Money Order Scam?
August 24, 2010 10:00 AM Subscribe
My coworker received 2 money orders via USPS priority mail today. They were in 2 different amounts, both addressed to him. The address and name on the FROM section of the money order were from a different name and state than the return address on the mail. He did not recognize either name or address. What is going on?

He called the person listed on the return address, and they said that it was a church and that their credit card had been stolen and they were aware of fraudulent charges. The FROM address on the money order is a cable company. What should he do? How would someone make money from this scam?
