May I please get to your attention that whenever you decide to buy something
on Ebay or similar sites to _never_ pay via Western Union!
Paying via Western Union is "just as safe" as paying cache. You can't get your
money back, unless the person on the other side of the transaction does that.
Also, on certain countries you can get the transfered money from WU without
any identification what so ever. Do not trust blab about secret passwords
Also note that I only _found_ such an imposter, and have not actually lost any
money. I did hear from lots of people wo did lose money to probably the same
man or organisation.
This particular guy is only so stupid to send emails from other Henks to me,
and to recycle his nicknames with different email adresses, so you can 'hop'
from one to the other with Google. AFAIK he's only active Holland, France and
maybe Italy. But similar stories can be found on the ebay.com forums.
