HAVE JUST RECIEVED A SIMILAR E-MAIL
FROM SOMEONE CALLED RENNER DAVID.
PHONED ME A WORK AND SENT ME AN
E-MAIL, SAYING I HAD TO PAY 275 DOLLARS
TO RELEASE FUNDS.
REALLY COME ON, SAID HE WAS READY AND THAT
I WOULD HAVE THE CHEQUE BY MONDAY 01/31/11
AS LONG AS I MADE PAYMENT FOR THE RELEASE.
TOLD ME HE WAS THE PAYMENT OFFICER.
ANYONE HEARD OFF HIM AT WESTERN UNION,
IS THIS ANOTHER SCAM
Western Union - Charged/Got no serviceThis is in reference to online.westernunion.com -- This website is a waste of time and money. Spent many hours trying to create a transaction that would wire $150. from my bank account in FL to another in Costa Rica. This was my 1st experience in my life wiring money and it was HORRIBLE. After submitting a lot of personal information, copy of Drivers License and Passport, all numbers of bank account and copy of statement-- and at least 5 hours on the computer over a 6 day period... what did I get for it? An agent telling me the transaction was booked backward and 32 cents was sent to Costa Rica and I have been charged a $22. service fee. I was informed that I should be happy that I wasn't charged a $35. cancellation fee. There is no excuse for charging for a service that was not delivered. If you need to send $$$ anywhere: Here is what I learned... Go to your local Supermarket or convenience store and they can wire if for you within minutes. The paperwork takes about 2 minutes and in another 5 minutes the money will be at its destination. In my case, it cost $14.99 to wire $150.
I was a Federal Special Agent for 28 years and then head of a nationally awarded Consumer Protection Agency for 10 years. I am stunned, as I read these questions, to see that there are people so dumb, not naive, to believe any of this has any remote chance of being true. Are you really stupid enough to beleve that some stranger, who can't spell, represents a bank, an individual or a governmenti in a 3rd world country picked you out of 230 million people in the US and wants to pay you 2 to 25 million dollars?
If you do, then god bless you and please self admit yourself for mental health care and put control of all your finances in your parents or childrens names.
we send the Amount of $5000 to you today but the problem is that the Federal Ministry Of Finance office of Benin Republic stop the money because your file shows that you have not paid the Bond Stamp Duty Fee which is $95 and you are require to do so immediately to enable them release the first batch of your $5.000 after send the fee of $95

HERE IS MY STAFF ID.JPG

I have received both of the below emails just today, and although they are consistent i am not going to be fooled by this bull sh@#. All of the emails are emails i received today.

Ive also been receiving these emails. I knew it was a scam so I emailed them back saying I was contacting investigators and all this other stuff I was saying to them. Now they are saying they have my full address and are coming to arrest me if I dont pay the 46.00 so I can have my funds transferred. They sent me a very threatening email this time in response to the one I sent them. I would like to know how I go about getting them in trouble for this. I believe this has something to do w/ the target and walgreens being hacked into that they got all of our emails.
I've been getting emails that my email address was chosen to be a winner of a lucky draw for a certain amount of money received for being emgañado. Before I could get my money, I have to send a certain amount of services.

I have also recieved these same type messages and im pretty sure its a scam. Lately I have been on my toes about these kind of scams anyways because my mom just recently had her identity stolen and they took over 3000 dollars from her bank account, supposedly they made a pwithdrawl in dubai at a hotel for one dollar (you can't withdrawl this amount only in sums of 20) and thats how they got into her account. Obviously everyone just needs to watch and protect thier money appropiately.
We need not be geniuses to understand the simple logic - 'no pain-no money'. The so called scammers are capitalising on our own greed for money. They are smart enough to devise new methods of cheating, but we sould be smart & wise enough to steer away from such sweet temptations.
