Howard Buffett does not use AOL

Oh, boy.  I wonder if anyone uses AOL email anymore for anything other than coupons, newsletters, and scams?  I use mine for newsletters I think may be a little spammy, but that’s just me.  Apparently, CEO Howard Buffett does.  And he has something for me – or anyone who’ll write him back.

From:  Howard Buffett (info@padmaonline.com)

Subject:  Good day — get back to me ASAP

Good day,

I am the CEO and Chairman of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. A Charitable Foundation. I have decided to secretly give {$1,500,000.00} One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars, to randomly selected individuals worldwide. Kindly get back to me at your earliest convenience, so I know your email address is valid. Send your Name, Address and Phone Number to howard_buffett@aol.com

Regards,
Howard G. Buffett.

—————–

There is a real Howard G Buffett and he is the chairman of a charitable foundation.  The author of this email is not that person.  The author is just another scammer hoping that the touch of reality in the message will convince victims to ignore the warning signs and go for the cash.

This offer isn’t real.  I wish it and several others were.  I could use an extra $1,500,000.

Be safe
