Complaint Review: Team National

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Some see Team National as a rip off, Others insist it is a great deal. I bought the package without sufficient information and as a result was disappointed when I discovered it was a lot like an Amway operation or a Tupperware party.

We all know our enemies do not buy from us and while I admit your friends are your customers I do not feel comfortable suggesting to every friend and relative that they should join. I do believe I should have some human relationships which I do not exploit for profit. Several members of my family flat out told me they would never consider this.

So, while I had a bad taste in my mouth I put it down to my own stupidity. When the person who kept nagging me did not answer my questions honestly and forthrightly I should have simply said "I'll keep my cash and you do the same."

The topics and categories needed to file the report do not include naivete and plain stupidity.

AUTHOR: Laura - (United States of America)

If this is all about people helping people...then why did they just walk out of the room when I told them I only had $96 in my bank account & no other money?  My husband is unemployed, we rely on food stamps to feed our daughter and I thought this was the be all end all to any of our problems.  But, like I said, as soon as I said I only had that small amount of money in my account (on payday no less), they were out the door.  Only the person that invited me stayed in the room.  She couldn't explain these "contracts", no one told us about the 3 days to back out, and NOTHING was mentioned about the possiblity of financing.  These guys were smooth talkers, I'll give you that.  Scooting down in the floor to color with my daughter I suppose to work to show me how family oriented they are. 

I am sure these are nice people and the ladies that invited us are some of my friends, but honestly, I can hardly look at them today!  The guy that led the meeting supposidly made $600,000 last year?!  Seriously, I left there feeling that much more horrible about myself & our money issues than before I heard them.  Hell, I know we can't afford to shop enough to save the money!  So, what is the point? 

This organization is hardly for those that have no money and truly need to better their lives.  If I had $2000 sitting around to throw around to anyone that wanted it, I don't think I would be as worried about my money.  To truly make the money stated, you would have to travel all over the place smooth talking folks to sign up.  I don't have that time with a small child and I would prefer to keep my entire family in tact. 

I hate to hear anyone has lost money on this or had a bad experience.  I am SO glad I didn't have the money in my pocket, because their pushing and talking about greatmess, had me believing when I was sitting there.  But, when they walked out of the was no longer "PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE", it was, I couldn't fatten his wallet, so what is the point anymore? 

I am sure there are those that have made a great living at this.  I am sure there are some that have saved a lot of money on this.  However, if you do not have the money to truly shop for those big ticket items, you won't be able to save as such.  There are coupon codes released from all sorts of businesses daily...I should know, I am the coupon queen!  I have saved thousands in the past 10 years by using these.  So why dont I just continue doing what works without loosing $2000 and my friends. 

I appreciate the invite, but it is not and will not ever be for me and my husband.  Thank you all for your "testimonials" but the cons greatly outweigh the pros.

What Team National "SAYS" & More

AUTHOR: Hal B. - (United States of America)

Team National sounds to good to be true BUT:  It is ALL they say and more. It is wonderful in everyway and getting better and better everyday. The company is one of a kind I believe.  I have never in my 75 years seen another company that has more integrity than this 13 year old company.  It is one of just over 200 member companies of the that oversees hundered of thousands of MLM companies.

  I have been a member for near two years and could not be more pleased with every aspect of Team National.  I have saved many many times the cost of my lifetime plan covering 5 generations of my family. 

 My personal family has always been a loving Christian family and I feel it has grown greatly since joining Team National. If some one tells you something negitive about OUR COMPANY I feel they are probably not a member of the greatest team in the USA today.  I you like being a part of People Helping People you will be happy here.

Consumer question

AUTHOR: seahawk - (USA)

I went to someone's house to find out about this company it sounded ok, but I could not begin to afford it. My question is, how are all these people joining for $2195? The guy that I talked to said it was $3000....I'm sure it could be worth it over a lifetime but I don't have $3000 to spare so I declined to join. The meeting I went to was in 2004 I think, maybe earlier. Anyone who can answer the price descrepancy would be appreciated.

Team National works when you work it

AUTHOR: Skip Northrup - (USA)

I have been with Team National since July 09 and they paid me immediately for Hosting people. Secondly, my wife and I have ordered on the Big N Marketplace and got top quality merchandise with no s&h, and in some cases no sales tax, almost a 19% savings.

We have met many many people that have shown us their comma checks weekly, and also a lady last week that did save $3,000 from one of our Business Exchange Car Dealerships in Texas.

Whoever is complaining is not ordering, they can't be or doing something wrong. This is not like Amway or any Product monthly ordering Company that stocks your garage in order to get commissions. Get you head out of the sand before the bullfrogs bite you.

If they are such a scam, then why is  it that for 12 years and rated as high as they are with the Watchdog-direct selling asscociation, better business burea and debt free, cash rich and close to a million members, how does one person take issue with this creditability and integrity?

You must be dealing with another Company that ripped you off, it sure isn't Team National buddy. Take a closer look and if you think you are right have your Lawyer contact me as a rebuttal to my rebuttal

You had a 3 day period like all other Contracts to change your mind, so when you didn't why don't you follow the law and accept your consequences if any.
