      Good catch Nancy. Unfortunately, there’s not much the police can do, but having a report on file is still good to have.

    I received an offer from Busch beer for a car wrap. I am older looking for an income boost. I was on my way to $400. a week and caught myself. Decided to check and see if there were this type of scams out there? Thank you! I immediately cancelled and every text he sent me disappeared. Glad to be rid of him! As a senior citizen I get at least one new scam a day! I have been waiting for the law to pick me up for weeks because of a fine I owe! No show! It worries me about the people that get their life savings taken because of the crooks out there!

    I received something very similar to this and was very close to participating. I was a bit skeptical but left the email in my inbox for a few weeks. Somehow the conversation popped up about it with my mom and I told her about the deal and she was telling me I should take it! I was really surprised because she’s usually very skeptical to all things like this. She told my dad and he was all for it as well. They both said $300 just for driving around was a great deal. My mom made me forward her the email so she could apply as well. Then she told her friends about it and they also loved the idea and wanted to apply. I’m so glad I came across this post because otherwise we could have all been in big trouble. Here’s the emails I received! (They first sent me something about a driving while advertising open positions and I replied that I was interested)

    Dear Andell,

    How are you doing today?It is important we get started so that you can get your car wrapped and begin participation.The least you can participate is 2 Months and as I informed you earlier, you will be compensated $250 as well as $50 for gas each week but for the first week, the payment will be coming with your weekly pay as well as additional funds to pay the Specialist who is coming to place the wrap on your car so all you are to do when you receive the payment is to get it deposited into your account so that funds can be released to you and when they are you let me know so I can inform the Specialist to meet with you.Placing the wrap on your car should not take more than 30 minutes.All you are to do is to meet him with your car. I shall provide him with your cell number so you can both be in touch and fix where and when to meet.Before the wrap is placed on your car, you are to sign a document he would be bringing so you are to read carefully before appending your signature and ensure to get a copy from him for your records in case of any damage.

    Less I forget,You are to pay the specialist with the rest of the additional funds after you have deducted your weekly pay ,Though work as been quite hectic as we are looking to take the campaign to all states,I shall contact you as soon as am less busy to attend to any questions you might have and also to discuss at length.I hope your provided cell number is still available?

I took one to the bank and they told me it was fraudulent and kept that one. Then a few days later I received the second one. What do I do now?

      You don’t really have to do anything. Depending on how much information you’ve given the scammers, you can consider identity theft protection or even a credit freeze. But if all they know is your name and address, you can just ignore them and block all contact with them.

    I was sent a bogus check from a Jared Rivers today. His new scam involves purchasing your car at full price plus monies to hold the car for “the moving company”. The check was a company check from Barker and Castro, LLC out of Chicago. I took the check to the issuing bank and they verified it was bogus and not a real check. Prevented some pain and suffering. Anything from Jared Rivers is air and a scam.

      Best to be proactive and tell the bank the check you deposited is fake.

      It’s possible that the check will actually clear or the funds made available to you, but that money WILL 100% eventually be caught as fraudulent and be removed from your account. DO NOT send any money to anyone and do not spend it!

      There isn’t really much we can do unfortunately. These criminals are operating overseas somewhere and it’s impossible to trace them. This is not advised, but at best, you can waste their time or ask them to send more checks by saying you never received them.

      Your best course of action is to forget this ever happened, rip up the fake check, ignore the scammer, and move on.

    It’s crazy how many scams are going around. Glad I’m not as easily convinced cause I knew it was all a bunch of b.s… I received a text, replied, and then received this email.

    Hello, This is to inform you that you have been successfully entered
    into the Advert of AMP ENERGY DRINK program.

    The Advertisement period for now is six months and You will therefore
    receive your payment alongside the money that will be paid to the
    national car Detailer (expert) in the mail. A check of $3,520 would be
    mailed to you to cover your 1st week rental payment paycheck and for
    the Vinyl decals designer’s expenses for affixing the decals on your
    vehicle and also for its removal cost at the expiration of the advert
    program. So, when you receive the payment, you will take out your
    first week pay of $500 and the rest of the funds should be forwarded
    to the decals expert that will put the decal on your vehicle.

    In view of this, please confirm the following details:

    (1) How long do you intend to carry the advertisement on your car? One
    (1) month, two (2) months or three (3) months?
    (2) Do you use your car everyday?
    (3) Re-confirm your Name and Address as it should be on the check, so
    the payment won’t delivered to wrong address…?
    (4) Did you have bank account to deposit the check ? We are not asking
    for your account details

    Same here, filled out the G-shot energy drink logo email that I received concerning getting paid for a vehicle wrap for their advertisement. About a week later, I received a priority mail express envelope with a check for $3600. Instructions told me to text Mr. William before depositing check to verify it for deposit. The number given to text was (435)677-6227. Mr. William instructed me to deposit the check online banking or through ATM and keep my $500 fee and to wire through the postal service the $3100. I smelled scam, so I told him I would send the check back and he stopped texting me.

This is actually sad – most companies would ask for more info on you or your car. I asked in email how checks are issued and what day – the VERY next morning was a check for $2848.00. Wow ! I never signed up for anything. At least your checks LOOK real !! Mine had no names / numbers or adressess on it. I took it to the bank and asked to call BB&T and my teller told me no need – its an absolute fake. When i txted Robert to tell him it was rejected – he immediately asked me for a credit card #. Sry but i just took check to local police department and reported all the names and addresses to the FTC and FBI. So i dont know what comes next ! But at least im not oitta my mind !

I google the sender address, in Biloxy MS and it was a property that’s on the market for sale. I called First Security Bank, gave them the info on the check… fake and scam. The bank was in Arkansas, the sender Robert Moore somewhere else, the “ remitter” of the check, Stephen Pedro.

    to me

    Dear Applicant,

    Thank you for your interest in working with us. Please read instructions Carefully
    G-SHOT ENERGY DRINK CAR Wrap advertising is the marketing practice of completely or partially covering (wrapping) a vehicle in an advertisement or livery, thus turning it into a mobile billboard. This can be achieved by simply painting the vehicle surface, but it is becoming more common today to use large vinyl sheets as decals. These can be removed with relative ease, making it much less expensive to change from one advertisement to another. Vehicles with large, flat surfaces, such as buses and light-rail carriages, are fairly easy to work with, though smaller cars with curved surfaces can also be wrapped in this manner. Wrap advertising is available to anybody irrespective of the vehicle you drive.

    We are currently seeking to employ individuals in the United States of America. How would you like to make money by simply driving your car or banner wrapped for G-SHOT Energy Drink®

    How it works?
    Here’s the basic premise of the “paid to drive” concept: G-SHOT Energy Drink® seek residents in the United States who are professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for “G-SHOT Energy Drink®” plastered on your car. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as “auto wraps,”that almost seem to be painted on the vehicle, and which will cover any portion of your car’s exterior surface.

    Don’t Have a Car?
    If you don’t have a car, you can also participate if you have a bike.

    What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy?
    Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colorful, eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it’s a form of advertising with a captive audience,meaning people who are stuck in traffic can’t avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. This program will last for 3 months and the minimum you can participate is a month.

    What is the Contract Duration?
    Once the wrap has been installed, minimum term is 4 weeks and maximum is 12 weeks.

    Would the wrap/decal damage the paint of my car?
    The decal doesn’t damage the paint of car and will be removed by our representative once the contract expire. We will be responsible for installation and removal of the wrap.

    You will be compensated with $500.00 per week which is essentially a “rental”payment for letting our company use the space and no fee is required from you. G-SHOT Energy Drink® shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an upfront payment of $500.00 in form of a check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car.

    It is very easy and simple no application fees required.Kindly confirm the following details below if you are interested in this offer.

    We shall be contacting you as soon as we receive this information.
