    Last week I posted a thread saying I had ordered an "Item" well I am not happy with what's going on. I sent them a USPS money order ad they deposited the thing in the bank Monday March 15. and the cat e mailed me this "The bank advises us that money orders are treated exactly the same as personal checks; they are not considered fully cleared until at least three weeks have gone by after the date of deposit. The policy of ********* has been that checks and money orders are deposited upon receipt, but the orders are not submitted to ***** until three weeks have elapsed to ensure that the checks or money orders have fully cleared." That don't sound right to me because it was a freakin USPS money order. What say you:headscratch:

    Sorry to hear that, but I think many companies do this. There is much fraud out there.

    That sucks. Did they state that policy before you ordered? If not, I'd tell them to either ship it or cancel the order and do business elsewhere.

    You can thank the asshats who steal money orders or counterfeit them for this policy.

    +1 I have had this happen to me as well... Can't remember what outfit it was from but I do remember being pissed off about it... Like the man said though, there's so much fraud out there that companies have to protect themselves...

    Yeah, I don't think there is much you can do there, brother. Money order fraud is a pretty big deal and they are trying to CTA.

    The internet has seen a huge rise in money-order based scams.


    You're suffering the fallout of that.

    Life sucks. You die. The end.

    That sux Okie! I'm sorry they're holding you up like that. Like others have said, you can thank thieves and counterfeiters for your wait.

    They knew you would not order it through them if they told you.

    But look at it this way, you will forget you even ordered it and a great present will show up in a few weeks. I forget the stuff I order all them time. It's like Christmas in April!:supergrin:

    I was burned twice on rent with USPO MO and after talking to the Inspector at the PO I won't allow any of my managers to accept them now.
