I just called the add in the paper, Peoples Life Style. It is just a listing of companys that supposedly pay you to assemble. Your refund is available if your refused work. What a loop hole, what is going to cost you to cover their product for loss. As a kid, I assembled products that were new to the market and was paid for each piece. My father and a friend were trying to make this afordable and eventually sold the rights. There must be people out there doing the same thing locally. Just research and find them. Possibly new patents pending,they have to be legally filed. It's public record.

Despite the negative postings about the company, I ordered their book for $48. It arrived within a week and seems to be as advertised.
There are about 40 companies offering at-home assembly or sewing, none were repeated. I mailed to 8 and have received replies from 7. All have offered actual work. Can you find these companies on your own so you don't need the book? I've never seen any advertised so I consider the book to offer some value.
Several require a deposit but I don't find that objectionable, because after all they need some assurance that when they send you a package of their goods, they will get something back for it. So far as I'm concerned, the company delivered what was promised.

I've sent off a start-up kit fee of
$48 seems like most require a deposit.
some return it after you do the work afew times..but you really only make
250-500 weekly or monthly. most pay by
each piece you do or every 10-20-30 pieces ect.. something like .50-$3.50
a part....Will get back later and give more imfo to all that are interested..

I would be careful yall. I don't blame anyone trying to make a living. Maybe some can make this work, but it sounds like a scam to me. I hate to see anyone "messedover" times are bad enough.

So you are in the prosses of doing this? from what you have to say it might be okay but i am scared of taking the risk.. i haven't done the money order thing yet i'm going to wait until i hear that is a real thing. so let me know if its worth it and you get paid.

You know it may not be a scam so to say, but is it like Amway? Selling junk....how many people have tried that? Amway, SMC, and many others may not be a scam, but can you make it work? Testimonies from people that did wonderful can even be true for the first ones on the bandwagon. I'm sure the first ones involved with Amway or SMC did very well...what about now? I would forget it guys. I know times are tough, I'm there myself, but I refuse to be taken by BS like this!

i recieved my directory today and i must say IM PISSED! When I ordered the book the lady told me that were a few companies that didnt require any money to start. So i spent my LAST $47.95 on this RETARDED FLIMSEY PAPERBACK, a 2nd grader could have put together. After getting hung up 3 times from the same operator, I got told i would have to write a letter to customer relations, and ask for my money back. She stated I had 60 to do so after getting my directory. PEOPLE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! THIS IS A SCAM! THEY SUGAR-COAT THE REAL DETAILS SO YOU WILL SEND THEM MONEY!!!!!!

peoples life style is a rip off. i called quite a few of the numbers for work in the bogus hand book and most of them no one answered the phone. i stopped payment on my check as i realized it was a scam. do not ask for anything from peoples life style. this book they mail you will not ever get you work at home.

I just ordered the book and Im curious to find out if anyone besides the previous is actually assembling them or if there is anyone who has actually done it and made money from it. and if they have i wonder is it anything like it seems? What is the Potential of these places and are there really companys in there that dont require the security deposit that are worth it? Please only people who have actually done this and found the work of it respond. i realize people that yall think that this is a scam and none of you are going to do it. i want to talk with people that have done it and their thoughts

Well I called twice today and the second time I signed up. There was no high pressure and I even remarked to the second lady that I hope this was not a scam. Now I'm not so sure with everyone's negative comments. I will have lost even more faith in mankind if this turns out to be a scam. I'm really too old for this kind of garbage!!!!!

I ordered the "directory" today.
I will post back with real info after trying it.
It sounds like most people on here order it and don't follow through before declaring it a scam and asking for their money back.
Anyway I'll let you know what happens once I've tried it, assembled some product, and hopefully get paid.

Well I've received my book now with the list of companies in it, so far almost every company I look up has a big ripoff report on them, or scam report, and the BBB gives them an F rating their lowest rating for a company.
From what these reports say these companies don't even sell the products you supposedly assemble for them, they make their money from the "start up kits" that they sell you to get started making these products for them.
I have found one company out of this book that actually got good reviews, customers saying they actually get paid for making products for them.
also nearly all the info contained in this booklet is readily available on the web at various work at home sites where people hold forums on which companies are scams or not.
Next I'll take the few companies I couldn't find scam evidence for and see if I can get more info and hopefully get some work that I get paid for.

Is this a legitimate company in Slidell. Are they actually giving people at home employment that is not a rip-off?
As experience from working for the company, NO its a scam! You can actually get work but everything that is in their book, you have to send money to get started!
