I found these people threw a learn to work at home listing sent to me from another co. called home assembly their job is to send you a list of co. looking for people to work at home makeing these electronic boards for 6.05 a board home assembly will send you this list 27.00 so i thought ok i would like to learn some thing new so i got the list now you pick a co. so i picked electronic laboratories inc. they sent me a real nice letter telling me in order to get startes they needed 49.00 and that was the only cost.See Top 10 Worst Companies in Newnan, GAso i said ok so i sent the money and i wated, and wated and wated foe this board they were to send me finely i wrote them and hey lets get stared here ! so finley they sent the board for me to learn on so i did my best and sent it back for testing now when i sent it it lit up just as they said it should because i went threw and did as they said. No response so i wated, wated, and wated so i wrote again. hey wheres my next boards or boards and did you see how my board tested. by now i was thinking these people are so full of it i told them if i dont hear from you soon i am going to put your co. on the news as a scam . boy right after that they had a letter back to me your board did not work when tested, soldering poor diodes in revers and if you want you can try again. not heard from them since. This is two co. scaming telling people they will learn to make these boards and i bet if you looked in to it its the same people working both co. adds At my cost i am here to tell you do not send money in any way to these co. out there thinking your going to learn something their only going to con you .if you cant walk right up to it and shake its hand its not REAl!!!

    I'm a highly trained and certified solder, quality assurance and all around one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. But no one can just pick up a circuit board and assemble it right the 1st time much less the 15th. And solder has to flow smooth and and be strong . There's 3 classes of solder work: #1 a hairdryer or TV Remote: #2 Computers or ATM's : #3 Medical Machines that keep you alive or the Circuit boards on a Airplane, 3 means lives count on it to working right every time. The solder from each class going up gets way harder and A LOT more Quality Assurance work is done. And in Class 3 you wouldn't believe some of the things I got to inspect " we'll just say Edwards A.F. Base, Space Shuttle, Lockheed Martian". And it took me 3 years of training to get to a level that I was allowed to work on such components. (98% of people who solder will never see that, unless they're electrical engineers who loss their real jobs.
    But I have no idea what they make but I know it's a 48hr class then a 10hr test to become a class 1 solder. Flax resin is important in soldering and if it's not done right it can work great then just get a little thump and short out. You have to do it many years and understand that 1st you need the right mix of solder and it cracks if you don't let it flow on never let it glob on because it's worse on the board to have to much than not enough. And most of all the least amount of solder you see the better the job you've done. Sorry to ramble but I'm going to try them out myself and if they fail my board, Not To Brag IT'S A SCAM. Because I use Electrostatic Discharge protection and electrostatic bags and foam peanut packaging. I just copied a pic of their frost something board but it wouldn't let me post it. But It's upper Class 1 work to lower Class 2 according to how that certain device is being used. And it's a perfect board for me to do from home for the pay.

    I'm Sandy G. The Sandman to my friends and I'll let you know what happened as soon as I do. Until then, Good Luck all and if a good work at home job comes up please share it with us if possible.

    Hi Sandy,

    I am currently undergoing a third time. Always a different error. Since we will discuss later.

    I just wrote a comment but I guess it didn't list so I'll cut it short. I've not been able to get in touch with them because of various errors. But I did order and listing of at least 1000+ companies for $44.95 and if anyone wants this list sent to anyone looking for all work at home companies I'll sell it for $20.00 which is less than half of what I paid and I think that's extremely far. E-mail me and I'll give you my PayPal info and send it ASAP in Word Pad form. Plus when I get updates I'll send them on to you as I get them included.

    I ordered 2 kits from 2 separate companies and as soon as I do the sample process and see if the time is worth the money and 1 of the companies are new so it should be cool. Both should be here today at least by Monday. All these companies are suppose to be legit and always check them out for yourself anyway to be safe. I'll give the names of the 2 companies I bought the kits from and a full review 1 - 5 stars after above is done. And if anyone is working for a good company please let us know about them.

    Good Luck to All Work at Home Workers,
    Sandy G.

    I ordered my kit from Electronic Laboratories about 2 weeks ago. I sent a money order to them for a little over $49.00. I havn't gotten a letter nor a part since.
    I need a good work at home job, so if anyone finds one along these lines that is not a scam, I would love it if you would post it.
    Oh yeah, Sandman, I bought the book with 1000 plus companies in it for $44.95, I wittled the guy down to a little over $14.00, and that's were I found the name of "Electronic Laboratories Inc." So I wouldn't hold much water in that book eighther, but if you find something good in there, be a pal and list it, as will I if I find something lagit.

    I have been waiting for over three weeks for my board to arrive and wonder if it ever will. Perhaps the state attorney general should be allirted about this scam!

    Anymore comments on this company? I've just received my application in the mail and now I am wondering if I should commit. After all the reviews above, I am very skeptical. However, it seems like all message traffic has just stopped. Please respond, somebody! Thanks.

    i assembled a few parts for this company almost 10 years ago around 2003/2004. i was a young teenage looking to make some extra cash and it helped. it was still $5 or $6 for every part that i completed. it took about 2 weeks or so for the check to come in. i got paid and thats all that matter to me. im currently an aviation electrician in the us navy so i know a few things about electronics. even the military isnt a job security anymore. i just recently ordered the kit from the same company, i dont know how much has changed since then but hopefully it isnt a scam now. they say i will recieve the kit in 3-4 day. guess we will find out if they're a scam or not. hope this review helps some of you out there.

    I'm from Romania, Europe. I tried to collaborate with Electronic Laboratories. I worked for one plate SE-1, they accepted it and I received a $6.05 check. The problem about this ckeck is it cannot be charged because of the minimum value - $7.00. I requested 50 pieces SE-1 plates, but they sent me just only one. I worked this plate too, they accepted it and I have received another $6.05 check. I requested again 50 pieces, but they sent me again just one...
    This is SCAM. The Electronic Laboratories comission is 19 or 49$ but they are sending only one plate (the value of this plate is $0). They are crooks.
    After all, I abandoned the collaboration.

    Listen everyone this is a MAJOR scam. I have located the man who is getting rich off of us.. His name is: Stan Kanafoski, his address: 2577 Riverbend Rd SW Plainville, GA [protected]. Please go to the SD Office of the Attorney General site and file a complaint on this jerk (simply do a search it will take you to the site where you will find a complaint form). Also go to the US Postal Site and file a "mail fraud" case. I plead with you to do this. This man needs to pay! I would like to go after him in court. If you are interested in helping me, please e-mail me at [protected] Thank you

    This company is a scam. when you send the $19.00 dollars for parts review; it wasn't professional. So yeah I sent that crap back. If I'm correct; I think this is the same dickwad that was advertising work at home assembling cd modulators. Back in like 1999; I assembled a working cd modulator and ol dickwad didn't accept it. Keep your $50.00 people and look for a part time job. Stop smoking weed; drink alcohol or wine and believe in Obama. Peace!

    I don't know how the heck this company is still around. I know f some one that got scammed by them around 2004. This fellow paid the 49 dollars and received his first circuit board. A board with a couple LEDs, transistor, resistors and capacitors. He assembled the board and it was rejected. So he asked me to look at his second board and it was to their specifications. That board was rejected.
    A bit about my background. I have been trained and certified in MIL-STD-454, MIL-STD-883J, EIA-541, JESD-625, IPC J-STD-001, IPC-7711, IPC-7721. I could go on here, but it already looks like I am bragging. In short I asked him to order another board. We already figured this was a scam by the second board, but for giggles and for my curiosity We gave it one last go. I assembled the board to MIL-STD. At least as close to what they wanted which does not come even close to any standards. Packaged it up per EIA/JSED standards and shipped it back. Three weeks later, refused due to poor soldering techniques, parts placement and even claiming the transistor was inserted improperly (EBC) apparently reversed. Apparently their out of their minds there. Possible drug induced. I know my work and have worked in this field for 40 plus years.
    All I can say is this is a total scam.
    My thought. They have unsuspecting poor soles dish out $49 US dollars ( non refundable ), have these poor soles assemble these boards for what I feel is a good rate per board if someone ever gets paid for one. They have a high reject rate even if you are MI:-STD trained and certified. They take these boards and sell them in bulk for aftermarket products, make $100-1000 US per unit (a box of 20 to 100 pieces) of someone's else's work. They reap the profits while the people at home that are trying to make some sort of living gets ripped off.
    Contacting the Post Master General for mail fraud sometimes works to get the initial monies back. Contact ing the BBB is apparently a waste of time. Contacting the State of Georgia's Attorney Generals office apparently goes no where. Look at how many reports are on line and the methods of reporting them goes unpunished.
    I would suggest to those that have been taken by this scam to not only report them to the state of Georgia
    Also report them to the US Attorney Generals office, and to the Federal Trade Commission at
    Something is going on in Georgia that is protecting this company, probably due to soem loop-hole in the law that needs to be closed by some Federal intervention. They have been around scamming people for as long as I know, roughly 19 years.

    OK I said my piece and All I have to say is Cave Latronum (beware of thieves) and Caveat emptor (buyer beware) to those of you buying the finished product.

    They are scam and steal money from people. Back in year 2000, I ordered a kit to build AM modulator. I paid an amount of $200 for the kit and manual to build. It took me about two weeks to build a unit since I was a beginner but had some knowledge of electronics. Also I had to set up electronics stuff to solder. They never responded as usual. They still around till now!!! Can't believe this and how many perhaps thousands or a million people they had scammed. Where is the law that protects against this thie[censored] just shake my head!!!

    Kanafoski and his son Jan or John are both low life scammers of the worst types. Jan is a convicted felon for buglary and his dad Stan must not be any better.
