IFC is aware that unknown persons are sending fraudulent e-mails and/or checks that appear to be from the International Finance Corporation.
These emails are purporting career opportunities and/or advise the recipients that the persons responsible for the e-mails are associated with IFC and claim that IFC is distributing cash "entitlements" (monetary "payments" or money through "online sweepstakes").
Please note that IFC does not use agents or brokers and is not associated in any way with the persons distributing these fraudulent emails or with the activities described in them.
The purpose of the e-mails and/or checks is apparently to induce recipients to disclose personal information in order for the unknown persons to commit identity theft. IFC is taking action to stop such fraudulent e-mails from being distributed.
If you receive any of e-mails claiming to be from "Finance Corp International" or "Dr. Paul Segre" or "Oliver Pram," or "Andrus Ansip" or "United Parcel Service Nigeria LTD", or "Katrina Bowden" please do not reply with any additional information or any personal details.
Similarly, if you receive any unexpected checks from International Finance Corporation, please do not reply with any additional information or any personal details.
