A couple weeks ago we brought your attention to a car wrapping scam that caught the eye of the North Platte police department.
The scam is still taking money out of some Nebraskan's pockets.
This scam is the same as the emails we all get, that say a relative is in some far away country and they need money, but this scam has a more sophisticated approach and is reaching into central Nebraska.
"This scam is just an old scam with a new twist," said North Platte Police Department PIO Rodney Brown.
The scam begins when a "company" online says they will pay to have your car wrapped in advertising for another company.
If the victim accepts the "job" they will receive a check for a large sum of money...then they are instructed to cash the check.
Then they are to keep part of the money as payment and then send the rest via wire transfer to a fake car wrapping company.
After the victim sends the money he or she finds out that the check was a phony and loses thousands of dollars.
"It's basically the old check cashing scam and adding a business approach," said Brown.
Cody Hamilton from Saint Paul, Neb. thought an extra paycheck and an easy $400 dollars a week was worth an advertisement on his car.
"Your hoping for this big break and then you get turned down...kinda disappointed," said Hamilton.
But when Hamilton got the check in the mail.
"As soon as I got the check I realized on the security features that it was a fake pretty quick," said Hamilton.
"Folks if it's too good to be true it is," said Brown.
And if he were to say something to the scammers.
"It's sad, you need to stop ripping people off. Stop being lazy and get yourself a job earn money like the rest of us," said Hamilton.
It's easy for people to get caught in this scam people it doesn't ask you for an up front cost.
But they try to get you through that wire transfer at the bank before you know it's a fake.
A lot of banks know about these scams so a lot of time they can help out.
