ALMOST SCAMMED. SOMEONE SENT ME $5000 in Wal-Mart cashiers checks to rent an apartment. They wanted me to send part of the money Western Union to the shipper of thier household goods in France. I acuallay sent the money, but cancelled the order when I found this site. I will just have to wait and see if the money orders are fakes, which I am 100% sure they are. It did not seem right. I'm glad I found this site.

I was approched by someone from the UK concerning a car I wanted to sell. The person wants to send me money for the car and shipping. After some questions as to why they could not just send payment to the shipping company and mine seperate. I finally agreed to accept what they wanted me to do but I still have questions in my mind. These are walmart financial services money orders by Travelers express. How can I check before I even take them to the bank. I would like to be spared the embarrassement and jail.

I also recieved an email from Mike Perkins. I faxed the contract but will, destroy any money orders I recieve. I thought something was fishy when they did not offer any telephone number. I searched for the company online, IMED, but did not find any info, I even went as far as calling businesses on the same street as they claimed to have their headquarters, but no one knew of the company. Thanks Tony for your post.
