SCP is a SCAM!!!!

The money you pay is a donation to some illegal street racing fund. Ok, we need ask where is the money going? Who is getting it? and how is it being spent? Keep any info pertaining to SCP. I have a # of someone at SCP. CALL Bill 302-892-3400 make it a point to call him twice a day about your sponsorship package. This is the only way we are going to get anywhere with this scam...if we bother them enough they are not going to want to deal with the calls. It's hard I'd like to start a law suit against them but it cost big money...I say keep calling, you bought something just keep on them til you get it...but really you find better deals on ebay than this scaming outfit. I've turned them into the internet fraud...but they don't care...so we have to try something else. Also call Ty at SCP 1-888-333-7621....LOL I just called while writing this...call tell them you want to join the scam...they are going to hate all the calls...bother them how ever you want.

Alright guys so I have been sponsored to drop a ford crate v8 and convert it to rear wheel drive....

Now comes the bullshit about the sponsor..
It's sport compact pro..
Now Stop the tsking and sighs and jeers..
These guys are legit
The previous owner has been ripping people off...
That I can't deny..
That is why he is not around any longer.
The guys at sport compact are very kind respectable and generous..
The contract proceesing fee is legit..
They draw up personal contracts for EVERY PERSON
No car sponsorship is the same...
and the fee IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!
Take it from someone who does his own taxes...
1099 at the end of the year
Independent contractors contract
The guys who talk all this shit are people who wanted stock cars sponsored, and they got the sponsorship because these guys wanna help the little people out... The people trying to get their project off the ground. Why hate on people being helpful...
Also the complaints about them not having any parts in the wholesaler catalogues they provide....
If they don't provide it Sport Compact Pro WILL FIND IT!!
I know for a fact that dave from sport compact spent about 4 hours last night looking for an m3 styling kit for one of his sponsored supras...
So how can you talk shit when you haven't spoke to these people personally...
And about the people not being able to get ahold of their sponsor, Think about it... If you had 25 cars you had to find parts for and maintain that they are keeping their end of the bargain.. You would be hard to get ahold of too.

So all in all I am very confident about my sponsorship from sport compact pro.. and if you did have a problem with them look at www.bbb.com (better business bureau) and look for yourself, they have been working hard since the previous main shareholder had fucked things up...
And all you naysayers are just fueling the fire...
So you guy's can keep driving your beater 94' integras

I'll call you when I break 6's with my sponsored focus

Re: SCP is a SCAM!!!!

hey all..just reged to post for this... but ill eb coming back here.

i also got a call from SCP and carsponsorships.com. they were very excited telling me i was sponsored for this an that. im a endorsed musician so i knwo a bit abotu being sponsored. again i said theyu were very helpful and excited in trying to find me stuff i coudl qualify for until....

i told them what kinda car i have. 1975 280Z 5 speed, slightly modified.

they said, well, we have stereo and decal and lightig kits.. i said i dont need/want those. do you haev any body kits, engine parts, etc?

they said they are not affiliated with any engine co's as street racing si illegal. i told them im a registered/licenced autocrosser and the guy (SCOTT his name was) didnt knwo what that meant.

anyway, after 30 minutes on the phone, no one there coudl find me anything for the car. he said he was gonna send me soem paperwork and soem decals and id get em in 2 weeks. i said fine.

THAN it hits me. after i hung up i realized i filled out something online to get this fool to call me anyway. and lo and behold i saw an 88 dollar charge on my card the next day. ive since had it reveresed with my bank, thank god! so well see what happenes next.

PLEASE FOR TEH SAKE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY. DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY. I DONT KNWO ABOTU CARS, BUT IN MUSIC REALITY YOU NEVER HAVE TO SEND ANYONE MONEY TO GET STUFF. that only happens if lets say you get a 75% off deal, than of course you pay the differance.

speaking of the co's these guys use, i went to all there sites and the stuff looks liek crap. oh i almost forgot, he offered me verticle doors. i said thast cool, if i get them for free. he saoid no, about 1500. i can get teh kits myself from a magazeene cheeper than that! the best part is, is they say they have deals with dunlop, so i asked abotu tires...and guess what. they couldnt even find anythign to fit my rims...wierd. they are STOCK NISSAN RIMS! idiots.

see kids, if this was a REAL endoresement company they woudl find you stuff that woudl work in your car!!!!!

strike 3 with me. anyone else actually take pix of there "products installed" lets see them

So Ripped off too

SCP Is the biggest scam out there. They Just sale wholesale, with a NORMAL Profit margin. MSVP Is about 40% + On any product and they only mark it up to what 25% hell thats still less them MSVP and More then Cost. I joined, and within a day i knew it was a scam. I should have known, when you have to PAY to get a sponser. All the sponsers i had, PAID ME. Plus i had an old school rx7, you think they had any parts?, Told me that i would have a pro sponsership slot and would pay up for 50% of my motor. Well I Even proviod them with a suppier and as i expected, Nothing. They wanted me to buy though theirs so they could mark it up and and then back down to give me my 50%. Tell you the truth, smart guys. I Work in Wholesale, I know how much everything cost. Thats B.S.

Well moving on, After i pay them the "sign up fee" or what ever, I decied i want to Cancel it, Cut my losses, I couldn't get my money back ( the review board said no), So i wrote a letter Canceling the Account( as required in the Contract, and anther letter to The better business bureau. And thought my fight was done. BUT NO, I recently looked over the charges on my credit card and found a *NEW* $65 charge from them (imagine a membership renewal) . I went NUTS! I call my bank and have the charges pending. I call to get a refund, And of course it has to go to their (review board), I said that was bullshit and want the Top dog the person that can fix this. Some chick, ellen, or something i can't remeber, well her extention is 105. @ 302- 892-3400. She Still has not call me back. I would like to also file a class action lawsuit too. All i want is to be DONE with them, and get my money back, or parts of = or greater value. And to NEVER HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN!!! I will not endose them, In fact i would run a " Anit-Team SPC1" Campain at all Midwest drift day events, and at all SCCA events i attend. Hell at this point i want to start a friggin website, just to hate them. I'll keep posting till this is resolved. And i welcome any Insite from Team SCP As no one really handles anything there anyways, maybe something may get done this way?

Re: SCP is a SCAM!!!!

im probably going to get ripped for this but i actually have a carsponsors account and i get items from that at a discounted price usually 30-50% off if not more. i have ordered 2 things through them and about to make my third order and have not had any problem. i have also talked a teamscp1 guy on the phone and via e-mails and they sounded legit and i have talked to people that have a sponsorship through them. even tho they are not a sponsor they do the same thing car sponsors do. but i do think they get more things for your car than carsponsors cause they only give you things for your car that are more for show and not to help your speed much.

anyways thats my 2 cents.
