I'll hope scott lets this be posted here,I was told the other day,a new round of counterfeit postal money orders has hit the streets,really nothing is 100% anymore,Money orders,Pay Pal,checks,etc,if you do get a postal money order,especially a large one,just don't let it sit there and ship the merchandise,be sure you cash it first and have money in hand.

Make sure the Money order is legitimate then cash it. If not you could be paying back who ever cashed it. The Post office and Bank are best at regonizing if it is a fraudulent M.O. or not.

Yep , thats why PERSONAL Checks are ALL I take, when it clears , no turning back like Bank Checks and P.O.s. They can come get the funds back. Personal checks are 100% safer , clear or no clear and if you "ask" when you deposit it for "available funds" , they usually can tell you with one phone call.
