FTC, Courts Shut Down Envelope-Stuffing Scam

The FTC has gotten a district court to shut down an envelope-stuffing operation that promised consumers they could make thousands of dollars sruffing envelopes from the comfort of their own home.

According to the FTC’s complaint, Louis Salatto and Global US Resources bought classified ads in local newspapers that promised weekly earnings ranging from $1,200 to $4,400.

Consumers who paid the up-front fee did not receive the materials they needed to do the envelope stuffing, nor the income promised, nor the refund that Salatto said they could get upon request.

The court order freezes the allegedly illegal tactics of Salatto and Global US Resources and freezes their assets while the FTC seeks a permanent order.
