The email message below, which claims that the recipients(scam victims) are approved to receive thousands of dollars in compensation from the United Nations(UN), is a scam that is being sent by scammers to their potential victims. Recipients of the fake email message should not respond to it or follow the instructions in it. Remember, every month, scammers send out thousands of scamming email messages in an attempt to trick recipients into thinking they have won the lottery, or have received money from an organisation or an individual. Potential victims who respond to the scamming email messages will be asked by the scammers to send hundreds or thousands of dollars, which the scammers will claim are for taxes and other fees that the potential victims must pay in order for them to receive their so-called lottery prizes. But, once the scammers receive the money sent by their victims, they will disappear, leaving the victims disappointed, frustrated and thousands of dollars poorer.
