Receive a MO from WF National Bank South Central Fairbault, MN on Tuesday. amount of purchase 1900 was sent 5000. Wanted me to cash and immediately send western union to shipping company in London, Where he was from. Almost did it but had a gut feeling. This guy is using relay phone and claiming to be deaf. Have authorities checking in on it and reported it to the address listed below from John 9/16. Makes one sick to the stomache knowing you were actually trusting them!

How nice it is to have you in my life, you are my everything, and I mean my everything. I still remember the first time we met; it was like a puppy going home for the first time after being in the pound for days! The long waiting was finally over. When our eyes met, it was like I knew from that day on that you were the one I would spend the rest of my life with.
I know we have problems, and everybody does - that means I will not give up on us or you, I love you so damn much! I can't stand being away from you, sleeping without you. Just having you there reassures me that everything will be alright.
You are like God's dove, so beautiful, so pretty, so loving, caring, and that's what I love, the fact that you love me for who I am, not what you want me to become. Thank you, God, for this special woman, you gave me - I can't thank him enough for the love and beauty that I found.
Yes, I fought cancer and won and now I'm going to fight for this love to get stronger than ever, and in time it will. Nothing can keep me from you, not even death, because with death, I bring you with me in my heart and in my soul.

If these sound familiar to you... beware!!... These happend to me... and I have to tell you... they're very good!!! Just be careful... He just needed some little help cashing a 10K money order, he was running out of money, and I was the only one who could help him!!... Mine said he was from US, when we started chatting, actually from Annapolis, MD. But in that time he was on Canada finishing his master on Computer System. Suddenly his dad, who was from Nigeria, asked him to take a job overthere just for few months, but the pocket money they gave him was on US Money Order... and the only way to cash it was with my help... I almost did it... but I tried to find some information about this, because I just realize something was wrong when other guy asked me the same

I have a profile on Yahoo personals and have been contacted by several men claiming that they love me and want to marry me just by looking at my picture. all of these men have either been from africa of claim to be in London on contract as a computer engineer. They all will have model looking pictures on thier profiles and do not spell very well or use the english language very well. I have had one try to get me to open and account with Wells Fargo Bank and he will put money in my account for me to buy a new computer. One asked if he could mail me some money orders to cash and then wire him the rest of the money so he could pay his travel agent to get back to the states and come and meet me. This guy I met on Match.com, so they are not just limited to Yahoo.

I received 3 money orders from Walmart Financial Services each for $2800 for misc items I have for sale, so do I assume these are fake??

I received an international postal money order from a man I met online in Nigeria. It was in the amount of 3,000. Bank of America never verified it in their Domestic collections department and I was allowed to withdraw the funds. A day after the funds were withdrawn, then Bank of America informed me that the Money orders were Counterfeit! I called the local police to report this, they said it was Bank of Americas fault and not mine.
Now the associates at the bank are threatening me. They were the ones who told me that everything was fine! I am now in the process of paying the bank back for money I do not owe. I am the victim here and not the felon. This has been a horrible experience.

Got $5k in money orders fromn wf national bank, MN. Fake, I guess, eh?


2005-09-16 01:59:55 -
To all posters below, if you recieved any check or moneyorder from online activity such as a Walmart MO payable at WF national bank these are fake!!!!!
(so far they have not been able to reproduce the thermal dot on these moneyorders,the dot is supposed to change color with heat "rubbing")
Save all emails,envelopes and checks/moneyorders and file a report at http://www.ic3.gov
These peaple are using surplus printing equipment that was liquidated by Walmart and other institutions to print these fake notes.Beware and to all the other equipment sellers online,think twice about selling anything that could be used to counterfeit such documents.The group of scammers is large and spread worldwide,they are getting better at what they do(you can see the documents are nearly perfect)

Recieved today 5 $1,000 money orders from WalMart Financial Services. They came FedEx from Paris. No one has called me yet.

Anyone contacted the FBI about them? Can't wait to get the call and see if I can have some fun with them.

Well, I have about $10,000 in money orders to date. first was a girl named michelle from the UK. She found me on roommates.com. I realized they were fake when I compared them to a real walmart mo. I think I have another $5000 coming today from a gil named linda love who wants to rent my room, also from the UK. I just wish a sting could be set up and catch these scammers. does anyone know how to verify funds for walmart money orders? I took the last set to walmart and they wouldnt even check for me.
