i almost got scammed also. received 3 M.O. for $2000 each they came from some chick off of webdate claiming to be a model in africa and lives in the usa trying to get home and come to ny to meet me but her pics showed up on 3 different postings on webdate with different names same face. The envelope with the M.O. were post marked from INDIANIA and from the IP address was out of U.K. and Istanbul. SO watch out. By the way I reported her to the fraud company. Her address willmarryluv@yahoo and valleryjohnson also yahoo always check ip address.
good luck
CHRIS

Yeah, this chick in Nigeria had a fraudulent check sent to me (from the Coachella water district in Los Angeles). Then had the "balls" to threaten me for not sending the "left-over" money back to her. Now she has sent me two (obviously fake) money orders.

Not a dummy

Very nice

I received 6 money orders from Wal Mart Financial Services for $850.00. Same deal as Larry Reeves. Only thing is It was sent to my ex-wife's address and I have not used that address for a while now. It does look legit but I don't think it is real. I do not know how to find out except go and try and cash it. I will not deposit in the bank.

I havew five money orders from wal-mart. I will not desposit them in my bank. Is there anyway to validate these MONEY ORDERS by serial numbers and amounts and bank issuing company.

If the money is legit, then I have questions about funds being funneled out of Canada to Nigeria for use by some of our more radical muslim friends in the so called third world.

As such, sould I call the FBI and DHS abou this operation to put a freeze on it.

If anyone within these agencies read these notices I would appreciate a prompt e-mail reply.

I will send all information about the persons involved by name, and addresses I have.

The amounts are a total of five $950 Money Orders drawn on Wal*Mart financial services/ Travelers Express Company, Inc. payable through WF National Bank South Central, Faribault MN

ZmanRob,
I had the SAME scam done to me. Just slight twist. Renting out a room too.


2005-08-20 01:36:21 -
I got one for you. I was renting out a room in my house and a female in London got in touch with me about moving in. Said she was from the states and wanted to get back. "Damsel n distress" deal.Thing was she didn't have the money on her and could not get it sent directly. Someone here in the states would send me(which I received today) two $2500 money orders. Didn't even think about it till I got them, but clearly states on the back "recourse is only against Presenter" of money order. Guess I still have a room available...Think twice about juliepat_2472005@yahoo.com


2005-08-16 04:26:28 -
i was resently scamed by a randel raines.he sent a money order for 2500 and its the first time i ever went through something like this.i never sold anything online and when the bank called and told me it was a fake money order, i thought how?now what will happen?has anyone out there know?the bank said i have to pay it back.why should i?i didnt know shouldnt they have?so watch out for a randel4u2nv@yahoo.com


2005-08-14 20:23:01 -
The person's e-mail was naomidebbieprice@yahoo. I had no reason not to trust the bank when they said not to worry. I was only trying to sell some tools. Good thing I still have them to sell. Anybody need a hammerdrill? JK


2005-08-14 20:19:58 -
Taken for $4250. My bank told me that they were good after I asked them to make sure they clear and are real. Now the same bank is charging me the $4250.
That just isn't right. Of all the people who should know I would think it's the bank.


2005-08-14 20:17:07 -
I was just taken for $4250. From Nigeria


2005-08-12 21:47:06 -
All you need to do to determine if the money order is valid is take it to the issuing financial institution. I get sent the scam emails all the time and just have fun with the scammers.


2005-08-11 05:16:47 - erik
i found one too, he sent me 4 money orders today, $950 each, i won't cash them. his email is martin2kellisfarewell@yahoo.com - said he needs the money for a plane ticket back to America


2005-08-09 01:13:17 -
I have received one money order so far from somebody operating under the email HalleBruce006@yahoo.com. She/he contacted me through www.i711.com active relay service. She/he supposedly wanted to purchase two puppies from me. She/he sent out a total of 3 money orders but I have only received one. At the time I put the money order in to my account, I didn't know it was a scam. My gut feeling told me otherwise, so I started looking in to it a bit online. She/he also wanted me to send money back to her through western union. She used a money order company called www.Qchex.com. I just wanted to send out a warning to anybody I can you would possibly cross paths with this individual. LOOK OUT!
