Beware of "United Nations/IMF Compensation Department" Scams

Recipients of email messages like the one below, which claim they have been approved by the United Nations/IMF to receive millions of dollars in compensation are actually scams or fake email messages being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. The lottery scammers send the fake and fraudulent email messages to their potential victims to trick them into sending their personal information. The potential victims' information will then be used to contact them in an attempt to trick them into sending money, which the scammers will claim is for processing fee, taxes, delivery fee, transfer fee or some other fee. But, if the potential victims send their money, the scammers will take it and disappear, and not send the money that was promised.

Please continue below.

to each beneficiary. We have so far, reconciled and have paid over 62 beneficiaries, who have had various problems receiving their payments in the past.

    Dear sir,

    I received an email dated 26 Nov 2017 from the United Nations HQ, New York City ( email address :huston_yabee@aol.co.uk )by Mr. Mark Garten stating that I am one of the 55 selected "Scam Victims Beneficiary" to be compensated from the money recover from the internet fraudsters account with the sum of $950,000.

    I was asked to refer to EXIM BANK OF CHINA ( eximpaymentcn@qq.com )who later refer me to China Citic Bank ( remitt_dept@eciticbmkcn.com ) for all my particulars. China Citic Bank issued approval letter for the payment of $950,000 and certificate from the Ministry of Foreign and Public Affairs, Beijing, China. They provided bank account no. to logon to www.ecitiegzcn.com/i. When I did, it needed an activation code from the Chinese Banking Regulatory Commission which I have to pay via Western Union $730 to an account officer.

    As soon as I got the activation code, I thought I can transfer the money to my designated account in Malaysia within 3 - 5 business days. To my surprise this afternoon, I received another email from China Citic Bank stating that I need to pay for the Asia Financial Inspection Board ( AFIB ) Clearance Certificate fee of $2,300 before they can release the fund. Letter from AFIB is also attached.

    After going through the UN internet scam, could it be another new scam ??

    Yours sincerely

    Liew FooK Kiew

      Yes, it is another scam.
