    they sent me a text funny thing I just sign up with Indeed jobs. That y I didn't think of anything at first The part that made me look at him twice was a cooperation like Budweiser not going to do business with anyone plus deal with any type of money gram crap! I wouldn't do business with him or submit personal in that form.

    They used different names and only to text them with the number they sent. No emails and only text messages information I do have the person name and address to put on money gram. also after reviewing there is an email address. BUDWEISER I HOPE U GO AFTER THE SC*M BAGS for using household names that people would think to look what they do at invents and communities we live in so it not that far fetched of an idea. Am a P*SSED of Bud supporter.

    HI I just received a check for $2000.00 which I will get 400.00 and the rest will go to the person that will install and remove the decals.

    I did not deposit the check but I went to the bank to ask questions. I was told that is a scam I had a feeling because the person that hired me never call me only text me. The contract was online which was an agreement but still I never sign any documents.

    And I did respond back to the jerk he will get busted. Please always Google the email address or number before even talking to someone and always Google the company they say they are and seeing if its true too. Google is amazing to look stuff up. The number was also on Facebook as a record promote market too.

    Wow, yah Nellson Smith, the same person here. Received a cashiers check in the mail, via USPS earlier this week. Amount of $1950, for the Budweiser decal promo. Decal advertising. Going to my bank, inside that is, and have them look into it, and Thereof I whether or not the cashier's check is valid. Took pictures of front and back.

    Fell for the scam. Got the check and cashed it. The guy's name is Mr. Thompson in Texas. He asked to send the money to Baltimore Maryland which was kinda fishy and all cause I live in California. Here is the information:

    "Good morning, how was your night? we received a notification from the Specialist that they could not Pick the Payment, I will like you to re pick the funds from Western Union and resend it to the Specialist Details given below through Walmart or Money Gram :

    Name: Olajide Idowu
    City: Baltimore
    State: Maryland
    Zipcode: 21207

    I will need you to get back to me with the Payment Receipt after it the Payment has been Completed Thanks."

    I told Mr. Thompson that I was not going to send him the money and he continues to call me. I have both cell numbers.

    1-469-416-3424
    1-713-581-9069

    Both numbers work. How can we find these guys? I'm scared that they are going to try to do something. I returned the money back to the bank.

    I have been receiving threating text messages from these jokers for days. Once I told them to stop or I would report them and they tried to threaten me with the FBI.

    I told them to go ahead and that they would be the ones in some serious trouble since I did not do anything wrong. They are continually trying to get me to cash a check and give it to someone else.

    Are they crazy or what? Why would you send someone a check for their share and to pay for the wrap when all you have to do is send them their share and pay the wrap company themselves. Makes no sense to me.

    Yes...VERY shady! My husband and I both received checks in the mail...sent via USPS Priority Mail in fact.

    The checks are both for an amount of $1,950.89. The guy - the e-mail I received came from a jack philip - and his text message number of (925) 352-4461. The address on the check is a HOME in Sacramento, CA, but the check address says:

    Chicago Title Company
    8709 pennyfoot court
    Sacramento,CA 96828.

    The bank says it is from Wells Fargo Bank, with an address of

    420,Montgomery
    san Francisco, Ca,94104

    (all incorrect capitalization and punctuation is not an error on my part...that is how it came in on the checks).

    I e-mailed jack philip and asked him what I need to do. He told me to deposit the check. When it clears, I needed to take $700 for myself. Then, once the check cleared, I would need to go to Walmart to wire transfer the money to an "expert" who is going to "install" the "emblem" on our vehicles.

    I asked him if there was any paperwork I needed to sign, any sort of agreement. He said the "expert" would have all of the paperwork for me to sign.

    I called him out on the address on the check...he admitted it is his house. His English is broken...definitely not his first language.

    I will be tearing the checks up and trashing them.

    This is what I have had sent to me and I have been informed that there scams going on the good part is I live in a gated community and it’s not easy to get in. Here are the texts:

    "Hello Alden, this is Mr Mamie from the Paid To Drive Initiative By Budweiser that you applied for. How are you doing today and can you read me? Okay we got your information and how long do you intend to carry the advert on your car 1 month or 2 months and also do you use your car everyday?Okay the program is only available for 2 months Okay good. Is the car neatly kept and is it in a perfect working condition? And I want you to send the picture of the car for verification? Okay got it and I am happy to inform you that you are qualified to carry the Advert on your car. Your first week payment of $500 will be sent to you and it will include the specialists' funds (those that will be coming to place the Advert on your car) After you receive the check and have it deposited and after it clears, you will deduct your first week payment of $500 and the rest will be sent to the specialists coming to place the decal on your car.Do you understand? Alright and thanks for willing to participate in the program and the check will be issued out to you tomorrow morning and deliver to you next-day and look out for the tracking #"

    I am waiting for it too come so I can get the police ready to grab them. I plan calling the bank on the check to find out if it is a good check. Then if it is good go cash it at the bank that the check is written from If it’s not good take to police and let them see it and ask how they want to deal with it. I think I should tell Budweiser if it’s a scam and they might want to stop it too.

    I think they want me to deposit the check that is probably fake and then swing by to pretend they’re going to put the decals on and try to get money from me and that’s when we need to arrest them.

    I received a check for $2950 today w/ instructions to go to nearest ATM machine to have the check deposited & designated for 24hr deposit. Then they want me to send them a snapshot of deposit receipt then text their hiring manager so they can let their financial institution know to expedite the release of cash the next business day to me.

    I'm very skeptical but I contacted the huntington national bank and they verify that there is enough $ to cover the check.

    I am so angry! I actually deposited my check for almost $3,000 this morning, before realizing that it was a scam check. It is totally hard to tell because it came in a priority mail envelope - a legitimate envelope Dash and we even looked up the routing number and Credit Union information and it was all correct.

    The thing is I had received this email and sent my information but after that I realized it was a scam and did not proceed further. This was a while back. So when I received this check in the mail I did not connect it to. It was the name Ed Edwards on the bottom of the check just so you know. I've called my bank I'm freaking out. Now I don't know what to do emotionally they have totally toyed with me and my husband I am very angry.

    almost made this a horrible mistake. I thought maybe this was real...got the check today and almost deposited...once I told the text messages I was going to return the check which I wrote void all over it they stopped texting me...I could have really used the money and glad I did a little more research....the checks come in an odd amount also.
