    Just received notice/application from Budweiser(claiming to be) for car wrap,paying $500 a week!Decided to investigate 1st,& glad I did!Apparantly a SCAM!

    • July 22, 2020 at 8:45 PM by an anonymous user from: Avon, Connecticut, United States

      Yes, definately a SCAM ...

      Sent as an iPhone message:

      Had the same scam tonight. Said they'd give me $500 to place a small Budweiser sticker on my vehicle. Message was also sent to 10 similar or adjoining cellular telephone numbers. You can see them when you click on the "info" area above the telephone number it is suggested that it was sent from.

      The telephone number they are using may even have been "hijacked" to hide their own true telephone number by a sophisticated electronic device that hides the originator's phone number.

      It's almost 9:30pm EST and sending *hit like this past 9pm is furthermore illegal. SCAM SCAM SCAM ... DO NOT RESPOND TO THE MESSAGE. DO NOT CLICK ON THE MESSAGE. DO NOT SEND A "STOP" REQUEST. The scammers will they know that you may be gullible enough to answer their request and therefore KNOW that your cellular telephone number is an active phone number. That information alone is enough for the scammer to SELL a list of "answered" phone messages.

      It's been a few minutes already several people have sent the word "STOP" EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS NO info within the text message to do that.

    Just got this text message, seemed to good to be true, glad that I checked! Thanks for the information and glad that you didn't get scammed!

    I would like to share my experience with a scam I received via text. The message read if you would like to be a part of an advertising campaign and get paid 500.00 a week for a car wrap advertisement of the Budweiser co. Please respond. So I did. And I only gave my address to have them send me more information about it. And about a month later they sent me a priority mail letter with a check for 3,650.00 so then the letter says to deposit the check then contact them via email at web.post.@fringeselvedges.com and dinkdin993 @outlook.com. Moreover, if I do it within the first 24hrs if receiving it will also apply a 200.00 extra Amazon gift card. They then go on to say make sure I text them at (205) 754-9131 and send them a photo of my deposit slip for accounting purposes and to make sure I do not expose any personal info on that deposit slip such as your account info blacken out. So I believe they do that to make them seem honest. However if you look at the check its printed on the Check will say it’s from MIT Bank and the bank address says 700 Technology Rd, in Cambridge, MA. ...this check looks authentic, then they ask that you take 500.00 for your pay then take the rest and use it for the car wrap guys to install the car wrap. However, as I do a lot of things I researched the names and phone numbers on the letter and got nothing then I tried to look up the emails on the letter and received nothing on the backgrounds of this company called FS Car Wrap which is on the letterhead. Needless to say things didn’t add up, so I googled advertising for Budweiser campaigns and noticed this scam alert. I’m an lucky to have done my homework, let this be a warning that no one gets scammed by these low life’s that rob poor defenseless people. DONT GET SCAMMED!

    "Getting emails from Owen McEvan owen.millerlite@gmail.com with instructions about a check for installing the wrap and first paycheck. Made him send me a contact# which was 7793335701. I then started talking to a Colin at that number who sounded Asian although he tried to mask his voice by mumbling. They keep asking about a check that is supposed to be delivered by UPS. "

  • October 4, 2019 at 5:29 PM by an anonymous user from: San Francisco, California, United States

    OK I received a message saying that I will be getting paid to wrap my car with the Budweiser lagor and they told me that I will be getting a check for doing this and will be paid wkly the same amount.

    So is this really a scam cause they said I should get the check next week was supposed to get it last week but it never came and they said that UPS was running behind so Saturday Im supposed to get the tracking number and the beginning of the week I'll get the check.

    So What do I need to do when I get the check is there anyway you can get who is behind this cause I don't work so I can't be responsible for a scam I just need to know what to do with all of this? ☹️🙁☹️☹️☹️

    • October 4, 2019 at 8:25 PM by info

    I do feel like a fool spending the money in my head even before I get it and yes I had thought about it there is no Budweiser drink Anheuser-Busch owns all of it so any official checks would be from Anheuser-Busch not from Budweiser drink just saying

    I received an invitation to wrap my car for Budweiser. They have since sent me a check for my “salary” and the money for me to send to their designer to wrap my car. Odd that they would have me send the money.

    I do not know what to do with these emails and the check if they are fraudulent. Please advise as to appropriate procedure.

    • September 12, 2018 at 12:10 PM by info

      Destroy the checks or report to the police.
