The following is general information on envelope stuffing:
In many envelope stuffing promotions, a company offers to pay fantastic wages to "stuff envelopes and submit them according to instructions". After paying for the instructions, participants learn that they must also buy the company's books on "money-making" plans, and place advertisements at their own expense in newspapers, magazines or on bulletin boards. The advertisements invite persons to send the participant a S.A.S.E. for information on earning money at home. Each envelope received in this manner is then stuffed by the participant with the company's circular. Once a required number of letters is accumulated, they are sent to the company for payment. Earnings by participants are based entirely on the number of responses they receive to the ads.
In practically all businesses, envelope stuffing has become a highly mechanized operation using sophisticated mass mailing techniques and equipment, which eliminates any profit for an individual doing this type of work at home. If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is.
