This is an email that I received pretending to be from Western Union. This email was interesting in the sense that it is a picture instead of any text being typed into the body. That is why I could not just copy and paste it so I had to attach this photo. What I am hoping is that if someone is questioning whether or not to send these people money they will do a reverse image search and find this. The email address associated with this email is email@example.com and the phone number is +601126433169.

This seems to be a common scam that has went on for years. If you are involved with a company that asks you to do this get out immediately and do not deposit the check. Peoples bank accounts have been frozen by these checks leaving them not able to access their money. The phone number associated with this scam is 205-598-1005 which seems to be linked to both of those websites. If you go to those websites you will see the same generic login page. If you call the phone number it is just a automated system that is a dead end. Don't be a victim and stay away from this.

Once opened, you will be provided with steps to avoid blocking of your account. Failing to do so will be considered a denial of our terms and conditions and your account will be permanently closed.
We appreciate your understanding as we work to ensure your account safety.
This company has several complaints from people saying that they signed up for the service and cancelled during their money back guarantee period only to have the company charge them anyways. This is typical for companies like this. No legit company is going to charge this amount of money for some stupid articles that pitch other products in them with no useful information. A company that is based out of Florida is just another red flag since Florida seems to be a haven for scammers. If scammers are sued in the state of Florida and get a judgment on them Florida has an unlimited homestead exemption meaning that someone can own a 10 million dollar home and a judgment creditor can not touch it. Good deal for scammers, raw deal for victims.
My advice to everyone is not to sign up for them. There is plenty of useful information on the internet for free. This is a company that is charging people for complete nonsense and its disgusting with how they are getting away with it.
