Beware of "Paid To Drive Concept By Tropicana Orange Juice" Auto Car Wrapping Advertising Scam

The "Paid To Drive Concept By Tropicana Orange Juice" auto car wrap or autowrapping advertising below is a scam. The scam claims that vehicle owners with a driver's license can be paid $500 or more weekly via check (cheque) to have their vehicle wrapped with an advertisement. The scammers behind this fraudulent scheme or scam will send you fake checks, ask you to take your share of the money and wire the rest to a graphic designer or give it to someone else. But, the checks are fakes and will bounce. The wired money will actually go to the scammers behind this fraudulent scheme. You will then be left to pay back the bank the wired amount and other charges associated with the processing of the check. Whenever you receive offers that are too good to be true, please do your research before participating, even if the offers seem legitimate.

    In spite of all the errors I was intrigued, so I gave information. I used my work address and phone number and waited to see what would happen.
    Received my check today, with even more errors! The check came via FedEx and was in a plain white envelope in the FedEx box.

    The envelope reads:
    "Kindly read this email below and follow the instructions

    As soon as you receive the Check, go straight to your bank and deposit the cheque at your bank. You'll need to enquire from the bank when funds would be available for withdrawal in 24 hours.

    So enquire from the bank if the funds would be available the same day or in 24hours.

    As soon as you deposit the check kindly email me and let me know when the funds will be available for withdrawal or text to this number below Is very important you text this number when you receive and deposit the payment.

    Kindly make sure your mobile phone is available for me to speak to you and text me or reply to 3234099272 or madcareed@gmail.com.

    My company's name, as well as my personal name, were printed on fraudulent checks that have been overnighted to unwitting targets of this Tropicana O.J. car-wrap scam. This was brought to my attention yesterday by a potential victim.

    Distressing to know that we have randomly become party to this ugly scheme. So far, we've received two calls from people in Rhode Island and Maryland who were smart enough to look us up and telephone before depositing the checks.

    If you receive a check drawn on People's United Bank, N.A., with a Shelburne Falls, MA mailing address, it is fake.

    Both checks were in the amount of $1,849.37. Similarly, if you receive an overnighted check that you were not expecting from any other company, chances are it's fraudulent and should be reported to the Postmaster and your State Attorney General.

      Yes, it is illegal to knowingly cash a fake check. Remember, cashing the check will not hurt the scammer, it will only hurt you. You will be arrested for attempting to cash a fraudulent check and will have to pay back the money along with the fees for processing the fake check.

    I got a text message saying they would pay me $500 a week to put a sticker on my car; they asked how often I drive my car and they wanted me to send them my name, address and they would send me a check right away.

    They said they would have someone come out and put the sticker on my car and they wanted to know how many months I would keep it on.

    There 1-3 months and if I was going to do 3 months then they would have someone come out more. The name they are using is (Cyril Harper) and the number it’s coming from is 1410200501 and at the end of the email it says send my info to get the first week's check ASAP thanks.

    I had inquired about it as well. Theoretically, this could be a good marketing tool if done legally and properly. Once they said they had mailed me a check I knew it was scam. No body just sends money like that and asks you wire the rest...
