Advertising Scams are targeting unsuspecting members of the public across North Eastern Ontario. The OPP is warning the public of a scam advising you to put company advertisements on the side of your car in exchange for money. In some scenarios you will receive a text message saying, place our vinyl ad on your car and earn up to $300 per week.
The scammers will send you money to have your vehicle wrapped by a local designer.
One victim had cashed the cheque at his bank who notified him the cheque was fraudulent. The victim lost all of the money he deposited into the arranged account.
If you are unsure of the authenticity of a request contact your bank, local police, a friend or a relative to be sure you don’t fall victim of one of these scams.
