Scammers are sending out G-Shock car wraps advertising scams to thousands of persons via email messages, Craigslist, and other advertising media. The scams claim that vehicle owners with a driver's license can be paid a certain amount of money weekly via check (cheque) through a courier service to have their vehicle wrapped with a G-Shock advertisement. But, the scammers behind this fraudulent scheme will send you fake checks, ask you to take your 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 this fraudulent scheme. You will then be left to pay back the bank the wired amount and other charges associated with the processing of the check.
Whenever you receive offers that are too good to be true, please do your research before participating, even if the offers seem legitimate.
