so r the money orders from walmart financial security fake...

I responded to an online job ad for our local newspaper. The job was to be partime accounting/bookkeeping work. I was to receive payments for LENOVO Computer Company, cash the money orders, then wire the money to company agents. I should have known better, but I fell for the scam. I cashed the money orders at my local bank and wired the money by Western Union to the company agents and keep 10% as my fee.

I couldn't sleep all night thinking this was too good to be true. The next day, I went on the internet and starting looking for scams involving postal money orders. Then I went to the U.S. Postal Service website where I got a number to check on whether the money orders were legitimate. I made a copy of the money orders before I cashed them, so I had the serial numbers and other information. Well, I learned the money orders were fake. I was sick to my stomache. I knew I had to make this right, so I went to my bank and told them what happened and told them I would repay the money. I have been a customer with the bank since they opened almost 10 years ago. They told me they would let me know if/when the money orders came back as fraudulent. I made arrangements to repay the money by making payments every 2 weeks when I got paid.

My bank was very understanding, but I felt like a complete fool and an idiot. I am 50+ years old and should have known that if it sounded too good to be true, it isn't true.

I hope someone else reads this before the same thing happens to them. I am having to repay a little more than $3000.00 that I don't have and will be making payments for quite a while, in addition to having to cash in an IRA that I had.

Stay alert! There are lots of evil, scheming people out there looking to prey upon unsuspecting people like you and me.

A word to the wise --

I'm reading about this money order scam!
I also rec'd a e-mail for part time work! I filled in the info requested, then all of a sudden, 3 Walmart money orders arrived from City Express,Inc, Minnesota!
I was expecting to work part time! Whats the catch?
These are "FAKE" and one deposits them and removes the cash, western union the 90% of the 3 M.O's.Then have the bank come back in 1 week and say the M.O.'s.are fake and then remove the money from my acct. and OOPPS, I'm out the money!!!!
Am I on the right track!
The guy sending me e-mails is a James Warwick!

I've been sent five US postal service money orders totaling over $ 4000 mailed from Minneapolis, MN and asked to cash them into my bank account. Then, after 24 hours, withdraw most of the money and send it to two attorneys in Lagos, Nigeria. This sounds fishy. Anyone else get this type of deal? What is the catch?


2007-08-06 23:30:52 -

I have a letter from a Dr. Kent stating that he does research in the UK the money orders?travelers checks are in the amounts of $5000 and that I should go to my bank right away and cash them and then send him his 90 percent and keep 10 percent for my self . There is another man who he working with by the name of Holli O harvey who actually sent them to me from 1238 School Rd
Avonmore PA 15618 thebest3677@yahoo.com. I found this very strange that all I had to do was get these money orders cashed to get paid and I was still unsure of what the actual work was.
