A press release from the UN’s Department of Public Information warns of a number of perpetrators have established a heist, using the UN’s name and emblem on correspondence, websites and emails. These are circulating all over the world, and the purpose is to get personal information and even money from their targets that fall prey to their hoax.
The UN reminds the public that when looking for a job with them, they don’t ask for a fee at any stage of the job seeking process.

The United Nations does not concern itself with information on bank accounts.” The UN also wants people to know that they do not offer awards, funds, scholarships, jobs, prizes or certificates through unsolicited mail, emails or phone calls. Only official UN channels are used for communication in regards to employment. The UN does not conduct lotteries.
