Imposter Offering Fake “Drive While Advertising” Job Opportunities:
Individuals offered fraudulent employment opportunities by persons posing as KELLY SCOTT MADISON
UPDATE: It has come to our attention that as of April 2020, this scam is still active. Beware of any entity impersonating a Kelly Scott Madison employee promising money in exchange for wrapping your car with an ad.
An imposter offering fake “Drive While Advertising” opportunities is exploiting the reputation and goodwill of Kelly Scott Madison (“KSM”) by falsely posing as representative of Kelly Scott Madison and KSM to further an illegal scam. KSM and its representatives do not have any involvement with this scam and urge recipients of this scam to beware.
Individuals identifying themselves as employees of “Kelly Scott Madison” and “KSM Media Marketing” have been posting and emailing phony job listings to job boards and to certain targeted individuals. The email references KSM as a media marketing agency and includes the business address of KSM.
The email often comes from an individual named “Trey” or “Trey Spencer” claiming to be an employee of KSM and trying to offer an employment opportunity, “Drive While Advertising.” The targeted individuals may be asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the fake opportunity. The fraudster attempts to have the targeted individual go about their normal routine with the logo of “Irish Spring” on their car or truck that is required for the job.
Once again, KSM does not have any involvement with this “Drive While Advertising” scam. Further, KSM does not employ anyone by the name of “Trey Spencer” and does not offer any opportunities similar to “Drive While Advertising.” This scam commonly employs the identity of other reputable marketing agencies and is specifically warned by the Federal Trade Commission. Further information on this scam can be found here.
KSM recommends that you immediately notify Google, law enforcement, and governmental authorities and urge anyone who has been targeted by this scam to do the same.
