Funny how things go. A person who was suppose to be my friend whom i met online, said he'd help take care of my family. He asked me my husband's name, so without thinking I gave it. The money orders finally arrived, 5 of them for $925 each, totalling $4625. Wal-mart Financial money orders. We cashed them at a local store. A week later, found out they were counterfeit. Meanwhile, the person who sent them was having a fit, because we used the whole of the money,(orginally told to use them as we needed to). He wanted me to send him some of the money back. We were told we could be facing up to 12 different federal charges, which means we could lose everything, and my husband could lose his daughter if we went to jail. I filed a police report with the sheriff's department. God knows, if I had known they would be counterfeit, I would not have allowed this to happen. This person has refused to make good on the money orders, said he lived in New Orleans, La. but was in West Africa w/ his mother. Go figure. The money orders were written in Texas, and sent from California. Now I have to figure out how to pay for these, to clear our names, so I can get this guy prosecuted. He said his name was Solomon David. I need help. Ifanyone can help me get these paid or knows who can (I'd pay them back as I could) PLEASE let me know. I can't let my husband lose his daughter or anything over this. I shouldn't have given his name to this guy, let alone my own name. Would someone please help me fix this, please. I didn't know the money orders were counterfeit. So please, for the sake of my husband's child, someone please help me.

write a letter/summary of what happened to you (you can view mine at )

Then go to's_check.htm and send that letter to every place on that list. I would also suggest sending that letter to the media to try and get even more attention to this scam and your case.
