Is UNICEF a scam?
Firstly I must mention I cannot say for certain that Unicef is a scam but I can tell you about the two bad incidents I had with them. The first was via an offer with Maximiles, the agreement was that if I donated to their charity I would earn Maximiles for taking part. I agreed with the intention of being a regular donor. The terms of the offer said I would receive the points in my Maximiles account within 3 months. However, after 3 months and 3 donations I still hadn’t received my points. I contacted Maximiles and they said they would investigate. A few days later I was told that Unicef claimed I signed up directly with them and not via Maximiles which meant no points for me. Well now I must let you know that I have completed hundreds of transactions with Maximiles and know how to complete each offer. UNICEF has been the ONLY transaction where I did not receive my points. Did they lie to Maximiles? I cannot be sure as it could have been a computer error but charity was not their strong point and they lost me as a donor. The second incident was recent. I was happily watching TV and relaxing when there was a knock at the door. I answered and it was two men promoting UNICEF. I barely had a chance to speak during their hard sell technique. Before long I was again a member of Unicef through being too weak and being caught off guard. I also had no choice for the donation amount, I was hoping for £2 – £3 / month like I pay for the other charities I have donated to but their minimum was £8.50. The man doing the talking used many distraction techniques and seemed trained in ‘buttering’ up potential sales of which they will earn from. Not nice being invaded at your own front door! Is Unicef a scam? Is there Unicef fraud? There may not be a UNICEF scam but they are certainly immoral, possibly liars and as I said earlier Charity is not their strong point. In my humble opinion!
