~Debi: Chat agent was unable to assist with status of a money order - NOT LOST, just needed to know whether it was cashed, when, and by whom. After numerous exchanges and me providing all pertinent information, he told me he could only check the status of a money "transfer", not a money order. Suggested I call customer service: *-***-***-****.
