The Auto Car Wrap Advertising Scams and Fake Checks

Scammers are sending out Auto Car Wrap advertising scams to thousands of persons via email message, Craigslist and other advertising medium. The scams claim that vehicle owners with a driver's license can be paid $200 or more weekly via check (cheque) to have their vehicle wrapped with an advertisement.

    I have received several emails and phone texts from a man named Bryan Kessler. I have received an envelope supposedly containing a check for $2550.00. I am supposed to deposit it in my bank, keep $600 out for the first two wks for myself and write the remainder of the check to the person who will wrap my vehicle. I am apprehensive and skeptical to even open the envelope. He is really pushing me to go to my bank asap, and have my car wrapped tomorrow.

    I think I'm going to the local police station in the morning to see if this is something they need to check into. I will then go talk to an officer at my bank. There is just something about this thing that doesn't smell right. Who sends a total stranger they know absolutely nothing about a check for $2550 to begin with?

    BTW, this is a Monster Energy Drink ad. Have you heard anything about anyone using them to pull off scams similar to this? ~

      Definitely a scam, a Jeffery Riccielli sent me a check. I destroyed it and reported it. ~


    • info: 8 months, 4 weeks ago

      It is a scam. They will use different advertisers. ~
