Is this job stuffing and mailing envelopes at a company called Hillcrest Publishing a scam?
I found the ad in the PennySaver magazine here in Antioch, California. I want to know if it is a work at home scam or not? The address is 235 Apollo Beach STE 307 Apollo beach, FL 33572

There is NO such thing as a legitimate at home stuffing and mailing job. These are all scams that ask you to pay upfront but there is NO job and you never hear from them again... More

Yes. Any job that offers you to stuff envelopes working at home is a scam. You can google it and read all about it. They ask you to send a deposit and then you never hear from them again. It's usually a small deposit amount but stuffing and mailing envelopes is not legit.

I have read of this kind of scam. The key to anything is...if they ask you for $$ upfront...then it is a scam. Don't pay for work...they should pay you. Check this out on Snopes.com Type in job stuffing and mailing envelopes and it should come up with some answer for you.
