I got fake USPS money orders worth 3000 USD frm one person,who claimed to be a model,who was stuck up in Nigeria. I deposited the money orders,which were cleared the next day. I wired 3000 USD to Nigeria.After 2 weeks the bank deducted the amount saying the money orders were fake.Meanwhile, I was sent with more fakies worth 7500 USD. I took them to a different bank,and they straight away said that the money orders are fake. I immediately refused to send any money asked for. Now, im being black-mailed for more money, being told that my money would be returned only if I sent more money. I lodged a complaint with the FBI only yesterday and awating their response. Im in still in touch with the scammer,who doesn't know that I have seen through their fruad. I have promised them to send more money in the next 10-15 days, in a hope to get them nailed.

Is there anything I should do ? Plz help me.

They will keep telling you that until they run you dry . . . this is no money coming your way.

This can be dangerous. They are in another country, so there is no chance that any of the information that you have will really help to "get" them. I would break off contact with them. If they hreaten you, tell them that you turned all of their information over to the FBI and Secret Service.

I understanding wanting to "play around" with them . . . maybe you should check out a scambaiter site to learn more about doing this or you could give the scammer's contact information to some experienced baiters.

Break any and all contact, you cannot win a "game" with these guys, they are not from this country and the FBI has no jurisdiction.

Usually when a victim catches on to the scam and stops cooperating there's little to worry about. Scammers like these are out to get money and when you stop replying to their emails they will go away. Playing with them is called "baiting" and is intended to frustrate them and get them P.O.ed. Since they do have your address this isn't the way to go. They are likely thousands of miles away but they could have accomplices who are nearby. Get them angry enough and they might start thinking about revenge. You don't want one of these guys showing up at your door.

It's hard to bait fake MO scammers any way. You need an address for them to send their fake money orders to and that is connected to you plus after a few attempts they will realize you aren't sending them any more money so the bait comes to an end. Also you need to know the laws where you live. In some jurisdictions it is a crime to even possess a counterfeit money order even if you don't intend to cash it.

If however you really like the idea of baiting check out some baiting websites like 419 Eater and learn how to bait safely. Drop these guys from your personal email address and sign up for an email account that doesn't reveal your IP# then pretend to be a totally different person. Give them a fake address that doesn't exist and swear your landlord is stealing all their money. To prove it send them a picture of her new Porsche. Plenty of Porsche owners websites to get the picture from. :twisted:

I went through a group ......
PACIFIC FISH PROCESSING COMPANY LIMITED.
27/4 Moo7 Kaoseng-Jana Rd .
Roubchang,Muang,Songkhla 90000
Thailand.
They sent me $3,400.00 worth of bad USPS checks that look like the real thing and I took them to the Post office and they told me they were not real.
I am going to the postal inspectors office after work and turn them over to them with all the info and all the emails so that I can find a way of returning the favor they tried to scam on me....

I was recently taken on Counterfeit Travelers Checks and sent out over $2,100.00 to a group
Point Wear Limited [wearpoint000001@yahoo.com] This is there email and who they are. Then they turned around and sent me $9,500.00 worth of counterfeit travelers checks and was wanting me to do the same. When they never received them back or the money... They have been trying to scam and threaten me and I have pretty much told them to come to the states and do it here in my country. They stopped emailing.... lol...
