Make Money Stuffing Envelopes?

I just about lost my mind when I saw that people are still searching the Internet for topics like “make money stuffing envelopes.”

Maybe I should back up a bit.  I was looking in Google to see what people are searching for and came across the fact that 3,600 people per month are still looking up information on the subject.

People, don’t you know that you can’t make money doing this?  It is a scam that has been around ever since I can remember.  So let me just say, “You can’t make money with envelope stuffing.”

It is always a safe bet to know that something is a scam when it is worded like it is a job but they want you to pay for the shipping and handling before you get the opportunity to make any real money.

I once got taken for a ride on a scam with Native American jewelry assembly.  You needed to assemble tiny beaded jewelry that takes many hours just to assemble one and then you would only get paid about $2 for it.  When you did the math you were only making about 0.50 to 0.75 cents an hour.

The scam is that they know you will give up and they will keep your shipping and handling money for a nice profit.  When done in volume, they make out like gangbusters because what they really did was sell you an unassembled product for a nice profit!

So the moral of the story is that you can’t make money stuffing envelopes.  There are no shortcuts.  Whether you are trying to make money online or off, you need to be smart and do your homework.  Pay your dues by putting in the time that it takes to learn how to market and you will surely make it.

Have you had a bad experience with a scam offer?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
