There are just tons of ads all over the Internet about how much money you can make stuffing envelopes while you work at home in your spare time. This kind of opportunity of course, has been around for years, even before the Internet existed and although some of these offers are truly legitimate, a lot of them if not a majority of them are simply scams. Finding a real and truly decent paying job that pays you to stuff envelopes are out there but takes a lot of research to find them. Here’s what to avoid if you are looking for this kind of work.
Never send a deposit for anything. A common scam is to ask people to send them a deposit in order for them to get started. This claims to be money needed to cover the cost of the materials. In reality though all the people will receive for their money will be ads on stuffing envelopes or their slogan or some catalogs or magazines. A lot of times they will then require that you place an ad in your newspaper or online advertising their envelop stuffing business and you never end up getting anything to stuff into a single envelop.
These kinds of jobs are extremely risky and is one of the hardest work at home jobs there are to find that are legitimate. So, it’s something you will really have to be careful about and do a lot of research on.
Another thing you should never do is to send in a registration fee that is suppose to pay for your home starter kit. Always, always avoid these. This is how it works, you send them your money, that you can’t afford to send in the first place, then they will send you a package or just some information in a booklet that simply gives you instructions on how to rip everyone else off with the envelop stuffing scam. You will never receive any envelopes just useless information that you lost money over.
Never go near those ads that promise you full time work stuffing their envelopes and that you can make hundreds if not thousands of dollars each week doing nothing but stuffing envelopes. As always, this is a scam that sounds to good to be true because, it simply is not true. There is not one single company that can guarantee you job success, so never believe that claim. Understand that if the company is truly legitimate they usually can’t offer a person more than some part time work and they offer their work to people who simply are looking to earn a little extra money from home, no big claims, no big promises.
Note: Emails about envelope stuffing jobs should be avoided at all cost, these are always scams!
