How Legitimate Envelope Stuffing Jobs Would Work in a Perfect World:
For a small processing fee, you'll receive a "starter kit" (or they will tell you how to earn money stuffing envelopes at home). It sounds as if they send you envelopes and flyers and all you do is insert, address and mail out the envelopes. But that's not what happens . . .
How Envelope Stuffing Jobs Really Work:
All you receive is a letter explaining how to place exactly the same advert that you replied to. You place the advert in shop windows or online and then send the same information you received to the people that replied. The only legitimate thing in this whole scam is that you are essentially stuffing envelopes for money. However, it is illegal, it's a pyramid scheme and a scam. In fact, according to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service it is the most common scam.
People just like you have paid fees of of $65-$160 up-front for a package of supplies from the advertisers after being promised "Big paychecks within two weeks." Sure, they received the envelope-stuffing materials; but as they soon discovered they were simply sending out more of the same rubbish to people that responded to the adverts they placed. Another thing is, although being promised postage reimbursement, they never received it.
Time and money wasted!
What's The Truth with Envelope Stuffing Jobs?
It's a fact that any small business can simply buy a special printer with an attachment, costing them under $3500, that will literally fold and stuff up to 1200 envelopes per hour. There are dozens of envelope stuffing printers they could choose from too - with a multitude of different attachments to fold in different ways and to fit different sizes of paper and envelopes. Moving on up the scale, for under $18,000 it's possible to buy bachines that will stuff padded envelopes with large catalogs. So there's no need for work from home people to stuff envelopes at all!
Factor in the time and cost for the company to get together the materials for you and get them to you and you can quickly realise that it would be a lot more expensive for companies to attempt to manage a team of home based envelope stufers.
If a company can't afford to pay for this type of equipment, they can use a local business that will do it for them. The local business will probably even offer to have their materials printed for them at a discount. It can cost less than 50 cents per envelope for this type of service.
So you can see why they wouldn't be advertising for a team of home-based envelope stuffers based all around the world to do this work - why would they pay a complete stranger more to do a job they can get done cheaper/quicker locally?
