In early November 2013 I remember getting an email offering to rent ad space on my car for over $400 / week. I have seen such cars on the road, and so I responded thinking it was a legitimate offer, because I have seen such vehicles on the road, and there are legitimate companies that do this. After replying to the email, I heard no more of it and completely forgot about it.
On December 4, 2013 I received a $1,950 check by Fedex next day. There were no instructions about what the check was for, and the company name and address on the check was completely different than the senderâ€™s address, so I immediately figured it was a scam. I called the sender, and they told me that their Fedex account was â€œhackedâ€, but close inspection of the check (which did not originate from the sender) revealed it was a real check, but the sender had never heard of the company whose name and address was on the check. I IMMEDIATELY reported the scam to the Waterford NJ Township Police and turned over the packaging and the check.
Initially contacted by email in what sounded like a legitimate offer to rent \"mobile ad space\" on my car.
