  • From an answer I gave here about work at home positions and how to avoid scams (the link addresses several work at home scams and how to avoid them): http://www.answerbag.com/a_view.php/6351 (Part of the answer I gave from the above link, that specifically addresses envelope stuffing) Envelope Stuffing When answering ads for envelope stuffing, you may not receive the expected envelopes for stuffing, but instead get promotional material asking for cash in exchange for the details on money-making plans. Pursuing the envelope ad plan may require spending several hundred dollars more for advertising, postage, envelopes and printing. This system feeds on continuous recruitment of people to offer the same plan. **According to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, envelope stuffing has become a highly mechanized operation using sophisticated mass mailing techniques and equipment which eliminates any profit potential for an individual doing this type of work at home.** What do I mean by stuffing envelopes? How much explanation does that require? Um, the question asked whether or not these types of work at home jobs (stuffing envelopes) was a scam or legitimate. The very last sentence, which I have now highlighted using asteriks, answers the question. I don't know what it is you don't understand, but the answer is correct.
  • I gave here an answer to another similar question: http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/929943 About the job of stuffing envelopes, here some supplementary information: "Envelope stuffing work from home was popular in the 1950s onwards before the invention of cheap and easy to buy computers and printers." http://www.findextrawork.co.uk/stuffingenvelopes.php "EVERY ENVELOPE-STUFFING "OPPORTUNITY" IS A SCAM. As far as I know, there are NO EXCEPTIONS to that rule. " http://www.friendsinbusiness.com/scams/envelopes.shtml "Work at Home Stuffing Envelopes legitimate opportunities don't really exist." http://www.home-business-savvy.com/work-at-home-stuffing-envelopes.html
  • I have worked for printers and mail houses. They have high speed folders and envelope stuffers that can do the wotk in a fraction of the time it would take them to send the materials to you. This equipment is also more accurate and incredibly cheap compared to wages. It doesn't make sense. Avoid it.
  • Everyone has said stuffing envelopes is a scam, thats useful, but you didn't tell her what else is available
  • some are legit....if you consider earning $2/hr legit
  • I was going to ask same question. It would be nice to know that some are not here to scam us but hey, you don't get money for nothing in this world.
  • I have a friend stuffing envelopes for .35 each. Apparently there is a law or something that requires certain type of mail to be manual, this rules out high speed equipment used to stuff and mail. This may explain why I get hand written envelopes with junk mail. Anybody knows about this mailing regulation?
  • You can expect to put a lot of time and too much money into those programs...it's a law of large numbers and trust me your making them money not money for yourself or your family...I would tell you to save your time and money.
  • nope,they are scams,what you have to remember is the internet was solely invented for two things,fraud and porn
