The United Nations just loves to give away money. Here we are to believe that the money the UN owes you is ready to be sent, courtesy of Western Union. All you have to do is, you know, confirm your identity (wink, wink). In other words, give your contact information to the scammers. You’ll soon find that there are “transaction fees” to be paid before the non-existent funds can be transferred.
