Subject: Congratulations From Western Union / Money Gram..


Dear Beneficiary,


After proper and several investigations and research at Western Union
and Money Gram Office, we found your name in Western Union database
among those that have sent money through Western Union and this proves
that you have truly been swindled by those unscrupulous persons by
sending money to them through Western Union/Money Gram in the course
of getting one fund or the other that is not real.


In this regard a meeting was held between the Board of Directors of
WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM, the FBI alongside with the Ministry of
Finance, As a consequence of our investigations it was agreed that the
sum of Two Hundred And Fifty Thousand United States Dollars
(U.S.250,000.00) should be AWARDED to you out from the funds that The
United States Department of the Treasury has set aside as compensation
payment for scam victims.


This case would be handled and supervised by the FBI. We have
submitted your details to them so that your funds can be delivered to
you. Contact the Western Union agent office through the information
below:

  1. Hey just wanted to say thanks for sharing this and putting it out there for others to beware and be extra cautious ANY TIME they receive some email like this especially if you know you’re not expecting anything or any large sums of money or haven’t recently (POSITIVELY) heard on the news about said company or government programs have been created. Pretty much, if you get this or a similar email offering a crazy sum of $ for an off the wall reason you know its a scam… And to me, the BIG red flag or sure moment i know for a fact its a definite scam is when they write that very unusual and seemingly illegal list of information they need from you with questions like, “drivers license #” or S.S. # which sometimes they do get ignorant enough to ask, (like any normal human being with even the slightest bit of common sense would just say, “okay! Here’s the most personal id # any person owns, and this is mine and its all yours!). LOL its crazy to think how many people in the world would and already have given their social security #’s out not only in these situations but on the internet, period without much knowledge or background about the person or company whatsoever. In this sort of situation though if you’re not positively aware of such “government” programs or whatever cases its best to just assume immediately It’s a scam cause it is ALWAYS a scam. And in the case you for some reason feel it could be legit for whatever reason like this one here, Glen Moore, his email was pretty convincing as far as looking legit and like its really from some company, then, still, BEFORE SENDING ANY PERSONAL INFO back to them, go on the web and search their name, the company they’re claiming to be from to see if they even have such information or offers listed on their website or you can take the number they give you and do a search to see what comes up and know that if it doesn’t come up as the company they’re claiming to be from, usually being the so called government, then that right there shows its fake and just a scam and also nine times out of ten, other people have already made a blog or something talking about the type of offer or something extremely similar and have a spot for others to contribute and join in making others aware by leaving a post with all known aliases and or phone numbers associated with such company or persons. Seriously though, EVERYONE PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL AND CAUTIOUS WITH THESE SORT OF EMAILS & if you’re able, PLEASE go online and take the time to alert the fraud and scamming to authorities online or make a quick post on social media or what ever so its out there for others to see and be available to when they try and search the web and get some facts themselves. We all gotta have each others backs against these no good criminals and put an end to their pain and suffering they carelessly try on anyone who’s naive or gullible or just straight up desperate for money enough to take it seriously without getting he facts first. God bless you all and pray that you all help spread the word and pray you all stay safe and out of any kinda of frauds reach. Of we all look out for one another like we should, we can stop these guys, just keep your faith and always be aware and extra cautious when opening any emails or messages from anyone you don’t personally know. Stay safe and I wish everyone a blessed, happy, healthy & prosperous journey in their lives and wish you strength and al the wealth and happiness yall deserve through out it all.

  2. I did respond to the mail. but did call out the scam.

    Did I do bad?

    Simply said send it by check or fuck yourself more or less… or u just said ppl trying ti scam ppl…

    did I do bad?

    1. The only danger in replying is that you are giving them your Email address. Although they already had it, you have confirmed it is a live account that is read by a human.

      Don’t panic though. Most of the time nothing will happen but be aware that you may be targeted for a more personal approach, particularly for offers of compensation. Just be sensible and remember that no random stranger will be giving you money.
