RE: GN109643HT [Another UN-themed job scam]

Once again, a compromised account from a UN organization has been abused to send job scam emails claiming to be from UNESCO. Be wary of unsolicited job offer emails, especially if they come from an organization that you don’t recognize or don’t have prior dealings with. Such emails are very likely to be scams, especially if the offer seems too good to be true. Do not open attachments from such emails in case they contain malware.

A key sign that this email is not legitimate is the fact that it is instructing you to contact an email address on un-escojob[.]com (don’t try going to that site!). This is a fraudulent domain that has been crafted to look like a UNESCO email address. Other red flags include various proofreading errors and the impersonal signature line.
