Following this, I got a USPS Priority Mail Envelope from Alex Optical, Inc., 4528 E. Thomas Road, Phoenix, AZ 85018, with a letter of instructions and a postal money order for $995.

They told me I was checking on the service of a Western Union location.

I took the $995 money order to my bank, placed the $200 they told me to take into my savings account, and send the remaining money to a Rigeud Antoine, 29 Rue Berne, Port-a-Prince, Haiti to assist the earthquake victims.

I took the money and made a next-day transfer for almost that amount. I had second thoughts when I got home, so I went online and started looking around and came across your site. I contacted Western Union to cancel my transaction and get a refund as well as contacted my credit union to let them know the money order may be fraudulent. As of now, there is not loss to me. I just wanted to report this in case someone else gets the same kind of letter/email.
