2007-08-30 21:51:24 -
I received these fake money orders as well as fake travellers checks. Now the guy has the nerve to email me telling me that he is worried cause he hasn't heard from me or received the money. He says that i cannot run away with the company's money and i will be reported to the FBI and sued if i don't respond. I almaost died laughing at the guts of this scam artist. I emailed him back and told hin it was him that better watch out for the FBI as I was currently cooperating with the police. Have not received anymore contact from him since. It's bad enough that these guys have figured out a way to counterfeit this stuff, but to actually threaten the cops is really gutsy. Everyone beware of easy money!!!

WHEN WALMART TELLS YOU THEY HAVE NO INFO ON THAT MONEY ORDER THEY MEAN THEY HAVE NO RECORD OF IT BEING SOLD.
SO THE MONEY ORDER IS PROBABLY A COUTERFEIT

Ok received 7 money orders written from Wal-Mart. I called 1-800-666-3947 to check them out because they look so real. However these money orders have already been cashed. I will be calling the local sheriff's office to report them and give them for evidence. I think we should also be able to get them for mail fraud.

I received a check yesterday in the amount of $3,950 from a doctor out of NC. It was sent from overseas by UPS. Took it to the bank that was on the check and almost got it cashed until the teller checked the account # and told me that the check could not be cashed at that time and I would need to get with the person whose name was on the check. I received today, 4 postal money orders in the amount of $950 each. These money orders have the Benjamin Franklin watermark on them. I called the 1800 number to check out the serial # and it said that they did not have any info on that particular money order. What exactly do that mean? Can someone help me?

ASAP through the email (christos005@gmail.com) for further inquires

MR Marculey Chrisantos
Managing Director
M&C LIMITED"



i smelled a scam, so i sent a simple email reply to the address posted. i got a response, and after doing a google search for the phone number in the response, i found this site here. here is the reply i got:



"Thanks for your response and i would like to know if you really like to work for the company,M&C LIMITED needs a book-keeper in the states, so i want to know if you will like to work online from home,getting paid weekly without leaving or it affecting your present job?
I am presently running a textile and fabrics firm i inherited from my late father and we need someone to work for the company as a representative/book keeper in the states
My company produces various clothing materials,expensive and high quality batiks,assorted
fabrics and traditional costumes which we have clients we supply weekly in the states.
My clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of money orders or checks which are not readily cashable outside the US {JUST BECAUSE THIS US MONEY ORDERS AND CHECKS CAN ONLY BE CASHED WITHIN THE USA} so we need someone in the states to work as our representative and assist us in processing the payments from our clients and i will pay weekly salary {YOU WILL BE PAID 15% FOR EACH TRANSACTION AND WE NORMALLY GET PAID 4 TIMES A WEEK FROM OUR CLIENTS} All you need to do is receive this payment from our client in the states, you can call the verifying bank to confirm the funds or you can get it cashed at the bank and then deduct your weekly pay i.e 15% and forward the balance to the company via western union money transfer.
You will keep all western union transfer receipts used and forward them to us from time to time, you will also record all transactions on your computer both offline and online in case of any emergency references. We would have told our clients to send the money directly to US via money gram but it has been a tradition for them to pay us via US MONEY ORDERS OR CHECKS and the person that used to help us cash the MONEY ORDERS AND CHECKS before i.e {our former representative} has been relieved.Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed at the bank, (tax charges on your account will be deducted from our pockets not yours, so you dont have to worry about that) and then deduct your salary and foward the balance to the company via western union money transfer method i did mention earlier on.
So all i need is to forward your information to our numerous clients in the state and they
issue payment in form of MONEY ORDERS OR CHECKS then send it via courier or mail to you. i will need your full name,address and phone number so we can foward it to our clients and they will start making payments to you as the company representative in the states
I WILL EMAIL YOU A LETTER OF EMPLOYMENT FROM OUR COMPANY WHICH YOU HAVE TO REPLY WITH AN ACCEPTANCE LETTER AND A SCANNED COPY OF YOUR INDENTIFICATION ATTACHED TO IT AND ALSO SEND ME
YOUR FULL NAME THAT THE MONEY ORDERS OR CHECKS WILL BE ISSUED TO AND ALSO YOUR ADDRESS WHERE THEY SHOULD BE SENT TO AND YOUR DIRECT TELEPHONE NUMBER FOR EASY COMMUNICATION.
AS SOON AS WE CONFIRM ANY PAYMENT COMING TO YOU I WILL LET YOU KNOW AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE INFORMATION TO SEND FUNDS TO THE COMPANY VIA WESTERN UNION.
Thanks and i await your response.

just to answer everyone out there who have question in regards to wall mart money gram, money order that they are receiving; they are false/fake/scam and should not be cash are lodged to your account. to verify if the money order you receive is good call 800 542 3590, give them the serial number on the money order for verification before you do anything foolish that could land you in trouble or take money out of your account .

have a nice day

i got a money order for 850.00 how can i tell if it is real


2007-08-25 12:07:33 -
I was sent some money orders last week from kentucky. i Cashed them at my bank thinking that money orders were as good as money. i thought you had to pay cash for money orders. anyway, these orders bounced in my checking account a few days later. after i'd spent the money. I am getting copies of these orders monday from the bank and me and walmart are going to have a talk. i want my money. if they had done the purchase of a money order properly, this would not be a problem. they had water marks, serial numbers , you name it. this looks like an inside job with walmart employees.
