  • Money orders are absolutely traceable because payment can be stopped on them. I've done it before. If they get one from the post office I think it even comes with a carbon copy.

    Ask for a cashier's check if you're that worried. And get a PO box if you don't want to give out the address. How much money are we talking about? If it's a negligible amount I'm not even sure I'd go to the trouble.

  • To an extent, yes. Usually it says right on the money order who issued it. The numbers on it tell exactly where it was issued and they can also use that number to narrow down when it was issued. And if you purchase the money order with a check, credit card or debit card, they can easily trace it.

    Did you hire a hit man and are wondering how to pay him so it isn't traced to you? LOL

  • ^^^^ BTW- I thought the 3rd party face palm was appropriate since you are asking for a "friend"

  • Yes, a money order is traceable. In my opinion, anything is traceable if you are willing to dig deeply enough.

  • Cash is pretty much untraceable. Unless it was from a bank heist and the serial numbers are recorded. 


    Why would you want an untraceable payment, though?

  • My advice go to their home and get cash. Insist on a cashier's check. Have them Western Union a payment. It's traceable if you make it that way. It is called Delivery Confirmation at the post office. They can insure it too if they like.
