    I have received the same thing. I checked with the bank that was on check and the bank was real, so I gave the lady account number and then she asked me for check number and came back as no good.

    But it was supposed to be for Baskin Robbins but the check was from Rosa cafe and market inc. The addresses were all wrong also.

    I told the guy I deposited check but I really haven’t; he keeps messaging me saying I need to go early to get money order and KINDLY message him as soon as I do, so that’s what I’m going to do before I call him out on it. What do y’all think?

    I almost fell for it, but now, I will not be falling for this scam and I appreciate the hard work you guys do to help people from getting ripped off.

    Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!

    Anyways, here it is. . .


    "Dear,

    The Advertisement period for now is 3 months. If there's any course for extension, you would be notified. At the end of the program
    the advert decal would be removed at the company's expense and the cost of its removal will be included on the 1st week rental payment
    paycheck that would be mailed to you. Subsequent Rental Payment would be mailed to you on weekly basis. I am a freelance advertiser for
    Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream® based on contractual agreement.


    I'm happy to inform you that you have been successfully entered into the program. An expert, who will meet you has been allocated to
    install the decals on your car. You will therefore receive your payment alongside the money that will be paid to the national car
    Detailer (expert) in the mail. A check of $2520 would be mailed to you to cover your money and the Vinyl decals designer's expenses for
    affixing the decals on your vehicle and for its removal cost at the expiration of the advert program period (3 months). So, when you
    receive the payment, you will take out your first week pay of $500 and the rest of the funds from that same check should be transferred to
    the decals expert that will wrap the decal on your vehicle. All you need is to confirm the acceptance and understanding of this email.This
    is to afford mutual relationship between you and the Detailer.

    In view of this, please confirm the following details:
    (i)From which Social Media Platform did you find this advertisement?
    (ii)How long do you intend to carry the advertisement on your car?
    One (1) month, two (2) months or three (3) months?
    (iii)Do you use your car everyday?
    (iv) Which of the stated Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream® products vinyl
    decals would you want your car wrapped with: -

    (a) Vanilla
    (b) Chocolate
    (c) Mint Chocolate Chip
    (d) Pralines 'n Cream
    (e) Chocolate Chip
    (f) Jamoca® Almond Fudge ice cream

    Please note that your choice of product would also be a determining
    factor on the type of the Advert Vinyl Decal your car would be getting
    wrapped with.
    (v) Also reconfirm your name and address as it should be on the
    check,where your payment should be mailed.
    You are to be checking your email daily for updates and when your
    check will arrive in the mail. Again, Congratulations the Job is
    yours.


    Best Regards,
    Barr Efrain
    Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream® Advert Coordinator"

    I too was contacted to drive a wrapped car and I responded. I looked it up on Snopes and it said it was a scam. I told this to the person and he said nothing.

    I then today got an text from Anthony Churchill telling me I was approved and to deposit the check. I decided to go to this site and I am really glad since you have put my mind at ease.

    I informed Mr. Churchill I get really ticked about people scamming senior citizens.

      I just received a check for the Amount of $3,000.00~! Thanks for confirming what I suspected from the beginning.

    I received the 3000.00 dollars "check" in today's mail in a cardboard mailer. Anthony is anxious for me to deposit it immediately. I keep getting texts, and emails, from them.

    I am glad I kept looking for info on this, "too good to be true" scam. I almost fell for it. The check just does not feel like a real check paper. I sure do not have 2500.00 to pay the bank back!
