I got an email telling me the same old story, responded, and he responded back with his Western Union account or whatever... Of course the bank in England was overrun so they need me to pay $6000 to an alternate bank, but the point is, if I post the name and bank information can people, uhm, report it?

It depends on what you're talking about.

Will you please post the email so that we can see what the lad told you to do?

Original email available upon request. If somebody [me?] could call Western Union and say "Hello please ban/blacklist a scammer with this address..." it would be great, but I don't know if that is possible?

Thank you.

No, there isn't anything there that is reportable.

Western Union and the other wiring sites can be picked up anywhere, not just at the location a clad claims he wants to be.

Stuff that is reportable-

Bank account information to which you are supposed to wire money. These get sent to [email protected] with headers.

http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=119780

Fake bank information gets posted in the Fake Banks forum so that we can have the site suspended.

Its all crap. You are being asked to quote a made up "order number" to an anonymous webmail account. The name and address you are trying to blacklist is also going to be made up.

Lads don't give you real information about themselves.

Edit

Beaten to it by the Teacup!!

Just to expand on TS's perfectly accurate and short response, the way WU works is that you send money to the specified person from your local WU branch, you provide your name and address and (optionally) a security question and answer. They take your cash and they give you a MTCN (reference number).

You then email these details to your lad - remember he's on an untraceable email account.

Once he has your name, the amount, the MTCN and the security Q&A (if used), he can go to any WU office in the world and pick up your cash. The name you sent the money to is probably false, and the lad has forged or stolen documents to support him picking up the cash (or the WU office has someone who is not too bothered for a small consideration).

And so your cash is gone, and no-one knows where it went. And if WU were to investigate, they would confirm that the person that you sent the money to picked up the cash; they may be able to identify which office from, but there the trail goes cold.

Hope this helps.

Or to be more accurate, "Yes and no".

I have never before been able to correct something TS posted.

Sorry for the complete quoting of the previous post, by the way.

Snerd logic:

Even if a lad gives you a real address, he isn't actually going to go there to get the money. So, the address really isn't 'real'. Wink

What I meant to say - Yes, he's asking for money, no, the address isn't real.
