I just received 4 money orders in the amount of $950 each. They came with a return address of Williams Wilson, 5412 Southgate Road, Cambridge OH 43725. The numbers on them are

091900533:44789079975 90
44789079985 90
44789079995 90
44789079955 90
44789079965 90

I have no idea who or why these were sent to me and just would like the address to return them to so you can investigate this occurance.

Well I havent yet heard from James Bryant after I sent them a reply stating I received their email and was taking them to the bank for safekeeping until I further hear from them and then I sent a 2nd email after coming back from the bank asking what do with these and if they were real or not.... So I then emailed James Bryant and told him that I was awaiting for response back from Bank of America for the legit of these numbers on the traveler's cheques. I guess I wont be hearing back from him and these cheques are still in the envelope that they came in and I dont know what to do with them or who to turn these over to... FBI, United State Postal Service or even our lcoal media for investigations. I just dont know but these guys have got to be stopped before they hurt anyone else cause not everybody will be keen enough like some of us were to ask more questions after receiving them... True the extra funds would help us sooo much right now but I dont want to do anything illegal and just be patient that Lord will guide us in the right direction and help us overcome our financial woes in a different manner.....

Today I received 9 American Express Traveler's Cheques from a Richard Dallibar located at 3 1942 Fife Rd in Christina Lake B.C. VOH 1E3
and signed for the receipt by the United States Postal Service.

I emailed the Bank of America requesting for the legit of these cheques and forwarded the numbers of each traveler's cheque and then opted to see if there was a website on Susan's Art World and this came up. I cannot believe it. I was almost taken again. I have $500 cheques of 9 ea totally $4,500.00 and lo behold I dont have those kind of funds to cover in my account had if I deposited these and forwarded them their 90% and kept my 10% as per their instructions on their email for an ad for representations in the U.S. I just am so-o-o shocked AGAIN. Peopl can be so cruel and rob others with such painful results on us. I thank Heavenly Father for looking out for us and that our bank looked out for our best interest. Sharon Lutz

If anyone receives United States Postal Service money orders bring them to your local post office along with a copy of an email letter that the scammer sent you and ask to speak with the postmaster there. The postal service has investigations open and are looking for fraud money orders and they are very easy to spot, too. If you try to cash them you can be arrested because it is a federal offense. But if you submit them to the postmaster first and tell them your story they'll start an investigation to catch the crook that sent them to you. (I did this last week and they called a couple of times since to give me updates on the case and to thank me and let me know that I did the right thing) Also, if you receive threatening emails from them (even regarding a lawyer and especially if they mention being able to find you) and you feel as if you maybe in some type of physical danger, call the cops right away. Just tell them your story and about the money orders. They do have investigations into all of this and this is exactly what was told to me last week by the postmaster themselves.

ps. Be prepared to show copies of any emails you might have received from them, this is your insurance policy that you do not get blamed for the fakes. The more info you turn in the better.

I received 12 money orders totaling up to about 10,000 and I cashed one of them in a local check cashing store. I am so scared of what's gonna happen to me. It was just recently so it hasn't come back yet to bite me but I'm so scared I'll go to jail when it does. Has anyone ever cashed one or some, and tell me the outcome. I know if you cash them at your bank you'll owe the bank that money. But what about a check cashing store?

Here was my reply to Shawn Cowser:

You are a fraud. It is a well known fact that any bank does currency exchange. Do you think I was born yesterday???? Quit trying to scam people out of their money because you are too damn lazy to actually work for a living. Get a life and don't bother sending me anymore of your crap e-mails.

Here is another one from teh Sus Art World in Liverpool, but this time it is owned by a Shawn Cowser, not Susan Bryant. Here is the letter, and here is the e-mail address it came from: shawn_cowser002@msn.com


Sus Art World
112 st. Mary's road,
liverpool L192 JG,
UNITED KINGDOM
Hello!!
My name is Shawn cowser, I am an artist with my Wife sherie cowser,
and
we are the owners of Sus Art World .I live in Liverpool United Kingdom,
with
my two kids, four cats, one dog and my assistant Susan Brian. It is
definitely a full house, I have been doing artwork since I was a small
child, That gives me about 23 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 6 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
money orders and checks, which is difficult for me to cash here in
liverpool
here in the United Kingdom, I am looking for a representative in the
states
who will be working for me as a par-time worker and I will be willing
to pay
10% for every transaction, which wouldn’t affect your present state of
work,
someone who would help me receive payments from my customers in the
states i
mean someone that is responsible, reliable and credible, cause the cost
of
coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive, I am
working on
setting up a branch in the state, so for now I need a representative in
the
united state who will be handling the payment aspect, These payments
are in
money order or checks and they would be specifically drafted to you in
your
name and sent to you ,so all you need do is cash the money order or the
check 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 will get involved when our Money
gets
missing, It would not cost you any amount to receive payments which
will be
sent to you via FedEx, ups or any other credible courrier from my
business
partners and associates ,If you are interested, please get back to me
as
soon as possible via email with your full name, address, direct contact
telephone number and a scanned copy of any identity card of you, it
doesnt
have to have your ssn number it could be a video club card or anything
we
are just interested in your picture and just very little basic
information
about you for record purposes.
Regards
Shawn Cowser
