Work at Home opportunities

pegyreads | Posted in General Discussion on

Greetings,

Just wondered if any of you have any experience with work (sewing) at home opportunities.  One particular that I have in mind is Stuff-4-kids… making baby bibs at home.  I may have seen this ad in Threads.

I have worked for a local work-at-home company assembling precut preemie baby clothes.  I went to her home, picked up supplies, worked on them at my home and returned them.  Got paid on the spot. The finished items were available in local stores so it was easy enough to see that it was a ligitimate business.  However, I don’t know how to determine legitimate opportunites that I find via ads.

Any experience or suggestions?

Regards,

Peggy

    just out of curiousity, (i've always wondered about those ads too) i typed the business name in the search box of the better business bureau's website - http://www.bbb.com - and this business has a rating of F!  apparently, you have to front some money for the materials, and then submit the finished products so they can review them and decide whether they want to pay you or not.  you can read all the complaints at the website.  it always sounds kinda fishy to me when you have to pay money to get a job.

      How did you spell the business name for the search on the BBB site?  I tried and got nothing.  Did you use stuff-4-kids or stuff 4 kids?  I'd really like to read the complaints.  Thanks for responding to this.

      Okay,

      I figured out what what I did wrong.  This business is using a po box in Utah now.  The complaints started when they were in California.

    I wish I could quote you where and when but I read about this being a ripoff. I think it may have been the Better Homes and Gardens message board so you may want to do a search there. It seems you need to pay for the supplies and it goes downhill from there. I just wanted to add that just because the ad is in a national magazine, it doesn't mean the ad is from ####reputable company. I doubt that Threads or for that matter any other magazine, does a search on their "want ads". I take that back, Good Housekeeping I think does.
