Dear Sir/Madam, Would you wrap your car in an Advertiser for
$400 Weekly? If you have got a car, truck or a bike you are qualified. The wrap doesn’t damage paint. Reply if interested Please visit website for more information.I may not have time to respond to your comment here.
When i Went to the site i seen this:
Here’s the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: Avery Dennison seeks people – regular citizens, not only professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for " Avery Dennison " 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. What does the company get out of 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’s a form of advertising with a captive audience, meaning people who are stuck in traffic can’t avoid seeing the wrapped car beside them.
This program will last for 3 months and the minimum period you can participate is 1 month You will be compensated with a $400 (Four hundred dollars per Week), which is essentially a "rental" payment for letting our company use the space. Avery Dennison shall provide experts that would handle the advert placement on your car. You will receive your 1st week payment of $400 (Four hundred dollars) in form of check for accepting to carry this advert on you.
We shall be contacting you as soon as we receive these information.
Note: Our company wraps will only be on your side doors and will not damage your car paint when it is removed at the end of your contract. Avery Dennison looks forward to working with you.
I filled out the form and got an immediate email that said:

I received the check same day (attached image)
I thought it was a lil fishy that i couldn’t just go cash the check anywhere and that I had to pay the wrapping artist. so I figured they wanted me to wire them money and it’d bounce in my account and i’d owe my bank a ton. So then i contacted BBB. I can send this check (voided of coarse because it still has my name on it) to you if you would like it.
