Complaint Review: Team National - Nationwide
Team National bigntnallaccess Team National - Caution ft lauderdale Nationwide
*Author of original report: File a complaint thru the BBB of SE Florida
I am a Team National active IMD (sell the memberships for money). You can legitimately save money, but not anywhere near where its proposed - for most people anyway. If I want to shop on line at Home Depot, and go thru the TN (Team National) website, I'll earn 4% back on most items. Furniture and items like that can offer a really good savings, but only if you don't shop around at all and compare against the nicest stores full price. If you shop around or wait for sales, the price is not that different (remember, shopping for items like this at TN does not include shipping which is charged not all the time, but enough you need to be real careful.
This is not about the savings. It'd be hard to justify spending that much money on what you can save. If you go to a TN meeting, you'll hear many examples. Most are crazy scenarios that most average people would never save. I even witnessed some embellishment at our meeting (I knew the person).
The strategy of signing up people should be legit, but believe me, the longer you are there the more training you get. IMD's will say almost anything to get you to sign up on the first night as they know if people do research on the company, or on the savings, the chances of signing after the first meeting are much lower.
I have first hand experience with a Platmum (high level) IMD lying to some of my friends that they were presenting to. When I confronted them, they said, they were "ethical" and not to worry because they'll save money, everyone does. I asked Robert F, the sales manager about this and he gave me the exact same 3 or 4 lines - consistent and good training on their end.
It's super easy to "win" a free cruise when you become an IMD. Just sign up 2 people in 2 weeks and get a free cruise for 2. You just have to pay for transportation there and alcoholic beverages. Not bad. Of course, that's where the brainwashing begins.
I say brainwashing because my cousin who makes a TON of money from selling memberships, is no longer the same person I used to know. She is so brainwashed she cannot even see that many of the people that she helps pressure to sign up(many while helping other IMD's) are sorry afterwards. She says the same old company lines and keeps smiling.
Overall, can you make a lot of money? Heck ya. A couple percent of people do. They will train you well on how to handle all situations and apply pressure and urgency to sign up without appearing to.
If you care about your friends feelings and about sharing vs selling the plans, this is probably not for you.
I can tell you that even though I made money being an IDM, and have not had friends become mad at me that I signed up, most of them wish they had not joined and I can tell that it has tainted our friendship. To me, friendship is more important than sketchy ways to make money - I'm out!
