Excerpt
Various scam emails purporting or implying to be from or associated with the World Health Organization (WHO), have been circulating on the Internet. Some of these emails request detailed information andlor money from individuals, businesses or nonprofit organizations with the promise that they will receive funds or other benefits in return. Other emails ask for registration fees for conferences allegedly sponsored by WHO and for hotel reservations, again with the promise of certain benefits. These emails sometimes carry the WHO logo, and emanate from or refer to an email address which is made to look like a WHO or United Nations address. These emails do not emanate from WHO, and are not in any way associated with WHO projects or events. WHO wishes to warn the public of these misleading practices, and suggests that recipients of invitations such as those described above (whether sent by email or communicated in any other way) verify their authenticity before sending any response. In particular, WHO suggests that recipients do not send money or personal information in response to invitations from anyone who claims to be awarding funds, grants, scholarships, certificates, lottery winnings, or prizes, and/or who requests payment for registration fees and hotel rooms reservations, in the name of WHO. It is not WHO policy to charge for attendance at meetings.
