Dear Victim
We inform you that you need to send the payment in cash, after you will make it you need to send us the scanned copy of payment receipt from Western Union by fax or by e-mail, if you don’t have a fax available you can attach the copy by e-mail.

Please follow our steps listed bellow if you want to close this deal with success.

We informs you that you can pay with your Credit Card on line to the Western Union web site but is better to pay for the transfer with cash at a local Western Union agent because if you will use the Western Union On line Services may impose different limitations on the maximum amount of $999, for this reason, in case of a larger amount to be sent, we recommend that you go to more than one agent and submit the total sum in separate transfers. Western Union agent locations are independent businesses that provide money transfer service to their customers on behalf of Western Union.. Western Union agents are primarily banks, post offices, exchange offices or retail locations – grocery stores, mail box centers, drug stores, travel agencies, depots, other retail locations.

Independent Western Union agents and Western Union Online Services may impose different limitations on the maximum amount that can be submitted per day. For this reason, in case of a larger amount to be sent, we recommend that you go to more than one agent and submit the total sum in separate transfers.
