New Paid To Drive Scam

There appears to be a new paid to drive auto wrap scam that is making its way around that you should avoid if you don't want to lose money. This is an email I received the other day:

Hi was recently contacted by a company who were looking for people to carry their advert on their vehicles. A slight red flag went off when they stated that I would receive two money orders. I was instructed to keep my payment ($400) and send the rest of the money ($1560) to New Mexico where the technician is trying to get the materials for the advert. I just want to know if this is the common process as to placing car wraps on vehicles? I am concerned because this sounds very familiar to a checking scam that I was previously made aware of. If you can assist me with the information needed to verify this information it would be greatly appreciated.

This is absolutely a scam. What will happen is that you will receive two money orders that appear real, but have been forged. Your bank will initially accept them and you will send the $1560 on while keeping the $400. Then a few days later you will receive a notice from your bank saying that the money orders were fake and the $1960 will be deducted from your account. Since you have already sent the $1560, there is no way for you to recover it.

This scam is not new and is used in many forms, but this is the first time I have heard about it being used in conjunction with car wraps and getting paid to drive. Remember that you should never be expected to pay any money in order to get paid to drive and if you are ever told you need to pay an upfront fee to an auto wrap company, you are being scammed.
