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. Beneficiaries have been chosen from countries from all the 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. 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. Recipients are only eligible to be awarded this donation once. Based on the random selection exercise of internet websites and millions of supermarket cash invoices worldwide, you were selected among the lucky recipients to receive the award sum of 1,500,000 Euros (One Million Five Hundred Thousand Euros) as charity donations/aid from the Vittorio Foundation, in accordance with the enabling act of Parliament. (Note that all beneficiaries email addresses were selected randomly from over 600,000 internet websites or a shop's cash invoice around your area in which you might have purchased something from). A qualification form will be sent to you to fill and returned as soon as you acknowledge this notification email with your interest in receiving the Cash Grant. You are to contact the 31st Anniversary Secretary with the information below: ********************************** Name:Dr.Stanley Morgan, Tel: +34-691-914-332 Email: email@example.com 31st Anniversary Secretary Vittorio Foundation ********************************** All information is strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose to which it is been requested. Please note that these donations/Grants are strictly administered by Vittorio Foundation. This means that your qualification number will be raffled to know the organisation (ECOWAS or EU) that will handle your payment. 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. Finally, all funds should be claimed by their respective beneficiaries, no later than 15 days after notification. Failure to do so will mean cancellation of that beneficiary and its donation will then be reserved for next year's recipients. On behalf of the Board kindly, accept our warmest Congratulations. Faithfully Yours, Lady (Mrs.) Reina Gianfagna .
