    I received the proposal from a text message under the name Ross Hamilton phone number is 410-100-003.
    Although it wasn’t a full phone number which is suspicious on its own I googled as well & found this warning I agree that if something sounds off it probably is!!

    It's the old adage, if it sounds too good to be true, then it isn't. I was falling for the scam until I googled it. Will receive the check, post a picture of it on Facebook, and tell others to beware.

    I am glad I look this kind of stuff up because they targeted my 16 year old today. sent it to him and thank God I check the mail everyday and not him. he would have just seen the check and not thought nothing about it. this is sad individuals doing this and this is why driving licenses and other personal information should not be public and there shouldn't be no mail list connected with certain information.

    sincerely,
    I protective parent!

So we are currently working with them on sending out the fund to you to get the advert placed on your vehicle, note that the Check payment will be sent to you to cover your first week salary of $500 and also the Specialist fund will be included, you will have it deposit and when the Check clears which will be in a day or two, you are to deduct your $500 and the rest will be going to the Specialist that will be responsible for the Advert placement on your vehicle, we will also send you the information to send it to and Instruction with details that will guide you on the proceeding for the decal to be placed as soon as the upfront payment has been delivered to you. Hope to hear back from you soon and thanks for your understanding!.

    BUT! LET ME KNOW IF WE CAN trust you with the Technical funds.
