Western Union: CAUTION! Quite recently I was a victim of a scammer who was no novice at this stunt. I was (and still am) in need of a '88-'93 hatch rear window targeted by some bat-wielding scumbag. A fellow called me from a tiny town in Nevada with a very lengthy song and dance saying he had a NOS in box, but was leaving town today. He had all his cards in order; his expletive-filled rant said he didn't use PayPal, had no way of bringing window on the plane etc etc. His deaf wife(!?) told him to ask me to send him $600 via Western Union (I was given his name & phone number to do so) and that's the end of the story. No window, no answer to phone, and no $600.
Don't be too trusting no matter how good the deal sounds, and desperate you are.
