Problem # 1 - an outrage in itself, Is the fact that highly ill- motivated special interists - such as many spelled out in Rip-Off Report - Buy Gov- Protection W/ Soft-$ which they contribute to Dem & Rep Parties. Government then turns back and alows corporations such as Travelers Express (money orders) to steel up
to an amount 0f $500 from those who buy there money orders.
Problem # 2 is that if one tries to blow the whistle on the former problem - high tech gov- agents get assigned to your websights. You will find most of them to be among the worst of abusers with badges. They appear to truly believe that no citizen has any rights and they can do whatever they feel like in messing with you and your computer.
problem # 3 is one of the actual corporate/ government con games which has been seperatly spelled out but will be here again.

I have encountered directly a nationwide scandal
involving Travelers Express Inc. of Minneapolis.
They are the nation'slargest 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
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
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
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
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
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 and
believe that will prove a mistakein my case.
