Now we are moving on to the postal money orders. This FDIC Special Alert is warning of Canadian Postal Money Orders. Consumer beware as the USPS won’t be long to follow.

October 14, 2003
TO: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (also of interest to Security Officer)
SUBJECT: Counterfeit Money Orders
Summary: Counterfeit Canadian Postal Money Orders are reportedly in circulation.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has been informed by the Canada Post Corporation (CPC) that counterfeit Canadian Postal Money Orders are in circulation. The layout and fonts of the counterfeit money orders appear similar to those used on the genuine items. The genuine money orders, however, can only be purchased for a maximum value of $999.99 (Canadian or U.S.) and display a beaver-shaped watermark on their front.

These counterfeit instruments have been presented to unsuspecting victims for payment of goods and services in both the United States and Canada. The authenticity of Canada Postal Money Orders can be verified by contacting the CPC at (800) 563-0444.

Any information you have about this matter should be brought to the attention of:
Mr. Denis Robillard

Ottawa, Ontario KIAOB1
Telephone: (613) 734-9772
FAX: (613) 734-4643
