Job seekers beware of checks to pay for vehicle wraps.

After posting her resume on line Lisa Victoria got an offer promising to drive cash into her checking account.Lisa says job, "Oh my gosh I'm making 400 dollars a week you know having my car wrapped."

And she got an 18-hundred dollar check to get rolling. While job seekers are told they can turn their car into a money making canvas,fact finders has uncovered the potential for a scam that could cost them thousands of dollars in the long run.

Lisa was to send most of the money back to wrap up the deal but she discovered the check is a fake. Lisa says, "I didn't deposit the check because i knew it would bounce."

The Better Business Bureau says some job seekers are getting wrapped up in the phony check scheme.
Jim Hegarty with the BBB says, "So not only did you not get a new part time job, you are out in many cases a significant amount of money."

Vehicle wraps are growing in popularity. Speedpro installs 400 a year but with careful screening. Pat Jarrett owner of Speedpro Imaging says, "The thing we watch our for is we get a lot of people who call and say, hey pay me to put your wraps on my vehicles. The biggest challenge is there's just to much liability out there."

Both job seekers and vehicle wrap businesses are being warned that con artists are sending out phony checks.
