Beware of "United Nations/IMF Compensation Department" Scams

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.

I wish to notify you that the sum of US$5.5 million United States Dollars only,has been approved to you.This action, was the final

resolution taken by United Nations/IMF to clear up all outstanding debt by cutting all debt payments down to US$5.5million only

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. We have been able to ascertain the cause of some of these delays, which was pointed to divert of beneficiary's funds by officials of payment agencies or Banks. Fraudulent officials and banks that unfeelingly extort money from beneficiaries.

All these problems have been removed and most beneficiaries whose records have been submitted to us have been paid directly by (ATM

Visa card).
