I recieved a money order from a chick named Stephanie who wanted to buy my air conditioner...Same ol crap. She wanted me to wire $$ to the shipper and have them pick up the unit. Got the MO and realized it just looked wierd. I took to the local police... BAD MO. Dont cash these as you're responsible once you cash them.

Received 2 checks from the UK,Addressed to me,
Amounts-$1,000.00- $4,700.00,
From a Mr. Vincent Moore (person in charge of UK lotto,
He states I won UK's lotto,
I told him the UK lotto was a scam.

He offered to get a buyer, to pay any charges,
I told him that I was NOT going to pay him anything,

He set up a financier to buy the UK lotto,
I received the 2 checks mention above,
Without issuing signature on them,

My Bank just laughed and stated "NO" good.

Are WF National money orders any good?

I await
Thank You
Larry Price

Sends Walmart Financial Services money orders in the amount of $2500.

DO NOT CASH THESE MONEY ORDERS. You can contact the FBI by going to their website and report it. Also save the envelope or anything that is sent. They have fingerprints and may be able to be used to track these people down. You definately need to contact your local authorities and any other authorities you can. The girl Charlent Lawry also told me she was from the UK and said that she had to go to France to straighten out the funds. Watch out for a company called Ship Worldwide Inc. I was given the email address of shipworldwide@excite.com. They don't even have a website. These people are pretty smart but dumbasses at the same time. With me I would not have sent them my car until the money orders cleared so what are they getting out of it by my bank account being overdrawn and they get no product???????

I was sent 2 $4,700.00 money orders. I received an email from a Gibson Adams wanting to buy my car. His financer Charlene Lawry promised $$ for three months now. They said my car would be picked up and sent to Nigeria. Now I have an address from someone named charles in WI, and a name of jones-mills in Maryland.

I recived a money order of 3000 from a guy who wanted to buy something off of me he explained that he wanted me to wire the to his shipper who was going to come and pick up the item so I fell for it. and now I owe the bank. Of coures I don't want to pay them back because the cashed them like nothing and I believe that it is also their fault for cashing it and not haveing a better plan to protect their clients.Now this guy wants me to cash more money orders for him. Is there some one out there who knows what to do in this situation about the bank. Or am I pretty much screawed??????

Recieved two money orders for 1500.00..the printed amount on the check is two-thousand five hundred. *dumb scammer* I do have a UK address if anyone wants or needs it. DO NOT CASH OR DEPOSIT money orders if the payee requires you to send extra funds back to them!!!! I've started a collection of *FAKE* money orders....accepting donations :)

I got a package today, addressed to my husband there are 5 mo of $1,000 each from Walmart Financial Services. I talked to my husband and a girl from Nigeria told him her father is sick and she needs him to cash these and send the money back to her so she can pay for his medical treatment. I've found several other sites of people telling the same story, I'll be contacting our local police department in the morning. Good luck all.
