Fraudulent Money Order that we received.
We added the "void" to deter the image from being used further.
Recently, we had 2 attempts to use a $900 Western Union Money Order via the mail and the phone. Thankfully, our sales representative felt uneasy upon receiving the first mail order and called Western Union to verify the amount. She found out that the amount was actually for only $9.00 but had been changed on the money order that we received to $900.00. As you can see above, it looks legitimate. We had a second attempt via a phone order. Apparently, this fraudulent behavior occurs all of the time. But since it happened to us, we felt like it was important to mention it to the beading blog-o-sphere. Had Shelley not followed her instincts, we might have been out a good sized chunk of money. We'd hate to see this happen to other companies in our industry. If they targeted us, they might target you too. Beware!
