Scam Description

I received a vanilla UPS envelope in the mail on 12/30/2022. I received a text message about it and at first I thought I never ordered anything. I opened it to find 2 things. A price of paper with instructions that were made VERY clear to follow all instructions carefully. Along with a check, for $4,758. I thought what’s going on, could this be a family member I don’t recall? So myself, my husband and my step mom all got together and started researching. Turns out that who they are trying to say they are “Dr.Pepper Car Wrap” is a scam! I’m grateful we investigated before we cashed it!
