Is Western Union only used for sending money? I wanna scam a scammer.

I've been e-mailing this guy who I KNOW is scamming me, and I've been playing along just for fun. It's actually really funny how dumb this guy is and thinks I am. Anyway, he finally asked me to western union the deposit on this apartment that he'll "send me the keys to". Obviously I'm not going to send money, but I want to send a "ha ha" letter instead so when he picks it up he gets it instead of money. Can I do that? Also, is there a place to report frauds like this? He's asking me to send it to Spain.

  • LOL I was looking for cars online and a guy had an 06 nissan murano listed for 4900. we started emailing and I quickly realized it was a scam. I REALLY wish I could have retaliated too! Lol Contacting the police isn't going to do any good. They can't really do anything.

  • Are you absolutely positive it is a scam? I personally know ALOT of people who rent from people outside the US or from different states. These immigrants save up money, come here, buy up cheap houses and rent them out; then go back home. I know scams are rampant and it sucks but I also know I would be PISSED if someone wasted that much of my time when a serious renter would send the deposit and be moved in. I'm not trying to sound like a bitch, just please be careful. If its a legit scam, get the police involved, if its not, he can come after you for all sorts of things if he wanted.

  • Well, I'm not going to send $1000, wait 3 days for the keys I'm "supposed to receive" from an Evangelist on a mission in Spain with his wife who apparently does not care that I stated I will be living in their 2 bedroom beach condo with my 4 wives, 3 husbands, 18 children, and 12 cats, to find out it was really a scam.
