Like other MLM pyramids, where the concentration is all about getting other people in, so be sure to call all your friends, family, and people you haven't seen in years and try to get them to join too!! Not any different of a model than Quixtar or other MLM cults. I...

When I signed up, I had no idea WFG was a MLM business. Since I had been in another MLM business previously I soon began recognizing the similarities.

I opted out because I prefer not to use all my time pursuing a business that requires tremendous time and your own money especially during start up time. No doubt there are those who make money doing this business, however, there was to much vagueness about what was required at the onset yet having been in a MLM prior, I quickly knew this was not for me. I am not against or for becoming involved in a MLM business. I do recommend any business you go into, make sure you do your research and studies before jumping in head first.

I just happened onto this information to night while doing research about other businesses. Glad I did.

I was invited to the presentation and was not impressed with the speaker or the facts. Not an open forum because they don't really want questions for everyone to hear.

They throw all kinds of fake number and make people believe they are so knowledgeable and set a forum to impress the attendants. Totally the recipe for pyramid since is all about recruiting. I would never sign anything with them.

I have seeing reviews on the BBB and it seems like if you go this route you can get a refund. Good luck!

That was draining to read! Mostly because I believe you felt that way.

Here’s what I don’t like.

So we are sole proprietors so in that level we own our own business. But some people take that too much to heart! So some people do what they want.

That person who went with your “friend” wasn’t the boss lol it was his trainer and from how it sounded wasn’t qualified to train. Those presentations are supposed to be geared to educate financially.

As For that meeting you attended.

I don’t want to defend this guy but he probably didn’t know how to present all too well. So trying the learn as you go method.

Which is dumb in my opinion. As for the associates there are the classes they attend. They have a mix of everything. In my trainings It consists of a few things.

1.Product training, new and old. So things like annuities, mutual funds and other specialized financial product training. 2. Drill for skill (practice in a classroom with there peers) also where we can correct them if they are doing anything improper.

3. Case studies show them several scenarios of how to help a client in various situations. And 4. Motivation and recognition for the good things they have done.

So they want to go out and do it the right way. “Feel good you do good” Lastly all cases are reviewed by the broker who usually had been in the industry more than a decade and is registered with the FDIC who is fully licensed. These brokers carry more licenses than most financial advisors in the industry so they can offer more than other financial institutions can. Also if you go to an advisor from a bank or another firm they take a pretty big percentage commission directly from your investment.

We never touch your money it’s yours. I hate that you had poor experiences with the company. I make a point to provide quality service.

I train my team to do the same! If you ever have questions definitely feel free to comment and I’ll address it ASAP

I guess for now you could ask your mom to check her bank account, and let her know you won't be paying for whatever debt she might have racked up. It may sound cold but let's hope many people get a reality check when they are aware their wallets are badly hurt.

You say

"We qualify, get coded, background and criminal record check, go through schooling, get educated, get licensed, get trained"

Do you know that nothing you have in this list is worth more than a 1 week course that you qualify as educated and not being a criminal isn't quite something that makes a WFG agent very special..lol

It's like myself...I get up,i drink my coffee,put my coveralls and rubber boots,drive my 1992 half ton truck,comb the ditches and pick up thousands of empty beer cans and sell them at 5cents a pop..i make millions working hard,playing hard..i have a good head on my shoulders...

Now do you know what I do and how special I am?? WFG agents they are a special breed!!

Loss of cash value upon death when option 1 has been selected, has always been the case, and is not deceptive. The insured has the option of selecting option 2, which insures the cash value, and includes it in the death benefit. This really boils down to cost control....

So, I just wanted to checkout what people had to say about the company a friend is working for. They are getting people free financial help and getting people the advise most financial advisors charge outrageous fees for.

I was very shocked by a lot of the information posted on here and questioned its reliability. Come to find out a friend of my dads small business was ruined from false complaints on this website and they wanted to charge him 1,200$ to remove the comments. You may or may not be correct, but this site is an extortion tool for competitors to bad mouth their rivals. Literally type any company name in and get the most outrageous complaints that are obviously just posted for the sole reason of getting that extortion tip.

Let's see if this comment even remains on here.

Lol what a joke website. I'll go to yahoo answers.

I myself learning psychology was not so sure about it. after showing me how commotions are made and %s I, it sounded to good to be true for a customers paying on a saving plan $400.00 per month, and it was divided 50% for me and 80% for the top senor broker.... anyway.... she wanted to sing me up for a class for just $100.00 to later work on getting a license....

people be care full out there and save your money on your own, yes have a plan but do not give your plan (money) to a company that would just take your money.... that should be "Red flags."

It makes no sense for you to state the wfg suckers people into policies they cannot afford. If you were even remotely smart you would realize that brokers get paid on policy’s that actually stick around not on policy’s that end up being canceled later on.

It would result in a chargeback to the agent. I think you are probably someone who thought you could get paid for doing nothing and when that didn’t pan out you wanted to bash wfg.

If wfg was a scam they would absolutely be shut down and faster than any other company because they deal with people and their finances. Get educated before you speak.

I guess Mr/Ms/Mrs Anonymous of Mar 24 #1133237 has such an illustrious employer, who apparently insures that their over 60,000 + employees/contractors/affiliates never do anything wrong that damages the brand. Please tell everyone here who that company is. It seems many people here are seeking to be affiliated with companies like yours.
