What is it going to take to stop these crooks from making fake money orders and sending them to people FedEx, to try and go cash them, keep 10% and then send them the rest of the money via money order. I turned mine into the Postmaster.

I recently (3days ago) had gotten one of those. I called the bank that the "cashier's check" was supposedly drawn on. the person I spoke to recommended going to my local Police Dept and file a report. I did that & the officer I spoke to said that unless I was at a loss, they wouldn't take a report. Then he referred me to the D.A., I went there, actually persuaded them to let me talk to someone & again said they couldn't do anything unless there was a police report. After all of this happened, I received an email requesting confirmation of ownership of my house. This got me paranoid so I went to the FBI's website & reported it there. The FBI is currently investigating theses types of scams. The website you need to go to is www.IC3.gov. You should post everything you possibly can about it. I did my research before I submitted my claim. I called the bank that the cashioer's check was supposedly drawn from, I tracked the "letter" through the UPS website and found out where it was mailed from. There's only one more thing I have to do to give myself confidence that I did everything I possibly could to give the FBI as much information as possible. I did so much research on it, that I impressed the Assistant D.A. She gave me a thumbs up with going into the direction of investigating, which is why I am currently going to college for my AA in Criminal Justice. However you received the money order, keep everything you have. DO NOT THROW IT AWAY!!! If you report it to the FBI, they will want you to keep possession of any documentation for proof if they decide they need it. I hope this helps!!!! Definitely go to that website though and report it. Calling won't do anything, they'll just refer you to the website anyway.

That's what I was doing too. Then 3 days ago, actually received a "cashier's check" for $2,500. The part that freaked me out, is that they have my home phone number too! I have no idea how these people got my information. I was also advised to keep an eye on my credit report to ensure that I do not become a victim of identity theft.

The interesting part of my situation is; the return address on the UPS label showed a college in Massachussetts, the "cashier's check" was supposedly drawn from a bank with a Pennsylvania address, and the package was originally sent from Anchorage, Alaska.

I have since realized that I have done all I can do & i'm not going to worry about. Especially since I have all of the info and I reported it to the FBI. I copy and save the emails too. I want these people caught and wouldn't be able to look at myself everyday if I didn't do whatever I could to help.

I have several different UK lotteries in my emails that ask for personal information. Thanks for the website.

Well, if you all didn’t already know this is what you do....

When signing up for an account, an offer over the website or buying something do not give them your personal email address... This is just like giving your home address and phone number out when you enter that drawing for a new car… What they do is sell you email to others and then you get all this BS junk mail, it’s called a marketing tactic. Also if you have the option it will ask can we send you more information via email make sure that box is un checked. Always keep a personal one and then one for junk (junk = for buying things).

To solve the problem of junk email just disable your email address for a week then un-disable it or just close it all together and get a new address. Normally when they get mail back they'll stop emailing you... Or you can email each one asking them to stop sending you mail….So you have options just a pain that we have to go around them to prevent it….

But heck what a better way to get business when someone is WILLING to give them their info….
