IOM is issuing a warning in response to several email requests and queries from various sources asking for assistance in verifying the authenticity of these emails or websites. These fraudulent schemes seek to extract money from migrants by claiming their programme is under the auspices of the destination country, lawyers’ associations, IOM, the United Nations or other humanitarian organizations.
Individuals considering migrating for whatever purpose or destination should take extreme caution in dealing with Internet offers or email marketing in light of recent surge in fraudulent schemes.
If you see any offers using IOM’s name or referring to IOM, please inform your nearest IOM office.
