Please do not be fooled by these scammers and do not send money to receive money, call or send your information. Why would the United Nations wants you to send e-mails to free e-mail address providers (non-corporate) like mail.mn instead of their own organization website: un.org.

Anyone can setup a free e-mail account at these free e-mail providers and use it for scamming. If you send an email to someone at mail.mn, you cannot tell who will receive this e-mail but, if you send to someone at un.org, will certainly know that it will be received by someone at the United Nations.

A lot of my friends have told me that they have been receiving Nigerian scam e-mails using mail.mn email accounts.

    My email was titled "Beneficiary/compensation" and was sent on 17/01/2015 at 09:39:10, asking me to contact Mrs Kethrin ObI at mrskethrinobi@hotmail.com.

    I was scammed about a year ago and, if I had a bad heart, I would have been dead - the person was good but thank the Lord I insisted in getting back to him.

    My lawyer who was handing my case at that time told me the government does not operate that way. How can these people sleep at night.

    So, I was ready for this one. Praise the Lord, as I read it, many questions came into mind, like the email address, email verses registered mail, this agency asking for information they already have. Then I googled the agency and found this site - thanks, it is very informative. Sybil

    The intention is to scam you of your hard earned money. With your information they can call you at anything claiming you are the winner of something and try to get you to send them money in order to receive your prize.

    Once it says Nigeria, it is a scam. The domain wemabank-online.org is not a website. Type wemabank-online.org in your browser and you will see that it takes you to a VistaPrint Free Website ad.
