I registered with moneyordersonly and have a lot of trust issues with this company. It has been months since they started saying they would re-open. I keep sending them emails and get nothing in return. I sent them money to get there start up package it took them months to first send it. I sent them a letter asking them what was taking so long and stressed to them that I was starting to think they were scamming people. A couple of days later the package finally arrived. I bought over a hundred dollars worth of stamps, mailed them out and then all of a sudden they were closed down to relocate. Why didn't they give people notice that they were relocating. Why don't they send people a letter stating what it taking so long. I do think they are a scam but they did send me back my second money order for more postcards, stating that they were moving and would be opening soon better than ever. Again this was months ago.

I too bought 300 postcards, and stamps, but got nothing in return, I got moneyordersonly.com from a directory which I also paid for.

Iam a sucker to the following company MoneyOrders Only .com . I have invested $130.90 in post cards and $200.50 in stamps to mail the post cards. I am beside myself and don't know what to do. I am on Disability and would like to know if I have a chance to get my money back.I have receipts for everything.If you could contact me on this issue it would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you very much. Janet Simister. 250-724-7390.

I DON'T REALLY KNOW TO MUCH ABOUT THE MONEY ORDER SCAMS GOING ON NOW. I RECENTLY STARTED SELLING ON EBAY AND I KEEP RECIEVING EMAILS FROM PEOPLE SAYING THAT THEY WANT ME TO MAIL THIER ORDER TO NIGERIA, AND THEY WILL ARRANGE FOR PICK UP SO I WANT HAVE TO PAY. THEY ALSO SEND ME FAKE EMAILS FROM WESTERN UNIION AND BIDPAY. I ALMOST WENT FOR IT BECAUSE I HAD NEVER DID BUSINESS WITH THESE COMPANYS. BUT EVEN WHEN I THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO JUST USE PAYPAL I REIEVED A FAKE EMAIL FROM PAYPAL. I CALLED PAYPAL AND THEY SAID THAT THEY HAVE NOT EVEN SENT ME ANY EMAILS OF INSTANT PAYMENT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW. I JUST RECIEVE A MONEY ODER IN THE MAIL FROM TRAVELERS EXPRESS MONEY GRAM FOR $2500.00 AND I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD CAHS IT OR NOT BECAUSE THE MONEY ORDER LOOKS DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE I HAVE PURCHASE. I KNOW THAT MONEY ORDERS LOOK DIFFERENT BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME OR GET ME UP TO DATE WITH ALL THE INTERNET SCAMS AND WHETHER OR NOT I SHOULD CASH THIS MONEY ORDER. AND IF YOU HAVE RECIEVE A SIMILAR MONEY ORDER FROM SOMEONE THAT DID NOT EVEN PUT THEIR NAME AND ADDRESS ON THE ENVELOPE PLEASE CONTACT ME. AND ANOTHER THING THAT IS WEIRD WITH THIS MONEY ORDER IS MY NAME AND ADDRESS IS TYPED AND THE SIGNATURE LOOKS TYPE TOO. zephaniahlawrence@yahoo.com

I'm writing in to mention that over 2 months i received 4 seperate money orders from this company for $70. (moneyordersonly) I asked by email when they would be back in buisness and they said they were working to make it happen soon with out giving me an exact date. They told me they would continue to uphold their refund guarantee for me if i should happen to ask for it. So, i have chosen to wait till thier back in buisness. I'm thinking the same thing as the other person on this board. That is, why would they have refunded so many people as well as paid me 4 sperate money orders if they were not planning on being around for the long haul?

Moneyordersonly is the biggest internet FRAUD or RIP-OFF work at home opportunity thats is running all across Canada,frauding thousands of people out of thousands of dollars in money orders by haveing people who join them from their website as members to send in 2 money orders to their website address.
One was for the member who sent them a post card in the mail and the other was for money orders only.

What happpens here when one sends the 2 seperate money orders to money orders only. Then they send out 100 canadian addressed post cards fo one to mail out with ones ID Code # on it and their website address as well which was everyone website address as of ID Code #. So everyone had to buy postal stamps and put their ID Code number on the postal cards and then mail them out and also wait for money orders to return by mail. But nothing ever showed up even after two months. Moneyordersonly were the ones makeing the money not the home workers that were members.

Moneyordersonly also got rid of their fancy website when everyone who was a member reported them to RECOL for online crime. Now moneyordersonly is on the run from the law as they are moveing to a new location and changeing their website to a new set up so they can fraud more people out of money.

Moneyordersonly can not be trusted any more even if they do have a new website. They are probably thinking of a better way to fraud more people and disapper fast so no law can track them down.

They are also known on FIB SCAMS message site,RECOL for Canadian internet online crime, and also i reported them to Canada Crime Stoppers, plus www.ripoff.com for internet crime as of American,Canada and worldwide Rip-offs.

I'm not sure that MoneyOrdersOnly is a fraud. I read about them, and sent in my money orders and registration about 2 weeks ago. They sent my money orders back to me, telling me that they were re-organizing their commission program, moving, etc. and to watch for their new site, and register at that time if I still wanted to. If this is a fraud why would they return perfectly good money orders?? Still Hopeful.

There is a internet money order fraud going on in Canada now. They are known as money orders only, but they got rid of their fancy website after they ripped thousands of people off across Canada.

Check their website out at http://www.moneyordersonly.com/ or just type in moneyordersonly on your search site.

They are only leaving a e-mail address and are moving to a new location. These criminals got to be stopped for good.
I contacted www.RECOL.ca here for online crime but nothing happened yet. Crime stoppers might be my next step.

Here is one example I recieved today from a member on American Singles.

hello,thanks for the mail.I am currently in Nigeria.I was invited here by a guy and he treated me bad.He beat me up and almost raped me.I managed, and i ran away from him.I got a hotel which helped me and paid for my hospital bills and also take me in until i am able to pay there bills.Now i want to get back home but i can't untill i pay the bills.Can you help me out and tell the hotel you will be paying for the bills?
If you can,mail me asap.Or the hotel on Boladhottel@yahoo.com.
hope to hear from you soonest.
kellie
and mail me jennypryse@yahoo.com if you can help.
---------------------------------------------------
Hello Kellie,

I got your email and I have to ask why won't your family help you out? I don't even know you but sending me an email asking for money sounds like a scam. In fact the US State Department has warnings all over the net about how Nigerians are total scumbags who think they are smart enough to rip off Americans. Personally as a former US Marine I would have taken pleasure in laying waste to the entire country.

_______________________________________________

hello,
thanks for your reply.I sure know that beause of all these you must be very suspicious about everythin being a scam and besides the fact that i am in Nigeria.Well i guess you just have to trust me on this.I have someone who is willing to send me some of the money he owed me.He only will be paying Via money orders but as you know it can't be cashed here else i would have gone outta here well ago.If you really think you want to help me, give me your address let me give to him then he will send you the money orders and then you will cash it and if you think i am not lying about it all then,you can assist with the remaining money.
Once again many thanks.
jenny.
