RE: CASH ENDOWMENT NOTIFICATION
I have been directed to inform you by the board of trustees of the Ride Foundation as one of the final recipients of a cash Grant/Donation for your own personal, educational, and business development. The Ride Foundation was established 10th August, 1980 by the Multi-Million groups and companies in Europe having their corporate head office in Austria (Vienna) and was conceived with the objective of humanitrian growth, educational, and community development.
To celebrate the 27th anniversary program, The Ride Foundation is giving out a donation of £500,000.00 (Five hundred thousand British Pounds) each to 30 lucky recipients. These specific Donations/Grants will be awarded to 30 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 (the Recipient) to develop a part of your community. This is a yearly program, which is a measure of Universal Development Strategy Program (UDSP).
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 Ride Foundation has been assured of highest organizational standard courtesy of the United Nations. It is our belief that we can achieve a great positive change in the general welfare of the universe through this program. 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 all over the continents. The idea of this donation is that within ten years from now or thereabout, 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 £500,000.00 (Five hundred thousand British Pounds) as charity donations/aid from the Ride 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 27th Anniversary Secretary with the information below:
Name: Mike Spysers,
27th Anniversary Secretary
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 Ride 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 recipient not 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.
Rosebeth Tailor (PRO).
