    Subject: Re: Advertising Program

    Congratulations !

    I am happy to inform you that you have successfully been entered into the program. Our auto wrap concept is sponsored by individuals/companies/corporate bodies.

    A start-up check of $2,300.00 will be issued by one of our sponsors and mailed to your address. The amount covers your first week payment ($300) and the installer's charges. Your subsequent paycheck will be $300 weekly after the wrap has been installed.

    You are required to deposit the start-up check into your bank account and when it clears you will deduct your first week pay and send the balance to the installer. This is to afford mutual relationship between you and the installer. The balance which you are required to send to the installer is the payment for the Auto-Wrap installation, maintenance and removal.

    As soon as they receive the funds, they will contact you to schedule appointment on when to come over to your location or preferred location to have the wrap installed.

    In view of this, please confirm the following details;

    How long do you intend to carry the advertisement on your car?

    One (1) month, two (2) months or three (3) months?

    Do you use your car everyday?

    NB: An inspection agent will come over to your location from time to time to monitor if you still have the wrap on your car for the period which you stated.

    If you are willing to get started, please reply this email stating that. “I understand the payment process and I am willing to proceed.

    The Cricket Wireless Company is asking all vehicle and bike owners with valid driver's license and above 18 years of age to advertise with their car for Cricket Wireless. You will be receiving $300 weekly as the payment for allowing Cricket Wireless wrap your Vehicle or Bike. It is very easy and simple, no application fees is required. Here's the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: Cricket Wireless seek people, regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for "Cricket Wireless" plastered on your Vehicle/Bike. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as "auto wraps,"that almost seem to be painted on the Vehicle/Bike, and which will cover any portion of your Vehicle/Bike'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 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 3 - 4 weeks and maximum is 12 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 expires or at any time you want to terminate deal. We will be responsible for installation and removal of the wrap.

    Does it cover the Vehicle/Bike ?

    No, the decal is only installed on the Vehicle trunk and doors.

    You will be compensated with $300 per week which is essentially a "rental"payment for letting our company use the space and no fee is required from you. Cricket Wireless shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an upfront payment of $300 in form of check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car. It is very easy and simple, no application fees required.

    I can't believe that people can be so vicious. This scam is still actively being pushed. Unfortunately, I thought it was real until looking at your informative article. The TX# used 201-719-4316 supposedly belonging to Zella James, contact rep. They are still passing bogus checks supposedly drawn from Florida Auto Auction. Not familiar with any of these entities other than Cricket wireless.

    cricket wireless Recruitment Agent

    Hello,

    I have just reviewed all submitted forms for the auto wrap advertisement and found yours inclusive. Thank you for choosing to advertise Cricket wireless on your vehicle. I am glad to inform you that you have been selected as one of our promoters and about to forward all information to our sponsors so that your fist paycheck would be mailed and deliver to you as soon as possible. I will be sure to provide you the tracking number and delivery date as soon as that is made available to me. You are therefore advised to check your email daily for our regular updates. Meanwhile, I have the directive to divulge the following information to you;

    As for your assignment, there is no specific amount of certain mileage required of you. All we need is a daily driver as we just need to ensure your vehicle/bike is moving once the decals has been wrapped. The traveling distance may be from home to work daily although longer distance tends to be of more advantage. By so doing, we would be able to achieve our objectives through lots of exposure and awareness this would create. The auto wraps tend to be colorful eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it's a form of advertisement with a captive audience, meaning people who are stuck in traffic can't avoid seeing the wrapped vehicle alongside them.

    Also, be informed that we have our professional installers we normally use, these are people we can guarantee and be sure no damage(s) will be done to your vehicle during installation and removal of the decals. They have been working with us for more than 10 years now. They work round the states to install the decals based on our assignment and one of them will be allocated to you who will be coming down to your address for the installation of the decals. So to say, you do not have to go anywhere to get your vehicle wrapped, your vehicle will be wrapped at your given address or your preferred location.

    The payment plan as discussed in the application form will begin with a start-up check of $2,950.00 which will be issued by one of our sponsors and mailed to your address. The amount covers your first week pay($400) and the installer's charges. You are required to deposit the start-up check into your bank account and when it clears, you will deduct your first week pay and send the balance to the installer. This is to afford mutual relationship between you and the installer. The balance which you are required to send to the installer is the payment for the Auto-Wrap installation, maintenance and removal as well as the cost of the transportation of the installer to and fro your address. Your subsequent paychecks would be for $400 only which will be mailed to your address weekly after the wrap has been installed.

    In conclusion, should you have any question, please do not hesitate to email me here. Once again, thank you for choosing to partner with us. We hope to get a lot of exposure from you. If you are willing to get started, please reply this email stating that “I understand the aforementioned process and I am willing to proceed”. Also, include your name and full mailing address as you want the check addressed to you for confirmation and final approval.

    Warmest Regards,

    John West.

    I have to say that it sound very enticing and who couldn't use extra cash these days. Yes at first I sent in my email address to find out more information about the offer, I must say again it sounds great.

    Then I googled cricket car wrapping advertising and my I say the truth was told, it was a scam I emailed them back and said that I was no longer interested in the promotion.

    Also, be informed that we have our professional installers we normally use, these are people we can guarantee and be sure no damage(s) will be done to your vehicle during installation and removal of the decals. They have been working with us for more than 10 years now. They work round the states to install the decals based on our assignment and one of them will be allocated to you who will be coming down to your address for the installation of the decals. So to say, you do not have to go anywhere to get your vehicle wrapped, your vehicle will be wrapped at your given address or your preferred location.

    The payment plan as discussed in the application form will begin with a start-up check of $2,950.00 which will be issued by one of our sponsors and mailed to your address. The amount covers your first week pay($400) and the installer's charges. You are required to deposit the start-up check into your bank account and when it clears, you will deduct your first week pay and send the balance to the installer. This is to afford mutual relationship between you and the installer. The balance which you are required to send to the installer is the payment for the Auto-Wrap installation, maintenance and removal as well as the cost of the transportation of the installer to and fro your address. Your subsequent paychecks would be for $400 only which will be mailed to your address weekly after the wrap has been installed.

    In conclusion, should you have any question, please do not hesitate to email me here. Once again, thank you for choosing to partner with us. We hope to get a lot of exposure from you. If you are willing to get started, please reply this email stating that “I understand the aforementioned process and I am willing to proceed”. Also, include your name and full mailing address as you want the check addressed to you for confirmation and final approval.

    Warmest Regards,

    John West.

    I received a check in the mail yesterday for 3600.00.. No letter, no explanation.

    Today, I got this e mail.

    “payment will be deliver to you today. Here is the USPS tracking number

    for the confirmation....420272659405512 699350106689655. Amount on the

    check is $3600.

    You are to take the Check to your Bank to have it deposit for 24hours

    till tomorrow/next business working day, when cash would be readily

    available. Once the payment clear into your account. You will deduct

    $500 for your first week upfront payment.

    Then the rest of $3100 need

    to be send to the Graphic Artist Agent who is going to come and

    install the LOGO on your car.

    Kindly Confirm to us you receive this

    Email. so that the Graphic Artist agent information to send the rest

    of the money too Can be send to you immediately, Confirm to us you

    receive this Email and understand it “

    I worked for a bank for 50 years. NO bank releases holds on funds in 24 hours. NEVER. Yes, if you are a good customer, they may go ahead and cash it, but when it bounces, they are going to come calling you for the money.

    And no legitimate company sends you a check and then expects you to send part of it back. This is the oldest scam in the books! I have seen more people lose their money than I can count with schemes like this. Please don’t be one of them.

    My response to this joker was if he wanted his check back, he could pick it up at the police depart!

    The Cricket Wireless Company is asking all vehicle and bike owners with valid driver's license and above 18 years of age to advertise with their car for Cricket Wireless. You will be receiving $300 weekly as the payment for allowing Cricket Wireless wrap your Vehicle or Bike. It is very easy and simple, no application fees is required. Here's the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: Cricket Wireless seek people, regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for "Cricket Wireless" plastered on your Vehicle/Bike. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as "auto wraps,"that almost seem to be painted on the Vehicle/Bike, and which will cover any portion of your Vehicle/Bike'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 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 3 - 4 weeks and maximum is 12 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 expires or at any time you want to terminate deal. We will be responsible for installation and removal of the wrap.

    Does it cover the Vehicle/Bike ?

    No, the decal is only installed on the Vehicle trunk and doors.

    You will be compensated with $300 per week which is essentially a "rental"payment for letting our company use the space and no fee is required from you. Cricket Wireless shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an upfront payment of $300 in form of check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car. It is very easy and simple, no application fees required.

    Here is another scam, please do not follow the instructions in it:

    "This is nothing but good news! I am glad to inform you that your first paycheck for the Auto Wrap Advertisement has finally been mailed out to you through USPS, which will be delivered to your address today Saturday 3/24/2018 as indicated on USPS website or latest tomorrow. Here is the tracking number for confirmation; . You can visit www.usps.com to monitor the delivery. The check was made for $2978.56 which covers your first week pay($400) as well as the cost of installing the decals on your vehicle for the said advertisement. As soon as the check is delivered to your address, you are to take it to your bank and have it deposited into your account for processing.

    You can also deposit the check on-line through your bank mobile application or via Automated Teller Machine(ATM). After the check has been deposited, deduct your $400 and withdraw the excess amount of $2,578 in cash as soon as funds are available. These would be sent to the graphic artist(installer) who will come down to your address to wrap your vehicle. The cost of installation of the decals, transportation of the installer and his team to and fro your address, as well as the cost of removing the decals at the end of this promotion are what the excess funds will cater for.

    I am an investigative reporter with CBS Orlando- a viewer who happens to be a math teacher received a check from an account to appeared to be from the city of Palestine, Texas. The teacher was offered $400 a week to allow his car to be wrapped with a cricket wireless advertisement.

    Of course, most of the funds ($1950), were to be wired to a mystery man in WISCONSIN to develop the shrink wrap design. We have advised cricket wireless and the city administration. Another con-game to steal from honest people.

    Received a text to my cell phone from email address delilaegu@gmail.com stating "Cricket will pay u if you give us a space on your car to put STICKER for an advert. Send me your email to receive details. Thanks"

    I am not responding to this as I know for a fact that they wouldn't want their product advertised on a 2002 Ford Focus with dents on all four sides.

    I responded to an ad from "Cricket" the middle of February and received a follow-up email the following day telling me I had been accepted. I knew it was a scam when the email had no official company info on it but I decided to play along anyway.

    The email stated I was to cash a check for $3,980.89, keep $500 and they would tell me where to take the money. The check I received was from Deljo Heating and Cooling along with a note to email them information, which I never did. After telling them via text I had deposited the check and my bank put a hold on the funds.

    I got an email the next day telling me the check had "totally cleared" through their account. What they didn't know, was the check was on my desk and I had already notified Cricket Wireless legal department as well as my local law enforcement.

    I received a check for Cricket Car Wrap, with absolutely no instructions! I believe this is a scam! There is a man texting me with ridiculous questions and things to do! Do I call the insurance company regarding this? Do I just rip up the check? I Will not deposit this and end up being responsible for the amount of the bad check! What should I do. There is a fraudulent Dept. phone number listed for this insurance co!

      Report it to the police or destroy the check.
