    okay, so I check my gmail and I see an inbox message that says "you have successful transaction". I may have an idea who it came from, but the entire email is in german and I have no idea what it says lol. Does anyone know what I should do? or can any of you possibly help me translate it? Thanks in advance.

    if no body has transferred money to you, its 120% spam. I have transacted several times in western union, i did'nt get any email ever, if it has MTCN number check it in website if its even valid.

    Thanks, bro but I used google translate. I dont think its spam though its from western union response (at) western union (dot com) And I think I know who sent it, but I think he would contact me first before sending me the $$. Im still a little confused but I knwo better then to get caguht up in a scam

    edit: Do I have to have the senders full name? It says
    W0131 We do not have an order with the provided information. Please verify your information and click Check Status of another transfer.


    also, will it make a difference that the money was sent via western union UK?

    even though it has domain of western union , i think its email spoofed (serach spoofing in goggle)

    i myself have spoofed emails several times to prank my friends, thing is if it has MTCN number and asscoiated address names, go in western union and track it, if it retuns false, its definately spam, you can even track the email headers and check if the ip is of western union (serach check email headers in google) other wise its spam.

    Definitely spam, I searched the address it came from (dime110.dizinc.com) and whoever sent it isnt even located in germany, hes in the US. Whoever it is he owns hostdime.com, hes on fraud watchers and the scam letters database. This should be moved to the shitlist!

    ip-adress (dot com slash) ip_tracer/dime110.dizinc.com
