Fake WHO Help Us Donate via Bitcoin Email

The fake WHO email below is a scam being used to trick recipients into sending money to online scammers. The fake email, being sent by cybercriminals, claims that Tedros Adhanom of the World Health Organization is asking for donations via BTC (Bitcoin) to help find the cure or vaccine for coronavirus (CONVID-19). But, this is a lie. The Bitcoin account does not belong to WHO. The account actually belongs to cybercriminals who are attempting to trick potential victims into sending them money.

Beware of criminals pretending to be WHO. Criminals are disguising themselves as WHO to steal money or sensitive information. If you are contacted by a person or organization that appears to be from WHO, verify their authenticity before responding.

The World Health Organization will:

  • never ask you to login to view safety information
  • never email attachments you didn’t ask for
  • never ask you to visit a link outside of www.who.int
  • never charge money to apply for a job, register for a conference, or reserve a hotel
  • never conduct lotteries or offer prizes, grants, certificates or funding through email
  • never ask you to donate directly to emergency response plans or funding appeals.

Beware that criminals use email, websites, phone calls, text messages, and even fax messages for their scams.

You can verify if communication is legit by contacting WHO directly.
