MIAMI — A classified ad offering to pay chauffeurs $5,000 per month turned out to be a fake, scamming unsuspecting drivers out of lost wages. Gary Janiak, Jr. has pleaded guilty to scamming dozens of people by offering them nonexistent jobs.
A judge in Miami sentenced Janiak to a year in jail and ordered him to pay back more than $110,000. Prosecutors charged that Janiak and his girlfriend placed newspaper ads around the country with the promise of the phony limousine-driver jobs.
