Victim Location 93534
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
Paid to drive concept by HUBLOT. Received a message from them stating that I do qualify to carry the advert on my vehicle. Also they OUT-Sourced the payment of funds to another agency and not to be alarmed by the payment coming directly from Hublot. Once I received the check to deposit it and let them know when the date the check will clear my bank, their specialist would come to my home or if there was a FastSign location close to me where I could meet their specialist. The check was in the amount of $1980.00 and I was to keep $500.00 and write a check out to the specialist for the remaining amount. When I did receive the check I keep getting messages to deposit it in my bank a,s,a,p. so they would know when it would clear the bank. I told them I was going to call FastSign to set up arrangements to have the so called decals put on my car and they told me NOT to contact FastSign, that they had nothing to do with it. The check was also written on a restaurant in Georgia, in which I called and sent them a copy of the check, they were going to forward it to their corporate office and they will get back to me. I did take the check to the bank to see if they could find out if the check was real or not, but the bank on the check would not give out any information about it. I DID NOT deposit the check, instead I decided to report it and not get myself into any kind of problems with my credit or my bank. The man I was messaging back and forth with is William Walker, from Hublot, or so he said. I have saved all the messages and the check and envelope that I received from them.
