I also received 3 counterfeit money orders supposedly issued by WalMart and payable through WF Nat Bank, Faribault, MN, for $1000.00 each. I recognized the scam before I accepted to help the imposter who contacted me through an internet dating service. This is a common scam of the Nigerians to exploit real money from desperate supporters of their lies. Always contact the "payable thru" bank written on the check before trying to deposit or cash it. There are other obvious signs that the FBI can point out to you. Please send every agency affilliated with these scam artists a scam alert, as well as the FBI for tracking.

I just read a few of these comments and they are hitting very close to home. I recently had a female that i had been chatting with on the internet dupe me into cashing money orders for her. I'm facing various reprocussions and am searching for help, answers, anything. Should anyone out there have helpful tips or anything, please let me know. I'll continue to check these comments, but if anyone would like to, they can email me at mriley7@yahoo.com. Thanks for any information.

B. Brooks... You need to read what you wrote stop and think a moment. Do you really think any company would have to do what they are asking you to do???? THINK ABOUT IT! Just be glad your bank was smart enough to know that the are fake.

I received 3 money orders from somone named Lance Larkin in Poway, CA. They are for $2300.00 each. They came in an evelope by there selves. I tried to cash one at Wal-Mart and was told they were fake. They paid $4.30 to send me fake m.o's? I got an e-mail from vono textiles telling me that they know I got the the m.o.'s and to cash them and keep my 10 percent plus what it costs to send them thiers. Also keep $100.00 to open a bank account for future m.o.'s. I called this number I found on this site to check the m.o. and found out that they had already been cashed in april. I got these late september. They are dated 09/16/05. I e-mailed vono textiles and asked them if it was true and i am still waiting for a response.

Sue I can't believe that your blaming your money problems on the money order scam. Sounds like you just a dumb ass when it comes to money. You stated your an honest credit worth person but bailed on your debits, and by what you stated you were already in the hole..they should take your home and sell to pay your debit your loser try to get your act together an stop blaiming everyone else.

the problem of AFRICAN scamming the white americans,is due to what the white people have done waback during the slave trade,they sold the blacks,made use of their resources,which is now turned into money made for all things,part of the money is what they are indirectly taking back in the wrong way as well,but most innocent people will be involved in it.

I had never even heard of such a thing until it happened to me personally. On July 16th someone purchased quite a number of my auctions on an auction site - and the total invoice was 1,800.00 - lots of electronics and clothing and shoes. A few days later I got 2 MO's - USPS ones - and I took them to my bank, got cash for them and went on to distribute the money to the people that I was selling on consignment for. Alot of the auctions I have are for items that are given to me for consignment sales - I then take a small percentage for my time and usage of my computer, etc. So I went and got a bunch of money orders - real ones by the way - and paid off all the people. That was on August 8th - on August 23rd I closed my account with my former bank as I had already informed then in JUNE that I was going to after I got into a major pissing match with one of the officers after doing business with them for over 12 years. Now comes August 25th - two days after closing the account and a phone call from the former bank telling me that I owed them 1800.00

After dealing with this and dealing with it and finally getting a summons for small claims court I just said to hell with it and borrowed the money and paid for it.

Ironically enough I had JUST gone to court for my first hearing with a bankruptcy trustee since I had to declare bankruptcy for debts over 18,000.00 due to online fraud stemming from 2 years ago.

I just sent an email to the former credit union telling them that they really should be made to take SOME type of responsibility for teaching their employees what MO's are supposed to look like.

The government gives millions of dollars away in welfare, disaster relief, etc etc and wont do a damn thing about honest, credit worth people getting ripped off. I am glad I still have my home - thats all I have left. I finally managed to get a newer car - an 04 - for 21 percent interest. Hmm, I used to be able to qualify for 4 percent.
