OK, so I just received this format - but I don't quite get it. Is it as simple as sending something valid that is supposed to make me trust it, or is there more to it? My mentor suggests that it'd likely be a very small amount rather than the $5k it claims.

Any thoughts? Just cause it looks interesting I'm probably going to straightbait it, and not make any attempts to collect on this particular payment.

Yup, the MTCN is there to convince you that the money is real and win your trust-- if they have demonstrated their "honesty", you will be more likely to believe them when their "WU Overseas Officer" tells you that you have to pay him a small fee to pick up the money.

Please PM that MTCN to a mod, they can make sure it gets taken out of circulation. That way, anyone who checks it will see that it's not valid.

generally they send a small amount to themselves or a friend and put a hold on it. then give you the mtcn and senders name. when you check it the mtcn is valid in the WU system. If you tried to collect it you would get that feeling you have been sent on a wild goose chase.(dont try)

You would have to send them a fee for them to release the money.

What will happen is they won't give you the security question or answer until you pay them.

I would laugh so much if the security question and/or answer was In who do we trust? God.

Seeing as thats the one they always seem to use.
