My name is Jasvinder and I live in UK and I would like to earn extra cash at home, but I am only at the moment interested in stuffing envelopes. I was wondering if you could let me know a bit more about it and how can I start?
Jasvinder, I live in the States, and unfortunately, I have never had any luck with such a thing. If you go onto the internet and find something and apply, the next thing you know you are asked to send in money (okay, if I HAD money I wouldn't need to apply to such a thing!), or worse, you fill out all the information and then you are covered up in spam that is sent to your email. I know that there are legitimate work at home jobs, I finally did find one, but this person advertised in the local newspaper and I applied to the job; I was one of the lucky ones. Most people have bad experiences to share about any "work at home" jobs.. I think you should check your local newspaper, or maybe place an ad yourself and see what turns up. Just be careful and don't let yourself be scammed out of money, and don't give out any personal information. Good luck to you.
I cannot understand how the envelope stuffing jobs can be anything but a scam. Just think logically. Most of them promise that they send you the list of names and addresses to use, the materials to put in the envelopes and the postage to mail them. If they have all these things, wouldn't it be easier for them to just do the stuffing and mailing instead of paying the postage to send them to you to stuff? And if any work at home job asks you to pay for anything to get started, they are usuallythey are usually the only one to make any money on the deal. The only legitimate business I ever saw for Homeworkers was the Neilson Coupon Clearing House in Clinton, Iowa. That was many years ago, and I worked at their company, not from home, but they did hire women to address envelopes at home for rebates and premiums that were popular back then ( in the 60's). Offers, such as, send a proof of purchase for Aluminum Foil and a receipt for your Thanksgiving Turkey and receive a $2 rebate. But most of the offers you see are definitely scams. Of course, I don't know anything about the UK, but don't think the US has cornered the market on Work at Home scams.

Stuffing envelops is a scam.Another is assembling products at home.You have to sent in money up front then the product is rejected because of poor quality.Same with envelope stuffing.Go find a legitimate job.
I would like to know how soon I could start working at home. What is the first step I have to take?
Is there anything I could do working at home?
It doesn't have to be stuffing envelopes. It could be something else.
They all are just scammers.
We are looking for earning money but the mail envelope works, they want money for initial registration. Don't believe it guys, nothings gonna work out unless you find a good job for your self home working. I have search many many from google couldn't find the genuine one.
I have extensively searched this subject and still am searching. So far, I've found a few good ideas but none that work for me. I have read articles in magazines and seen on tv that you should NEVER pay someone to work for them They are ALWAYS scams.
I know someone who does "virtual assisting" online. But this person fell into it through another job she had. She was selling beauty products and ended up being a virtual assistant for the regional directors. She creates newsletters and things for them and sends them out to the people who actually do the selling among other things. Basically, she's like a secretary who doesn't go to the office at all. I've looked at some VA sites and they have some good info. Probably I'm just not motivated to really do it. http://vadirectory.net/blog/
Lately, I've been reading about blogging for money but I don't see how that could create enough money to support yourself or a family. http://www.problogger.net/archives/ ... /how-bloggers-make-money-from-blogs/
I am in the U.S. and know next to nothing about the UK so I don't know if any of these sites will help you or anyone else. But I feel like I've gained a little knowledge about the subject. I would still encourage you to do searches of your own and I really like the idea about putting an ad in the paper. I really feel, though, that if anyone wants you to pay to work for them that you should run far and fast from it. I hope this helps.
I almost forgot. If you are crafty, you might make things like christmas ornaments, crocheted or knitted items and many other things to sell on Ebay. There are many websites and books on the subject of selling on Ebay.
