If it was a postal money order, you can run a trace on it, for
approx. $3.00. (to see if she has cashed it) After the USPS
completes a payment inquiry on the status of the money order,
a replacement can be issued, if it has not been cashed.
But, it has more than likely been cashed. In which case, you
will receive a copy of the cashed money order, with her
signature on back.
You could file a complaint with the attorney General's office
in your state (and hers). Free to do online.
They will contact her, regarding your complaint, to try to
resolve the issue.
Make sure you save all the emails she sent you !!
