Time Is More Valuable Than Money

I signed up to start working with WFG a few months ago because I was really impressed with the products they sell and the potential to make money seemed to be pretty high. I still agree with the main product and as a consumer may continue to do business with them. However, becoming an agent is a totally different story. People were so nice to me before I signed up and was still checking the place out. As soon as I got started I realized that they were not completely honest with me about the time commitment. They were not completely honest with me about what "Basic Training" was and they were soo demanding of the little free time that I had, it was ridiculous. They reel you in by telling you that you're going to be an entrepreneur, but as soon as you get on board there's required meetings, required conference calls, required seminars, required conferences and other things. My "team leader" whatever that means, would call as late as 11pm and continue calling if I didn't answer. I had to call him out and after I did we were fine, but I should not have to tell someone that. I would bring a guest to a meeting and if I showed up without that guest the next time everyone would be hounding me about that person and their decision and I felt like they were putting so much pressure on me to produce. A few people even had attitudes with me if the people I invited didn't join or commit to anything! Frankly, I think the people are obnoxious and they require entirely too much effort for something doesn't monetize right away if you're working with limited spare time. If you're unemployed, maybe this is a great option for you, but if you already have full-time employment, if you sign up with WFG, work will be your life.

all of you are crazy! this is the old wma scam in 1990's.

#330086

@ dro i couldnt agree more! i have had a job that provided a w2 for more than 10 years and all my hard work made someone else rich!

there is always someone at the top that is making money off all the people who think they have no options. to become someone on the top and help others to also have the same leverage isnt a bad way to help people.

its not easy either, not by all means. but if you see yourself doing more with resources at your disposal and plan and prepare, instead of your bosses planning and preparing then telling you what to do making them rich, you have more oppertunity for your bigger dreams than just a paycheck where others are deducting from your money before you even deposit it into your account.

I have to agree with Sarah. If you are unemployed and the only people who call you back for employment are overly nice and have stains on their shirts and they smell like smoke or an ash-tray, RUN!

RUN FAST to the unemployment line where people aren't overly nice and no one smokes and no one has stains on their shirt or pants. RUN to the soup kitchen where no one smells like an ash-tray but are always showered and shaved and smelling like a spring day after rain. WFG people are just too nice to be real, right? And anyone with a stain on his shirt must be a scam artist.

Right?

Right??? If you don't believe me you might be a candidate for $6,000/month income.

#328889

I agree with you about every one being so happy and chairful. What i've realized in this life is that alot of people talk the talk of wanting to be financially ok and freedom from debt but when it comes to walking the walk its another story.

PEOPLE! To become successful is alot of work and when you have people ready to help you get therE EMBRASS it.

Bill Gates does not work by himself, Donald Trump does not work by himself the all have a distribution channel. You can only be successful by having alot of money working for you and alot of people working for you and with you.

Have you ever played sports at the championship level? If so, you would know that strong leadership is required in order to reach your ultimate potential.

#328654

@Sara

Maybe you're just not used to people being positive, energetic, and genuinely NICE! I can't fault you for that.

It is VERY uncommon. However, just because you weren't able to see past all the "perceived imperfections" and chose instead to focus on why you shouldn't be there, you shouldn't tell others who might be more open-minded not to go.

I have a friend that works for the World Financial Group, and he invited me to the Chino Hills office where I met a group of people that were from a variety of different fields of work, some young and some old... But one things for sure, they were all very happy and extremely friendly.

I met a teacher working part time, a former construction worker, a nurse, a doctor, a former ATT executive, etc... All were gracious and professional. It was a pleasant experience and I'm still contemplating whether I should join the company. One thing my friend told me is that he has learned a ton from the leadership and he's made 6,000 last month, part time.

When he showed me the check, I couldn't believe it. I know the corporate world, I owned my own business for 10 years and sold it. It comes down to leadership that determines success of a company, and I talked with one of them at the Chino office, Christopher Schelman.

He was a definite leader. That's the only reason I'm thinking of joining, because my buddy has learned a lot from him, and if my buddy can make 6k a month, then I certainly can, if not more.

#309705

it maybe not for everyone, but it's not fair to tell everyone not to check it out. i think WFG offers a good opportunity for everybody.

You just need to be open minded.

If you think Corporate world is better....

you are probably blind folded. you don't know what you don't know.

World Financial Group is a Scam

World Financial Group is a straight up scam. First they ask you to come to a meeting about a possible job in the insurance industry. Then when you get there you see it is nothing about a job, but rather is a whole bunch of people hopping around and spouting off about how much money they make. Secondly, you will be asked to make and appointment for an interview for a position with the company. This is not an interview, but really is a bulls*** session where they ask you about your life goals and then try to use those goals to trick you into giving them money. Thirdly, they will ask you to come back for a training session. When you get to this supposed training session all you hear is more garbage about how much money you COULD make, how you need to pay them money for certification and a background check and fingerprints, and how you need to bring in three to five recruits a week. This is not a job. This is a scam. Do not give the representatives of this company any money. If you need a job go interview with a company that does not ask you for money, or invest in an education for yourself. I never once gave this company money. I went to three of their 'meetings' to see what they had to say. Never once did they offer any type of training. Never once. They did, however, ask for money each time. In the meetings that were supposed to be training sessions they never gave insurance training of any type, no real information. They did love to tout how their affiliation with big name companies like Hartford was real. Good for them, but association with legitimate companies does not make them legitimate or any less of a scam. The individuals who run these little meetings that are supposed to be training sessions love to repeat how their company is not a scam and is valid because they are in a heavily regulated industry. They love to claim that they have very few, if any, sanctions or fees brought against them for misconduct and misrepresentation. This is simply not true. Lookup their company record, especially look up their company record under their previously listed company names. You will find many inconsistencies with their claims and find some to be outright lies. Wikipedia has great information on this. My best advice to you, other than to NEVER give these people money, is to agree to go to some of their meetings. Go. Take notes so you can remember what to look up on the internet later on. Write down the claims that they make and check them out. Look up written opinions and financial reports on this company as you research them. Be sure to read information that is FOR this company as well. You need to hear the good things people say about WFG. You need to read and hear their success stories and RESEARCH them. This will give you a better picture of how people are brainwashed into this company. You will find that getting straight answers is extremely difficult. Seriously, go to a couple of their meetings and you will find out. Of course, don't tell them you are simply checking out their scam. Just go and listen. Check out EVERYTHING they say and claim. They will also talk heavily of how so many people think their company is a scam and how these people are only naysayers who don't want to make money. Listen very carefully to how they speak about people who do not like the company and who try to prove it as a scam. They will give every excuse from people being vindictive and subversive, to people being lazy and not really wanting to make money. But don't take my word for it. Go. Go to a series of these meetings. Take notes. Do not give them any money. Have a really good laugh at a really good scam.

Paying for financial advice is like paying someone to go to the toilet for you. Do your own financial planning - or don't do it at all!

#1052030

Honestly, All the time and money spent in this company, I was able to get it back, as I got my state license (so its a legit) I was able to do business and earn more, the person who ask you to join don't get paid if you join (so it's not a pyramid scam) You should get a good training and study more to get a state license so that you could earn more, the more license you have the more money coming in....

#1024508

That is so true everything he's saying is an absolute fact. I have friends that are with the company for a couple of years now they haven't gotten out one penny from the company.I'm pretty sure I persuaded them by doing research on the company and realize all the money they're spending on driving around to random places listening to bogus stories.gosh people wake up if it sounds too good to be true it usually is I guess you could say it's just a hunch I have in common sense plays a big part in it

@PissedConsumer1024508

There's no way you can be in a company and not make any money. It's either they couldn't pass the state license exam or have no leadership.

@PissedConsumer1421983

Anon #142****, please get a clue. You're not "...in a company..." You don't earn a salary.

You're merely a contractor.

And yes, the vast majority of folks who join WFG *lose* money. Often LOTS of it. In addition to the sign-up fee, you have to pay monthly mandatory E&O insurance payments, gas and other travel expenses, etc.

Most of all, you have to pay high premiums on a dangerous IUL policy, esp Transamerica's FFIUL, that your uplines pressure you to buy.

The IUL is a life insurance policy that's designed to FAIL in a few decades, stealing many thousands of your dollars.

Dear reader. Please do yourself a major solid.

Please stay far FAR away from WFG.

Thanks for reading this and the best of luck to you.

#1001568

You're full of *** That's very far from the experience I've had with the company. Maybe you just got a bad team.

The team I am with is ALL about serving the needs of clients and training for reps is provided EVERY day, except Sundays.

You can play for the White Sox, or the Cubs. Apparently, you got the Cubs.

#996802

First of all anyone who wants to get licensed in anything had to pay down their licensing themselves. Rarely will a company pay for it, unless it's a corporation like Walgreens who will pay their pharmacy techs to get licensed for the first test and any other tests they have to pay.

I'm a licensed medical esthetician and had to pay almost $27,000 plus I have to pay seprate payment for my license. If you want your real estate license you have to pay for it. No one else will. This opportunity is for an Entrepreneurship which means if you work you make money and you invest in your own business and be your own boss.

If you join and don't work then obviously it was a waste of money. Some people want to work for other people and make other people rich and some people want to make themselves rich. If your scared to talk about your business then of course an entrepreneurship is not good for you.

Some people go to school for years to do finance and are in debt to school loans and may also work for a company that could lay them off for various types of reasons and take most of their commissions. So in reality this is only a scam to people who don't have the work ethic to make their own money and build their own business.

#980545

Whoever wrote this message are very uneducated. You didn't even give yourself a chance to try to understand the company and you wrote about the negative issue.

How can a company teach you how's money works, teach how to save money for your families and futures, teach how to plan for your retirement, teach how to pay less tax, teach how to invests your money, teach how to save for your kids college planning, and etc. would be a scam. All of the associates needs legal license from the state in able to do the business!!!!

For your information, You will not be successful in your life, you will be like a rat that who just work with pay check to pay check. I felt sorry for you.

WFG My Personal Experience

I am sorry, but this is the first time I decided to Search World Financial Group Since I have "Joined" them. I have been there for almost a year and a half. I am young, but i knew the reputation just by word of mouth. To tell you the truth (whoever is involved) I did not want opinions like yours to dictate what I would chose to do, or an opportunity I would take or not take. I, unlike many people in the world today, decided to look at their direct sites, the insurance companies they are allowed to be affiliated with, their parent company, the laws, and the compliance laws they have to abide by. These are credible sources. If a company is not big, if they are not good, then they will not have law suits. Things happen, for god's sake McDonalds has law suits. I Hate McDonalds, I think it tastes like horse *** but i do not post in online. I let others try it and decide for themselves. How dare you post that you are fighting against it? You should make a website educating people on business ethics, on how to conduct business, and do the right thing. There are always bad people in every business. My Family was victim to Bad WfG agents, but we met one that was credible, came to our home, and we don't know them well at all, but got to know their background before buying anything. I have learned so much about insurance, financial planning, how mortgages work, how taxes work, how estate is paid. Etc. But that is because the office I work with, West Los Angeles Office, through many years, and many mistakes I'm sure, are actually educating their Associates, before throwing them in for a sale. Without this opportunity, I would not be where I am today; I would not have the support, the friends, or the confidence. Can you honestly say that you want to fight that? If i read this site before I went on my interview, or business presentation, I would CANCEL! But I would miss almost 2 years of happiness, of care, of really seeing how we change people's lives in a positive and ethical way. I do not steal money, because it is my family I would be stealing from! Who does that? Exactly! WHO! Look at the WHOs that are doing this, Target the Who, not the Company and the opportunity it holds for those maybe school isn't for them. I am sure everyone knows someone smart who knows school is just not for them. They prefer hands-on learning rather than sitting in a class and learning, which is not bad thing at all. But all I ask is that you recheck your comments, suggestions, and focus on the right things.

OMG McDonald seriously people sued McDonald for selling them an hot cofee to easy to sue them in order to make money.

WFG steal money and make people loose money that's an huge difference....

Never compare apple with orange with this example for me you have no credibility, moreover you said you were young, you have a lack of experience and it's obvious

#395221

Can't we all just get along? :sigh So many people hating and defending this company that you all just end up confusing the people who want to know more about the company.

The fact is, we do not know any of you, therefore we cannot and should not trust your opinion. This is a site where anyone can go under any name and post comments on anything they want. Stop the hate people, because life is to short to go around and influencing other peoples lives. If this company works out for some people that's great!

If it doesn't then something wrong must of happened. Everyone has different circumstances and some solutions may work for others and not for you, but to go around and flame the company for what the agent has done to you is wrong and not very justifiable. I would blame the company for lack of training and monitoring of their employees/agents. It's all about educations folks!

Don't you agree the more you know the better your choices will be? But that is also a double edge sword is it not? There are always those that will abuse knowledge they gain, that is a fact, but to generalize the whole based on the few is not a sound judgement at all, am I right? Can I get an Amen?

Stop the hate alright gyus? It all just comes down to education.

WFG is a company that teaches its employees to suck the blood of their client. You will always have the feeling why you got ripped off and why you need to screw your friends and family. If you are approach by a WFG rep, run for the hills and stay away from them.

#284242

You're an assistant to a lawyer. Being a paralegal gives you no credibility, my friend. I joined WFG a year ago, and I can tell you, the dream selling is there, and so are the promises. In life, there are no true guarantees, and WFG is not beyond this standard. I am a business owner, graduate with a degree in civil engineering, and I make ends meet. When WFG knocked on my door, the agent was a former CPA (i'm sure your credentials know what that stands for), andshe was not only inspiring but helpful as well.

A remedy to your ailments, I did not make any money. It was not because WFG was a scam. It was not because I did not "believe" in their mission statement (for I UNDERSTOOD more than blindly subjecting myself). I simply wasn't a salesman. It's a difficult business, rooted in degrees of success and equally/varied amounts of rejection.

Those that make it, I applaud them because it requires a strong and equally intelligent individual to see through clearer lenses than yourself.

HIdden fees, interest rates.. blah blah blah. Independent insurance agents represent a brokerage firm under the masses of Insurance companies, and THEY create the products. If a product is unreliable, the agent should not be selling. If the agent didn't know, they shouldn't be selling. It's a simple example of the prepared and unprepared.

WFG - to be clear - is an opportunity. That is all. Maybe they are not professionals. Maybe some are not ethically inclined; however, those that are, those that succeed on paramounts of value and belief in themselves (not in a quota or a business-like cult)... these are the respectable. For most people - like you Leatham - they are fundamentally underestimated and unrealized.

Frank gives me one name of a real person who suceed someone I can call and talk to. And who has proof of that....

Someone who hasen't stole money who didn't make poor family loose all their savings.

I bet you can't

I have an MBA, I went to their *** conference and they are full of s... they do huge mistake.

Being an engineer doesn't give you any credibility at all either in understanding business and financail products ....just saying

#276044

Oh! PS!

I now work as paralegal in bankruptcy law and I CANT TELL YOU how much people have LOST due to the fine print, and hidden statements, and fees, and interest rate, and claus, and retainers from...you guessed it, yours truly...WORLD FINANCIAL GROUP who got people refinanced, Home Mods, Mortgage, you name it. their hand was in it... So next time you think about "almost 2 years of happiness, of care, of really seeing how we change people's lives in a positive and ethical way" Think of the families who were desperate to get a home for their childrens future, or refinance to pay medical bills, or home mod so they could have their elderly parents move in with them only to have their home go into FORECLOSURE cause they cant keep up with the variable rate! So, think about that next time you come on the internet and rant about " I do not steal money because it is my family I would be stealing from!

Who does that?" Well, YOU DO...

and you are stealing money, and ruining lives along the way be representing this company. So, think about all the happiness you are bringing people when you are holding their blindfold on...

#276030

WFG IS A SCAM TO THE MAX!!!! ITS SAD TO THINK THAT YOU WOULDNT "be where I am today; I would not have the support, the friends, or the confidence" Really??!!

That is the most BRAIN WASHED statement I have ever read thus this far about this company!

And I use to WORK for them! They are by FAR the biggest scums of the earth!

WFG Total fraud

Well, I was contacted by WFG representative. I was impressed by the big stories and the presentations. They gave me big picture and I was so foolish that I left my company paying very good salary. Truth came to picture soon, The lie cost me my job, 6 months of saving 5000 per month. After getting 4 - 5 customers, I was paid 400 to 500. I was promised for 20k to 25k. After learning that I was fooled, I was shocked and got into accident. It cost 8000/- My mother in law heard that I was scammed and she had heart attack and she passed away. Here is their trick. They attract you to use your contacts and then try to get rid of you, so that they can keep the commissions for the rest of life. Another thing, whenever you go to their presentations or when they come to your home for presentation, just keep the paper of what they write. They will deny you because it is lie. Recommendation to all :- If you have any enemies, recommend them to him and see how miserable can be persons life. WFG :- Remember your lie can cost someones job, savings, someone's life. Remember whenever you get the check, ask yourself is the check is true or from lieing or from getting rid of representative. ASK YOURSELF THE BLESSING ARE IN THE CHECK OR CURSES. THE ANSWER WILL BE CURSES. AND IT WILL HAUNT YOUR LIFE FOREVER. GOD IS THERE TO WATCH :- NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

you aren't supposed to quit your job until you go through the process of learning and getting your license and then start making a steady income, which for the right individual can take a few months, or for the skeptical, not fully in it person like yourself might make 10k in one year because you flat out suck. anyone who fails in WFG has no one to blame but themselves

#797651

well, I gotta say I agree and disagree with your statements at same time,I would say if you are not active doing presentation to potential clients or teammates, don't expect money would just fall from the sky. Second thing I would like you to know is we never get rid of our teammates, do you wanna know why?

cuz the moment you quit, we are not moving forward either.Are you also aware of we are regulated by the government, so anything we put on the paper we are liable for that? I bet you don't know about this, cuz anything goes wrong in paper, we will be fired, understand?

I repeatedly told them I don't sell to Family or Friends

Here's how they work. First the "dream" chart of what you'd like to do. Then the repeated assurance that you don't have to cold call. Second is the pitch of all the successful people that now don't have to work because they are making all this money. Lastly, yes here it comes......."why don't you get a list of friends, family and coworkers who can benefit from our services". How many times did I tell them I don't do that!? What bothers me the most is these are folks from my Church. While I survived I feel for those who might not have such a thick skin.

You certainly shouldn't have become an agent then. I don't recruit, yes recruit just like the NFL, MLB or any other professional area, unless they are serious.

I don't waste my time trying to "sell" to people I show them what I do and how it helps and if they show me the'yre serious then I work with them. The whole church thing and friends though, why would you become an agent to help people if your ashamed of it? Generally the though is if you have the cure to cancer and 5 of your family members have it, would you give it to them or strangers? Just look at how the economy is, everyone can agree we have some financial cancer going on in America.

WFG Canada regularly gets awards from the public for their services, U.S. is just not as active yet.

WFG is a financial sales group. As an insurance agent, I was very surprised when they asked me to pay $25 to file contracting papers with each insurance company they represent. No agency has ever asked to pay for contracting before and I've had my insurance license...

Actually, it's a one-time $25 processing fee to set up the appointment process. After that time, all appointments (or "contracting paperwork" as you called it) are covered as you need them (as you represent the different companies to your clients).

Yes, st is a mml barely legal pyramid scheme that calls themselves financial advisers. Its the Amway of Financial Advisers.

Yes, they may have licenses to back it up, but not the training nor the experience. Anyone else who says different, has drunk the kool-aid.

World Financial Group is a SCAM!!

I have recently been into the World Financial Group in Brea, CA. Not only in my opinion did they lie about what they claimed there company could do for me, they stole my money! I fell prey to the nice words and nice facade put on by people with in the office. I felt as if they were truly a good company with the ability to help me. I feel I was misled because they present ideas and solutions to me that sounded great and almost to good to be true. That's because they were to good to be TRUE! They were all lies after I signed papers to have them help me they told me what they couold do to help me and it was nothing what they told me in the meeting I had with associates and managers of this company. It was all just a scam to get me to hand them over money. Please don't fall into the trap I did with this company. STAY AWAY!!!!

How did they scam you?

You're just complaining because you didn't work hard enough.

Everyone has legit opinions due to their own expereinces but anyone that has common sense will know that every company and person will have something bad to their name and also something good. It's not the company that is bad, it's the people who don't do the right things that are bad.

To really get the truth, find out for yourself by being an actual part of it. A person's bad expereice should not prevent another person who can have a wonderful expereince. Remember that google and the internet is only a search engine and not a research engine. If you want accurate truthful information on companies, you actually should pay money for the research that way it is more legit.

Furthermore, anything related to the financial service industry is heavily regulated so just use your common sense when you read people's comments about being scammed and what not. People will always find someone else to blame when they don't succeed. I'm sure there are bad wfg agents out there but keep in mind that there are also the good ones. Remember that everywhere we go we will ecounter good customer service and bad customer service.

For instance, if I get bad customer service at walmart, I can't say that walmart is a bad company, it just means that the person who works there, needs to be fired.

I hope this makes sense to people who like to base their decisions on other people's opinions.

@PissedConsumer262765

Def? Looks like you misspelled the word 'definitely'.

You also improperly used capital letters. Your posting contains fragmented sentence. Please borrow some money from your rich cousin and take a few spelling courses at your local community college.

Also, ask that same cousin why using ALL CAPS is an ignorant thing to do.

LMAO @ this line "I just happen to be working somewhere else"... you also just happen to be full of ***

#262761

OF COURSE SHE'S PISSED OFF. SHE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO SPELL EITHER.

"LIED ABOUT WHAT THERE COMPANY COULD DO FOR ME." LoL! THERE ARE TONS OF LAZY PEOPLE BLAMING EVERYBODY ELSE FOR THEIR FAILURES. IF SHE SHOWS UP TO WORK AT McDONALDS AND DOESN'T DO JACK, SHE GONNA GET CANNED AS WELL. AND OF COURSE SHE'S GONNA BE PISSED & PROBABLY BLAME McDONALDS FOR BEING JERKS.

LMAO!

WHAT A LOSER. WHY DON'T PEOPLE REALIZE THAT THERE IS OPPORTUNITY EVERYWHERE BUT IF YOU ARE A LAZY** B**TCH YOU WON'T ACCOMPLISH A *** THING.

If you don't work for them, why are you so angry? My cousin works for Wells Fargo but if someone started saying bad things about Wells Fargo I wouldn't be upset!

Sounds like you are an employee there. If so, you are aiding them in their fraudulent endeavors!

Are they a legit financial services group? Yes! Are they looking to hire people to be on pay roll and not only work for commission?? NO!

People are actually hurting out here. I am so sorry that you are so out of touch with reality to see that and understand the people who are posting here frustration.

It's hilarious how many people become spell/grammar check police when someone says something truthful that strikes their nerve!

Apparently she spells well enough to *** you off! Charging someone to do their background check when you are a multibillion dollar a year company?? Sounds like a very insincere place to me too!

Thanks for the warning everyone!

:(

@PissedConsumer262761

She didn't misspell 'there', she used the wrong word. And you apparently are about as bright as a box of doorknobs, because you used horrible and improper grammar and can't write without using ALL CAPS, which is the sign of either a child or a doucheb@g new to the internet. Grow up!

I am about to join, and I decided to read these blog. Been in the MLM business for a decade, so I know what it takes.

Here all I found the same old complaints from people that does not get how a MLM work. You really have to have what it takes to succeed in this enviroment of MLM and cold calling, and approaching people on the street you do not even know, I do not have a problem with that, I learned to do it from zero sales experience.

It is how it is, and it is not for everyone. People looking for "help" wont make it here, people looking to be great in business NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES, will have a chance, good luck to everyone.
