There was a guy who approached me in a "Career-Builder" job fair in the Harborside Event Center in Fort Myers, FL earlier on this week (who coincidentally didn't purchase a booth there). I thought the dude was trying to hit on me or something, but said that he was a business owner and was looking for people to work for his business in finance.
He mentioned that it didn't matter what career field that I was already in, after I told him that I had an interior design degree. (This sounded very weird to me.) Anyhow, against my better judgement, I gave him my resume anyway. To my surprise, he called me that same day, wanting me to go to a "meeting" or something at 7:00 that night, which I thought was a little shady. (I told him that I couldn't do it then.)
When he did schedule me in during normal business hours, I was brought into a room with a bunch of other people, and a speaker. Surprisingly, what they said all sounded pretty good: "helping others", "making money", becoming a "business owner" or "investor". I didn't recognize was it was at first, a pyramid scheme, because it was uniquely disguised. They didn't really get much into anything else.
It did send a up big red flag when they asked for money to give you training. I scheduled an interview with them anyway, but I thought that I needed to get more info on the internet. When I got home, I googled Primerica, and got the real scoop: "Watch out!!", "Don't even bother!", and "Scam" were many of the unanimous complaints.
Unfortunitely, since reading these complaints, I decided to be a "no-show" for my interview for today at 2:00! If Primerica does call me, (which they probably will), I would like to tell them to just Google "Primerica" and "scam" together and they will know why. (***, they might even see my new complaint!) On the other hand, it might be easier though to just tell them that I was offered a job that is actually in my field!
