Yet another interesting spam.

This is one interesting spam that landed in my inbox.

Dear Sir/Madam,

UN Foundation Grant.

This is to notify you that you have been chosen By the Board of trustees of the above International (Charity & Human Developmental) Organization, as one of the final recipients of a Cash Grant/Donation for your personal development.

The UN Foundation was created in 1998 with entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turners' historic $1 billion gift to support UN Causes and activities. The UN Foundation builds and implements public-private partnerships to address the world?s most pressing problems, and broadens support for the UN through advocacy and public outreach. The UN Foundation is a public charity.

The Secretary-General established the United Nations Fund for
International Partnerships (UNFIP) in March 1998 to coordinate, channel and monitor contributions from the UN Foundation. UNFIP is the central administrative vehicle within the UN system to identify and select projects for UN Foundation funding, receive and distribute UN Foundation funds, and monitor and evaluate the use of UN Foundation funds.

In line with the arrangements for the 10th year anniversary program this year, the UN Foundation in conjunction with the Economic Community for West African States (ECOWAS), United Nations Organization (UNO) and the European Union, is giving out a yearly donation of Ten Million United States Dollars as specific Donations/Grants to 100 lucky international recipients worldwide in different categories for their personal and community development and upliftment of their educational morale. The objective is to make a notable change in the standard of living of people in United Nations Member Countries.

Based on the random selection of internet Web Pages and millions of Supermarket cash invoices worldwide you were selected among the beneficiaries to receive the sum of $200,000.00USD (Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) as developmental aid from the UN Foundation, in accordance with the enabling act of Parliament Be informed that the UN Foundation has been assured of highest Organization standard courtesy of the United Nations if we can achieve a great positive change in the general welfare of the universe through this program.

Beneficiaries have been chosen from every UN Member Nation from all Continents. The idea of this donation is that within ten years from now, there will be notable wealth among many unusual people around the world. This will give everyone the opportunity to improve their standards of living. It?s important to note that you will only be chosen to receive the donation once, which implies that subsequent yearly donation will not get to you again.

The ITIL Foundation, UK has been appointed to oversee this development affair.

You are required to expeditiously Contact the Executive Secretary of The ITIL Foundation with the details below for documentation and processing of the release of your cash aid, between the hours of 8.00am - 7.00pm on Monday through Saturday.Please endeavor to quote your Qualification numbers (UNI/ITIL-816-1119 G-987-94) in all discussions.

Please note that the release of your cash aid/donations is to be administered by The ITIL Foundation, UK under delegated powers from the UN Foundation. You are hereby advised to keep this whole information confidential until your donations have been duly remitted to you.
