Loan Scam – email@example.com
Following on from this post. We are now at the stage where the scammer asks for the payment. The majority of scammers will want to use an untraceable/unstoppable method such as Western Union, Moneygram, iTunes cards or Bitcoin. In this case, the scammer wants to use Western Union/Moneygram to a person in the USA. While scammers will sometimes ask for money to be sent to totally fake names, they will often use victims of other scams to launder money for them. Often these are victims of Employment or Romance scams, who think they are receiving payments as part of a job, on behalf of a loved one. Although, these “mules” are in some instances complicit and know exactly what the scammer is doing.
