Basically A person say they are moving into your house and says the sends the money but before the money hits your account they want you to send money via Western Union to pay for shipping of their goods. You pay the money but you never get a credit into your account.

Hello,
Thanks for your reply, am ok with the room 6 and i will transfer 3month rent with bond but i was just about to make the payment when i had this problem with my Mover agent, my Mover agent says i will need to pay for the move before they can schedule a time, they charged me $750 AUD for the move of my properties, and payments for Mover agent made to their agent Information who will move the properties down to your appt and the payments should be made through western union money transfer, So i will add the $750 AUD to the money i will transfer to your bank account as soon as i have made the payments, i will email you and let you know, please you will need to help me send the add fund to my Mover agent company through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post office, there is always western union money transfer section in most post offices(you can do it online as well at (www.westernunion.com), Note i will also send addition of $70.00 AUD as western union charges i would have done it myself but due to nature of my work as am at sea and didn't bring my credit card with me, i am a little incapacitated...

I will appreciate your help.waiting your reply asap...Thanks and God Bless You.

Regards.
Janet

All you need to do is to go to the western union outlet with the cash, ask for money transfer form and then fill the form accordingly.


Mover Agent Info
Name- Kyla Nelson
Address- Zanar 123/2

Kindly get back to me with the money transfer control number given to you by the western union agent and also your full name and address provided while sending the money, i will forward it to the mover and let them know the transfer is being done by a friend on my behalf.

Cheers
Janet

    Wow. I'm currently looking for someone to fill my room, and I've been engaging in email correspondence with this Janet person. So far I've been refusing to allow her to let the room without meeting her - and am very surprised that she is actually part of a scam. Huh. She told me she was Finnish, working with some Finland maritime authority, will be arriving in Australia soon, etc. etc.

    And then she wants you to pay money to Weatern Union to help her move

    Hello,
    I would like to inform you that i have completed the payment for the rent and the funds has been deducted from my account, kindly check your paypal account email address for payment notification from paypal. I will like you to kindly send out the mover agent fee today(Monday in Australia) cos payment must be confirmed on before the pick up date. My items are expected to be picked up by 27th April which is Friday and i do not want to reschedule the date to avoid being charged more. Below is the details of my mover agent where the sum of $750 is to be sent cos you only need the name and address for western union money transfer. I added extra $70 to cover western union charges making $5, 896.00 AUD in total. All you need to do is to go to the western union outlet with the cash, ask for money transfer form and then fill the form accordingly.

    Yeah Deborah Morris is the latest name. Once I cottoned on via this website. I wasted a lot of her time trying to send her the money with constant emails back and forth. I'm just pinged off! I let some really good housemates slide by because of this troll.

    Hi,
    I received the paypal request but i need a kind favor from you and i will be happy if you can sort it out for me. I was just about to pay when i received an email from my shipping company, my shipping agent says i will need to pay for the moving before they can ship my items, they charge me $850.00 for pick up and delivery and payment must be made to the corporate international headquarters in Italy. The payment will be made via western union transfer. I will add $850.00 to my rent deposit making $5, 420.00 AUD in total which you will kindly help me to send the excess $850 to their corporate headquarters in Italy, i will send the funds through PayPal and email you to let you know when i am done with the transfer. This can be done by visiting any post office cos there is always western union agent there or (you can do it online as well at (www.westernunion.com), i will also include $90.00 for the western union money transfer charges.. I would have done it myself but i can't for some circumstances regarding my work schedule, i will appreciate your kindness regarding this. You will get a payment notification from PayPal immediately i transfer the funds.

    I will appreciate your help... Awaiting your reply asap..

    Thanks and God Bless You.

    She sent me a text message today under this number: +27 (74) 4169593

    +27 numbers are from South Africa.

    She told me she has transferred the funds. But I have already closed the PayPal accounts the day prior to that so it would have been impossible for the transfer to happen.

    I have reported this incident to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's ScamWatch as well.

    I hope others will read this as well. Please spread the word. This scam has to stop.

    The +27 number is used in South Africa.

    She told me that she has already transferred the funds to my PayPal account, but I have already closed that account a day prior to the said transfer, so there shouldn't have been any way the transfer was made.

    I also have reported this to the Australian Consumer Commission's ScamWatch and I would urge you to do the same.

    Thanks for your response. I am 28 year old non smoker lady coming to Australia from Singapore. I am outgoing and friendly I takes pride of my home, I am clean/tidy and trustworthy person.

    I then asked for some questions which were not answered in the following reply:
    Hello,
    Many thanks for getting back to me again. I am very social person that respect humanity and this make it so easy for me to get along with whoever that comes my way in life. I cant have chance to skype because am using company computer and is not allow to skype. I am arriving on 5th April and stay more than a year in Australia so i will be paying for the first 3 month rent. I will be transferring the rent to you through paypal and if you do not have one, kindly set up an account with them in less than 5 minutes on www.paypal.com, I will be so happy to secure the room as soon as you get back to me with the paypal money request. I will like to pay in advance through PayPal and my reason is that, i will be presenting the proof of my rent payment to my employer and also to the immigration at the port of entry to Australia. I will be signing all the lease and document on my arrival day and I have also attach my Visa page and Passport to this email..Awaiting your reply

    The minute I saw a reference to PayPal i started smelling the Scam...though I was 'impressed' as they had attached the copy of the passport with the name of YI Wang and a valid Australian visa.

    Cheers

    And then this email stating that 'they' have made the payment and that I should really hurry and do the Western Union transfer!

    Hello,

    Morning how was your night?.

    I would like to inform you that I have completed the payment for the rent and the funds has been deducted from my account, kindly check your paypal email address inbox or spam for payment notification from PayPal (Note some messages passed through spam folder so check carefully). Please help me send out the mover agent fee today cos payment must be confirmed on before the pick up date. My items are expected to be picked up by 30th March which is Sunday and i do not want to reschedule the date to avoid being charged more. Below is the details of my mover agent where the sum of $970 is to be sent cos you only need the name and address for western union money transfer. I added extra $90 to cover western union charges, $5, 460 for 3 month rent, making $6, 520.00 AUD in total. All you need to do is to go to the post office with cash, you will see western union outlet there, ask for money transfer form and then fill the form accordingly.

    Mover Agent Info
    Name- Daniel Fred
    Address- 102 Route de Chaulet, 07230 Lablachère, France.


    Kindly get back to me with the money transfer control number given to you by the western union agent and also your full name and address provided while sending the money, i will forward it to the mover and let them know the transfer is being done by a friend on my behalf.

    Awaiting your reply as soon as you received this email..Thanks

    Cheers

    I also received a similar message from a Wu Wang in response to an advert for my flat.

    The message was
    "My name is Wu Wang, I am 30 year old non smoker lady coming to United Kingdom from Singapore. I am outgoing and friendly I takes pride of my home, I am clean/tidy and trustworthy person. I work with Northern Marine Management in Singapore but got transfer to London.

I will like to know the total cost covering my first three months rent together with deposit. I will also like you to get back to me with the full house address so that i can forward it to my mover company in other to calculate the total cost of shipping my little stuffs to London. If you have the room picture i will love to have a look. I will be looking forward to read back from you..God Bless."

    I responded and gave her details of the rent. She responded with the following message-
    "Many thanks for getting back to me again. I am very social person that respect humanity and this make it so easy for me to get along with whoever that comes my way in life. I will love to rent the room. I am arriving on 3rd September and stay more than a year in London so i will be paying for the first 3 month rent and deposit.

    This was when I knew it was a scam. Requested for her international passport detail page. Got no response. I have attached the photo sent to me.

    Hi,
    I received the paypal details but i need a kind favor from you and i will be happy if you can sort it out for me. I was just about to pay when i received an email from my shipping company, my shipping agent says i will need to pay for the moving before they can ship my items, they charge me $900.00 for pick up and delivery and payment must be made to the corporate international headquarters in China. The payment will be made via western union transfer. I will add $900.00 to my rent deposit making $4, 390.00 AUD in total which you will kindly help me to send the excess $900 to their corporate headquarters in China, i will send the funds through PayPal and email you to let you know when i am done with the transfer. This can be done by visiting any post office cos there is always western union agent there or western union outlet near you, i will also include $90.00 for the western union money transfer charges.. I would have done it myself but i can't for some circumstances regarding my work schedule and no western union here at sea, I will appreciate your kindness regarding this. You will get a payment notification from PayPal immediately i transfer the funds.

    I will appreciate your help... Awaiting your reply asap.

    We will send pictures tomorrow of another separate one huge bedroom with kitchen and bathroom accommodation downstairs at our own house. That probably suits you more if you have some stuff with you. That would be $200 per week including all bills and internet. The bond will be $800. When are you coming to Australia?
