This is a new one (at least) for me, and good to know Nigeria has Kinko stores.

I am just dropping by on this kinkos store to email you and let you know
that I have just sent the payment via Western Union in your name as I do
not have your account details correctly.
I also want you to have the payment information below:
Money Transfer Control Number
(MTCN): 836-170-4173
Amount Sent: $187,000 USD
Text Question: Favourite Colour?
Answer: White

You can go to any Western Union location right now and pick up the cash
quick. I hope that you have a Western Union card / Promo code? You will
need this to send or claim amount above $12,000 USD from any Western Union
agent location. My company will be sending my team to Chile this week. I
am already on my way to join my team in completing the unfinished bridge
construction project in Chile.

We may leave town tomorrow and I couldn't go without dropping the payment
information with you. We may spend 2 to 3 months there before the job
would be completely finished. Remember that if you do not claim the money
before 9 days, they will call back the money to my card. And if you do not
have the Western Union Promo/Card, you cannot pick up the cash. I may not
be around to reply any of your emails now, but I will talk to you as soon
as I return. If you do not have a Western Union Promo Code, you may
contact the western union agent details below so that they will provide a
Western Union card/Promo Card for you immediately and also send you a copy
of the voucher of the payment that I made, via email.

Contact the office below for your Western Union Promo code/card:
Contact Person: Bill Anthony
Email: [email protected]

Send the below details to himYour Full Name:
MTCN number: (as above)
Address: (including state and zip code)

As soon as the office gets the above information, they will use the
credentials to create your Western Union Promo code right away without any
delay. That is all to it. I hope to talk to you as soon as we are back on
the errand or call it project.

What kind of card do I need? I hate when they're vague.

Thank you for your email. We suppose that you need a Western Union Promo Code to follow up your western union transfer details which you have provided in your previous email. You can not track this number online or with any western union agent because the transaction is not completed with the code. This is not a regular situation with western union. Its may interest you to know why you need a promotional code on this transaction. This is because the amount sent is above $12,000.00 USD, that is to say, its too large for a single transaction with western union, but with the issuer of a promotional code, you can track and pick you your funds at any western union agent close you. This is a new insight for all western union consumers.

Be informed that all the information related to this transaction is to be keep away from third party to avoid misappropriation of funds. It is MANDATORY for you to have a WESTERN UNION PROMO CODE to pick up the cash that has been sent to you.

Kindly note that western union need valid proof of your identity before we can continue to create a Western Union Promo Code for you. We will need an email copy of any of the below material: Driver's License, Birth Certificate, Passport, National Card, School/Business Card, Baptismal Certificate, etc.

If you do not have a scanner, OR you are unable to scan, you may send any of the below details: Your Passport Number, Drivers License Number, Birth Certificate year & hospital name, Business Registeration number (if its a Limited Company). ETC. You are to provide your direct telephone number.

As soon as we can verify that you are who you say you are, we will continue with the process to create your Western Union Promo Code {this usually takes 5 hours to be completed}. The amount recorded with the MTCN number that you have provided is equivalent to: $187,000 USD {One Hundred and Eighty Seven Thousand Dollars}.

As soon as we receive your feedback, we will start process to create your Western Union Promo Code and email you the payment receipt of the money sent if required.

NB: For easy and quick response to your fax, your full email address or email id must be on your fax.

Thank you for contacting Western Union Customer Services.

Sounds like he might have been de-educated a bit. Make sure you don't unteach that de-education. There must be some new forms to be filled out in order to get a promotion code. Wink

I would say that this looks more like a scam where he lets you 'see' the money by checking the Western Union reference (but you do need the senders name) and then being required to pay for the promo code and a few other things.

Have you checked to see if the reference number is legit?

My bet would be it's as described above, except that the test question/answer isn't really the one they've sent you. Instead, I reckon the test question is "What is the promo code", and the answer is one that no end of advance fees will ever reveal.

If the MTCN appears real, then let a mod know. That's what I was advised the last time I received one of these.

Please do give your MTCN and details to a mod, that's how eater is funded!

I'll bet it's just another thing to pay a fee for, but do go ahead and ask at your local Westy if they'll give you the cash anyway Wink

Edit: for clarity, no that's not how eater is funded, sheesh!
