I responded to an ad to take surveys in Houstonbackpage.com which is a free classified ad site. Wouldnt you know it I received 4 MO from fedex in the Amount of $650.00 apiece and who was I supposed to secretly assess? None other than western Union I was to cash the money orders and send some money to someone in denver colorado keep $500.00 and report the service I received. HA! The name used to post the ad was FRANK BRANSON with a bogus address out of Mendham NJ. I wrote the guy back and told him I wasnt going to jail for anyone and he should be ashamed of himself and what a loser he was. These people cant even use english properly which should be most peoples first clue. oh yeah also he has an email address that says email@example.com
so stay at home parents beware. At first I had no clue where these money orders had come from so I called walmart moneygram and the rep told me they were legitamite orders based on the MO Number I provided, but still I did not feel something was right so I went to some financial institutions and they said the system says it is ok but they just dont look right. One guy even said If I had tried to cash them at his office he would hold them and my ID until the police arrived. I hope we can get the word out there so people will stop being victimized.
