Beware of "Samsung Paid To Drive Program" Auto Car Wrapping Advertising Scam

The "Samsung Paid To Drive Program" auto car wrap or autowrapping advertising below is a scam. The scam claims that vehicle owners with a driver's license can be paid $500 or more weekly via check (cheque) to have their vehicle wrapped with an advertisement. The scammers behind this fraudulent scheme or scam 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.

    I got a check Monday and they are busting me to cash, not going to do it, if there are any law enforcement agencies that want the check let me know.

    I responded to the scam and a week later received a check for $2450 that I should deposit it into my bank ATM with the instructions to withdraw $1950 to send to a specialist. When I told the person that I have to wait for the check to clear by my bank they were not happy and started cursing me out.

    In fact two days later the bank returned the check as altered or fictitious. The check was drawn on SPC Credit Union out of Virginia.
    I wish there is a way to track the scam bags and put them away forever.
