A nasty story, mails keep popping up reporting compensation payments from the UN or other agencies. And this time about Covid-19, what a stupid lie. None of these stories told by Nigerian scammers are true. It’s all about paying a notary and the exorbitant sending fees.
Of course, one has to pay the transport fees for the promised card, and not too little. None of this is true and the scammers are using the Covid19 crisis for their own purposes. Therefore: Do not reply, do not send any personal documents, no money, move the mail to the designated digital bin.
UNITED NATIONS COMPENSATION COMMISSION
United Nations Organization UNCC Secretariat. (Dublin Ireland)
Good Day PAYMENT OF US$ 240,000 .00
Thank you for your swift response to the UNCC message. The United Nations has announced a second wave of relief to help businesses and individuals navigate financial commitments as Covid-19 continues to impact the livelihood of many individuals and businesses across the globe.
The United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC)was created in 1991 as a subsidiary organ of the UN Security Council with a mandate to process claims and pay compensation.
Read from below link to see other payments of compensation: https://www.ungeneva.org/en/news-media/press-release/2021/01/united-nations-compensation-commission-pays-out-us270-million The Governing Council is the organ of the Commission that sets its policy within the framework of relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. As such, it established the criteria for the compensability of claims, the rules, and procedures for processing the claims, the guidelines for the administration and financing of the Compensation Fund, and the procedures for the payment of compensation.
The Governing Council reports regularly to the Security Council on the work of the Commission. In this case, I represent you as your claim agent, and I believe I will provide you great service. There are only three easy steps to this claim.
The US$240,000 will be sent to your designated address in the form of a Visa Debit Card.
1. Please fill out the attached form, sign it, and return it to this office for processing and issuance of the VISA Debit Card.
2. A VISA Debit Card will be dispatched to your designated address very soon once issued by the United Nations Finance Division, and you will be able to track the delivery of your card.
3. Once you confirm that you have received the Visa Debit Card at this office, the card will be activated within 24 hours.
This precaution is taken for security reasons to prevent a fully activated card from falling into the wrong hands.
Awaiting your urgent response,
Mr. Benjamin Sesay Claims Department.
