I recently checked out an ad for working at home. I called and got a voicemail asking to leave your name and address to receive information. I did. I received a letter describing how it all works. It said you would make $10 per brochure you sent out. All that was required is you fold, label, attach postage and mail.

You could choose from 4 different amounts of brochures (55,75,95,300). They said they would provide the envelopes, labels, and postage. The letter said there would be absolutely no advertising. They required a one-time computer processing and materials fee. The fee depended on which amount of brochures you chose (55,75,95,etc.). I chose the 95 brochures a week; this was $95 plus $10 shipping fee ($105).

When I received my first batch of brochures,it came with more info and instructions. The info was quite different than the first. It said that you would have to pay each week the same $55, $75, $95 for each batch of brochures and you would be paid $10 on each brochure that they received a sales response to. They said the fee was a one-time fee and you would receive $10 per brochure sent. You receive money when they receive response from the brochure. And postage is only reimbursed on those brochures they receive a response to. This all made me want to ask some questions. When I looked for a phone number there wasn't one; the only phone number was in the newspaper I originally called. There was an email address, so I tried to email them. The email was unable to send because no such address existed.

This made me worry on top of all the discrepencies. So,I looked them up on the internet. This led me to all the others in the same situation. I was very shocked!

I am hoping my report might help other but also myself in getting my money back. I will not be ripped off. I will write this company in hopes that they will send me my money back. Who knows if they will respond; it sure doen't sound like it from reading others testimony. Who knows if the address is even real. Please help me, I am low-income person who can't afford to lose $105. Also, they said the one-time fee would be refunded on my 5th paycheck. If you have any questions, please call or write.

I got the letter in the mail days ago, i decided to do some research and i found out that Georgia home services, Home stuffing, Home stuff, homestuffers are the same company. They share the same phone number 212-946-5422, if you put the number in the BBB they will give you links in all these names. They have offices in Ca, Al, Nm and Tn. My letter have Byron Peterson as a hiring director for this "New envelop stuffing program".

BEWARE!!! do some research first. Thanks to this website i saved 35.00 registration fee.

Hey Karla that number you put in is the same number for Green Productions... And Byron Peterson is also in charge of Maryland Home Services and lots more, so everytime someone sends money to these "Home Based Businesses" they might just be sending money to the same person everytime....

They are not operating out of Florida. This is nationwide.

AUTHOR: Jacqueline - (U.S.A.)

This company is owned and managed by Mr. Mark Shelton, although he may have alleged victims to his possible fraud in Florida, this is not the base. This is nationwide and legistically he has to be held responsible for his own company. The consistent point of origin is Willowbrook, Illinois. Review all information posted under Keyword: Financial Resouces Unlimited, Inc. You will not currently find any complaints from Florida. This is not to invalidate any victim from Florida, but the Willobrook Post Master has to be informed, and of coarse U.S. Postal Inspectors online at: www.usps.com.

These assholes are operating out of Brandon, FL. I was also interested and received the letter yesterday but I have been researching and found out about their fraudulent activity. Hopefully this info helps some of you out.

I've been ripped-off by John Craig and Robert Hanncock Home Stuffers and all aliases attatched.

AUTHOR: Jacqueline - (U.S.A.)

212-654-3895 or www.usps.com for post office location

Your problem is similiar to mine. I've been ripped-off by John Craig and Robert Hanncock Home Stuffers and all aliases attatched. Because you wereby an alleged mail fraud business, from sllowbrook, you would have to contact their postmaster.

The U.S. Government Post Office Main 212-654-3895 can send you in the right direction. To avoid a high phone bill, you can go through the zip code locater, and find post offices at www.usps.com.

BBB Complaints is at 330 North Wabash Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611 312-832-0500 and it couldn't hurt to contact your own BBB. They may have a case file on this company.

Your local post office can tell you which Postal Inspector division to file your complaint form with. This may all seem tedious, but this will never end, if we don't file those reports. If we don't follow these procedures, no one will take us seriously. Hope this helps.
