    Very Easy and Simple with No Application fees required : Here's how It works - The basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept coca cola seeks people -- regular citizens, not professional drivers -- to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for " coca *cola" 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*colourful*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 and can't avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. This program will last for 3 months and the minimum period you can participate is 1 month.
    * *
    You will be compensated with a $300(three hundred dollars per Week),which is essentially a "rental" payment for letting our company use the space.Coca-Cola shall provide Experts that would handle the advert placing on your car.You will receive an up front payment of $300 (three hundred dollars) inform of check for accepting to carry this advert on your car and other weekly payments will also come in the form of checks and delivered at your address weekly.

    It may be legitimate, but is that really worth driving around with your entire car labeled as a product?

    I'd do it since I rarely drive and as long as the car works I'll drive it. (and if it wasn't a scam of course)

    iJohn, I think the promotors of scams like the wrap, are reliant on there being a Wally born every minute.

    Assuming it's real, how would they know you actually put on the ad/decal on your car?

    I have heard of this being done before. No real way to know if it's a scam unless you find someone who is already doing it and ask them.
