    Would You Wrap Your Car in an Ad for $300 Weekly?

    Reply
  2. Here is what I received. Notice the email at the very bottom.
    Hello,

    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.

    Don’t Have a Car?

    What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy?

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 3 months and the minimum you can participate is a month.

    What is the Contract Duration?
    Once the wrap has been installed, minimum term is 2 weeks and maximum is 12 weeks.

    Would the wrap/decal damage the paint of my car?

  6. Thanks Steve. I humbly admit I’m being as greedy as these theives but only because I’m broke, unemployed & desperate. That’s why I even considered it & probably why we all want to try to scam the scammers. Thanks for the advice.

    Reply
  7. You’re dealing with PROFESSIONAL criminals. What good do you think will come from providing them with all of your personal details?

    I will not be approving any more comments that ask how to get around these scam artists and still keep the money.

    You can’t because the money doesn’t exist.

    Reply
  8. Can I just give them my info so I’ll get the check? Not gonna cash it or anything but just to have it? They can try and steal my identity I doubt they can even get a credit card with my horrible credit.

    Reply
  9. It’s a FAKE check. It won’t clear and you’ll likely get the cops called on you for trying to illegally cash a forged check.

    At best, you face legal repercussions. You will not get a few thousand dollars for free.

  10. Got the Amp Drink scam, gave them address. Got the check but haven’t cashed it.

    Do you think I could cash it at a check cashing place? Foul yes but I want scam the scammers and of course the $ would help, I need it right now.

    Someone please help me…

  12. I just responded to one of these scams for Amp Energy drink. I just sent them my info but that’s it. I don’t even have any banking accounts so what would they have told me to do then? Just cash it anywhere and send them the money? I would have figured that a scam right off the bat if they would have told me to send them the money back. Hahaha. Anyone know a legal car advertising place…I wouldn’t mind at all getting paid to have something plastered all over my car!!!

    Reply
  13. Please do not cash these checks or even encourage others to cash the checks. The absolute best case scenario is that you get hit with hefty bank fees for depositing a fake check. Losing your identity, thousands of dollars, or getting questioned by the authorities are all extremely likely scenarios as well.

    Reply
  14. So I’ve went as far as just waiting for check at this point which means they have my information. Can they do anything with it and if I do ever get a check do I even accept it or do I acccept it and tear it up? If I was to send check to whatever bank is on it with info from scammer would that be best way to go? I guess I’m most worried about what if anything they can do with my info?

  17. Your bank will charge you a fee (typically $30 but can be higher) for depositing a fake check. Make no mistake, the check is fake and WILL bounce.

  19. Hello,

    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.

    What is the Contract Duration?

  24. I’m frequently searching for methods to advertise my services and had some graphics done by another company. Is it viable to use the same artwork? The graphics company was Concord Signs & Banners 3568 Kimball Way Concord, CA 94518 – 925-808-3817. I am not positive if the files will be in a format that you can work with.

  25. I actually almost fell for this! Thank God I decided to do a google search. I actually received a couple of emails from them and this is the latest. They have not asked me to deposit then withdraw and send money back. What if someone was to scam the scammer and just take their check to a check cashing place or is it a fake check a well?

  26. Anyone know what would happen if you keep the money? A friend got the check from “red bull” from a chase bank, deposited it. Waited a few days and took all the money out and is keeping it. I found out and looked into it and found all this. Anyone knows what could happen?

    Reply
  27. So if I already sent him my info, and got a response back from him saying the check is coming, what do I do? I obviously won’t try to deposit the check, but should I be worried about my identity being stolen or my house being broken into or anything like that?

    Reply
  28. Saw this on CraigsList today, and nearly bit. The giveaway for me was that they would only do business via text, rather than e-mail. I’d even prepared the e-mail to send to them, only to realize there was no e-mail address! So, I checked to see if this was a scam, and sure enough, it was!

    Thanks everyone for putting this stuff up. I am, BTW, a finance professional and am familiar with legitimate car wrapping, and thought this was one of those. Just goes to show that even if you know “stuff”, you don’t know *all* the “stuff”.

  34. As a follow-up to my post above, I “went ahead” with the scammers to see what they would do (with inaccurate info given to them). They sent me out a check, Express Mail (which cost them about $20). The check was from an account from a legitimate university/hospital that’s in Texas. I questioned the scammer as to what the university/hospital in Texas had to do with anything. He came up with some nonsense that they did a deal with them and they had excess energy drinks they needed to pay off.

    I contacted the head of the real university/hospital to inquire and let them know what was going on. They told me it was a scam, and asked me to send the check to them, which I did along with the Express Mail envelope and all of the information I had so that hopefully they could pursue the scammers.

    I hope they find them and throw them in jail for a long time!

  35. Is there really even an energy drink called “Hype”…did they leave out the “r”? Anyway…I wrote to Hype but they haven’t bothered to write back. Fredrick, however, insists he’s for real and didn’t even mind that I emailed both he and Hype at the same time. It would be pretty funny if the drink and its website are a scam…and it would be nice if Hype would post on its website that either Fredrick is a real guy with a real offer or to beware…unless, of course Hype/r is not really a real drink…

  41. At best, you get hit with a fee for trying to cash a fraudulent check. At worst, the authorities start questioning you because you’re accepting checks that originated from stolen bank accounts sent to you from overseas criminals.

    These guys are professional thieves. DO NOT do any “work” for them. You will lose an absolute ton of money and you can even gain a criminal record.

    How it works?

    Here’s the basic premise of the “paid to drive” concept: RED BULL seeks people — regular citizens,professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for “RED BULL” 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.

    They failed to say how much the check that was to be sent to me “via courier service” would be written for.

    But in the first letter it was only $300.00 up front. They are now going to double my weekly salary. Hmmmmmmmm. I call Bull Shit, not Red Bull.
