Type of a scam Employment

I saw a "Paid to Drive Promo" ad in the newspaper, that was seeking car owners willing to have their car wrapped with a company ad. The compensation was for $300 a week, for up to 4 weeks. Registration was at [email protected] A representative by the name of Brooke Wallace contacted me via email and text message, saying the check was in the mail for the amount of $2950. $300 would be advanced to me, and the other $2650 would be due to the graphic artist who would be providing the wrap. I told a friend of mine, and he said it sounded like a scam he’d heard of before, where the check was fraudulent and would end up bouncing-causing you to owe your bank. When I looked the company up on the, there were already two mentions of this same company there as a scam.

So I found on our local newspaper about a promo where you can add a decal to your car and get paid so much per week to keep it on for about 12 weeks. Well Brook wallace contacted me and was like we will be sending you a Check for $3450 and 3100 I pay to the graphic artist. So yesterday I deposited the check in my account and she wanted me to send this company a $500 deposit which I refused to send because my bank put a lock on the funds for seven days
