Rockstar Energy Drink Car Wrap Scam

There is a scam email being circulated that offers cash for car owners who will wrap their car with the RockStar Energy Drink logo.

This is a scam. Rockstar does not offer the general public cash for wrapping their cars.
The contact information for Rockstar is listed below, so you may confirm this.

ROCKSTAR, Inc.
PO Box 27740
Las Vegas, NV 89126 USA
Email: info@rockstar69.com

I have been contacted by Kyle Lewis about the advertisement which pays $350 dollars weekly. Upon further examination of the email address, it says that it is @gmail.com Unfortunately I have already sent this person much personal information. Is this a scam? Should I immediately go to the police with all of this information in addition to what I have sent this person? The email I was sent reads as follows:

Thanks for your response,Sorry for getting back to you late...You and
your car have been chosen for the advert placement, it is very easy
and simple, no application fees required. This is how it works; the
basic premise of the "paid to drive concept "ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK" is
to seek people regular citizens and professional drivers and all car
owners, to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with
a big advert for "ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK" plastered on their cars. 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.What does the company gain from this type
of ad strategy? Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to
be colorful and eye-catching and attract 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 car to get
their attention busy instead of looking at the red light . 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
and fifty dollars per Week ($350/week), which is essentially a
"rental" payment for letting our company use your car. ROCKSTAR ENERGY
DRINK shall provide experts that will handle the advert placing on
your car, these experts have been tested and confirmed perfect for the
job in order not to leave any damage on your car after three(3)
months. You will receive an upfront payment inform of certified check
for accepting to carry this advert on your car and you will be the one
paying the expert to build up a mutual relationship between both of
you, as he will be coming to you for placing of the ad on your car
after we have agreed with all terms and conditions . He will also be
the one to remove the ad after 3 months when the advert is over. so
the payment you will be sending to him will cover placing and removing
of the ad on your car. Other weekly payments will also come in the
form of certified checks and will be delivered at your address
provided weekly . There willbe no fee for gas since you are not
driving to anywhere else apartfrom your daily routine.The following
information will be needed from you;

Full Name:
Age:
Occupation:
Make of car/ year:
Address:(NOT PO Box)
city:
State:
Zip code:
Do you have a driver's license?
Phone Number(s) mobile and home :
Email Address:

We shall be contacting you as soon as we receive these information,
ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK looks forward to working with you.

Hiring Manager

After sending them all of this information regarding myself, I received a second email which reads as follows:


Kyle Lewis
2:50 AM (23 hours ago)

to me
This is to acknowledge the receipt of your details, please answer the
questions below and re-confirm your details.
How long do you intend to carry the advert on your car? One(1) month,
two(2) months or three(3) months?

I just had the same exact situation happen to me by a Brian Smith from a gmail account. He is also acting as Hiring Manager Rockstar. I actually deposited the check and then found out it was a scam. I contacted my bank to inform them of the scam , and hopefully keep my account safe, just in case.

Wow! i just deposited a check for $1950.00 into my bank account today from a kyle lewis! i feel really stupid!! b

I am soo stupid that I already went through a similar scam, where i was the person getting all the mailing info and chk amounts, had to go buy official business checks , envelopes, ink for my printer, it put me out almost three hundo, and im unemployed, thats why i did in first place, then as i was sending, to all diff states, I actually came across a friend i was sending a check to, i called her and the scam she responded to said she would be getting a check that a family that lived in us was out of country but needed supplies and was willing to pay 800 for my friend to go buy the supplies, the 800 would be included in the check, the checking account is very much real, but was closed. These people are getting wealthy acct numbers and getting away with the first few b4 the bank catches on. So I lost out on all the money i spent and the 80 plus hours of work i did, I am on the verge of losing my home, and this just made things worse. my friend saw an add about rockstar energy drink, decal your car and get 350 a week, I thought that was great, I knew rockstar was real and saw other decals from other companies, but i got the check in the mail today and it looks just like the ones i seen b4, so i gogled it and its a scam also...i wish i could get my hands on these little assholes!!

Yes, the email I got in my hotmail account came from Brian Smith. Here is what he said about the deal:
"You will be compensated with $300.00 per week which is essentially a "rental"payment for letting our company use the space no fee is required from you. ROCKSTAR Energy Drink® shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an upfront payment of $300.00 inform of check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car.
It is very easy and simple no application fees required. Get back with the following details if you are interested in this offer."

I didn't reply after that b/c I thought scam and was right about that after I googled it!

Just got it myself...pretty pissed that seemed like a good gig! Red flag for me was the Western Union part where I had to transfer part of the check, etc. The scammers should be smarter than that. Also, for these scams the email addresses always change and are not from the company which is an immediate flag.

I was also contacted by a Byron Vu with a gmail address. It had all the same text as the above letters. I had a gut feeling and decided to check this out as there are too many scams going on and unfortunately many unemployed needy people.
Rock Star Energy Drink should at least post something to the effect that this is a fraud.

SCAM...FORWARD TO ALL FRIENDS: Received as request form Rockstar Energy Drink to "wrap" my car with their advertisement. My son has done it with other companies with everything fine. Received a check was told to cash it and send it on to the advertising company that would make my "wrap" and come and install it. Well waited for the check to clear and then sent the money on, but for some reason the check bounced, and therefore cleaned my account out, and to make it worse received a check Wednesday asking me to do the same thing as "it cost more than estimated." Deposited check but didn't cash it out. Called Rockstar Energy directly last night and had a nasty conversation with the person who answered. Her response, You've been scammed, you aren't out any money.. How'd she figure that.. And she added "this is under investigation by the FBI.. so contacted FBI last night..

SCAM - Just an FYI for others

Me too. David Christian, about a week ago. I replyed just now, but felt unease and searched 'jmt1153@hotmail.com' into google.ca, and was sent to two pages listing people who were scammed by the same 'great deal'. Thanks all of you .

Anonymous said...

Me, too David Cristian - replyed a couple of times, but when he said was sending money for the detailer - that is when the red flag went up. So I 'binged' RockStar Energy Carwrap and it put 'scam' behind it for me...They always say when it sounds too good to be true it probably is too good to be true. Didn't get a reply when I told them they should pay the detailer direct - I didn't want to wire money for them. Thanks for the info from all of you. Guess I just have to keep working no free meals.

Thanks to all who found out it was a scam, I asked for a website and more info, never heard back from anyone. It's so sad that these people prey on others. It's ok, God is watching you, and you will pay for your wrong doings.

Hello guys,

Not sure what all you guys out there are complaining about but here is my feedback to you all:

Received in an email a few weeks ago from mrmacero@hotmail.com and he gave me the same spheel about being paid for driving around with ROCKSTAR decals on my car. I thought it was a scam, did some internet searches on it and decided to play along with it. Well guess what guys, he did as he promised and sent me in a nice check! But not just for $300 but for $900. I was given the address of a local decal place to go get my car all dressed up and it was done in 4.5 hours and it looked so friggen cool! The guys at the decal place were so professional and even paid my lunch! And to boot, l got the receptionists phone number and banged her the very next day!! So it has been now 2.5 months and no problems...so why are all you guys out there crying the blues and complaining...just go crawl back into bed and call your MAMA I would say...but for me...they are 100% authentic and trusting. So cheers out there bros...

Brian: nice try. This is a total bullshit scam, and I'm guessing by you raving about it you must be the one or one of the people involved. If you are, I've got news for you bud, I'm a very pissed of son of a woman you guys tried to scam. I have already contacted the attorney general, The Federal Trade Commision, and also the Detroit Police, and the FBI. Also don't think I will just give up, I've got plenty of time and I'm gonna have fun with whom ever is responsible for this.

Jim Jackson said...

Nice try there Brian old boy,I'm guessing by the way you are sticking up for these shit bags you must be involved. We have contacted Wells Fargo, the university and also the federal authorities. We have the check in hand and also a copy with the local district attorney. You my friend are now being investigated, and don't think I will just give up. I have plenty of time and energy. I did get back to you on behalf of my mother the other day though, apparently you didn't read what I sent you.
My advice to you is to crawl back under what ever shit house you came from and hide. As I said in my last email to you, you better hope that I never find out where you are.
Have a great day, I'm gonna have fun with you.

Got the same come on from a David Christian who texted me "please advise the status of the check payment that was sent you for the car wrap ad or legal action will be taken against you." I texted him back "your so-called business is a scam and legal action is being taken against you as we speak...better run for cover." I guess he was upset because I was going to make sure funds cleared before I sent him one dime! and Brian Hannon; you've got to be the world's biggest moron, seriously!

Responded to Craigslist ad to susanmaj3@gmail.com. Sure I got a check - from Stanford University. Unfortunately they got the bank's address wrong on the check. When I called Stanford, I was advised that this was a scam. It is their account number but not their check numbers. Sent an email to Rockstar and they responded that this was a scam. The big tip-off is when they send you too much money and want you to wire the rest to someone else. Why not send two checks or send the "detailer" who is in a different state than you are the larger check and have him send you your cut.

Glad I checked this out before depositing the check. I would have cleared because it was a good account number but when Stanford verified their bank statement I would have been out a lot of money.

They are playing with fire when the use the US Mail service and the internet to promote their scam.

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 living in USA. Who will like to make money by simply driving your car or banner wrapped for NOS Energy Drink®.

How it works?

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?

Just checked my mail box this morning after receiving threatening letters from these same emails. Telling me if I don't cash the check to remember that they have all my information. I think i'm going to just hold on to the check and do a further investigation because this us not right. I knew it was a scam when they emailed me and told me there would be a check in the mail. How is that possible and I haven't even started working yet. CRAZY

I received numerous e-mails from different people due to signing up for Christmas assistance for my children. It amazes me how some can take such a bad situation such as my children NOT HAVING CHRISTMAS this year and take total advantage. How sad. Really wish I could see these people face to face. They offered me $450 a week and I just received another e-mail stating they were going to send me an extra $80 for them taking so long to get the check to me. Hahahahahaha. I am NOT AMUSED. Thanks for screwing my children over scammers.

I also got this exact same scam in the mail a few days ago. the guy said his name is Robert Kennedy. I told him I took it to my bank but they would only deposit until it clears. (but I didn't ) he sent me a text message saying his bank told him the check was cleared and for me to get the fund and send it to the expert. I know for a fact it takes 7-10 business days for a check to clear. I was so hoping this was a not a scam. Luckily I was smart and didn't try and cash it first.

They must have a broke folks list. I just deposited the check ($1,980) and came home to Google Rockstar Energy Drink and before I finished typing, scam came up and sent me to this page. I am so glad you guys shared your experience. I was going to have a hard time sending the greater amount and keeping the lesser. My bank suggested I don't touch the money, it will go away on it's own

Big red flag went up when they sent an "overage"... The man also signs his name as "Daniel"; but the picture on his gmail account says "Nicholas M". What a bunch of douche bags.

Hello ,

I hope this message finds you well ! and am sorry for getting back to you this late , am sure you can imagine how hectic job could be at the beginning of the year well am writing to confirm the delivery of the payment being sent to you Via USPS here is the tracking number 9470101699320005969141.Right now,my Account Personnel who was directed to make the payment to you had just informed me that total amount of $2390 was sent to you instead of the $400 for the one week wages, as he (Account Personnel) had thought the total was to be sent to you, hereby swooping with that of the Graphic Artist.The over payment is meant to cover the cost of designing your car by the graphic artist .

The(Financial adviser And Account Personnel) all seems so worried about your return of the money but i had assured them that you will definitely treat it according to their directives when you might have gotten the payment. Hope all is well? I have already inform the Graphic Artist that the money is in save hand and will get to them, All i need from you right now is to have me notified when you receive the payment so that further directives on how to return the overage might be given



Sincerely

Found an ad on Craigslist and it had a cell phone I had to text and I have texting this person on and on they told me the same thing it was crazy that they want me to pay the installer by wire transfer.

I am an IT Professional with enough e-mail knowledge to find out they are using spoofed e-mail addresses and hijacked mail servers. Nothing that could be blocked would stop them. Only defense I can see is awareness.

I to received a email and a check for $1,978.47 with similar instructions to cash the check and give part to a detailer. The check was obviously bogus they had the check number and routing number in the wrong position on the check. I am contacting the FBI today and hopefully stop this shit.
