Fraud Alert

Decent Jobs for Youth, a United Nations system-wide effort, led by the ILO and Generation Unlimited, launched at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly and supported by UNICEF have been made aware of various correspondences, being circulated via e-mail, from Internet websites, and via regular mail or facsimile, falsely stating that they are issued by, or in association with the entities contributing to YouthForesight (the “Contributing Entities”) 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.

We wish to warn the public at large about these fraudulent activities being perpetrated purportedly in the name of the Contributing Entities, and/or its officials, and would appreciate your bringing suspect communications to our attention.

Please note that:

  • The Contributing Entities do not charge a fee for the publication of material on this website.
  • The Contributing Entities do not request any information related to bank accounts or other private information.
  • The Contributing Entities do not offer prizes, awards, funds, certificates, scholarships or conduct lotteries through e-mail, mail or fax.

We strongly recommend that the recipients of solicitations such as those described above exercise extreme caution in respect of such solicitations. Financial loss and identity theft could result from the transfer of money or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondence. Victims of such scams may also report them to their local law enforcement authorities for appropriate action.
