Scam Alert: Offer to put Ads on Your Car for Money – say IN. State Police
This is where someone is offering you money to advertise their services by “wrapping” your vehicle with their logo/brand. After responding to their offer they inform you they will send you a check (usually a large sum) then for you to go and get money orders for a certain amount, send that back to them, and you can keep the rest.
THIS IS A SCAM!!
How this scam works is you deposit the check and send the designated amount to the scammer. Later, the original check sent to you by the scammers’ bounces, leaving you liable for the ENTIRE amount.
If this was legitimate they wouldn’t ask you to deposit a check and wire money back.
Please be wary of these offers/advertisements, the old adage still rings true, IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT USUALLY IS!!
Press release from Indiana State Police.
