Assembly Scam

You see a job offer for "Home Based Assembly" to perform sewing or
crafting work from home. The job might require that you make baby clothes,
jewelry, Christmas ornaments, small toys or plastic signs and claims to pay
you $30 per hour.

How it Works

This is a common scam. These programs often require you to invest
hundreds of dollars in equipment or supplies or many hours of time to
produce goods for a company who has promised to buy them. For example,
you might be required to buy a "special" sewing machine, or specific
materials required to make the crafts. You're not allowed to buy the materials
yourself. To insure quality and uniformity of the product, you must use the
provided materials, according to the scammer. After you send in your fee you
will receive barely legible instructions and materials far inferior to what you
could have purchased on your own.

Reality Check

After you purchase the supplies or equipment and perform the required
tasks, the company will not pay you for your efforts. Many consumers, for
example, have encountered companies that refuse to pay for their work
because it did not meet "quality standards." Unfortunately, no work is ever
"up to standard." Thus you are left with relatively expensive equipment and
supplies, and no income. Even if the ad "guarantees a full refund," don't be
swindled. You will never be able to obtain a refund from these scammers.

And think about of for a minute. If assembling these trinkets were so
profitable why wouldn't the company just assemble the goods themselves?
Why would the need you? And legit employers don;' charge fees. Rule of
