Don’t because you are taken for a ride.
What is mail order business?
Mail-order business, also called as direct-mail marketing, is a method of selling in which the seller’s offer is made through mass mailing of a circular or catalog or through an advertisement pamphlet placed in a newspaper or magazine and in which the buyer places an order by mail, and the goods delivered by mail.
The concept seems to be too good to be true. But the truth is, there is hardly any real business done through direct mail marketing or business.
What happens in envelope stuffing or mailorder business?
The so called seller (Actually a CON) will give advertisement in newspaper, magazine or on Online Ad postings website. Looking so lucrative and easy, you reply to the ad. The advertiser will ask self addressed stamp envelope mailed to their address. here are 2 advertisements from olx and quickr respectively for your reference. Click the image to enlarge
The advertiser may ask for your Mobile number for communication. In any case, once you send your contact details the advertiser will send you an envelope comprising of low quality 10 to 15 pages book on health tips or home-remedies for common diseases (mostly copy pasted from internet) and 3 page interesting catalog or 3 page colorful circular.
This circular will have attractive and descriptive content that will pull you towards the business. The entire content will stress you to buy their MOB Kit (mobileorderbusiness kit) and how this MOB will change your life with little investment. You will be asked to send self addressed stamp envelope along with DD or cheque for the kit. Usually this price should be the requirement of the con. This can be from Rs 500 to Rs 5,000.
Once you send the envelope with your address and money in the form of DD or cheque, you will again receive another envelope with same 3 page circulars that you got in first mail. Now you will understand the business. This new 3 page circular will have fill in the blanks on top, middle, side and bottom of the circular content.
Wherever there is blank the advertiser will ask you to put your name and address with your own required money and advertise in newspapers, magazines and online as he did. When you advertise, you will get an inquiry. Who ever inquires, now you send the circulars asking them to buy MOB kit and when you get the money, that’s your income.
For example, responding to the first advertiser you sent him Rs 1000. Now you will send the circular with your name and address but the amount will be 1,500 or less. This seems to be small with a single person, but in volume it makes heck lot of money. This is nothing but money circulation without proper Good or Service and definitely comes under scrutiny.
As you already have invested your time and money into it, in order to get your money back, you may want to try it with one or 2 customers and let it go. But, that’s not nice. This is a vicious circle. It’s up to you to decide.
There are no certain laws to curb this business as there are no complaints registered against these crooks. As the volume of the money looks small dealing with a single person, your defiance to involve in litigation seems justified. Here are few complaints registered online with consumercomplaints portal.
