Advertiser scam warning

Posted: Updated:

Ever consider putting a company logo on your car in exchange for cash? Police say watch out for scammers.

The Lamoille County Sheriff's Department says the scheme popped up on Craigslist. The fraudulent promotion claimed Pepsi would pay drivers $300 a week to put the beverage company's logo on their vehicles. But police called Pepsi and confirmed the ad was fake.

Authorities say never respond to online ads before verifying the promotion with the company.
