    This is the second bogus money order I have received and am sitting on numerous emails from others. I am thinking of making it a part time hobby to bust these yahoos! What I dont understand is not only how stupid they think I am but how stupid they must be. I TOLD them to go ahead and send the check/money order because I would be checking its validity as soon as I received it! FYI: they have changed venue, now they are “good samaritians” wishing to give back to society. Check written on Citibank NA One Penns Way, New Castle DE bogus routing number of 015087378 – 0331100209 Happy hunting!
