I've been bombarded lately with a variety of email messages that all look like part of the Nigeria 419 scam. Many are easy to recognize from the way the writer claims to have millions of dollars that he has to get out of the country and I'm just the person to help.
Lately I've been getting email offering me jobs with a UN related committee. It has taken a little bit of research, but these seem to be more of the same.
The email was sent from the IP of a company in Lagos Nigeria (188.8.131.52)
The email purports to be from the United Nations International Development Committee (UNIDC) announcing various job vacancies.
The claim is made in the email that the UNIDC has some relationship to the United Nations Development Committee, but the description of the mission of the UNDC in the email ("to improve the quality of life for millions of people around the world by promoting democratic governance, poverty reduction, rural development, crisis prevention and recovery, energy and environmental issues, and reducing the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic") does not match the role described on the UNDC website.
The email address of the sender is JOBS VACANCY [email@example.com].
The email encourages a responder to write to firstname.lastname@example.org (located in Sao Tome and Principe).
Just one more annoying scam to watch out for.
