Ohio woman loses thousands of dollars in ‘car wrap’ scam
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A local woman says she lost thousands of dollars to a sneaky scam officials say they’re seeing right now, here in Northeast Ohio.
Our partners with the Cuyahoga County Scam Squad say financial hardship, driven by the pandemic, is driving people to take the bait.
The scam begins with an offer of $500 a week to simply drive around with an ad on your car.
Tizita Guffy thought she was signing up to promote Crest toothpaste, before she realized the job offer was in deed too good to be true.
“For me, if I would have followed my gut, I wouldn’t be where I am right now,” she said.
Guffy says she and her husband stumbled upon the link offering to pay people to use their car to advertise a product.
