Adsmart Outdoor Advertising - Adsworldavdertn Outdooradvert's
They send me this email :Dear Applicant, Thank you for your swift response and your willingness to work with us and we are sorry for the late response , Wrap advertising is the marketing practice of completely or partially covering (wrapping) a vehicle in an advertisement or livery, thus turning it into a mobile billboard. This can be achieved by simply painting the vehicle surface, but it is becoming more common today to use large vinyl sheets as decals. These can be removed with relative ease, making it much less expensive to change from one advertisement to another. Vehicles with large, flat surfaces, such as buses and light-rail carriages, are fairly easy to work with, though smaller cars with curved surfaces can also be wrapped in this manner. Wrap advertising is available to anybody irrespective of the vehicle you drive. We are currently seeking to employ individual's world wide. How would you like to make money by simply driving your car or banner wrapped for Rockstar | Hype/REDBULL Energy Drink® How it works?

What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy? Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colorful, eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it's a form of advertising with a captive audience,meaning people who are stuck in traffic can't avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. This program will last for 3 months and the minimum you can participate is a month. You will be compensated with $350 per week which is essentially a "rental"payment for letting our company use the space no fee is required from you. Advance adsworld Outdoor Advertising Inc. shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an up front payment of $350 inform of Money Orders via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car. to this effect you are advise to check your email regularly to get update as to know when your upfront payment will arrive along with Graphic Artist address. 1) You will receive a check. As soon as you receive the Check, you will cash the check for the decal wrapping on your car, deduct $350 as your up-front payment plus $100 as run around fee to follow instructions that will given to you after the payment has been delivered to you. An additional email will be sent to you on instructions to follow with the remainder of the payment after it has been delivered to you . All you need is to confirm the acceptance and understanding of this email.I received the cashier's check from them as you see in the picture but I got cold feet because they asking for send two money orders blank to an agent in Florida , I look at the address and is are house that been sold lol so be careful with this scam

Neither of you can write English well. Getting instructions with typos should be a major clue.

Playing the game as we speak........good news, caught it right away. Checks in the bank waiting for conformation in about two weeks. The old adage " if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is."

Adsmart SCAM!!!!!!!!!

The company does not exist!!!!!!! It is a SCAM....DO NOT DEPOSIT ANY CHECKS YOU GET FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!!!! I contacted the Manufacturer of the products that they were supposedly representing and they said WE DO NOT DO THAT! It is a scam, I googled the company name and it does not exist! People need to stop stealing and do honest work......my family is struggling as it is and the last thing we or anyone else needs is to be ripped off by some *** scam! The police never do anything about these people and since they keep getting away with it they will keep profiting from poor people who fall for their scams.

I cannot be 100% certain but there's a very good possibility that I know where the business and or scam originated. If anyone has any more information would be greatly appreciated or if you have been scammed I would like to hear about it.

Problems with payment

Adsmart outdoor advertising scam . Not real !!!

Agreed to have them place a Monster Energy Drink ad on my vehicle and get paid weekly. They sent me a money order for $900 . Deposit or cash it at my bank and keep $350 as initial payment . The remaining balance ($550) to be sent via Western Union to a person named Zina Stephanie Pierre in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida . The $900 never ended up clearing from my bank so I've been robbed a total of $611 with my banks service fees. I am so pissed but yet feel so *** . Now I'm nearly broke but they don't care and their is probably nothing I can do about it but take up the £¢€?$@.

I've recently got an email from Rockstar | Hype/REDBULL Energy Drink®

Advance adsworld Outdoor Advertising Inc.

saying almost the same thing. They didn't say anything about having to send money back to them.

They just said they would send me an money order.

Which if true I wouldn't cash at my bank. I'd go to Walmart or somewhere to check cashing place and pay the fee

#1305111

I got 1 too. From Dave Dennison, $950 moneygram, I called moneygram before I put it in the bank and moneygram said it was fake....so, why would they do this?

How does it benefit them?

I've sent them nothing. Somebody please explain...skhandtkh@***.com

#1262253

I deposited it in my account what should I do

#1043650

I've been burned by this *** before and was initially excited. but ended up $4000 in debt to the bank and they closed my accnt, even though I spent none of it.

Still hit my account as overdrawn and then fraud. Dont these people have better things than to prey on the broke and naive?

Glad you guys are here to check this stuff against, thanks, because the car wrap sounded good then immidiatley fishey when they ask for money back

#818039

Yes i though,,although a little weird Id' do it for 350 a week but many people getcha with the Ill send you money you cash it with good money and send it back to them, this sort of scam is getting really old, suck they took your money,

#813872

Might I remind you that this is a modified version of the "Nigerian 719(?) scam! Where they want you to send some money to get "really large amounts" of money to US!

And of course they offer you millions of dollars in commision for this "work"! And again you use "Western Union". Where the money leaves, (and is never seen again!)_ At best you may recieve a box of old useless rags" for your commision too!

Red Bull, and Red Rain scams just speed up the system a little, by sending you this "valueable check", and all you have to do is send about 2/3 back,- after cashing it in your acount-- "And you recieve $300 cash right off"--- NOT!! Guess what you only lose $600 + beccuse you did not spend this $300 (hopefully)!

#813868

I got one last week that is similar, - except that they used "Red Rain Energy Drink".. It "registered" rather quickly when I read that they would send me check, and I was to send balance to another address (they claim graphics person)..

And I get to keep $300.00 for my first months payment!

Never - NEVER cash a check in your bank, and then forward from your account to somebody else! And never trust Western Union with anything that you can not be sure of recipient!

I may send "fast money" to a family member,- "with both ends watching to see that it arrives ok"! And immediate phone call as soon as sent, as swell as phone call from other end to make sure it got there!

You have about a 99% chance of getting clipped with any of these "projects"!!

#777214

why didnt you just cash the money order???

#755846

I dont think its funny at all. I almost did the same thing but i went to the police department first then to a check cashing place inwhich they called the MoneyGram and alerted them that it was a fake.Im soooooo glad I did not cash it because I could have went to jail for fraud.

Who could I blame?

No one but myself. These people that are sending these things are fake people with fake ids.

#737691

Hey this just happened to us. The bank said we have to pay them back this money.

Unbeleivable!!!!

SAME Name and everything.. Wish we saw this before it happened.
