This is an important lesson. MOs, particularly non-bank MOs, are treated with suspicion by banks. No legitimate business in scale is conducted with these instruments. I'd far prefer to deposit $4,000 in cash than $4,000 in random money orders between $500 and $1,000 each.

Could you elaborate on how much (amount, quantity per deposit, frequency of deposits) you were doing?
