Help - Paid With Western Union

sorry for making this my first post. i was on another board and i dont even want to deal with that board anymore.

is there anyway i can get my money back from a scammer if i payed through western union? i am sure they have all of his info and where he lives. is there anyway to get my money back? i sent $250 i know its not much but what can i do?

Hey man, I’ve been burned before by scammers and rip-offs. But I always thought, there’s not much you can do about it. I mean, what can you do? Go to the authorities and tell them, “Excuse me, I just tried to order some anabolic steroids and I paid by Western Union, but never received my order. Can you help me get a refund?”

That’s the risk we all take when ordering something illegal. It’s not as easy as going to the grocery store when buying AAS. But I feel your pain, buddy. I wish I could help. There must be something one can do to recover money from or catch out a scammer.

Yep - chalk that $250 up as education. You can’t get it back. you can raise hell on the boards, and if there is anyone else that has had an issue withhim, you might be able to get somethig done through the admin there.

But a lot of scammers are selective. They keep the right people happy and gain their trust, all the while taking 200 bucks here and 500 bucks there.

This end of the pool is a place where you trust no one up front. I got took for 300 bucks last year, so I know how you feel.

Could you post the scammer? Just curious.

Nice work really - but just to bring you back to earth - it’s “with him” not “withhim”. Look it up - but I’m sure you’ll find a nice article to refute me. Or as it were a string of other peoples work you will cite to prove that it is indeed “withhim”
