Online Fraud, Western Union Daily Receipt Of Thousands Of Dollars

Western Union Receipt Of Money, Fraud

We would first of all like to mention that this online fraud is NOT committed by Western Union. Online fraudsters use the name of Western Union to defraud innocent online users of their hard earned money. You will receive an email saying that a few million dollars have been released in your name, the reason for this windfall could be many. All such emails are frauds so do not worry about who sent it, how they knew your email address etc.

The email says that a large sum of money has been released in your name. Western Union will now pay you a few thousand dollars a day (could be 10,000 dollars) until the amount is fully received by you. You are asked to contact a person with the details provided. If you follow up on this email fraud, you will be asked to pay a few hundred or thousand dollars as processing fee. You might get a few fake Western Union Money Transfer details, not a single dollar will come your way so do not fall for this fraud.

Western Union as a mode of payment has existed for many decades and has often been a great help to persons doing urgent money transfers. There was a time when many Asian students studying abroad needed urgent funds from their family in Asia. It was also likely that these students wanted to provide financial help to their families in Asia on an urgent basis. This was long before the internet and mouse and keyboard commerce took birth. It was Western Union who helped these people make the transfer almost instantly. Online security threats are being perpetuated to attack almost every online mode of payment, credit cards, paypal, bank accounts and ofcourse Western Union are not being spared.

There is only one way that we can make the internet a safer place to trade, surf and play. This is by generously sharing any online security information that we might have. We have always been at the forefront in the process of educating buyers regarding gemstones and jewelry. The Kaisilver extrajewel security resource aims to carry that policy of educating buyers, to online safety too.
