I sent $40.00 for envelope stuffing material and got back nothing but a "Secret Home Employment Guide". The offer was supposed to be money back guaranteed. Ha ha! HUGE SCAM! Don't answer newspaper ads from America Publishing, New Haven, CT. Trust me.

Write or call the CT. attorney general's office. Send them copies of all your info. You can do this by email I think. They will take care of it if they can. It is their job! We do not have to put up with these kinds of scams.
The consumer advocates on your local TV stations can warn others even if they can't do anything about it. Most TV stations do have a legal analyst who can advise you.
I found out years ago, that if some company or person asks for money for a service that you are performing for them then find something else that makes sense.
NEVER EVER pay in order to get work. It's always a scam.
How did you pay the $40.? If you, by chance paid with a major credit card, I'd call the credit card company and contest it. They will credit your account. I don't know why the Federal Government don't crack down on these. It's not that they don't know it because they have been around for years.
I'd take all the paperwork for this SCAM to my local postmaster since they used the US Mail to complete their fraud, they might do something about it. Sorry you lost money though. In these days and times, none of us who are trying so hard to make ends meet should have to put up with this sort of crookery. That's what our government is supposed to be taking care of and it's what we're paying them to do too. The crooks are getting by on just small technicalities, and someone needs to go after them big time. Just my opinion.
