Sorry this happened to you. But thank you for posting this scam. I was about to make the same mistake. I guess if it's to good to be true, it usually is.

I received the same email and a fedex check from Byron Vu and actually got the check and instructions in my hand for $1,910.
The check says it is from Integrity Title at 220 2nd Avenue East, Alexandria, MN and the bank is Bremer Bank, 720 Broadway, Alexandria, MN

The instructions say to Western Union all but $300 to James Delao, 1201 Ct.St, Pueblo, CO 81002 and explains that the head office of the graphic artist is in CO. Once I acknowledge that I sent the money, a local person will come by to wrap my car.

Have you guys reported this to the DOJ and Internet Fraud unit?

www.justice.gov/criminal/fraud/internet/

These people need to be caught so they dont do this to anyone else. They may be forced to pay restitution to those of you that lost money. I dont think Rockstar can do anything for you.

JOB OPENING :ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK(R) CAR WRAPS!

Hello,

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 individuals world wide. How would you like to make money by simply driving your car or

banner wrapped for ROCKSTAR Energy Drink®

How it works?
Here's the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: ROCKSTAR Energy Drink® seeks people -- regular citizens,

professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for "ROCKSTAR Energy

Drink®" plastered on your car. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as "auto wraps,"that almost seem to be

painted on the vehicle, and which will cover any portion of your car's exterior surface.

Don't Have a Car?
If you don't have a car, you can also participate if you have a bike
(I couldn't paste it all cause the site won't let me)

They send you a check for payment. They ask that you deposit the check and send some money on to the installer (they provide wire info) and you keep the rest. What happens is you deposit it the bank gives you the money before the check is processed. You remove that money and pay the designer.
The check then bounces and your bank takes that money back from your account and leads to you being ripped off for the money you wired to the designer/installer.

Ok here's the scenario.

You play his game and get him to send you a check.
You deposit it into your bank account.
The bank accepts the check and puts the money in your account.
The bank processes the check and finds it's fake and they take that money back from your account.

If you don't send the money to this guy then you might get hit with a bank fee for bouncing a check I'm not sure though.

However if during this process you take any of that money out of the account then the bank will still take it back by putting your account into the negative.

Ginge,

If you do not withdraw any of that money and send it on to them then you should only get hit with a bounced check fee. If you did take the money out then your bank is going to hold you liable for that amount of money that you withdrew from the account based on the check deposit.

I hope you really did not take the money out and send it on to them for your sake, that's a lot of money to lose..

OMG! A man named DAVID CHRISTIAN from Rockstar Energy has been contacting me ovmonth now offering to advertise their decal for $300 weekly & woud be paid t out his amount upfront (too good to be true) & to deposit into my account take out my fee & send the remaining $2350 to H. Darlene in Atl. Ga. 30331. I lived there before. So I called CHASE BANK to verify it myself in which they did confirm that its a business account but fund amount cant be verified if Im not a customer of theirs. Walmart couldnt verify it either. I emailed him & got no response yet. I cant believe tgat he did all that to get nothing. No one lost out but truly hate that scammers is offering jobs to ppl who may need it. Slobs!!

I read a good piece of advice on uShip.com's blog: to ignore any email correspondence that does not come from a company's official domain name. I noticed in this thread that this David Christian person was sending emails from @gmail.com or @hotmail.com. A legitimate email from Rockstar would have come from their domain @rockstarenergy.com or something similar.

That blog entry can be found here: blog.uship.com/us/2013/01/how-to-avoid-job-application-fraud/

Be careful out there everybody!

He just sent me a text today stating that he was apologizing for the delay and that I would hear from him soon. This just stinks to high heaven.

They had me fulled through three emails. Then I received the one about the check and the auto wrapper. Oh that sent off a red light. I cash no checks for anybody. I am not BOFA. I mean everything from the central location of where the email originated to the actual phone number all pointed to this leading to a legitimate business. NOT!!! Like your mother always said.

Got the same letter as that but from Gregory O'Neil as the hiring manager and the graphic designer was some Carolyn Winn in Gainsville, GA

I had the same letter and and unwittingly fell for it, what can I do, should the bank seek legal action as it was directed at duping them and I was used like a pawn.. this JUST happened today and want to report it and what to know what SHOULD I do and how to do it.. THIS HAS TO STOP, as it is involving businesses not just individuals and why should we have to pay for it in the end? really, isn't the bank responsible to clear check funds themselves??

What should I do????? can I do anything now?? or is it toooo late :(

Jonathan,

It is not your banks responsibility to cover this. It is your account and you are responsible for the checks you deposit. You are not the middle man or pawn you are the one being targeted because you are held responsible for any overdrafts to your account. It's sad that people are being duped by this guy hopefully he gets caught soon. I would report it to your bank IMMEDIATELY maybe they can stop the processing of the check. The other thing you could do if you have already deposited the check is to not take any funds out from that check prior to it bouncing. All you will be liable for at that point is a bounced check fee probably somewhere around $35-$50 depending on your bank. If you have already mailed the money to the designer you are out of luck and will be held liable for those funds.

Hopefully you haven't sent on the money yet.

If you get a check delivered to you just don't cash it, I had it delivered but never cashed it after the company told me it was a fraud, the guy tried to threaten me saying he'd get me arrested for taking his money. I knew he couldn't do that cause I never do anything with the check. He never bothered me after awhile.
Lesson to be learned! Never fall for something that sounds too good to be true. Or you need to research things before getting into it. Just get jobs where you live never online.

They tried to get me too, but as soon as I got the email about them sending the check I knew it was a scam. They sent me a check for $3000 via the US Postal Service (can we say mail fraud anyone???). My 1st weeks pay was supposed to be $400 & send the rest to an individual in North Carolina. The check was from a Florida Utility company on Wachovia Bank (which is now Wells Fargo so not sure why they didn't get the right Bank name). I have reported this to both the US Postal service and the FBI. According to the tracking number on my letter it was mailed from Puerto Rico.

Thank you for your response back concerning the Rock-star
Car Advertisement, your car has been chosen for the advertisement. It
is very easy and simple, no application fees required, this is how it
works; the basic premise of the "paid to drive concept" Rock-star
Energy Drink" seeks people, regular citizens,professional drivers, and
all car owners above eighteen(18) years old,to go about their normal
routine as they usually do, only with an
advertisement for "Rock-star Energy Drink" plastered on their cars.
The advertisements are typically vinyl decals, also known as "auto
wraps"that almost seem to be painted on the vehicle, and which will
cover some portion of your car's exterior surface.For sure the owner
of the vehicle will see the art before it is applied.
What does the company gain from this type of advertisement
strategy?Lots of exposure and awareness; the auto wraps tend to be
colorful,eye-catching and attracts lots of attention. Plus, it is a
form of advertising with a captive audience, meaning people who are
stuck in traffic can not take their eyes off the ad vehicle. This
program will last for three(3) months and the minimum period you can
participate is one(1) month.
You will be compensated with three hundred dollars per Week
($300/week), which is essentially a "rental" payment for letting our
company use your car. Rock-star
Energy Drink shall provide Detailers that will handle the advert
placement on your car, these Professional Detailers have been tested
and confirmed perfect for the job in order not to leave any damage on
your car after the end of the program.
There will be no fee for gas since you are not driving to anywhere
else apart from your daily routine.Please provide the following

They send you a check for your first week "rental" plus a large additional amount. They want you to deposit the check, then take out all but your portion and send the rest via western union to the "detailer". What will happen is the check will appear to clear, until the company/bank the check is actually written on discovers that the check is not valid, then they will report the check as fraudulent, so your bank will reverse the deposit. If you did what the scammers wanted you to do you are now out whatever the check was for plus bounced check fees from your bank. They sent me a check for $3000, I was supposed to keep $400 & send the rest to the detailer. If I had I would have been out more than $3000, this works on people who are gullible and desperate for money.

I just deposited the check this morning they have changed their names now it's a Laura Martinez with a seanbry1982@gmail.com. Now it is $450.00 that they are supposed to give you. When I got the fedex package it state target corporation 7000 target pkwy n Brooklyn park mn. When I looked up that address it comes up to there but then I went on FedEx and it came from a completely different address. I didn't take any of the money out cause my bank has a policy that the check has to clear first. I am a single grandmother with 3 grandchildren that I have to take care of and they wanted to rip me off and take food from my grandbabies are you kidding me. I hope they catch these pieces of crap

I seen the job ad on craigs list 2 days ago, sent them an email inquiring about this, they havent emailed me back yet. So I thought about it and decided to look this company up and found this site informing about the scam. Checked back at craigs list and sure enough the ad is gone. Anyway i appreciate finding this information so i know up front if they do email me back. Although ive seen other scams like this, I am not that gullible lol

I received almost the exact same email in response to a Craigslist advertisement I posted. This was the second email promising to pay me to promote the Rockstar Energy Drink. Its from

Thanks for your response. It is very easy and simple, no application fees required, Here’s the basic premise of the “paid to drive”
concept: Rockstar Energy Drink seeks people, regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually
do, only with a big advert for “Rockstar Energy Drink” plastered on your car. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as “auto
wraps,”that almost seem to be painted on the vehicle, and which will cover any portion of your car’s exterior surface.

Don’t Have a Car? If you don’t have a car, you can also participate if you have a bike.

What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy? Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colourful 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.

What is the Contract Duration?
Once the wrap has been installed, minimum term is 2 weeks and maximum is 12 weeks.

Would the wrap/decal damage the paint of my car? The decal doesn’t damage the paint of car and will be removed by our representative once the contract expires or at anytime you want to unsubscribe. We will be responsible for installation and removal of the wrap.

Does it cover the whole car? No, the decal is only installed in the car trunk and doors.

etc...

Walmart will not cash these checks so have fun trying. If you did get someone to cash this check you would be knowingly committing fraud and would deserve some jail time.

I was not implying that you were going to do it. I was saying that anyone who did would be knowingly committing fraud. I was never implying that you were going to or judging you at all.
