Ok, so I work at a small store in my local mall. I greeted this one lady as I normally do customers and she just immediately said how much she liked my personality. I confusedly thanked her and went on to help other people. She approached me a few minutes later at the cash register saying that she had a business and was looking for new people just like me to work there. She took my name and number and said she'd call me within a few days to talk to me about it.
When she called this morning I was sleeping in because it is my day off. So I tried to play it off like I wasn't tired but went on to ask her questions about the company. She said they were a financial services type of company and they help people decide how to invest their money. She said she is a single mom of two kids and this job is great. That she really feels like she's helping people and making a difference and also that it doesn't cost the clients one penny. I found that strange.
A couple questions rose in my head. How did they get paid if their clients didn't make money? And how did she survive with 2 kids if she wasn't getting paid if that was the case? (which she never said she wasn't getting paid).
So I took down the address of the interview she wanted to set up and also her phone number (I'm guessing it was a cell). After I got off the phone I realized I'd never gotten her name (unless she told it to me last week when I first met her) nor the name of the business. So I google'ed the address of the meeting place and found out it is Primerica. That's when I found sites such as this one.
Now mind you, I was working in a store in the mall that deals with kids and gives birthday parties to little girls. When I found out this company is an insurance place I have no clue why they thought I'd be right for the job. Also I have NO spare money to put into any kinda group for letting me join or getting a license of any kind, I can barely pay my bills as it is.
What I want to know is, do people often get randomly approached like this very often by Primerica or am I the first? I still don't understand why after 1 sentence of a greeting she thought I'd be perfect for the job. That already spells "scam" to me.
