Richard Atashian is an individual who places ads in national publications. He offers information on the following: Home Assembly, Grants and Get Paid For Mailing Letters.
This individual's "help wanted" ad touts earnings claims of $400.00 a week for assembling products. The ad invites consumers to send away for "free" work-at-home information. When consumers receive the "free" information, they are asked to pay $27.00 in order to receive a list of companies that purportedly offer home assembly work. Consumers are then on their own to research the viability and availability of any actual home assembly work.
For $49.00, this individual provides a list of purported grant providers. The company's "grant" offer is similar to its "home assembly" offer in that consumers are on their own to research the availability and legitimacy of any actual grants.
Lastly for $32.00, this individual offers a manual called "Get Paid Mailing Letters." The individual claims this program will show consumers step-by-step how they can get paid for mailing letters without paying postage, placing ads, buying circulars or name lists.
