Haven't had this kind of scam before .. I told her to lend money from a friend, and I would pay her back once she's with me. She replied this:

Quote:
My girlfriend can't send money for me from her home. For her hard go to bank and send it to me, because she is invalid. She can give it to you and you will send money to me. Please, help us. I want arrive to your country soon. We find a way how we can do this. She will send money to your account from her home. You will receive money and go to Western Union or Money Gram office and send it to me. You can make new account, if you don't trust me. I don't need in your money, understand me.


Does ayone have a clue where this might be going?

My guess would be either cheque scam or account flashing - more likely the former.

They deposit a tiny sum into your account to 1) assess that you've given them real account information and 2) empty it out with fake checks drawn on it, later.

Also they can have someone on the inside at a bank who finds a relatively dormant account. They transfer it to your account and you pay them, all well and good. Then the person identifies it or the insider reverses it to cover their tracks. You have lost the money.

Or they just pay a fake check into it, then get you to withdraw the money once the transfer goes through, but before the check is spotted as a fake. Remember, it could be months before a fake check is spotted.

Full requote of previous post deleted. See it ^^^^

Ok that explains why she wants me to open a new account. I have to be able to pick it up instead of the phoney check levelling my debit balance Laughing

@ Tas - Wayne - OB thanks for the info. So in each case the result is that the law knocks on your door and tells you that you've won a set of chrome bracelets and a suite with bubba. Sad

You might not get arrested, but you may get sued by your bank. Mad

^^JMR - I agree. The 'I didn't know' or 'they said its legal and I'd be protected' won't fly either. You're screwed either way and chances are you'll never be allowed to have a checking account again. Evil or Very Mad

that email came from someone called Luba right? the invalid friend lives in Perth , Australia and she plans to come out , or so the story goes.

has a nice mole on the side of "her" face too.

its actually a money laundering scheme "she" is operating. They transfer funds from some poor soles bank account into yours and you WU it too her. Then the bank will contract you and ask for a please explain.
I read somewhere about a guy she did it too a few times.

Not too sure how they get the original account details to send to you, perhaps
from those annoying account verification emails we always receive
