I too have a PO box, but if you run my given name, it shows EVERYTHING....phone number, physical
address... even an arial photo if you so choose.
With all that, I recently got burned for 300. The guys name, and address checked. it was not a pobox, but
a physical address. He got me and another at the same time.
I always felt a person had to show ID to cash a money order, but I suppose if you had someone elses ID
card, you could run a scam like. I just can't figure out how the address is in his name . At this time, the PD
for that area are getting involved, but the time taken out to involve myself could have been used to make sure
I made some really good buys this year on stuff......some expensive. All through email transactions. It really puts
a bad feeling on things once it goes the other direction.
