I am currently talking to one of these scammers, I cant remember her name but says she is from london her mum owns some sort of store and is sick cancer of the lungs. She has repeatedly tried to get me to take money orders and case them and has all kinds of excuses of why the money cant be transfered any other way. I had already gon through this with another girl pretty much the same senario so im still leading this person on and would really like to bust these thiefs but am not sure how to go about it. I planned on having her send them then showing them to my bank president, then going from there maybe somebody has something better or knows exactly what i should do. Let me know

thx James

I have similar situation as Candi. It was Money order fraud. He told me that he comes to US to collect money from his father's business, and he need someone to collect it. When I agreed with 3% commission he send me fake money orders.
I check it before deposit to bank if its ligimate or not and found out that its fake. never heard from him again. my email: watch_1_2000@yahoo.com

What I would like to know is what you people are thinking? I get emails like that all the time, but I KNOW they are fake. I can't believe this many people fall for these scams. No wonder the thieves are so abundant! It is so easy for them! That is just crazy! We went on vacation and tried to get travelers checks from our bank and the lady told us they were having problems with people cashing them. I guess so, if so many fake ones are going around. Just everyone needs to quit falling for these kind of scams. Just unreal! My opinion! L

I guess I am not the lucky one. I had similar situation as Debbie. The different is that I am a student, and now my bank account is negative several thousand $. How am I gonna pay for school. I am too sad and hurt now. I will write my stupid-interesting true story later when I feel better.

well listen to this one!
I thought I was chatting with one of our troops in Iraq, a naval officer in the united states navy, well we chatted for months and actually I was falling for him, he asked me if he sent me the money if i would western union his house insurance payment to the insurance company in London as he has a house over there for when he travels there.I agreed, 3 weeks later I receive in the mail, 2 walmart money orders in the amount of $3500 each. Now this joker wants me to go cash them at 2 different check cashing places and them he gave me the name of his agent in london to wire the $7,000 to.
needless to say I am much smarter than that and I took them to my bank and attempted to deposit them when the bank teller called to verify the funds came back and told me they were no good
So I am fortunate that I was not scammed out of any money.
Has anyone else had any connections with this jerk?
his yahoo id is tonitrentham@yahoo.com
my email is candistanley@aol.com and I would love to hear if anyone else has had this same situation

I had the lower level of my house for rent on rooms.com. I have used this site in the past without a problem This woman from London cotacts me and says that she wants to rent the room and will be sending me Us money orders to please deposit them keep what I need and hold the rest for her arrival. Then she emails me and says that her mother died and she needs me to wire her money so that she can pay funeral expenses Long story short we checked them for all of the markings they looked real but were fake. My checking account is now overdrawn by 9,000.00 and I am liable.

Whenever I receive a PayPal or BidPay payment, I log into my accounts to verify. Also, when receiving money orders, request a hold until it goes through the bank, then ship the items.

I was the meddle man in a scam i was the one that had to cash the money orders and send the money western union.. i was recieved 5 money order each $850.00 and deposited it and i had to send $3,000 plus the sending fee of $135.00. i deposited all the money orders and with drew $3135.00 to send.. now im in the my checkin is negitive. way over $3,900 never thought the US postal money orders were fake.. it had every thing on it.. even the water mark of ben franklen on it. one thing it did not have that my bank found out when it was too late it did not have a serial number.

I too was duped by moneyorders.com I lived a block away from Hazelton Ave in Toronto and a friend and I who was also scammed sat outside this location waiting for someone to come and enter the building where this operation was located and no one would tell us anything or cooperate with us. It seemed this was the order of the day. Between my friend and myself we spend 600 dollars and never got a single return, what turned us on to the scam was both our post card list were the same addresses that's when we knew we were being taken!!!!


2005-06-21 21:09:51 -
i need someone to talk to about this .i was informed by the postal ppffice about this and would like to discuss it with them


2005-06-16 07:45:08 -
I too got ripped off by this scum.I spent over $400.00 on cards ,etc. without a penny in return! My ID No is PK72.If anyone ordered on this No. I would like to know,because I did'nt recieve a single money order.They don't reply to my plea for a refund as they stated was guaranteed.I also gave them my phone number and asked them to call me to explain what was going on,but the dirty cowards won't respond.I think its high time the government brought back yhe lash for this kind of slime!

Ok my family was very lucky to identify the scam before we were hurt but I beleave eveyone needs to be warned. There is a man who says he is from london and is an lawyer. He sends a copy of his visa. He is trying to locate someone to give a large sum of money too and then donate the rest of it to charities. First you have to send him four thousand dollars to open you an account in london. We told we didnt have the money to do that so he said his friend would send three 2000 dollar walmart money orders and we were to cash them and send the back. We fisrt took them to walmart to make sure they were real. They weren't. I also called Travelers Express company to verify this and they confirmed that at one time the id number were real but the money orders were fake. Here are the serail numbers just in case some else runs across this. 53914352160, 53914352150, 53914352140 These are the red numbers on the Money Orders. Its takes so little time to make sure these checks are real instead of being scammed. Most os these places that issue money orders can tell you the true amount and date cashed. before being frauded.


2005-06-14 06:54:09 -
We were duped, too. First for the 100 cards and then for another order of 500 cards. I don't mind paying for the postage as it helps Canada Post's revenue so that's ok. What is not ok is that I wasted about $300 on bloody useless postcards. Canada Post should help track down these crooks. I mean we all have our postal receipts for the money orders, and they must be cashed somewhere, right?

There mus be a way to trace these criminals, and Canada Post should help.

Let's all request Canada Post to take some action, please.
