Dear Armac; I'm in the good old U.S. of A. of course. I mean no disrespect, and I appreciate you explaining who the FDIC protects, but since you work in the Banking Industry, I'm fairly sure that you knew 'what I was trying to say '
With All of Us that have gotten Beaten, and our Lives 'what they were' destroyed, we have contacted every organization from the FDIC, FTC, CPS,FBI, SS, BBB,,,,,,and any other series of letters we had the knowledge of and Nothing Has Been Done to Help Us, in any way shape or form.
If you are asking that I feel sorry for the Banking Industry, I don't. I did business with my Bank for over 30 years, and when I brought in 10 money orders it should have raised a Red Flag. I even called 2 days later when they told me the money orders would clear, to ask how to withdraw the funds, and they said 'write a personal check for the amount you want to withdraw', and that's it.
Please, you know as well as I do that Banks just take this as a Write-Off, just like Credit Card Companies do when their debt isn't paid.
We can't write our loss off on our Income Taxes.
The Postal Service hasn't lost any money.
They send the U.S.<<<Postal Money Orders Back to Our Banks, Credit Unions, (in some cases Credit Cashing Places), and then we are Stuck Trying to Figure out what to do.
I'm no vigilante, but I refuse to LIE down and let Banks get away with the fact that They Were Notified to Watch Out.
I have been computing since 1997, and Avoided every scam out there.
How was I to know that when someone got my Resume from Careerbuilders that looked and sounded legitimate; I checked him out with the BBB and his website; and trusted FedEx ; and had no idea that this Nightmare even existed.
It was 'not' until I took the second 'Job' directly to the U.S. Post Office to cash the money orders, rather than using my Bank that I was told 'they were all counterfeit'. Thank God !
So, the first deposit of $8200 bounced higher than a rubber ball, I got charged for every single money order; and every check I wrote for my bills in September bounced, and my Creditors are driving me crazy with me sending letters back and forth.
I Honestly don't believe this situation is hopeless, and I'm Very, Very, Grateful that Shawn has this forum.
Believe it or NOT, on September 7th I came home from the Post Office Scared to Death; typed in SCAM; and I found all of you.
Sorry if I have said anything that might get misinterpreted....if I did then I apologize.
I'm am not quitting.....
