I work as a private investigator on a case involving a scam that occurred from Romania to Germany. I will briefly detail the fraud and how you may assist me with information, as I am currently in Romania rather than Germany.
The scam: The fraudster, let’s call him M, will post a phony rental advertisement on a website, and victims will contact him thinking it’s real. When the two parties communicate, M will state that he wants to know that his victims are serious and have the necessary funds for the rent, so he will ask them to send money to themselves by Moneygram or Western Union and show him the receipt. The victims will do this, and M will take the money in their place from Germany, the country where M claims to live.
I’m curious if someone getting money through one of those two services is required to provide a personal ID card.
Also, the fraudster insisted on the location being Germany and the service being “Money in minutes.” I’m not sure how this method works; perhaps it allows people to get money without having to present their ID? investigation is being conducted into a scam that is taking place in Germany
I’m looking for help in Romania. The policy may differ from one country to the next. I know it is feasible to do it with a false ID, however if you use a fake ID, an ID is required, and the police can get involved for ID fabrication.
I’m curious how one may collect money by producing a receipt for a completed transaction?!? There must be a security flaw in the process of using that service.
It’s simpler than you think. I can nearly accurately describe how he did it ( the scammer). Essentially, you send money to yourself to demonstrate to the scammer that you have the funds. When you transfer the money, he wants to see the receipt, but because you specified Germany as the destination country (a foreign country in this example from the victims perspective), you cannot withdraw it. The fraudster stated that the money would be locked and that once he saw the receipt, he would come to your country, give you the apartment keys, and instruct you to alter the destination’s name to his. He does not, however, require anything other than a transaction ID and potentially a personal ID for this to function. I’m not sure if the scammer fabricated his ID ( if not, then its not required)
The individual receiving the money is frequently duped as well, for example, by being “hired” to accept and send money.
In my situation, the victims paid money to family members or their wife/husband, expecting to pick it up later. This is not the case in this instance. I’m guessing you also encounter scammers in Romania.
Cash should be transferred from a foreign bank account to a fidelity account.
There used to be a guide that had an intermediary bank with SWIFT / IBAN and you would attach a message to the transfer (I believe it was Wells Fargo). I can’t seem to locate it.
I’m thinking of using Western Union, but I’m having trouble with transfer limits.
You can see Fidelity’s instructions for receiving a bank wire in US dollars (USD), including from a foreign bank, here. If you’re sending a transfer to a retirement account, always include the relevant code with the wire instructions, which may be found in the lower half of the page mentioned above. Furthermore, regular IRA contribution limits apply if the wire is for an IRA contribution. Please keep in mind that, while Fidelity does not charge fees for sending or receiving USD bank wires, other institutions may.
I should be able to send an international wire without issue. Simply provide the account number in the memo. Wiring instructions should be available online.
Keep an eye out for hidden currency conversion expenses if the overseas account is not in USD. Even if your bank/service claims to charge ‘no foreign transaction fees,’ to the best of my understanding, all of the major banks utilize an exchange rate that is noticeably higher than the ‘real’ rate.
If the amount is not insignificant, I would consider using a dedicated service such as xe.com or wise.com to transfer your money. These services can be difficult to set up (due to money laundering, anticipate to provide copies of passport pages, etc.), but I believe they are worthwhile if you are moving substantial sums (or transferring often). investigation is being conducted into a scam that is taking place in Germany
Has anyone ever used Remitly to send money overseas?
Is it worthwhile to use it instead of a $40 wire transfer?

Remitly should not be used! Horrible service and account closure after I refused to supply them with additional information that was compromising my personal information.
Better by far. I’d even compare prices to xoom. I used to use remitly a lot, but lately xoom has been my favored option. It is more faster, and the fees are usually lower than with Remitly. If you are sending a substantial sum of money, they may request documentation in accordance with regulations. However, once they approve you for higher sums, this is the way to go. Xoom often sends money immediately after the first deposit and refunds take a few days if you choose the economy option.
Can I send money to a bank, or does the recipient also have to use Xoom or Remitly?
Since I began using remitly, I’ve sent over $25,000 in payments. It’s one of the greatest available.
I located the Remitly employee. The majority of folks I’ve spoken with believe it’s a fraud. In my opinion? Scam. They lock you out of your account because you sent money, then want absurd quantities of identification. With how much they needed, I’m shocked they never asked for my SSN.
What is your largest single Remitly bank-to-bank USD transaction?
Please avoid Remitly wherever possible! The initial transactions will go easily! Then, when you believe them, they withdraw funds from your account. They did that to me; I contacted them approximately ten times, and each time, a customer service agent indicated that they were looking into my problem. Nobody responded to my inquiry. Do you want to guess what these idiots did? They barred me from commenting on their Facebook page and then suspended my account for “suspicious” behavior! Never worry that I haven’t received my money! And when I was able to remark on their Facebook page, I observed several other people who were experiencing the same problem, but now…not a single nasty comment!
There is no appeal process once your account has been permanently suspended. I didn’t have any money in there in my instance, but I’m still really unhappy.
Oh, trust me, avoid remitly at all costs; they will delete your account as soon as they notice you aren’t making them money. My account was terminated after an altercation with a person who stated that my account had been reported for suspicious activity. I uploaded the documents online, and a few hours later my account was closed, with them stating that we cannot divulge why your account was closed, and that’s it!! But you know what? I’m delighted they terminated my account since I’ll be giving my business to someone who provides better service from now on. They should be called remitLIE, a company full of lies and incapable of conducting business properly.
It’s not worth it! Instead, use a wire transfer. I tried mailing money to buy a Colamburium for my parents, which costs 7000 dollars, and after providing them with all of the documentation, they revoked my subscription for questionable behaviour. They must have heard of a Colamburium, which is a church where I can inter my parents’ ashes. That’s what you get when you talk to Indians and have a language barrier.
You should look for something else.
Remitly is a fraud. They are a total waste of time. I attempted to send $200 USD using M-PESA to a buddy in Kenya (the local online money transfer tool). I paid with my credit card (which first of all was rejected by the credit card company because Remitly is apparently often used for fraud). Everything was fine with my bank until the troubles with Remitly began:
They required ID verification and the uploading of a video of me saying numbers and rotating my head, after which they took an hour to respond and then asked a phone call. They kept me waiting for 20 minutes before telling me that the account had been blocked and the transfer had been revoked, and that I would get my money back in 10 (!!!!) business days if I contacted them to cancel the account. They were adamant about not canceling. Bottom line: a huge waste of time. investigation is being conducted into a scam that is taking place in Germany
I’ve used remitly several times and have never had a problem. The only criticism I have is that you cannot send money from Vietnam to Australia. Otherwise, everything is fine.

People that claim it’s a fraud because they ask for your details are joking. Of course, they need your information to prevent money laundering, etc.
Remitly was a terrible experience. “Your transfer was canceled and your account was not charged,” said the notice. LARGE LIE. My credit card was charged in full.
First contact with support: “Refunds will be processed within 24 to 48 hours.
“Contact your bank,” said the second talk three days later.
My bank’s response: “Our investigation revealed that you sent the 300 euros to Remitly via Sepa transfer. We are unable to cancel this transfer.” TRUE
third conversation Today, four days later: “Please allow 5-7 banking days from the date of cancellation. 4:19 PM The cash will be deposited into your account. Chayanika”
Actually, a SEPA bank transfer was sent to CHECKOUT (one of the payment providers used by Remitly) with the following information:

They contacted me multiple times and asked inane questions about my life that had NOTHING to do with the transfer, etc….
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A COMPANY……totally unprofessional, entirely sub-par, and most likely JUST A SCAM TO ACQUIRE YOUR LEGAL INFORMATION.
BEWARE, BUYER! “YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!
DO NOT USE REMITTLY, WHAT A SAD JOKE ;- (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((. investigation is being conducted into a scam that is taking place in Germany
