You've received a phishing email. the purpose of which is just to try to get personal data from you for purposes of possible identity theft and also to try and steal your money.This is a tired old scam that's been going around for years now. Every time someone gets reported on in the papers for having won a large sum of money, scammers come out of the woodwork and start sending emails by the thousands to try to make innocent people think they are going to be gifted a portion of the money because they have been chosen at random to be a lucky donee.Sorry to disappoint you but here's a whole page of scam reports involving
Duarte Almeida who, according to scammers, was donating some of his fortune to people whose names were drawn at random. None of these is real. Alameida is a real person and did win a contest but he's not giving his money away to you or to any other random stranger.Any time you get an email from some person or company you have never dealt with promising you something that is too good to be true, you can be sure it's a scam. You'd never find out something like this from an email. If it were legitimate, you'd get a letter from a lawyer registered or certified mail.If you gave bank account, passport information, or social security numbers to the "foundation" you should take precautions against identity theft. Report the scam to the FBI at their Internet Crime Complaint Center at IC3.gov
