Starbucks and ALDI say they are not behind the promotions offering easy money to customers.
The VERIFY team is looking at a few claims that sound too good to be true. One of them is an email saying Starbucks will pay you to drive around town with your car wrapped in coffee ads.
The message looks like a Starbucks promotional campaign. The offer says you will be “paid $ 500 per week plus an additional $ 30 for gasoline to have your car wrapped in Starbucks advertising.”
Details indicate that a check for $ 1,930 will be sent to cover the decal fee and the first week payment. He orders the recipient to deposit the check. Then, after payment is made, withdraw $ 530 for wages and fuel. The balance will be sent to the automotive ad installer.
Catherine asked us to check “Is this legit or fake?” “
Our source for this is Starbucks.
The company confirms, “This is not a valid Starbucks offer.”
So we can verify, the email is fake.
A Facebook post claiming that ALDI grocery stores give the first 50 people to comment on “ALDI” $ 750 has gone viral. The creator claims the deal “is 100% real” and includes a photo of what appear to be smiling employees in the aisles.
Susan asked us to check if it’s real.
It turns out that there are no winners.
A spokesperson responded on behalf of ALDI saying, “We can confirm that the Facebook post is not genuine and does not come from the official ALDI US account.
Thus, we can verify that this offer is also false.
Many social media posts with retail offers and sweepstakes are not real. As always, the companies named in the posts encourage customers to visit their websites for legitimate offers.
