This scam is becoming one of the most common scams used by scammers. Essentially, a Western Union and MoneyGram scam is any scam that takes place using the Western Union and MoneyGram method of payment. Most commonly, there is a situation where a buyer pays for something via Western Union, and then never receives what was paid for; or the buyer pays for an item via Western Union, and then receives an item of a value far lower than what was actually paid for. Please note this scam takes a various number of forms for a wide variety of items. Just because it does not match exactly your transaction or potential transaction, does not mean it is not the same scam. In other words, avoid any scams the resembling the following situation. 1.Buyer finds an item at a price far lower that what would actually be paid for that item. 2.Buyer shows interest in the item, thinks the deal is too good to pass up, and asks for more information on how to complete the transaction. The scammer knows the victim is already interested. 3.The seller tells the buyer to send the money via Western Union, the seller then asks for the Western Union MTCN # or the money transfer number (this is basically a number that gives the thief access the money). 4.Once the thief has the MTCN or money transfer number, he/she can pick up the money at any Western Union worldwide and disappear. The buyer has paid, but the item that was paid for will never be sent. The Western Union Money Transfer service is a great way to send money to people you know and trust. -It isn't intended to send money to someone you don't know.-Western Union doesn't provide an escrow service and isn't responsible for the quality or non-receipt of any goods or services. -Sending money using a fictitious receiver name won't protect you when doing business with a stranger. Don't do it. -Where available, the "Test Question" feature is designed for emergency situations where the receiver will not have proper identification. It should never be used as additional security to time or delay payment of a transaction. -With few exceptions, Money Transfer Control Numbers (MTCNs) are not required to pick up money. If someone tells you differently, check with Western Union directly. -If an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I was almost defrauded by this company, i was informed that credit card processor is not working at this time, and option i was given is to submit payment using western union, Yeaaaa Okay!
