I am soooo crabby I was almost scammed I questioned the Walmart money orders I got yesterday for they were $1000 each and the bed I was selling was only $400 so I started asking talking to people then came across this site..I am soooo happy I didnt cash anything. I am wondering can they catch these people?
BEWARE OF larry wood

User susanartwork001@walla.com appears to be the criminal. Administrator of Internet Society of Isreal was notified. This criminal should be in custody soon.

I was on a web site when a John Rollandes starting writing me.He asked me if I would cash some money orders for him. I told i wouldn't because it didn't feel right.Then I found this web site by yahooing his name.I am glad that I told him no as there is someone else that he had fooled. Thank You to the ones that add their stories. You saved another one from getting ripped off.

Thank you all for getting the scoop. I attempted to access them on the internet, and this page came up. I knew it was suspicious, as I have gotten an e-mail a day stating I have been found to be the beneficiary of millions of dollars; some family died in a plane crash, and I am the only living relative. Needless to say, a lot of these "relatives" lived in Nigeria or some other country in Africa, but mostly from Nigeria. This is another scam, don't fall for it. Don't send any information over the internet, make any inter-continental calls, overseas or whatever. How do these sleep at night. Probably very comfortable, since they seem to be getting rich, scamming. Thanks for the tip.

I unknowingly cashed money six walmart money orders for Jon Kalo totaling $5550. I am at risk of losing my job and I am being investigated for cashing fraudulent checks. I sent $5000 dollars to Nigeria. I had no clue, no indication. I wish that I had not been so foolish. I did not even complete a backround on the company I was so in need for a p/t job.

My daughter has received four money orders for the amount of $2ooo.oo each they are from a name I can not make out but the address is LYMAN STREET #8925 QUEENS VILLAGE NY 11428. Could this possible be one of those fraud money orders. If so what do we do with these?

My Boyfriend just got four Walmart Money Orders - to be cashed and send the money to England. They look incredibly real - but he "googled" the name they were to be sent to and found out it was a common scam. THe name was "Dolly Martin". They must have thought he was a "BIG BOOB" to send money to that one - LOL

Almost a victim! I was selling puppies, got a weird phone call where the operator relayed what each of us was saying.I thought it was a deaf person, now I believe they didn't speak english and the operator was interpreting. The Phone call came from something like ITP Relay. They asked for my email to write me questions- I gave it. Then I got a weird email- same as everyone, pay extra for item, shipper will come, mail them the balance of money orders to UK after I cash them. I did get them but didn't cash them. (by then I had confirmed the scam). My advice, they change their names, email addresses and stories but the scam is the SAME. Listen to your gut, if it sounds weird and too good to be true IT IS. I never have had anything like this happen to me- Let's all spread the word to everyone we know- the more people we reach, the fewer they can scam.

Hi Dear,

My name is Susan Bryant, I am an artist with my husband Tommy Bryant, We own SUS ART WORLD INC in London (United Kingdom) I live in London United Kingdom, with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my husband Tommy Bryant. 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 art brush 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 MONEY ORDER/TRAVELER'S CHEQUES, which is difficult for me to cash here in London United Kingdom.

I am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 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 and reliable, because 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 STATES OF AMERICA who will be handling the payment aspect for our company.

These payments are in MONEY ORDERS/TRAVELER'S CHEQUES and they would come to you in your name if you are willing to assist as a representative, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and WESTERN UNION Charges then wire the rest back.

But the problem I have is trust, I have made arrangement with the FBI in Washington, that if anybody gets away with my money they will definitely get hold with the person, and the person will go to JAIL for LOOTING my funds, you are to receive the MONEY ORDERS/TRAVELER'S CHEQUES PAYMENT which will be sent to you by the FEDEX or UPS from my business partners, which would come in form of a MONEY ORDER/TRAVELER'S CHEQUES then you are to take it to your bank account to enable you cash it and send the money cashed for the MONEY ORDERS to me via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER AGENT.

NOTE: All charges of the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER will be deducted from the money, so you are rest assured that you wouldn't spend a dime out of your personal money.

If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible via e-mail or phone.

N: B, Please send to me the listed information below:

1. Full Name
2. Home Address
3. Mobile and Home Phone Number
4. 0ccupation
5. Age and Sex
6. Marital Status

I will need your home address, so that I will send the MONEY ORDERS/TRAVELER'S CHEQUES to you via FedEx or overnight shipment.

Thanks for your assistant and God bless.

Sincerely.

Susan & Tommy Bryant
SUS ART WORLD INC.

Warning to all. Never make transactions or business anything from the internet especially coming from UK or Nigeria. These are all employment scam. I was one of the victim of this fake and fraud employment business.Be aware of the person name Jon Kalo, he is in textile business in UK and he does business in Nigeria.

At first, I receive the money orders and I deposited it to my bank and after a week later the checks got cleared somehow therefore, I withdrew the money from my account ($4,000)and send it the names He provided to me over to Nigeria through Western Union. A week later the bank called me and said that the money order checks were bad and were returned to them; I was told that those money order checks were fake and there are some sort of fraud activity. So now I owe the bank money for that amount. Just in case you come across with him, his name is Jon Kalo,
email: JonKalo2000@yahoo.com

We are selling a car on Craiglist.com for $3,300. The prospective buyer wanted to pay by cashiers check and said he would send his "shipper" to pick-up the car after we received payment. We are in Vegas (land of the scams) and he said he was in San Francisco. (He writes like a foreigner.) We received 2 checks of $3,500 each. We saw all the scam warnings prior to cashing the checks. We know they are fake, but we want to help catch these people. Does anyone know if they actually send a "shipper" to pick-up the cars? Or do they just want the balance sent to them? My guess is there is no "shipper". But if there is a sting would be AWESOME! Be on the look out for the alias Abby Baker. Our hearts go out to all who got burned.
