Someone is sending counterfeit money orders through numerous destinations passing it off as a model/photographer payment for a photoshoot. The money has been sent through NJ, MO, and Washington. Its next destination was Texas. We recieved 4 money orders with the amount of $850 on each one. We were instructed to go to the bank and cash it (where they wouldnt know if it was counterfeir or not). Instead we went to the post office and they verified that it was a counterfeit check and if we had gone to the bank to cash it, we would have been liable for the amount of money cashed. Post office investigators are on the hunt now. The serial numbers were fake, the name he went by was fake, and there was no USPS watermark on it although the counterfeit looked real. I would not like to be named in this peice for my personal saftey. I would just like to get out to people that if they recieve a money order, to cash it at the post office because the bank may not catch the counterfeit. Attached are the pictures of the money orders.
