Is anyone familiar with this organization?  Is it a legitimate indy or is it a pyramid scheme?
Your advice is appreciated.

This is a Spanish firm, but is not active at this time due to regulatory problems.  Look at the public version of CRD ( broker check ), the firm's CRD # is 47747.

I don't think that's the same firm.  It's owned by Aegon who also owns Transamerica.

From what I've seen, it's on par with Primerica.  I've yet to see anything but pikers come out of WFG.

From your posts, sounds like your kind of firm.

This firm is a joke.  They hire right out of high school, will take anyone on.  They are always recruiting because its a pyramid.

I know of a few people who came out of that firm. They are all brainless robotrons. They are taught to sell high commission products to anyone who wants to buy them and they are proud of it to boot.

That's kind of my impression...I'm envisioning some fat sweaty guy using his basement for a weekly circle jerk with all his polyester-suited recruits.

When the guys on the World team play hoops with the Primerica guys,. they are pretty much guaranteed to get a facial trying to defend the basket. Even Primerica looks good next to them.
