IFC Grant Program Scam - Fake World Bank and UBA Email

The IFC Grant Program scam or Global Development Funding Program below is being used by online scammers to trick potential victims. The scammers asked potential victims to provide personal information such as signatures or bank account information, and to pay certain advance fees, often described as "processing fees." In return, the potential victim was promised sums of money that the person soliciting the "fees" had no intention of paying. In some cases, those seeking the funds used the names of actual Bank staff members to sign the letters in order to bolster their credibility.
