You sign up and get mail. It's business fliers and some magazine subscriptions. You enter each piece daily and are paid by the piece. This is not an opportunity you could do full time and live off of, but it could be extra money or spending money. The longer you are with a company and enter in mail correctly, the more pieces you will recieve which in turn gives you more money.

Mail decoys or Mail monitors are used by companies to test the mail marketing in certain areas. They check to see what the postal service is like in different areas... such as will they deliver a promotional ad on time, what condition will the mail arrive in. They test it because they spend lots of money on their campaigns.

US Monitor and Hauser were the companies recommended to me. I googled and found their websites, but as I said, I never heard back, even to be told "no thanks"

I did the first link and it told me they had a place for me and took me to a contract.

It is $.25 per piece you rcv and enter on-line. You have to keep every piece for 6 months and they will occasionally ask for a specific piece to be sent to them (you get $.50 and postage expense when this happens)

Has anyone received calls for this? Or anyone currently doing this?

Apparently, way back in April, I submitted an application. They just called me today, and are going to "test" me. (Send me some mail pieces, and have me report on them).

I'm just wondering your opinions, if you do it.

Thanks!

I did it...it was not worth my time. You have to enter the name of the item/magazine plus two more lines with numbers and letters combined then you have to enter your name and password on each of them. It took a few minutes for each then I never got a paycheck until I requested it. After an email asking why I didn't enter a piece of mail. It was only like 20.00 after six months. I just got an email from them today saying I haven't logged in, in the past 4 months and they wanted to see if I had moved or just decided to stop entering mail.

I was a mail decoy for a few years about 4 years ago. It was through Hauser. I think they got too big too fast and customer service fell through. I was making about 20-35 a month being a mail decoy. It does start out slow and gradually increases. Their accounts payable was an old retired man that had no customer service skills. That is why I quit.

I work for US Monitor, so if anyone has any questions I may be able to help.

I love my job, I make about $40-$50 a month, not much but it's easy money and I use these for "play money" for me and the kids!!

I have been working with US Monitor for about 2 years now. I average about $20-25/month, getting about 2-5 mail pieces a day. It is part of my daily routine. Come home from work, cook and go online and enter mail and read AFC.
