I feel all of the above contributed to my stupidity but apparently I am left holding the bag for the loss of money. I am unemployed and received an email from Primal evaluation after answering some help wanted ads on Craigs list. They claim to be a shopping evaulation company and for simply evulating my shopping experience in sending funds to another individual per their instructions, I was to evaulate the expereince of the person that helped me and report back to this company. Never in my wildest dreams did it occur to me the money orders were fraudulent until I had already completed the first transaction and they immediately snet me my next assignment and the clerk at huntington had troulbe with his machjine reading the money orders. I still didn't think much of it until I got home last night and had urgent messages from Huntington bank security. When I call back thjey informed me the money orders were forgeries and I am responsible for the funds overdraft of my account when they come back to the bank as such. It says right on the Huntington bank receipt that funds are subject to verification yet the immediately allow you to withdraw the funds as soon as they are posted to your account...(the next business day). I followed trhe instructions as promply as
I could per the email instructions sent to me by primal evaulations and the money is lost of course. I just don't feel it is entirely my responsibility for the lost funds...I feel the bank played a paert as well by releasing the funds to me prior to being verified as it states on the receipt. And of course the scammer is the primary culprit and western union should require some type of ID when the funds are picked up.

  • Because of all of this Huntington Bank put a hold on the funds in my checking account which are legitimate funds from a christmas gift from my parents...I feel they should share in the burden of the lost funds along with Western Union changing their policy of just requiring the number to get those funds...Mr. Allen Franklin and or Gregory Kemp are both most likely fake names along with the locations most likely my money was picked up anywhere. But I do feel Hunting bank is more responsible for releasing the funds prior to getting those money orders cleared Even if they went halfway in the losss that would be better than nothing...Western Union should share some of the burden as well by going thirds that would be fair...and the primal evaulation people should go to jail
