Frank Jonnson Modeling Scam

I am aware of similar scams so I was not a true victim, but I’m reporting to help others avoid the scam.

The scammer offers a high pay for a one-day job and offers many details to avoid seeming fake. The promise is that they would mail a check to the victim and they would need to deposit it to their account and use part of it to “pay for materials that would be used”.. Those payments would go to others involved and after it’s too late the check would bounce (since it’s fake) and the victim would be left with $0.

Below is the email I was sent:
