I’ve been getting lots of responses from people who have also received these fake emails from groups pretending affiliation with the United Nations. A nice person forwarded to me all of the documents and communications that she received when she applied for a job with the “US Committee for the UN.” She notes that after she applied for one of the jobs, she received the following response:
Dear Applicant, As a furtherance to your Application,you are directed to download the attached forms(Employment & Interview),complete them and send back to us ASAP as recruitment processes had already begun. This will enable us to know more of you pending further questions via telephone or online job interview if we consider necessary. We look forward to receiving the completed forms from you at the very earliest.
Sincerely Yours, Dr. David Cameron
Attached to this email were an “employment form” and “interview form.” After responding to that email, she soon received another reply. Apparently, surprise, she got the job!
Dear [person’s name],
Following your successful employment with US COMMITTEE for UN ,you will find attached our offer letter,contract agreement and alien employment authorisation form. Please execute the items,complete and return the 2 forms within 3 working days to enable us conclude all other matters relating to your

The best part is where it details in the job offer letter the salary of the position she applied for:
- Basic Salary 98,250.00 p.a net
- Housing Allowance 39,150.00 p.a net
- Mileage Allowance 19,200.00 p.a net
- Dress Allowance 10,000.00 p.a net
- Lunch Subsidy 8,000.00 p.a.net
- NET TOTAL PAY US$174,600.00
Man, what I would give for a $10,000 “dress allowance” and an $8,000 “lunch subsidy”!!!
If anyone can make heads or tails of this, apparently lots of folks would like to know what the scam is all about.
