World Health Organization COVID-19 Grant Scam

Scammers are sending out fake World Health Organization COVID-19 grant scam emails like the one below. Recipients asked not to respond to the email because they are being sent by scammers, not the WHO. The scammers' aim is to trick the recipients into sending them money for a grant that doesn't exist. If the victims send money, the scammers will take it and disappear and the victims will never get the grant they were promised.

    Oh, I replied alright! This is what I wrote:

    You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Trying to take advantage of people during this trying time. People like you, people who try to profit from peoples’ pain and suffering will most definitely reap what you sow. Be careful who you contact. There are some very powerful people out there who can make life a nightmare for you! If I ever get an email from you again, you will see what I mean!

    I don't think they'll be contacting me again! Lol
