UNICEF “RN” Scam

One of the newer scams going around the internet these days is the “UNICEF” scam.  This is just a new type of romance scam.  It is recently popular in Africa, especially Ghana.  The scammer meets sincere persons on dating sites by creating dozens of Careful of Online Scamsfake profiles at many dating sites (often copied profiles and stolen pictures) and claims to be a RN (registered nurse) or other type of UNICEF worker.

Then, after developing an online “relationship” the scammer asks for funding, either because he/she lost her passport, or need money to get an educational certificate, or for a plane ticket, etc,etc.

In short, the whole story about UNICEF (or any other organization) is a cover and in fact nobody was ever born in the USA/Philippines/Russia/France.  These are simply African scammers creating a story to trick honest people into sending them money.

Never send money to someone you met online but have not met in person.  If you ever meet someone with this story on our site, or any story that seems similar, contact us immediately.  If you meet someone from a different site with a story like this, you are still welcome to post your experience in the comments for this blog to help others avoid falling into these kinds of traps.

Here is an example UNICEF profile that we suspended from our site:

Personal Details

Age: 32
Gender: Woman
Location: Makati, Manila, Philippines
About myself: I am looking for a man who truly wants to find a good woman to place in his life for a meaningful relationship which could lead to marriage.There is nothing more precious than being with the person you love and having a family to call your own, and having someone to love you and care for you. Are you looking for a wonderful, spirit-filled Christian Lady? Well i am a Registered Nurse (RNs) by Profession working under UNICEF as a Volunteer.I have been to so many country’s because of my Voluntary work with UNICEF.Have you been searching for the love of your life? Then, am the only good lady for you.Well I am however concerned with the mental maturity of the individual and the inner beauty My Man possess. I am looking for a man who truly wants to find a good woman to place in his life for a meaningful relationship which could lead to marriage. Isaiah 35:4 your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” that’s me for you. I want a man who can appreciate me for all that I am, treats me with respect and consideration,a man who will understands me even better than I understand myself, sometimes just looks at me with out words but knows what is going on.I want someone that I will miss when we are not together, and are looking forward to the next time we connect.

You can sometimes find profiles like that by searching for “unicef” at other dating sites if you would like to communicate with a scammer on your own (we do not recommend it!)

However, of course most of these scammers are not dumb enough to actually put UNICEF right in their profile because we would never allow them on the site.  So they simply copy another member profile, and only later let on about the “unicef” or other charitable project later in a personal message.

Here are some phrases from actual scammers that should clue you in to this kind of scam:
