Received MO from Walmart in the amount of $2500.
MO number: 54211944286, this was posted from Republic of Benin in Africa. This was a forgery but the actual MO is real, seems walmart employees may be involved.

i recieved a mo from a gril from roomates.com wanting to move into my vavcant room. she keept saying the mo was on the way. i did recieve them from walmart financial services. there was much more money then i was asking for. so i looked up wf national bank and found this site and called the 800 number. she stated that money orders do not come from walmart in this amount. be careful they looked real.

I recieved several MO from a guy who got my contact information from Monter.com (very scarey). Saying that he needed accountants to handle payments for a company called M & J Textiles in the UK. He claimed that he needed me to recieve payments from clients that were paying for textiles recieved and was not able to recieve payments in the UK. These were Walmart money orders @ $1000. I was to cash the MO orders keep 10% and the fees for western union and send him the rest to, guess where? NIGERIA. I did cash the first 3 of them at my bank and sent a western union to 3 different names. This is when I became suspicious and starting asking more questions. As the second set of money orders came FED-X. I started examining the MO a little closer. They came form Huntsville, TX from someone name Roger Fountain. These look really good. I emailed the guy markjohn@yahoo.com asking questions as to why the person couldn't send him the money if he lived right here in the states as well. He never emailed me back, but has sent another package, which I wont except. I told him that I will not except anymore packages from him until he can tell me why? Someone please email me @ littlesw@yahoo.com and let me know who I can contact to turn over these MO and give all the other information that I have.

I received two money oders in the amount of 2500.00.
The gal claims to be coming from england. I had put
an ad on roommates.com I am on the phone now on hold
with that 800 # provided on that message board. But
so far in my investigation, I have found that walmart
does have financial services. And they would even
cash the money orders. But to be sure, I am calling
this number. But everything that I have read on that
message board points to fraud. and even on the back
of this money order it has the same number i am
calling.

Just came across this site during a search. So far from what I have read here you are all in ggod company. I work for a distribution center in California and found that the company has been being taken for years until I did some investigating. So far I can tell you this.

1. Most fraud cases originate from Nigeria because there is basically no government AND NO AGENCY in Nigeria to stop this from happening. Our Local FBI can do nothing about it because of this.

2. Any type of internet marketplace is targeted, I.E Craigslist, Ebay, etc..

3. I personnaly was targeted at one time, selling a set of couches on Craigslist for $300, I was sent $3500 in Cashiers checks to pay for the couches and then send was asked to send $3200 to a third party for shipping costs to UK. Ok, who pays $3500 for $300 used furniture for one! When I told them I could not ship it, they asked that i send them back the money in cash, because they were on vacation in (guess where) Nigeria and his wife had become ill!

3. Most of the time they want something sent to Laos, which is the capitol of Nigeria.

4. Right now the name Princess Jones is being used and they also will take account numbers from places like UPS and use them.

5. If you have been a victim or targeted for any thing like this, please e-mail me with the details as now it looks like there is a contact for these criminals in Georgia and I will be contacting the FBI with all my information soon.

Just goes to show you never know whos on the other end.
I was contacted for a job offer doing books for a companies clients here in the usa. I was to receive payments have them cashed at my bank and wire the money to the company in London. I was to keep 10% for myself it did not sound like a bad offer. I checked and there is a Company with that name in London. I did ask some questions on how he found me he said it was through my resume that I had put on monsters. kinda scary huh. So I decided to play it out and see what would happen not giving any information except my address. I received an e-mail telling me the client called and will fedx a payment to make sure I was home to receive it. What really red flagged it more was the money orders were sent from france from a client in TX from walmart on a bank in MN. He told me because of the terrorist bombings in London wireing it there would have a hold put on it so I was to western union the money to Nigrea ASAP so the funds could be picked up by a branch of his company there. The money orders looked good except the were dated a month eariler not consecutive numbers and the heat spot did not work. I was always told as a child that never give out any information to any one that calls on the phone you never know who your talkng.Now that applies to e-mails. Remember we hear this all the time If it sounds to good to be true it probably is.

Re: my last post.
Holy cow! There's six of 'em. $5400.00 "face value". Actual value $0.00. They could've at least left the backs blank so they'd be good for scratch paper. That ming be worth $.000001 for the lot.

Keys to scam
If they are offering more money then you ask
If the want you to send money to them western union
If they are out of the courntry but will have third arange shipping.
Would you send some 2000 dollars for a 200 dollar item and hope they are honest?
I tell them to send me the checks or money orders then I hang them on my wall. Make sure you reques they use fedex to send them so they get nailed a high fee for shipping. Maybe your getting them the loose some one elses money. The last on i got was from london without even a return address. These guys are really bad.

Just received four fake "Walmart Financial Services, Travelers Express co" each in the amount of $900.00. These are absolutely THE BEST fake financial documents I've ever seen. My bank will cash them. (If I were that stupid) The $3600. debit would come back like a yo yo plus $6.00 each penalty to my account, of course.
Be careful folks, these money orders look more genuine than the real McCoy!

I just received two international money orders (IMO) from Security Pacific National Bank in the amount of $2000 each. Concerned, I looked up the bank online and it was taken over by Bank of America (BoA) more than 10 years ago. So, I checked with BoA RE: IMO, and they informed me that no money orders from that originating bank were still valid. However, I had already put the IMO in my bank account (prior to actually learning they were fake) and my bank made the funds available, even though the IMO had not cleared yet! So, beware the fact that the funds may appear in your account right away despite there being about a 10 day cycle for the funds to be verified. The funds are made available on 'good faith'. DO NOT ACCEPT IMO FROM SECURITY PACIFIC NATIONAL BANK!! If someone knows how I should handle this matter properly so I do not get accused of fraud, please advise. Unfortunately, like I said, I already deposited the IMO and I informed my bank that these IMO will be bad. The perpetrator contacted me through an online dating service. She posed as a Dutch woman living in the WIlmington, DE, who dealt in "jewelries". I was suspicious from the get go, but I wanted to be helpful. After a few weeks of dialogue, she claimed that she was having difficulties while conducting business in Africa (Nigeria, to be more specific) and that she wanted me to cash some IMO for her through my bank and then transfer the funds via Western Union. I was a total dope for not saying "no" right away, but I thought I was being nice. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS IMO "I WONT BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO THE STATES IF YOU DONT HELP ME" SCAM! Again if anyone knows the proper authorities to contact, please let me know. Thanks!

I just recieved a money order for the amount of 2800.00 from walmart financial sevices. The envelope it was in was post-marked from Nigeria. I have an e-mail address of the man that has been mailing me, saying he wanted to buy one of my great dane puppies i have for sale. This is just to weird, and wanted to know if it was legit or not and what's going on. If someone could write me back asap i would appreciate it very much. He used a relay call for deaf people to call me on the phone a couple of times.Please contact me as soon as you can. Thank you!
