    The latest scam to avoid: car wrapping

    The common thread with these scams (whether it's paying you to do something or buying your car) is the scammer sends you a cashier's check, tells you to deposit it, keep like $500, and send the rest to someone else. The check turns out to be phony and you are out the money. If anyone wants you to deposit a check and send some of the money to someone else, it's going to be fake.

    Some people seem to have an aversion to getting a real job. There are so many ways to make an honest living. How do these people sleep at night?

    Seems like, in spite of all the publicity exposing these scams, people still fall for them. When that Nigerian prince finally returns my calls and sends me that $2 million usd he promised, I am going to use that money to launch a major effort to educate everybody about these scams!
