Type of a scam Nigerian/Foreign Money Exchange
I’m pretty confident the following is a scam. It came to my email address this morning.
UNITED NATIONS OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL OVERSIGHT SERVICES
Internal Audit,Monitoring,Consulting And Investigations Division.
It is a distinct pleasure to write you..and as you are well aware many foreigners have invested thousands of United States Dollars into Oversea transactions in Hopeless Dreams to have none of them become a reality.
Right now, as directed by our secretary general Mr António Guterres, We have agreed with the Overseas Government that Three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only would be paid to you through the Western Union Money Transfer Via special arrangement as first installment.
This is to enable you have enough funds to pay for the Tax Clearance and bank charges before you will receive the balance of your funds. Please take note that you will pay US$500 only, being Notarization fee and this is the only financial obligation that you will undertake to receive the Three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only through the Western Union Money Transfer.
Lastly,i will like you to reconfirm your information to me such as your full name, address and telephone number so that I will proceed with your Western Union Money Transfer within the next 24 hrs and the transaction information will be released to you.
I await your response for further proceedings.
Ms. Carman L. Lapointe
