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. Read our investigative Report and Primerica's commitment to 100% consumer satisfaction.

Much like others here I was suckered in to attending a Primerica "presentation." The only different shade of spite I can add is how this "division of citigroup" went about reeling me in.
I replied to an employement ad within the New York Times for an "Office Assistant" with citigroup. I was contacted by Robert Underwood/Stacey Donnel for an initial interview. I provided some references checks and an "updated" copy of my resume. (Updated, because they don't have the initial one you sent in. Why? Because it's useless to them.)
I was talked to for about 10 minutes, asked a few standard job questions including: on a scale of 1 to 10 how interested was I in this opportunity? I replied that it was difficult to know since I had been told absolutely zilch about what position I might be applying for. The term "Office Assistant" had never been spoken. I was then told that my position would be better detailed if I came to a second "presentation" the following night.
So the earliest warning sign in the scam here was that the intial interviewer a) knew nothing about me and b) knew nothing about the imaginary "office assistant" job I applied to. The rest of the story is about the same as everyone else's here.
What botheres me most is that they reeled me in by posting a phoney job ad. As far as all those sticking up for Primerica, I sa it's fine and all if you want to hawk their plans for them.. but the indefensibile fact is that they mislead people into believing their is an actual salaried position available within their company.
