Murfreesboro woman falls victim to "Red Bull car wrap" scam

  Email   Print

Another person has fallen victim to the “cash my check” scam. A Murfreesboro woman called the police after realizing that a $2,450 check she cashed was a fake. The problem in this case, much like other scenario’s we have heard about, the woman found out the check was fraudulent after she took a portion of the funds to mail back to the culprit who mailed her the check.

In this latest incident, the 56-year old victim said that she was lured by a job offer on CraigsList that she couldn’t refuse. The scam artist told her that she would be paid for having a Red Bull wrap placed on her car. The victim was supposed to cash a portion of the check, pay herself a portion of the money, and then send over $1,800 back to the culprit via a money gram. Needless to say, she did it.

The good news is she never actually had her vehicle wrapped with a Red Bull ad. The bad news is she now owes the bank $2,450. What makes this case different than others; the person whom she mailed the check to - received, signed and cashed the check in Chicago.

WGNS checked around and apparently the Red Bull car wrap scam has been circulating on CraigsList for over a year. You can see a copy of one of the ads that we found by visiting our site at WGNSradio.com (below).
