Hello, some months ago I'v been scammed and I've already talked about it. But as I sent money through Western Union I received this e-mail:

Welcome To Western Union Phone: + 229-938 63 077
Send Money Worldwide
Send Money
This is to notify you about the latest development concerning all the payment that are left in our custody, which yours are inclusive,Besides your where given a bill of $100 .00 in order to receive your payment of which we didn’t hear from you for sometime now....
Hence, our Western Union is now offering a Special BONUS to help all our customers that are having their payment in our custody due to of prices. In order words we are now requesting that those involve should pay only the sum of $55. 00 to receive all their payment abandoned in our custody.

Besides, my dear, this is the opportunity for you and have to comply and your funds shall be transfer to your designated address.
But remember that after (3 DAYS) you did not make the payment then we will divert your funds to Government Fund, to avoid problem or we will cancel the payment for this year until next year because this year is not like last year.

Again after (THREE DAYS ) We will enter A new project for the year and that is the reason why we decided to help to all our customers before we enter into the new project.

So be advise to send the $55.00 immediately so that we will register your payment and for to start receive $5,000 as from tomorrow.
Be advise that there is no time again for we to call any person on phone unless you will call + 229-938 63 077
E-mail (
After the payment of $55..00 you will start receiving your money every day$5,000 through Western Union
Send the money through Western Union Money Transfer with the information below,
Receiver's name== Donald Okoli
Country== Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Text Question== Trust
Answer== Honest
The moment i receive the payment of $55.00 i will release the first payment information of $5,000 to you and you will pick up the money and i will send you another money. Hoping to hear from you.

Well, it sounds bad.....

It is a scam. If you have the original email I would forward it on to Western Union.
