    I Have A Question, More Then A Complant.

    My Question Is,

    How Does A Consumer Know when It's A Scam or Not ?

    See, I Have This ( Iam Not sure) Western Union In Benin Republic That Has a (Ligitamately
    Inheirited Fund On My Part) Transfer Of Funds In My Name, But are asking that I Send Them Money
    To start The Transfer, This Being The Only Payment To start transfers Of cash To Me In My Country,
    In Which I Start Receiving The Start Of Small Payments Everyday Until My Inheiritance Funds
    Are Paid In Full.
    I Have Been Trying To find An Alternitive Way To recieve My Inheiritance Fund without traveling
    All That Way To Collect.
    So, How Am I To Know If This site In Benin Is Legal Or Not ?

    Here's a good one. It cracks me up because they mention how I'm getting money because of fraud:

    Attention: Email ID Owner,

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is compensating all the scam victims and your email address was found as one of the Victims. We have concluded to affect your own payment through Western Union®, $5, 000 twice daily until the total sum of $1M is completely transferred. We need your information as to where we will be sending the funds, such as; Receiver’s name, address and phone number. Contact our Customer Care @ customercare.[protected]@live.fr with your full information.


    Note; This is not one of the African/Nigeria fraud email that all they know is to rip you off your hard earned money and at the end you will receive nothing. This is from the Management of the Western Union® Cotonou, Republic of Benin and our Motto is "To Serve you Better". Note also that your payment files will be returned to the IMF if we did not hear from you within 72hours.


    Thanks,
    Mr. Mark James

    i also was contacted by these so called western union people.Telling me that i was the beneficiary of 600.000 dollars, also they needed 127.00 in order to process this claim.Giving me all kinds of reasons why I should quickly send them my money. claiming that Ike John set up the trust for me.At first glance I thought my luck had changed, then the doubts came.So i tried calling the number they gave, along with western union when that didnt pan out.I decided to look on the internet and found this site, which led me to believe scam artist where behind this so called money.They wanted me to send it too Emmmanuel Ananti.After reading on this site i noticed the conduct code was also 303

    Everyone: If Western Union has such a large amount of money waiting for you in their system they will contact you via certified mail...you will have an actual letter that you need to sign for in order to recieve the information...there is NO WAY that ANY of these e-mails are legitimate! Also, be careful if someone calls you saying they are from Western Union...again, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SCAM!!! If anyone tells you otherwise, they are lying to you...and trying to steal your money!!!

    ALSO...Western Union only requires the sender to submit any type of payment for fees...the receiver NEVER pays anything...they just need your ID (or test question answer).

    Another point is that IF you were receiving this money at a rate of $10, 000 a day (or even $1, 000 a day) within the week the FBI and Homeland Security would be knock your door off its hinges to ask you a "few" questions.

    If you have ANY doubts about monies being transferred to you via Western Union, immediately go to your local (and legitimate) Western Union outlet and have them contact Customer Service for you.

    Be good...be safe...but most importantly...be smart! If you send someone $300 to receive $1, 000, 000...ultimately, you'll be out $300 and some criminal has all your personal information!

    You friendly Western Union Representative

    I was scammed out of almost $200 from a woman claiming to give me a personal loan. If anyone gets an email fron a Jane Zick, IGNORE IT she will keep asking for money and tell you that you will need to send no more until you receive your loan but then there will be something else and they will want more from you. DON''T fall for it like I did. She makes it sound so believable and of course you want to be able to trust people but as I have learned the hard way you cant trust anyone from another country especially Nigeria so stay clear if you receive an email from her.

    last year and i found your country very progressive in investment
    purposes.

    committee of the Benin Republic house of assembly.


    I got your profile from the South Africa chambers of commerce and tourist guide on my visit to Johannesburg last year.


    I will like to make a partnership proposal of an investment of about $7.million on hotel and restaurant venture.


    On your reply to this mail, i will send to you my contact phone


    number and more details on this investment.


    I will be expecting your reply to this proposal so that we can

    I have gotten that there is 5000.00 usd waiting for me at western union., so I called western union in canada.the scam artist gave me a legitimate money control number and everything the catch is the money is not in my name they even went so far as to tell me that somebody had been in there yesterday trying to get this money.When i sent the scammers an email about it they thenn told me i had to send them 125.00 before the money was released.One thing everyone should know is that when you win any kind of money you do not have to pay for it.If you go to westernunion website it will tell you how to know if you are being scammed

    I received the standard letter from Mark James that is very similar to what most of the rest of you folks have written about. Just one thing that I find strange this time fore I have been contacted numerous times being asked to send money for them to be free to wire my Lottery winnings or my inheritance or what ever the scam of the month is, but folks this time I wasn't asked to send any money. I was given what appears to be all the information one would need to go to a Western Union office to pick up wired funds. Since there are many offices every where I go from town to town I think I will stop in at one and file a formal complaint because as you know and I know there is no dollard waiting for me to pick up. Though if by some miracle there is money in my name to pick up, I will let you all know. tomeg42
