Is Pacific Brochures (Envelope stuffing) company legit?
I am desperately looking for a work from home job and just got sick and tired of falling for many scams. I came across a website called Pacificbrochures.com. It's basically an envelope stuffing job that pays $1 for every envelope stuffed. They charge a sign up fee of $35 and once you complete 100 envelopes, they reimburse that $35 sign up fee. On their website, they have two seals. One is for a secured site to collect a payment and the other is with Better Internet Group. They even have the contact information with phone number, address as well as an email address that is associated with that company. I was able to call the 800# and speak to a live representative. I spoke to two different people and they gave me the information I was looking for, however, they didn't seem very professional. So, that made me wonder, are they legit.....
I Thank you so much for providing me with a trust worthy answer.
This is another scam. Why are they charging you $35 if they are simply going to reimburse it in the first place. I honestly do not know of any legitimate envelope stuffing jobs that really pay people to do this from home. Please do not fall for this scam. I have never heard of the Better Internet Bureau but I have heard of the Better Business Bureau. I would suspect that no legitimate reporting agency would stand behind this company and that is why they have these unknown companies that any website could get a seal from if they pay a certain fee. The testimonials on their home page could have been written by anyone or even the company itself to deceive people because there is no way of proving that they are real people who left those comments and when they left them. I just made a video today about some legitimate companies that actually pay people to work from home that you can watch here.
These sites are BS, anyone with a computer and internet serive can post anything they want. I don't work with Pacific Brochures but I am looking into it. I was really suprised that they do have live people who ANSWER THE PHONE. In all my years of looking I have never found that. I also know they have zero complaints with the attorney general, another plus. I think Im going to give it a shot and see what happens. If it does not work, Ill get my money back, they have a 60 day refund policy. It is funny the other person who answered the question goes on and on how it is a scam but is not signed up with them. At the very end we are lucky enough that she give us HER work from home opportunities that are not a scam. Give me a break!

This company is not listed on any legitimate work at home job websites for a reason! Please do not get scammed and send this company money like others have.
Sarah, Pacific Brochures is one of the biggest scams on the internet. In short, they are very unprofessional, they won't return you calls, they don't answer emails and they don't do what they say. I signed up and was told to expect between 700 and 1000 envelopes to stuff each week, twice. When you get the information you will find out you have to advertise for your self if you expect to receive any envelopes to stuff. They give you the impression they are going to send you boxes of envelopes to stuff but that is not the case. I waited 58 of the 60 days of the "Guaranteed money back warranty" and never received one, not one, envelope. I didn't run any ads of my own just to test their ligitimacy. I couldn't find the original website where I ordered the information and after two phone calls and two emails I've still not receiveda response. I've returned the material but I'm skeptical that I'll ever see my $35.00 refund. Bottom line the old addage is still true; "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." I'd stay away from these people.
I have been looking for this type of work for YEARS, and I have not found any legit companies yet. I went to this site http://www.ripoffreport.com and found several negative reports about this company. Check it out. Hope this helps.
i,m familiar with home work opportunities as i have a little mail order bi z i do i get offers all the time general rule if it sounds too good to be true it usually is i,m starting up wiyh them and so far so good i,ll know more in a few weeks
The BBB has been reporting this company has shut down, for some time now... unfortunately, shady people who run these type operations will re-emerge with a new scheme to pull. I would hope that people would wake up and realize that envelope stuffing is an old scam that pre-dates the internet. It came about in the 1920's, during the Great Depression. Let's be real here folks! No one is going to pay you money to stuff envelopes, mail brochures, staple booklets or process emails. An envelope stuffing machine can be had for less than 1k an it can process envelopes / mailings / booklets at a far greater speed and much more efficiently, than any human. If money was to be made handling mailings, we would ALL be doing it! The only person who makes any money is the scammer(s) themselves. First, they get that bogus start-up fee from you. Next, they con you into paying for all the postage. These scammers are laughing all the way to the bank! As far as these people having live operators, they don't. Your calls most likely went to a cell phone or their home phone. It sure didn't go to an actual business because they don't have one. Their address was a rental mail box! Please people, do your research and don't be a victim! Stop making criminals rich!
