Sigh. I don't know why the scammers even try to attempt this one. They've got to be relying on 100 percent pure greed is my guess. It's either that, or they are simply using blind stupidity in a desperate effort to make a buck. If you see any e-mail at all with an offer for a large sum of free money right out of the blue, it is always a scam, and they are hoping you will jump on it right away, without thinking about what you are doing. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but you can't think with your eyeballs, and this scam is much too quickly and easily picked apart. Please do not act rashly only to get ripped off.
They want you to wire a small amount of money to them, usually around $100, or in this case, £98, in exchange for a larger amount. If you just take time out to check up on this, you can quickly find out at Western Union's website that this MTCN doesn't even exist, without even picking up the phone or leaving your chair. The fact that they want you to respond to a free e-mail address, as always, is just another enormous red flag that it is, in fact, a scam. Do not wire them any money, for you will never get anything back, ever. This entry is located here. You can watch the Top Four Money Scam videos, including Western Union, linked here.
