Is Maxwell Gates Enterprises a scam? Yes! Let me explain.

The Staple Books Scam.


How do I know this is a scam? 15 years ago, this scam was only $20 and I have a rule, if it’s only $20 – get it!

This scam is run 2 ways, they may only send you one of the two way, but I’m going to tell you both.

The letter you received (or one like it)

The first scam: Mailing the “Get Credit Now” booklet.

Here’s what happens.
1) You send MGE $49 of your hard earned bucks.
2) They send you the Manual, you also receive one VERY expensive stapler, and the information you’ll need to send out.
3) You open the manual and start to read.
The manual tells you how to create the scam. The manual tells you how to advertise, where to get mailing lists, whom to target.
You are told to copy the information, run the ads and as people send you checks, cash and money orders you start sending them out the manuals.
4)But they say “We’ll Pay” – get paid before you send anything out?
They don’t lie when they tell you you will be paid before you mail out any of the packets. They also tell you that you will only need to staple as many packets that you need to mail for them and that’s the truth, if you never advertise, you’ll never send anything out.

Keep reading there’s more to these scams.

The second scam: How to RUN this scam.

Here’s what happens.
1) You send MGE $49 of your hard earned bucks.
2) They send you the Manual, which btw, isn’t going to be stapled together – but we’ll get to that in a minute. You also receive a stapler – one VERY expensive stapler I may add. And that’s all you need!
3) You open the manual and start to read.
The manual tells you how to create the same scam you have just fallen for. The manual tells you how to advertise, where to get mailing lists, whom to target. It’s not stapled together so you can make copies and run the same scam.
4)But they say “We’ll Pay” get paid before you send anything out?
They do say that they will pay you and I’m pretty sure if you want to court on that you’d win and get your $49 bucks back. Of course it will cost you about $100 in small claims court fees and they are betting that since its only 49 bucks and you won’t want to admit you were that stupid, you won’t take them to court.
They don’t lie when they tell you you will be paid before you mail out any of the packets. They also tell you that you will only need to staple as many packets that you need to mail for them.

I am on every target list that scammers use. I’m on every mailing list, every new scammer is going to get my name/address and send me their form letter. I on all those mailing and email lists because I constantly look for online jobs so I can report on them and keep people from falling for these type of scams.

I know you’re saying but, but, but. Why don’t people just get their money back? Do you really think they are going to send you your money back? You send them a check, they now have your checking account number. There’s a good chance that your checking account is now empty. Or you sent them cash, so what you have proof of delivery, who are you going to whine too? Or you sent them a money order, how do you plan to stop payment on that?

Ask yourself a few questions:
How did they randomly get your name for this?
How do they know you’re responsible enough to actually send out those booklets?
If you owned this company would you pay a perfect stranger $20 to staple one 17 page booklet? And if you did, would you pay them BEFORE they shipped the booklets? I don’t know about you, but I’d staple booklets for $5 a booklet if I could do 50 to 100 booklets a week. Wouldn’t you? Doesn’t $20 seem a little extreme?

Reread the twp page letter again, everything I say makes sense, doesn’t it.
