Scam Alert - Placing an ad on your car doesn't get you paid

I just heard of a new scam.  It goes like this.  You receive an e-mail or other solicitation that indicates that you can add an advertisement to your car, drive it around, and get paid by the advertiser.  To do this, you just need to pay a one time fee of $39.95.

Unfortunately, this is a scam.  While it is true that there are companies that will hire you to drive around a vehicle with their ads on it, you don't have to pay a membership fee to do so.  Any offer where you are supposed to get paid but requires a payment from you to get started is almost always a scam.

As I often heard growing up, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  And that's even more true in this day and age.
