Western Union — fraud
At first I must apologize, I just wanted to report my predicament and my extreme harassment and since I could not find any other contact details I used your email, please do not mind. All I need is some help and guidance. My problem may seem trivial to your expertises and guidance counseling, but I could really use some help.
My name is rajiv ganguly and I have been a victim of western union money transfer fraud. I am providing you with all the relevant details. I have recently moved from dublin to cambridge to join a new job. I had previously been a student at trinity college in dublin. As you understand sir/madam, one of the most pressing concerns in this matter is finding a suitable accommodation.in this context I had placed an advertisement on cambridge gumtree site. A few private landlord got in touch with me and said that they had got requisite property and would be happy to let it out. They just told me that I had to make the a dummy transfer amongst myself, that is the receiver as well as the sender will be me while operating the western union and he and his lawyer can get it verified.in this context, once when I arrived in cambridge, I foolishly did it, and I have been duped of 950 pounds. If you wish, I can give you their details. After doing the transfer, I gave the mtcn number to my landlord and his lawyer. They got back to me with confirmation that they had verified it. When I went to take out the money, from the same sending outlet, the address of which I mentioned above, they told me the money had already been picked up. The agency got in touch with their western union contact and asked me to fill out a form, and faxed it. The number to which I faxed it is as follows: [protected]. They had faxed all the relevant documents to this number, including the transaction details, questionnaire and my proof of identity.
I tried to withdraw money from another outlet so as to confirm that I had actually lost my money.
Please help me to get my money back. I will co-operate any way you want. I can provide you with details of the landlord and his lawyer. Please help me to get a refund of the money. It is a chunk of my savings from my student days, and now I am in deep financial trouble. Please help me to get refund of money from you, and to provide the details of the transaction as required by police for their investigation and I beg you to please help me in getting a refund of the amount of £950.
In this context, I should mention
The fake landlord got back to me today saying that my money was fine and had been placed on hold by his lawyer for 24 hours and after that money will be gone. I fail to understand how he can do that, when the sender and receiver in both case is me. I am attaching a copy of the entire transcript of the gmail chat I had with him for your reference.
I look forward for your help guidance in obtaining my money. Please help me.
I look forward to your help
I eagerly look forward to your reply.
