UNCC REFUND PAYMENT FOR YOU United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) In Affiliation With Barrack Obama Campaign to Assist Scammed Individuals In The Settlement Of Disputes Through Zenith Bank Plc. Attention: Sir/Madam How are you doing today? Hope all is well with you and your family? You may not understand why this mail came to you but kindly read the following procedures for your claim.The United Nation Compensation Commission (UNCC) was created in 1991 as a subsidiary organ of the UN Security Council. Its mandate is to process claims and pay compensation for losses and damages suffered as a direct result of Internet Fraud. The UNCC in conjunction with the Obama Campaign on the 12th of October 2006 organized a confederation meeting which ended 2 weeks later, with the Secretary General to the UNITED NATIONS.This meeting was first held on the 8th of march 2009 by the then secretary to the UN. You can view this page for your perusal (www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2003/ik344.doc.htm). This email is directed to all individuals that have been scammed in all parts of the world. In reference to the just concluded meeting, the UNCC in affiliation with Barrack Obama Campaign have agreed to compensate them with categorical payment sum of $500,000 each. In its decision 17" of 24th March 2006, the Governing Council established basic principles for the distribution of compensation payments to successful claimants. This decision was made two months before the resolution of the first installment of claims before the Commission. As stated in the Secretary-General’s report of 2nd May 2006, it was anticipated that the value of approved awards would far exceed the resources available in the Compensation Fund at any given time. The Governing Council therefore devised a mechanism for the allocation of available funds to successful claimants that gave priority to the three urgent categories of claims and which, within each category, would give equal treatment to similarly situated claims. Only when each successful claimant in categories "A", "B" and "C" had been paid an initial amount up to US$2,500 would payments commence for claims in other categories. Accordingly, the first phase of payment involved an initial payment of US$2,500 to each successful individual claimant in categories "A" and "C". However, for humanitarian reasons, all category "B" claims will be paid in full of a total USD$500,000. A total of US$3,252,337,997.09 was made available to 1,498,119 successful individual claimants in categories "A", "B" and "C" under the first phase of payments. Claimants includes every foreign contractor that may have not received their contract sum, and people that have had an unfinished transaction or international businesses that failed due to Government problems etc.We found your name in our list and that is why you are receiving this email notification.
