Generally this type of thing is a scam, especially if they want money from you "for mailing supplies and training materials" commonly. Think on it - they are not in the business to make you rich, and with modern printers that print/fold/insert and stamp for a penny or two an item, they are not going to mail brochures out to you to mail out and pay you anything significant for it. One such scam offers ¢10/item mailed - the trap is YOU have to provide the postage at forty-something cents per item. LocalMailing.com claims on their website that they pay you $4 per brochure mailed in their provided pre-addressed and stamped envelopes -

why would they pay that much to you when commercially a printer/mailer would do it for probably $1 or less including postage ?.


Google the company name along with the word "complaints" and see how many ripoff type reports there are on tit - also check the FTC.gov site and BBB - here are links to warning alert from BBB and the FTC on this type company -
