Are Assembly Jobs At Home Real?
It’s 2012 and people are still searching for ways to make quick and easy money at home. One home job/business program that promises lots of easy money is assembly jobs at home. With advertisements suggesting that you can make up to $1500 per week it’s no wonder that so many people are looking for these kinds of jobs online. Who wouldn’t want to be paid to stay at home and make crafts all day?
The question I hear most often is “Are Assembly Jobs At Home Real?” Before I get into that let’s discuss what assembly jobs from home really are.
What is an Assembly Home Job?
An at home assembly job is actually not a job at all. It is a business opportunity because you have to invest in a starter kit, tools, and materials. You are then paid based on how many products you create successfully. I will admit that I have never tried the assembly job at home business route so this information is purely research based, and not from personal experience.
Are Assembly Jobs At Home Real?
The assembly job business opportunity is real. Companies will take your money and provide you with a kit and products to create. Whether the finished product will make you money is up in the air. My research leads me to believe that assembly jobs are scams due to several key factors.
Key Factors That Scream “This is A SCAM!”
1. Almost all reputable websites that I have visited regarding assembly jobs suggest that the assembly job opportunities are in fact a scam.
2. Once you do find a company that is possibly real you will then have to pay yet another website to get that assembly company’s contact information. Why would a business opportunity company be so hard to get in touch with? Another red flag is raised!
3. After you finally find a company to assemble craft products for you will then have to pay them a very high starter kit fee plus you may even need to purchase some extra tools or materials on your own. Notice: Real business opportunities do require an investment however this investment is unusually high considering the garbage you are about to receive in the kit.
4. Once you have finished “assembling” the crafts you have to mail them back to the company at YOUR cost in hopes that your items are not rejected for poor quality. An unusually large portion of the reviews I read stated that products were always rejected.
4. If your finished items are accepted and you get paid, you will see that you are killing yourself putting stuff together only to make less than $1 -2 per hour.
5. The FTC warns about these too good to be true opportunities, and they even have an initiative called Operation Empty Promises warning people about such work at home schemes here
What You Need To Know:
1. You will not make money without working hard. I hate to crush your dream but this is reality.
2. If an opportunity sounds too good to be true it usually is. Yet another reality check!
3. Do not invest in a business opportunity without fully checking the business out. By law the company is required to give you information to help you make an informed decision on whether the opportunity is right for you or not. If you cannot get in touch with anyone before you pay a fee then it is most definitely a scam!
