For MoneyGram money orders, call 1-800-542-3590. There is an automated system you can walk through and put your money order numbers in. It will likely tell you the money order was previously cashed for a small amount.

That means it was originally a legit money order that someone reprinted and now it's bogus. Trash it.

I haven't seen any interest by MoneyGram, UPS, local police, or FBI to track these things. If someone else has had success, let me know.

Does anyone know if there is a real person in Lagos/Abuja named Mary Adekoya,who works at CBN or employee of ICPC whose name is Abdul Williams. I am pretty sure I have been hoodwinked. I have every mailing I was sent.
I cannot seem to get the EFCC to contact me.

how to tell if my moneygram money order is real?


2008-09-03 11:53:29 -
I have a hard time to believe that they can actualy create fake money orders!! How is this possible?? I just received a Money Gram Money Order via FedEx, to cash, and deduct certain amounts for "sign up" bonus, + supplies. The company is from the UK, "selling" computer products. I replied to their ad on Craigslist, looking for a position as an admin. I am not a dummy, and will not even try to cash this money order. As Marc DiGiuseppe commented below, all these scam artists are preying on people looking for a job. It is hard enough to get an interview, we do not need all these scammers get our hopes up, by promising legitamely sounding jobs!!
Everyone should listen to that little voice coming from inside that tells us; if it sounds too good to be true, it is!!!!
Be aware of: Bill Lovejoy from UK, and Dmitry from Jettuning LTD, from Moscow, Russia!!!!!
