Ok when I first heard about WFG (World Financial Group) It sounded way to good to be true, but my friend invited me so I decided to give it a try (since I do want to make money now). I am currently in a part time job so I get paid every week. my friend said that I will be getting paid as soon as I work for them, until I met the agent. (you must talk to an agent to join in). I went to the meeting to talk to an agent but the was no sign of WFG. It wasnt even their own office at all, it was just rented. I even told my friend," how do you get paid here." He was just completely blank.
First the agent makes you or forces you to join a world finacial dream map. THe dream map shows you how you can save money by putting in the amount every month.the dream map requires you to pay monthly. I had to pay 90.00$ a month, just to have life insurance and a bank at the same time. the advantage about saving in this company is you follow the rule of 72, which means that eight or nine years from now you money doubles. But you are not allowed to touch your money in two years from now so your money can start building up. But the funny cacth is you dont know where your money goes. They are also very negative with banks. my agent says that the money I save in the bank goes invested. dont get me wrong is a good idea but having a bank is way more secured.
This Is the next funny thing. I was trying to conversate him (agent) about the job or money making business you guys make. He never even bothered about talking about that. He completely ignored me and kept talking about the dream map. I was not interest in being the world dream map (they will call you client if you join) But I joined anyways because he seemed desperate. I said to myself, "I mean I will be making money anyways, so why not". In addition, when I sign up and already paid for the 100$ fee (background check) he never mentioned about the money making or any meeting, until I have mentioned to him that my friend was going to a meeting.I guess he only cared about me paying him and getting on with his life.
The other thing that really dissapointed me is that you have to pay for a backgound check. I went WTF you have to pay for your own background check thats dumb. through all the jobs and companies I have been through, this is actually the first one that required me to pay for a background check. So ok I paid 100.00 $ more just for a background check. Note: they only require 60.00$ for a background check in the U.S. Since I said to myself I am gonna be getting paid alot.
Another thing is the invite. when I went to the first metting everyone there was so nice. they actually cared about your own opinion but still no money making or any info about it. there was a presentation about the same thing, the dream map. they were taliking about how they have been i a though situation and when they found this company WFG, everything got better. I was trying to tell him how can i get started but changed the subject also she told me that there is only 10 % chance of going in. 10 % thats it ok its worth it since I will bemaking money. I invited my friend who did not have a job but he was looking for an opportunity. my agent acyually said that he was not qualified for it. I thought but why if you can make money here. A week later he got angry at me for not even getting as notice or a call from me but i did not know until he told me.
Also this is funny too. The way they mention that they are making money with all the company combined, (like coca cola, microsoft, and ect...). put it this way if you have to pay for your background check or pay for any manual, shouldn't they have to do that. i mean they are making money right. also they way they give you a cd to listen to it was a burned cd. thats right a burned cd.not even an actual cd that says WFG. in the cd they only talk about how to make people to convince them how to join.
There was another metting but I agent like always never mentions anything so I got out of the company and decided to leave. He seemed very dissapointed and he was refusing to me to leave. he kept talking about how you can make money but it never happens.
Im not saying this is a scam but, this is my first time that I actually had to pay to work for myself. its dumb that they say they make money, but under my opinion I believe that is a way to drag you in. I mean a business is a business, they will do anything for money to roll in, no matter what even liying to yor clients, if it comes up. But what people dont understand is there is Karma in this world so everything you do will affect you the same way.
Make sure that if your trying to join WFG make sure you have money in the bank so you can spend nearly 300.00$ just to start.
