PRIMERICA IS DEFINITELY A MLM SCAM AND THEY ARE ABUSIVE! RIPOFF CARTERSVILLE Georgia
*UPDATE: Primerica recognized by Rip-off Report a business opportunity well worth considering - it's not for everyone but many representatives make solid commission incomes. Primerica takes appropriate action against representatives conducting themselves improperly, pledges 100% commitment to customer service.
*Consumer Suggestion: Primerica is like the Katrina hurricane of scams now, but with all these ripoffreports, I can't see them in business much longer.
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Commentary on Gary (Colorado Springs)
*Consumer Suggestion: The new recruits from primerica all say a lot of good things about it, right up until they realize they have been cheated too.
*UPDATE Employee: scam of Primerica
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Rebutting D (Cincinnati) You're just another troller for Primerica full of bull.
*Consumer Comment: AFRAID TO BE GREATER THAN YOU ARE NOW
*Consumer Suggestion: What do you call someone who helps to con you into a primerica scam? I'd say that person is both a fool and a leech.
*Consumer Comment: WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?
*Consumer Suggestion: Every policy from primerica costs more and offers less. It's the same with citi mortgages. So, where's this big help?
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Rebutting H from Colorado Springs ...another unsubstantiated claim by a Primerican.
*UPDATE Employee: From a PFA's point-of-view
*Consumer Comment: almost hooked by primerica
*Consumer Comment: A suggestion to Primerica reps
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Rebutting D-DBlock, New Hampshire

*Consumer Suggestion: There is only one way to make money with the primerica scam. You won't like it, but I'll show you what it is and let you decide for yourself.
*Consumer Comment: MORE PITCHES THAN A NINTH INNING RELIEF PITCHER
*Consumer Comment: PRIMERICA IS STILL A SCAM TO ME. LIKE A CULT OF TRAINED SEALS
*Consumer Comment: It's not just perception that makes PFS a poor choice.
*UPDATE Employee: Primerica admits its an MLM; and aren't we all puppets of a sort?
*Consumer Suggestion: Sorry you feel that way
I'M NO DUMMY, MY STEPFATHER SOLD AMWAY AND I'VE BEEN IN MARYKAY, SO I KNOW A MLM WHEN I SEE ONE.
I TOO HEARD ALL THE "AMENS" DURING THE FIRST MEETING AND NOW I'M GLAD I KNOW THAT'S ALL A SET-UP.
I MADE IT PLAIN AND VERY CLEAR THAT I WASN'T GIVING ANYONE $199 ON MY CREDIT CARD IN A HIGH PRESSURE SITUATION TO SING NOW AND SIGN TODAY! THE REASON GIVEN FOR THIS WAS VERY STUPID. THEY WANTED THEIR SALES MANAGER TO KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY WERE GOING TO HIRE THAT WEEK. OK, WHATEVER, THAT WAS SO LAME. I KEPT REFUSING TO SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE AND I BASCIALLY SAW THROUGH ALL THE MUMBO JUMBO. THEY DO A LOT OF TALKING OUTSIDE OF THEIR NECKS AND KEEP HARPING ON "HELPING POEPLE" AND PROMISING YOU'LL MAKE WILD AMOUNTS OF MONEY FOR DOING PRACTICALLY NOTHING BUT SHOWING UP AT THEIR OFFICES TO WORK 10 HOURS A WEEK.
WHATEVER THE PITCH GUY HAD TO SAY I COUNTERED IT WITH COMMON SENSE. WHEN I ASKED HOW WE WERE PAID AND WHEN WE WERE PAID HE GOT VISIBLY NERVOUS AND STARTED TALKING SOME NONSENSE ABOUT DIRECT DEPOSITS AND BEING PAID WEEKLY BUT FUNNY HOW HE COULDN'T PEN DOWN AN EXACT DATE FOR SALARY DISBURSAL.
THAT WAS ALL I NEEDED TO HEAR. I'D HEARD ENOUGH. I TOLD HIM THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS SIGNING THAT AGREEMENT TO CHARGE MY CREDIT CARD.
AT THAT POINT THE PITCH GUY GOT UPSET AND STARTED ACTUALLY TO VERBALLY ABUSE ME BY SAYING "I WOULDN'T WANT TO HIRE YOU ANYWAY" AND EVEN TALKED BAD ABOUT ME TO THE "GUYS HIDING IN THE BACK ROOM" WITHIN MY EAR SHOT.
I POLITELY SMILED AND TOLD MY LAMES "RECRUITER" THANK YOU BUT I DON'T THINK THIS IS FOR ME BUT THANK YOU ANYWAY."
HE NEVER SAID A WORD, JUST RAN OFF LIKE A LITTLE PUPPET AFTER THE FUMING PITCH GUY.
IT WAS SO HILARIOUS AND JUST PROVED TO ME MY GUT INSTINCTS WERE RIGHT. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER MLM WITH PROMISES OF THE STREETS BEING PAVED WITH GOLD WITH EASY MONEY.
I AM A COLLEGE GRADUATE AND VERY INTELLIGENT. I WASN'T ABOUT TO FALL FOR ALL THAT BULLSH*T. YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO PAY FOR A JOB.
