Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?


I have encountered directly a nationwide scandal

involving Travelers Express Inc. of Minneapolis.

They are the world's largest seller of money orders

and they have worked out at least on curious scheme

for ripping-off their customers for up to $500 each

occasion. This one happens when you need to place a

stop pay on a lost or stolen m/o. The company will

instruct you to rush request w additional fee. They

will next tell you that in your case they did not

initiate a stop-pay.

(They are Lying to you about that, They did

immediately order a stop).

Next they will tell you that someone has

cashed your money order and that they have payed it.

(FACT: SOMEONE HAS UNDOUBTABLY ATTEMPTED TO CASH YOUR

MONEY ORDER BUT THE FOLKS AT TRAVELERS EXPRESS HAVE

THEIR OWN PLANS FOR WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR MONEY AND IT

WON'T INVOLVE PAYING IT TO ANY THIEFS OTHER THAN THEM

SELVES

This company will next provide you with a

"Photocopy" of the m/o. (of all things) and They will

try to make you believe that this is the manner in

which giant financial cporation keeps records of money

that they pay out.

The photocopy will of course prove untraceable(since

no one has been payed anything) and the very poor

quality of the copy and your police detective will

find the money order to be useless. It should be noted

that any compitent detective should recognize the scheme at

that point but, for some reason, they don't. I don't

believe it was total incompitance and I still don't

want to believe that they are in for a piece of the

action.

The folks at Travelers Express will attempt to

convince you that you have been riped off by some

clever thief who somehow managed to leave no traceable

evidence. They co9ntinue to want you to believe that

they never heard of computerized records or of

electronic transfer of funds (just poor quality

"Photocopies").

Whether you buy any of this or not, the nice folks

at Travelers Express will, at this point, put your

money in their own pockets. The money orders are sold

in amounts up to $500 and And they charge you a small

additional fee for the stop pay that they tell you

didn't happen. they recently got me for almost that

full amount

I understand that many, many hundreds of complaints

similar to my own have been filed, primarily with the

Better Business Bureau and The Federal Trade

Commission. These agencies, for their own reasons,

will pretend ignorance of any problem with this

company and will therefore do nothing,

they choose to treat each new complaint as though it

was the very first they have heard of. It clearly

appears that this corrupt corporation and all of the

government officials that play along with them for a

cut of the pie, they all believe that each of their

victims will, at some point, give up in in some

pervasive feeling of hopelessness. I stillhope that will

prove a real mistake in my case.
