An advertising scam has shown up in Mattawa and the OPP are warning people not to fall for it. The OPP says scammers claim they’ll pay you for putting advertisements on your vehicle. They send a cheque you cash and then you give some of the money to the person who supposedly puts the advertising decals on the vehicle.
But Police say the cheque is a fake as one Mattawa resident found out. After the homeowner did as instructed, he learned the cheque was a phony and he had to reimburse the bank the money he gave the other person.
