Old-fashioned car wrap scams on the rise again! Get paid $950 a week by offering your cars? That sound too-good-to-be-true. And suspicious.

Posing as famous companies like Lay’s, scammers send you online forms and invite you to join their car wrap program, telling you that you can get well-paid if you agree to carry advertisement on your car. If you take the bait, you will have to provide your personal information, including driver’s license number and social security numbers. Scammers can use these credentials for identity thefts. Be careful!
