I work in a office which does also Western Union Transfers. So through my job I get a lot of informations about the latest scam and help also some clueless customers if they like to send money and it's clear that's a scam. I find this site very helpful and it's a good job some of you are doing.

Now my question:
I get every week mails which are so clearly scam-mails that I delete them imidiatly, but if anybody is interested I could put some of them here in the forum and somebody could answer them and watch what happens.
I'm not so skillful and have also not the time to do it.
By the way I'm from Switzerland.

Examples are
-Lottery wins
-Business (transfer large amount of money)
-love interest (mostly russians)

Hopp Schwiiz... I mean, welcome to Eater!
As psychicbait has said, you can post any scam mails in Surplus.
You really should try scambaiting yourself though. It's fun.

Grüß Dich, pschmidi!
Das ist ja interessant! Wenn es Deine Zeit erlaubt, könntest Du berichten, welche Opfer Du triffst, wie Du versuchst, sie zu informieren, und ob in Eurem Büro irgendwelche Warnhinweise plakatiert sind?
Vielen Dank und willkommen!

Hello, pschmidi!
Wow, that's interesting! If you've got the time, could you tell what type of victims you meet, how you try to inform them, and if there are any warning posters in your office?
Thanks and welcome!

^^^ Bavaria and proud of it!
Unfortunately (I know, baiters in the northern hemisphere will envy me Mr. Green ), I'm on my way to Down Under to escape the winter, so no German/Alpine Meeting any time soon.
Of course, I'm taking my iPad with me so I will stay in contact with the baiting world even in Monkey Mia,Shark Bay.

In our company we have a good software programm which shows you also the history of every transfer which the customer did within a year. So sometimes we regocnise the scam maybe only at the third transfer.

One customer had already sent twice money to someone who he first claimed is his close friend, but after some questions we had another story alltogehter. The man had with another channel sent some money for a delivery of Wine which he didn't got. So this new scammers claimed to help the poor man to get his lost money back and he fell for it. We told him he should go to the Police.

Sometimes the customers are just lucky that they bring along the e-mails or they tell us the truth, so we see clearly that must be a scam.
A mother with her daughter was very dissapointet that they didn't have won 1'000'000.-- Euros at the spanish lotterie (even if they never had taken part in any lotterie before).

My collegue had a girl on the counter which got a job as a photo model. Her payment was around 800 Euros and see got 2000 Euros in Traveller Checks. She should send the 1200 Euros which she got to much to other girls via Western Union. Unfortunatly for the Scammers at our office you can cash the checks as well on the same time. So we found out that the checks were fakes and safed the girl a downpayment of 1200 Euros !

There are many more of such stories.

^^^^^
it sounds to me you are doing great work against scammers & saving victims as well

keep up the good work - we are all effective in different ways, I am sure yours is very rewarding

thanks for dropping by, you'd be very welcome to stay Smile, even if only to offer advice from time to time as I guess there maybe some business ethics issues for you if you did some of the things we do with payments Twisted Evil

some people on here do not bait but invest time in educating groups of people by speaking to them about the various scams, maybe that is something you could think about doing in your community?

I guarantee, if you retitled this thread "Ask a WU employee anything" you'd very quickly become popular.

I'd really like to know, within the limits of what you're allowed to say, how WU flags a transaction. How does the system tell you that the person in front of you needs to fill out extra forms, or cannot make the money order? This would help us enormously with verisimilitude.

^^^ Agreed. It might be helpful to have pschmidi answer some of our questions if possible.

Might be good if this was behind a log in. Maybe a MOD can make that determination.

Maybe pschmidi would be the best judge of that. He/she may not want to/be able to answer other members questions.

I'm overhelmed that my post got so many answers right away.

I'm not sure if I can be of any help to you, as I don't work for WU itself, but for a company which does transfers with WU, so I have to look into it, if I got any information which I can give. And in my company and in Switzerland we have policies and laws which are maybe stricter than in other countries.

I look if I got time at my work if there are any helpful things and then I come back here and we'll see how I can post it, that the information is only helpful for scambaiters and not for the scammers.

Welcome here pschmidi.

If you have some valuable information for us, then it's better to post it in the 'help and hints' forums, which is behind a login. Otherwise passing scammers would find it too. Could you also post the scam e mails you get on our sister site scamwarners.com? http://www.scamwarners.com/forum/index.php Thanks!

Thnks for sharing you're information

But a Question

What Information Transfers the MTCN

I mean, If i deposit $10USD and I made up a False WU-Document (to send to my scammer)
and i put in the Real MTCN can the receiver see what the amount is by the MTCN
