I asked this question in the business section, but I meant for it to be in employment.
Scam. They're just one of those typical "earn money at home by stuffing envelopes" scams. You have to pay them a fee to get started, and you'll never make even enough money to recoup your investment.
Where can i find a job i can do at home without paying fees & regstering in Belgium?
I can type letters & stuff envelopes or do things on the computer for companies
Most "work-at-home" jobs are scams but there are a few good ones out there. Usually, you need to work in-office at the company's location and when a telecommute position opens up you should have an equal chance at getting it, upon request.
Also, try getting a job as a medical transcriptionist or such, or working in some department of a business who offers those services. Some require you to have a degree or certificate and some do not. Some offer training.
You could always do some research and start your own online travel agency. It probably wont make you millions each year but if you advertise and network you could live quite comfortably.
If you have any employment agencies nearby, you should contact them to see if they have companies seeking employees to work from home full time or part time.
If you're just looking for a few extra bucks each month, try joining a few survey & opinion sites. Some offer points that can be used to purchase cool items and some offer cash.
Good at making soaps or candles? You could try selling some of your products.
Does anybody know if those work from home jobs work? Can you recommend a good one? I need to make xtra money!?
I always see the ads, but are they for real? I need to make extra money. Also, do you have to make a payment to start?
Keep in mind that any company that asks you for money up front is not legitimate. They are making most of their profits off new sales recruits, not by selling product. Think about it this way... If you applied for a job at McDonald's, they would NEVER ask you to pay them for the opportunity to work there. There are real telecommuting/online jobs out there, but you must find these through traditional employers.
Most of the reponses you'll receive on here will be spam. The links they provide are almost always referral links, meaning THEY get paid if YOU sign up! Envelope stuffing and secret shopping will never be enough to pay the bills. Stay away from the online survey sites too, as from what I've experienced, are all scams that won't pay you.
If you really don't want to get a regular, full-time job, maybe you could sell on Ebay. I used to do this part-time selling overstocks and returns from various catalogs and retail companies. Amazon also allows you to list new/used items, and they charge you no fee unless the item sells.
If you just want to make extra money on the side, maybe you could clean homes (which actually pays VERY well), do lawn maintenance, student tutoring, or consider other creative opportunities.
is american publications in new haven ct a legitimate company or did i get ripped off?
i sent them 40.00 to supposedly stuff envelopes at home for 8.00 a piece
Envelope stuffing is one of the 'classic' work at home schemes described in full by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in a consumer advisory.

Earn thousand of dollars a month - from your home - Processing Medical Billing Claims.
You can find ads like this everywhere - from the street light and telephone pole on your corner to your newspaper and PC. While you may find these ads appealing, especially if you can't work outside your home, proceed with caution. Not all work-at-home opportunities deliver on their promises.
Many ads omit the fact that you may have to work many hours without pay. Or they don't disclose all the costs you will have to pay. Countless work-at-home schemes require you to spend your own money to place newspaper ads; make photocopies; or buy the envelopes, paper, stamps, and other supplies or equipment you need to do the job. The companies sponsoring the ads also may demand that you pay for instructions or "tutorial" software. Consumers deceived by these ads have lost thousands of dollars, in addition to their time and energy.
Classic Work-at-Home Schemes: Several types of offers are classic work-at-home schemes.
Medical billing. Ads for pre-packaged businesses - known as billing centers - are in newspapers, on television and on the Internet. If you respond, you'll get a sales pitch that may sound something like this: There's "a crisis" in the health care system, due partly to the overwhelming task of processing paper claims. The solution is electronic claim processing. Because only a small percentage of claims are transmitted electronically, the market for billing centers is wide open.
The promoter also may tell you that many doctors who process claims electronically want to "outsource" or contract out their billing services to save money. Promoters will promise that you can earn a substantial income working full or part time, providing services like billing, accounts receivable, electronic insurance claim processing and practice management to doctors and dentists. They also may assure you that no experience is required, that they will provide clients eager to buy your services or that their qualified salespeople will find clients for you.
The reality: you will have to sell. These promoters rarely provide experienced sales staff or contacts within the medical community.
The promoter will follow up by sending you materials that typically include a brochure, application, sample diskettes, a contract (licensing agreement), disclosure document, and in some cases, testimonial letters, videocassettes and reference lists. For your investment of ,000 to ,000, a promoter will promise software, training and technical support. And the company will encourage you to call its references. Make sure you get many names from which to chose. If only one or two names are given, they may be "shills" - people hired to give favorable testimonials. It's best to interview people in person, preferably where the business operates, to reduce your risk of being mislead by shills and also to get a better sense of how the business works.
Few consumers who purchase a medical billing business opportunity are able to find clients, start a business and generate revenues - let alone recover their investment and earn a substantial income. Competition in the medical billing market is fierce and revolves around a number of large and well-established firms.
Envelope stuffing. Promoters usually advertise that, for a "small" fee, they will tell you how to earn money stuffing envelopes at home. Later - when it's too late - you find out that the promoter never had any employment to offer. Instead, for your fee, you're likely to get a letter telling you to place the same "envelope-stuffing" ad in newspapers or magazines, or to send the ad to friends and relatives. The only way you'll earn money is if people respond to your work-at-home ad.
Assembly or craft work. These programs often require you to invest hundreds of dollars in equipment or supplies. Or they require you to spend many hours producing goods for a company that has promised to buy them. For example, you might have to buy a sewing or sign-making machine from the company, or materials to make items like aprons, baby shoes or plastic signs. However, after you've purchased the supplies or equipment and performed the work, fraudulent operators don't pay you. In fact, many consumers have had companies refuse to pay for their work because it didn't meet "quality standards."
Unfortunately, no work is ever "up to standard," leaving workers with relatively expensive equipment and supplies - and no income. To sell their goods, these
Does anyone know if the mail at home thing is a scam?
ive recieved a few letters stating that theres a way to earn extra money by basically stuffing envelopes at your home. they mail you the stuff to do it you just have to stuff the envelopes and send it back. theres a start up fee of like 40 bucks or so but i dont want to get scammed i was just tryin to see if i could make a lil extra cash by doing this ? has any one done it and know a good site i can look at to do the same thing? or is it scam-ville!? thanks!
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DO THIS. I tried this once, had to pay a start up fee, supply my own envelopes, copies, and postage, and never made one red cent that I had spent back. I call a few months later to get my money back that had to explain to them which program I was referring to and they said they had no record of my name or purchase. Do not do this, it is a scam.

I am looking for work at home envelope stuffing or assembly.?
I want it to cost very little or nothing.
DON"T DO IT!!! PLEASE!
I tried that mess years ago and nothing. It's a waste of time and money. You sign up (which requires a fee) and they send you a booklet with all these companies and what you can do and what you can make and you have to send the companies $ to get started for the kit and you never receive anything. I wish groups like answers was around when I wasted my time and $. Look into something else. I'm an Independent Jewelry Consultant and I love it.

Avoid falling victim to a work at home scam by recognizing the following warning signs in job advertisements:
•Boasts no experience necessary
•Promises easy money and huge part-time earnings
•Promotes having “inside” business information
•Asks you to purchase products or instructions before getting “hired”
Outcomes of a Work at Home Scam
Protect yourself from tempting work-at-home promotions that offer exaggerated benefits by being informed of the outcomes. The outcomes of work at home scams include: a waste of money, time, reputation, and morale.
Victims of work at home scams have reported losses ranging from to ,000. Although the money loss may be recovered, the countless hours that you spend on unfruitful projects can’t. You may also end up selling nonexistent services and poor products to your customers, making yourself vulnerable to charges of fraudulent practices.
Types of Work at Home Scams
•Assembly Jobs: Involves investing hundreds of dollars to buy instructions and materials to produce crafts and signs for a potential company. After producing the products, the company may refuse to buy your products because it doesn’t meet their standards.
•Multi-Level Marketing (MLM): Requires you to recruit new people to sell a scammer's products or services. You often end up making close to nothing when the direct sales system crashes.
•Stuffing Envelopes: Tricks people into believing they can make or per envelope they stuff. If you apply, you may end up receiving promotional material asking you to buy instructions on how to get rich quick. The instruction will show you how to post similar job ads for stuffing envelopes.
•Online Businesses: Advertises how you can start your own online business and start making money fast. If you apply you will be asked to purchase a pointless guide to work-at-home jobs.
•Processing Claims: Deceives you into thinking that you can make hundreds of dollars a week by processing insurance claims for health care providers. Asks you to pay for training and to buy equipment and software in order to get started.
The best way to protect yourself from work at home scams is by not applying and staying informed of the outcomes. Remember there’s no easy way to make money. Every start up business and career requires hard work, resources, and luck.
The Truth Behind Nigerian Scams
•Emerged in the early 1980s under consecutive governments of Nigeria.
•Constitutes the 3rd to the 5th largest industry in Nigeria.
•May be also referred to as an advanced fee fraud, 419 fraud, The Nigerian Connection, and 419 – a section of the criminal code of Nigeria
•Authorities often don’t recover the cash raked in from victims.
•Perpetrators are often West Africans, predominantly Nigerians, who work from Nigeria and abroad.
•Nigerian scams remain a confidence fraud, not a cyber crime, tapping into all avenues of communications.
How Nigerian Scams Work
The potential victim of a Nigerian scam receives a letter via spam, fax, or mail. The letter requests the recipient to aid in laundering money out of the country or another illegal job in return for a huge sum of money. Many variations of the Nigerian scam letter exists, but most request a small amount of money to help transfer an incredible amount of wealth in return for a substantial monetary award.
However, if the recipient chooses to pay the upfront fee to help transfer the money. The recipient will often receive another request for a transfer fee with a promise of even more cash. This continues until the recipient runs out of money or the scammer moves on to fresh bait.
Some scammers may even request your personal information, like your bank account or credit card number, so they can transfer the non-existent cash award to you, making it important to know that whenever you give your personal information online or over the phone you open yourself to the possibilities of falling victim to identity theft, credit card fraud, insurance fraud, internet fraud, and more scams. So, take the extra step to protect your personal information and discard Nigerian scam letters and other unsolicited emails, services, and requests.
Recipients of Nigerian Scams
If you receive a Nigerian scam letter through any means of communication, you should do the following:
•Discard the letter and don’t respond
•Post a complaint to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) or www.ic3.gov/
•File a complaint to the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at www.efccnigeria.org/, if you’ve lost money
•Write a letter to the email provider of the scammer at the abuse address, if you received the scam through your free email provider. Remember to include the letter you’ve received plus its headers and subject line in the complaint.
