"United Nations/IMF Compensation Department" Scams

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.

    Hello guys,

    I need to know your opinion about if I should file a complaint against these scammers, to the Chinese Police Department?

    At least, I presume that the beneficiary of the money they asked to be sent by Western Union, is a real Chines citizen!

    What do you think?

    Received this scam:

    "Attn:Mr.Freddy Antonio Herradas Garret,

    This is to inform you that the requested Online Account Activation Code Fee is a stipulated policy made mandatory by the Chinese Government to all Chinese Financial Institutions in order to regulate all the financial transactions/ activities within China. As a non-resident customer,you are required by the Chinese Government to procure your Online Account Activation Code(OAAC) from the Chinese Banking Regulatory Commission(CBRC) in order to enable you complete the transfer of your inheritance fund.

    Subsequently,be informed that our management is not authorized to make any deduction from your inheritance fund simply because your claim is covered with hard insurance policy for security purpose and besides your inheritance claim was deposited as a fixed deposit (Bonded Fund) and you should note that it's strictly against our banking ethics to make deduction from any fund covered with hard insurance policy. In that case,you should note that this activation fee is highly essential as to facilitate the smooth transfer of your inheritance claim from your online account with us into your designated bank account.

    Wherefore,you are advised to pay the requested activation fee on or before the next 5 working days in order to avoid termination as our online security department will deactivate your online account within the next 5 working days if you fail to pay the activation fee and be informed that this charge is not deductible as we are not allowed by the Chinese Banking Regulatory Commission(CBRC) to deduct from bonded fund like your inheritance claim.On hearing from you,I will advise you on how to make the payment to enable us finalize with your inheritance claim transfer.

    Noted:that you are to endeavor to do the needful without delays so as to avoid termination of your inheritance payment file and returning fund to the Chinese Government Treasury Department.

    Thanks for your Co-operation.

    Best Regards,

    Mr.Yanlu Xiao.

    Dear Sir,

    I think I am truly a scam victim. I received an email from The United Nation, email: huston_yabee@aol.co.uk on 26.ov 2017 as "Scam Victims Beneficiary" to compensate me with the sum of US$950,000.

    They authorize EXIM Bank of China, email : eximpaymentcn@qq.com, to immediate release the fund.

    Mrs. Hu Xiaolian of EXIM Bank of China later directed to China Citic Bank in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China to release the fund.

    Mr. Yanlu Xiao of China Citic Bank, email: remitt dept@eciticbmcn.com, then another Mrs. Ruoyang Wang, email : legaldeptdirector@ecitcbmkcn.com and also relate to The people Bank of China.

    So far, I have paid stupidly about US$59,000 or Malaysian Ringgit 275,000 to the China Citic Bank, still they insist I pay an initial deposit of US$35,300 before they can credit the fund into my atm card account which they sent to me earlier.

    My relative in Guangzhou found out that it is fake, nobody answered phone, and the director of China Citic Bank does not know this woman who sent me an ID.

    I think and I wake up it is Internet SCAM!

    "I received this email on 26 December 2017:

    S. Kiley - (503) 449-8464 you are to receive A check of 765,500.00 from the United Nations compensation commission, send your info to; UPS-dispatch@Hotmail.com"

  • January 4, 2018 at 9:40 AM by an anonymous user from: Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan, Malaysia

    Date : 04.01.2018

    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.
