    Subject: Re: Redrain AD for your vehicles

    Hello,

    Enveloping advertising is the marketing practice of completely or partially covering a vehicle with an advertisement or livery, transforming it into a mobile billboard. To do this, simply paint the surface of the vehicle, but it is increasingly common to use large sheets of vinyl as decals. These can be removed with relative ease, making it much less expensive to switch from one advertisement to another. Vehicles with large flat surfaces, such as buses and trams, are fairly easy to use, although smaller cars with curved surfaces can also be wrapped in this way. The wrapped advertising is accessible to everyone, regardless of the vehicle you drive.

    RedRain Energy Drink is a slightly gassy citrus-flavored beverage. RedRain Energy is synonymous with fun and great times. With a blend of unique ingredients such as green tea extracts. The RedRain Energy Drink is ideal for every night, before and after, offering the benefits of antioxidants and electrolytes.

    Are used to work in the money transfer business for the largest companies in the world. The scam is nothing new similar types scams were run using prepaid cards etc. the Don’t think because they’re not asking you to wire the money that you will be taking the new twist. Is to deposit the money and then send them a screenshot of your deposit slip from which they now have your bank account number and can drain your bank account accordingly

    bottom line is it is nothing but a scam and you, the person who deposited the check in your account will lose not only what you have deposited but also whatever else is in the same account. Since per the ask, you showed them the deposit slip!so beware I don’t fall for this get rich quick scheme it’s a new spin on an old bait and switch fraud!

    The elderly or anyone who may be cash strapped on a regulated budget is particularly susceptible to this fraud. Steer clear and keep an eye on what your elderly parents as they are easy targets...

    Well, add one more “sucker” to their list of people who “agreed to have their car “wrapped” for Street King” energy drink products. As described above, they sent me a “Cashiers Check” for $1,960.80 of which I was supposed to keep $500 and send the balance to the “installer” via Western Union.

    I deposited the check into my account but my bank put a “hold” on all but $300.00 for a period of two business days. Once the funds were released by my bank, I withdrew the $1,460.00 in cash.

    When I went to Western Union, they refused to honor the transaction because I did not “personally know” the recipient. My contact then said I should purchase iTunes gift cards totaling $1460.00 to send to the installer. Then I was directed to deposit the money directly into an account at Wells Fargo.

    The “install was scheduled for the next day at $10:00am. When no one contacted me by 10:30am, I double checked my bank account and ‘lo and behold’, the deposit has been “reversed” and my account is now overdrawn.

    The perpetrator even had the nerve to contact me again “apologizing “ for the mixup and promising to refund me the entire $1,960.80 via Western Union by the close of business today.

    Needless to say, no further contact has been received. Chick me up as another gullible senior citizen who really needed the extra money just to make ends meet. Should have known it was too good to be true but I was desperate.

    I’m not even sure what that is. Since I don’t drink alcohol or any kind I was a bit reluctant to sign up for it. I won’t sell or advertise something I wouldn’t use myself.

      Never click on a link to sign into your online accounts. Go directly to www.outlook.com and sign into your account from there, once you have signed in, you will be notified of changes that need to be done to your account. This is the only effective way of protecting yourself against phishing scam.

    HI from Edmonton Canada,

    I received text message with advertising offer so I e-mailed them with my questions first. Yes, I got an e-mail back...In a minutes time I found online that it is a scam going around!

    So this is what I received back from them:

    "From: Eden Spring <canada@edenwc.com>

    Date: September 28, 2016 at 5:21:39 AM MDT

    To: "alexcliche37" <alexcliche37@gmail.com>

    Subject: Vinyl Advertisement

    Hello,

    Thanks for responding to our message. Eden Vinyl wrap advertising is a marketing practice of partially covering (wrapping) a vehicle in our company's advert, thus turning it into a mobile billboard. This is achieved by simply installing the vinyl sheet on a small portion of your vehicle surface.

    Eden Springs is a leading provider of workplace drinks solutions, offering a complete, one-stop service to meet every organization’s water and coffee needs. We are currently seeking individuals in Canada to join our marketing campaign by installing our advert on their vehicle at $300 per week. This earning is classified as private earning, thus not applicable to tax deduction.

    How it works?

    Here's the basic premise of the “paid to drive” concept: EDEN SPRINGS - The Water & Coffee Company seek residents in the Canada who drives to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a small advert for "Eden Springs" placed 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 a little 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 5 months and the minimum you can participate is a month.

    What is the Duration?

    The minimum term is 4 weeks and maximum is 20 weeks.

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

    The decal doesn't damage the paint of car and will be removed by our representative once the contract expire. We will be responsible for installation and removal of the wrap.

    You will be compensated with $300.00 per week which is essentially a “rental” payment for letting our company use the space and no fee is required from you. EDEN SPRINGS shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an upfront payment of $300.00 in form of a check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car. It is very easy and simple, no application fee required. To register, you are required to provide the information below and confirm your interest and commitment to working with us in order to proceed.

    I also received a text stating i could make $500 a week and to email sherryj32743@gmail. Of course i ingored it and put it on my spam-block list. These texts are ridiculous & the phone calls are extremely annoying-why do i even receive them in the first place?

    Something should be done to stop these scam artists-i feel for those that fall for them.to say the people who who get scammed by them are stupid is such a derogatory comment.

    Not only does it show your complete ignorance and lack of empathy for others, it proves that the only one who is truly "stupid" is the people making that comment-what ever happened to compassion & empathy for others?

    Is this what we have become as the human race? Oh what a sad day it is----make a difference, help one another-protect those that are unable to protect themselves-love, smile and be blessing to someone else- fight the good fight!!!

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