My Strike Force Peeps, it's time we had a talk.
There will always be evil-doers that try to steal your money. One popular way is someone might try to convince you that Strike Force will pay you money to have your car wrapped.
We do not pay anyone to have a car wrapped or display any other type of advertising.
This has been a very popular scam for many years. In a way, I'm almost proud that Strike Force is popular enough that a scammer would try to use our name in their scheme. But don't fall for it.
In this scam, a bad actor will send you a check, even a very good looking copy of a cashier's check. Then they tell you to wire transfer a portion to (what they tell you is) a car wrap place, and keep the rest for yourself.
A few days later, you will find that the check is fake, the money is being deducted from your account, and you are on the hook for the wire transfer.
Luckily, I think any true Strike Force fan is smart enough to see through the scam.
Be wary of accepting checks from people you don't know. Never transfer money to people you don't know.
Other types of scams involve buying gift cards and giving the scammer the code, sending money orders, etc. Just DON'T send money to someone you don't know.
