Counterfeit Postal Money Orders

Lately, in a lot of the auction scams (E-Bay, Craig's List etc.), high quality counterfeit U.S. Postal Money Orders are being used to dupe victims out of their goods. Fraudulent e-mails, (internet fraud schemes) have been seen from Nigeria offering the counterfeit money orders as payment. It would be prudent to be cautious if someone tries to pay for goods, or services with them.

Be especially careful if you are asked to cash them and wire the money.

I hear that they are now showing up in Canada too!

Click on the title for information on how to ensure Postal Money Orders are legitimate.

If you are given an item you believe to be counterfeit, please notify a Postal Inspector.
