    I received an email today from Western Union with this scam.

    I haven't done business with them since the early '70s. Very enticing message. Tried to tempt me with $5,000 twice daily until $200,000 if I contacted through this number and gave info they "needed" to send me money I supposedly lost in a scam. Then, went on to say I'd forfeit it all if I didn't respond.
