Received a BMO "Canadian & Draft" for $2500.00 For an item sold for $265.00. Instructed to give the remaining funds to his "shipper" who will come to pick up the items sold, at my home at my convenience. The BMO address is 2 king street west, Kitchener, ON.(it is a BMO) The stamp on the envelope was from the London, ON post office. The guy said he was out of the country, in Paris.
This "money order" (canadian and draft) whatever, looks old. The paper is yellowy, the watermark of the banks emblem/symbol on the back is supposed to disappear when held up to the light and it doesn't. My name and amount were handwritten, no date was written.
I went to the BMO here and looked at a real one, fairly close but different.
Looking closer at the signing officers on the bottom, there are 2 signatures, one in black ink one in blue, one is a longer name than the other, but it is signed by the same person, too many similarities in it to be fluke.

We as well received a Canadian Bank Draft from the Bank of Montreal for the amount of $2500. He asked for us to send the remaining balance through western union to a mrs florence jeff in nunhead london. We went to the Bank of Montreal this morning and was told that it wasnt any good. That it was the old one and that they dont use them anymore. The email address of the person that did this to us is [email protected]

the same thing that happened to Melany is what happened to me. The bank let me know right away so nothing really came of it. I was urged to go to the police with this information. My question is: did anyone else go to the police? did you write back to this guy to let him know? What was your way of resolving the issue?

My Wife and I received a BMO "Canadian & Draft Money Order" for $3500.00. This was for an item sold for $1000.00. Included instructions to give the remaining funds to his shipper who will come to pick up the item sold, at our home at our convenience. The BMO address is 2 king street west, Kitchener, ON. The stamp on the envelope was from "Priority France". The guy said his shipper was picking up more items for him in Paris France.
This money order, looks old. The paper is yellowy, the watermark of the banks symbol on the back is supposed to disappear when held up to the light and it doesn't. My name, date and amount were handwritten. The signing officers on the bottom have 2 signatures, one in black ink one in blue, one is a longer name than the other, but it looks to be signed by the same person.

Was suppose to Western Union the remaining funds to:

Wow.....so it seems this is pretty common!
I also received a $2,500 BMO money order for an item "sold" online for $120! Same old story: I was to give the over pay to the "shipper" along with the goods. The guy I dealt with also claimed to be in Paris (strange they're all from the same place?!)

In any case, if someone has figured out a good way to deal with this and reduce the chance of this happening to others in the future let me know so that I may also pursue it.

Got the same thing, same Paris address, instuctions to send the remaining money to France to his shipper for other items. Looked it up on the internet and behold a fraud!! Really, what would someone really do if they were genuinely interested in a $600.00 item, and he sends me $3000.00....give me a break!!!

I got one too!!! but I did not know about all of these scams, I am now knowing about it all after all is said and done! I owe my bank 2900.00. And I am scared of other things that can happen to me, like getting arrested. I withdrew the money and met the person in front of a store because they were going to get things for the kids that I was going to be watching. WOW, I am not able to sleep because of this now! What should I do? I got 2 of them, one looked fake and the other one looked really real. The fake one I still have and I think that I am taking that to the cops.

This is too funny, my item was selling for $144.00 and the fake money order was for $3500.00. The person that I was dealing with went by the name of Ben Smith saying that the shipper is Roy Eric. I learned about this scam from dealing with a "women" named Jessica Menze. Again the same story, item for $144.00 and money order for $2500.00. Didn't fall for any of it! However he threated me with the athorities.

Funny, I feel upon this site. I am in the middle of a transaction right now with the [email protected]
I know about the scam but I told him to send the money order as I figure he has to pay for that out of pocket. I called Western Union and all they suggested was to stop all communications. I'm waiting on the cheque then I call the local police station and the RCMP hotline. Since I live next to Kitchener I was kind of hoping that the money order will BMO Kitchener.
You think the guy would atleast change his email address...sheesh...
Boat selling for $1000 let's see what the cheque will be.

same blade of grass.....different shade of green!
400$ item...got 2500.00 cheque. Arrange pick up, arrange pay back via Western union blah blah blah...how trusting are we? Good to be Canadian.
Thank you to all you posters I feel stronger (a.k.a smarter).
The only part different in my response from my "buyer" after my response about "how I was cancelling the transaction" was the excuse that he was paying his "shipper" the difference as the monies were owed for the purchase of a truck!
I should have told him I had a truck for sale!
