BEWARE OF SCAMS IMPLYING ASSOCIATION WITH THE GLOBAL FEDERATION for sustainble development

The Global Federation has been made aware of various correspondences, being circulated via e-mail, from Internet web sites, text messages and via regular mail or facsimile, falsely stating that they are issued by, or in association with the Global Federation and/or its officials. These scams, which may seek to obtain money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence, are fraudulent.

The Global Federation wishes to warn the public at large about these fraudulent activities being perpetrated purportedly in the name of the Organization, and/or its officials, through different fraud schemes.

  • The Global Federation does not charge a fee at any stage of its recruitment process(application, interview, processing, training) or other fee, or request information on applicants’ bank accounts. To apply for a job go to un.org and click on Vacancies. See more on employment-related fraud.
