I went to the Post Office today to mail a letter and got stuck filling out forms at the counter. Meanwhile, the old guy next to me was asking the postal employee about the best way to send money out of the country and track it, insure it, or whatever - using a money order. He said he wasn't sure if this was a scam so he was just going to send a small amount this first time. He went on to say he was going to have some kind of art business overseas. I thought oh boy here we go. I grabbed a sticky note and wrote "www.419eater.com" on it and said "Go here and read all about your friend overseas." Who knows, maybe I saved the guy a lot of money. He didn't look like he had much to begin with. I can go to heaven now because I did one good deed.

Hi MonkeyKing!

You have a kind heart, and that was nice of you to help out a potential victim. I can't tell you how many times I've been at the local grocery store and slowed my cart down a bit as I passed by the Western Union desk, wondering if anyone was being scammed. (Of course, they were all wondering if I was a stalker or something, so maybe it wasn't quite as effective as your approach!)

If you get a chance, I encourage you to check out https://www.scamwarners.com/, our sister site, where they post the opening formats of scammers and explain a bit further how scams work. I've sent quite a few people over there myself, and the work they do is incredibly valuable.

Thank you for looking out for another human!

I ran into a similar instance once at my own bank. It was Christmas-time and an elderly man was trying to send $10,000 to his future wife-to-be in Ghana. The bank manager was explaining the scam and how it worked, making every effort to talk him out of it.

It warmed my heart to be able to pass the ScamWarners website to both of them.

My sister in law is now a retired bank manager, but she has many stories of taking clients aside and trying to stop them from sending money. It always amazed her how firmly people held their beliefs in these stories. But she sure felt good when interventions were successful.
Good for stepping up and helping out!

Thank you for the link to the Scam Warners site. I'm going to print business cards to direct people to that site and hand them out at work and at the post office.

Thanks, but I have had about 200 sheets of blank business cards in my file cabinet for the past 20 years. I finally found a reason to use them up. Very Happy
