    I was sent this exact same email through my college email which I thought was secured as I never before received junk or spam emails. But I told my husband about the opportunity as I am a stay at home mom/student and he had his doubts about being too good to be true. But when you think about it making 1200 a month doing nothing but drive your car and go about your daily life should have been a red flag for me to know it was a scam. I gave him my info like my mailing address but I emailed him right before writing this comment that I'm reporting him to the authorities.

    I received notification of this offer allegedly from a coach at the community college where I work and followed up with a Mark Ross, who claimed to be a supervisor for UEFA EURO 2020.

    Initially I thought this was a legit offer until I received an initial check for $4850 mailed (allegedly) by HenrI Bile in Appleton, MD but written by a personal injury attorney in Woodbury, NY - Daniel Buttafuoco PLLC. All of a sudden “Mark” seemed very interested in my cashing the check. When I started researching Mark Ross and UEFA several fraud alerts were among the results.

    I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. I let “Mark” know that I had learned his offer was a fraud and the check was a fake. He replied that I was a fool. I have ceased communication with him and only regret that he has my mailing address.

      I recently received the same invitation and am waiting for the check to arrive. They don't mention the check until later.

      "How is it going with you and thanks for getting back to me. It is important we get started so that you can get your car wrapped and begin participation. The least you can participate is 2 Months and as I informed you earlier, you will be compensated $300 which also includes $50 for gas each week but for the first week, The payment will cover for both your weekly pay as well as additional funds to provide the Specialist who will be coming to place the decal on your car. So all you are to do upon receipt of the payment is to get it deposited into your account so that funds can be released to you and when they are, you let me know so I can inform the Specialist to meet with you. Placing the sticker on your car should not take more than 30 minutes.All you are to do is to meet up with the specialist with your Car. Also, I shall provide him/her with your cell number so you can both be in touch and fix a place and time to meet. Note that Before the decal is placed on your car, you are required to sign a document which the specialist would be bringing along, so carefully read the terms and conditions before appending your signature and ensure to get a copy from him/her as well, just for your own record incase of any damage on your car or breach of contract.

      Lest I forgot, You must ensure to provide the rest funds after you must have deducted your weekly compensation of $300(i.e from the total amount sent to you in the check) to the Specialist or else he/she would refuse to place the decal.Though work has been quite hectic as we are looking to take the campaign to all states,I shall contact you as soon as am less busy to attend to any questions you might have and also to discuss at length.I hope your provided cell number is still available?

      Best,

    This was sent to my college email and I followed up with a conversation with a friend.

    My friend said to open a new bank account just for this job opportunity to protect my primary bank account from any fraud withdrawals.

    So, I did open another bank account, but continued to look up Mark Ross' information via his telephone number and found this article.

    Thank you!

    I will keep my new bank account and find other legit income streams.
