Watch Your Text's For This Scam.....

Car Wrap text scam

Hi Guys!

Hope you all had a safe and fun long weekend! 

I wanted to share a text message I got over the long weekend, that you may have received as well. Its the old car wrap scam that refuses to die and go away!

There is a car wrap scam text going around asking if you would like to make $300 for wrapping your car in an advertisement. The issue is the check the send you is bogus and they ask for some of it to be sent back to them. 

When we got the text I laughed and showed it to a friend, my car is really nothing special actually more of a junker, and no company in their right mind would pay to have their logo on it. So...I got online to see what I could find about this offer...and there it was...

Yet another scam. So protect yourselves please and delete the text, don't email this fool and share with family and friends so they are aware too.

If you get this text or already have, this is what you can do.....
