The Newmont Elko Warehouse Car Wrap Scam

I received a check from a Newmont Elko Warehouse for $2,550.50, supposedly to be paid to put a wrap on my vehicle for Rush Energy Drink for $500 a week. Then I received an email that the funds have been cleared and to contact them that the check has been deposited. The next step in this scam is to send $2,000 to the person that will wrap my vehicle, which the bank will say the check is a fake and presto, I'm out of $2,550.50.

The Newmont Elko Warehouse Car Wrap Scam

I did not deposit the fake check and reported it to the Federal Trades Commission. My problem is it seems this Newmont Elko Warehouse scam will go on and on with no justice to stop these people and people will continue to get hurt. Scammers have scammed people out of millions of dollars and it's time to bring this to an end and bring them to justice, and make these scammers accountable for their actions. I am hoping with enough complaints to the FTC this can be accomplished.

    I got a text about a paid to drive car wrap for Starbucks. same deal. $500/week to have a vinyl decal on my car. I'm usually really wary and smart about these kinds of scams, but I know that car wraps are real and at the time I was a single mom going to school with 5 kids, trrying to hold down a job and dealing with ax ex dragging me in and out of court over lowering child support. The need for better income clouded my judgement. Thankfully we didn't get to the financial part, but now this guy has my name,address,phone number,driver's license number etc. I don't know what to do from here.

    Hi, they tried to scam me through a craigslist posting. When a check came for 4500, far more than the item I was selling, I realized something was wrong. After a week or so I got another check this time from ELKO warehouse. Both checks look like they came form the Navy Federal Credit Union

  • June 28, 2020 at 10:33 PM by an anonymous user from: Robstown, Texas, United States

    I inquired about a car wrap program to make a little extra $$, and received a cashier's check for $3650.00 with instructions to deposit the check in my account within 24 hours and follow the instructions provided. Decided to check the web to see if anyone else had had any experience with this company based in Nevada. So glad I did. If something seems to good to be true, it probably is. The BBB or the FBI need to be involved in matters such as these and lock up these crooks and scammers.

    Had a guy going by the name Jim Caldwell, ph#:1-352-616-4776. He sent a UPS letter to me with a check, claiming to be a money order plus to pay Futch’s Marine, 100 NE 23rd St, Gainesville, FL a portion. This check came from Newmont Elko Warehouse in Nevada. I will not attempt to cash this check because he is trying to scam me. Evil people will answer to GOD.

    Yeah, it’s a scam for sure.

    I received the same thing, also for supposedly wrapping a Coors company decal on my car. I have kept the check

    I received a payroll check from Bar Louie O'Hare in Chicago IL in the amount of 1929.99. I was supposedly going to have an auto wrap for Starbucks paying $500.00 per week for 12 weeks. It was sent from Newmont Elko Warehouse #200 in Elko NV via UPS. They instructed me to deposit it all, keep my $529.99 and give the rest to the person doing the wrap. I have notified Starbucks, Bar Louie O'Hare and the FTC.

    I received a cashier's check for $2495 dollars. I was supposed to deposit it in the bank and $500 would be for me and $1995 would go to the people that wrapped my car. I called the Greater Nevada Credit Union to check on the check and the check was good but not made out to me. They thanked me for calling them as it is a scam and not the first time for them. Told me to tear up the check which I did. I thanked them for saving my butt because I would have been out $2495 dollars.

    I received a check for $2950 today via UPS. I had been contacted by text for car decal for BABY RUTH to earn $500 per week for 10 weeks of advertising. I was instructed to deposit the check and then take my $500 dollars and give the remainder to whomever put the decals on my car. The contact is at 972-534-4652. The package was sent from Newmont Elko Warehouse, 4218 Ruby Vista Drive #200,Elko NV 89801. The check is drawn on the First Community Bank with a Remitter name of Alexandra Derosa.

    I presume this to be a scam.

    • April 16, 2020 at 11:35 AM by info

      Yes, it is a scam.

  • April 15, 2020 at 12:19 PM by an anonymous user from: Pensacola, Florida, United States

    I received a check for $2400 today via UPS. I had been contacted by text and email for this same car wrap scam for IZZE SPARKLING JUICE to earn $400 per week for three months of advertising. Contact was John West at at 812-974-0323. Glad I found this site about the scam, which I knew it was too good to be true.

  • April 6, 2020 at 4:40 PM by an anonymous user from: Wappingers Falls, New York, United States

    Weird. We just received a $2200 check mailed from this same company. The check was from Far West Contractors. We contacted them (Far West) and ripped up the check. There was no letter or explanation attached to the check. Just a check. Beware!

  • March 28, 2020 at 1:54 PM by an anonymous user from: Jackson Heights, New York, United States

    I received a check for 2380.55. I placed an ad on craigslist to be a Math Tutor. A lady answered my ad from Oregon. I live in NYC. She told me her son was coming to NYC and wanted tutoring for him. Sounds dandy. I get this check drawn from a different name and the envelope came from a Newmont Elko Warehouse in Grapevine, Texas. Part of the money was to go to the Nanny and me for tutoring charges. I have not deposited the check as of yet and I am suspicious.

    • March 28, 2020 at 2:15 PM by info

      It appears to be a scam. If someone asks you to change a check and take part of the money and give the rest to someone else, it more than likely a scam. Ask them to send a check to the Nanny. And, always wait for a check to clear before doing anything with the money. That way, you won't be in debt paying back the money you didn't spend.

    I received a check for $2450, checked the company on the check deposit it. Everything seems to be legit. Man was I fooled

  • March 26, 2020 at 11:26 AM by an anonymous user from: Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, United States

    Thanks to an online search, I confirmed that my "too good to be true" offer from a Craigslist posting was a scam. Who would pay $2100 for a $350 used snowblower, which, of course, included a premium for holding the unit and supposed shipping costs to deliver. Supposedly a 'Michael Kayle' would. Other details are the same as others' posts, including the wording on the emails, a check received from Newmont Elko Warehouse location, with check to me drawn on TD bank. I obviously am not cashing it, but am in the process of being in touch with the bank and UPS to report the issue. Anything else we should all be doing? Am awaiting contact from the "buyer" to inquire why I haven't cashed the check, but they'll quickly find out why! I presume the intent is to acquire some kind of info about one's personal bank account, giving them access for fund withdrawals.

    "This is a scammer from the Elko Warehouse that I read about from your blog post. I was contacted by them for an item I was selling on the Poshmark app.

    Good News,

    Pls Read All The :- INSTRUCTION :- As you were aware that the payment would be sent in an excess amount to cover the shipping fee of the item, The rest of the money meant for the pick up of your item and some other Goods purchase around your location and the mover will be coming for them..

    I just got a confirmation from FedEx that Check have been processed and it will deliver to you today, Here is the tracking # for confirmation of the payment ( 1Z 426 E93 01 4473 8148 ) from UPS Priority Overnight ..

    Once you receive the check, Take it down to your bank and get it deposited, And let me know when your bank says it will get cleared, I mean when your bank says the money will be available into your account, Once it clears your bank deduct your money for the item as we agreed and extra $70 for holding it for me. Send the remaining funds to my Shipper through ( Zelle Or Cash App ), So that they will be able to come for the pickup immediately they gets the money. Once you get the money sent, Pls get back to me with the screenshot of the successful transactions for confirmation. Pls also email me the best time you want the movers to come for the pick up and item location..


    Received via email.

    They are still at it

    Selling a boat on Craigslist (LA). A person calling himself Joshua said he wanted boat, was unable to see it, but would buy it sight unseen. I agreed that if he paid for it he could have boat. Check arrived Friday for $3,000 above asking price using Newman Elko address from a bank called Lakeland Bank out of New Jersey.

    At this point I was highly suspicious and found this site. I then texted him and he said the extra money was a moving fund and that everything was good and to deposit check.

    Anyone interested in a $6,00 check

  • March 20, 2020 at 1:00 PM by an anonymous user from: Martinsville, Virginia, United States

    The check was for 2800. I didn't call or text any of the telephone numbers provided, so I don't know what they were wanting me to do. The check was drawn off of Malaga Bank.

  • March 16, 2020 at 10:57 AM by an anonymous user from: Avon, Indiana, United States

    I also received a check for more than the sales price of my item. I had requested separate payment payable to me and the movers directly but that isn't what I received. They also didn't respond to any of my direct requests for information.

    I will not be depositing the check and have relisted my item.

    • March 23, 2020 at 11:40 AM by an anonymous user from: Bel Air, Maryland, United States

      I received a check for more than the sales price of my item. I only asked for what I was selling the item for (425).they sent me 1,980 and the rest for shipping. can't get in touch with anybody that's named on the check..won't be trying to cash this check.

  • March 10, 2020 at 11:06 AM by an anonymous user from: Kansas City, Kansas, United States

    I received a check from this same address from a armslists item. I knew it was FAKE all along, and just wanted them to spend the $$ on overnight freight.

  • January 28, 2020 at 10:08 AM by an anonymous user from: Shreveport, Louisiana, United States

    They will text your phone( 1 563-289-7374), when you call the number the lady voice say please say your name and Google will try to connect you. Scam for real, call the BBB.

  • January 26, 2020 at 10:48 PM by an anonymous user from: College Park, Georgia, United States
