Get paid to drive your car? Nah

The FBI’s Internet crime center said it’s received several complaints involving a scam that convince’s the victims they can make big bucks advertising a company’s logo on their personal vehicle while they go about their normal daily routine. Those scammed reported they responded to an online posting seeking car owners who would be willing to have a vinyl decal or auto “wrap” on their vehicles advertising companies such as Coca Cola, Monster Energy drink, Carlsberg beer, Heineken Co., and Red Bull.
Victims were advised they would be paid an average of $400-$600 per week inexchange for driving around with vinyl advertising signs wrapped around their vehicle.
Those interested in participating were asked to provide their contact information
and vehicle details. They were promised an up-front payment, which would be sent
by check or money order. Those who fell for the scam received a check or money order for more than the promised amount. They were directed to cash it and wire the difference to a third party, who was supposed to be the graphics designer to pay for the cost of the design. The checks and money orders turned out to counterfeit and the criminals, once again, were able to convert fraudulent checks and money orders into untraceable cash, leaving the victim responsible for the bank’s losses.

    Energy drinks are great but most of them contain caffeine. I would usually prefer the ones based on green tea.`

I have the email he sent me if you wish to see it!! thank you, Grace.
