Autozone Advertising on Car Scam - Fake Autowrapping Campaign

Autozone Advertising on Car Scam - Fake Autowrapping Campaign

Online scammers are contacting potential victims pretending to be Autozone, asking them if they want to wrap their cars in an advertising campaign that pays $500 per week. The scammers will ask their potential victims for their names and addresses. They will then send them a check. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to cash the check, take their share of the money, and wire the rest to a graphic designer.

But, the fake check will bounce. The wired money will actually go to the scammers behind this fraudulent scheme and the victims will then be left to pay back the bank the wired amount and other charges associated with the processing of the check. Whenever you receive offers that are too good to be true, please do your research before participating, even if the offers seem legitimate.

    Here is the AutoZone SCAM cellphone text I RECEIVED from "ranaaj068@gmail.com" yesterday:

    "AUTOZONE are currently seeking to employ individual’s Nationwide, Regular citizens. The car wraping is just a sticker that will be placed on your side door only and it's all with regards to the position of our ad on your Vehicle for at least 3months. It is effectively removable and won't harm your paint. It's low maintenance work utilizing your vehicle to promote and pass through your typical route(from home, to school, work and so on). You will get compensated by means of Certified check ($600 weekly). If interested text us back with Your Full Name: Full street Address ( apt #), city, state,Zip code and email We will get in touch with you when we get the information/data needed. Thanks"

    Obviously they didn't even correctly spell the word "wrapping"; and did not use proper spacing for words/punctuation. Hope this helps others who are targeted by this SCAMMER CON-ARTIST.

    If you Google search 'ranaajO68' the search returns location info: "Seven Mile Beach in Austrailia" and "Seven Mile Beach in Cayman Islands /Grand Caymans":

    I haven’t even agreed and they sent me a check anyway. Now they are texting to see if I got the check. Interesting part is the check is from a company I don’t know with a MS address but the sender info on the envelope is a CA address. Wonder what would happen if I deposit the check and don’t respond to them? Other than it might bounce do they have any recourse

  • July 21, 2022 at 12:30 PM by an anonymous user from: Hebron, Indiana, United States

    why would they need check number and your name since both are on check they sent to you?

    received check today they asking for me to send all but 550 on the 2950$ check to the expert dealer told them will contact them once check clears not been to bank will cash once the wrap is installed on car.

    I have received the same letter, I got the check yesterday, with a paper having me text the check number amount and name. I took and deposited the check, it cleared the first part, see how long it makes it before goes bad. My question to you guys is what happens when they follow through with their part of the deal? Is it no longer a scam? If they never have me use my money or ask for any? How is that a scam? Too good to be true? Maybe but I'd the checks good and they pay you the 500 per week, how is this a scam then? I have screenshots of the text messages, never asked for money yet.

  • July 14, 2022 at 7:22 PM by an anonymous user from: Hagerstown, Maryland, United States

    This is what they sent to me:

    “Hello, we are very sorry for getting back to you late, Just wanna let you know that we received your info you submitted for the ( AUTOZONE ) advertisement program.

    An expert, who will meet you, has been allocated to install the logo on your vehicle.

    You will therefore receive your first week payment alongside the money that will be paid to the national car detailer(expert) in the mail via UNITED STATE POSTAL SERVICE (USPS).

    So when you get the check in the mail, you will take out your first week pay of $500 plus extra $50 for your running around and you will give the rest to the detailer..

    Keep us updated as soon as you receive the check via USPS OK?”

    Total Scam!

      I got this and then a couple days later the check came. They keep texting me asking me to cash the check.

      I asked them where am I supposed to take my car for this car wrap. they refuse to answer me. I still have the check. I told them I will not cash the check until they tell me where I am getting my car done. The check says Arizona Restaurant Supply INC and that its drawn from Alliance Bank of Arizona. Haha how stupid do they think we are? I looked up both companies, they are legit. But a car wrap company would not be using a food place for advertising. lol

    I received an AutoZone advertising agency Contract with a check for $4,950.30. I could not believe it. So I knew it has to be a scam. My offer at first was $800 week. So now I will rip up the check. For sure.

    I received from merton3567@gmail.com a DRIVE WE PAY! Invitation to advertise by simply driving my vehicle. I would earn $500 per week for 3 months just for allowing the ad to be placed on my car. I would get a $500 up front payment prior to ad being placed. What BS. I will be filing a report with FCC.

    I recieved one with compass bank from helen keller foundation.

    Mistake 1

    They texted me to send them pic of deposit.

    Mistake 2

    I texted back...I'll be asking bank to verify as this is fraud.

    Never heard from them again.

    Wanted me to pay tech $4000 and I keep $600. Of my real money..lol

    Unfortunately some people are not keen on signs of fraud.

    If too good to be true.. is!

    Always take to bank and let them verify but company name was big give away if advertising for autozone paying from helen keller foundation. Really. Lol
