When pieces of your world Iapart
When pieces of your world fall apart
This image depicts the consequences of transferring money through Western Union/MoneyGram Transfer to a scammer. You will be stripped of everything you thought and owned. The scammer wants the MTCN - Money Transfer Control Number. (which is placed on the receipt after payment) and the secret question and answer so that he does not have to rely on his ID for pick up of funds. With this number he can pick up the money from anywhere in the world. Scammers request the money be in American USD The procedures for the transfer are usually relayed to the victim by the scammer who educates her in the use of money transfers.
All across the internet there are warnings to not send money to anyone you have met online.................but these are ignored because the victim could not possibly think that the person that they love does not exist. When victims have been in love before, they have been in love with a real person flesh and blood. They know what it is like to be in love, to love someone and to have someone love them back but they have never had a partner whom they have met online before and this is what makes this relationship different. The location of meeting your partner has changed...............the platform you meet your partner on is electronic not earth. If you have not met him on Earth and he is asking for money electronically.......you are involved in a scam! The only time a physical exchange should take place is if you meet him in person.
If you are a little unsure before you make a Western Union/MoneyGram Transfer, ask questions and wait it out. Ask him what his letterbox looks like and Google Earth it, ask him questions about the area in which he proposes he lives. Ask him his house number, Google Earth it.
No matter what you do, if you send that money, it will be gone and you will never see it again nor will you see the person you are in love with because it is an illusion - the only real people in the relationship are the group of young university students making money out of you. These are young kids, thinking this is a fun and easy way to make money. You are being CashFished...Do you really want to be one of those people depicted in the image above that did not consider that a group of international university students were pretending to be your lover for money? No, you say, he's real....................you want to believe he is real! But just close your eyes for thirty seconds and consider the scenario above who could not see the students behind the love letters, the phone calls, the photos and the messenger, they were told it was a scam, they knew there was something not right but they could not put their finger on what it was until they lost everything. Their cash, their belongings, their friendships and family. What will your friends say when you tell them you were scammed - or won't you tell them. What will you do to pay back that loan that you took out to send money to him - will you have to work another job, mortgage your house or have you done that already? What happens if it is all not real and you have told your family he will be coming to meet you soon and now you have to tell them it was an illusion. Look at your future without him because the truth is, he is not there with you, not now or nor will he ever be.
It could be true.......right............there could be students writing to you, phoning you, sending you gifts and love letters..............don't be like those people in the image who thought there is no way anyone would do this.
If you send money with a tricky Q&A, this may be disregarded and he may just let Western Union know your name and your details and claim it anyway. If you tick the box that says that they must produce ID to collect REMEMBER that unless a police investigation is instigated, the identity of the person that picked up the funds will not be released. REMEMBER - Police will not investigate out of country jurisdiction unless the amount is tremendously high or there is a kidnapping or murder which means those identity documents will never be released, even in you jump up and down and write to the Police Minister.
If in doubt, wait it out....If he is asking for Western Union/MoneyGram or Ria or a Bank Account and has a series of unfortunate events happen and you have not yet met him in person...it is a scam!
Better still, approach him from another profile, which you can create in seconds, just like he can! Be Creative!!
