My husband heard from one of these payment processing scam people. He received the Money Orders, and cashed them. He went to Western Union to send the money 3800 dollars.
I immediately got a bad feeling, and asked him to cancel the wire. He cancelled the wire and got back all but the costs of the transfer. I consider us very lucky. We did not know anything about scams before this.
We lost about 114 dollars times two for sending money to Nigeria. The cashier's checks from bank of the west have not bounced yet. We deposited the money from the Western Union back in the bank. We have a big enough balance to cover when the counterfeits bounce and the fees. However what else should we do? My husband did not give them any information bank etc. He didn't open any urls from them that would log keystrokes. What else should we do?
Was it money orders or cashier's checks?
Break contact with the scammer, contact the bank, redeposit the money. Do not accept any more forms of payment from people you do not know. They WILL send you more checks, they will continue to try to find a way to coerce you to send them money.
