Here's what's wrong with this: 1. Go do the research on how and why WFG was formed. 2. WFG is owned by AEGON which also owns Transamerica. If you know those companies, you know the reputation that stands between them. 3. Yes they have a multi level marketing approach...

A comment that may help others

This was based on a story about a friend who had her friend take out a 50k loan to invest, which lost $24,000. The Agent has told the friend to "Ride it out" and the friend wants to know if she should sue to get the money back. Unfortunately that friend is only potentially guilty of one thing: Not telling you and providing you with brochures and other documents with the disclaimer: Invest at your own risk. No fund or product is guaranteed due to Market volatility. She is technically correct in saying that the market is a roller coaster, of sorts and that you have to ride it out. However, no one should ever take out a loan to invest! The idea of investing is that you can comfortably live off of ~ 60% of your income, with ~ $5000 (min) in savings, leaving the remainder of your income to invest. You should never go into debt to invest. If you have to do that, you're too poor to invest. She did swindle you, but you'd have to get her on the technically of her not informing you about market volatility. Or you might get her for recommending an inappropriate product and an inappropriate method of securing money to invest.

I was called as a reference for a friend. My first impression of the guy calling as very good. He as well spoken and asked the typical questions you ask any reference that someone lists. The only thing that was a bit odd at this point was that he revealed that my...

One thing is for sure you are just mid informed. You are not an employee therefore you don’t have a boss in WFG.

just like when you franchise you are asked to submit many requirement s and have your background checked. You must want to have it and interested to do business in this platform. You compare a company that employs you versus a company that give you the opportunity to use their platform for marketing. That’s is not fair.

This is not going to be an Apple to Apple comparison. Unfortunately you dealt with someone who has no integrity doing this kind of business. I would say your friend referred you as somebody who might see the value of the company and the services offered NOT you as his reference so that he will be hired to do the business. That’s 2 different words.

Clearly you have an Employee mentality. Read the the cash flow quadrant so you will understand more the opportunity that was handed to you by your friend who is now a WFG associate.

Speak to your *** if your an associate you should what to do. I agree it gets difficult to speak to a live person but this is with every institution.

Takes me 1/2 an hour to speak with a hydro's live agent. This is our reality, everything is automated.Is WFG bad for this?

Billy Neal recruited me at my job in Fridays. His exact words “don’t worry it’s not a flirt thing just a job..” he then proceeded to tell me to come meet him and learn about the job and essentially be interviewed. What I wasn’t told is I’d have to spend 100$ out my...

Refund on card

One of your Associates did not tell me the truth and bullied me to pay $100 in business on 05/02/2018. His name is Billy Neal contact number 334434****. He told me i will never get my money back. I want to file a complaint and want my money refunded on my card ASAP or i will get Legal involved. He did not explain anything to me. And hung up on me. My contact info 757287****. I want a call today for my refund. This associate should not be a rep for your company and is a crook.
