Beware of scams implying association with the United Nations in Iran
The United Nations in Iran has been made aware of various correspondences, being circulated via e-mail, from internet web sites, text messages and via regular mail or facsimile, falsely stating that they are issued by, or in association with the United Nations in Iran and/or its officials. These scams, which may seek to obtain money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence, are fraudulent.
The United Nations in Iran wishes to warn the public at large about these fraudulent activities being perpetrated purportedly in the name of the Organization, and/or its officials.
Please note that:
- The United Nations in Iran does not charge a fee at any stage of its recruitment process (application, interview, processing, training or other fee).
- The United Nations in Iran does not request any information related to bank accounts or other private information.
- The United Nations in Iran does not offer prizes, awards, funds, certificates, compensation for internet fraud, scholarships or conduct lotteries through e-mail, mail or fax.
The United Nations in Iran strongly recommends that the recipients of solicitations such as those described above exercise extreme caution in respect of such solicitations. Financial loss and identity theft could result from the transfer of money or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondence. Victims of such scams may also report them to their local law enforcement authorities for appropriate action.
