A few days back, Australian broadcaster Derryn Hinch admitted in an article in the Herald Sun to being scammed. He called it a
“…clever internet scam that made those Nigerian banking fraudsters look like amateurs.”
Essentially, Hinch sent $4000 to a New Yorker who had offered to rent him an apartment for a few weeks. The scammer didn’t really own the apartment and took off with his money.
Never, ever send a stranger money via Western Union. Using Western Union is like having unprotected sex. (now you have images of Hinch having sex). It’s convient and easy but, eventually it will end up getting you in trouble.
I don’t need who this is, but this video is the best and most accurate portrayal of the shell game with matchboxes as it is done on the streets today. Most performances you will see of this will be little more than magic tricks dressed up.
