Authorities are warning of a scam where victims get a bogus check and end up wiring money out of their own account.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said it has received multiple reports of an email circulating with an offer to wrap a vehicle with advertising graphics for well-known companies.
In the email, the victim is told they will receive between $300 and $400 per week to drive around with advertising graphics wrapped around their cars.
The victim is asked to provide their contact information and then the scammer offers to send them a check for a larger amount of money, such as $1,800.
The email instructs the victim to deposit the check, take out the first week's pay and wire transfer the rest to a graphic company which will customize the advertising wrap for the victim's vehicles.
Once the bogus checks are deposited, the victims end up wiring money from their account to the scammer. When the check bounces, the victim has lost whatever money was wired.
If you have been a victim of this scam or would like more information, call the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office at 602-876-1011.
