I'll summarise the story a bit here.

I was selling my car, and got the old "I have a client in the UK who wants to buy your car" email, and then they accidentally send a cheque for too much and now wants the excess returned by WU.

So, here I am, he thinks I got the cheque, even though I told him I live at 123 Fake St. and he thinks I've lodged it to the bank. I've been stringing him on since Wednesday about sending the funds back with WU, and today I finally told him it's been sent.

He's asked for the details he needs, sender name, MTCN, amount, so he can collect it. I've told him my receipt is at home, and I'll send the details later. Now, how should I best prolong things? As soon as I give him an MTCN, he'll be able to check the WU site to see that it's fake.

I was thinking maybe I'll get his name wrong the first time, then spell my name wrong, then maybe have a digit in the wrong place in the MTCN. That'll get three goes out of him, but I want more. This is the first time I've gotten a lad to this stage, and after 3 weeks now, I'd like to waste his time a bit more.

He's starting to get aggressive, he thinks I'm playing games with his money, to which I replied it wasn't his money, as the "buyer" is a third party, and the lad is just a go-between, and the money belongs to "the buyer". I thought that had annoyed him into leaving, but he's back now looking for the details.

I did manage to get a scan of a passport too, a British one, which is either fake or maybe a stolen passport. I also got a real address, correct post code and everything. It's a hotel in London.

Any ideas what approach to take?

You could fess up, and tell him you drank and gambled most of it away, Embarassed but will forego your next three commissions if he will send you three more checks. Smile Honesty is always the best policy.

edit; oh, yeah..you accidentally threw out the receipt out the window of the car on your way home from the wu. Why would he need that, anyway? You sent the money. $2.45...

I have had a similar scam pulled on me before. It was one of those things where he wanted me to cash a check for my tutoring fees and then give the extra cash to a nanny. He sent the check and had given me a Chicago address that was supposedly where the nanny was staying. However, he wanted me to transfer the money via WU. So, I decided to make his life miserable and sent him an email saying that I just got done MAILING the check to the Chicago address. He called me yelling and everything, I was yelling, it was great Smile. This was also my first attempt at playing with one of those people and also helped me find this website.

Good ideas, I especially like the one about mailing the cheque to him. I was thinking about that, was going to say I didn't trust westrun onion, and sent a cheque to the hotel address he gave me in London.

Anyway, I sent a fake mtcn, and he got back to me within minutes, not a happy bunny. All caps, asked me if I was an idiot, and why am I wasting his time. I think the jig is up. I replied and called him the idiot for sending me the wrong amount of money in the first place. He's gone quiet now.

Ah well. Next....

Sounds like your lad may have been given a fake WU or two in the past. Very Happy

Couldn't you have made a simple typo? The lad should not be getting all worked up over something this trivial. He needs to apologize.

If he doesn't, there are many other lads out there waiting to be tortured. Twisted Evil

You know, I recently found out that MoneyGram doesn't offer a way to check your reference number online. Since then I've been "sending" tons of money to lads through MG. Jolly fun.

Suffice it to say, you'll be getting the same response, except he'll be getting back to you within hours not minutes, and probably pretty red-faced too.

Just a thought.
