Somalilandsun: Of late my email has been clogged up with messages from one Joseph Esenwa who claims to be acting on behalf of the United Nations Assistant secretary general for development coordination.
In this scam Joseph Esenwa informs that his alleged boss in affiliation with the World Bank have awarded me a whopping $1.5m as 2020 Covid-19 compensation payment.
The whole essence behind is a design swindle the target beneficiary after obtaining personal banking information like bank account and credit -debit card details.
Below exact message from Joseph Esenwa
Quote: “United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Development
Coordination, In Affiliation with World Bank.
Dear Beneficiary, Yusuf Mohamed Hasan

compensation payment which has since been assigned to you. We were going through your payment portfolio and came to a logical conclusion that you are yet to receive your 2020 Covid-19 compensation payment.
We must get you informed that your email was listed among those that are yet to receive their compensation payment. The United Nations in Affiliation with World Bank have agreed to compensate each with the sum of USD1,500, 000.00 (One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) only.
For this reason, you are to receive your payment through a certified
ATM CARD PAYMENT. Note, with this ATM Card you can withdraw money and also make payment anywhere in the World without any problem and please for no reason should you disclose your account information as your
account information is not and can never be needed before you receive your card payment.

Joseph Esenwa so that within 24-72 hours you would have received your card payment and your secret pin code issued directly to you for
