I moved to Pensacola to meet my girls family. Her employer, a man about my age, asked if I was interested in learning more about WFG.

I am open minded to anything,and said yes. I did my research online, seen the sites,looked at wikipedias info, all that, and figured a trip to the red carpet event would indeed be worth my time.

The presentation was mediocre, they had high-level people show up,but it was clearly a set up.I knew that they dealt with West Insurance the most,but when they called up all the insurance reps to the stage and the only one who showed up was from West,it was obviously fake. And they didnt tell you what the details of the business was, s they said they would.

ANYWAYS, after the event, I was invited to a room where I met with his up-line guy who bullied people to sign up with the company. I told my girls employer the only way I would join is if HE paid the $100. He did it to save face, but logically, what super-wealthy company makes YOU pay for a back-ground check?

Finally, I was given the all sacred WFG System Builder Book. WOW! I've worked for MLM's before in my youth,
selling water softeners and all that, it was the same thing at its core.

In the System Builder Book, Step one: Hit up your family and friends. *OK people, would you really sell your friends and family something you know nothing about? When you set an appointment with them,its not you who deals with them, its someone above you, who sells them hard and sells them "financial products"you may know they cannot afford.They tell you if your friends say no to a meeting,that they're not your friends and you should dump them.

Step two: Obey your up-line.*To follow blindly what others say is, well, just not my taste. Maybe people are just SO used to doing it every Sunday! Not my style.
You must be "coachable" they say, and be willing to "sell out" yourself to the company. SCARY!

Step three: Dream big! *They tell you your dreams can be met if you try! I'm sure some people do, who are willing to trade their family and friends for money. Me, I'm not.

Step four: LIE. *They tell you to lie. They tell you to pretend to have become wealthy from this company. And to never mention words like Multi Level Marketing, Pyramid Scheme or Amway.

In the end, net reader, its the same system as selling water softeners, vacuums, anything, but they do it with insurance and "financial products".So RUN! Run away from it all! It is indeed a scheme!
