Cassel Promotions/Productions, (not sure which) placed a comment on someone else's post that they would pay $300.00 per wk to allow vehicle to be wrapped in advertisement. I went and gave them my name, physical address, e-mail address, make and model of my car and cell number on approx 1/27/2016. On 1/30/2016 there was a text from Cassel telling me to ck my e-mail. E-mail from Joel Padilla stated I was chosen to advertise and would be receiving a check by mail on Monday, Feb 1, 2016.
E-mail asked if I have a valid drivers license, how many miles do I drive, how long would I leave "Advert" on my vehicle.
Cassel is an actual car wrap business located in Washington State.
No phone numbers were given. No mention of a contract. The e-mail did not seem professional and contained a few typos, misspellings and grammar errors.
That is the best info I can recall at this time. I did save the e-mail, but cannot recall exactly where on FB the original ad was. Only that it was in the comment section of a post I was reading.

Scammers for Cassel Promotions Car Wrap

  • Monetary Loss: $1750
I saw an ad on my Facebook page. Answered the ad. Received an e-mail stating that they pay $300/wk if you agree to have your car wrapped with an advertisement. Sent us a check. We deposited the check. Instructed to keep $400. They supposedly pay for the wire cost so they were sent $1200. No one called or scheduled to come. Spent many days before sending any money to see if this was a scam. All seemed legitimate. Went to report this to the Ohio police & the detective basically hollered at me! Obviously no one has responded to my e-mails. We will not be able to pay our bills now :-(

The advert 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 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 12 months and the minimum you can participate is 1 month.

  • Monetary Loss: $1
I responded to an email ad to advertise an energy drink called Redrain on my vehicle. Mr. John Ma emailed me back seeking information about my vehicle to which I responded. He informed me that I would be paid $300 dollars a week for my services in the form of a check, in addition there would also be monies in the check for the wrap advertiser. I would keep the $300 and send the balance of the check to the wrap advertiser; which amounted to$1650. I received the check on Saturday Feb 6, 2016 and deposited it on Monday Feb 8, 2016. I reported the check deposited to Mr. John Ma and was instructed to withdraw $1650 and send a cashiers check to the account of Sherry Barrow with an account/routing and bank name and number. when I checked with my bank they informed me that their security department said the check was a fake and any money withdrawn would be my responsibility. I have attempted to send copies of the emails I received however, your system would not accept them as is.

Car wrap scam

  • Monetary Loss: $1950.00
In January I received an email offering me a job worth 500 dollars a week, if I let Red Energy Drink put their car wrap on my vehicle. I had an option of 3 ,6 or 9 months. I've seen car wraps before and it sound promising. I agreed. I found it odd we never talked over the phone, it was always by email . They would send me a check,, I would cash it, keep my 500, ,and then give the 'expert ' the remaining balance in order for him to come out and put the car wrap on my car. The check came via USPS and I cashed the check but no one ever came out once I told them the money got lost somehow. You see, I'm on crutches and failed to secure the money in my pocket.It somehow fell out,and once I told [email protected] that, we stopped texting. But then someone sent me a text from 530-732-0029 saying they were getting nervous about the money not coming.They too stopped texting once I told them the money got lost and they should re issue a check. I fell stupid because come to find out the check was fraudulent. Now I have to repay Cash 1.
