Regardless of the validity of the website, if you received unexpected email from a stranger awarding you money from the foundation, you are being hoaxed. See recent examples of the scam at

See another example of the scam at

Now then, about the domain patrickfrancesfoundation.org:
Its domain registration is through a French company (French Connexion dba Domaine.fr) that reports that the unnamed owner is located in Ohio, USA. I don't know if the website is legitimate, but were I an enormously wealthy Irishman, I would be much more likely to relocate to France and to have my website in Ohio instead of the other way round. :-)

But maybe other members of the WOT users' community might have some insight about this.

patrickfrancesfoundation.org is fake. The site is insecure & poorly designed with bad grammar, spelling & punctuation.
There's no contact address, privacy policy or social media links.

It implies it's a charity, but 'Frances and Patrick Connolly Foundation' is not a registered UK charity. Site asks for donations, but donation page is currently missing.

Some of the gallery photos are stolen from older sites.
