Reading another post it seems like a lot of folks have gotten burned on fake money orders and didn't know about this automated verification system. It works great, takes just a minute or two, and is probably the best way to double check against a fake mo.

The number is 1-866-459-7822, its all automated. Just type in a few key numbers off the m.o. and it verifies if it is a good one or not. Below is the USPS website that has some good info on their mo's and mentions the number.

Hope this helps somebody.

Thank you sir.


24HCF in its entirety, is solely responsible for why my children do not have college funds, my mortgage isn't paid-off and why I will never retire early enough to enjoy the remainder of my life.

I refuse to accept or send postal money orders. You haven't been jerked around until the post office loses one; or it fails to show up.

If the USPS cashes them, it's validity is no longer your problem. Just throwing that out there...
