    As bananaconspiracy said, if you paid by Western Union or moneygram your money is gone forever.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    If you paid by paypal or bank transfer, you money is gone forever.

    Paypal can only get your money back if there is money left in the scammer's paypal-linked bank account. Scammers know this and will immediately withdrawal your money and disappear. No money in the scammer's bank account means absolutely no possibility of refund for you.

    Your bank can only get your money back if there is money left in the scammer's bank account. Scammers know this and will immediately withdrawal the money you transferred. No money in the account means absolutely no possibility of you getting your hard-earned cash back.

    You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-fraud-watching site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    Well the scam is still running with the lady claiming her daughter died and has animals for sale that remind her of them. This time she offerred us 2 Savannah cats. Her email is :

    Natalia Trinna
    [email protected]

    Supposed to transport the pets through jetpets with a support email of [email protected]

    They ask you to pay Western Union to a location in Cameroon. What a waste of human life; claiming her kids died and she has to give up the animals for adoption.

    alongside the following

    -TICA registration papers
    -Pedigree papers
    -Vet record

    The reason i am giving them out is because they was for me only
    daughter but she died just some few weeks back of a car accident when
    she was coming back from school so i don't like see them around me
    again now because they drive me to think of my daughters dead that is
    why i will like to give them out for adoption. they really need a
