Tom Crist Email Hoax

Google email users, beware of an email from “Tom Crist–tcrist616@gmail.com.”  The email says, “I made a donation to your account and waiting from you for details.”  The Huffington Post Alberta also reported this email scam in January 2014.

According to Google Search, this circulating email is a scam and exploits the generosity of Calgary, Canadian lotto winner, Tom Crist. Crist won $40 million dollars last year and announced he would funnel all his winnings into a charity setup in his late wife’s name.

The real Tom Crist told the Huffington Post Alberta that his generosity does not extend to individuals he doesn’t know and confirmed these emails are not from him.
