I don't understand how many people are actually dumb enough to think that these scams could even possibly be real!
Did you guys grow up in a bubble?
As long as there are idiots, there will be people scamming them!

I responed to one ad on Craigslist:
Scott Toomey
Full Scope Inc.

Seattle, WA 98108
Email: [email protected]
Date: October 31st, 2008
They sent me an "Acceptance offer" and said I would be receiving a payment in the mail to shop
anonymously "The objective of this assignment will be to evaluate the effectiveness and
efficiency of a payment system called "WESTERN UNION "which is available in your region." They wanted me to send a review. So, I received 3 Walmart Moneygrams in the amount of $710 each. I located the phone # of the guy that was on the return address and on the money orders themselves and called him. He told me the checks weren't real and he didn't send them.#s 20093381853,865 & 867

You would think by now the USA would be aware of all the scams from foreigners. Anything suspicious just ignore. I say hang em all for theft!

You can verify Moneygram money orders by calling Moneygram. They will be able to tell you if it was issued, cashed, or a stop payment was placed on it. I have noticed that the fraudulent money orders from Moneygram are much darker in color. The red is most notiecable. If you receive a money order or check and don't know why you've gotten it, then it's most likely not real. If you attempt to cash it at a bank, you could get into a lot trouble! And check cashers usually verify them before cashing.

Hi. Thank God for sites like this, we can save ourselves from those scam artists.

My husband received two Wal-Mart money orders via UPS mail. They looked so real. And we,like so many others, are facing some hard times. He is recovering from a heart attach and we are barely keeping our heads over the flood. So I was really hoping these checks were a God sent, but I knew, that it was too good to be true so I'd better check at out. Five minutes later, I found this site. So, I need to look no further. Thanks for letting me know it's just another scam. I Will contact the FBI site and hope they find the scammers, lock them up and throw away the keys.

call 1-800-542-3590 to see if they are counterfeit.
Our tenant received two money orders for $850.00 each through FedEx and went to Albertson's to cash them and went to jail for forgery and fraud and he will be charged with a Felony. He was unaware that these were fake money orders by an online selling company. He was just excited to be getting paid so who pays for this now and then he does.

I got a cashiers check last month to cash at US Bank and Wells Fargo. The one for Wells Fargo was actually a real person, but she did not send the check. I had to fill out a police report and print out the emails that was sent to me by these scammers. Im just greatful I didnt get arrested. So I called a US Bank branch and made an appointment with the manager to show the next check, just to save my behind to let them know in advance that it isnt I pulling the scam. They confirmed it was a fake... Full Scope Inc is a fake too. they had listed a phone number. I just literally tried to call and its not in service. Anything that deals with checks being sent without meeting the employer, I strongly suggest - RUN! I experimented with a lot of them and not one is real. Trust your gut, and if it is too good to be true. Youre right. Please be safe.

you got the right answer,, I was too brought into this nasty scam cycle..... So what happened? Mine is still under investiagation and boy did I have alot of special agents and etc call [email protected] in michigan
[email protected] is also a walmart money order scammer. This person sent me two walmart money orders for 1500 each to pay for a 200 item. I did not cash them and she has not asked for them back. They wanted me to deposit the money orders and bring the rest of the cash to the exchange in order to pay a "shipper". I believe on depositing the money orders they would have had my name address and bank account number. In addition to be being charged for forgery or fraud for using the walmart money orders. watch out for [email protected]

Yes, I am a sucker as well, I cashed an Albertsons money order for a friend because he had to work. I went to my bank and was given 950 dollars. I then gave the money to my so called friend. About 1 week later my bank took 950 dollars from my account.
After the fact I did some research, why don't banks know about this stuff and at least put a hold on it until it clears.
Banks should know more about this than we do

You are responsible for what you deposit, did you get your money back from your "friend" that had to work?

When the police got involved,
This so called friend wrote me a personal check for the amount of 950 dollars. My bank called and the checking account was closed back in november 2008. He actually wrote me a bad check on top of that.

I know I am responsible for this and I will bounce back from it. But really,
If the Albertson's money grams are a huge scam for such a long time, don't you think the banks would know not to cash these?

Still no money from the friend. I think I paid their electric bill.

there is a new Moneygram scam out!!!! This time it has to so with checks from BB&T and you have to basically do the same thing. My wife and I just got taken for 4700.00. I even researched scams involving Moneygram, and nothing came up about checks. I also researched the company and the website.....both VERY LEGITMATE. If you get a check from BB&T and asked to take a survey for Vortex Group, burn it!!!!

I too have received 2 money orders from SAFEWAYin the amount of 890.00 on both and 1 money order from ALBERTSONS in the amount of 960.00. I call the 800 number to see if this was fraud.(It is ) in the past I have also received 4 money orders total on each of 950.00 with the UNITED STATES on the money order. I did not cash - I was sure this also was fraud. I learning the best thing to do if you don't know the people - please don't cash. I like others, it's bad that this stuff is going on. As bad as I need the money I let it go. It's not worth going to jail over someones else GAMES. They just want your money. What they are hoping for is that you go ahead and put it in your account. Take your money and send them untill the bank ok the fake money orders or checks. Don't be stupid and put your money in in. They the ones that need help. This is also call money landry. Moving money to one county to another. Again the best thing to do is just throw away anything that is sent to you like that. I know this is hard to let that type of money go but you have too. Don't get put in jail over this
