The United Nation is scamming for $96.99

This scam message is in two parts. There's a message body, and then a plain-text attachment. Scam, scam, scam. The fact that it's claiming to be from a "Scam Victims Compensations" office doesn't make it any less of a scam. A link to a genuine FedEx page about international rates also doesn't make the message legitimate.

Don't reply, don't be fooled by messages like this.

First, the message body:

Kindly, view your attachment message for your payment !

And then the attachment, which was a plain-text file called UNITED NATION.txt
