Making Money by Stuffing Envelopes at Home

July 26, 2010

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.

There are, but there are lots of scams. Be very careful of any company that charges you fees up front.

increasingly, these are scams and pyramid schemes of various kinds. We ironically live in a world that requires less envelope stuffing than in years past.

To make extra money doing random small stuff you're better off going to Amazon Mechanical Turks, Fiverr.com, where you can sell a service you provide for cheap/free, and inboxdollars is a site where you can get pennies for doing different promo tasks

i do not believe there is very much need for this type of job anymore and this just means someone is trying to get your money while giving you nothing in return. There are at home jobs out there but most as low pay and many require certain "skills". A lot of people do survey jobs because they are easy and can be done almost anytime of day or night but they do pay a lot of money. it can add up if you meet their most wanted age/family group.
Have you thought of trying to sell items on eBay? Most people have some items clothing/appliances/collectibles laying around that might bring in a small sum every once in a while. You can even use your smartphone for listing and uploading photos. Just a thought.

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.

It doesn't have to be stuffing envelopes. It could be something else.

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. vadirectory.net/.../

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.

Are there any, stuffing envelope, work at home sites that are not a scam?

Making money at home by stuffing envelopes is a scam. There are mass marketers that do that as well as design and print the flyer. They are automated so they can print and address them by the hundreds in just minutes and at a fraction of the cost of someone trying to stuff an envelope at home.

I am just inquiring if anyone out there has researched or has stuffed envelopes at home. Thinking of doing so for extra income. Any advice?

Editor's Note: There does not appear to be any legitimate envelope stuffing opportunities on the Internet. They all require money up front and often do not send you anything in return. The ones that are real appear to be only available in your local area. Please post your own experiences below, good or bad.

A friend of mine tried this and it was a scam. She never made any money at all. I would definitely research the company and get a clear answer on when and how you will be paid and do not whatsoever invest in any kits or business opportunities they may offer you to get started.
