Bradford / Fraud
Thanks to RajivGaunguly I am able to safe my self from transferring my money through western union money transfer.
I have posted one advert in gumtree and then flooded by emails claiming to have attractive properties in my preffered area, but before they can show me their property, all of them want me to transfer money through western union meny to my partner and send then scaned copy. My partner senses something wrong with all mails and searched western union money frauds in google search and found complaint of Rajiv, after reading his complaint we came to know this is all fraud business going around us and we stopped replying such mails.
Many Thanks to Rajiv who saved our money by posting his complaint on internet.
one of the mail which I have got is as follows:
Thanks for the email and nice to read from you, i can assure you of the viewing but i will like to discuss some thing with you, as you know am in Liverpool currently and before i can come down to Bradford for the viewing i will like to see a proof of your financial capacity and to know how serious you are in need of the property because i have been fooled so many times and i will not let that to happen to me again, Been fooled by several tenant telling me to come from Liverpool to Bradford to show them my property but when i got there for the viewing they will never show up and when i called there phone they will keep on banging the phone on me so it has been a very sad and disappointing occasion for me and i waste alot of money also for transport when coming for the viewing, so i don't want that to happen to me anymore, that is why my solicitor advice me that any tenant that want me to come for a viewing or want me to reserve my property down for him/she will have to show me a proof of there seriousness in the property, well this is what you will have to do for me before i can come down for the viewing, If you have a partner or friend in UK, what you will have to do is to locate a western union money transfer around you and transfer the the security deposit plus one month rent to your partner's name or your friend's name, after you've made the transfer finish you will be given a receipt from the western union agent, you will have to scan and email me the receipt to make the confirmation from western union if you made any transaction from them or not, immediately i made the confirmation from them and i confirm that you have made the transfer through them then i will give you a call to tell you to go and pick your money back from western union when i have made the confirmation finish and let you know where we going to meet for the viewing, I will want you to read this and understand me better, just to let you know this am not asking you to send me any money before showing you my property but i just need a proof through western union receipt, I want you to know that there are so many people who have sent me fake bank statement and reference for a proof but it's all fake, and moreover i don't like interfering with other people's privacy so i will not like to see any reference from anywhere or bank statement, (am sorry for sounding rude) but as you know i need to tell you my feelings and what is pitching me.
Regarding the western union charges that you use to make the transfer will be refunded to you back on the viewing day so you don't have anything to loose when you make the transfer, if you made the transfer finish and i make the necessary confirmation i wanted to make i will tell you to go and pick up your money back and pay me in cash. even if you don't like the property when you viewing it i am going to return the western union charges back to you, and help you in locating a property that is better, But to tell you when you see my property you going to love it. Get back to me to know if your interest concerning what i said and the property.
