HomeStuffers And/or Wana Wagner - Ripoff Strikes Again -Other reports have noted Catherine Rich but Wana Wagner signed my certified mail receipt San Diego California

*Consumer Suggestion: Stopping this fraud is completely up to you!

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I started searching the web after the promised materials had not arrived and stumbled onto your website.

I don't know how anyone else may feel, but I take exception to false advertisement. Once payment has been received for promised merchandise, it becomes the obligation of the business to either deliver the merchandise or refund the original payment.

I read the ad for HomeStuffers and remitted the $45 start up fee along with the application as requested by the ad. The start up fee was supposed to defray the initial cost of the materials originally sent to the applicant.

The mailing address noted on my certified returned receipt was P.O. Box 270258, San Diego, CA 92198. The money order was mailed on November 20, 2004 and signed for by Wana Wagner on November 27, 2004. The current date is December 31, 2004, and nothing has arrived in the mail, from UPS, or FedEx from HomeStuffers aka Wana Wagner aka Catherine Rich.

Using the services of the U S Post Office for false advertisement and to accept money under false conditions constitutes mail fraud, in my opinion. I agree, this activity needs to be stopped!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Stopping this fraud is completely up to you!

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

This is not false advertising, it's fraud. There was never any intention to send you anything at all. And, they certainly won't be giving you a refund!

If you use a money order to pay, there is no way to reverse the charges, like with a credit card. Your money is gone. Or, more accurately, your money is in their pockets.

So, how can people prevent this type of thing from happening to them?

That's easy. When you find something like this, sit down and think about it for a moment. Ask yourself these simple questions.

1-Why would somebody pay me $10 to stuff an envelope? Does the job make sense?
2-Do you know anybody who earns a living stuffing envelopes? Friends, relatives?
3-Why would they select you? For $1000 a week, they could get college graduates!

Anybody can write a phony ad. Look how easy it is. Anybody can pay a few bucks to place it in the newspaper. That does not mean it is real.

Sharpen pencils at home!
We pay $8 for each pencil you sharpen!
Just think, you can get $8,000 if you sharpen 1,000 pencils.
Plus, we send you a FREE sharpener with your first order.
That's right, people all over the world need sharp pencils.
And, they'll pay you good money to provide them.
So, start today!
We'll even throw in a free supply of big erasers if you act now!

Look how stupid this ad is? But, all I'd need to do is put it in the newspaper. I guarantee somebody would send me free money.

So, what's that tell you? Fraud is out there. It's everywhere. Just like dirt.

It's up to you to stay clean. It's up to you to keep fraud out of your life.

You have the power to stop fraud. Just STOP sending them money.

Then, I guarantee that the crooks won't put the ads in the paper anymore.

The next time you get $20, donate it to the people who run this site. Then, come here and read all the fraud pages. Learn what to look for. Then, you'll never have to waste your money on fraud ever again.

Learn about fraud before it gets you.
