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.

Recieved a text offering a opputunity to advertise for ORAL B . I accepted and they sent me a check for $1200.00. I checked with the Georgia's Own Credit Union and they verified it was a bad check
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.
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.
