Nearly 20 years ago,I purchased a policy under what was then called "A.L.Williams". At the time, it was one of those MLM cash-cows that promised that, as I grew older, my term life insurance needs would decrease, and they'd invest the difference.
By paying the same rate over the course of the ploicy, I was promised, the amount applied to the term life insirance polcy would decrease, with the difference invested so that I could build a nest egg for my future and that of my family.
Well, nearly 20 years later, with A.L. Williams having been bought by Primerica, I checked on my "investments". I have nothing with them but a straight term life insurance policy that pays off only if I die.
The representatives knew what I was talking about, but passed me back and forth between insurance and investments. The two are completely separate, they said, leaving me with nothing but a $6000 to $7000 investement in, you guessed it, my demise.
If any of you purchased plans under A.L. Williams back in the mid to late 1980's, you'd better check it out with Primerica. I will be collecting my original materials. If enough of us find that we've been similarly hoodwinked, may be we can band together and do something about it.
Don't take your status with Primerica as a former A.L. Williams customer for granted. I did, and it has come back to bite me. I know that I am not alone in this - check and see for yourself. Then, comment about it on this post until one or more interested attorneys see a class action lawsuit in it!
