Hi All, I am a businessman and been one for nearly 20 years. The first true test of these money order scams is to check the e-mail address. No legit company is located on yahoo.com; they normally have their e-mails addy in their company's name (IE Sears.com, Walmart.com....the second test is to bring the money orders to an officer in your bank never to a teller, they are trained to spot frauds and if possible go to an outlet that sells the money orders...third test ....all cashier's checks and money orders have dates on them....fourth test...American express gold secuity seal does not start to peel off .....fifth test...look at the account number line on the bottom of any MO or check it should be clear with no shadows plus straight line ( compare it to your own personal check) and the writing on the back is also clear and not faded in areas...Last but not least if it sounds too good to be true; it is a scam 99.9999% of the time....Please note that WalMart has no system yet to check their own money orders or their employees are not properly trained to recognize frauds....If no one can tell if they are real or not...check with local law enforcement...one last piece of advice if you decide to do business over the Internet; set up a seperate account seperated from your personal money and if no one can determine if they are real and you want to take a risk talk to a bank officer about depositing one check in the seperate account and ask them to put a hold on the funds and inform them of your suspicions until it clears; that way the worse scenario is a charge back fee or the bank may involve the Federal Government, thus not holding you accountable because of your honesty and so they can catch those jerks because it is a federal offense. Above all be careful and take care!!!!!

I had an encounter with Marckus Burnham, supposedly from Ohio and the UK. He sent me five money orders totaling $4150, I took them to my bank and luckily, the teller said they would have to send them for collections as they did not handle international money orders. This wise and alert teller saved me a lot of money. I was a bit leary of trying to cash them anyway and had a feeling they were fake. The bank still has them but has told me that they are sure they are fake. Ladies especially, be careful on the internet! Marckus was the first of three scammers I've dealt with so far. The second one used the name Robert Collins, supposedly from Kansas and on a job in Nigeria. His story is that he got robbed of all the possessions in his brief case. Also, beware of a person calling himself John Jamiu Barsh, he says he's originally from Germany, lives in NY, and is on a job in the Republic of Benin, Africa. His story is that he can't cash his paycheck and wants you to hold it for him and send him some money out of your pocket. Right now, I'm thinking of trying to find a way to set up a web site just to catch these guys that are trying to fraud the kind people of the USA.

I have just received 5 money orders for 925.00$ each and the counterfit job is so sad its unbelievable. You should always check the money orders closely. go online and look up all of the information available on the money orders. for example; check the bank website where the account resides, check the place that the money order was sent from check the payee's endorsment information, the address to teh traveler company. And for some reason these people can counterfit the money orders yet they cant purchase stamps for the enveloppe that comes in. Always check the stamps on the enveloppe. For example, the money orders that were sent to me were sent from a wal-mart in minneapolis, yet the stamps on the enveloppe were from togo. A dead give away. Hopefully these tips help you and you dont get burned into years of debt and possible jail time because of some idiots looking to get rich fast off of honest people trying to make an honest living.

Read the post I put in below it lists all the government websites to file a claim, use them!!

Each week there are at least a dozen offers to work for some artist or fabric exporter or to pose as next of kin for some important, wealthy person who is deceased for the purpose of moving money through the US.

Recently my practice has been to email them back informing them of my interest but advising them of my inability to fund a wire transfer. (This was only done a couple of times.)The last one responded informing me that the cost of the wire transfer would be deducted from the "millions". Yeah, right!

Does anyone know of a link to some government agency where these things can be reported? My attempts to contact Homeland Security and other agencies have either been ignored or not acted upon because there has been not a single reply!

r.dougla,


terry william is a fraud, he also goes by the name frank williams also, and how i found out something was not right with him, was that he would send a email under terry williams, and then send one under frank williams asking the same exact thing. don't get caught up it's not worth it, especially if you are struggling.

Jeanette,

I received an email today from a Susan Smith who is the owner of SUS art world inc. Isn't that funny!

I received three international money orders that I was suppose to cash and send money to an artist name mark davis, i called the bank that the money order was from they were not able to run the numbers because it was against their policy to give out that information. What i did was go and deposited the money orders into my account and i let them sit for 2 weeks, in between that time all of them came back counterfeit, all frauds, this transaction alone could have cost me 2500.00 if i had sent that money. Mark emailed me everyday to send that money, i told him they were on hold at my bank. I finally sent him an email stating that the money orders were fraud. i told him either he had some crooked customers that didn't want to pay him his money, or he was a fraud himself. I have yet to get an email back from him.
