.

    I had to read all these comments to realize that I am not alone… feeling stupid when I read this incredible offer. True or not I was not so sure any more. But lately this is not the same mail I receive with such a big amount of money, I also won to the UK Lottery, see the mail below :

    You have won UK National Lottery 2008 Promo of 4,000.000.00 (Four MillionPounds Sterling). For claims contact Mrs. Lizzy James.E-mail: mrslizzyjames@jmail.co.za

    Which I never answer …

    ANd also this one :
    You have won UK National Lottery 2008 Promo of 4,000.000.00 (Four MillionPounds Sterling). For claims contact Mrs. Lizzy James.E-mail: mrslizzyjames@jmail.co.za

    Allow yourself to dream a minute when you get these mails,but better, go back to work and make yourself rich and happy with the gift you get from God.

    All this is pity as I live in a 3rd world country and I have some ideas to help these people (indonesia)

    lmao! I hope they all get what’s coming to them in the end!!

    to all scammers: GO GET A DAMN JOB LIKE THE REST OF US!!!!

    Got 4 emails this morning all saying the same thing. I was going to delete all of them and decided to read one of them to see what it was. I read the message and thought to myself why would a foundation be giving away money, especially if they have no prior information about me. So i deleted the email immediately. After that I was thinking what if it was true and decided to look up the foundation myself and this is when i found this page. People are ignorant and need to get a life if they have time to send this many emails.

My family in law in Spain help people too in Africa,Kenia, Zaire,etc. I thank: may be it´s true. It’s disgusting. It is a FRAUD and these people CRIMINALS. I’ll report to the Queen’s Elizabeth Foundation and Mexican Legal Autorities, like INTERPOL in Cybernetics Crimes. I like invite all the victims in the world to do the same in your Countries and in the REAL Queen’s Elizabeth Foundation.

  53. July 22, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    If you’re serious about trying to track these guys down, good luck. It is so easy to set up an email address and an alias. They could be anywhere. If you have their IP address and do a WhoIs search you might get a little closer, maybe even be able to lean on the provider to get them to stop sending this stuff, but they’ll just go somewhere else.

    Just received another beutiful offer in the making-to share amongst the 60 of us 600,000 pounds, great isn’t it.

    how do I stop this, any way of reporting them to the British Government-I mean using the queen’s name in this is being unrespectiful what do you think guys. they try to change few things even on the address like qef.org instead of the genuine qefd.org etc.

    another of the same nature got me two days ago-bearing the name of Dr. Larry H. Thomson-I later learnt through the same internet that this guy is a professor in Biology at one of the British Universities, oops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. August 21, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    Well, I’ve been called disrespectful myself just by sticking up this post. Do you really think someone operating out of a basement in another country can be stopped by a British law?

  58. 58 TRUTH LIES IN TORONTO CANADA!!!
    August 25, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    It is very interesting that this scam seems to be based in England when the REAL foundation is actually located in the heart of Toronto Canada. Someone has taken the name of the real charitable organization that raises donations the Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital Foundation, and twisted it for their own scam, it’s disgusting. I believe that these unscrupulous individuals are truly located in Canada, not England. Right now, the real Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital Foundation is in full drive trying to raise money through a lottery. They are currently running commercials on tv and this is why some dolt decided to use their name in a scam.

    Also the name of the bank…Scotia Bank Place, is the name of a commercial tower complex in downtown Toronto, owned by Scotia Bank (which is a Canadian Bank that used to be called Bank of Nova Scotia, not a British bank).

    Another clue is the contact email…a proper email from a bank would have the bank as the domain name, not hotmail live or google or yahoo!

    The most obvious give-away on whether the email is legit or not is spelling errors. If you direct your attention to the address of the foundation you will see that they mispelled “Leatherhead” the second time round.

    Normally i do not even respond to these bulletins, but since this particular email uses landmarks and names which I am personally familiar with, I thought it prudent to make it absolutely clear to anyone who may think this is legit!

    Admirable detective work. A Canadian connection! The Queen will not be amused.

    To Ian in Hamburg…

    You said to Inov that stupid would only be if you sent them money(s). I need to correct you on that. Sending them money is actually less harmful then sending them your personal information. With your personal information they can acquire credit (ie, Visa/Mastercard, bank accounts, lines of credit, mortgages, driver’s licence, health cards, insurance). They can take loans out in your name, and then renege on the payments, which you will be held liable for. Some companies will offer a reprieve to victims of identity theft, but there are many more that will not. In the UK and North America many people have been victims of this, some have had 2nd mortgages taken out on their homes without them knowing, only to have the bank foreclose on them, eventhough they were victims.

    The rates of Identity theft for the purpose of immigration is much lower compared to the rates of credit theft that it is usually used for.

    So, just sending money to these people is NOT nearly as stupid as sending personal information. You wire money, you’re out a few bucks. You send personal info, you could be indebted for the rest of your life!

    PS- TERESA DAVIS, never post your full name, even on these helpful bulletins. The people that send those evil email scams read these posts, do not kid yourself. It is very easy to get personal info on someone once you have their full name. Believe me, I know, I’m a Private Investigator.

  61. August 25, 2008 at 8:02 pm

    Thank you! I stand corrected. Send them as much money as you want, just don’t send them your account details.
    ;-)

    OH, and BTW – don’t post your full name? There are tens of millions of full names on Facebook!

    August 25, 2008 at 8:17 pm

    I just made my posts, and you IAN IN HAMBURG responded instantly. Why? Are you monitoring this bulletin? You have many many responses to people, some is in the form of bad advice. Why are you so interested in everything everyone has to say?

    I made a comment that the scammers monitor these bulletins.
    I put this to you, are you responsible for this email?

    If not then I APOLOGIZE…perhaps you just feel compelled to respond to everyone’s postings on this particular scam because of some other personal reason. If you are going to give advice, give good advice, educate yourself before telling others what is safe and what is not.

    Hopefully no one acted on your suggestion that sending money is stupid when compared to replying to the email, that gives people the false sense that responding is okay when in reality simply responding to it can give them a plethora of information (your name, email account, and ISP address which can lead to the Remote Access of your computer, which in turn can lead to whatever banking info or personal info on your computer).

    I do give you credit for the best advice, that is….not to open the email at all, delete it. If you do open it, close it, delete it. Just opening it might have downloaded harmful or invasion script onto your hard drive.

    Goodluck everyone, I just had to post this because I recieved the same email and then I read these postings and was shocked by some of the things people were saying. I thought it best to educate others with some of what I know so that they too can make informed decisions.

  63. 63 More from a private investigator
    August 25, 2008 at 8:47 pm

    Okay you goaded me into responding again!

    Ian in Hamburg, who said facebook was a good idea? I don’t think I did. Yes, that is the problem with Facebook, people are posting too much personal info.
    Read a newspaper, better yet, read the fine print of your Facebook Agreement!!! Clearly you have not done that, like the millions of other Facebook members!!!!
    WAKE UP, or SHUT UP.

    You don’t think some become victims of identity theft because of that? Are you that naive?
    Are you suggesting that because people offer their personal info on Facebook we should send our personal info to these scammers?
    Do you lack common sense? Are you an adult, or just some bored teen?
    Hell even most teens are aware of how easy it is for ID theft. You must be around the 50+ age, and grew up without the internet, back when ID theft was hardly ever heard of, why else would you be so naive?
    Do you watch or read the news?
    You do know it is 2008, right?

    I starting to think you are the one responsible for this email scam since you are responding to everyone’s post immediately, AND you’ve been monitoring the posts going back now a long long time.

    You are giving very bad advice, the type of advice that leads people to become victims of such scams.

    You know nothing about Private Security, Internet Security, and Business Security if you believe the bad advice you are giving.

    But, I think you do know about it. I think YOU ARE THE ONE RESPONSIBLE, why else would you comment on my posting within minutes after my posting, with such sarcasm to boot.

    Trust this, Ian in Hamburg, you do not want to match wits with me.
    There ARE laws that can stop you from writing your scam emails from your basement (except in certain countries like Nigeria, and the Republic of Russia, and People’s Republic of China).
    There are laws against private citizens collecting personal information of others for your own personal/financial gain.

    …and there are other ways to track scammers, and stop them. If you don’t know about some of those other ways, then you really are naive. WAKE UP, SHUT UP, GIVE UP. Idiot.

    I’m on you.

  64. August 25, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    And you, sir, are an absolute joke with way too much time on his hands.

    Have you ever heard of a blog? This is my blog. That’s why I have been responding, because I like to respond to people who leave comments. I’m even responding to you in spite of your rudeness and despite the fact you won’t leave a real email address or URL.

    Read the post again. It makes fun of the scam email. Do you have a problem with my humour? Tough luck. There are a lot of humour blogs out there to keep you in stitches.

    Oh, speaking of full names, have you ever heard of a phone book? They have names AND addresses. Whoa.

  67. August 26, 2008 at 12:35 am

    It’s OK, jen. I realise this sort of thing can get people riled up, especially when they don’t see the whole reason I wrote it in the first place: to make fun of it all and have a laugh. I’m as serious as anyone about getting the word out on these scammers and exposing them, but the best protection anyone can have is to just ignore them. No laws or police work will be as effective as that.

    These people must think we’re all brain dead. I mean come on! Anyone who’s daft enough to think these un-amazing awards are for real need their heads seeing to. I must have been offered at least £100m this month in entirely unsolicited mail of course in exchange for my personal details, home address, etc etc….. I agree totally with all of the above and that some kind of shit-filter should be established by the administrators of all email programmes. If anything, reading all of these comments has brightened up my day! You’re doing a great job Ian in Hamburg, keep up the good work. Like you say, find the key in the top right and keep pressing it! ;) ;) ;)

    I also received this email,and because the address wasn’t a hot mail or yahoo i thought maybe this one is real. My kids call me naive, even though im 46 yrs. old. I must get at least 20 a week,usually they are from africa,and i have had them all. the business proposition,next of kin,the lottery,and the dying millionaire without children and doesn’t want grasping relatives to have it.plus the one that wants help moving their money to my country and i would get a percentage. i dont know why i get so many,if these people new that i was on a disability pension,and didnt have 2 cents to rub together,would they still bother me?

  81. November 24, 2008 at 8:27 am

    Hi tina,
    Probably not, but quite frankly they don’t care who you are. You’re just one of millions of addresses they have to send forth. If just one sucker a week bites at the bait, they’ve succeeded.

    I’ts reached Australia as well—I received it this week. The Truly sad part is that there is a Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation in the UK, they work for people with disabilities & am offended on their behalf by this ruthless scam. I agree that there needs to be more done to prevent this kind of parasite from preying on the weak (am p#$$ed off at myself for believing it, even if it was for a millisecond! What I could do with that money!!).
    Until then, all I wish is nothing but the hardest laws of Karma to be visited upon them (you know camels spitting on them & all that).

    I was very suspicious by the email address. If the Queen Elizabeth Foundation was going to contact me I\’m pretty sure they must have an email with the foundations name in it.
    Some people are so dishonest…..Shame on you for trying to take money from a foundation which is there to support those who really need it… There are some very greedy decitiful people out there.

    Hi All..

    I live in Miami and its December 21, 2009 just a few days before Christmas..

    You cannot imagine my excitement receiving a letter from her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth 11 saying she is giving me 850,000 pounds. Needless to say, it lasted about 1.5 seconds ofcourse and then I realized its actually from the desperate residents of one of those African countries.

    Preceeding this email from Her Majesty was one from Barrister Mkhwane from Johannesburg advising me I was the beneficary of $57 million US dollars.

    Everyone beware.. These people will try to find any fool that would fall victim to their scams.

    Merry Christmas from sunny Miami…

    • December 21, 2009 at 5:27 pm

      Hi Margot,
      The amazing thing about it is that they actually do manage to find people dumb enough to fall for it. They play the numbers – if just one in a million gets sucked in, they’ve made a lot of dough.

  95. January 9, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    Its disgusting to note the above picture. Such people who have no regards for the royal people should be punished and thrown in the prison. How dare they can think of harming the image of the Queen, who is so elegant, charming and dignified personality. Shame on the person with this stupid idea.

      Esteemed Dr. Andrews,

      Our beloved Queen is no doubt elegant, charming and dignified. She’s also a public figure, and as such, open to satire. Just because she’s been drawn in caricature doesn’t mean it’s character assassination.

      Hereby conveying to your person my kindest regards,

I have won a Prize of 600000 pounds from Kia car, and fulfilled all the necessary procedures, without issuing me the rules and regulations ofthe prize. I have also paid a whooping amount of 4000 Pounds to Mr.Matthew Forrest, on 20 Dec 2009. Till today I have not received the prize nor any information from Kia cars and their members. I feel cheated, humilated and surpirsed to note, that such a big company of Kia cars can manage to cheat the people round the globe, with the temptation of giving a huge prize, then extract the money from the people who save for their old age.

    I have contated the London Police, the fraud desk, the embassy the BBC , the news paper etc. I therefore humbly pray and request your kindself to kindly look into the matter, to get my prize money.

    It is the educated who are punished, and the kia cars should also note that they should not send the messages on the mobiles the gift which they cannotafford.

    I hope I shall be helped and understand my pain and suffering for the loss I have undergone.

      Ms. Andrews,

      It is deeply distressing to read of your plight with agents who are most likely impersonating the Kia car company. May I suggest you direct your efforts at recovering your funds at those who might best help you, such as your regional police department. From your temperate subcontinental climes you have reached a humble blogger marooned on the freezing northern coast of Europe. I wish you luck.

    I am going to prepare my very own project since there aren’t any nice jobs ?n existence.

    Can any individual provide any suggestions or sites as to how to get government grant money to start with my personal business? I’ve been looking on the web but just about every web site asks for money and I’ve been told by the unemployment office to avoid the sites that ask for money for grant information because they are scam. I’d be truly grateful for any advice.

    Indeed. What a fantastic and thought-provoking web page! After reading the excellent article you have posted here I found it very interesting. Being a generous and kindhearted to our fellow-women and man is a gods gift. Therefore, I conclude that this type of foundation is highly appreciated. Most likely, to all people inside and outside the world. I just really hope that a certain amount of the Queen Elizabeth Foundation will be given to a deserving nor worthy people for their future. God Bless!

    I must be a lesser sucker than you guys, my grant was not £488,210.00 , but for a mere £1,500.00. On the other hand I mustn’t be greedy as I won £500.000.00 from Google the other day.
    What amazes and amuses me the most if their belief they could still find people that don’t know about these letters.

      Hello Asha,

      I am quite sorry to read of your situation, however I am merely a blogger from Germany. I do not have any connections with the Queen of England beyond holding the opinion that Her Majesty looks great with a beard. Oh, and she’s the Queen of Canada. That counts for something.

      Please note that this post is intended for humourous purposes only. I seem to have trouble convincing a few recent commenters of that.

      I also suggest that in future, you NOT SUPPLY YOUR PIN NUMBER IN A BLOG COMMENT NAME! I have done you a favour by deleting it.

    Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my
    blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design.
    Cheers

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

      Fuck off, that’s all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on spam to sell your product. You are clearly an asshole. Why insult our intelligence on just spamming blogs, when you could be giving us something useful?

    Dear Facebook Winner ,

    To your greatest surprise you are reading this email directly from the Queen of England (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary).I stumbled over your International Lottery approval slip few hours ago while flipping over the files from the HM Revenue department in the Royal office here.
    I detected that you have benefited (800,000 GBP) eight hundred thousand from Facebook Lottery Inc. ,and your total transaction has been approved via Bank of England for payment via CASHPLUS Bank to your Destination Bank Account in your desired Country.
    Firstly, I noted that you have not ACTIVATED your account properly due to your doubts and blurry situation, and this is a compulsory financial regulatory act to United Kingdom constitutional policy, and if any bank approved OFFSHORE account without PROCESSING ,the penalty for the action is confiscation of your 800,301.99 GBP, but due to your mode of lottery benefit ,international transfer policy and the relationship of your Country with United Kingdom Government , i will place a consideration on your account processes thus.
    .The final approval of your international funds transfer awaits my authorization, but before i consider and endorse your file for CREDIT into your account, you must pay the sum of due charges to the bank immediately ,therefore i advise you to contact the bank and send the due charges GBP to the bank Account officer as requested .
    Note that the governing council is supposed to deliberate over this issue but due to my special interest in assisting you, i decided to contact from from my official email address.This is very rare and unusual for you to receive an email from the Queen of England, but you are lucky to have received this mail from me.Now go ahead and arrange the bank charges GBP payment to the CASHPLUS office immediately.As soon as you remit the payment, I will authorize your 800,301.99 into your Bank Account .Once again, This is a rare opportunity bestowed on you and i advise you to keep this email confidential.
    Do no give-out my email address for security reasons, and i advise you to act very fast.I Elizabeth Mary Alexandra Mary promise you 100% that as soon as you complete the required bank charges GBP processing fee, i will authorize credit into your destination Bank Account immediately .
    This letter is sentenced directly by the Queen of England via the royal mail operative unit , instructed and ordered for the readers digest , and note that the Queen private email is highly confidential . The Queen obliged to take outright responsibility of your payment processing into your destination Bank account henceforth .
    Best of luck .

    ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————— TO REPLY THIS EMAIL TO THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND ,KINDLY FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS…..
