    They sent me a check and said to deposit and sent balance to the install team. The check was from a cab company. But we are a cab company so that doesn't make since. You can wrap your own vehicle then! Anyways if they send your money and ask you to deposit it's not real!

    A cashiers check lists only the bank it was issued from, the payee is typed in at the back and it has an embossed amount on it. The sender will not be at the top of the check, more like it will be listed in the Memo, For line.

    These check are not an official bank check. I have over 20 years as a bank teller and I know bogus checks when I see them.

    There is another scam for Samsung but no particular product stating that you will get $500 biweekly, and they send you a "official" check for $1950. You supposedly get to keep $500 and you send the rest back via a Money Gram to some other person. They also tell you that you many only have to wait 24-48 hours before the funds are available. Once the funds are available you send back $1450 for the wrap tech and pay a #50 fee for the Money Gram and you get #500 to keep in good faith. First if you do the math it doesn't add up, you are out #50 bucks for the Money Gram, and then when the check gets returned you will be out the total of $1950 plus the $50 for the Money Gram and have no way to collect the funds back and Samsung will tell you that they do not have a program for car wraps program for the general public to sign up for.

    If you do decide to go through this I would suggest to wait at least 2 weeks before you send them there money for the technician to make sure the check is really legit. Currently the phone number that is with this deal is 770.863.0877 and it is from the Atlanta area, but this guy is claiming he is from Carrollton Texas and the Money goes to someone in Houston.

    He/She is also claiming that the check is an "official" check and the bank should give me immediate credit for it.

      It is a scam. Do not cash the check because it is a fake. You may get arrested and will have pay back the money that you would have sent to the scammers.

    I received an email with a Survey Monkey Survey asking the same questions. I guess they discovered a new way to get people interested, they got me interested. Luckily, my coworkers reminded me to start fact checking before I did anything and discovered this and other sites.

    My suspicion was aroused when the confirmation email came from a Gmail address and not from a company. Beware.

    My son also received a $1900 check that had nothing in the envelope but the check and nothing attached as an explanation to it. I've researched and found this website and questioned its authenticity as to why a check would be sent with no occupanying documentation. The check will be returned to sender and not cashed!

Then I received a text from someone named Roger that was said to live in Alabama ,he was supposed to get the money sent to him to install the rap on my car ...but he is in Alabama and I am in Michigan. Even though it was a cashiers check it still did not cash it.

    I answered an ad for the Samsung Galaxy 6 car wrap. Payment of $400.00 a week and an amount to be sent to the person who will be doing the wrap after I cashed the check. I put the check in the bank, but told my bank I wanted to check on it first, so I din't withdrawal the money.

    That was just today, so nothing has happened yet. It was posted on Facebook by a Joanna Marie Brown joannabrowm@gmail.com & when I didn't get her email at first she sent me this e-mail marissa7g5@gmail.com. Also got a phone number of (317) 268-8323.

    Was supposed to send remaining balance to Danny Lewis 101 NW 27th St. Bethany OK 73008. My bank is checking into it, but I wanted to also report it to you so that if it is a scam you can report it to the proper channels.

      FYI.. Someone answered our craigslist ad where we were selling our fridge. He said his name is Sgt. Hall in the military out in CA. We have been playing along while they sent us a $1,900 check for our $500 fridge.

      We are supposed to wire the extra money back. We won't be doing that because they cancel the check that is sent as soon as you show proof of sending them the MoneyGram. They called this morning at 5 am and sounded like they were African. They want the money sent to the same Danny Lewis with same address. FBI has been notified. Funniest part of it is that we gave him the name Hugh Jassole, so we now have a "check" with that name on it.
