A Montreal student is on the hook for 4k dollars after getting involved in a text message scam!
The unsolicited text, from a phone number with a southern Ontario area code, said she could earn $300 a week for up to 20 weeks for having her car wrapped in decals advertising a beverage company — essentially turning her car into a mobile billboard.
What Cataford didn’t realize was that the offer was a scam.
In the space of two weeks, the 19-year-old college student ended up owing money to her bank.
The scammers got away with nearly $4,000 by knowing the ins-and-outs of the Canadian banking system and using it to their advantage.
