I received the letter and check with instructions on what to do text message confirm delivery
    by UPS . Had a check from the NATIONAL CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION Twin Cities 7701 France Ave S. Suite 360 Edina MN 55435 for the amount of $3,650.00 from the Bank of North Georgia. I was to deposit it let Janet Huntus know that I deposited it in my bank. And wait for further instruction and the check to go through in a few hours or a business day. A family member got caught up in a scam like this and was told not to tell the it could be dangerous for her and her family. Deposited checks waited bank responded checks were bad and all her account was blocked. She had no money could not get anything out of any several accounts her had there. They told her they no longer wanted her business after banking there for 60 years. I texted about the check the response was we partner with them. have not deposited check and will not. I got no response since then.

    To whom this may concern:
    I’m so happy and thankful I found this website. I just received a check via ups with tracking number and all. I almost fell for it. I too am on disability and thought this was a good opportunity to make some extra money. So I decided to investigate this and everything everyone said on here is exactly what these scammers are doing my check was for $1750, I was to keep episode$500 and get a money order for the rest with no name on it. Than email them back when I deposited this check in my account. So, so glad I didn’t do it. Thank you everyone for opening my eyes. Your all right It was to good to be true . You all saved me I’ll turn this check into the authorities. These people are heartless. I’m going to send them an email that I deposited it and mess with them try to get all the information I can.
    Again thank you all so much,
    Tami Jo

    I am also sure now after reading all reviews that I may be a victim of a scam from a Mr. Matthew Weiner an advert representative from coors beer. He has been contacting me via text and email. Matthewryanweiner@gmail.com I have not received the check yet. But my main curiosity is how I should deal with this. I’m always what if it’s not a scam. But 10 to 1 it usually is. I was hoping that just once the Lord was blessing me with the money I need at the time it is needed. I never lose my faith or trust in Him just in people. I know obviously I should not deposit the check but with what I heard about the threatening after all has been iniciated I am worried. And am curious on what actions I should take. I don’t have time to toy with the scammers nor do I have the patience to deal with such thievery. Please advise me on the proper steps to take.

    Thank you for all this info. I thought so too that it was a scam and did not reply to their emails. But today I received the check via USPS priority from Tacoma WA.
    I am too,, concerned since they have my address..and what is best to do… ? tell them I did not receive the check.. or bank can not cash it….let the police know!? Seems like a 419 scam… we had been victims in past.. I still think the police needs to know about this they can also take finger prints from the check.. I do NOT touch the check like on one corner only,lightly. Also for police to have more warnings/alerts for ppl about such scams !
    Thank you for your feedback !

    I also received Email about Lay’s Auto Wrap but i received a $4,450.90 Cashier’s Check from CENTIRC, PO Box 2456, West Monroe, LA 71294-2456 but Priority Mail Envelope came from IICHAEL BARIAN, 09 E. 241st St, RONX, NY 10470 and first letter of name was omitted, and first letter of city was omitted.

    Cashier’s Check cleared the bank and is sitting in my savings account for 2 or 3 days now,
    friday of last week i got text message “did you get the check,” after doing google searches and learning about this Car Wrap Scam i am not at liberty to forward monies i am now afraid that i may have received a Forged Cashier’s Check that may have legitimate account number, and routing account number on it, and that monies may have transferred from an actual account to my savings account. I am scared and don’t want to make any withdrawals or transfers ! There is an actual signature on the front of the Cashier’s Check plus my name and signature on the back of the check where recipient signs his name and signature for deposit reasons.

    Advice from a friend whom is a pastor tells me police may not investigate because i have not suffered any monetary loss, but im afraid i may have received a forged cashier’s check and that i may have stolen monies from someon’es bank account now in my bank account.

    This really scares the hell out of me !

    I approached a frito my wrapped car whose driver a woman was setting in a grocery store lot and asked her about how she got her car wrapped and she gave me the facts like most of the comments above. I went to a number she gave me and received a text after talking with a supposingly frito lay human resource person who arrangeages all wraps. From there it’s like above comments. I deposited check for 25000 and thought I’d wait for a week for check to clear if even it did. It seemed shady when told most of check would be going to installers of wrap. Well I’ve had doubts and sleepless night so I’m going to bank and tell them of this. I’ll show them correspondence and hope it doesn’t cause a problem with my bank. No money has been spent so wish me luck. I’m 68 but not stupid. Sherrie from california

    I agree with Halina. Have a little “fun” with them. Have them mail you the check. At least you are making them pay the Fed Ex or UPS delivery charges and they are going to get nothing for it. I just told my person that it was a scam and I’m not depositing a check. They are very offended by this. They keep badgering me and saying it isn’t a scam and asked the problem. I told them the problem was they couldn’t speak or write english. They said they were from France (Janice Weber) – ha. I just sent a text using Halina’s IRS idea. Response “Excuse Me?” This is getting fun.

    A week ago I received a text message “car wrap approved” from 403-768-1737. I replied “wrong number”. An automated response back to me “It’ll be mailed”… I think nothing of it and I forget about it.
    The next day (Sept 19, 2018) I receive an email with the same info from John Edward and Jeffrey Malcom who ironically both share the same email address at admin@jfmartwork.com… I’m rather perplexed, but again… go about my business because I really don’t have time to think about it, figuring it to be some sort of scam. I delete it.
    Today I received the package via priority mail. Inside has not one but 2 checks for $2,450.90 from Central Credit Union of Florida. Wow oh Wow, I’m thrilled, hahaha not…
    The outside envelope is addressed from EGO Solis West 87th Street, New York NY 10024 and the inside envelope is from Joe Lazar, U.S. Marshals Service, 2604 Jefferson Davis Highway, Alexandria VA 22301.
    Instructions tell me to go deposit the check and pull the cash out at the same time from my bank and I can keep $500 for myself and hand over the rest to the technician that will arrive to put the car wrap on my car. This is obviously a scam but it’s scary because A) these people have my name, home address, email address and phone number. B.) They are waiting to stop by my house to retrieve their cut of the money??? How scary is that? Do I text them back and tell them that I have handed the checks over to the FBI?

    I’m happy to inform you that you have successfully been entered into the program. Our auto wrap concept is sponsored by companies/corporate bodies.

    A start-up check of $2,350.27 will be issued by one of our sponsors and mailed to your address. The amount covers your first week pay ($300) and the installer’s charges. Your subsequent paycheck will be $300 weekly after the wrap has been installed.

    You are required to deposit the start-up check into your bank account and when it clears you will deduct your first week pay and send the balance to the installer via MoneyGram or cash deposit to their account. This is to afford mutual relationship between you and the installer. The balance which you are required to send to the installer is the payment for the Auto-Wrap installation, maintenance and removal.

    As soon as they receive the funds, they will contact you to schedule appointment on when to come over to your location or preferred location to have the wrap installed.

    In view of this, please confirm the following details;

    How long do you intend to carry the advertisement on your car?

    One (1) month, two (2) months or three (3) months?

    Do you use your car everyday?

    NB: An inspection agent will come over to your location from time to time to monitor if you still have the wrap on your car for the period which you stated

    If you are willing to get started, please reply this email stating that “I understand the payment process and I am willing to proceed”. Please include your name and full mailing address for confirmation and final approval.

    Sincerely,
    Robert sivia.

    I can not be more disappointed. A Cooks Timothy & I have been communicating since last Friday he’s going to call me tomorrow with the tracking number of a UPS shipment with a check in it. I’m on Social Security disability and was looking on websites to work from home and came across the Busch advertisment. I can’t believe I was ready to actually go through with this. I was curious to what the adverse meant might look like so I Googled Busch advertisements car wrapping and came across your website. My heart sank. But I am so thankful I came across this website instead. I haven’t received the check yet again he’s supposed to be calling me tomorrow with the tracking number. Should I at this point ignore him since I haven’t received the check yet or be upfront and tell him I know it’s a scam and then I’ll never hear from them again. Please advise I live in Las Vegas Nevada and have worked extremely hard for the last 30plus years in the Hotel hospitality industry until I became disabled and am now unable to work. The thing that is disheartening the most is these people know your looking for work and take advantage of that. My question is how do they end up on an “Indeed” website??

    So..I got the email for making money wrapping my car, I filled out the form and they sent the check. I knew it was fake the moment I got it. But here’s the thing now..they are threatning me . They said they are going to come to my house , and get the FBI and all this BS. The check is in my dresser drawer where it will remain..I’m a little nervous that they keep threatning me.. is there anything I can do? Here’s the email:

    Infact this is a message of which am using to express my negative feeling toward you and you have completely make things bad due to your silent and this is why i’m always tired of transacting with such people like you…we had a good conversation from the start and now that you receive the payment, you kept silent and never get back to me, first of all I’ll be contacting my lawyer right now for him to be aware of this and i will contact my uncle that he is a police and also file a report to the F.B.I department over there and let them deal with you because it seems you want to screw me with the money that was being sent to you and i am using this time to let you know i am not the kind of a person you can cheat or run with his money because i don’t just understand what you are trying to do with the money with you, i will give you just only 24hrs to get back to me with the MONEYGRAM AND WALMART-WALMART ONLY wiring details requested and if i don’t hear from you then be expecting I my self and the F.B.I at your address and i am very sure you would find your self in big trouble…Good day

    Again, the fake check was never deposited. I knew better .. but theres multiple people reaching out VIA text and I think phone calls but I dont answer..I’m nervous ..thank you!!

      Just tell them they don’t have to worry about contacting FBI that you already did it, but since they do have your address I think you might want to go to the police because you never know with that type of criminals

    I got this same offer via a text message, then gave my email address. I was excited about the extra money and after a couple of days I started getting skeptical (I’ve been scammed before) thank you for stopping me in my tracks. I have not received anything from them yet. The company they are going through is Cadbury. Can I just write return to sender on the envelope?

      You can just keep the check and ignore them. Or say you’ve never received it and ask they send another. Waste their time and money.

    Hey everyone, I have a new one here from ‘
    “1-714-293-8653 “…w/ a USPS tracking#9405510200828818443712,..and that the check will arrive at my home and i am supposed to receive this check, deposit it in my acc. (here is a new twist they have that i havnt seen before).. Immediately upon deposit of funds, I am to contact “OUT-SOURCES” with all the info on deposit receipt so they can contact GRAPHIC AGENT SPECIALIST to come to my house ETC> ETC>

    Now, last year (ID like to toss this in too cause its another scam for people who sell on let-go etc….I had an old stove for $80. and this lieutenant over seas wanted me to deposit a $2,000.00 check, keep my $80, and another $80 for my trouble and deduct any cost for western union, send the balance, for the movers who would come to my house and deliver the stove to lake tahoe where he would return home from overseas from fighting for our freedom, and call to give him the money gram reciever #, I called the bank in new york and asked them if they had an acc. for this womans name .. the bank would not tell me thier cashiers check was good , I contacted the banks fraud dept, they were not interested, so i took the check to my bank mngr. an she said she had no way to trace it and that i should not deposit it, (I had no intention of doing so)

    SOO here it is on my fridge ,as a wise man once said, however I did call the man and he actually argued with me when i told him that i would not deposit it and the bank wont cash it ( of course the bank would cash it because i have a good report) BUT BEWARE! that the last person to sign that check is responsible for the funds it is promised!, some people dont know that ,

    Anyway I tried to get an address from him to mail the check to and of course no-way. and he argued that it was his property and by law i had to deposit it in my acc.

    I laughed so hard i cried, and when i told him in fact that it was mailed to my address and it was made out to me that it became my property when it entered my mailbox .he almost begged me to go with the plan , so i wanted an address to send the fed. agent to. pick him up for us mail fraud, as he was using the post office to commit his crimes… never heard another word…

    So I dont know how much fun Im going to have with this one here for MILLER LITE on car ads. but people, share these things with your friends so they know! another way to spot a scam quick is the way they write their messages when the say “Graphic Agent Specialist” instead of body shop, and they dont use ” to ” and “for” or “A” or use proper past tense RE: deliver instead of delivered , you can usually tell a foreigner by their grammar when their trying to pass for good ol USA! so be careful and i hope my story helped at least 1 person, …have a great day.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your swift response and your willingness to work with us, Wrap advertising is the marketing practice of completely or partially covering (wrapping) a vehicle in an advertisement or livery, thus turning it into a mobile billboard. This can be achieved by simply painting the vehicle surface, but it is becoming more common today to use large vinyl sheets as decals. These can be removed with relative ease, making it much less expensive to change from one advertisement to another. Vehicles with large, flat surfaces, such as buses and light-rail carriages, are fairly easy to work with, though smaller cars with curved surfaces can also be wrapped in this manner. Wrap advertising is available to anybody irrespective of the vehicle you drive.

    We are currently seeking to employ individuals worldwide.

    How it works?

    Here’s the basic premise of the “paid to drive” concept: Our DRINK® seeks people regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert of our DRINK plastered on your car. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as “auto wraps,”that almost seem to be painted on the vehicle, and which will cover any portion of your car’s exterior surface.

    What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy?
    Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colorful, eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it’s a form of advertising with a captive audience,meaning people who are stuck in traffic can’t avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. This program will last for 6 months and you can decide to extend your contract after the initial 6 months.

    You will be compensated with $300 per week which is essentially a “rental”payment for letting our company use the space no fee is required from you. Our DRINK shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an up front payment of $300 inform of check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car. to this effect you are advise to check your email regularly to get update as to know when your upfront payment will arrive along with Graphic Artist address.

    1) You will receive a Certified Check. As soon as you receive the check, you will cash the check for the decal wrapping on your car, deduct $300 as your up-front payment. The rest of the funds should be transferred to the Graphic artist that will wrap the decal on your car. All you need is to confirm the acceptance and understanding of this email.

    2) You will make a transfer of funds to the Graphic artist at the nearest walmart outlet in your area, the Info which you will make the transfer to will be emailed to you soon.

    3) We’ll like to have some Information about your car.

And they are telling me there is nothing they can do .I was just looking to make extra money

      I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the bank is right. They scammed you into basically sending an envelope full of cash. That money is long gone. I would try and speak with a bank manager to see if there’s anything they can do to help lower the cost or possible offer some sort of repayment plan.

    I almost got scammed today as well for a Monster Energy drink wrap.

    My question is are there any legitimate companies that will pay you to wrap your car?

    • Steve Razinski
      Steve RazinskiFounder

      Unfortunately, no.

      Companies just aren’t looking to pay people to wrap their cars. It’s a fairly inefficient way of advertising and would require you to keep your car parked in a highly visible area with a ton of traffic for it to make any sense.

      Most companies will either use company cars, or hire people to drive company cars, like the Red Bull cars you see every now and then, and park at major events. The chance of finding someone to pay the average driver to put ads on their car is basically zero.

    I today received check for $1950.00. This was from State Employees credit union. It’s a cashiers check. Remitter: Michael Jones. No company name on check but Company name on receipt that reads C A REDING CO. Modesto , CA. They sell copiers and water. Guy texting me to go to bank deposit check. Thank you all so much for posting this scam. I told them that if it sounds to good to be true then it isn’t true!! Also I sent him a snippet of the scam I found haven’t heard from him since. I was and am concerned that they know where I live etc.. and wonder what would happen if they came and wrapped my car??! I told him check will be sent back to him tomorrow..,

    • Steve Razinski
      Steve RazinskiFounder

      Don’t send the check back and ignore any other messages this guy sends you. He lives overseas somewhere and cannot do anything to you. Nobody is coming to wrap your car. Hang the check on your fridge as a reminder of how you almost lost several thousand dollars!

    I received information about a Bud Light car wrapping job that paid $300 via check, in which it asked for basic information. I then got an email stating that if I provide info on my car/truck that a manager from Bud Light would “call” me and give me information about the job.

    Two days pass and I get a “text” not a call, asking me to confirm any information and that I would have to pay a tech to wrap my car.. now I started getting suspicious about it so I asked certain questions but they never seemed to answer them, so I kept asking questions still with no answers, so I sent a message that I will be contacting the Bud Light corporate office with the managers name and will see if it is legit or not.

    I haven’t received the “promised” check or any messages since then. Funny how I picked up on it after a few messages back for fourth because they misspelled alot of words and my questions went unanswered, and some of the wording didn’t seem right to me. I just wanted to share this so others may know to watch out for scammers.

      Scammers usually abandon you if you start to question the legitimacy of the “job offer” and will move on to easier prospects. Once they think you are on to them, it’s over. Good work questioning them and wanting to find the truth.

    Hi, my husband received this check for Kickstartenergy drink car advertisement and he deposit it with Bank. He send email and the agent texted him back just the same cronology as posted from Helina. The agent insist to send the rest money as soon as possible through Walmart2walmart but we did not do it. How i report this with Bank since the money is funded in my account. I believe this is a scam. What next step to do? Thank you.

      Absolutely DO NOT SEND any money to anyone. If you already deposited the check, go speak to a bank manager and let them know you were a victim of fraud. They will investigate the transaction and remove the funds from your account. Ignore and all messages the scammer sends you.

    So I kinda fell for it meaning i sent interest in it but then learned it was a scam. So now they say they are we doing me a check with info to keep 300 and to send the rest to the graphic company. Fortunately I know what it ends up as. Do I just ignore the check because I’m definitely not cashing it?
