Did the op actually go to a Western Union office to collect the money and was told it was fake?

I’ve received WU money transfers before. It can take up to 5 days for the money to show up at the local WU office. I entered the MTCN shwon on the receipt in their tracker and it shows money was sent then cancelled.

I went to Western Union at Walmart. They entered the numbers and said they weren’t legit. I also tried to go to a Money Mart the next day to double check. I waited in line for 20 minutes and gave up.

The lady from Western Union at Walmart said the money should be able to be picked up instantly after it is sent. You would think if I had to wait five days someone would tell me?

Maybe this guy is legit? I’m not sure, but I haven’t heard back from him.

Well, I was just giving you my personal experience with WU money transfers. The one from Russia took 5 days, one from Italy and another from USA took 3 days. The Canadian one was instant but the amount was below $500 and paid via credit card not a bank account. They are pretty safe. I would never accept a WU money order but I have no problem with a money transfer. Even though it is a pain to have to go to an office to collect money.

I don’t know if your buyer was scamming you or just decided to cancel. Peace.

I am surprised you let the transaction go that far. Shipping to Nigeria would have been my first tip this was a scam. Pic below of the shipping address!

Interact does not send the security question and pass code with the initial email. There are also 3 parties involved with a e-transfer, Interact plus the 2 participating banks. Even if the banks are the same Interact is still involved.

Just because this fella spends more on his rig than his living quarters doesn't mean he's a scammer. I've been spending more $$$ on my system than on my crib for decades! :lol:

And not everyone from Nigeria is a scammer. Just 98.9% of them.

Not to mention that the amount exceeds the maximum allowable in an Interac transfer, unless it's been raised recently.
