IS STUFFING ENVELOPES FROM HOME A REAL JOB?

Invariably, one of the first things people who want to work from home come across is envelope stuffing. In their search for ways to make money from home, stuffing envelopes is something that has been advertised everywhere for a long time and because of that many people are familiar with the sales pitch.

Both make money stuffing envelopes and doing paid surveys online have gotten a bad rap as ways to make money but do they deserve that stigma? In the case of paid surveys some websites are indeed legitimate as I have proven with CashCrate (I make $250 to $350 a month with CashCrate), while any survey sites you pay to join are most probably not legitimate. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for envelope stuffing as it seems they all are a waste of time. (please go here for my best ways to make money risk free)

The title of this post asks whether stuffing envelopes from home is a real job and I would say that not only is it not a real job, but anything to do with envelopes is probably a scam. One thing that separates the legitimate home business opportunities from the scams is whether you have to pay to join. Think about it: do you have to pay money to get a job with McDonald’s, Macy’s, FedEx, or any other real company? Why then would you have to pay money for any online job or job you find through the Internet? In some cases in any work situation you might have to pay money to take a test or buy certain equipment that you need for a job but you don’t have to pay for the privilege of working for a company.

When you get involved in any stuffing envelopes scheme you will most often be required to first send someone money.  The advertisement might call it a fee to make sure “you’re serious” about their envelope stuffing program and charge you anywhere from $29.95 up. Even if they somehow don’t ask for a start up fee they will later.

How do most envelope stuffing schemes work? Can you get paid stuffing envelopes? What you will be stuffing in those envelopes is the same sales pitch ad you responded to. They recruited you and got you to pay and now it will be your job to get others to fall for the same thing. Will you be getting the $1.00 or $2.00 per envelope you were promised for stuffing all those ads into envelopes? No, and you will not get paid until they get paid, if at all.

There are many variations of the envelope stuffing pyramid scheme but will most likely be up to you to figure out some way to make money from this little scam. Perhaps you can charge people $1.00 for the info or send your letter out to some mailing list. The bottom result is that you will be working to get more people to pay into the system and get more $29.95 payments going to the company or the envelope stuffing ringleader.

These schemes and scams all work because they sound like they could be legitimate and they have some very talented copywriters behind the ads. In order to make sales online or offline you have to be convincing and know how to close a sale. The online world is full of people who can write the most convincing sales letters advertising the crappiest ebooks and that is why so many people feel that anything to do with the Internet may be a scam. It’s unfortunate that there are so many shady online schemes out there that hurt all the good ones. They make finding real job ideas that much harder.

    This is one of the oldest scams in the book. People are usually shocked once they get realize they’ve been had and they won’t actually be stuffing envelopes. Just trying to get other suckers to fall for the same thing they fell for.

    Anytime you see an ad in the classifieds offering hundreds of dollars to stuff envelopes it’s probably a scam. If you think otherwise, I have a friend in Nigeria who has an excellent investment opportunity.

    I ran into this money making stuffing envelope like 25 years ago. It was a scam then and will always be. The funny thing is for every person born, there will always be a sucker. Just glad I wasn’t one of them. I guess we all have to get scammed one way or another to become smarter.

    I got scammed with this envelope stuffing crap
    about a year ago. they charged me $45.00, and
    I feel for it like a dummy, and they sent me
    same exact instructions on how to place an ad
    like they did, to try to get other people to
    pay they same price i did, i tried to get my
    money back but they never sent it back. I wish
    I could find a great work from home job that
    require no money at all to work, or that don’t
    require you to have high speed internet, because i
    have dial-up. if you know of such a job, please let
    me know, because I’m a single mother of two,and
    I need to make money as soon as possible.

    The envelope thing is almost the oldest scam in the book… but it’s good for people who don’t know about it for this article to be out there. I mean, if no one tells you, why wouldn’t you try it? with all the “testimonies” it can be quite convincing!

    There are not “plenty of good stuffing companies out there”. Stay away from envelope stuffing if you value your money.
