Well if you heard it on "the internet," then it probably is true. I also heard on the internet I have a rich uncle in Nigeria that I've never met or even heard of who died recently, and I am going to inherit $50 million USD, all I have to do is provide my credit card to cover the administrative costs. In the words of Dave Chappelle..."I'm rich,......!"

Highly plausible, except it came from the internet, which Al Gore did not invent by the way.

Any one who has done business in the Middle East knows that this is standard operating procedure. Nothing would get done there without it.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
