Sultan Haji Hassanul Bolkiah of Brunei Foundation donation for Islam scam

This scam preys on emotions of Muslims, asking them to donate to a foundation headed by Sultan Hassan Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei.

Of course, a foundation by the name "Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Foundation" does exist. However, it would not need to ask for money (Brunei and the Sultan are oil rich), nor will it do so via an obscure email.

Here is the text of the mail:

From: "Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah" <>

Greetings in the name of Allah, the most beneficent,the most merciful.

Dear friend in Islam,

In todays world where Islam is being linked to terrorism we muslims have a duty to defend our good religion thereby exonerating ourselves from the negative image being created by western media against our faith. No one else but we muslims can do this for ourselves. Age or gender is not a barrier you can always make an impact no matter who you are.

The sultan of Brunei is currently funding muslims willing to take up a role for the propagation of the good message of Islam. This is the work of ALLAH which we Muslims are called as revealed to his holliness prophet Muhammad(peace be unto his name). We must not continue allowing the western media determine the image of Islam to the whole world.

If you are willing to stand up for our faith please indicate your interest and also a pledge to use any money received judiciously. Then will my international fund managers contact you to raise you a bank draft/cheque. Since this is also a way of paying my zakat(Qur'an 9:60) I am still deciding on the amount you will receive but be informed when you receive the money you use it for the propagation of the good message of Islam for example in radio talk shows , TV , print , internet or any medium prefarable to you like charity works.If you are not in position to undertake this responsibility you may simply pass on any money received to any good muslim within your community who you feel can undertake this project, all I want is good results no matter how money spent.

Your response and any gratitude should be sent to the Sultan Haji Foundation at email: to the attention of my secretary Mr.Yang Mulia Awang Haji or to Mr.J. H.Bin Lunchai. Note that message sent otherwise will not get a reply.

سيدي المحترم،

ومع المعلومات التي جمعت حتى الآن، أود أن أغتنم هذه الفرصة
أن نناشدكم وجميع الله خوفا من الناس في منظمتكم ل
أعطني يد العون لإرسال أبنائي إلى المدرسة.

اسمي جانكاه كولي من ليبيريا في غرب أفريقيا، ولدت من قبل
كما تزوجت من رجل مسلم قتل
فيروس إيبولا، بعد وفاة زوجي الأول
تم إخراجه من الأسرة لأنني تحولت إلى الإسلام
و ولدت كاملة مرة أخرى مسلم، لقد وجدت النور والحقيقة في
الإسلام حتى أعطي حياتي إلى الله والخلاص هو لي،
"الثناء على الله" والدي وأسر زوجي رفضت لي
وأخرجني من العائلة وهددني بقتلني وأولادي
إذا لم أعود إلى المسيحية الآن، أنا وأطفالي ينام في
جداول السوق وأيضا بلدي أربعة (4) أطفال خارج المدرسة بسبب
والمشكلة المالية والإسكان.
الآن ليس لدي وظيفة لدعم تعليم أولادي أو تأجير
غرفة واحدة، أو لتوفير الغذاء والملابس بالنسبة لهم والمدرسة
هو في متناول اليد، الذي سيوفر لهم. أنا هنا يسأل وجذابة
إلى الله خوفا المنظمة وأعضائها أن تعطيني مساعدة
يد لدعم تعليم أطفالي. واستئجار غرفة واحدة بالنسبة لنا
لحمايتني وأولادي من الخطر. سيدي، أنا
نناشدكم جميعا في اسم الله أن يأتي إلى نداءي وإنقاذ
حياة أطفالي ومستقبلهم.

بارك الله فيكم جميعا
جانكا كولي
