Fake Postal Orders

Probably like me you thought Postal Orders are a safe means of paying for something on eBay etc. After all to get a P.O you have to go into a Post Office and hand your money over the counter. Not like a cheque where you can write one out for an amount that you dont actually have in any account.

I have recently sold an item on eBay which was paid for by two P.O's I paid these into my Bank and the amount of £372 appeared on my Bank statement.

I waited 4 days and then sent off my item and yes youve guessed , the next day I had a letter from my Bank saying the P.o's were fraudulent and the £372 has been taken off my account !!

I have spent the money and now I am out of pocket by no mean amount.

So beware.
