It has been brought to our attention that the Red Bull Brand has been used to commit certain type of frauds. The main target of these frauds is to obtain personal data from the contacted persons (so-called phishing) in order to reuse this data for later illegal actions (identity theft). The different scams can be described as follows:
4. Car advertisement scam. The fraudsters pretend to make the victims believe that they would get money if they are prepared to place Red Bull advertising on their private cars and are asked to submit personal date first. This is part of a larger identity theft and phishing attack. Red Bull does not do such advertising at all and never asks third parties to brand their private cars.
Red Bull is very concerned that its name and brand is used for fraudulent activities and will do its best to stop any of these kinds of activities.
Please do not respond to any of the above mentioned fraudulent communications but instead inform your local police and inform us via email@example.com. Please use the same web address if you have any fraud-related questions.
