it's amazing what these scumbags will do to try to trick people into sending them money. i figure if i can waste some of their time and send them all over the place trying to track down western union payments then maybe they won't get a hold of some old lady's bank account.

What if it's a scam to get you wasting your time, thinking you're wasting other people's time?
