Dear Winner,
The Melbourne foundation under the auspices of Lord Mayor's Charitable Fund, would like to 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 personal, educational and business development. The Greater Melbourne 
Foundation, established in 1977 by the Multi-million Dollar group, the Lord Mayor's Charitable fund 
and now supported by the African Union (AU), United Nations Organization (UNO) and the European 
Union ( EU) was conceived with the objective of human growth, educational and community development.
To celebrate the 28th anniversary program, The Greater Melbourne Foundation in conjunction with the 
African Union (AU), United Nations Organization (UNO) and the European Union (EU) is giving out a 
yearly donation of US$100,000,000.00 (One Hundred Million United States Dollars) to 100 lucky 
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. This is a yearly program, which is a measure of universal 
development strategy.
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 Greater Melbourne 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 different countries all around the world. The idea of this donation is that 
within ten (10) 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 
US$1,000,000.00(One Million United States Dollars) as charity donations/aid from the Greater

qualification number will be raffled to know the organization (AU or EU) that will handle your

donation, as there have been many cases of double and unqualified claims, due to beneficiaries 
informing third parties about his/her donation.

notification. Failure to do so will mean cancellation of that beneficiary and its donation will be 
reserved for the next year's recipients.
