    I got the same email too a week ago, I honestly thought they were legit and was already feeling happy with the extra pay coming in.. oh my God, what has this world turned to? The Same Wilson Decker sent me a letter with Acoster Letterhead that I was approved. What do they stand to gain getting us involved in this?

      They want you to cash the fake check they will send to you. They will then ask you to take your amount and send them the rest.

      But, the check will bounce, which you will have to end up paying for, plus the fees to process the fake check.

    I received a text message offering me $500 a week to have my car wrapped with a Colgate advertisement. At first I did not know of the scam but did in turn learn of it being a scam after I agreed to do it. I decided to play along and turn them in when I get this $4500 “check” that I am still waiting for coming in the mail.

    You know I was so excited because I thought I was going to have all this extra money. I am not a a well off person by any means. It’s just so cruel what they do to us “trusting souls”! I am on retirement...a very small retirement amount every month. Screw them!

    I received a check such as this for car wrap. What would happen if I just went to the bank it is written on and cash it?
