  2. have received dozens of these checks/postal money orders over the last 10 years and they are all fake. even contacted a property management company and found they were missing over $50,000 from the same guy from their account. cops don't help so don't call them. instead contact the bank or account holder to let them know. there is never a real check involved when the payment exceeds the amount due and when the person doing business with you is not in the same state as where the check came from. last one I got was from a person in Nevada, account was in California located in one city and the alledged account owner was in Arizona. THREE RED FLAGS.

  3. I can’t help but share the experience I had with a Scammer and how I recovered my stolen Tax Refunds through the help of a professional private investigator. I’m so glad that I contacted hacker Gavin who helped in tracking and apprehending the scammer and I got back my tax refunds money that has already been paid to his account through IRS. All I did was share my tax filling details with Cyberhackinggenius and the scammer was tracked through my refunds that IRS has already deposited into his bank account. I was able to recovered 95% of my stolen IRS Tax Refund and he is finally behind bars where he truly belong. If you need help recovering your stolen Tax Refund from scammers then you can contact this great hacker “Gavin” via Gmail  (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later!

  4. I’ve been in contact with an agent from Los Angeles, CA because my
    scammer sent me a check, and when I called the company it was drawn off of, they said it was fraudulent, I ended up faxing a copy to them, they then contacted this agent and he called me and has been working with me on my case, but he told me they are swamped with theses cases, and NOT to expect to get any or very little of the the money back. You can report your case to this agent through https://www.la-acfe.com certified government officials that offers a list of investigation and restitution services for free and can assist and support you through this difficult time. reporting the scam is very important even tho most of us are too embarrassed to report it.

  5. The bank should not release funds…. If banks have no recourse why would they hold any checks?? Banks should hold checks until 100% funds are cleared, meaning 100 confirmed and approved as good funds. Banks say people should wait 2 weeks until the funds clear 100%

    TO THOSE Saying people are morons by falling for these scams…. Let's see. Why are applications like Zelle or Cash good and instantaneous? Why can't funds on a check be confirmed like these apps do?

    Imagine you hired a contractor, gave him a check, funds come out of your account, contractor has not shown up or called for a few days, you call the contractor and ask him when he'll start the work…. then he says: Well, I was burn with a cashier's check before, and the bank says that for me to make sure funds are 100% good… I'll have to wait 2 weeks… We appreciate your business but after 2 weeks have passed we will start the work…. Don't worry, you only have 10 more days to go! How would you feel? AHHHHHH…. Like a moron?

    I will try waiting 2 weeks with my next clients. I am a contractor… I will report back and see how furious they feel.

    I was scammed out of $4,000 for not being cautious and for going ahead and performing work after someone gave me a cashier's check.

    Now let's see how home owners feel when I do not show up for 2 weeks after they pay me. FAIR IS FAIR!!!

    Banks are not doing all they can and this is the way it will have to be, I am not going to extend credit to anyone… I am not a bank. They bank needs to do its job in securing funds, keeping money safe, and sticking to their decision when they approve funds and make them available to me. Otherwise I will just use Zelle, CashApp, etc. These has to be a better way!!!
