Buy a blacklight during Halloween season at a party store or custome store. Or use a bug zapper since those lights are UV light also. The vertical line that runs through the MO should glow red under the light and the watermark should also glow. My fake money orders had a Jesus water mark and it didnt even glow under the light and neither did the line.

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Mr. Mark Davidson

I applied on so many websites and sent tons of resumes so I though this was legit. It seemed to good to be true when I added up the amount of 3 $820 money orders and the total was 2460. I though no way! I get 10% which is 246! just for doing nothing. I even bragged to my mom about this and she got pissed. She told be I was getting into some deep sh... But I told her what does she know. Then I happily go to my bank thinking easy money baby easy money. I though I was going to be arrested when all the banktellers came up to me asking where I got these moneyorders from. Then they explained to me about the watermarks and held the MOs under the blacklight and then I realized that the watermark was not of Ben Franklin but it was Jesus Christ! I tried to act innocent but I couldnt help feeling guilty for not listening to my mom. They let me go but I think that bank wrote down my information and I am now ton the watch list. Word of advice. If your receive an email that offers something to good to be true its because it is. I feel like I have been raped is there anything that we can do make sure these people dont keep doing this?

I just received an e-mail from someone claiming that they were from the United Kingdom and an Art owner and seller, wishing for me to give them my name and address so that I could cash US money orders for them and send them money. I believe this is a scam and do not know how they got my e-mail


2007-10-23 14:53:41 -
back in 2004 i received three(3) money orders each for $999.00, i thought they were real so i cashed them and a month later my credit union told me they were counterfiet, and that i had to pay them back so i set up payments to my credit union of monthly payments.
Later i found out that members of my credit union were "scammed" and cause of the high number the SECRET SERVICE got involved and took possesion of the money orders and were finding out whre they are comming from. even tho i spent the money already i still had to pay my credit union back the $2997.00.


2007-10-23 14:17:00 -
I just got a job offer from a "Dr. Robert Kent" from the United Kingdom; asking me to cash money orders for him in the U.S. Compensation is by keeping 10% of the money order. Scam! Scam! Scam! I'm guessing that once the money order is placed in one's bank account all of your own money is cleared out for the amount of the money order. Scam! Scam! Scam!

CAN I KNOW WHAT ARE THE SEALS TO TELL ONE REAL ONE AND ONE FAKE ONE

I received this email from a certain Mrs. Mary Parker, anybody may react on this please:


Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the truth; I had no choice than to do what is lawful and just in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God & His Mercies and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs. Mary Parker, the wife of Mr. Robert Parker; both of us are citizens of the united state of America. My husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Russia for twenty years before he died in the year 2003. We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we both got born- again as dedicated Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is
strongly against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 7.5 Million Pounds (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand Pounds) with a Bank in Europe. Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANT and if I, as the beneficiary of the funds, do not re-activate the account; the funds will be CONFISCATED or I rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf (note that you need to activate this account) as I can not come over. Presently, I'm in a hospital in Russia where I have been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations and NGO anywhere in the World in helping human race.

Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand-in as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that is God-fearing who will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.

I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death since I know where I am going to. I know that I am going to be in the bossom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14: says that the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.

I await your quick response to this mail as this is my last wish to see this funds transferred before my Death. Please my beloved for further communication on how we are going to conclude this, Remain Blessed.

Your Sister in Christ,

Mrs. Mary Parker.
