Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your swift response and your willingness to work with us and we are sorry for the late response , 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 individual's world wide. How would you like to make money by simply driving your car or banner wrapped for Rockstar | Hype/REDBULL Energy Drink®

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

You will be compensated with $350 per week which is essentially a "rental"payment for letting our company use the space no fee is required from you. Advance adsworld Outdoor Advertising Inc. shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an up front payment of $350 inform of Money Orders 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.

The scammers behind the fraudulent scheme will send fake checks to their potential victims, ask them to cash the check, take their share of the money and wire the rest to a graphic designer. But, the checks are fakes and will bounce. The wired money will actually go to the scammers behind the fraudulent scheme. The victims will then be left to pay back the bank the wired amount and other charges associated with the processing of the check.

Remember, when you receive an offer that is too good to be true, please do your research before participating, even if the offers seem legitimate.
