Shopper's Voice Consumer Research CentreFraudulant Cashiers Checks


Dated: Sept. 30th, 2009
By Pamela Allen in Hardwick, Vermont
Here is a copy of the letter my husband received and there were also 2 Cashiers Checks included. The Cashiers Checks were from Citibank and I had contacted Vermont's Attorney Generals Office - Consumer Protection, and was told that as long as my bank checks it over and don't find anything suspious about it, then it should be a legitament claim. So I then took it to my bank, which is, Merchants Bank, and I had the president of the branch look it over and was told that there was nothing suspious about it and then proceeded to deposit into my checking account and told me that I could have $100 of it immediately and the rest 24 hours later. In which I thought that it would be cleared by then. So the next day I contacted Delve Legal Services as directed in the letter to find out how to obtain the affidavit needed for the other Cashiers Check. I was told that I needed to Western Union $850.00 to a Brian King of Toronto Ontario, Canada for 1 of the affidavits. Then I needed to also send another Western Union in the amount of $630.00 to a Geoff Saratoga also of Toronto Ontario, Canda for the other affidavit. Well I did it due to the fact that at that period of time my husband was away and I was trying to raise 2 kids by myself and was and still is unemployeed. A few days later I went back to my bank and deposited the other check and was told the same thing about this one as with the first one. The other check still had not come back, so I was still under the impression that this was legitimate too. Unfortunetly, I am now in debt to the bank of about $17, 550.00 with no way to pay it back and my situtation has not changed. As of the other day I was sent a letter from my bank telling me I had 10 days to remitt that amount and that our account has been closed and if we still didn't pay we can be subjected to futher charges. Nice isn't it! I have choose to share my story so that I hope it can prevent this from happening to anyone else. If at any point anyone might have any helpful suggestions as to where I can get some kind of justice in all of this please feel free to contact me at pamela.[protected] or write me at Pamela Allen P.O. Box 201 Hardwick, VT 05843.
Thank you,
Pamela Allen
