These people (if anyone would even call these things people) think that other's believe there scams? I knew from the begining that the person who sent me one of these bogus money orders, was a fraud. The person goes by the name of janet lake, here address when looked up by mapquest was in the middle of the thames river in london. When the mail envelope arrived, it was written as though from outsid the U.S., but had a local (Oakland CA) post mark, and the issuing merchant was written as though Springfield VA (I think these are both a bit away from the thames river). I still have the M.O. infront of me, the scammers have so many scams going on at once, they do not remember who they have sent them to or when. This person has a yahoo IM listed as janet_lake_2005 janet_lake_2005@yahoo.co.uk. The real shameful thing though is that some unknowingly people will send the money before getting these things checked out. Another scammer is on yahoo IM, goes by promangel2, these scammer will send pics of single men or women to personals sights, try to sound like they are from places like Iowa, but do not know anything about the town they say they are from, like the major interstate roadway in the middle of town.

Received five $950 US Postal Money Orders from a Brian McEdwards -- mailed from UK -- for a holiday rental. Only corresponds by email - brianmcedwards@yahoo.co.uk. Claims he/she works for UNICEF and that UNICEF is paying for holiday and asked me to send nearly $3000 back to UK via Western Union -- to his travel agent Stephen Brown at 38, Fabian Road, London, SW6 7TZ -- so he could pay for his flight to Carribean and his father's hospital bills. Think he is tied into another scam using this email - susan dandrigde also trying to send money for holiday rental, this time via FedEx from Toronto. Beware!

I have received 4 money orders supposedly drawn on WF National Bank So. Central Faribault, MN. Wal Mart Financial Services was the issuing agent. I was emailed from an ad I placed on Craig's List looking for tenants for an apt. I received 3 bogus inquiries with this one the only one to actually send me money orders. He also called me from a bogus phone that said he was in MN when he told me he was from UK. I was instructed to deposit these money orders today and immediately send him $1800 by Western Union so he could get his plane ticket to come to the States. His email addy is wam_tex25@yahoo.com
The other scammers addys are marson_chick2@yahoo.com and she says she is from Amsterdam The other is wonderfulsoul2@yahoo.co.uk. Beware of all these scammers.

I have received two "fake" money orders from Wal Mart Financial Services.
They supposedly have been co-ordinated through China Metallurgical Import & Esport Corporation.
The contact person listed is Justin Jones, out of London, England.
Please contact me regarding this situation.

I received an email from a "supposedly" textile and fabrics company that the person inherited from his late dad. I had suspicions to this email because the person had awful grammar and punctuation. I kept investigating the "money transfer scams" through google and the websites advise you that its a scam to send money through western union and keep a portion to yourself. After I emailed back telling him its a scam he had already mailed me the package through FedEx. I was already scared i gave him my home address and phone number. I didnt give him any of my financial personal information. That person seemed very anxious and very insistent in telling me the company is real. He kept saying "God Bless You" at the bottom of his emails. I told im to stop emailing me and I would report his check to the FBI and the Secret Service. Today I received the checks, I saw that there was no return address. I opened up the envelope and it contained 6 checks in the amount of 925 dollars each. They looked fake and it came from a bank named WF National Bank. Those Walmart checks looked like they were printed from the computer. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS THEY ARE FAKE FAKE FAKE. ESPECIALLY IF YOU GET THEM FROM A DATING SERVICE. THIS IS THE EMAIL OF THE PERSON WHO EMAILED ME AFTER I POSTED INFORMATION ABOUT LOOKING FOR A JOB. DHEBRAH@YAHOO.COM
