Oy. Once again, someone is seeking to separate people from their money by offering money. The United Nations does not donate money to random individuals, but that does not keep spammers from sharing it. And people still fall for it regularly. The lure of free money in any economy trumps critical thinking at times.
The grammatical errors are straight from the email itself.

When the UN comes out and states that these types of messages are fraudulent, you’d think the scammers would try something different. It’s shameful, pathetic, and scummy.
