Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I responded to a text msg for a car wrap position with ‘Dr Pepper’.(Andrew Cole is listed on the flyer but on the envelope it says that the check came from Dan Hargett)
This man sent me a check told me to deposit in my acct. When I hesitated he sent me a subsequent text msg to go check my mail for the check which I was instructed to deposit in my acct and send him the acct number after I do so. Red flags went out when I read the instruction flyer that told me precisely what to do in an uneducated fashion. The so called instruction sheet was full of typographical errors.
My daughter also replied.
Both of us since have signed up for identity fraud protection.
