I started investments via WFG 2013 and 2014, but had to returned to home country in March 2015 - to care for my 96-year-old mom who has Alzheimer's Disease. In June 2016 I went back to Calgary, Canada and asked for some money pulled out. I was given 2 funds from IA...

Not that the company is bad. its only a person had a special situation. Also WFG doesnt do investments it guides you towards the companies who are federally regulated.

Non-existent WFG customer technical support - everything is automated

I tried to access myWFG website and I keep getting told that I am not allowed access to the website. I call the number my *** gave me to contact customer support. I also called the WFG Canada and US general contact numbers. Everything in the menu is all automated and there is NO live customer support. There is not even any group chat function where you can get a live response from support personnel or to reach a live person directly. When I called the WFG reservation and housing center number for the upcoming 2019 convention in Las Vegas, I was not given any other customer service number to reach. I do think that customer technical support at both WFG US and Canada is a complete JOKE. I am totally disappointed with WFG even though I am a California licensed agent.

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?

Hello Phoenix Anon. As expected, you're another one of the WFG anonytrons who stages the same old hit-and-run lies.

At some gut level, you must care that you have zero credibility. Of course we have no idea who are and which office you represent. But that doesn't matter. You’ll find, like I did, that you can’t forever run away from *yourself.* You can’t keep deceiving and stealing from good and kind people.

You *will* start to deeply hate yourself because of the constant fraud you commit and the constant lie you live.

Fortunately Phoenix Anon, it’s never too late for you to make a new start.

It’s never too late for you to leave WFG, this terrible harmful pernicious organization that turns its agent-victims into pathogenic viruses. Phoenix Anon, it's not too late to start your recovery and become a human being again.

Tess Peters is the most dishonest, unprofessional, ugliest, most obnoxious agent I ever met. She is a disgrace to Transamerica and WSB. In her greediness to make money, she will promise commissions, mislead new agents, even use and abuse there financial resources so...

My friend buys Walmart gift cards worth $100 each every time she goes for a presentation to a recruit . She claims to be a business expense pretending to give to that client as a gift but in REAITY she doesn't give to client but will use it for herself.

So that is WFG agents all about. I hope KARMA is around.

Stay away from wfg don't touch it with a ten foot pole. If u wanna lose most of ur family and friends then this job is good for u cause all ur loved ones will stop answering ur phone calls. They r very good at selling u dreams and remember those r just dreams.

I have no idea who Pablo Johnson is.....

There are over 40,000 licensed (Life & health license issued by state), maybe this guy is one of them. If you think he is a scam artist, just report to WFG HQ or call local law enforcement agency.

In the meantime, learn more about other agent, you don't have to buy or join anything. But it may (or may not) improve your financial future.
