More Information--SCAM ALERT!!

On 1/25/09 I wrote about the "mystery shopper" scam mail I received. Whilst listening to a Clark Howard pod-cast he also mentioned "money transfer scams" and mentioned information that Western Union has posted on their Website. This the link to the page where you can find those articles (taken directly from the Western Union site:
