Paid UNIDO Part-Time Job

Once again, there is a job scam email circulating that is impersonating a UN organization, specifically the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). It is quite similar to a fake UNESCO job offer email that we saw a few weeks ago. Note that the sender is not someone from; this is a sign that the email is fraudulent.

Always be wary of job offers that come out of the blue from a person or organization that you don’t know; they are very likely to be a scam. The numerous capitalization and grammar errors in the email are also a bad sign. Do not open any attachments from such emails in case they contain malware.

If you’re wondering why the scammer is asking you to reply from your alternative email address, it’s because they want to shift the conversation off UVic email to evade our monitoring and detection systems.
