I have had an international customer approach me about 6 months ago to buy a lot of dvds from my online store. I told him where to send the money orders too and 6 months later he has 8 of them from the same walmart financial services that everyone seems to be talking about here. Besides calling the number on the back is there any other way to verify that these are legitimate? I have this mans phone number/ aol email address/ and the package did come from where he says he is. He has not asked me to send any money back to him or anything like that and he has also not asked me to send the products before checking on the money orders autenticity. So what a conundrem Im in lol. I dont want to deposit them into my bank without knowing for sure cause that will be a 28$ charge for me on each returned one.

you all be careful,everytime i try to give advise on how to stop scammers,my letter gets removed from this site.good luck and watch who you trust


2005-11-08 12:38:10 -
don't worry about the threats,lawbreakers rarely deal with actual law enforcement,if you can,retrieve the ip address attached and let them know you have it.thats why many use yahoo,excite,hotmail,ect.,because its difficult to trace,but it can be done,just email them through your regular mail and tell then you can't recieve thier email to send it regular.they are so arrogant that they usually will do it,then turn it over to law enforcement.


2005-11-08 12:33:32 -
its good to see people are finally waking up and verifying these payments.thats the only way to stop them,make them spend their money and don't follow through with the deal,they lose it all and you get the last laugh.

My scammer tried to send $5700 worth of fake USPS cashiers checks. Luckily, I have a friend who works for me from the USPS and he laughed when he saw the fakes. I turned everything over to the postmaster. I tried to sell a bicycle on www.mtbr.com. Please be ware of this scam!!!

Well my scammer goes under caring_4_uall on yahoo, and his game is like all the rest of them. I received 4 us postal money orders valued at $750 each, told to keep $500. Then split the remainder up and wire to a King McJonathan and Justin McJonathan in Nigeria. I almost played the fool 'til the M.O. actually came to my house. Then this fool keeps discouraging me from taking them to a local post office. The gist is CARING_4_UALL on yahoo is a scammer, and dont fall for his gimmicks.

I have MARKET all my art works & galleries to private companies in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) and other parts of the world.

I'm always facing serious difficulties when it comes to PAYMENTS, This is because most of my customers in AMERICA are always offering to pay me with U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE, And it is very difficult for me to cash U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE HERE in LONDON, This is Because The United Kingdom Government does not permit the usage of U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHQUE HERE IN LONDON.

If you accept this offer, you shall be receiving 10% commission as your interest for each transaction, I will instruct all my customers to raise MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S on your name and send it to your address, Then when you receive the MONEY ORDERS and cash them, you will deduct 10% from the total money as your commission, and send the balance to me here in LONDON, This project is 100% risk free and it is legal from the your Government, if you are interested, kindly send me the below information's:

1. Your Complete Full Names.
2. Your Residential Address.
3. Your Telephone Number or Your Mobile Phone Number for easy comnunication
4. Age and Occupation.

Thanks for finding time to read my proposal.

A GOOD SCAM COUNTER-ATTACK

When I knew that this was a scam, I play with him like nothing was wrong, it was very funny and very sadistic ejejeje. I pess him off when I e-mail him and I insult his all country (Nigeria) telling him about its startving people and the poor economy of that country. So this person e-mail me back, angry and telling me why I'm saying this..he get pess off lol. I tell him that nobody from that country will compare to me, a person with higher education, good economic statues and respect..I tell this person that in fact I feel pity of the Nigerian peopla and that 2500 that I send to western union was a charity cause. He get mad and he reply me back why I was such a rascist person.

P.s= Cybermates, the 2500 dollars short didn't really upsetting me cause my family is rich and like I was saying, the bank stop charging that amount cause of the police report so I came with the torch of the victory in to the top.

you have to be pretty damn stupid,greedy of both to fall for this.as lond as idiots like this lot run around on the net,the scammers will pester the rest of us.all money orders can be verified,wal-mart money oreders have a circle that changes colors when you hold a finger over it.stop being stupid and then crying poor me when they lock you up for check fraud,you knew damn well you wanted more money than you asked for,you can't be that stupid,nobody can,but yet,here you all are in your whiney glory crying about how stupid you are so everyone else knows who to get over on.in other words,wake up and join the real world where hard work will get you what you want,not trying to pull scams on known scammers.one guy even said he won after he sent some money because they didn't get it all,dumdass,wait till the bank demands the money back,there's your laugh,stupid!
