Advertisers pay big bucks to get the word out about their product, and with so many companies headquartered in North Texas there's plenty of promotion to go around.
A Carrollton woman has a warning for you about wrapping your car in an advertisement.
Catherine Jamieson's car is copper red and kind of looks like a can of Dr Pepper.
So she wasn't shocked when she got a text message saying that the company wanted to put a sticker on her car advertising the product and would pay her $500 a week to do it.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The text message said it was a new marketing campaign for the Plano-based company.
After she clicked the link, she got a letter in the mail now wanting her to wrap her entire car, not just place a sticker.
The letter had a big red flag for Jamieson, and should be one for you, too.
She was instructed to cash an enclosed $3,500 check and get money orders for a total of $3,000 to pay for the wrapping of the car, and keep $500 for herself.
Jamieson called Dr Pepper first.
The company confirmed to NBC 5 and Jamieson that no such program exists, and they said it's more likely a scam.
Jamieson knew if and when the check bounced she would be held liable for the funds.
