Western Union told me the money was picked up in Nashville, TN. So he or someone conected to him is in the US
Sometimes the person in the US that picks up the money is a middle man/person that does not even KNOW that they are part of a scam. They think that they are working as a Billing Department type job for someone that is overseas, and it is there job to pick up wire transfers for this person and deposit them into an account, or send that money on to someone else. The scammers do this to cover their tracks of who and where they really are.
