It’s amazing the lengths that these fake check scammers will go to convince you that their scam is legitimate. This scam was created just two days ago and has a fully functioning website, really legitimate looking forms, and one hell of a convincing story.
It makes you wonder what these scammers could accomplish if they focused their efforts on real work instead of deceiving people.
Advertising in Motion, LLC. is a Scam.

There is NO such thing as a check or payment processor.
Any job that requires you to receive checks or payments will always be 100% a scam. With a check cashing scam, you’re asked to receive a check, deposit it into your bank account, and forward most of the amount overseas while keeping a portion of it for yourself as a “payment.” The checks you receive are either fake or stolen and it’s only a matter of time before they bounce.
Unfortunately, most banks don’t spot the fake checks and will allow you to deposit them. Federal law requires banks to immediately grant you access to the funds even though they haven’t cleared. This allows you to complete your “job” and send the portion required overseas.
The fake check you deposited WILL eventually bounce. It can take weeks, or even months but that check will bounce. Unfortunately for you, you’ve already wired the money overseas and there is no hope of recovering that money. This leaves YOU responsible for repaying the cost of the check.
Follow this one simple rule: NEVER accept a job that requires you to handle someone else’s money. If an “employer” want you to receive a check and forward the money elsewhere, it is 100% guaranteed to be a scam. Every. Single. Time.
Do Not Work for Eva Melkova or Advertising in Motion
I know Advertising in Motion has a legitimate looking website, but rest assured, it’s absolutely a scam and doing work for them will cost you thousands of dollars and can get you in trouble with local law enforcement or even the FBI.
Take a step back and think about this logically for a second. This “company” is trust you, some random individual from the Internet, to receive payments, cash them in your bank account, and wire the money overseas. Nothing about that sounds legitimate. Why would a major international company be outsourcing it’s payment processing to some random person in the middle of the US? That’s not how companies operate.
