Wow what a stressful weekend & all over a money order ..............
Thursday evening Paul went to the bank to get our money order for the rent. They don't take checks at the office since to many were bad so everyone has to do it this way. We have never had any problems until Friday. Friday after lunch I went and paid the rent. I was in a rush & so was the landlord so we didn't chat to long.
Later that afternoon I got a phone call from Paul telling me the landlord had called him a work & told him her bank bag had got stolen from her truck. I called the bank to find out how to stop the payment of the money order. I found out so Paul said he would stop by on his way home. It turned out the bank said it was up to the landlord to do it since she was the person who had it. paul got the number for her to call & talked to her about it. So the weekend passed & this morning I asked if she had called. She didn't really say but I didn't think she had. It wasn't just our money order it was another couple just moving in & another man. She had altogether almost five thousand dollars. Here she never even called the police either. I came home & did a little bit on the computer & called the bank. So later today after Paul got off of work we spent almost two hrs at the bank.
I'm happy after taking the time to check on it all we are safe. We have a new money order , got charged a fee for stopping the payment which the landlord told us we would be refunded for. I'm so thankful God was watching over it all. No one cashed the money order or if they had the bank could not have helped us. It's so much harder to stop a money order than a check. Paul & I also can't believe that she never called the cops at all.
So very thankful once again for God watching over the whole Messy Money Order Deal.
