|Any of you who purchase money orders through the Post Office also ought to be aware that an "8105-A" form (requiring your date of birth, your
occupation, and a driver?s license or other government-issued ID) is required for any purchase of $3,000 or more. If, after being asked to fill out an
8105-A, you cancel or request a smaller amount, that?s an automatic trigger for the clerk to file an "8105-B," the "suspicious-activity" report.
