  2. We INSIST that you communicate with the company before deciding to work for them.
  3. Get all work details to your satisfaction before sending them money for supplies.
  4. Prefer the companies that list a physical address and not just a P.O. Box number.
  5. Also look for a website and a phone number that you can call on.
  6. A customer care number where a customer care representative is available to answer queries about the home based work project is also desired.

Please do NOT send money to mere P.O. Box addresses without conforming legitimacy. We keep investigating these and more work from home offers and would really appreciate your feed back. If you have any experience with working from home making craft items, please tell us.

On a special note:

We have to end this post to by saying that one of the best ways to make an income from sewing is to start a small business set up for yourself. You can start by offering your sewing services to people, or start making your own crafts to sell.

There is plenty of information available on our blog to get you started. Read our guide to a sewing business. We also highly recommend our e-book “the craft income secrets”. It will give you all the information you need to start doing sewing jobs from the comfort of your own home.

    Smoky Mountain hair ties is a scam! Yeah you may get paid a little then they’ll hang up on you and keep your deposit $ and whatever they owe you. Someday they will have to answer to God for this.

    • assembleandearn November 12, 2011 at 11:35 am #

      Thank you for writing in, Naomi. And yes, you could be right. The product assembly companies that are scams do that as well. In order to scam a person they make initial small payments so that the person gets encourages to buy more materials from them and maybe even recommend them to others. Then when they have gotten enough from you, they shut down your payments on one excuse or the other.
      Also, because you got paid in the past, they get to cover up later saying that they are legit because they paid you that one or two times and the reasons for dis-contintuing payment is something like ‘quality issues’.
      I think it also helps them avoid making the refund.
      Please get in touch the with Better Business Bureau immediately if you feel that you have been scammed by Smoky Mountain.
      They will help you resolve your complaint the get your refund back if you are eligible for it. Just go http://www.bbb.org.
      Keep us posted on how it goes.
      Best regards,
      Admin.

    Hello Irene,
    I know you posted this comment a long time back but I just happen to come across some information on the Internet that made me think of the comment you posted here. You were asking about a comany that lets you make men’s ties at home. I did come across this company that says that its a craft assembly company and provides this very kind of work to its home assemblers. This is the information I have so far:

    Loustown, MT 59457
    Phone: 406-538-5130

    I sure hope you get to read this. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi,
    Thank you for writing in. I was reading what you said about coming across a website offering plenty of ways to make money online with grants, claims processing and all that kind of work.
    Well, I would agree with you about the compiled information being compiled together like that being invaluable. Provided the information is genuine.
    It is probably not. These websites are carefully engineered and designed sales copies of scams.
    Let me ask you this. They want a fee to provide you this information, right? Why on earth would they be doing that. If there are ways of making money from the methods that they are suggesting, they should go ahead and make it themselves. Even hire a few more people and make even more money. Why are they claiming to have this great package of making hundreds of dollars each week and then willing to sell these ‘secrets’ for a few dollars?
    Yes, we have all heard the nonsense about how they are only trying to help the fellow home based worker to make money from home. Well, if that is the case, then give it up for free.
    Believe me, it has all been tried. Form filling, insurance claims processor, online data entry, coupons jobs and more along the same lines. It has always come up with zero results. The sales copies of these websites are completely misleading and the information that you get in the end, if it is of any use at all, is completely different than what you thought you were getting.
    Just remember this. There are no secrets for making thousands of dollars from home. And if there are..? they are certainly not selling on the internet for $34.99.

    hehe and i honestly didn’t realize there was another assembly-jobs.com question.. lol hehe

  7. Gizmo Enigma Bubbles February 17, 2009 at 4:27 am #

    I don’t realy know where to put this but either way I hope it helps anyone else wit this in mind.. this isn’t realy a forum based site which is probably for the bestseeing how some people have very stupid questions indeed.. but hey, we all see thing’s in a different light..

    I’ve been looking for some home assembly jobs, and have come acroos a few site’s that wanted me to pay for the list of assembly companie’s.. with this list they would add in information needed on various aspects of working at home and also important information if you wanted to go into busines for yourself.. A particular site Assembly-jobs.com and another I recently found tonight which say’s it has a list of item’s including irs, cash grants info, online business tips an such.. which I think in a whole together would be a very good batch of files for the smart entrupenuer..

    What do you think of this? some of these site’s are basicly cataloging alot of info that takes alot of time to find BY YOURSELF. As soon as i do have the money to spend on this I am going.. it’s some what inaluable since it is all put together in one place.. I wish people knew about this site, you’ve helped me abit an I’m sure have helped others more.. Thank you.

    Like I said I’me looking to work from home and am curious about what you had said in another article about virtual support from home.. are there any USA based companies that hire home based worker’s you would recomend?

    I’ve been wondering if there is a data base dedicated to — how would I put this, lol.. I’m somewhat stumped.. == A list of jobs and there requirment’s needed.. I mean a FULL job list.. Anything and everything. when you go to college you wan tto be a biologist,, you want to be a engineer.. but in reality you go through all this training and end up falling into a job, which it’s positon name isn’t even engineer of whatever you do.. I’m more of the inventor type,, a jack of all trade’s.. I have no prior college degree’s but have studied a few subject’s.. metal, electricity, wood, auto-cad( whihc right outa schooll there are no jobs for, I’m pissed),landscaping.. I went to a high school then vocational school.. The problem is I have the urge but don’t have the money for the schooling and don’t know exaclty what I want to do for a career.. somethign I love.. you can’t help me with that I know.. That’s why I’m asking about the Data base of company type/ job position requirement’s..

    Thanks,
    Gizmo Enigma Bubbles

    also,, about assembly-jobs.com I looked for them in the BBB an the search came up zero..

    Thanks for the information.

  10. Administrator January 15, 2009 at 3:07 pm #

    Hi Irene,
    Thank you for writing back. I am glad that you did. There is no short way to respond to your query but I will try. But I still suggest that for a comprehensive outlook go through the various sections of our website.

    I looked at the website that you mentioned and it looks like another website trying to sell you a list of product assembling companies. There is no mention of any sort of contact information on the website. There is no physical address, phone number or a way of speaking to someone before you buy. These are the first signs for another typical website trying to sell a get rich quick scheme. It is our strong advice to steer clear of companies and websites that refrain from diverging essential information about themselves. This is literally the first step in distinguishing between the genuine and the false offers.

    There are several other websites similar to this one who sell you this kind of information. All these different websites under different names have the same thing in common. They promise hundreds of dollars every week in income and they all sell the same old list of companies.
    Please understand that these websites have no connection whatsoever with the companies contained in their list. The make huge promises of income potential in order to convince you to buy this information from them. Nor will they provide any sort of assistance with the work after thet are done seling their information to you.

    First of all, you do not have to pay anyone to view these companies as they are all listed here for free.
    Secondly, a majority of this listing is in completely unsatisfactory standing with the Better Business Bureau with most of them having a rating of F. The rating of F signifies the lowest ranking that the Better Business Bureau gives to any business on the basis of the credibility and reliability.

    There are perhaps a handful of product and craft making companies that people are actually working for. We have listed them here on this website under Top 5 companies. You can also easily locate the people working for them in some popular forums. But in spite of this, you need to understand that the income potential is limited. Most of the people who do product and craft assembling at home to it for the love of craft making and mostly as a hobby. It is something to be done for fun and not to make a serious income of. Even the Better Business Bureau remarks that they have no records nationwide of anyone having made a substantial amount of money for a sustained period of time doing this kind of work.

    Finally I would like to bring to your notice the other jobs and opportunities that are listed as bonuses on the product assembling website that you mentioned earlier. They are all of the nature that is frowned upon and commonly known as scams by most of the authorities. Please read the following excerpt from the website of the Better Business Bureau.

    “The Better Business Bureau warns against paying up front fees for work-at-home opportunities, which are often described as voice mail retrieval, reading email, stuffing or mailing of envelopes, processing mail, being a home mailer, updating mailing lists, typing labels, home secretarial work, e-commerce at home, or home computer work. The Bureau’s experience is that these are often a variation on a chain letter. Those schemes are regularly shut down by the United States Postal Inspectors. If you are calling to complain about a problem with this company, and the complaint involves one of the opportunities just described, please file your complaint instead with the Postal Inspectors by calling 800-372-8347.
    Other schemes may be described as medical billing opportunities, reviewing movies, reading books, or home assembly of various products.
    How do you find a real job, which allows you to work at home? You can sign up with your state’s employment commission or check out the classified ads. Do not expect to find real jobs that pay good money for easy work to be done at home. The request for an up front fee is a big warning sign. Even if the company is offering a home assembly opportunity or a directory of companies looking for homeworkers, we advise caution before paying any up front fees for any reason. You normally will no more have to pay to work at home than you would to work in an office, if the job is real. Because these types of companies come and go so quickly, the absence of complaints at the Better Business Bureau is not a good indicator that the company is legitimate. The victims may be too embarrassed to complain or the scheme may be structured to make it look like any problems are the fault of the victim.”

    As for the other company that you mentioned by the name of LEPJAC, they also run product assembling company by the name of Over the Arm Purse. The postbox address is listed along with other companies here on this website.
    But they have no record whatsoever with the Better Business Bureau and are highly suspect.

    The company website is Assembly-jobs.com which allows you to download information included in their assembly catalog ( loads of items to make plus an additional listing) with all the bells and whistles but request $39.00 for the purchase.
    Also. I looked up a website for Lepjac Enterprises OAP..no such site and found no factory with this name in Winkleman, Arizona. This is a handbag company. Are they legit.

    Hi Irene,
    Thank you for writing in. I do not have any specific information related to the business of sewing ties at home. But I am going to look it up and post the update if I find any.
    If you let me know the website that you are talking about, I can look in to it and try to find more information about it for you i.e. if it is legitimate or not.

    Do you have any manufacturers that allow you to sew men’s ties at home?
    I know there is one from another website but you have to purchase their $39.00 assembly catalog to find out who it is. I am interested in the making handbags also.

    Thanks
