Legit Email Processing Jobs Do Not Exist!

August 3, 2019

I’m just going to save you from reading this whole article unless you really want to, legit email processing jobs (with or without investment) DO NOT EXIST and are just out to scam you out of your money.

I’m going to prove it to you below, but know this – A company is NOT going to pay you a SHIT TON of money for something they can easily automate or do in-house for pennies.

This “process emails from home job” is a variation of the Work From Home Stuffing Envelopes Scam that started during the great depression in the 1920’s.

legit email processing jobs

BBB & FTC Warn about the stuffing envelopes scam – Email Processing Jobs are the same!

Think about it logically for a second, before I get into the details.  WHY would a company pay you $5.00 or even $0.50 to send emails for them?

I PERSONALLY own multiple businesses and my emails are 100% automated:

  • Sign up for my email list? You’re going to get automatically sent my free guide on affiliate marketing AND a 10-15 day follow up sequence without my lifting a finger.
  • Buy a product from one of my eCommerce stores – the email with your receipt & shipping info are 100% hands free.
  • Request a REFUND of one of my products? It goes into a queue for my helpdesk who handle it for me at a fair HOURLY rate.

There is not a single business on the PLANET that’s going to pay you $250 a day, $7,750 per Month, and $93,000 per YEAR for sending emails on their behalf.

Want to know how the email processing scam works?

 1.) You Come Across an Ad Telling you how to make money processing emails for $25.00 per email ‘processed’.

You come across a video review, or perhaps an ad online or in a forum.

  • It claims you can earn $25.00 (or more) for every email you process, with unlimited potential to earn!
  • No experience is required, AND they promise you executive level paychecks doing something that requires absolutely zero skill!
  • That’s like flipping burgers for $95k per year, it’s just not going to happen!

Something seems fishy here..but okay, let’s continue anyways and give it a try!

Here’s info I took from one of their sites, LOL – such BS!!

Emails Process Per Day Amount you Make per Email 100% Guaranteed Daily Income
5 $25.00 $125
10 $25.00 $250
25 $25.00 $625
30 $25.00 $750
50 $25.00 $1250

2.) You pay your “activation fee”

You sent in your payment (also $25.00, or whatever the ammount they claim you can earn) and you’re ready to receive your assignments! (Who do you think got that $25.00 and is now processing YOUR email?)

3.) Time to get processing emails…or is it?

So you get your information email or package and it’s NOT what you think.  You’re given information on how to post ADS online – just like the one you responded to and paid $25.00 to start the “job”.

You’ll be taught how to spam in forums, make fake videos, post fliers around your neighborhood, post on social media, craigslist  using templates just like this below, or whateer one got you to think and search online for processing emails online jobs.

YEP – 100% of the emails you PROCESS are because of ads you post online, via facebook, craigslist, spamming forums, even youtube videos.

Here’s how you’ll now be getting emails to “process”

  1. Step 1: You post ads, spam forums, make YouTube Videos telling people how to make $25.00 for every email they process (sound familiar?)
  2. Step 2: Somebody see’s the ad, they possibly sign up and pay YOU $25.00.  Now you need to process THEIR email, and send them info on how to post ads themselves.
  3. This is a Total Pyramid Scheme, 100% BULLshit and very much a scam.

Think about it for a second.

The person you just paid $25.00 to is now ‘processing’ YOUR email for their $25.00 – they’re not just sitting around getting rich ‘processing emails’, they’re spamming forums with ads, posting this crap on FaceBook, doing fake YouTube reviews showing how much money they’re making.

Money does NOT simply fall out of the sky here, you’re not given a list of emails to process for companies that need the extra help.  You’re given instructions on how to post ads and deceive people, just like what you fell for!

Sorry, you just got suckered out of $25.00, but count your blessing – it could have been worse.

Wikipedia warns of this scam and others like it! (See the red text below)

Common types of work found in work-at-home schemes include:

  • Stuffing envelopes.[2] The victim sees a flyer advertising a job stuffing envelopes, with “up to 1,000 envelopes a week that you can stuff… with postage and address already affixed!”, offering a payment of $1–2 per envelope. To apply for the job, the victim is required to send a self-addressed stamped envelope for information and a small processing fee. In return, the victim is sent a template for the flyer they had originally seen; the envelopes they stuff are from other people who answer the flyer, and the payment is the processing fee.
  • Assembly of items of some type, such as crafts, jewellery or medical equipment. The worker is required to pay up front for materials and construction kits, and when they attempt to sell the finished products back to the scheme’s organiser, they are told that the products “don’t meet our specifications”, leaving the worker with assembled products and no buyer.
  • Processing medical claims. The worker pays several hundred dollars for medical billing software, but will later discover that most medical clinics process their own bills, outsource their billing to established firms rather than individuals, or have stricter requirements than the purchased software can provide.
  • Forum spamming. Usually advertised as some variant of “email processing”, the worker is simply given instructions on spamming online forums, and told they can make money by selling these same instructions online.
  • Sales of a product or service that is difficult or impossible to sell. This is often done in the form of a pyramid scheme.

I have good news, making money online is a real thing! AND – the best part?  It’s MUCH more lucrative and for many (including myself), is really a full time, online business!

You see this blog here? (The one you’re reading this review on)? I run it, and make money with it daily as an AFFILIATE for many programs that teach people, like you, how to REALLY make money online.

I try to be 100% upfront and honest about everything I do on it. (Which is why I warn you to avoid these types of programs, instead of giving them glowing recomendations)

Feel free to google me, Jeff Lenney, you’ll find tons of good things about me, and the success people have had following what I teach!

Anyways, There’s an amazing program I know of, it’s 100% legit and you can make MUCH more than these silly scams pay you.

Free Online Training, how to Build Your Business Online from Nothing…

Don’t mind the flashiness of the video, it may seem too good to be true, he’s the real deal and I would not recommend him otherwise.

I’ve known John Crestani for a couple of years now, I’ve taken the training myself.

This is NOT a job, it’s simply an education into the world of affiliate marketing, and how you can use it to TRULY quit your day job.  It’s not going to happen overnight, and it will take some work, but it’s a very nice way to make a living, working for yourself.  I’ve seen people BRAND NEW to the internet make money with this EXACT training.  Are you next?

Talk soon,

  • I fell for the $25 EPS trip myself about 10 years ago. Once I realized how I’d been played, I had to take a hard look at whether or not I was going to try to get my $ back (& likely more) by doing the same thing to other suckers. In the end, I decided not to do so. Additionally, all of the “advertising” that you’d have to do to reel in the $25 PayPal payments just seemed like away too much effort, LoL!

    • Certainly, here’s the revised text with a more confident tone:

      No worries, it happens! Appreciate your update, Cathy, and I’m pleased to hear you made the right choice! 🙂

    Thanks for the article on scam jobs Jeff.

    In my 5-7 years of trying to find legit WFH opps, I have fallen or almost fallen for most of the ones that you’ve listed. 😔 So you know I’ve been a victim of scams, fraud and a lot of ill-willed people 😤 lost multiple bank accounts 😤 lost my only source of income 😤 lost my families respect 😤 and now my physical and mental health are deteriorating FAST! 🤕😰😤

    Now I co-own an affiliate email marketing program.

    It’s been a very hard 1st year. Spent almost 500 usd of my families savings to start the site. Only earned 200usd, which was reinvested in the site. My site will be a year old in January 2020. 😔

    Last week I told my team commander I was going to take a week to work on my own project.

    I finally have a FREE Wix site, that I only have a few more details to add.

    I love my Wix site which I will be using to boost my email marketing site (at least until it can become self-sufficient).

    Lesson: sometimes we have to go through hell in order to truly see our own potential.

    Keep up your great HONEST blogging! 😍

  • Wow I am shocked, you are saying that email processing is a scam and blatantly being disrespectful to your viewers so you can then redirect them to John Crestani’s internet marketing optin (a Clickbank product email optin). Very clever and also very dumb, I have personally made thousands processing legitimate emails through my email list over the last 15 years, are you saying that anyone who reads comments on your page is dumb? Wow you really are a true braindead moron Jeff! DO not trust this person, Jeff is scamming you by brainwashing your mind in a sad attempt to get you to a Clickbank email optin to make money from you. A total scam!

  • Thank you Jeff. I thought as much about the email processing. I’m looking for a job to work from home. Thanks again.

  • Funny thing is I know there are real online jobs but I figured this one wasn’t n did a little digging. What caught my attention was “sales”. What are they selling? It’s not on the website I just checked so it’s a new form of a ponzu scheme. I shouldn’t have to pay $25 to find out what I will be advertising. Smh

  • MD Sumon Reza says:

    What’s this??I want to a online job. Any job.. Pls give me..

  • Naomi Tamakloe says:

    Thank you so so much for making us aware of this real scam thing! I almost paid today for that damn “email processing” thing but luckily you were here on time to save some cash. Thank you very much; I really appreciate your help

  • Came here to show my husband that email processing IS a scam, and you did not dissapoint. This comments section is awesome, btw!


    Now, I can see how people are interested in Email Processing and that is why some network marketers are jealous of it.

    How can you say that something that is helping people to earn a COOL $25 per invite is a SCAM. Is it because it is SIMPLE??


    You want us to trust you, talking as if you know everything, but how can I trust someone who always Insult others all because they don’t agree with you.


    If you want to proof it yourself, find someone you know personal as a member. Register under him/her. You will see the system will provide that persons details for you to pay the $25 to him/her. That is how it works when you too get someone to register

    All what we need is money, and so far as we received our money IS NOT A SCAM!!!

    • I’m definitely jealous of your pyramid scheme, keep it up, I’m sure you’re making 10’s of dollars per month! 😉


    • Your a crook, someone should tie you up and throw you in the middle of I95 Earnest !

      • I didn’t realize you were an expert on my life and how I should live it. Continue while I take notes.

        Also, the word you want is you’re, not your! 🙄

  • Stinkey Pinky says:

  • Hey jeff this is 2018 just so you know and internet is the most popular thing in this world ….honestly people like you are brainwashing others by claiming everything is a “SCAM” .people like you claiming eveything is a scam” is only called “HATERS” because your hating on the fact that people actually make good money so easy ..you also claim that they are spamming forums ..how is that spamming? Thats called advertising ..and thats part of life.most people hate watching commercials but nothing we could do because part of life and it will always be ther ..EMAIL PROCESSING DO EXIST AND ITS YOUR CHOICE TO PAY FOR THE INSTRUCTIONS JUST LIKE U HAVE TO PAY FOR A CANDY BAR AT STORE…. $25 for instructions actually showed me more knowledge about things and is worth buying …THINK ABOUT IT GETTING A JOB IN LIFE IS NOT FREE IN THIS WORLD TODAY …NOTHING COMES FREE KNOW DAYS ..YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR WHAT YOU WANT … What is a pryamid schem lol the way it works is like group of people in a circle handing $25 to each other .everytime it goes around in group of circle it doubles triples your money and everyone makea money ..SMARTEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY AND PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD ARE HATING ON THE FACT THAT OTHERS MAKE BETTER MONEY THAN THEM

    • Mr. Doe, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

      At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.

      Everyone reading this is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    • Jeffrey David Raphael says:

      What you described is a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal. Pyramid schemes are illegal because there is no actual product.

  • Charlesbenny says:

    Thanks so much Jeff… Someone started talking-to me about that crap today, but I decided to do my finding first… And here I am, reading this from you.

    Thanks so much once again.

  • Cheryl Paoletti says:

    I see advertisements for these in many Facebook work at home groups and I’m glad I never fell for them.

  • Mr. Jeff God really bless you I was about paying a $25 tonight when I saw this. Not knowing I was about to be scammed again.

  • Wendeleon says:

    • I think you need to re-read this post again, especially the big bold title at the top that says email processing jobs DO NOT EXIST. 🙂




    • Miss Walker, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this blog is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  • Andre Graham says:
