I just got the "Lady Peggy Morrison, suffering from cancerous ailment". How was I picked?


2007-01-10 23:04:51 -
I keep my fraudulent Wal*Mart money order in a file cabinet. I bring it out & show it to people. It really looks real. I had fun playing with the fraud, but stupidly gave him/her my home phone number. When I lied & told the fraud I'd taken the check to the bank, they called me ALL night long. I was supposed to send the extra money, western union to someplace. The guy called me on a phone with a Mexico area code.

You don't ever want to cash one of the fraudulent checks. It's actually a crime to cash a fraudulent check. Some poor women a few hundred messages back, was hauled out of a bank in handcuffs for trying to put one of these worthless checks in her account.

Just because a bank will give you money for the check, does not mean you have money. A man from Wells Fargo Bank call center, told me it can take up to 6 weeks for fraudulent cashier checks, money orders, bank checks to come back as frauds. The frauds are counting on you to send them cash before the bank bounces the check back to you.


2007-01-10 19:53:09 -
Yes it looked too good to be true. But it had Monster.com's logo at the top of the page. After copying the message to Monster, they told me the offer was NOT registered with their company. I recieved my contract which did not spell out how or why the check cashing process worked. My internet search proved it is too good to be true.


2007-01-10 16:23:47 -
I received the fraudulent email regarding Lady Peggy Morrison. Like a dummy i responded to it. I did not give any personal information. But i would like to know what kind of repercussions it with have.


2007-01-10 11:15:54 -
Just got the email for cashing money orders and sending the cash back to Gregory Holdings and taking out my wage. Sounds pretty good, until you actually read the whole email and see the tremendous amount of grammatical errors and typo's. I can't believe the amount of people who fall for these.

I have recieved an email about working for the globalhealth company as well, I had no idea that the company was not legit because I saw it listen on careerbuilder as well. I recieved a check from them just now and decided to research it and it turns out it is another one of those fraud companies so I will not be cashing the check or anything. The reason Im on this web site is to let anyone else know that is falling a victim of these things to be carefull and if it seems too good than it most likely is too good. Also is there a way someone can get some kind of investigation going on all of these it seems like a lot of people have been affected by it. For everyone that has been affected go on www.ic3.gov and let them know what happened so they can start some kind of investigation going and hopefully catch these people.

From: Lady Peggy Morrison,
Chelsea, SW3, England.

Here writes Lady Peggy Morrison, suffering from cancerous ailment. I
am a widow my husband Engineer Richard Morrison an Englishman who is
dead. My husband was into private practice all his life before his
death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without
child. My husband died after aprotracted illness. My husband and I
made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals
as he had passion for people who can not help themselves due to
physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact
that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 4 Million (four
Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his vast
estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK.
Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told
me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am
suffering from.

I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this
gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows,
widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden,physically challenged
children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped
financially.

It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this
decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and
I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly
manner,hence the reason for taking this bold decision.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
bank in UK. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will
empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund via my Lawyer. My
happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please always be
prayerful all through your life. Please assure me that you will act just
as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you
and members of your family.you can contact me through my private email
address:

i posted a watch for sale on internet. ireceived an e-mail from this person saying that he was away on a business trip at europe and would pay through international money order. finally when the money order arrived , i received 2 orders of $940.00 each, far more than the price of my item. i have been instructed to ship the item and the balance amount through western union to some address in france. the date of money order purchase is far behind the date i placed my ad. how do i determine if these are counterfeit money orers?

How do I verify if My CVS Traveler Express Money Orders are good? They are from out of State and I don't know the person who issued them. Is there a toll free number? I might call to check serial numbers and verify that indeed these are not counterfeits?
