Scammers are evolving and becoming more dangerous by the day, they are getting so bold as to call retailers such as walmart and other stores in the USA who have moneygram or western union terminals on site and threaten to detonate a bomb within the store if the employee who answers does not wire money to them per instructions.

The FBI is working on finding out who these people are: if you or anyone you know works in retail , especially at a large retail chain with moneygram or western union on site let them know that these are scammers who

1. cannot see you as they claim

2. do not have a bomb to detonate in the building

3. are in another country

It is best for managers to have a plan of action ready should such a threat come about to contact police as descretely as possible yet quickly, evacuate the store immediately for safety sake and let the police give the all clear.

MSNBC has done a report on this recently, no bombs have ever been found in any of the stores who received threats and yes clerks have wired thousands of dollars to the scammers out of fear.

This is a VERY serious situation, if this is not nipped in the bud now, these people will one day be here in the US following through on their threats, it has to stop NOW!

This same group hit one of our banks a couple of weeks ago. It's not just the stores they are going after anymore.
