Good Day,

I am Michael R. Bloomberg an American businessman, politician, author, and philanthropist. I am the founder, CEO, and owner of Bloomberg L.P, and the founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies. I have also served as the 108th Mayor of New York City in New York State of the United States of America.


Your email was obtained from a web log and I felt strongly about writing to you and I appreciate you for writing back as I have expected. The intention of reaching out to you is to be of great financial blessing to you, because at my age i cannot continue to amass so much wealth without giving back to the society which is the sole purpose why i founded the Bloomberg Philanthropies in 2004 and became a member of The Giving Pledge, a campaign to encourage wealthy people to contribute a majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes.

Bloomberg Philanthropies was established as a formal means of helping to improve the lives of mankind through charitable giving. Bloomberg Philanthropies focuses its resources on five areas: the environment, public health, the arts, government innovation and education. This time myself and the CEO of Bloomberg Philanthropies ( Patricia Harris ) have decided to give cash donations to individuals and private entities.

Therefore today I have decided to give you the sum of ($2,900,000.00 USD), all you have to do is follow the required procedure to claim it. I am doing this now as a form of charity to mankind and it is my hope that you are able to receive this money and probably help others from it too so that many can benefit from it. The COVID-19 pandemic marks an unprecedented time in modern history that requires the best of humanity to overcome a challenge I will not shy away from.

It was my CEO's idea to give out cash donations to individuals deeply rooted in local communities and since then we have been making private deposits which has resulted to a huge amount within a short period of time.

I am glad I am able to give this Two point Nine million U.S Dollars to you because i am certain some other people will benefit from it directly or indirectly.

Now, all that been said, if you know you are ready to receive the ($2,900,000.00 USD) Kindly introduce yourself to me in the format below:

Full Names:
Contact Address:
Phone Number:

After receiving your personal details as I have requested above, I shall then give you a letter which you will use to claim and receive the funds that has been donated to you from the processing bank. This is my personal money so it does not need too many formal procedures to claim the funds, some beneficiaries have received theirs while others are in the process.

My only term is that you be good to others.

Kind Regards,

Michael Rubens Bloomberg & Harris Patricia
Bloomberg philanthropies

Good Day ,

It is good you have responded on time, I'm glad you can handle this money that we have agreed to donate to you. I hope that this money will be a blessing to you and all whom you might choose to share with. As I wrote to you earlier in my previous email, $ 2,900,000.00 USD is yours to keep. It'd touched our heart (myself and the CEO of Bloomberg Philanthropies) to reach out to others far off, not just our country men so do accept this from us as our contribution to humanity and blessing to others.

We might not be able to get across to all the people on the streets in need, but I believe that with this money in the right hands, our dreams of restoring hope to millions of people far and wide will be achieved.

For the purpose of transparency and to enable you to access the donated funds without suspicion or complication I am sending you this email to contact my personal account officer as I have already instructed them to attend to you immediately.

Due to the nature of my person I might not be able to communicate frequently with you after this email but Mrs. Harris (CEO of Bloomberg Philanthropies) will be checking from time to time and we'll always do her best to reach out to you. Mrs Harris Contact personal Fax number +447451284541

I want you to get in touch with the bank and claim the funds as quickly as possible. It is Better with you than in the bank. Direct your information to them through this Email ( [email protected] ) for assistance.

Now, get in Touch with the financiers to disburse the funds to you. I have also sent an email in your favor to them, for more clarification please state my code to them BLOOM-COOP/5/CD/0020CF/UK. You will have to open an account with my Private Bank, to make sure you have easy transfer of the funds into your local account. Do follow their instructions without argument.

-Personal Private E-mail: [email protected]
-Fax Number: +44 7451226668
-Personal Private Number: +44 7480729819

On opening an online account, the funds which have been donated to you will automatically be deposited into this offshore account and then you would be given the login information of how to access the account online. From this said Account, you will be able to transfer the funds bit by bit or at once if you please into your local bank account anywhere in the world (International Transfers).

Due to new monetary policies, it is compulsory for a beneficiary to open an account with the designated bank of disbursement of funds, for proper monitoring on an international transaction. These reasons are to protect beneficiaries against money laundering, double claim of donation funds and misappropriation of international funds transfer.

Please kindly follow instructions from MR. DANIEL GREENE and all will be sorted out.

Feel free to contact me at any time and we would be glad to help if we can. For quick response make sure you write the bank via both emails provided above.
