I said last week that US postal rates had gone up for every
country except Canada. Wrong! The new Canadian rates for 1/2 oz.
to 2.0 oz. are: US$.46, $.52, $.64, and $.72. Mexico is
$.40, $.46, $.66, $.86; other countries are $.60, $1.00, $1.40,
and $1.80. [Peter Ludemann , 7/21/95.]
I also mentioned an Opportunity Judging Group that checks out
advertised services. So I should mention that the Minnesota
Attorney General is suing National Consumer Credit (NCC) over
the HUD refund-locator opportunity, which costs $49-$69 for
an information packet. Minnesota claims that there is little
likelihood of earning $600/week in 3 hours/day.
(The demand for home work is so high that any legitimate
employment or franchise would quickly saturate. Indeed, some of
the scams list companies that advertised a few jobs a decade ago.
(I read that one such still gets 2-3 letters per day.)
You can make good money from home, but not as an employee
or envelope stuffer. Put out your own shingle and sell your
professional services, or subcontract to those who do.
The key is customers, not employers.)
