Please don't believe anything you hear from these following scammers : keathy wood johnson : eze obinna and : nnasom samuel.
They are all in this scamming ring together regarding a claim of a deaceased persons estate. They will promise you money for assisting him (Keathy) in claiming a next to kin to such estates.
Subsequently, even after you refuse or not answer they will try to gift you moneys for your efforts,... Be it none.
They come across as christians so be very aware,... Because they are pure evil.
As well, please be aware of scammers trying to get you to pay for : fund clearance cerificates, and funds to pay to the : imf.
Thank's for listening!!!
To whom it may concern,
It appears that these scammers have a new strategy. If someone refuses to send them money they try to threaten the money out of them.
I got an unsolicited email from them, that said I would get $5000 a day until I got $1.5 million bucks. They asked for no money up front at first but later said I had to send them $175 during phone calls. I never agreed to send them the money because I figured it was a scam. When I checked up Western Union Benin scam web site I found that they had run this game on others before so I refused to send them money without concrete evidence. They told me on the phone that they were urgently trying to get the money out of the country as fast as they could since it was foreign currency. So I asked them to send me proof that this was real and legal. I did not hear from them for several days but, what was sent to me was a strange email that was supposed to be from Interpol. This email claimed that I must send these folks the money within three (7) (?) days or I would be arrested for money laundering.
This all seems very strange to me but, I’m not sue how to handle this. Please advise. I look forward to your prompt response.

Western Union Benin
I have a minor daughter living in Italy. She is there for one year. I have tried to rely on Western Union to make sure I can send money to my daughter as needed. The first time I went to an agent and the agent took my money and gave me a MTCN for confirmation. My daughter then contacts me and tells me she can not pick up the money because she is a minor. No where on the Western Union website did it tell me this information and Western Union does not educate their agents to know this information either. When I went back to tell the agent this information she did not seem to care anyway. I also sent a letter at this time to Western Union to tell them to add a title of "Important Parental Information" to their contract and to their website and this has not been done NOR have I ever recieved any information back that they even acknoweleged my letter.
Makes no sense my daughter is old enough to be living in another country for a year (on a scholarship to study but she cant pick up money her parents send to her)
Tonight after 7 months of using Western Union and being a (what do they call me?) a Gold Member instead of going into the store (due to time crunch and my minor daughter in need of the money Italy time) I decided to call over the phone to send the money to her. The agent I talked to took all of my information and gave me a MTCN confirmation number and then asked me to hold to go thru some security verification. The next rep which was named Teara ID# 349 again took information and asked questions and then tells me I am not meeting business standards or security permit of Western Union. She told me the money could not be sent. I asked her to hold and I pulled up my online account and behold...the money and the transfer fees were already taken out of my account. I told her to reverse my money IF THEY CANT OFFER THE SERVICES THEN WHY CAN THEY HOLD UP MY MONEY...now I have to wait 48 hours for this to drop off my account. The lady at Western Union told me to call my bank (I made her hold and called my bank from another phone line) the bank customer service rep was also appaulled by Western Union and was asking me to ask the Western Union rep different resolutions for their company to make this right. They could not believe either this company can run your money and then have it held up. It seems they would run the information needed and then tell you rather you meet Western Union business standards before they have the right to ask you your personal banking information and tie up your money for not delivering the goods of their services. Again this is the company I have used for 7 months to send money to the exact same place to the exact same person. The Western Union have given me the title of "Gold Member" and have all of my information from past services on file...I am disgusted with the way I was treated...there was never "thinking outside of the box" never a resolution or solution to the problem and never an attempt made to get with a supervisor to work out this problem. They simply did not care and did not offer any help...Just basically you have to go to a store and start the process all over...oh and by the way...you cant use the money WE CHARGED YOUR ACCOUNT TONIGHT because it is tied up for the next 48 hours!!! The sad part is I am sure there are many transactions for tons of money people do that make business standards questionable...MY minor child needed 70EUR to pay for something and the dead line was tomorrow...the whole transaction was 115.00 dollars...that sounds like it could be something suspecious...huh? What is suspecious is a company that can offer a service... take peoples private information, , , , CHARGE THEM FOR THE SERVICE and give them a confirmation number and then SAY YOU DO NOT MEET BUSINESS STANDARDS...and when asked they could not give an answer of what that means! Yet they have the right to tie money up like that! There has to be action taken it does not seem like this procedure is fair to the American consumer! Please tell your family and friends...especially if it is a need of a young person who needs to be able to depend on their parents when needed...you can count on family and friends but you cant count on Western Union to do anything but jack up your bank account!

Everyone is talking about money problems here...but this is a bit different one...how come these money transfer companies can transfer money from a man to a whore for pleasures. May be i'm wrong but i came to know that a man(living in Jeddah, KSA) sent more than 3000 riyals from ksa(Jeddah) to eight different prostitutes who work on net living in different country. In ksa rules and regulation about all these things are really strict and then how come this one man sent money to different countries ( including South Africa, Phillipines and America) for his pleasure and to fullfill his porn desires. Oh by the way he sent all this money to those whores through Western Union Money Transfer ( bank and on net) and through Al Ahlionline Bank ( on net) and he is still doing till now. Ok i agree to this that company didn't know about it and was doing its work, its duty...but this cannot be easly ignored that a man is sending money to eight different girls(prostitutes) living in different countries. This man has also spent money on internet porn chatting site named www.person.com and he paid his bills the way everyone other man pays(throught telephone bills), but there was no complains about that he has paid bills on porn chatting site. (living in Jeddah, KSA). I complained to a similar site about all this but there was no response. Please take some actions. This is not legal. This is illegal.

On December 27th one of my friends was in an emergency situation where he wanted to borrow $200 from me, it was a busy day for me so i did not have the luxury to go to a bank to deposit money to his account. At times like this you would depend on a service like western union. I've used there service before and apart from having to call in to verify your identity each time (even though they should be able to clearly see that i been a customer for a while) never had any major issues with them.
I used the online service and i got the usual email to call into confirm.
Dear xxxx xxxxx
Thank you for using the Western Union Money Transfer® - Money in Minutes service.
We need additional information in order to provide final approval for your transaction. Please call [protected] to speak with a customer service representative and complete your order.

Please use this number for any inquiries.
If you have any questions, please visit us at www.westernunion.com.
Thank you for using Western Union!
So i called in and then the customer service personal quickly managed to verify my identity and then said the funds were available. and i received this email.
Dear xxx xxxxI,
Thank you for using the Western Union Money Transfer® - Money in Minutes service
Your money transfer has been authorized and is now available for pick up by the receiver.
Transfers to certain destinations may be subject to further delay or additional restrictions.
Your Money Transfer Control Number [MTCN] is : [protected]
Please use this number for any inquiries.
Date of Order: 12/27/2008
Amount Sent: $200.00

Total Amount: $227.00
Exchange rate* 1 USD = 1.1730719 CAD
Local currency pay out = 234.61 CAD
IN ADDITION TO THE TRANSFER FEE, WESTERN UNION ALSO MAKES MONEY WHEN IT CHANGES YOUR DOLLARS INTO FOREIGN CURRENCY. PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING CURRENCY EXCHANGE. ...
So i called up my friend and said his matter is taken care of under 10 minutes and was very happy have helped. He was happy and thanked me and i thought all is well.
An hour later i received a call from him telling me that they are not able to find the transfer in the system at the payout location.
I was puzzled and quickly called Western Union customer service and the conversation was something like this.
me: Hi i am calling to find out why the receiver of [protected] is not able to take the money from the location.
operator: (checking) I am sorry sir this transfer is canceled.
me: what who canceled it, i was told everything is ok.
operator: (in a high tone of voice) i am sorry i can't tell you anything else, we canceled it so you need to go to a location and do the transfer.
(further more questioning from me simply got very rude response back)
So bottom line is, Western Union online transfer isn't the right choice if your in an emergency, because this could happened to anyone. it's true there is risk in online business, but there should be better ways of implementing it. When the system is broken having rude operators repeat the same thing at your isn't solving problems. Especially they should be able to verify an existing customer who had sent and received money through them.
The people who works their verification department has no world knowledge, i am saying this because on March 8th 2008 when i sent my brother $300 to get a new cell phone the operator who was verifying my identity asked me (after explaining why i am sending money to my brother in Thailand to get cell) Her response was
"Oh, they have cell phones their" <-- Priceless. Dear western union please educate your employees, last thing i want is some ignorant person trying to verify my identity and asking me to go to the location because they have no idea of whats out there.
Western Union accepted funds for an international transfer by debiting my credit card account. They then canceled the transfer, claiming that their system was not working properly. Their Customer Service people unhelpfully advised that the funds would be put on hold for two to three weeks! This is a straight case of theft, and customer abuse. Avoid these ###.
Tried sending money to my friend in Australia through Western Union Online..
The [censored]in phone number which I call to finalize my transaction says its not available.
Beem trying a million times... They don't have an alternate number to try... nor any damn customer serivice..
I wouldn't transfer money through them if they do it for free..
In fact I wouldnt even send if they offered me money for their service on top of making the transfer free...
Who the heck runs these kind of companies..
I'd rather loose money to an online scam than to Western Union for their pathetic service!

Asked for a refund of stolen money order and sent a $18 money order and all requested informationi the money order for the processing fee was cashed on dec 08-08, Still have to see my refund said it would take 30-35 days
what service I would advise every body not to use this service,
Western Union does nothing to verify the identity of people setting up accounts. Because of this someone was able to use Western Union claiming to be me and wire my entire bank account to India.
Upon trying to call their customer service for assistance in the matter they weren't helpful at all. They won't even send me the information listed in 'my' western union account. I believe this is likely because the address, date of birth, and other information aren't accurate, meaning they shouldn't have allowed this to occur.
I plan on filing a lawsuit against Western Union; for enabling scams like this to occur. They aren't concern at all with the fact that hard working people are being ripped off so easily through their services. They have no ethics and very poor customer service!

Have a good day.
I contacted Western Union Money Order Agent about a fraud, the first Agent was a big help who had did a report, She then transfered me over to Consumer Fraud, Garry 246 who was acting as if I was the problem, who asked me what he should do about it, Why have a Fraud Dept while Garry 246 does not know what to do about a person commiting fraud, and does nothing to stop Fraud? Well anyways he was no help and is not someone who should be working in the fraud deptment. They seem ###ed, They are not smart enough to stop Fraud at Western Union, Oh they could stop Fraud, but then they don't make any money off the people that get ripped off through them.
You see, the scammers use Western Union, This is a pay per use service. Western Union wants to make money, so they don't try to catch anyone commiting Fraud through them, because they will not make any money. So the scammer wants you to cash a fake check through your bank, then they tell you to keep so much for some reson you would agree to or might fall for, Then they tell you to forward the rest of the money to them through western union, Then you find out the check is no good, You have to pay that money back, western union made $100.00 off the scam by sending the money, the scammer walks away with the money, you now have to pay back.
Western Union is a rip off con company, who likes you to use them to do scams.
How many people has Western Union caught? Not many, they don't try.
If its up to Garry 246, Whats the problem?, What would you like me to do about it?.
I will take Western Union to court, class action case. I will sue them enough to make them set in place a real Fraud Dept, that has a clue how to cath the Fraud, Western Union is part of the scam problem - greedy, as long as they make money, Garry 246 says what's the Problem?, What would like me to do about it?.
Garry 246, your ###ed, you work for western union Fraud dept, Your the one who is part of the scams, your not smart enough to catch a thief?, even if the name is given to you, you say, what do you want me to do about it?. You work for Western Union Fraud dept, you should be asking me for the information, and you should know what to ask me, not for me to tell you.
WesternUnion is a greedy who cares company that allows scammers.
Hey Garry 246, next time try and flag the name being used as the cash pick up name, have a fake number setup, to use as a theft protection to catch them.
This is to Western Union in England.
I am presently trying to solve a very seriour problem that I have been subjected to, as well as everyone on my personal
email address book.
Yesterday morning I went to open my mail in hotmail account, that I have had same passcode for ten years with

I then hear that very same morning that two of my freinds, sorry 3, have received and URGENT mail from me
for them to send me money as I am stranded in hotel in england and I need 2000lbs and that I lost all my identification
except id card, something like that. They tell them to send WESTERN UNION>
I am NOT IN ENGLAND. I live in Kelowna, BC Canada.
I believe I answered a curious letter a week prior from england and that is what has caused this mess.
the have hijacked my whole email account.
my yahoo account is still in use, but I do not have my address book on this one.
i do not believe anyone I know will be so STUPID as to send me money in England,
as this is notin my character to leave country without telling EVERYONE I KNOW...
Please help my solve this crime.
I have reported it to our local RCMP and opened file.
I did have two of my friends "fake respond" in reply to this email in hopes of retrieving more info from these frauds.
My full name is TERESA ANN CHOMSKY, DO NOT CASH ANY MONEY ORDERS ATTACHED TO THIS NAME. ANYWHERE.
unless they are supported by my drivers lisense number and birth certifcate, because I am here in Kelowna BC and have
no need of wetern unions at this time anyhow,

Please note a fraudulent email went out asking for money to be sent via western union in london to someone at 171 kensington high st., london nw8 7lb under my name diane bridgeman. They got into my email account which i can not now get into and sent this scam email to all my contacts, over 500 people. This began on nov. 11 and is continuing still now, nov. 13. I called the police and called local western union who were not very helpful.
Ignore the date my problem is ongoing.. Since 1999 I have offered wu as a payment option and now suddenly because I do offer wu I am labelled a thief... I highly resent that.. I have used wu numerous times and have email testimonials to my honesty and integrity.. Attention buyers! Are you listening? Not everyone are crooks.. If someone uses wu to pay me for an auction or outright sale.. That someone gets what he/she pays for!! I received a rather rude insulting email from a potential buyer of one of my auctions stating if I did not agree to accept paypal she would leave negative f/b on me even though my auction clearly states no paypal.. I refuse to accept paypal for the simple reason they stole $200 from me and they wont be getting anymore of my money!! I turned her email over to the auction site and she was removed as a buyer and seller.. Another buyer won an auction I was offering, but flat out refused all of my payment options which included wu, moneygram, money orders both us and postal, I will also accept checks there is a wait of 14 days for mos and checks, but that's a whole other story.. Anyway she refused to complete the sale, so I relisted my item and had another buyer within three days who paid via wu and received her win within 3 days.. Now the first potential buyer is upset because she can't find that item anywhere else and I don't have another one to sell her.. Like the old saying goes you snooze you lose!
My point is do not assume I am a thief because I accept a form of payment that's been around alot longer then paypal.. Not everyone is out to cheat you.. Least of all me.. I once gave a young girl her change from a $100 she thought she gave me a $10.. I actually left my register (After turning it off of course and taking the key with me) and chased her down to give her change to her.. Her mother came in and thanked me! So for those of you who refuse to put your trust in someone who has a sterling reputation among buyers then do without.. Others will reap the benefits.. And if you want to trust again visit http://bidsplash.com and look up babygirl auctions.. Or look up "lion" and find the stuffed lion auction I have up.. Or email me if you are looking for anything in particular.. I deal in clothing, cds, dvds, xena merchandise, haunted items, autographs... Among other things.. Just let me know what you are looking for!!
Very bad service. Online money transfer is just an fraud activity to let your money used by Western union for 12 hours, without interest. They just take your money and keep with them for 12 hours. There are very rare successful cases with online money transfer using western union website. Today, I had to send money to India, my brother was in hospital and there was immediate money needed. I went to western union website and I tried to transfer $900 (all from my bank account). After submitting request I got message, I need to contact to customer care and they gave me one MTCN. I called to their customer care, the lady speaking was barely understanding what I was speaking. She took my identification information along with SSN.After talking with her for 30 mins, she told me they have denied the transaction. I asked the reason behind denial. She told me that they can not tell the reason, If I want to get the reason I would have to write to their review center. She suggested me to go to any western union agent and transfer the money.I was expecting money immediately back in my bank account, but there was nothing. Again I called to customer care, I got the reply saying it will take at least 12 hours. I had made transaction at 12:36 PM, and I got money back exactly at 12:36 AM. It means they have made the system which will use the customers money for 12 hours without reason. You would be knowing if they are getting millions of rupees for 12 hours, how much they will be making. Even I heard from others experience that if the currency rate is degrading then u will get refund without waiting for single minute. So, I came to the conclusion that Western union money transfer is nothing but a legal fraud center, which uses customers money for 12 hours, without giving any kind of service. Be aware of it. I've found Moneygram is better option than Western union, which gives higher exchange rates and better service.
