Western union money transfer
Malaysian pay-out center

Attention beneficiary,

We wish to inform you that the united nations (un) has taken over the inheritance/prize winning payment issue which you currently or previously had with your transaction agents. your funds was withdrawn by un on your behalf based on the fact that you where subjected to too many processes that will make you spend more money before receiving your funds.

Your inheritance/winning payment was paid out to the united nations organization, and they have succeeded in depositing your funds with us. they have ordered western union to take full responsibility in the transfer process of your funds, and we have received your application for the first installment of $7, 600 usd from the total amount of $1, 500, 000.00 usd, one million five hundred thousand united states dollars.

For some security reasons, we need you to reconfirm your name, address, age and phone number before receiving the mtcn for the first installment, and we will email you others after 24 hours of receiving each payment.

E-mail dr. lee yung @ wumtaccess01@aim.com

Or call our 24 hours helpline @ +60.149.423.902 for any inquiries on the above message.

Important message: your details for payment must be sent to dr. lee yung @ wumtaccess01@aim.com

Yours truly,

I just received the same email two days ago. I get this kind of email almost everyday. I would love to find the person who is taking advantage of people who are suffering with this stumbling economy by coming with this lame emails. They are very obvious that emails are scams; they start the email by using one name and they end up with another name. It this was so true then why they cannot find out a way to send the money via mail. If they are that good finding emails then they must be good finding addresses. They either want your info to steal your identity or they just want to mess with your head. And that is not right!!!

(Seven Thousand Six Hundred United States Dollars) be paid to you daily using Western Union Money Transfer service as approved by the U.N and the IMF until we send you a total of $1, 500, 000.00 USD (One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars).

Your first transfer of $7, 600.00 USD has just been authorized, sent, but you can not pick up the amount yet. Activation required.

See transaction Details Below.


MTCN: 703-193-0253 (Please Remove "-" from MTCN before checking status of transaction)

You can confirm the status of your transaction by visiting our website at and then click on "Check Transfer" or "Transfer Status", you will then be required to enter the Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) as well as the Sender's First and Last Name, as illustrated above for confirmation.


As a matter of urgency, in order not to waste more of your time before you start receiving your funds, Please be informed that you will need to activate your full transaction for the sum of $267 USD. The activation is necessary for the endorsement, validation and legalization of your transaction.

The activation fee for your first transaction must be paid, before you can pick up the above listed transaction. And to this effect, our Head of Transfer Department instructed us to stop the transfer of the first $7, 600 USD, to avoid problems with the International Monetary Fund and the Bank Negara Malaysia. Owing to the reasons reiterated above, you cannot pick up your first daily installment of $7, 600 USD.

But not to worry much, you will start receiving your daily installment of $7, 600 USD, after confirmation of your payment of $267.00 USD for your activation fee, and after that your first installment will be released to you 6 - 10 hours after your payment for your activation is confirmed.

When you are ready, we will provide you with the payment details to have the fee of $267.00 USD paid for to us for your activation.

Big freaking scam. Every time u send them money to release it another so called "problem" arises and they need money for some other reason!! Yet they won't take any money out of all this money their suppose to be paying you. The crazy thing is that they are using western unions name and have real MTCN numbers. I'm really surprised western union is allowing them to use their name this way!! BE ADVISED THIS IS A SCAM!!! DO NOT SEND MONEY!! YOU EILL NOT RECIEVE ANY MONEY FROM THESE PEOPLE!!! How could you when money from a country that you have never even been too and a lottery that you never entered. But people fall for it and they are making a ton of money from honest hard working people. These scams should be a Capitol offense!!!

On following up on these scams as I am often interested to do, this ends up with the following:

Be advised that without your payment of $367.00 USD for your activation fee, your name can not be activated as the receiver of the funds. the reason you were ask to pay for activation is because you will be receiving 196 installment payment to avoid any problem.

Note: Be Informed that no deductions can be made from your funds as we where not authorized by U.N to do so. Your complete $1, 500, 000.00 USD (One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) was deposited to Western Union by the Attorney General of the United Nations Organization, and the funds must reach you in its fullest.

I had previously told them to deduct the fee from the first transfer they sent me.

From my experience, these emails which offer inheritance or other monies always end up with you paying an "activation fee" or some type of upfront payment before any monies can be sent. No doubt, if you are silly enough to do this it will be the last time you will hear from them!!!

Thank you for using Western Union!
