i recently recieved 2 money orders one was made out to myself and a curtis williams in the amount of 1870.00 drawn off of walmart finacial service and another one made out to him in the amount of 900.00 i was told to deposit it into my account and send him the other money order to another address that he was staying at because his family is the one that sent the ones to me well needless to say i thought i was helping a friend i went to my bank and tryed to cash it i wasnt going to deposit it{thank god i didnt}my bank told me they couldnt cash it because i didnt have the funds to cover it for me to take it to walmart so i did. i walked in and went to customer service told her i recieved this money order in the mail and i wanted to know if it could be cashed, she then in turn asked for my id and called up the loss and prevention people to the front of the store and come to find out the money order was fake. The man kept my id and wont release it. ANY ADVISE ON THIS

Yesterday I signed for a UPS package, and when I openen it. It was five money orders for the amount of 950.00. Every thing looks real but the paper felt funny. I went to the bank and the bank advise me not to deposit them. But I was told to go to the check cashing and I was almost temped. But before I would do that I said to myself that I would look this info up on the internet first. And now I found you all. thank you so much. this person name is Daniel Smith and his number is 234-802-3181. The name on the package is Simile Oluwa address 4443 lousiania street
san diego ca 92116. I look up this address and the person name that appeared was Robert Conover and that number was 619-574-0992. When I called a lady answer and said I have the wrong number. Then I called back and on one answered. Then this morning a Daniel called my house and was not nice. Didn't even say good morning. Just you will recieve a check and western union nigeria.

I am feeling really stupid because today I recv'd 5 money orders for 950.00 each and they are for H & L Fabric and Textile and Terry Williams is the ceo. I am to western union the money to Oyinkan Smith 9 creek Road Ikoyi, Lagos Nigeria 23401 and to John Matthew same address. Terry Wiliams has called my house about 4 times today and then when I got home I drove to fedex and picked up the package. I then emailed Terry Williams and told him I did't want to be doing anything ilegal and he has yet to respond to me. So I am glad I went to this site to see that I am not the only one that was almost scamed. Thanks for the input from all of you. I would have been in a lot of trouble having sent all that money and then trying to repay that to the bank.

Isuppose that I am the latest victim of the MO scam this morning I received 6 MO in the amount of $950. each and my self thought that they looked real but I was very skepitical from the beginning who do you know would literally trust someone to just receive company money and take out a portion. Should have known because his title went from Managing Director to CEO

My clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of money orders which are not readily cashable outside the US {JUST BECAUSE THIS US MONEY ORDERS CAN ONLY BE CASHED WITHIN THE US} so we need someone in the states to work as our representative and assist us in processing the payments from our clients and i will pay him weekly salary{YOU WILL BE PAID 10% FOR EACH TRANSACTION AND WE NORMALLY GET PAID 3 TIMES A WEEK FROM OUR CLIENTS} All you need to do is receive this payment from our client in the states, you can call the verifying bank to confirm the funds or you can get it cashed at the bank and then deduct your weekly pay i.e 10% and forward the balance to the company down here via western union money transfer. You will keep all western union transfer receipts used and forward them to us from time to time, you will also record all transactions on your computer both offline and online in case of any emergency references. We would have told our clients to send the money directly to US via money gram but it has been a tradition for them to pay us via US MONEY ORDERS and the person that used to help us cash the MONEY ORDERS before i.e {our former representative} has been relieved.Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed at the bank, (tax charges on your account will be deducted from our pockets not yours, so you dont have to worry about that) and then deduct your salary and foward the balance to the company via money transfer method i did mention earlier on.

So all i need is to forward your information to our numerous clients in the state and they issue payment in form of MONEY ORDERS then send it via courier or mail to you.

i will need your full name,address and phone number so we can foward it to our clients and they will start making
payments to you as the company representative in the states

I WILL EMAIL YOU A LETTER OF EMPLOYMENT FROM OUR COMPANY WHICH YOU HAVE TO REPLY WITH AN ACCEPTANCE LETTER AND A SCANNED COPY OF YOUR INDENTIFICATION ATTACHED TO IT

AS SOON AS WE CONFIRM ANY PAYMENT COMING TO YOU I WILL LET YOU KNOW AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE
INFORMATION TO SEND FUNDS TO THE COMPANY VIA WESTERN UNION.

Thanks and i await your response.

MY boyfriend and I always chat on Yahoo messenger and we came arcoss a lady who said she wanted to come to the United States. She was Nigeria, and she said that she needed money to get here but she just needed some money orders cashed and to wire her the remaining amout, after taking his cut. I got online and asked her why she needed us to cash them. I said this don't sound right. WEll we didn't think about the money orders. We actually forgot all about it. We came home from the store this past friday day 11-18-05. And there was a fed ex for my boyfriend. We opened it and there was 3 postal money orders for 950.00 a piece. We kept looking at them and they looked real and they felt real. my boyfriend said well i'll go and deposit them into my account and see what happens. It been November and thanksgiving coming he got cash for one of the money orders. We thought of it as a gift, someone who was watching out for us. Cause we really needed the money. So we spent the 950.00 on bills and food. The next day he went to the bank and they bank teller told him the money orders were fake. WE WERE SHOCKED! Because we don't have the 950.00 to cover what we spent. So he went and seen the detective and gave him the fed ex evenlope. We will find out this monday what will happen. We were really disappointed, in what happened. We have to pay back the money, which we understand cause we did get cash for one of money orders. but to think that they look so real and we just couldn't believe it. So yes, they are still out there and we been hit by this scam.

Wal*Mart Financial Services 1-800-542-3590 Call them to verify if a money order is real. Mine was fradulent.
I also called Wells Fargo, customer service 480-394-3122. I called 3 different numbers, was hung up on twice. Finally a man talked to me. He could not or refused to give me any information on the wal mart checks payable through WF National Bank. He did give me the toll free Wal*Mart financial number listed above. He did say he was receiving several of these calls every day for the last week. They have 125 employees in the Wells Fargo phone customer service center. They have all been receiving these calls about fraudulent checks.

He said everyone would like to catch these guys, but they are slick. No one has been able to get their hands on a body. My fraud starting calling me 2 days ago. Yesterday the fraud called from a cell phone ? the number came up on my caller ID. 002-340-0156
All other calls have been "unavailable" I gave him a long line of BS. Said I cashed a whole handful of checks. One didn't have any identification. Asked him to send me contact info with the serial number of the check per US priorty mail. I finally hung up on him in mid sentence. Made it sound like a phone malfunction.
He said he was in Mexico, and would be back in the states in a month. He sounded like a Mexican. Whatever he was telling the noise in the background, sounded spanish. I could hear roosters crowing, goats or sheep bleating & a bunch of kids. He's called a dozen or so time since, all "unavailable" calls. Don't know why he let that one phone number slip in on my caller ID.

The fraud left a message on my answering machine about 4 AM or so. He told me to look in my mailbox immediately. Believe me, I walked out to my mailbox to make sure some crazy Mexican hadn't dropped off a letter in the middle of the night. I had a bad feeling just for a few moments. I do have several more e-mails from Mrs_ Moore. I haven't looked at them yet.

I don't know if I should tell the fraud to go F@@#$ himself, or if I should tell him I booked a flight to the Bahama's with an unidentified $2000.
Joyce
ps. for all I know this site is maintained by the frauds Mexican family. Forget Nigeria, it's a bunch of Mexican's. Mexican's are hard workers. I'm betting they stole a Wal Mart money order machine somewhere & are furiously making copies. Where is Nigeria in relation to Mexico? I sure don't know my geography. Some how they are sending the checks from Nigeria with Nigerian stamps.

2005-11-16 21:50:45 -
Same thing, except this time it was Mr.Moore instead of Mrs. $3000 Walmart money order. I actually emailed him and told him I would not be selling him my pet before the money order even got here. I had a bad feeling about the situation from the start.I guess he won't be sending me his return address to get his fake MO back!


2005-11-16 21:35:50 -
I just received the same thing everyone else has been getting. A Wal Mart money order drawn on WF National Bank South Central, Faribault, MN. This one is for $2000.

I knew the sender was a fraud. One of the hundreds who send notes to pet sellers, saying they will send you $2000-$4000 for a $500 -$800 pup or kitten. When you receive the check, you are supposed to immediately send the excess to their agent.

I decided to play with a fraud who called herself Mrs. Moore. She contacted me the end of Oct. for a kitten. Funny thing, this check has a July date on it, 3 months prior to her contact. Then no contact info with the check itself. Only contact over the internet. Her frist request was for my bank routeing number, to route me the money. I told her I would only take a postal money order, sent priorty mail by the US postal service. She did none of that, and just spent a few cents on some Nigerian stamps. Too bad, I would have liked to have seen her at least pay for a priorty mail.

TDear Joyce, many thanks for your mail, for the shipping i have my own shipping agent who will come pick the cat up at your door. but right now as i told you i am out of state to west africa and my client who will be making the payment for me, told me that he will prefare to send the money directly to your bank account, that it will be more faster, and also he insist that if he will be sending the money to your bank account he will prefare well fargo bank, that he his more familiar with that bank, and he said that the only way which he can protect his investment.
