Helping people to get cheap hospital treatment

I just received a fun spam mail. It said that there was a way to make $2000 in a month helping poor individuals that couldn’t afford medical treatments.
Wonderful, I said, and I immediately answered from my fake email account. Finally I have the chance to make a boat of money without effort and helping people! Wow!
After a few minutes they told me that there are some poor individuals that don’t have money to pay for hospital treament, but there are some philantropist that are willing to pay for them!
Unfortunately, those poor guys don’t have a bank account, so they can’t receive donations…
So, that’s the job: you receive thousands in your account, then withdraw all keeping a 10%, and then send via Western Union to those poor guys.
The problem is: who is sending this money?
It’s not sent by a philantropist, but from a stolen bank account. The scammer feel safe because will receive money anonymously and can’t be traced, while you are going to have a bad time. If you are lucky, the bank simply takes that money back (at your expense). If you are unlucky, you will have some years of jail time for money laundering…
