Here is one of thousands of the same fake money order reports below.

Home › Case Summaries › Browse by Category › Summary Triffin v. Travelers Express Company, Inc.
370 N.J. Super. 399, 851 A.2d 667 (App. Div. 2004)
June 29, 2004
MONEY ORDERS; COUNTERFEITS—Where a check cashing agency ignores clear warning on a money order that the instrument will not be honored if its signature is forged and where the money order gives information on how to verify it’s legitimacy, the check cashing agency bears any loss from a counterfeit money order.

Various check cashing agencies assigned whatever causes of action they may have obtained after cashing seventeen money orders which were later dishonored. The assignee then brought suit against the money order company. The company asserted that the money orders were stolen and the signatures appearing on the money orders were unauthorized. It moved for summery judgment, arguing that not only were the seventeen money orders stolen, but also once it became aware of the theft, it stopped payment on the stolen money orders. Those same money orders were presented to and cashed by the original assignors.

In response to the motion, all the assignee submitted was his own certification describing the appearance of the money orders. The lower court granted the money order company’s motion for summary judgment because there were no material disputed facts: the money orders were stolen, were signed by an unauthorized person, and cashed.

The Appellate Division affirmed, holding that when a lost or stolen money order, unsigned by the purchaser, is later presented by a thief or finder, the issuing bank is not liable. There was no question that the money order company was the drawer in the transaction and not the issuing bank. Its name was embossed on the money orders and it was specifically identified as the “Issuer/Drawer.” Consequently, in a normal transaction, the money order company was intended to be the drawer. Here, however, the assignee had disregarded the significance of the transactions between the thieves and his assignors, as well as the undisputed fact that none of the money orders contained an authorized signature. To be an effective signature, an instrument must be executed by a party with the intent to authenticate the instrument. Although the money order company’s name is embossed on the money orders alongside the words “Issuer/Drawer,” the remainder of the document clearly indicated that the additional signature of the purchaser was required to authenticate the writing. Since there was no dispute that the money orders in question were stolen and that the signatures were not made by purchasers, the Court held that the orders did not contain authorized signatures.

The Court also held that even if the law had placed liability on the company whose signature had been forged, the assignee would still have needed to show that each respective cashing agency was a holder in due course. A holder in due course is one who cashes a check and has no knowledge or evidence of forgery or alteration to it. The Court held that this was not the case here. The evidence indicated that the checks were counterfeit and the cashing agencies had ignored the clear warning on each check. Each had a statement on the reverse side warning that it would not be paid if it were forged, and that recourse was only against the presenter. Furthermore, each order stated that information concerning the order could be obtained from the company, whose address and toll free telephone number were given. Thus, a simple telephone call would have revealed that the money orders were stolen. The Court found it relevant that the agency claiming to be a holder in due course was a check cashing company. Since failure to follow the directions on the checks would have likely precluded any holder from claiming such status, it especially precluded a company in the business of cashing checks. The very appearance of these money orders, which had unmatched serial numbers, should have made the assignors suspicious. Accordingly, the Court held that it was commercially unreasonable for a check cashing agency to fail to make such observations and to fail to take precautionary measures. As a result, the original assignors, each in the business of cashing checks, could not claim holder in due course status when they blindly cashed the instruments.

processing expenses and to pay tax in your country(if any) upon successful
confirmation of this funds in your bank account. Thereafter, all the
related legal documents will be destroyed and we part ways.

unsuccessful in locating her relatives) so that the fruit of her labour
will not be in vain. All I require from you is your honest cooperation
to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be

From: "Mrs. Pearl Cole" Add to Address Book Add Mobile Alert
Subject: Dear Friend,


I just got this ne today...Has anyone every received this one??



Dear Friend,
Greetings to you in the most wonderful name of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ. His richest blessings shall be upon you forever.
I am Mrs Pearl Vaat Cole,I am 51 years old from Netherlands,i am deaf
and
suffering from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my
brain,from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and
it
is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me
that
i may not live for the next two months,this is because the cancer
stage
has gotten to avery bad stage. I was brought up from a motherless
babies home, I married to my late husband for twenty years without a
child.My husband died in a fatal motor accident.Before his death we
were true
Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry,I sold all my
inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of $18.5million
dollars
with a Security Company.
Presently, this money is still with them and the management just
wrote
me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for keeping
it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to
receive it on my behalf since I can not come over because of my
illness or
they get it confisticated.Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital
where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I
have
since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have
only a few months to live.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any
organisation of your choice and distributed each year among the
charity
organization,the poor and the motherless babies home where i come from.
I want
you God fearing, to also use this money to fund churches,orphanages
and
widows.
I took this decision, before i rest in peace because my time will
soon
be up. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact
of
the Security Company.I will also issue you a letter of authority that
will prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me
that
you will act accordingly as I stated herein. I shall wait at your
prayerful reply.
Thanking you in His precious name.
Yours in His Service
Pastor. P.Vaat Cole,

Nevertheless I am Mrs.Ellen Sherman, aged 49 years, the wife of Major Doncan Sherman, Chief Security Officer and Aide-de–camp to the exiled president Charles Tailor of Liberia .As a result of the on-going problem in my country, I am saddled with problems of my ill-health of protracted diabetes and high blood pressure which is getting of increase in the recent times, more importantly getting a trust worthy individual abroad to receive the sum of US$13.2million on our behalf which I intend to invest in your company.Due to this crises presently in my city Monrovia our home town, I managed to sneak myself and my son David 19 years of age my daughters Gloria 22 yaers out of Monrovia to Dakar senegal for safety. We were sneaked into Dakar Senegal through the land boarder by the help of some government militant group.After the killing of my husband by the rebels, we decided to come down here to Dakar senegal to secure the this deposit deposited by my husband and to further look for a trust worthy individual abroad to receive these deposit which has being deposited before he was eventually killed by the heartless rebels.I feel confident therefore to introduce myself to you based on this problem and our present condition as all our foreign contacts and connections got lost during this crises, all properties burnt by the rebels.I am desperately in need to move and re-locate this huge deposit to your country for safe keeping as this is the only wealth remaining for the future survival and well being of my large family.For your percentage for assistance, a negotiable percentage will be discussed as soon as I receive your response based on this plea for your assistance as our lives are highly in danger due to this problem.I pray and plead for your help.Please endavour to email me back for further clarifications over this issue.God bless you as you respond to my plea for assistance.
