Money Order Scambait

I received 4 money orders for $910 each. Tried confirming it with MoneyGram, but they cannot be verified. Will take a picture of them when I get home from work......back in the saddle again!!!

Hello Jack Devlin,

I am sorry for the delay before getting your first payment, it is due to the fact that this is the first time my clients will be paying me like this and they all want to get it right. The delay will only be this once, subsequent payment will get to you faster. However, your first payment will be delivered to you soon by UPS and the Tracking Number is (1Z3831W20196713834). You can go to www.ups.com/us for Verification. If you missed the Package, Please Kindly check your Front Door, Porch or Garage if it was dropped there.

*PLEASE NOTE*
As soon as you get the package I want you to take it to your Bank for Cashing, As soon as you are given the cash, I want you to take out your 10%, and forward the Remaining funds to my Business Associates in West Afric a through WESTERN UNION

Below is the information you will need to send the money to my associates via Western Union.

Send $2000 to Shormey Nortey

Shormey Nortey
1290 mathew henson drive
Accra Ghana
Ghana 23321
Test question and answer Favorite Colour Blue.

Send the remaining funds to Victoria Obuobi

Victoria Obuobi
1014 Fernway Street
Accra Ghana
Ghaha 23321
Test question and answer Favorite Colour Blue.

That’s all you need to send the money via western union money transfer. When you have sent the money, I would need the following details before the money can be pick up;

1. MTCN: it’s a Ten Digit Number that would be given to you at the western union office.
2. Sender’s Name: that would be your name or any name you use in sending the money.
3. Amount Sent: that would be the exact figure you sent after taking your 10% and also the western union charges.


Best R egards,
Terry Banks.

Mr. Banks,

I have not received the payment as you said, although I live with 6 other guys. Who signed for it?

Thanks,
Jack

Terry,

I finally got through to his cell. He signed for it this morning, and then took the envelope with him to work. He has some jobs in Atlantic City today, but should be back later this afternoon. I just hope he doesn't open it, because he has a bit of a gambling problem.

I'll keep you updated!
Thanks,
Jack

Re: Money Order Scambait

Click on the image to enlarge.



This is what I recevied via UPS today. 4 money orders at $910 each. I've baited so many of these check scams lately, that I'm not sure which one it's from...but it really doesn't matter.

This post is to educate. I do this because my neighbor and good friend was scammed twice. My Step-Sister was scammed. And the one that gets me the most - my 82 year old Grandmother was scammed. Not by this particular one, but in my mind they're all the same!

I did a little research. This is what I found on MoneyGram's website:

Can I cash a MoneyGram Money Order for my customer?
Yes, however, it is important to note that MoneyGram Money Orders will not be paid if they have been forged, altered, stolen, counterfeited or previously refunded. Recourse for returned money orders is only against the endorser. This means that persons or businesses receiving a MoneyGram Money Order should accept it only from those known to them and against whom they have effective recourse.

If you are uncertain about cashing a MoneyGram Money Order, you may contact us at (800) 542-3590 and we will provide you with the current money order status. We cannot, however, guarantee final payment or amount.


I called the 800 number and they asked for the number on the side of the check that started with an R. At this time, these are not valid money orders. She was very nice, and advised me to wait 4 days and call back to verify again.

Of course they will never verify. The idea is for me to cash these money orders, and send them their $1800 immediately. Once the bank realizes these checks are invalid,it's too late. An EZ scam, and apparently the most popular right now - as we've all seen in recent threads.

Again, this part of the thread is to inform and educate. Now...on with the baiting!

Mr. Banks,

I just returned from the Atlantic City Police Station where they are holding my roomate Dale. He was arrested for DUI, Possesion of a Controled Substance, and Possesion of an Unregistered Hand-Gun. I got a chance to talk to him, but unfortunately his bail is too high for me to help out. The car he was driving has been impounded, and the UPS envelope is in the back seat. I'm hoping his Father can bail him out tomorrow, otherwise he will be in there another 4 to 5 days until he goes to court.

I feel terrible that this is happening during our first transaction. It's not the start I was hoping for. However, I will get your money to you as soon as I can. Let's just hope his Father has enough bail money.

I'm very sorry....it's been a very long day!

Jack

Re: Money Order Scambait

This sitathome.com bs is starting to get on my nerves, and now the large fonts and adolescent bickering has invaded my thread. Can we please put an end to this?!

Might I point out that this is a website to help people NOT GET SCAMMED. There have been many questions and debates going on with the "check cashing " scheme, and now I finally go someone to send me money orders. I doubt anyone will take this bait serious anymore thanks to the spillover of the sitathomecashdaily.com thread.

Can we please get back to what this site is all about??

Terry,

I am writing to you from an ocean view room at the Tropicana in Atlantic City. I debated this in my head for hours, but I decided to cash the money orders and try to double it up at the tables. Well, not only did I double up...I quadrupled it!! I'm sitting on my bed with my laptop and staring at $8600 worth of casino chips. I had the best run at the tables of my life...BlackJack, Roulette, 3-Card Poker - I won at all of them!!

Unbelievable!!! I couldn't have done this without you. I got my roomates car out of impoundment, and have all this money left over.

I'm going down to The Palm for a huge and expensive steak dinner. I'll email you tomorrow!

Love,
Jack
