Victim Location 95736
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
The Craigslist Job Posting we responded to stated: "VERVE ENERGY DRINKS ADVERT: Wrap your car for verve energy drink advertisement payment is $400.00 every week. Text (234) 300-2851 for details. No application fees needed".
When we texted the above phone number and someone contacted us within hours. They asked what kind of cars we had and for photos of our vehicles. They chose our truck and a couple of days later we received text messages with their instructions. We were told that our check was en-route via USPS Priority Mail. They wrote that when it arrived we were to "Deposit" the check and keep the first week’s payment of $400.00 (plus $50.00 for "running around money"), for ourselves and "Wire" the remaining balance to the "Specialist" who would be applying the "car wrap!"
