The envelope stuffing scam has worked for years and has made the jump from the newspaper small ads and posters to the internet where Like dubious home assembly and piecework jobs, scams will unfortunately continue, as long as there are people who are desperate for money looking for unskilled work they can do at home.
The scam targets the vulnerable such as the unemployed, sick, stay-at-home mums and the retired or housebound who are easy targets because they are often actively looking for ways to increase their income.
They will usually guarantee that you make money from envelope packing or get a refund, but in practice this almost never happens.
Once you have sent money, there is virtually zero chance of getting it back - the advertiser will either ignore your requests and not answer your emails and calls, or point out whichever part of the small print says you can't have a refund because There is always a high demand for work which can be done at home, so the scammers only have to convince a small proportion of their target audience to send in money for that 'golden envelope filling, folding or addressing opportunity', and they can make a good profit.
There is always the exception that proves the rule, and some small to medium sized businesses may still have a requirement for some genuine manual envelope filling and labelling work.
Also some graphic design, marketing and other businesses occasionally need people to manually pack specialist mailshots which aren't suitable for mechanical handling.
It is just not viable to employ anybody to work from home packing envelopes by hand anymore.
Computers and printers are now cheap to purchase, and the requirement for someone to sit and laboriously fold or hand-write envelopes and labels is virtually zero.
Modern computer-controlled machinery now completes the work of envelope stuffing much quicker and cheaper than humans, (even those from third-world countries willing to work below the minimum wage).
Once you've sent off your 'investment', you'll either receive nothing or you'll be sent a letter which explains how you can earn money persuading other people to do just what you did i.e.
post advertising to get new victims to respond to your ads.
This kind of work, although genuine, can be hard to find even when it's outsourced.
