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.
