Ah well. She was just trying to get what was owed to her. She is finally getting it. A criminal record. Shanikamelea, it's too bad you don't read the paper or listen to the news sweetie. People who try to steal or commit fraud get locked up. You are obviously pretty dumb to think you would pass counterfeit postal money orders to a postal employee. Get a job you loser. BTW, I completely agree with OhWellShitHappens.

There is a big scam going on with things being sold on Crailgs List. These scammers arrange to buy something from you, and send you 3 or 4 $850.00 US postal money orders. Then they call and tell you they sent the wrong checks to you, and ask you to deposit them, and forward the balance to another address. A friend of mine went through this, obviously didnt fall for it, and now toys with these people. I've seen the fake checks that he has received (all for $850.00, but from different people), and they do look authentic.

another newsdump masterpiece. hey joe mallia when the woman tried to cash the money orders at the post office was she arrested immediately or did that incident happen days or weeks before and was arrested later. and if thats the case did she leave her name and address at the post office thus allowing the cops to find out who she was? maybe joe mallia should stick with accident reports. at least you can get a good laugh from them

The diversity of the crimes committed by the diversity in Uniondale never fails to amaze me.

But it pays to keep a sense of humor. There's one baby daddy who's been hustling for the same quarter to get on the same bus to get to the same job interview for nine years now. I keep telling him he needs to freshen up his act or maybe learn to tap dance.

I fell for this Postal money order scam as a person in Hawaii sent me 3 postal money orders wanting me to send my handmade items to the address on the letter. I went to the Post office and had them checked and the postal employee told me they were good, had all the watermark securities, and said she would cash them if she had the funds available. I checked the mailing address on the letter and it was also good so I cashed one of them and started my woodwork for the person. I was waiting to see if it come back bad, but had no problems as the post office said it was good. I cashed the other 2 and on July 14, 2009 my wife called and said the postal money orders came back. Now I'm stressed, probably in trouble as I do not have the money on hand to pay back this money where I cashed them. I have the items I made just sitting here and now I'm afraid at what may happen to me just for taking an order, checking everything out with the Postal Service, getting the ok, then cashing them to buy my supplies and things for the job. Will someone please tell me what to do. I've reported this to the authorities and the U.S. Postal Service, but no contact yet.
