Rip-off Report REVIEW:

Editors UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to People Helping People; PHP Agency for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Reports discussions with PHP have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client and associate satisfaction. This means that clients and associates can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. PHP listens carefully to complaints and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

PHP is committed to mutually beneficial relationships with all of their clients and business trainees past, present and those in the future. PHP has joined the Corporate Advocacy Program because they are committed to resolve any and all client and associate issues. PHP's founder and CEO, Patrick Bet-David stated, We take it very seriously to serve the client properly 100% of the time and consider them a part of the PHP family

After speaking with the management at PHP and emailing anyone who filed a complaint in the past, Ripoff Report is proud to give PHP a positive Rating. Patrick Bet-David, the Founder and CEO of PHP, stated We carefully consider all client complaints as constructive criticism and use them as tools to improve. Our clients and associates are the face of our business and their satisfaction is of the utmost importance. We value them above all else, and look forward to continually improving so that their experiences with PHP remain strong, consistent and positive. We are not perfect and given the number of agents and clients we have, naturally there are complaints about unsuitable agent conduct but we have always and will continue to resolve such complaints and take appropriate action against any agents who are found to have conducted themselves improperly or unethically.

In an effort to minimize complaints about the $150 to get started as a PHP associate, PHP requires that all of their directors and associates reinforce that the $150 is for the initial training only. PHP also offer a 72-hour full-refund period.

Patrick Bet-David told Ripoff Report that the PHP business model to build a business is referral based. This approach to develop referrals and clients through an agents warm market has allowed the company to share information about financial concepts to a very broad group and is the core of their success. Patrick also stated they have strict restrictions on cold calling and marketing tactics to meet all compliance issues. We work hard with our agents to avoid any miscommunication that could result in a complaint.

PHP has pledged that improper or unethical behavior by their associates is severely condoned. There are bound to be instances of unsuitable agent conduct due to the number of agents and clients they have, but appropriate action is and will always be taken to resolve any complaints.
Most importantly, PHP recognizes that complaints posted on Rip-off Report (whether true or not) are issues that need to be addressed, not ignored. If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Rip-off Reports Investigation PHP has made organizational changes allowing its clients and associates a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a positive experience. ??

In summary, after Ripoff Reports review, which included discussions with Patrick Bet-David and some associates, Ripoff Report is convinced that PHP is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client and associate satisfaction.

People Helping People PHP Agency, LLC People Helping People, PHP, PHP Agency Watch out for these guys! Woodland Hills, California

This company called People Helping People is in the insurance business. Their business is all about recruiting and selling products to the people they recruit.

It is run by a guy named Patrick BetDavid. He is the head chief of the company.

If you have been approached by this company, be aware they are not offering you a job. Anyone leading you to think it's a job is not telling the truth.

You are being offered a career as an insurance sales person. The fee to "join" the company, even though they say you are being interviewed, is $275.00. Be ready to also get a policy for yourself, otherwise they won't work with you.

You also need to give up all your personal contacts, otherwise, they won't work with you.

People are starting to leave the company. One of their big players in the company went back to World Financial Group, where he came from.

It appears to be a good company, other than the fact, they are not up front with you about what it will take to be successful with them.

You should be aware that most of the agents don't understand what they are selling.

Everyone over there is hoping for the big payday! They have been told they get "ownership" if they work hard for 3 years.

They are trying to be another Primerica.
