    Hello guys,

    a friend of mine was looking for a flat for renting and paid the rent for first 2 months in advance through Western Union.
    After a few days, he didn't hear about the person anymore. He sent me name and email of the person and I started to google it - and what I have found - I found on a forum that this person is really scammer!

    He already sent the money, is there any way to receive them back? In other way, is there any way to save this situation?
