I received 2 Walmart Financial Services money orders issued by Travelers Express Company, payable through WF Natioanl Bank South Central, Faribault, MN. The money orders were for $1200.00 each from someone in Nigeria delivered via UPS from a party in Casco, ME. Please tell me the status of these money orders as I believe they are fraudulent. The purchaser's signatures on the money ordres are illegible. They are hand written pay to the order of me, Dana Jabush. The routing numnber on the money orders are 091900533 account number 543 92947974. I obtained the phone number for Travelers Express Money orders by searching on the web, 800-542-3590. The person that sent me the money orders is Sharon Lizbeth, Yahoo email address, sharon_honestsoul@yahoo.com. The person who sent the UPS was Spencer Allwell, 45 Camp Cedar Rd., Casco, ME 04015.

TO EVERYONE WHO RECEIVED ANY MONEY ORDERS:

Before even attempting to cash a money order or cashiers check you got from someone you don't know, CALL THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTION (if you can't go over there) whose name is on the check/money order and ask them to check whether it is good or counterfit. More than likely it will be counterfit, but sometimes the person sending you the money order/check will try to get you hooked and the first one will be real and the next one will be counterfit. If it's real, it's up to you - you can cash it and send them the money, or you can scam the scammer and keep the money to yourself. =)

P.S. If you try to cash a counterfit check/money order, they (the bank) can and probably will call the cops and they can arrest you on the spot. They will end up letting you go after you explain the situation and show them evidence you have (emails, letters, etc you exchanged with this scammer), but by calling first and checking you can save yourself from the humiliation.

Received 10 $950.00 money orders via FedEx On Friday November 11, 2005==what do I do with them if this is illegal or they are stolen?
The name of the purchaser is not legible to read. They are from Wal*Mart Financial Services payable through the Well Fargo National Bank South Central Fairbault, MN.

I was told that I would be doing invoicing and billing for the L&N Fabric and Textiles company.

Give me some direction.

i had an add on match.com and a guy who said his name was johnson philip from canton oh contacted me. he said he was a single dad, his wife having died in an accident. he said he worked for a construction company and traveled out of the country for them, currently in nigeria building an estate. we emailed each other and chatted on line, he was to come back to the states end of november and we were going to get together. his email is philip_ibro@yahoo.com. he asked me to cash some money orders for him and wire the money back via western union because he could not cash them in nigeria and he was running out of cash. i reluctantly agreed to do it. the orders came through ups from oklahoma, he said he had given them, to a friend who came to the states and the friend ups'ed them to me. i went to my bank the cash them for him and was arrested for trying to cash counterfied money orders. i was led out of my bank in handcuffs. i spent the afternoon telling an officer just how pathetic i am, to fall for this. but i told the police everything and so far they believe me. i had saved all emails and text messages and printed them out for the police. that was two days ago, since then i have had countless emails, text messages and phone calls from this guy. he even started to call my home phone and i never gave him that number. first he was being concerned and then he became threatening. my bank froze my account and i feel ashamed to go back there and try to get them to open it up. i don't even know if they will. i think i'll forget about men and get a dog instead.

Oh, here's another funny story. I got another email from someone trying to scam me few weeks ago. I ran his IP address and replied back with the info I got. I told him that I'm about to report him to his ISP (internet service provider), and let's see how long it takes before he ends up in jail. You know what he did? He actually had the balls to reply back and say "That only works in the US" and put a smiley face next to it. (The IP address was traced to somewhere in Middle East). Can you imagine the nerve of this guy?! Anyway, there are a few sites where you can report this kind of stuff, as well as an FBI fraud site. I sent him links to those sites and said I reported him, and I haven't heard from him since.

was contacted by the same Susan Art World, as well as about 10 other people in the last week. I know they are all scams, but I'm just playing along until I receive the checks. I guess I'm trying to scam the scammer. If they are outside the US, the cops can't do nothing to them. But she said the checks will be coming from the US. If they really do come from the US, you can take them to the police and they can prosecute. Also, sometimes these people take their time. They want to get you hooked and they send you a check that isn't for more than maybe a couple of thousand dollars. The check turns out to be good, so you cash it and send the person the money. Since now you trust that this person is not trying to scam you (since the 1st check was good), they send you another check for about twice the amount. This time you cash the check, send the person the money, and then it turns out that this time the check wasn't good.

I am really concerned of money orders that I have received. How can you tell if they are a fake? Rod
