The scammer's basic kit; photos of widows and orphans, passports, certificates and court documents, all guaranteed 100% fake or stolen

This is a fake WU document, intended to be faxed from Barclays Bank China (who would surely not use Western Union for money transfers).
Barclays Bank China does not exist - it is Barclays Bank Plc who have an office in Beijing and an association with various banks in China.
Very poor spelling and grammar, yet it could fool someone whose English is not that good.

You would have to have an english reading level around grade 1 to think this was genuine.

Welcome, Renovator :)

Sadly, so many of these documents & emails are sent to people who do not have English as their first language.

Others who receive these docs. believe the sender may not have the knowledge of English & are fooled into believing the document is authentic.

Here is another from scammer Chun Lin - a list of MTCNs showing 'your fund' can be picked up. It looks reasonably authentic, but the fact is that even if these were genuine transfer numbers (which these aren't), you would still never be able to collect the money as the scammer would have used a different name to yours as the receiver.
As usual - just another means to get more money out of you.
