Beware of Email Phishing About Western Union MTCN

By Grace

Just another email phishing talking about Western Union MTCN, money transfer control number. While I was checking my email messages, and expecting important emails, I found an interesting email message about the Western Union Cash transfer. I know why I became the next target of scammers and frauds. It is because few months ago, I posted an articles about international money transfer, and other topics about sending money like remittances. The scammers, are searching for the word money transfer and they will send email message to other people who they think they will become interested. The sender was not that smart, if he knew I am the one who is spreading or informing everyone about “email phishing” he should not include me in his email lists; his next targets.

What’s Western Union MTCN?

“Send money online with Western Union and Track a Transfer with the MTCN, or receive money at an Agent Location with your tracking number (MTCN) Money Transfer Control Number” Source:

Look how this man wants to receive US$2.5, wow that’s a lot of money, enough money to help me retire rich and comfortable. But, sad to say it’s just a message from unknown person.

I am very familiar with Western Union, I am sending and receiving cash. I love using Western Union service and even when I want to convert my dollar earnings to my local currency payout, I choose western union.

If I will respond to this email, the sender a.k.a “DOCTOR” Dr. Eden William, will get my information and most of my information are linked to my bank accounts and online payment processors like PayPal, PayZa, SolidTrustPay, etc. Maybe his next thing to do is to get access with my online banking and online processors account. I am not that “crazy” to get lure with $2.5 Million. So, what can you say about this information? Do you think this is real? If you were me, will you going to respond to this type of email or informing Western Union about how other people used their “Company Name” in scams and fraudulent activities? I hope you liked this page, try to inform other people especially your friends.
