    It’s a SCAM. I’ve got the paperwork along with a check made out to another person. They asked for my year and color of my car, phone, address. This scam parallels all the above examples. Sad that frauds and scammers are so prevalent. Ty Hand

    This is the actual email I received. If you read carefully it has several misspelled words. A legitimate company would never allow literature or correspondence to go out into the public with spelling errors.They pay people to proof. Notice there is no name of the company that will wrap your car, no phone number to contact the person who is paying you and the salutation is so generic. Thee were my first clues.

    The check is written in the name of a legitimate company drawn on a legitimate bank. However, if you call them they will know nothing about a check or company. Also you can check the routing number of any bank and this routing number is not legitimate. My advice is to question anything that sound good and offers to put money in your pocket for doing very little. Never deposit a check from anyone you do not know.


    This is to notify you that a Payment of $2320 was send to you will cover the Decal / Graphic-Expert expenses and your first week payment for "BUD LIGHT DRINK WRAP'' Campaign today via FEDEX with the Tracking number below which would be delivered to you soon.

Once the payment clears into your account, Withdraw the Money deduct $450 as your weekly wages and the rest $1870 will be sent to the installation expert to come Place the advert on your Car. This will enhance making necessary arrangement for the supplies needed for the wrap placement.
