Hi there! I'm new so I'm not sure if I'm in the right place, but I received an offer from a company to put a sticker on my vehicle for ad purposes. The money they said they pay is a bit outrageous and I just don't know how to verify it. The offer is apparently separate from the company itself. There's probably a real simple way to do this but I usually miss the simple stuff and go right for the complicated. 😏

I received an offer where a company would pay for another company to put a wrap on my car that featured a particular business. I don't remember exactly how much they promised to pay but it was enough to entice me. I got suspicious when they sent me a check to deposit and then pay the person doing the wrap. I started to google the name and sure enough, found it was a scam.

The one I participated in was a scam. I have the $1650 check in my possession right now. Called the "issuing bank" to verify the check, and it turns out the account number is invalid. Anytime a business says "make this deposit, then call to pay someone else a portion of that..." it is likely a scam. Even in today's internet world, checks still take 3-5 days to process through the Federal Reserve. Then they disappear with your money when the 'issuing bank' rejects the check.
