I sorta knew it all along, but I was hoping for the best. That $3,000 money order is no good. I got this email from that woman:
How are you doing.there is a mix-up in the payment my assistant sent to you, after reconciling my account, I discovered that She sent an over payment to you. The payment meant for another item was sent to you in error,i want you to cash it deduct your money and western union charges send the balance back to me via western union money transfer to my details below
NAME OF RECEIVER: JENNIFER WILLIAMS
ADDRESS:24 KENSINGTON HIGH ST
COUNTRY: UNITED KINGDOM
ZIP CODE: W8 4PT
Make sure you take care of that today and give me the transfer details MTCN AND AMOUNT SENT .So that i can arrange for the pick up as soon as possible I wait to read you
At least I didn’t spend any of the money, and I called my bank and told them what happened. They said I will probably be charged a $10 fee and the guy sounded really sympathetic in telling me it’s not my fault.
I guess the possibility of having an extra $3000 was fun while it lasted. If I was truly depending on that money I would’ve been a little more pissed. The money order looked so real! Even the teller couldn’t tell the difference.
I’m going to send a little hate mail to that address she gave. I encourage you to do the same. Is there a way to report her? Probably not I’m guessing.
