I picked up a $49.00 money order from my bank to send to someone online for a purchase. It's only been a week but I feel reasonably sure they should have received the letter. Sent two emails which have gone unanswered. The seller had excellent feedback so I am pretty sure I have not been swindled but I would like to see if the money order has been deposited/cashed/etc..
My bank is closed for the day and I will call tomorrow but I wanted to see if anyone else knows of a way to track this?

tia.

send it via usps next time, then get a confirmation # on it. as for this one, i dunno, you might be dealing with a troll here.

The bank will be able to tell you if it's been cashed but the easiest way to track it would have been to track the envelope with the post office.

Yeah I should've got confirmation but was in a hurry and just dropped it in the box. Lesson learned. I sent it last friday and it was going to NY so it may take this long (wasn't there a bad snowstorm?).
ASnyway I will call the bank tomorrow and see if they can help.
Only bad thing is that he hasn't replied to my 2 emails. I just send him a private message hoping that will get a response. Even a "money order hasn't arrived" is better than silence.

thanks all.

I'd get his phone number and give him a call, that usually provides better results.
