Be aware of an email phishing scam claiming to be soliciting applications for a UNICEF work-from-home job opportunity. It includes a letter attachment that appears to have been written by Etleva Kadilli, Director and Clinical Counselor of Supply Division of United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
- Scammers may attempt to convince individuals who respond to share their university credentials or provide some form of monetary payment.
- UNICEF does not charge a fee at any stage in the recruitment process
