The "An-unspent US$58.9M IMF Investment Fund" email below is a scam. Therefore, recipients are asked not to follow the instructions in it. The scam tricks potential victims into sending money to the scammers, claiming they will receive their funds once the money is sent. But, if the money is sent, the scammers will disappear with the money sent by the potential victims, and the potential victims will not receive the money they were promised.

Re: An-unspent US$58.9M IMF Investment Fund:
I am the Chief Budget Management Officer and a senior Economic Strategist of OFFICE OF BUDGET AND PLANNING (OBP), International Monetary Fund, IMF. However, I am reaching you on this mail not in that capacity, but in my individual self as you will find out reading below.
To start with, the amount above is a left over/or unspent approved and budgeted FUNDS for various IMF administrative and capital budgets under the purview of my office in 2020. However, due to heavy global financial red tape brought about by the covid-19 pandemic last year, and restrictions on release of non-institutional lump sums, the left over amount was carefully "KEPT APART" in a [BANK SECURITY VAULT] where it would be moved/transferred into the custody/bank account of an interested partner (since I am unable to receive it directly in my name) for a possible Private Investment Contract (PIC) Boost Fund (between us) under your steer-ship and management. But if you are not disposed to our joint investment partnership, of course we can decide on a 50/50 split of the money which allows each of us to take our shares accordingly.
In the light of this, please reply me urgently and feel at ease to request for any additional information/clarification regarding your involvement.
Owing to self protection and sensitivity of my present position, I will appreciate your “WORD” that this transaction shall remain very confidential between the two of us.
Frederik Van Bommel
