    I received the offer through a text and was instructed that I would receive a check for $5100 and I was to pay the graphics person $4100 and I was to keep $1000 but I told him it sounded like a scam to me and I would not be going through with and I never heard back from him.

    I got a check yesterday for a total of $2550.12 and when I texted the number, Mr. Michael Tomaine texted me back to urge me to deposit the check ASAP and let him know when it is done. I texted back that I would not go through with anything until the check cleared. He said that was fine and to deposit the check.

    This morning again he wanted an update and I texted him that I needed the name and number of the company that was to do the wrap on my truck. It took awhile but he did text me the name Dimxol Auto Graphics at (716) 324-2385. I called the number and all it would do was let me leave my name. Soon I got a return call from that number that my caller ID noted was from Buffalo, NY. I live in Colorado! Anyway, the guy that called me back could barely speak English at all and when I asked where he is located, I never could understand what he told me.

    I let Mr. Tomaine know that the more I learned about his operation, the less I trust it and I haven't heard anything back yet from him. I am going to just tear up that bogus check and forget it! BEWARE! DON'T get involved in this scam!

    Good morning ğŸŒž

    I'm recently a victim of this scam, it happened around Thanksgiving time, and I just want to know what I can do to get help from this. His name was Alex Corgon, or at least he goes by that name, I'm guessing that the last name might not be real. The problem with this scam is that the checks are real, the PNC Bank here in Ohio cashed the check because it was real, but then it bounced and me and my family have no Christmas because we owe our bank$1700 in overdraft fees. I just want everyone to know about this scam, and don't let this happen to you,

    This is just another way for the scammers to get info from us. Its really getting ridiculous. I usually dont give any info but they caught me at a weak moment. It makes me so mad that these people dont have anything better to do with their life but to try to get money from people. They probably wouldnt work in a pie factory tasting pies. Im just so sick of it. I knew the internet was gonna cause problems.

    As much as its nice to have for good reasons but its also brought on a bunch of trouble thats just unnecessary. I refuse to change my number and let them win. I hope by giving my address that they cant cause me problems? Does anyone know if it will?

  • September 30, 2019 at 5:09 PM by an anonymous user from: North Olmsted, Ohio, United States

    My husband and I have received many, many fraud checks, money orders, and savings bonds...all asking us to cash, keep some and send the rest.

    Of coarse we do not, but when they call we act stupid and say OHHH MY GOODNESS... You did not receive the money?

    I'm not sure what happened... It is like keeping them on the phone... if we can stall them, then it prevents them from scamming someone else. Gotta give them a taste of their own medicine.

    I was contacted in regard to being paid to placing Budweiser advertising on my car/truck. After several fake Fedex overnight packages addresses to me but, delivered in TN, I did receive a Fedex package that only contained a cashiers check.

    Calling the bank listed on the check they said it was a fake check. I've been conversing with a Tracy Wilson (575) 342-1929, (602) 935-6749, and tracywillson101@gmail.com. She was pushing me to deposit the check, keep a portion for myself and forward the remainder to whoever was to come put the advertising on my truck.

    The "remitter" on the check was a Katherine Bultema who comes up on an internet search as a Keller Williams Real estate broker in NW Indiana.

    The Bank listed on the check was Providence Bank and Trust in South Holland, IL but the label on the Fedex package says it came from a Alex Reyes 591 Lantana St., Apt 177, Camarillo, CA 93010 Tracking No. 789479313680.

    The "details" link on the tracking though shows it originated in Springfield, VA.

    I received this message also, I have it on my phone, his name is Samuel 1-984-208-3192. I didn't give him an account number or anything, other than my address.

  • April 30, 2019 at 11:37 AM by an anonymous user from: Brooksville, Florida, United States

    I received the same offer. I told them no but I did keep the phone number. 848-202-7686, if it helps. Probably not.

  • December 26, 2018 at 8:17 AM by an anonymous user from: Detroit, Michigan, United States

    So, I almost fell for this scam. I have been told today that I will receive the check by Friday. I am going to keep them communicating with me so I can share with my bank.

    If I'm lucky, maybe they will be caught and stopped (prosecuted).

  • November 29, 2018 at 5:14 PM by an anonymous user from: San Jose, California, United States

    Victim here!

    Not being malicious minded and believing in the good of others.

    Living paycheck to paycheck. I was a perfect target.

    Money for Christmas,finally payoff a credit card. I was aware of what advertising costs and it seemed ok.

    The person even spoke to me about being legit.

    Smooth talk.

    I feel so ignorant not mention embarrassed.

    Pls be informed and pay attention."google it" before.

    It cost me $3000 of my hard earned money.

  • September 17, 2018 at 4:40 PM by an anonymous user from: Kansas City, Missouri, United States

    If I just destroy the check is there any liability on my part?

    • September 17, 2018 at 5:44 PM by info

      No, that is the right thing to do.

  • July 26, 2018 at 5:39 PM by an anonymous user from: Phoenix, Arizona, United States

    Yes I got the check but with nothing else in the envelope I thought " what business does this? no other paperwork just a check? I introduced the check to my shredder... take that b**ches!

  • May 30, 2018 at 6:48 PM by an anonymous user from: Salem, Oregon, United States

    This person contacted me and said the check is in the mail, I figured it was too good to be true, yikes

    • July 4, 2018 at 3:32 PM by an anonymous user from: Aurora, Colorado, United States

      They are preying on the teens now. They told my son that he could advertise for Bud Light as long as he was over 18 and had his own checking account.

      Luckily, I am still joint on my son's account and saw that he deposited this check from NY from Sovereign bank, (no address of bank or anything) with a company signature/address out of Washington DC.

      The Fed Ex was mailed from Georgia. This was a HUGE scam and Luckily I stopped it the day my son deposited it.

      The lady was very aggressive with him via text and told him that they saw that their check had already cleared, ( not possible being an out of state check that was deposited 2 hours prior), and she was going to report him to the FBI.

      She truly scared him and he thought he had to get to Walmart asap and wire the 750 bucks that he needed to or he would be arrested.

      So they are having people wire transfer money through Walmart. When my son told her that the FBI would be coming after her for fraudulent check writing she blocked him from her ACCOUNT.

      Unbelievable. My son would have been out $950 because of this ridiculous scam.

      She is on facebook: Tricia Morrison. So tell your teens and tell the elderly that you know, the BUD Light decal is a scam and they are aggressive and will threaten you with the FBI.
