Central Islip, NY (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
On February 25, nationwide truck wraps manufacturer JMR Graphics releases a statement commenting on a Fox 28 article discussing a popular car wrapping scam in Indiana.
According to Fox 28, a new scam is spreading around Michigan City, Ind. and the Michigan City Police are advising residents to keep an eye out. The scam involves a Craigslist post offering money to people willing to wrap their cars in a vinyl advertisement promoting “Red Bull,” a popular energy drink.
The post, reports Fox 28, requires people to pay $1,000 to a wrapping company using Western Union with the promise of receiving a check worth $1600. The company that posted the ad told scam victims that they would be compensated $1,000 and paid $600 as a profit for allowing the ads on their car. Victims of the scam would instead receive a bounced check than the promised amount according to Fox 28.
Representative TJ Pannell from JMR Graphics, a nationwide truck wraps manufacturer, said if you are not meeting with vehicle wrap producers directly, it’s probably a bad idea to get involved. “Vehicle wrapping is a hands on process and any legitimate business knows how important it is to be in constant contact with the customer,” he said. “Here at JMR, we know that people want to be involved in the process and want to know they are getting what they paid for. We help our clients by catering to their specifications. We’re big on quality products and excellent customer service.”
Pannell said it’s a shame that people are being scammed out of money because vehicle wrapping can be a very lucrative investment. “It’s really an unfortunate scam because investing in car wraps are a good way to make money and promote a brand,” he said. “However, it’s also an investment that needs to be legitimized. A contract should be drawn before anyone thinks about wrapping personal vehicles for money.”
According to Fox 28, Michigan City Police are unsure if the Craigslist ad scammers are involved with the real Red Bull as the investigation continues.
