Alright So I see this add on myspace for "pimpin your ride" So I thought oh wait I need to pimp my old car ,1993 mazda protoge, so it will sell better So I fillout hte application and do all taht good stuff and then after I hit submit I realize that they are not affiliated with MTV or anyhting liek that. So I go to redo my application so I could get my tC sponsored and get some free goodies and what not. The thing is they charge $89 bucks for some reason . So I e-mailed them saying like I don't understand why I need to pay 89 dollars and not gaurentee a sponsorship. So the guy e-mails me back saying oh I read your application and I like it, just fill this one out again and put a dummy credit card number starting with a z. So I did and he e-mails me back:

Ericson,

After reviewing you application, I have approved you for sponsorship. I wanted to make sure you want to take this opportunity. I also wanted to tell you that we currently do not have any sponsors that work with horsepower upgrades. Everything else, from body kits to window tinting, we do have a company for. Right now I have you down for at least 1 full sponsorship, and 1 quasi sponsorship. Let me explain the difference between the two.

Full - This is where a company will provide you with products, no expense to you.
Quasi - This is where a company turns you down, and we work to get you back in. They provide you with a discounted price on their products.

In both cases you get the benefit of being sponsored and getting the hottest products sometimes before they hit the market.
Shipping and Installation will always be at your cost, unless otherwise noted by one of our partners.
Please contact me back when you get this and hopefully we can proceed.

If you do not have a credit card you wish to use, you can send  in a Money order or Check for the amount of 89.00 along with your Name, Phone Number, and E-Mail Address to:
 
Carsponsorships.com
Attn:  LOCK ME IN, Dave!

Fort Myers, FL 33907

 
 
Happy Holidays from:

Sales Manager

Anyway I e-mailed him back saying like what is the 89 bucks for and he hasn't responded yet so I'll update you guys on that later.

Anyway I just wanted to know if you guys think this is fake or what? There is no engine or performance sponsors its mainly audio and styling. but yeah It would be nice to have if it is free. What do you guys think? My mom thinks its a scam and I'm leaning towards it is also but I want more opinions! Thanks guys.

I hate to be that guy, but this one has been discussed multiple times on this site. It is a scam, unless your intention is to get a bunch of stickers for your $89.

Check box to agree to our terms and conditions  Submitting your application with us is simple, if we don't get you sponsored, you don't pay, There's no monthly fees, hidden costs or sponsor obligations. When you submit your application, some credit card companies may show a hold for $89. This is not a charge. Once reviewed and a sponsorship is negotiated and secured for you we will then process your credit card for $89. This is a one-time charge only. If sponsored you will become an active team member for 1 year. During this period we will negotiate and secure for you additional sponsorships at NO COST. Remember, CarSponsorships.com NEVER charges for additional sponsorships. If we are unable to secure you your initial sponsorship, your card will not be charged.[/b]
they WILL get you a sponsorship with decalkits.com, and they you are obligated to pay. you dont get a choice to turn down the sponsorship and not pay because the basis of paying was to "negotiate and secure" the sponsorship, and EVERYONE is securesd with a sponsorship with decalkits.

okay, i was just informing you since i helped my teacher out with a case like this. the point is, even though you did not know that everyone gets the same sponsorship, what it boils down to, is that you actually do get a sponsorship. they are not commiting fraud because they dont have to let you know this information, as long as you get a sponsorship, they have done their duty. However, in the case of the fraud situation, if they did want to go through finding out who you really are, they could, and bring you to court on a fraud case, and the end factor would make you lose more money than what you essentially went to court to settle. i'd just pay it, and get it over with.

^^^ Sounds right to me. That, and the fact that using a fake credit card number to obtain goods or services (even if you decide you don't want them later) is per se fraud.

Here I'll show you guys what he said. in the e-mail instructing me to use a fake credit card number. He hasn't responded to me telling him im'm not paying wihtout a godo cause yet either.

Here is the whole e-mail..I'll bold the part that I'm talking about.

Thank you for your email. We are not affiliated with the TV show "Pimp My Ride" or MTV. The Pimp Your Ride sponsorships program is where you, the driver/owner of the car will receive at least one full sponsorship from one of our participating sponsors, 3 or more quasi-sponsorships and 1 industry "perk" sponsorship from our sponsors. These sponsorship packages range from graphics, audio, suspension, lighting, tint, and others. You will also have the opportunity to be featured at one of the HIN. shows. You are responsible for installation and shipping of all products.

Let me explain the difference between Full and Quasi Sponsorships.
Full - This is where a company will provide you with products, no expense to you.
Quasi - They provide you with a discounted price (below dealer cost) on their products.
In both cases you get the benefit of being sponsored and getting the hottest products sometimes before they hit the market.
Shipping and Installation will always be at your cost, unless otherwise noted by one of our partners.

Here is a link to our "How It Works" page http://www.carsponsorships.com/faq.html
Here is an online gallery with photos and testimonials http://www.carsponserships.com/cgi-bin/gallery/gallery.pl 
Due to a break down in databases I will need to you to fill in your information on this link:

http://www.carsponsorships.com/slip/agree.html

Do not worry about the credit card information if you do not have one. Fill in "dummy"(start the Credit Card number with "z") credit card information. When you hit submit, it will probably say declined or invalid, don't worry about that the application DID GO THROUGH. Send me an e-mail once you have done so. This way I will be able to see you application directly and personally review it. I will then get back with you, since you have been pre approved, if you do put valid card information in, you will be charged. I have set you up for automatic approval in that system. You must e-mail me back once you have filled that in so I know I got it correctly. If you do not have a credit card you wish to use, you can send in a Money order for the amount of 89.00 along with your Name, Phone Number, and E-Mail Address to:

And there you go. If he doesnt respond I'm not paying shi t
