Easy Money

 

 

If you didn’t see my story on the counterfeit postal money orders popping up in Houston mailboxes click here.  However, after the story aired I realized I left out some helpful information. How exactly can a person tell if something like this is genuine or bogus? Look at the first picture, see the Benjamin Franklin watermark? Yes, ol’ Ben’s face is supposed to be there but you should not be able to see his face while the money order is laying on a table. You should only be able to see Franklin’s face when you hold the money order up to the light. The second tip is the security strip. See how the silvery USPS bars are staggered across the front of the money order? A legitimate postal money order will have a solid security strip, not dashes.
