I have in my hand 5 $900.00 money orders mailed to me from somewhere in Wisconsin. The envelope had no return address on it. I received an email from a man that claimed to have inherited his dad's textile business in the UK. He said they produced clothing materials that were purchased by companies in the US. He said they make payments that are not readily cashable the US so he needs someone in the states to work as a bookkeeper. He said all I had to do was receive the payments and take 10% for my pay and send the rest of the funds by MONEYGRAM to a person who would designate for me. He even emailed me an employment application to fill out. These are the first payments I have received and I did not know about these scams. Luckily my bank had been already received some counterfeit postal money orders and was being very cautious. They said these were fake. So, I called a number and checked the status on these money orders and they have all already been cashed. Who can I report this to?

It's a scam so run for your life . Did you get this offer off a job site ? There game is to get you to cash as many of these fake's as you can and wire the money before the bank catch's up to you . You will be heald responsable for every dollar. Don't do it just throw them in the trash there no good . On second thought keep one take a marker and put in big letter's on the back fake then frame it . This is so you can remember just how close you came to being scammed . And tell every one you know about this scam . Rebelx

I received the job offer via email. I am so glad that I did not get any of these cashed. Is there somewhere to report this? He is waiting right now for me to send him the MoneyGram information. He gave me a different mans name to Moneygram it to in London.

Call the Postal Inspector in your area, turn the m.o.'s over to them.

These are not postal money orders. These are TravelersExpress MoneyGram money orders.

I have in my hand, five counterfeit money orders for $1,000 each.
I was contacted by a man from yahoo personals.
He said he just left Wisconsin, to worl in England. He said that he had purchased them befor he left the US, but could not cash them in England.
He asked if I could cash them and send the money to him. He claimed to have sick daughters, that had been affected by the bomb in London.
I received the money orders to help the man and his daughters, I deposited them and waited for them to clear. The man constently asked me to send him money until his money orders cleared, but I did not. Every one Beware of these money order scams. So not try to help anyone you meet on line. They will only cause you greif.
I am out of money from a returned check fees, and dont know how to recoup. It has been an expensive lessons. And now I am afraid to help anyone anywhere.
This theifs name is Donald Calvin, and says he is from WI.
living in London.
I was sent a address to send the money to Chorley Lancashire UK

I met him through yahoo personals, and since then has promised me money. Every time he sends me some it is either fake travelers express money orders totalling $7000.00, or cashiers checks that are counterfiet totalling $8600.00.
I always called either moneygram or the bank before placing them in my checking account, and now im very glad i did that first.
The address he sent to to is:
Donald Calvin
16 Arthur St.
gl1 1qy, Gloucester Uk
g11qy
He also has sent me pics of himself with his girls. I have them on my hard drive. Now i feel like a total idioit thinking that I met the man of my dreams :cry: But if i can be any help, dont be afraid to ask.
