There has been a sudden increase in scammers pretending to be Advertising/Marketing companies and offering to pay people to wrap their cars with advertisements. Kind of like creating a rolling billboard. The scammers offer $300 or more per week and send a check for the first week's pay plus extra money needed to send to the "company" who will be putting the ad onto the car. The victim is to deposit the check and wire/send the money to the company owner.
Except the check is fake and bounces in about week or so. In the meantime the victim has sent his or her real hard-earned money to the scammer.
Ads look something like this...
