Karma sucks dude, at least make an effort to locate the owner before you cash it.......

But to get into trouble- I think not b/c you did not alter the name on it at all- so you should be ok.
It's a MONEY ORDER, not a CHECK.

Money orders still go through clearing houses. They can find out who cashed it, but it's harder to find out who bought it.

even if they do file it lost they dont have the recipt, he said its still attached to the check.

so there is no way to prove the origional owner purchased the money order.

If it's a blank money order there's no point in returning it really...might as well cash it

LOL cash it, cuase if you dont then its just money gone to waste.

What's all this talk about karma? Unless you give it back to whoever lost it, they are still out the money whether you cash it or not. Not cashing it doesn't get the person who lost it their money back, right? I'd say, inquire about finding the owner and if you can't, just cash it. No need to feel guilty. I don't know if those things can be traced.

Go to a store and buy something and fill it out to them and it can never be traced to you. Pay a bill with it, or take it to the store and tell them u wanna bring it back you got the wrong amount and they will cash it for you not even asking you for ID.
CASH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If it's from someone in your household, i'd give it back. Or if it belongs to a friend that just recently visited your residence, i'd give it back. Otherwise, it's free money. The person who dropped it should've been more responsible. If the actual owner comes back, i'd most likely give them the money order or the 25 bux. All up to you though.
