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:

Date: Thu, 19 Jul 2007 05:58:13 +0800 (BNT)
Subject: Stand up for Islam
From: "Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah" <sultan@netkad.com.bn>
To: foundation@netkad.com.bn

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: foundation@netkad.com.bn 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.

Please Help My Children

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
شكر،
جانكا كولي

Need Help

This is an example of many emails and comments that I receive on the assumption that this web site belongs to the Sultan of Brunei:

I am [deleted] from Lucknow,up,India.

I have a student loan of 2.78lakh which now became around 6 lakh.

I got married on [deleted] 2013 but they greedy people started torturing me from the very first day, they tried to kill me thrice, beaten me badly , my left ear ruptured and when I came to know that they wanted to kill me again and wanted to replace me with my younger sister [deleted] (who recently got government job at that time) then after six months of my marriage I finally left their home and filed an FIR against them.

They never appeared, he has not given me divorce, not giving me any expenses and ran away to Dubai.

From past three years I am living in poor condition, suffering from anxiety and depression, running from court to court and hospital to hospital. I am unable to manage my expenses.

Kindly help me out.

Financial Help

Dear Sir,
I am writing this mail to you with tears and sorrow from my heart. I have a special reason why I have decided to contact you, is due to the urgency of my situation. I'm a Bangladeshi. You know Bangladesh is a third world country. Still 40% of its population live under poverty line and unfortunately my position is here. I'm a simple government service holder.There are six members in my family. The month end salary amounting of US $565.00 from my job is the only source of income of my family. I'm not in the position to bear my family expenses. I've two school going daughters. One is in grade 10 and the other is in grade 6. I can't meet their tuition and boarding fees. Besides, I took a loan of US$70,000.00 against mortgage of my house @ 5% per annum interest and invested in a restaurant business for the good of my family. But unfortunately, I have run a heavy losses in my venture. A few days back I sent an intense message to my friends describing my present situation. My confidence was that some ones would come forward, but all of my efforts ended in smoke. Now knowing you as a great friend of poor community I'm approaching you as a last resort and out of utter helplessness to render me immediate succor. My appeal might surprise you as it has always been against my principle in life. But life is more real and important than a principle. Your kind support to a poor family is deeply appreciated. If you have questions, concerns or just want more details, please contact me on [deleted].

Sincerely,
Faruque [deleted].

request for financial help for poor children's education

This is an example of how my web site is thought by some to be the web site of the Sultan of Brunei:

To serve the Rural society Selflessly we, the like minded Group of Ladies have started Chaitanya Vidyalaya ,a rural school at a small village, Murkwad, Tq:Haliyal dist Uttarkannada, Karnataka in India in 2000. The Vidyalaya provides them Value Education including the Ever Super Principles of His Holiness prophet Muhammad.

Our Vidyalaya has more than 700 children including hundreds of Muslim children studying from LKG to PUC, coming from surrounding 10 villages. Most of them belongs to poorest families whose parents are Agro-or building construction labours & because of no rain since 3 yearsin our area, these families have become so poor that even most of them are not able to pay the least fees of our school. We have also adopted poorest boys & girls from ‘Muslim-Siddhi’communities of our area.

To serve the Rural society selflessly we, the like minded women folk have started this school in 2000 & The Vidyalaya provides them value education including the ever supreme principles of His Holiness prophet Muhammad. we have got very good, dedicated teaching staff.

Most of our Children belong to poorest families, whose parents are Agro- labours & because of no rain here, since 3 years, these families have become so poor that even most of them are not able to pay the least fees of our school . So it has become us very difficult to run the school as we cannot get any donation or help from our parents or Govt. So we eagerly look at you to help us to continue to serve these poor rural children. We can also use the part of your kind donation for the propagation of the good message of His Holiness prophet Muhammad through radio talks , TV Dramas, , Sending Massages ,Arranging Essay, Speech,& Drawing competitions to children, Celebrating the festivals etc. Kindly visit our School & help us by adopting our school for further development & grant us monthly salary of our staff in the name of Allah. So that the dedicated teachers can teach our children more better & dedicated, without their family financial worries. I know that You can listen even our whispers! We pray you with our deep heart to help us with your Sky like heartfelt generosity & Earth like handful gift!

We are Waiting for your divine blessings.

Pl Reply. Thank you His Highness
