    Haha - I just got a phone call! I guess the guy shit himself as I gave my office number and he had to go through reception to be transfered and bottled it by the time the call was put through!

    Let's see if he calls back or see if I get an email.

    Fun fun fun!

    (I would like a Blackberry Bold though!)

    Tell him rather than spend the money on WU charges you'll pop around with the cash and pick up the phone in person. (Or have a friend, who just happens to live around the corner from their office, do it.

    Nice idea Dug, maybe I will try that. Before I do, I'd appreciate other members input as to what they think I should do next.

    Is there a way I could possibly have him ship me 'something', i.e. a brick in a box. Without parting with any cash.

    What's the deal with Western Union anyway, I mean if I did actually send the transfer, and good were not delivered etc... do they have any insurance?

    Maybe if I offer to pay via Paypal - that way I can 'show' the money, but not authorize the transaction until delivery of goods?

    In one of his replies he stated that customs were no problem. Ask him if he could "slip something" into the package. Go carefull on the wording if its by email, but try and bait the bastard. See how far he will go.

    Dear Raqib,

    Thanks for the Western Union details, however, it would work best for me to PayPal you the money direct to your email account. It's instant and protected for us both. There are not any Western Union offices near my location.

    Also, you mentioned earlier that 'Customs will be no problem', I was wondering if it was possible if you could put a little 'something extra' into the package for me. Of course I will pay top dollar for 'quality extra's'.

    Please let me know.

    Best regards,

    Haha - this is hilarious! His reply:

    Thanks for the mail Martin,

    I tried given you a call but the trouble was too much to reach you.

    About the payment,we only accept paypal and its also easy and safe with us.you can go to any location in your state which is Bangkok.there are walmart offices that has western union and some other Banks also have western union.

    About the "something extra" i will give you the ipod touch 8gb,i hope that is okay with you and i hope in doing more business deal with you in the nearest future.

    Waiting to hear from you.Give me a call on +447024030617.

    Raqib


    Followed very quickly with:

    i made a typo mistake.

    i meant we only accept western union not paypal.

    Then my reply:

    Dear Raqib,

    I am not sure if you know where Bangkok is? It is in Thailand. I am not in the United States, there are no WalMarts here in Thailand. And Wester Union offices are very sparce here. There is no Western Union office within 1,000kms of my location. Also, Bangkok is a City, not a State.

    As for the offer of an iPod Touch 8GB, whilst that seems very generous, I was hoping for something a little more, hmmm, how to say this....something to help me to 'party'.

    I trust you can help.

    Looks like the penny has dropped Withnall:

    Hi Martin,

    oh ok.

    well how about money gram offices,you can also make the payment through money gram.

    And about something to help you party,if i understand you correctly"white powder"?

    well it will cost you,how much do you think you can afford,but firstly the shipping will only be via FedEx because thats where i guarantee no customs trouble.

    Meanwhile,i will help you find western union locations close to you in your city and send them to you.

    Waiting to hear from you.

    My reply:

    Hi Raqib,

    Yes I was referring to 'talcuum powder'. Do you think there will be any risk with this? I don't require much. Just a little for me and my friends. Again, is this risky?!?!

    As for payment, I am still looking for a more secure method of getting the payment to you whilst guaranteeing that my goods are delivered before you receive payment. As it should be in normal transactions of this nature.

    As you know, there are a lot of internet scammers out there and I have read about lots of those nasty Nigerian scammers. I wouldn't want to feel foolish simply giving money away to a complete stranger online without receiving any guarantee of my goods.

    Best regards,
