Work from Home Stuffing Envelopes

All Envelope Stuffing Ads Are Scams!

That’s right. All those ads you’ve seen your whole life: $350 per month, Guaranteed, Just to Stuff Envelopes. All of them are scams.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) says that in all its investigations into this scam, over decades, it has never found a single legitimate work at home envelope stuffing scheme. And they would know! They deliver all the envelopes!

Furthermore, the Post Office says that the actual work of envelope-stuffing, that real businesses do actually need, has become so highly mechanized (done by big machines) that there is almost no room at all for anyone to possibly make a profit doing this. Maybe there was once a time when a company could have a legitimate use for a team working from home envelope stuffing, but that time is long gone.

Now, that’s just the Post Office’s viewpoint. They could be wrong. They don’t know everything. I mean, they lost several billion dollars in revenue last year, so…

Folks, the bottom line is that anyone who is hotly pursuing you, whether it be through the classified section in your newspaper or through pop-up ads online, and claiming that they will pay you $1-$2 per envelope stuffed has got a trick up their sleeve.

How the Scam Works

While there are many variations on the age-old “Work from home stuffing envelope” scam, probably the most typical one goes like this:

You respond to the ad, eager to be able to work and watch The Price Is Right simultaneously. It sounds too good to be true, but wouldn’t the government have stopped them already if it really was an all-out con job? I mean, here they are advertising themselves in the newspaper of all places. What con artist would out himself for all to see like that? There must be something to it, you think. So you respond.

The next thing that happens in this scenario is that you’re told you have to pay $29.95 to get in on this. This money basically just shows them that you’re serious. I mean, if you’re not willing to pay $30 to make hundreds a week in perfect peace and ease from home, then you’re just not what they’re looking for from their “network of team members”.

So gullible old you, you send them the money. About a week later, you get a package in the mail. This is what you’ve been waiting for. It will contain the seed of the program and before you know it you’ll be divvying up a little corner of your TV room to set aside “just for work”.

So what is inside the package you receive? Well, it’s your instructions. It tells you that you won’t in fact be making your money by stuffing envelopes. But they have something even better to offer you which requires no physical labor at all!

All you have to do is place an ad like the one that originally hooked you into the work at home scam in the first place. That’s right, you have to now go fishing for other idiots like yourself. And if you get good at that, then maybe you can make some real money…

And on and on it goes. There are numerous variations in the different “business models” that these scams may use to operate, but they’re all completely empty, offering nothing and giving nothing. The simple fact is that working from home stuffing envelopes is just too easy to be true.

Start Your Own Direct Mail Services Business


If, despite all that I have just told you about work from home jobs stuffing envelopes, you just still can’t shake your life-long dream of making a living in this field, well don’t give up yet. There still may be a way. But it won’t involve paying any money to anyone up front. And it won’t even involve responding to an ad.

Your best option is going to be to start your own direct mail services business. Despite what the USPS has to say about there being a complete lack of need for envelope stuffers nowadays, there still may be a niche to do “mail services” for small, local companies in and around your home.

(Now that I think about it, maybe the Post Office just doesn’t want anyone infringing on their own mail services business.)

I’m not going to tell you that if you start an operation like this it will be successful, but it is something you could look into. I would start by simply thinking about what businesses in your area could possibly have a need for an individual contractor to handle their mass mailings. Maybe car dealers? Maybe even the town itself could use someone like you to get the word out about certain events? I really don’t know, but I would think there’s some service that you could possibly provide there. The fact is, there are still envelopes being stuffed in every town all across the world everyday. Just a thought. And you could definitely do this work at home, but please remember there's no such thing as free work from home stuffing envelopes.

EARN $5.20 PER ENVELOPE WITH OUR STUFFING ENVELOPES AT HOME PROGRAM

This program actually pays you $5.20 for every

envelope you stuff...

I don’t stuff envelopes myself, I have employees do that for me, but I did stuff them when I started. Just like you will when you get started. My company has stuffed and mailed out 100’s of thousands of envelopes year after year. This program has made me a great deal of money.

How Much Money can I make Stuffing envelopes at home?

Have you ever walked into a car dealership, picked out a new car, and wrote a check for the full amount? I did! All possible because of stuffing envelopes.

A few years after I started my stuffing envelopes business, I built a 3,000 square foot home in an exclusive area of my city on a hill with a great view, and payed for it while it was constructed. It took 6 months to build, and when it was completed I owned it free and clear with no mortgage. All possible because of stuffing envelopes.

That’s the kind of money that can be made with the right stuffing envelopes at home program.

Here is what they have to say about our stuffing envelopes at home program:

Mr. Orod D. From Canada

earned $156,000

in the last 8 months. “Getting this program has been one of the most rewarding and satisfying business decisions I have ever made. I am able to help people and make a nice income for myself. I recently bought a house and a 4-runner with profits I made. Thanks to this wonderful program.” Andrea Taylor, PA

Mrs. Andrea T. From PA

earned $98,000

in the last 12 months.

Mr. Luis G. From CA has consistent

income of $1,050 to $1,200

every week.

Mrs. Zabra N.

earned $8,450

in only 2 months.

My program is guaranteed to contain everything you need to succeed: You can look forward to a steady flow of income month after month from now on.

I absolutely guarantee that I have made $5.20 for every envelope that I have stuffed and mailed, and so can you. You have my word on it and I’ll stake my 26 year reputation on it. I’ll give you my personal direct phone line so you can call me for all the free support you may need.
