      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.
