Beware of this scam! The email comes from John Briggs (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or Brian Harvey (email@example.com
). Both are scam artists.
The email will be titled: Re:Careerbuilder Job Application.
The email is as follows:
Would you like your car wrapped with Bluebird Prepaid Debit Card by American Express advert for $300 weekly? Get back to me if interested.
This is how it works:
Heres the basic premise of the Car Wrap Advert concept: Bluebird Prepaid Debit Card by American Express seeks people regular citizens, not professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for Bluebird Prepaid Debit Card by American Express. plastered on your car...
This program will last for 3 months and the minimum period you can participate is 1 month You will be compensated $300 (300 hundred per Week), which is essentially a rental payment for letting our Company use your car. We shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. When taking on the wrap we shall also be in charge of handling that and when taking off the wrap after the contract period is over if any damage is done to your original car paint, we will make sure to have it fix and compensate you an extra $500 for damages though I assure you no damage will be made.
When you send them your name and address they send you a check for $2,230.82. The check was sent Priority mail from John Briggs from the following address: Malcolm X College, 1900 W. Van Buren Street, Chicago, IL 60612. John Briggs wanted me to Western Union $1,700 of the money to someone by the name of Laura Horwitz at the adddress of: 2225 W North Ave, Melrosk Park, IL 60160. The check is from the company Mendez Fuel Holdings 1 LLC. The bank was Total Bank (www.totalbank.com
) located at 2720 Coral Way, Miami, FL 33145-3271. I thought it was very strange for a company that would pay you and not ever speak to you over the phone. All he did was text. I took the check to the check cashing office and they told me that the check was bogus and they had 4 other checks for the same company they had to confiscate from other people. I tried calling and texting John Briggs (if that's even his real name) but he didn't answer me back. I would like for these idiots to be caught.
