It has come to our attention that Landor is being exploited to further a fraudulent scam.
Landor does not engage in car-wrap advertising campaigns, and we are not affiliated with this scam in any way.
Individuals who identify themselves as “Cassandra Easterly,” “Raymond,” or “Mark Spencer,” among others, are posing as employees of “Landor Associates” and offering car-wrap advertising opportunities via email and job boards, targeting especially colleges and universities.
Typically, fraudsters ask targeted people to wrap their cars in stickers to advertise an event or a major brand in exchange for a weekly salary (e.g., $250). Targets are sent a much larger payment (e.g., $4,000) as a cashier’s check and then asked to wire the bulk of the money to a car-wrap company and keep a percentage for their salary. The cashier’s check is not legitimate, but by the time that comes to light, the targets have lost their own money. Some victims report having money illegally withdrawn from their bank accounts after depositing the phony cashier’s check.
Common signs that an offer is a scam: spelling errors in the email; improper use of company trademarks; and the fraudster’s use of free email accounts such as AOL, Outlook, Yahoo, and Gmail.
Landor is pursuing all necessary steps to notify appropriate law enforcement and governmental authorities about this scam. If you have been scammed, contact your bank and local law enforcement authorities.
