Car Wrap Job Scam: How It Works

United States, Canada, Australia, Great Britain – the car wrap advertising scam occurs now all over the world. Be careful.

Imagine this: while looking for ways to make extra money, you receive an email from a company offering the opportunity to make $300 a week, if you have your car wrapped in a well-known brand’s logo. “Our world-class partners such as Coca-Cola, Monster Energy, Dr. Pepper Advertising, XS Energy, Johnny Walker, and Budweiser will generously pay prospective clients like you”, the message says. How does the scam work?


Watch How The Scam Works:

Watch the video below to see the Car Wrapping Advertising scam exposed:

It would be great to get paid to advertise on your car but beware. The scammers who send this message also post the same offer on sites like Craigslist, Oodle, or Gumtree, create well-designed advertisements, and even contact people who submit their resumes online hunting for jobs.

The offer sounds good, especially since you have the option of removing the wrapped sticker after the number of months you select. If you accept the offer, the scammers will then send a check for a large amount of money, according to the length of time you want to be the mobile advertiser.

The instructions for cashing the check indicate that a certain portion of the money is to be kept as your payment and the rest is to be sent via wire transfer to the company who will supposedly wrap your vehicle. After wiring the money, you’ll find out that the original check was a fake and the transaction bounced. Now your bank is after you for thousands of dollars.

How To Avoid The Car Wrap Advertising Scam:

No major brand would hire just anybody to wrap their cars with advertising. It’s great to get paid to advertise on your car, but corporations are very careful about their image and typically have huge marketing departments within. Be very careful when you receive this email, as the message might be presented in a very professional manner.

The scammers steal images from websites belonging to reputable companies that do professional car wrapping and make you believe it’s their business. Delete the email, not every online job opportunity that comes your way is real.

Here is a series of images from a conversation one of our readers had with a scammer this week. The cheque was branded with Wells Fargo, but in your case could be any other bank.

I too have received a few of these, and they are obv a scam, but since I am currently looking for side-hustles to get me through these next six months of school… I thought why not. Every good scam has to come from some sort of validity right lol. Sure enough, there are Marketing & Advertising Agencies/Firms, that do work with their Clients, of whom these scammers claim to represent, and depending on where you live, there could be opportunities available to you.
