Work At Home Promotions
When responding to an advertisement for working at home, for example, stuffing envelopes, you will generally receive - for a fee - instructions as to how to place similar ads in other publications, also offering work at home opportunities. Allegedly, you will get paid for each response you receive and send back to the original company.
Many such work at home schemes have been put out of business by the postal authorities. (Work at home offers are also illegal in some states.) The Postal Service additionally advises that envelope stuffing is a highly mechanized process, eliminating the possibility of the need for home-workers.
Other work at home promotions may involve assembling crafts or pillows. You should be aware, however, that advance fees for the necessary materials are often required, that the crafts may take longer to assemble than represented, and that the company will pay only for finished products it deems acceptable.
