The United States Federal Trade Commission reports that companies that claim to pay employees to pay envelopes at home are very likely scammers. Moreover, the FBI warns against potential identity theft when sending personal information to apply to such offers.
These schemes often try to build an expanding network of promoters by promising applicants more money when they recruit their friends and family. As such, they are able to charge more people in application fees while not paying them back. The only one to make any profit is the criminal who started the fraud scheme. Victims of envelope stuffing schemes can contact the FTC, the Attorney General's Office or their local postal inspectors to file a complaint.
