Here is what has been reported to be a scam in a thread at antifraudintl.org, and I'm adding it here at Rip-off Report so more folks will see it.

You get an email that resembles this wording:

Subject: [Bulk] Advertising for Red Bull (Energy Drink)

Hello,

We are currently seeking to employ individual's world wide. How would you like to make money by simply driving your car advertising for RED BULL.

How it works? Here's the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: RED BULL seeks people -- regular citizens,professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for "RED BULL" 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, 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 1 month.

You will be compensated with $600 per week which is essentially a "rental"payment for letting our company use the space no fee is required from you RED BULL shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car.

Here is another resource to help the public to avoid this scam:

The learning point: scammers hope you'll accept a certified check with a condition that you send money to others; after you send money via Western Union, the certified check will bounce, and you will be charged the amount you sent plus bank fees. Teach others what you've learned.
