I just purchased a Money order from the Speedway in Danville on the Sept. 16 to pay my landlord for my rent. My landlord deposited the money order and it was deemed invalid or void according to his bank. The bank returned the money order and we went back to speedway to get my money and they said no can do. They (speedway) in turn sent me to National City bank they would not cash it. So, i go to Cashland on Houstonville road they wouldn't cash it. They also sale the same money orders as Speedway but they won't cash it and walmart as well they all sell Money Gram Money order but will not cash them. This is a fair warning to you folk out there do not, I repeat do not Purchase any money order from speedway or any were that have money Gram. Their money orders are no good and you can have your mony tied up for a whole month.
I have talked with a local Police officer and this is not the first incident with speedway and the Money Gram Money orders.

I just received a fake money order from speedway as well for $930.50 I knew something wasn't right when I looked at it...it appears fake so I called money gram and they said they have no record of this money order. I am going to the police.

Same thing happened to me about a year ago with the Speedway moneygram. Mine was around $400 and it was over two months before National sent me a check to return the money. I am not in a position to have $400 "lost" for 2 months and I spent several hours on the phone, being a fairly annoying b!tch to get the money back. Get travelers checks, cashiers checks or money orders from the bank.

Someone says they are sending me Speedway money orders by UPS, who is this person sending out fake and false money orders and checks. Why don't the Obama Administration do something to stop this internet bandit? Obama claims he knows all about the internet, it appears he lied and is not as knowledgable as Bush was.

I was contacted by a suppose business administrator for a Fabric Co. and I will be receiving payments from customers in the form of Speedway Money Orders . My job is to take them to my Bank , Cash them and return 90% to the Co. and my pay as an on-line secretary/collector is 10% . Afterward I am to sent the Co. the 90% via Western Union while deducting the wiring fee as well from the Co's. 90%. It seems a bit odd but I guess the Bank will know if they are legit payments or not . If it envolves any holding against my against my account they are out of luck but , I would like to know : Who else has been approached to work for this Fabric Co.

I actually work at Speedway, so let me clear something up. We are only a 3rd party for Moneygram. We can't take a money orders back for larger amounts of money because we dont keep money in our register. It's not fun being robbed. There is a strict policy as to how much money in our drawers and I have seen multiple people get fired for it. I can assure you that the money orders we print are not fake, if you had one returned that is on Moneygram and need to take that up with them. I have never had anyone come to me that a money order was bad. Ever thought your bank made a mistake? The other person that said there was a hold on their account...a money order is seen as a check to most banks. There is a hold on anything that is not cash. If i can help in any other way let me know

Same scam different design. Hire you a a consultant to evealuate Walmart and write a report about the service and products. Deposit the 2 checks totalling 1,700.00 keep 230.00 and Western Union the balance back to them supposedly to test Western Unions service...YEAH RIGHT!!!

No one is going to give you free money. Especially not thousands of dollars.

Common sense people. Use it.
