At Home Publishing

I got my materials within a couple weeks of ordering, so I have no complaint with that. After carefully reading the materials, it seemed workable to print some flyers, try a classified ad, and see what might happen. They say they will also pay for email messages that people send us. The procedure, if you read it carefully, is to put up the flyers, (or place an ad), wait to get self-addressed, stamped envelopes from people in the mail, send out a letter with further details in the self-addressed envelope, then send proof of the self-addressed envelope you send, in order to get paid. They pulled no punches about that it would take some work and perseverance to get off the ground with it. That sounds reasonable, so far.
They say to send proof of the self-addressed envelope we would receive from the people inquiring, to get the $2. per envelope promised. Has anyone done this? If we sent the letter to the person who mailed us, then obviously you'd have to photcopy the envelope for proof, because the self-addressed envelope has to be used to send the letter to the person. Has anyone had success, even a little, at getting paid, and what did you send the company for proof? I'm going to hold back judgement until I see (a)people responding to my flyer/ad, b)whether anyone else has gotten paid. I also have emailed them with the above question about how to send the proof, and have gotten no response, so far.

I am a single mother of two and struggling to find a job.I usually do not do the ""at home work"" but decided to give ""At Home Publishing"" a try. I sent my money order out for forty dollars and never received anything. When I called the lady tells me that the ""owner"" is never in the office and to e-mail him. I have sent out numerous e-mail, not one response did I get! I have no refund nor materials and I get the run around! I am outraged that this company had the nerve to even have a fake receptionist telling me that my money would be refunded. This is a crime! to take peoples money upon false pretenses! I will never in life trust any online,at home work again. This A$%holes are getting rich off of us!!!!!

I sent my registration in under the impression of being able to work from home and start getting back on my feet. I am in a tough time right now as with most of America right now. However, I did finally recieve the ""materials"" for the job. It does require you to set out flyers with your name and address. I have children and will not post out flyers to unknown strangers with my address. They do not include this information in their advert that your address is to be used.
i was under the impression that materials (advertisements) were sent to you and you basically organized them and placed in envelopes for the company. This is not the case. You will spend considerable time driving and trying to find some one who will allow flyers.
I have asked for a full refund. I have just recently done that and once I hear back I will post allowing everyone to know if I was refunded. Honestly, I do not expect them to, im sure some excuse will be made in order to not have to refund. Be very cautious when having to send money to ANY online or home business.

I did the same thing then i looked them up on the internet found a number called it and the number gave an email address i emailed and for the past two weeks we have been emailing back and for and they sent me an email today (9-2-09) that i should getting my supplies any day now
I ASSUME NOT, AS THE NUMBER'S LISTED ON THIS PAGE: 702-902-3223.
WHEN I SAW THEIR ADV. IN HOME BUSINESS MAGAZINE (also online at: http://hbcmagazine.com/default.aspx - THINK I'LL ASK THEM IF THEY'VE HAD ANY POS. FEEDBACK ON A CO. OR JUST TAKE ANYONE'S MONEY THAT WANTS TO PLACE AN ADV) AMONGST YET MORE ONLINE SCAM ADS - I ASSUMED THIS WAS BEYOND TOO GOOD TO BE ANYTHING BUT ABSURD. WHO WOULD PAY MORE THAN PENNIES PER ENVELOPE, AND THERE'S NO WAY FOR US TO TRACK THE SALES YOUR ENVELOPE PRODUCED, WHICH THEY WOULDN'T REALLY DO.
WHEN I HAD A RETAIL STORE AND NEEDED MAILERS SENT, I HAD MY HOUSE-KEEPER OR A FRIEND'S TEENAGER PICK UP THE MATERIALS, AND PAID A SMALL BULK FEE, OR GAVE A HIGHER STORE CREDIT ALLOWANCE.
I AM NOW ILL, AND STILL DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR LEGITIMATE ONLINE/AT HOME WORK. I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED FOR A TOTAL OF $1000 LAST YEAR ON THIS, ONLY HALF OF WHICH I'VE GOTTEN BACK TO DATE.
GLAD I FOUND YOUR REVIEWS ON THIS COMPANY. WONDER IF THE FTC OR BBB ACTUALLY GIVES ANY AT HOME BUSINESSES POS. REVIEWS FROM THEM?
I saw the ad for "At Home Publishing" and it looked perfect for my situation. Too perfect. My question for you is if you ever got your materials and if you have started making the money they claim. Be it $250.00 or more. All the reviews showed that they cashed peoples checks but materials never came. No one posted anything positive or that the materials came soon, late or never. Please give me your input so I can make an informed decision
