I was a victim of a scam. I recieved a check in the mail along with a letter saying that I had won $50,000 .All I had to do was cash the advance check for $3000.00 and western union $2100.00 back to a woman named Sara Heinz in Brooklyn,NY upon recieving the money the would issue the remaining amount of my prize winnings which would be sent via fed ex along with a 1099 for tax purposes.I called the company Royal Financial Group as instructed and talked to two different people both with foreigan accents.I fell for their scam I deposited the check . But the good thing ismy bank put a 5 day hold on the check . my bank called 2 days later and said that the check was a fake .I should haveknown something when the envelope was post marked from Alberta Canada and the bank that the check was issued from was California Bank and Trust.

Wilco Fabrics and Prints just contacted me via email about cashing money orders for them. I knew it was scam, but are there people dumb enough to buy into this?

My little brother just recieved 3 checks totaling 3,900. So when he recieved them me and my mother was like who in the world would send that my much money to my silly brother so as I was looking at the money orders I said these do not look real to me so I went online and typed up the bank in front of the check and this web site came up. I am glad I looked first. What should I do now with these money orders throw them away or take them to wal-mart or contact the FBI.

Has anyone been asked to mail a money order after cashing a Wells Fargo money order to the following address?

Ademola Adeoti
45 Rita Rd.
SW81JX London, United Kingdom...

by a guy going by the name of Fholar Johnson who says he's from Alabama, but is temp. living in India???

I received 3 money orders for $375.oo over the amount charged as payment for doing 3 portraits. The person told me they were from the USA, but when Fedex brought the package with the money orders inside... they had been shipped from India. The person asked for me to put them into my checking account, withdrawl the amount they owe me, then purchase a money order for the remaining amount and mail it to someone in London... What should I do? THis just doesn't seem right to me..all kinds of red flags are going up.

MELISSA...I wish I would've known to. This just happened to me a week ago! It is my hope that no one else is fooled by this. I cashed a check for $4830 and of course this backfired. I wish it was something that could be done but unfortunately there isn't.

I had received an email regarding a job, so I replied. Needless to say. I think the company name was Textile Limited or Supreme Textiles or something like that. The guy's name was Pedro Cristiano. He called my cell phone multiple times. He sent me 10 $850 money orders. I was to keep 10% and the western union fee. I was to send the other money to where he wanted me to (which were all in Nigeria). When I received the money orders I didn't know what to think. I took them to the credit union where I bank and took them to the post office (considering they were postal money orders). They were different. I even called the police and they said it was a scam. They told me to shred the money orders, so I did. Now the guy is emailing me telling me he is notifying the FBI and the proper authorities. It's too big of a mess to get involved in. I wish I would have known before I even responded.


2006-07-31 14:52:35 -
JAHRAL!! that is the same e-mail that I received except there was a different person's name. If only I would have found this info. before I actually cashed that money order and wired the payment. This is really unfortunate.
