The scammers behind the fraudulent scheme will send fake checks to their potential victims, ask them to take their share of the money and wire the rest to a graphic designer. But, the checks are fakes and will bounce. The wired money will actually go to the scammers behind the fraudulent scheme.

The victims will then be left to pay back the bank the wired amount and other charges associated with the processing of the check.

    Please see the email below. They originally posted a notification on Facebook, I replied, and was sent the email. As soon as I read the process for handling the "payment", I knew it was a scam. Of course, I thought it was suspicious in the first place!

    They also sent a text from phone number 406.290.0471

    "Dear,

    The Advertisement period for now is 3 months. If there's any course for extension, you would be notified. At the end of the program the advert decal would be removed at the company's expense and the cost of its removal will be included on the 1st week rental payment paycheck that would be mailed to you. Subsequent Rental Payment would be mailed to you on weekly basis. I am a freelance advertiser for PepsiCo based on contractual agreement."

    I seen a ad on Facebook about Pepsi mobile vehicle wraps freelance. So I reply to the email and gave the information they needed; and they sent me a check out for 1950 dollars so I deposit it into my check account. But I didn't know it was a scam until I look it up on the internet today at work. What should I do because I don't want to get in trouble for something I didn't do. Please help me.

      Please report it to your bank and the police. It is best to report it to them first, instead of waiting on them to find out. They will understand, because the scam very popular.
