As others have said anymore there is no benefit to requiring more than a plain old personal check.

My bank clears most personal checks in 24 hours.

Postal Money Orders are a pain in the ass!!!

I’ve NEVER had a problem with a personal check from ANY 24 Hour Camp 🔥 Member I’ve taken as payment.

I've never had a problem with a USPS money order the only problem I ever had using a Western Union money order that never showed up to the the seller and when I went to see about getting my money back on it or however this goes there was a $15 fee to get my $15 money order straightened out so I just let it go

oh I forgot to say that if the same thing would have happened with a USPS money order and I went down to try to get my money refunded back to me on the USPS money order I would probably have to pay a fee there too

UTTERING & PUBLISHING is the felony charge; when one sends a forged USPS money order, the felony is compounded by the US statues that apply to using the US Mail, and that that the check is a federal check. So contact the US Postal Inspector 's office with as much info you retained about the sale. The crook is looking at federal prosecution, legal defense fees, federal fines, court costs, and federal time (3 hots & a cot).

I just checked a MO online with USPS, easy. Anyone who has never had a problem with a personal check, on this forum or anywhere else, is a lucky duck and should have bought lottery tickets.

Thanks for making this a sticky. We have a P.O. right here in town, easy to get to, never had a problem with a USPS, but didn't know about this phone #.
