Question DetailsAsked on 1/20/2018

Is to be trusted?

There was an ad in the Lakeland Ledger, from Advanced They offer the opportunity to work at home, mailing brochures. Stating you can make $1000.00 a week. Claiming to be in business since 2001. Just wanting to be sure it isn’t a scam.

Highly unlikely - almost all these work at home companies are scams in one form or another - a pyramid scheme, just trying to get your personal information (like asking for your checking account number so they can direct deposit your earnings, for instance), or get you on board then charge you for "mailing supplies", "address lists", etc. Basically, unless you have a marketable work-at-home skill already, and YOU go out to locate clients to perform that service for, you can pretty much count on work-at-home ads being scams of one sort or another.
If you think a legitmate company will pay people $1 or $2 per mailed item you have another think coming, when you can have a commercial printer use automated machinery to print, fold and seal or stuff, address, bulk mailing rate carrier presort and stamp, and mail ad letters and such at under the price of a normal first class stamp each. Here are a few links to similar questions (not same company but same game) and a couple of FTC warninsg on this FYI:
