|The Principal Of A School Was Scammed Of $100K By A Fake Elon Musk by booksdey(m): 2:29pm On Mar 30|
The principal of a Florida charter school was scammed out of $100,000 after she fell for a fake Elon Musk email. The email, which was sent to the school's finance department, claimed that Musk wanted to make a donation to the school. The finance department then sent the money to a bank account that was controlled by the scammers.
The principal, who has not been identified, reportedly believed the email was legitimate because it had a verified blue checkmark next to Musk's name. However, the blue checkmark was actually a fake one that had been created by the scammers.
The school has since filed a police report and is working to recover the money. However, it is unclear if the money will be able to be recovered.
This scam is a reminder that even the most tech-savvy people can be fooled by fake emails. It is important to be careful when receiving emails from people you do not know, and to always verify the sender's identity before sending any money or personal information.

the above is false...only a very foolish person will send $100k of their own money to a phoney bank account to receive donation (from Elon Musk of all people).
