Miss Young

Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following "work-at-home" email. Be aware of these offers. In most of these offers the real deal is that they send you a false check (that may be honoured in the first place) and you return 90% of it by Western Union. When the check after a while bounces, you have lost all the money you sent.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

Hello There ,

Gulf Oil has been a recognized brand in energy since 1901. Currently Gulf Oil LP is headquartered in Framingham, Massachusetts with operations in 27 states and the Caribbean. Among Gulf Oil LP activities is the distribution of quality motor fuels, both gasoline and diesel, to over 2,000 branded outlets as well as 1,000 private label retail outlets operated by major chain retailers. We also supply heating oil, lubricants, and are a major provider of bio-fuels. Gulf LP owns and operates 12 proprietary terminals as well as supplies wholesale product through 75 other terminals in its 27 state footprint. Gulf is involved in sourcing and blending of motor fuels and is one of the nation’s largest users of ethanol in its blending activities. Gulf owns and dispatches through a fleet of almost 200 trucks.

While Gulf Oil is primarily today dealing in petroleum based products the company is firmly committed to developing alternate energy sources for both transport as well as other energy demand sectors such as commercial, industrial and residential uses. The company currently offers electricity to residential customers in Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts with more states planned.Gulf has begun to invest in developing transport and distribution capability using natural gas based transportation fuels. Our corporate focus in energy is to develop least cost solutions for customers that are environmentally responsible and reliable sources. The development of a diverse, domestic, and stable source of energy for all demand sectors including transport is our primary focus.

Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots, and billboards to tell you how good their products are. At Gulf Oil® we choose none of the above. Instead, we support car Wrap advertising. We back athletes so they can make a career out of their passion. We promote and sponsor concert tours, so our favorite bands can visit your home town.

We are currently seeking to employ individuals worldwide, to help make our products known worldwide by simply branding your car with a Gulf Oil® Ad. It sure sounds cool driving your car with the Gulf Oil® ad and make money out of it for doing this.

How it works

Here’s the basic premise of the "paid to drive" concept: Gulf Oil® seeks people - regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine and work as they usually do, only with a big advert for "Gulf Oil® " 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 an initial 3 months and the minimum you can participate is 1 month.

You will be compensated with $400 per week which is essentially a "rental" payment for letting our company use the space. No fee is required from you, Gulf Oil® shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. Adequate arrangements will be made as regards payment prior to making the ad visible on your car.

It is very easy and simple with no application fees required ,we look forward to reading from you soon. If the terms of the above works with you, do provide the information below:

Full Street Address
City,State,Zip Code:
Cell Phone Number:

We shall be contacting you as soon as we receive this information and it is imperative that you check your emails frequently for regular updates and necessary information as this is the frequent mode of communication we use.

Many Thanks,
