Beware of "Western Union/United Nation (UN/WU) Poverty Alleviation Program" Scams

Recipients of email messages (see below), which appear as if they came from Western Union/United Nation, claiming thousands or millions of dollars will be sent or remitted to them that have been approved by the on-going poverty alleviation program, is a scam or fakes sent by scammers. Scammers send out thousands of the same fake email messages to potential victims every month, in an attempt to trick them into sending them money, which the scammers claim the potential victims must do in order to receive the money that was promised to them. But, it doesn't matter how much money potential victims send, they will never receive the money they were promised, and the scammers will take the money that was sent by their victims and disappear, or continue to trick their victims into sending them more money. Therefore, persons who have received email messages claiming that thousands or millions of dollars will be sent to them via the Western Union/United Nation On-going Poverty Alleviation Program, should delete the messages and never follow the instructions in them.

Please continue reading below.

Remember, never send money to anyone who claims that you have won or have been approved for thousands or millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your prize or money. This is the first indication that scammers are attempting to scam or trick you into sending money.
