The way the scam works is: you pay a processing fee and send a self-addressed envelope with $2 in it. The envelope comes back full of flyers that you have to put up all over town.

These flyers are ads for the same “stuffing envelopes” opportunity, asking the participants to send the “processing fee” to the scammers and the self-addressed envelopes to you, along with $2. In those self-addressed envelopes, you send them the same flyers so they can put them up, and so on.

You might make money from people’s response, but you are becoming a scammer yourself.

It is a company that sent my an envelope and the business is called GFK and it’s a so called survey panel. They also sent 2dollars n the envelope making it believable… but when I checked it n the BBB website, the company was NOT on there ! so the address is 5610 Rowland rd. Ste. 160, minnetonka, mn, 55343-9829. The number is 18002556878. Please share more information if you know about them. Thank you
