We are in a very competitive world, and internet is making inbound in every part of the universe. A lot of ‘get rich quick’ programs are being advertised and popularized in offline and online channels. We have heard a lot about home jobs and home businesses. We have seen some people making it and others ‘scammed’.
There are legitimate and illegitimate affiliate programs, data entry jobs, pyramid schemes, multi-level marketing, writing jobs and opportunities that one get well advertised online. Making money stuffing envelopes are now very popular. The key question is this: is there anyone out there willing to pay to stuff envelopes?
In the first place, one is told that envelop stuffing is a job, but who do you give identification details or social security number to? According to the US law, an employer who gives you a job ought to submit records of you to the authorities concerned, and you are protected by the relevant legislations. There is therefore no making money stuffing envelopes; they are merely opportunities to perform some tasks of sending mails to people you know or do not know asking them to join programs which may scam or not scam them. That is the plain truth!
According to the United States Postal Services Corporation, thousands of Americans are lured to these scams christened as stuffing envelopes at home.
The majority of mentioned jobs are illegitimate. You will know an illegitimate envelop stuffing job after observing the following characteristics:
1) The advertisers do not give reliable support contact.
At times the websites of the advertisers will not give you any email address or phone number for support. At times they will give you some toll free numbers that will always give automated answers to you calls.
2) The advertisers do not give physical address.
There is no assurance that these people are located anywhere in the world. Avoid getting involved in any company whose physical residence is the internet.
3) The advertisers will ask for processing or set up fees.
The moment you are asked for a fee, think twice. There are legitimate envelop stuffing jobs from home programs that will ask for some fees. Majority of those making money stuffing envelopes that ask for cash before earning are illegitimate. Think hard before you commit your credit card details.
