You you receive an email, which claims to be from Nelson Mandela's donor relations manager. The message describes the fundraising and charity work done by the "Nelson Mandela Fund." Then, it asks your help in setting up a new branch of the charity, which will receive donations from a British company. Answer the email, and you are likely to find yourself part of a fake check scam. This is where con artists send you a fake check, ask you to deposit it and instruct you to immediately wire all or part of the money. The bank won't catch the fraudulent check until after the wire transfer goes through. As always, watch for variations on this scam.
