Upon first look at Primerica’s website, it looks somewhat legit.
The website doesn’t have a compensation plan listed. It doesn’t say much in general about becoming a rep, leaving you to wonder…
To go to an “interview” you have to fork over $103!
Who the fuck does that? Oh, right…because it’s a scam.
But don’t worry you also will pay a small monthly fee of $28. This fee is basically because you exist.
To get a better idea, Primerica God (you can find him on Twitter @priparodyrep) is gracious enough to contribute to this blog post!
Primerica. Some say it is the greatest business opportunity in the world. By some, I mean only the agents who have the sole intention of recruiting victims who have not heard of the company.
They are like slithering little snakes who hide in the vegetation of your local Starbucks, grocery store, mall, or really any place they haven’t been kicked out of yet.
Why is this man’s face on a picture of a slithering little snake?
Well, this is Mr. Charlie C. I chose him to be the Primerica snake cover boy because he encompasses everything wrong with the MLM company.
- Claims to be a $100,000 earner
- Fact check= Never was a $100,000 earner
- Claims to have a $1000,000 earner ring
- Fact check= Not his. The ring is advertised on his Twitter account, but is held by white finger???? hmm….
- Claims he quit teaching due to the low salary cap. He said the best decision of his life was to move from a $60,000 teachers salary, to making 6 figures with Primerica
- Fact check= He was fired/laid off from his job in Nashville and was forced to sell Primerica at his dad’s location in Memphis. A quick FINRA broker search shows that he filed for bankruptcy in 2011.
The point of this is that Primerica is made up of frauds who live by the phrase “fake it til you make it”. Unfortunately, faking it til you make it in Primerica involves leaders lying and manipulating their agents, and agents lying and manipulating potential recruits. Many agents tell strangers and family members that Primerica is their way out and that all 9-5 workers are slaves.
Are 9-5 workers slaves? Are Primerica agents slaves? You decide.
As you can see, in the last year each agent only sold .21 policies per year. How is this possible? Well, when you are recruiting people to sell the same thing as you, you are recruiting your own competition. This makes as much sense as a Macy’s shoe sales associate recruiting everyone she knows to also sell shoes in the same department as her. That would result in the number of sales associates increasing exponentially, while targeting the same pool of people possibly interested in buying shoes.
Primerica constantly gives a slap in the face to anyone who is a true entrepreneur. Their leaders call them “entrepreneurs” because they are 1099 employees and they want them to think they are their own boss. They are actually working for their RVP, who wants to increase his down line by recruiting the new agent/ENTREPRENEUR’S warm market. This company is a curse, a legal scam, a wool in sheep’s clothing. Do your research.
Do not fall for this.
Thank you Primerica God, you truly are a gem doing the lords work!
I personally have had the pleasure of tweeting back and forth with Mr. Charlie C. Its hard to keep track of Mr. Charlie C. because he’ll randomly delete one account, and then pop up with another Twitter account and claim not to be Mr. Charlie C. However, a snake is a snake is a snake.
Edit: It looks like he may have two accounts, im not sure.
Charlie’s “insults” are really not working, but he continues to try and get under Primerica God’s skin. Hint: It doesn’t work.
Primerica God’s feathers don’t get ruffled in the least bit by Charlie. In fact, i think it reassures Pri God that he’s doing the right thing.
Make sure you check out Primerica God on Twitter. It’ll give you a good laugh i promise!
