I have received "fake postal money orders" - the Post Office was kind enough to demonstrate their security water marks.

I have received "fake cashiers checks" from AZ, I called to validate teh checks and they told me that there was over $1.7 Million in complaints before new years.

I have now received 5 "Money Grams" and there is no wherde to findout what teh watermarks security is supposed to look like on these cheques...DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE?? Please email me at surfdadd@aim.com

Thanks Abe

I recieved a message from David Harks who "owns" Midwill Textile Limited in London. There is no such place in the UK. The bastard couldn't even spell United States correctly calling it "united the states"
To respond to this message that I recieved would be proof of a very limited IQ. As my daddy always said "Only believe half of what you read and nothing that you hear".

Does anyone think to contact the FBI concerning this Matter? I spoke with a local police department and they told me that the U.S post office is in fact supposed to be the ones handling this matter, however THEY HAVE REFUSED?????? Who do we contact and now what are we supposed to do, I spent 2 of my money orders at Wal-Mart and 3 were cashed at a bank, How do we repay these and NOT get into trouble with the police over this matter!!!

I received the email from John Kalo at Kalo industries...total fraud!!! I sent an email back asking for more info to verify the company and sent my address so they could mail me documentation proving the legitimacy of the business. I never heard anything back until 2 weeks later when 4 money orders showed up on my doorstep totaling $3600. I emailed "John Kalo" again and told him that I would NOT be cashing the checks because the whole thing sounded like a scam to me. I have not heard anything else since. I still have the money orders. What should I do with them?

I got 4 moneygrams from wal-mart @ $460.00 a piece.
I put them in my bank thinking it was payment for some work I had done. The bank let them go through now they have come back counterfeit. I had a name and address on the envelope called it and the man said that someone had stole his name and address and made fake money orders. They looked real to me. Why did the bank cash them? I thought they could tell about that. Who can you trust on the internet??????

I have receive some travelers checks for a company that I am working for and I am trying to figure out if they are real or not. I don't know if what I am suppose to look for. My fiancee says that you shouldn't be able to see any void signs on the checks. Should there be a void sign on the check? What does a real travelers check look like? If I take them into a bank will they be able to tell me if they are real or not? I don't want to get into any trouble so, I am just trying to figure out what I can do to verify that the travelers checks I received are real.

I got 3 Wal Mart Money Gram Money Orders, supposedly worth $750.00 each. They are counterfeit!!

Also, DON'T try to cash a "Cashier's Check" from The Bank of Lake Mills in Wisconsin. I looked up the phone number for the bank, gave them the number off of the $25,000 Cashier's Check, and the lady told me it is a fake; they get a batch of them coming through every few weeks--meaning, people coming in and trying to cash them. I really got hurt emotionally, because I truely believed "William Simon" and that he was sick with Cancer, and he needed me to cash this Cashier's Check here in the U.S. and then send a payment to someone in Nigeria, then he would send me another $75,000 Cashier's Check, and I would cash it, send out another payment, then be able to keep $5,000 for myself. I didn't beleive him from the start.......I just wanted to see how far he would go!! Please don't get ripped off....I'm writing this so no one else will end up being taken advantage of. Because if you cash the "check, money orders, cashier's check, etc." at your bank and what you cashed turns out to be fake, WHICH IT WILL, then YOU are responsible for giving ALL of that money back to your own personal bank!!! God bless and Merry Christmas!!
