EDitor's Comment: Rip-off Report Investigation: Primerica gets a POSITIVE RATING in customer support from Rip-off Report and is fulfilling its commitment to provide excellent customer service. Primerica pledges to resolve complaints and address representative issues. For a long time this EDitor had concerns about Primerica because of the number of Reports about them. For many months Rip-off Report was looking into the company, even before they contacted us to resolve any issues and mostly misunderstandings being posted by competitors. With over 100,000 representatives and 6 million clients, Primerica is bound to be the subject of a certain number of complaints about improper agent conduct, as well as product and administrative complaints.
Rip-Off's investigation found such complaints, but importantly also found that Primerica is committed to resolving such complaints quickly and doing everything possible to satisfy its clients. It also takes appropriate action against any of its representatives who are found to have conducted themselves improperly or unethically. We believe that the number of complaints against this company, whether through the Internet or other channels, is small when put into the context of its enormous size. Most big companies would never commit themselves like Primerica has.

Believe it or not:
I received a message on my cell phone yesterday from a man identifying himself as Brian Bradford with Primerica/CitiGroup. He said he was a recruiter, he understood I was a court reporter, and he was given my name and number as someone who would be interested in a job prospect; please return his call.
I called him moments ago. He sounded like a typical salesman reading stock statements from a cue card. He responded to my inquiries with well-rehersed pat answers. I asked where he got my number since I don't routinely give it out to just anybody, and he said it must have been from an outsider who thought enough to pass my name on. Red Flag No. 4 (the other flags are obvious). I asked why he contacted me, and he said he thought I would be very interested. I asked what the company's about, and
as the other ripoff reports have indicated, he talked on and on about being one of the largest companies in the world; that they're under CitiGroup, a still even larger company. He said they're opening up ten offices in my major metropolitan area and they're looking for part-timers and full-timers to fill a gamut of positions; it's all what you wanted to
I asked specifically if he was talking about making acquisitions,
salespeople, typists. Again, he was very vauge; it was however hard I wanted to work or how much money I wanted to make. I told him I wasn't interested; that it sounded a lot like Amway and its stair-stepping process. His response, word for word, was "This ain't Amway," which was an immediate turnoff. I find it difficult to carry on a conversation with someone who uses such poor grammar. I find it more difficult to listen to
someone slam another company as he then did Amway. I told him I wasn't interested. He ended the phone conversation by saying, "I don't know of any court reporters earning six-income figures...good luck to you." Well, buddy, I have, and so have many of my colleagues. We earn our income honestly and without risking our integrity or stealing from less fortunate people who want to earn a quick buck and are taken in by conniving people.
I came to this Web-site after getting off the phone and looking on-line for Primerica to research this further. I would have looked on-line before calling back, but unfortunately (fortunately for Brian) he mentioned the company name in a muddle fashion so that I couldn't understand. It was when I called and asked for the name of the company that I finally understood. It was ironic that your Rip-Off Report site was directly under Primerica's site.
