stuffing envelopes at home for extra cash
    #3721204 - 02/02/05 10:14 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

this is in no way an advertisement

hey i picked up this flyer for www.businessmailsystems.com -- supposedly you can make hundreds a week just by stuffing envelopes for various companies, and work on your own schedule ... decide your own workload and whatnot.

im thinking of signing up but it requires that i send them $40 to get all the materials (1-time fee) so i dont want to do it if its a scam or if ill have to mail thousands of letters a week or something ridiculous

anyone ever tried a program like this or know someone who has? let me know whats up.

my friends mom used to do stuff like that. I think that there is a slight catch though. I think you get paid by how many of the envelopes get business or something. I'm not sure about that part though. I think that its relatively legit though. In any case I dont think they'll steel your $40 cause there seems to be a large business revolved around this. I wanted to try it when I was younger, but nothing really came of it. My own lack of initiative I think. I say give it a shot and if it works, spread the word to us shroomerites.

I'm sure quite a few of us wouldn't mind sitting on our asses stuffing envelopes while smoking hookahs all day in return for some fatty pay checks. Think of it. We are the perfect work force for them. I bet I could stuff more envelopes in a day than some sober ass housewife. It's the ones hopped up on amphetamines that you gotta watch out for. If I'm getting payed per envelope I'd stuff a shitload in a day.

did you read the fine print?

See program for complete details.




Read everything closely.

"The Better Business Bureau suggests using extreme caution when responding to any such offer. While ads claim high earnings and short hours with little or no experience, Bureau files nationwide indicate no evidence of anyone making the promised money. Rarely, if ever, are these ads an offer of legitimate employment. Generally, these "jobs" require up-front fees for information or supplies, and only the person who ran the ad makes any money."

god i am a fucking sucker ... thanks guys ... you saved me 40 bucks

dude, all they're going to do is send you a piece of paper telling you to put an ad in the newspaper for people to send you 40$ to learn how to stuff envelopes

the classic pyramid scheme.


--------------------
After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

I found this pretty humorous, as I actually make money taking care of mail myself.

Except I do it..
