Fake MoneyGram Payment Emails Being Sent by Scammers

Would you share this Article with others?

If you have received fake MoneyGram emails like the one below, which ask recipients to make payment in order to receive thousands or millions of dollars, please do not follow the instructions in them. This is because the fake emails are being sent online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money for some so-called payment their victims will never receive.'

Usually, scammers use email addresses from free email providers like Hotmail.com, AOL.com, Yahoo.com or Gmail.com. So, once you see a MoneyGram email message coming from one of those email addresses, that is a red flag that it is a fake.
