Has anyone found a way of getting back the money we were scammed out of? It's been 2 years and I've heard nothing either from the police or the postal inspectors on this matter. Guess our government really doesn't give a crap about it's people after all. I'm still trying to pay back the bank at $25.00 a month. I'll probably die before it's paid off. Any answers write me (link below)
thanks. Bev

PS, I tried suing the bank but just ended up spending more money, they brought their paper full of little tricks. Since tellers are supposedly up to date on such matters I want to know why 2 different tellers never caught it that they were frauds. Banks that cash them in the first place should be held accountable as well, I'm sure they have insurance for this sort of thing.

Sincerely,
still no satisfaction in So. Ca.

HAVE BEEN PAYING THE $25.OO TO THE BANK THRU THEIR LAWYERS FOR YEARS NOW AS OF TODAY 12-8-12 I RECEIVED THIS MONTHS MONEY ORDER BACK FROM THEIR LAWYERS SAYS THEY NO LONGER ARE THE B OF A 'S COLLECTOR. I HAVE AN UNEASY FEELING THAT THE BANK IS SENDING IT TO A COLLECTION AGENCY. NOT TOO LONG AGO I INQUIRED ABOUT MY BALANCE AND IT HAS NEVER GONE DOWN IT HAS GONE UP BY $1,300.00. I AM SO FRUSTRATED WITH ALL CONCERNED IN THIS MATTER. IS THERE NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE IN THIS DAY AND AGE??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????I LIVE ON A FIXED INCOME AND I'M NOW 65 YEARS OLD. SO SICK OF THIS WHOLE MATTER. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Your case is not even being investigated. You can bet on that.

I am sorry to say that there is no good answer to your question. Since the scammers are in another country, our law enforcement will not go after them, so you will not get your money back that way.

(armac will probably not like this next part) The only situations that I know of where a victim has recovered a portion of the money lost is when they have taken the bank to court. Most of the cases, like ours, come to an out of court settlement between the bank and the victim.

I did just that. Took the B of A to court. I figured their tellerd should have been more intelligent than they were. But to no avail. The bank has their many loopholes, so just wasted another $52.00.
Are you telling me that the postal inspectors are'nt doing anything about this either? Guess it's just one of those hopeless cases. As a matter of fact the scammer just had the nerve to send me an e-mail asking how I was doing and stating that he was being a good boy now. Boy, that was a laugh. Sincerely, Beverly

Some of these types of cases work out better than others. The ones where people actually have a lawyer assisting them seem to go better, but you are right there are a lot of things that the bank has on their side, like the agreement that everyone signs when they open an account which has a lot of legal stuff in it (and let's all admit it, how many people really read all of it and then remember all of it with each transaction that they make at the bank?)

They are in the same situation as the banks . . . someone is getting a hold of one of their documents and making copies/counterfeits . . . unless you find the person you can't stop them.

In all honesty what can a Postal Inspector do, if you deposit a check or money order in your account that was printed in Africa or Canada?
If the other government is not willing to cooperate our agents are basically powerless.

Call your Senator or some other lawmaker, that agent your dealing with has limited powers, only in the US.
