Work At Home Schemes

Fri Nov 28, 2003 8:23 am

How are these beneficial to the company's. Im not talking about the pyramid schemes and such but the filling out surveys and stuffing envelopes. It just all seems to easy. The earning potential for one hour of stuffing envelopes at 5$ an envelope is astronomical. Whats everybodies experience and or opinions of these operations.

Someone is willing to pay you $5.00 an envelope to do nothing more than stuff them?

What these schemes dont tell you is that you'll be required to purchase materials/logos/copyright approvals/etc before they let you get started... after that, you'll have spent $25-50 plus.

Then, they'll get you started, and mysteriously "go out of business".... having pocketed your initial expense, but paying you nothing, or only once.

Happens to people around here all the time. They're easily suckered in, especially by the ones who do give you at least one paycheck/stub/cash/etc.

I agree with ConcordeBoy, here in Ontario there have been many of these job add in newspapers, street posts, etc.etc.etc.

To my knowledge, you are asked to forward a cheque for around $50 and then they will forward all the information to you and tell you when they would like you to start. All to my knowledge have been fronts/schemes to get your $50 and then become non existent....BEWARE and THINK ABOUT IT..........who would pay someone $5 to suff an envelope!!

Even the relatively honest ones - the ones who pay you for work done - have insanely optimistic pay offers.

Maybe they say you can earn $6.00 per hour... at 0.2 cents per envelope...

I used to work in the Classified department of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. These job lisitngs are all scams. And the government never, ever advertises government jobs in the classifieds. If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

What about the survey ones? where you pay the initial registration of around 30 and take surveys online for companies are these more legit?

If you respond to an offer that says "Get rich quick! But we need $30 from you first" then you probably deserve what you get.  Smile

Sxmarbury, not legit. Bobrayner is right, and a bunch of dishonest opportunists are counting on it. The best way to work at home is to start your own business.

I've tried every possible work at home schemes. They are all SCAMS. They never tell you the details untill you pay the initial start up cost, and then you realize that its now what they advertised. They say "get rich fast" but in fact it them who get rich fast.

DO NOT BELIEVE ANY OF THEM.
