I submitted to the Postal Service a form to trace eight money orders to prove payment in a housing court case. Six of the money orders were replaced and deemed not cashed by the postal service. After I paid all monies owed via a court stipulation-four of the money orders were cashed. I have contacted the postal service because I believe (and othets should complained also) that once a so call trace is submitted for verification then if the original money order is cashed by the intended party then the postal service should go after the whoever cashed the original money order not the person who submitted the trace.
Be aware that if you submit a form to trace a monney order-the post office has written in fine print that you agree to pay if the original money order is cashed. This policy must changed. I am currently in contact with the money order division to register my strong protest and intend to proceed further.
I appreciate any information, similar experiences or anyone interested in organizing a mass protest to the postal system regarding this policy.
