So easy, no experience necessary. report scam However we need to make sure that only serious workers apply so there will be a “one-time fee for the enrollment costs are well as material that we will send you to mail out.

Does that sound familiar? To begin with I will tell you that if you see this or anything like it run a mile away. Do not think that this sounds good and it’s only a measly $29.99 so I can afford to lose that if it’s a scam. Just say to yourself, “It is a scam.” Envelope stuffing has been around for decades and while they have slowly evolved, it is always the same.

Just think for a second, why would any want to pay you $2-$4 to stuff an envelope and pay you over $500 a month or more, when they can buy themselves a machine that will stuff the envelopes for them? The machines are a few hundred dollars. In the long they would actually save money, by not paying someone else to stuff them.

How the scam works: You see an add similar to the one I wrote above. You send in the “small” fee which can be anywhere from $5 up to $100 or more. You sit at home waiting for your package thinking that you can put those brochures, pamphlets or postcards. The only thing your usually getting is a one page instruction telling you to put the same ad in a newspaper and wait for some sucker to grab the bait like you did.

There are also the one in which you are told to send $1 to everyone on a list, usually 5 people, put your name in the first slot and take off the #5 name and send out these letters to those people. You will then be getting all these people sending you $1, and before you know it you’ll be a millionaire. No you won’t, do I have to tell you this is a scam? A scam that long ago moved onto the internet and is now usually played with sites such as Paypal, and Stormpay.

Scam. This to me is just another for of MLM. Which is another scam to flush your money down the toilet. “Lose 40 pounds in less than a month. Feel better with this miracle juice. Tone up with this miracle cream etc, etc…..Once you try it, you will love it and even better if you get others to sign up under you; you can make thousands a month.”Same scam different twist. You just send $1 or more to these 5 or 10 accounts and you will soon have money flooding into your Paypal account.

This dear friends is known as Multi-Level Marketing (MLM). There are so many that I can’t get through even 1% of them. The usual basis of MLM is you see some product which is often, not worth the money, untested, unproven that you will get the results it claims to give you, and most importantly it might be dangerous. Just think, would you buy a bottle of green juice off someone on a street corner because they claim it will make you shed 100 pounds? Now the MLM I will talk about here is the “product” scam. This one is you are buying a product or joining up to work for them selling there product.
