From time to time, I do receive emails from people who have come across one of those fake softwares (Facebook hacking software) and would like my opinion on the legitimacy of the same. Few days back i received an email from one of our readers asking for “western union bug activation code”.
At first i decided to ignore this email, but when i started getting repeated emails from other people as well asking for the same “western union bug activation code” i decided to Google it. And much to my surprise, there were dozens of websites selling this fake software.
According to this website the Western Union Bug is a software that cracks Western Union databases and gives the transfer data for payment made to any country in the world. It can change the sender/receiver information with any other information if you want, so that you cash in other peoples money to your Name.
The website will provide you with a trial software which works only when you get activation code, Which you can get only when you transfer the money to hackers account. The So called activation package starts with 250 USD for a transfer of 1000 USD max and 400 USD for a transfer of up to 4000 USD.
Obviously Western Union is not having any Bug of that kind. If anyone would have really found the Bug, Why on earth they would reveal it to the whole world and not cashing in from that Bug instead. But i had to try it, to show you how it is fake and what might happen if you try it.
Stay away from these fake software’s and research before trying any of such software’s. there are a lot of people who have been scammed by this fake software makers. One guy who has actually gone thorough this Scam, has posted his experience on his blog.
By installing any of such rogue software you are putting yourself to potential Identity theft and your computer system to potential malware. So people beware of it and make your friends aware!.
