  • Thank you so much for posting this. I received FedEx package with letter and USPS money order for $870 from Dennis Matheny couple of days ago. You saved me asking me to cash and western union $700 to Mark Phillips. Thank you.

  • My story is exactly the same! I just received a letter from RTi Customer Research Inc. as well. I use to work for Wachovia Bank. We were trained on fraudulent activity such as this. One thing that I noticed to look for is the validity of the letter. Mine looked like it was photocopied from a home scanner. You can tell by noticing that the margins in a letter only has so much room and information(words) will cut off if it is beyond its limit. Its funny because the people part of this scam are also lazy! Another thing is to know what is money laundering. When someone is asking you to accept money, deposit it into your account and transfer it to someone else, it is considered money laundering and that is what they are exactly asking you to do. If you think about it, why dont they send the money directly themselves? Instead of having it done through you? The purpose is to hide where money is originally traced when you are sending it illegally. In this case, they are stealing from you because you are depositing a fake check and sending them your $. Also, if you notice the "Money Order" sent to you, look at characteristics of the check. Any form of money, whether cash or a type of check that is real is made out of a type of clothing like material. You should see detail in cloth-like threading like how its seen on a dollar bill. Also, all types of money or money order are intelligently created with anti-conterfited security features, like a water mark and again a security thread. You can easily see them under lighting if you hold it up. The "money order" that I got doesnt even have a watermark or security thread. The coloring is also off, which its usually brighter and smoother. I always buy USPS money orders, so I know exactly how they feel against my finger tips; smooth. The one I got feels like paper but it looks real. DONT BE FOOLED! Always google search when you are unsure. The internet has unlimited access of information. Ive seen old people get scammed at the bank.
