Dr Pepper Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I got a text asking me to do an advertising wrap on my vehicle, paid 500 a week. So that sounds great to make extra money, I filled out basic information they sent me a email asking about my driving record age etc, the line that stood out was do you have a bank account. At this point I did some research, which I should have done prior to the responses to the text, and saw where this was a scam, I emailed the people back and stated they were trying to scam me thinking this would be the end of this. However a few days later I get a check in the mail for 4,900.00 from Park Lake North Owners INC, 30 30 Northern Blvd Suite 400 LI City, NY 11101. With instructions to text Mr Slavin at 305 748 2181 for security purpose with information listed below so that this check can be verified for you to be able to deposit. Name, check amount and number. I have the check and instructions as well as emails from this company. The mailing address on the envelope is RUE GILT GROUPE 20 Channel Street Boston MA 02210. Thank you.

Upfront payment rather large with cashiers check

  • by: AlanPinkerton

  • May 6, 2019
  • Monetary Loss: $3920
I responded to a text message about Apple Juice wanting people to use their car for advertising with them. I reported it to the FBI and was told do not cash the cashier check with remitter Denise Herrera and do not respond back on text message. Further research shows this is a scam based on others because of the large amount involved. Also companies that do background check may not be legit and may be working with this sort of scam.

I have been scammed by Owen.

  • Monetary Loss: $500.00
Owen some how got my phone number and claimed to be from Miller lite and the company is looking for driver's to use their decals on their cars. They would make $500 per week. BUT first, you would have to take your first check and deposit it and give the "decal guys" the money for payment of them putting it on to your car. I'm glad I didn't fall for it, and I feel horrible for all of you who have been scammed. It's hard enough out there in the world and to be scammed by a low life, is not what we need right now.

Scamming by text

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I got a text from a company saying they wanted to put wraps on peoples vehicles so they could get more advertisements out in the public. I sent some info like my name & address. About a week later i received a check for over $2,000.00. The day i received it, i also got a text from this guy named Adam. I lnew it was already a scam because i had went through this the week before with someone else. I never deposit the check but i told him i did so i could see how much money he was going to ask for back. I was right. Anyway i ended up cussing him out & letting him know that i knew i was being scammed. He never messaged back. The first one that tried to scam me threatened me. This is his text to me because i wouldnt answer his calls, "Hello, What is going on there and why do you keep mute since you have cashed the check? You have just few minutes to get back to me now or else ?" I still have the second check & not sure if it would do any good to give to someone with the law or just throw it away.

We follow the instructions for the 2 of the checks one for me and one for my husband at that point I explained to them we only have 1 car but that both of us had apply with the hope of one of us to get to do it. They said it would be fine that I would be sending some cash to set up someone to come decal my car with their logos. And I would get paid $500 a week just to drive around advertising them. They also told me that that if I wanted to make more money there was events we could assist and be certain Amount of time at that event and make more money. Sounded good to me was looking how to make extra income and thought maybe those logos can pay our car insurance and get us extra groceries every week . I call citizen bank cause I wanted to make sure the check was real and the confirm it was so I went and deposited it to my DCU account it gave me $1000 that I could of withdraw but I really want the the full amount to clear to touch any of it. That’s what I told them n it’s what I did. Not knowing that even when it fully clear on my account it’s still not fully cleared. So they said to set up cash app to send cash thru there but I don’t know what happen that they ended up giving a tdbank account number So i took out 5400 deposit in a tdbank account to Bank Name: TD bank

They treated me like I was a criminal. Like i wasn’t a victim.
