Non-IMF related response

 Dear User,

Thank you for your query.

Kindly note that the IMF does NOT endorse the activities of any bank, financial institution, or other public or private agency, nor does it authorize, verify, monitor, or assist in contract or inheritance payments between third parties.

If you have received calls, emails, social media messages or other communications claiming to be from the IMF or an IMF employee and offering grants or payments in exchange for personal information or an advance fee, please do not respond. These are scams that should be reported to your local authorities.

The IMF is an intergovernmental organization whose transactions and operations are carried out directly with its member countries.

We hope you find this information useful. Should you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.
