I just received a cashiers check that was drawn up from the bank of america and i am not sure if i should go and cash it and im not sure what to tell the person who sent it to me. The people who sent it to me where from MIller Textiles but when i was reading an ad from someone who was warning people about fraud their ad sounded identical and now reading all of this is making me concerned. So please send me any information that you know i am a college student trying to make it and i don't need to be in jail so please send me your input

After a little research, it appears the money order scam has taken on a new twist.

I have been corresponding with this "woman" over the web. Admitedly not the best of practices. The new twist is that she was not asking for the difference to be mailed back, but rather for me to cash the money orders and send the whole amount back.

Supposedly this was from her late father's estate distribution and she was paid by money order. She said she would send them so I said ok go ahead, gave her my work address (not that stupid to give out home addy) and lo and behold I am now holding what amounts to 4500.00 (total in 3 money orders).

Do I even dare to cash them and not send the money for at least 45-90 days or just go on down to the local FBI office?


2006-05-23 18:08:07 -
How can one tell if a money order has been faked or forged?
An accquaintence wants me to cash 3 money orders and I am more than just a little concerned since the recourse is against the person trying to cash them.
Any & all assistance is GREATLY appreciated.

I received four $925.00 money orders on Wallmart Financial and they wanted me to take 15% and send them the rest. I put them in the bank and waited for them to clear. They all came back. Thank God that I did not send any money out based upon these things.

My name is Bankole Adeola, and I am an artist.I live in United Kingdom,with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life. It is definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives me about 29 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils. I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer.I have been selling my art for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines.I have sold in galleries and to private collectors from all around the world.I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans,they are always offering to pay with a CASHIER CHECK THAT IS WRITTEN IN US BANKS,which is difficult for me to cash here in United Kingdom.
I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a partime worker and i will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction,which wouldnt affect ur present state of work,someone who would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states.i mean someone that is responsible and reliable,cause the cost of coming to the
state and getting payments is very expensive,i am working on setting up a branch in the states,so for now i need a representative in the united states who will be handling the payment aspect. These payments are in form of money order or cashier check and they would come to you
in your name, so all you need do is cash it deduct your percentage and wire the rest back. But the problem i have is trust,But i have my way of getting anyone that gets away with our money,i mean the FBI branch in Washington gets involved.
It wouldnt cost you any amount,you are to receive payments which will be sent to u by fedex or usps from my customers, which would come in form of a money order,cashier check then u are to cash it and send the cash to me via moneygram money transfer all charges will be deducted from the money.
If you are interested,please get back to me as soon as
possible.
Regards.

Hi I would like everyone to know that this scam thing is very real.How do I know,Well I fell for it and now I owe my bank 10 000 dollars :-( I recieved a message that said I could make extra money and I thought it was lagit and I was so excited.The guy was so poite and he sounded so clean.When I recieved my first payment I recieved western union money orders they looked so real,my bank didn't even question them.The guy told me he needed someone to take care of his customers because of the language barrier but I should have known when i recieved my first phone call,I couldn't understand a word he was saying,anyway I fell for it so PLEASE never answer an email about making money or if you are selling something always be sure the funds clear before giving the buyer the item.

Hello,

I want to report that someone emailed me that
I won the lottery in the internet. They sent me 5
$ 500.00 travelers check should worth 2,500.00
the checks have Thomas Cook's face & a mastercard
logo written in the middle of the check. They call
the mastercard just to verify and its definitely
not real. My question is where can I send this
checks? The name of the person is Robert Fawler
Clark & the person who sent the checks who I think
lives in London,Europe is Mr. Kennedy Amadi.They ask
me after cashing the check to mail it to Mr.
patrique Pedro Ifae whose address is at Madrid,Spain.

What is wrong with these people. Thank god for this site. I deposited a money order from Andy Winston who was purchasing something from me. I was a little leary about it so I looked on line this am. Sure enough the bank was WF National Bank Fairbault,MN. The bank has the money order, anyone know what happens now? Obviously I won't spend the money but it is at the bank. Any info would be great.
