:oops:
I feel so dumb. I got an email from an Alexander Da Silva about a job opportunity. I would get paid $800/week to distribute his goods throughout the US. I hate my job and this sounded so good so I went for it. Like 2 weeks later I received 4 walmart money orders for like $820 a piece. I live check to check so this was a lot of money to me. So I sent him money via Western Union. I just now found out that they were fake. I am completely upset. I am embarrassed. Now we know that we will not have any money until this debt is paid off with our bank. I cannot believe that this is happing to me. I hate those people that use whit, charm and opportunity to get over on unsuspecting people.
As of right now, we havent talked to the bank or anything. What should we do now?

I'm so sorry that this happened to you. I will wait for the pro's on this site to tell you what to do next, because they know better than I do. I just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone, so many people have had this happen just the way it happened to you. I wish you luck in working your way through this.

You can start by reporting the scam to all of the places listed on the resource page of our site
http://scamvictimsunited.com/resources_ ... _check.htm

What state are you in? Sometimes the Attorney General's office can be a big help.

I have also been scammed by the walmart wire money scam
they would fedex (next day) two $900 money orders to me
I would deposit it to my account, the next day they money would clear
and I would wire it. never did i expect this to happen
I am so extra careful about everything since I have also been a victim of ID theft. ( that is very overwhelming for me but I'm keeping calm and a cool head)

The company's name is "North american service evaluators"
http://www.nasevaluators.com
they claim to be in california but instructed me to send the money to Canda. I called this horrible company several times and sent emails and faxes asking them to fix the problem and that i am seeking legal action

I have filed a police report and complaints with all the agencies I could think of and used the links from this website
Lawyers are not being very helpful and are blowing me off!

one of the packages sent to me was sent from a horse racing company in canada so I assume they used to money to bet on horses! disgusting!!

I hope someone can reslove this issue.. I am out several thousand dollars
I pray everyday and hope that this scam and the perps are put behind bars for a long time.

I want to thank all of you who posted about this scam with nasevaluators. My husband received a call from this company. They made it seem very legit. They sent, vis FedEx, 2 money orders for $900 each with a letter, customer evaluation tool, and weekly time schedule. We even called Travelers Express Company, Inc where the money orders were drawn on by US Bank. They were able to verify how much the money orders were for and that they were cashed. When we checked the Better Business Bureau for North American Service Evaluators. Their rating is an F. BBB feels the company is a scam. Checked BBB for Traveler Express Company and they received a good rating. We were very close to falling for the scam until we read your posts. I am sorry for all who fell prey to this scam but am very grateful for your posts. We have to warn people about this scam. They make it very tempting to fall prey. We believe that Travelers Express Company must be in on the scam. If it seems to good to be true, it must be....A SCAM!

It might not make you feel better about being taken, but I have posted that fake website, and a mirror site using the same text, on a forum that specializes in getting fake sites like these shut down. Thank you for posting the URL, as killing the sites will save others from becoming victims of this scam.

Here's the situation.
I'm selling the car(an old Benz) for $1000. A buyer emails me( I advertised it on the web) asks about the condition and such.

Finally he say He's going to try and find a shipper and would get back to me.

Next day he emails back and claims to have a shipper lined up. He'll pay me an extra $100 to work with the shipper to gain access and such.

The shipper wants paid upfront, so I recieved (3) $950 Walmart money orders for payment on a car I have for sale.

I received the Money orders today. So I went to Walmart and cashed them. I shared my fear that they were counterfeit, with the people at Walmart. They said they appeared to be good and cashed them.

At the moment I have $2850 in my pocket. I'm supposed to wire $1750 to the shipping company.

How should I proceed?

Dont spend any of that money, dont send any money to the shipper or the buyer - this sounds very much like a scam.

It's definately a scam! Take that money back to the Walmart where you cashed it ask to speak to the manager. Let them know the story behind it and that because of the circumstances you think they may be counterfeit. Once they come back bad, you'll be spared trying to pay it all back to Walmart and quite possibly avoid criminal charges as well as jail time.

Walmart cashed them? they are the remitters, I cannot believe they cashed counterfeits, their own counterfeits.............

I just came across your website and had sign up and reply to this post. I too fell for this scam. I got a "job offer" and in it was a website address. That's why I thought it could be legit. Well they sent me 6 money orders for $950 each. They were money gram money orders from Walmart. So I called money gram and found out they were indeed fake. Good thing I did, I would have been in a big hole if I cashed all those money orders.

I, too, have been scammed but I'm working with the right people to do something about this... would you mind contacting me. I need to find people, "cases" like mine to put together so that my case can be taken further if not the only three cases that have been reported will go "filed" which we all know what that means. Please send me your story! Anyone!!!

I was contacted via email, mailed (fed ex and usps) counterfeit money orders, cashed and verified by Wells Fargo employee, and now my account is overdrawn. And, I Western Unioned the money. Now here I am pennyless and distraught. Luckily, I figured it out before the bank did, if not I would be looking at felony charges, too. Bank is not helping any either.

Please contact me PLEASE Help me get cases together so that we can recover our own money at least.

LET'S DO SOMETHING TOGETHER!!!

Depending on the store policy, each walmart can decide whether to cash the MONEYGRAM WALMART money order AFTER calling the toll free MONEYgram number.

These things dont' get cashed without being called in first guys!

I work for walmart and have seen a lot of these fake money orders come through. Whatever story the customer comes in with, we check with Moneygram to see whether this moneyorder is in good standing. 100% of the time the money order was made out to a different date for a much smaller amount. Scammers are using old moneyorder numbers and the $850 amount to collect money- unsuccessfuly anyway since WE ARE INSTRUCTED TO CALL THE POLICE. *** YOU WILL BE ARRESTED IMMEDIATELY REGARDLESS OF WHAT SITUATION YOU ARE IN!*** whether you are aware of it or not you are involved in the scam directly by transporting money!

I strongly advice ALL victims to contact their local police AS SOON AS they get a money order for this amount with money order stub or complete money order- if not, you'll be arrested like many of the victims on this site who complain about their situation.

I somewhat feel sympathetic for the victims but not really. Victims- you will not get money for free! if someone tells you that they will give you a cut. percentage or set amount from the amount they're expecting call the police and send them all your evidence! do not try to cash any money orders from them~!

ONE DEFINITE RED FLAG is anything dealing with nigeria!

I have learned from customers being scammed that the people " from nigeria" are picking up money from different countries.

DO NOT CONTINUE ON WITH CASHING SUSPICIOUS MONEY ORDERS

believe me! you are not helping ANYONE out- you dont' have any relatives of any kind living in some other country that just died and gave you a huge inheritance- that woman you are talking to is not some poor mother trying to cash a check that she is not able to- and you are not going to get any amount of money from some large amount a person claims!

DONT BE STUPID!

for more information to protect yourself from these types of scams and any scams involving MONEYGRAM go to this website! Educate yourself and protect yourself!
