I received a call from this number.  The message was:  "This message is intended for L.B., my name is Olivia Boyd and i am calling in regard to a legal claim that is going to be filed over there in Will Cty where I have you listed as a person of interest for a T.T.  Now T.T. is currently under investigation case #PA-67621.  If you would be so kind as to give me a call back, I can be reached at 404-381-1113."I called back and reached a recording saying:  "You have reached A Line.  Please leave your name, case number and any pertinent information.  I do thank you in advance and good luck to you."Why Olivia Boyd is calling AZ regarding a case in IL, in reference to someone L.B. does not know, remains a mystery.  The whole thing is very fishy!

These scammers need to stop! There has to be a law to stop these people from scamming people out of money! Received a call like the previous callers and I know I've been scammed before in the past, but not anymore! Once you pay, they keep calling from different numbers all over the country. I was receiving calls from Kingston, Jamaica!!! What reputable company or collection agency does that!? Don't let these people scam you! If they call and you answer call their bluff and see what happens. NOTHING!

Totally agree, when I told the guy on the other end that I had turned this over to the FBI, he hung up, tried to say he was with some attorney office, but when I mentioned the FBI and that they were monitoring my phone, he hung up instantly.  It's a scam to get money from people.  Don't give them any information.

The phone calls from this number is fraud. I received calls a couple of weeks ago from a different number regarding the same threats of a pending legal case.   Do not respond. They are getting information from people who have applied for any kind of credit online. Payday loans, credit cards etc. Be careful not apply for loans or credit online unless its with a known bank or financial company. I contacted my local FBI office and was told these threats are under investigation. Apparently, the calls have become outrageous.  Be smart everyone, because they try to use your information to scare you, like the  last digits of your ss#, home address and employer information which is all the information you submitted on the credit application. Think about it, if you are being sued you will be notified via documentation not by threatening phone calls. Lastly, you can contact your phone carrier and have them block the number.

This is a classic scam - usually the 'cashier's or bank check" is not good but a really good fake.  They send out thousands of them, ask you to cash or deposit them, buy something for them, ship it and keep the rest.  It often takes several days, or even weeks, for the bad check to make it's way back to your account. At that point you are screwed.  If only a small percent get fooled they make a fortune.  Stay clear of these people.

Please excuse some of the grammatical mistakes.  Quickly wrote the message to encourage everyone to look at the Opportunities, not the Distractions from those who don't understand the business.  And in any business, industry, or society, there will be BAD Apples / unscrupulous people.  Being educated about your business and building trust in the community will certainly gauranttee your success.  My classmate and I finished USC nursing.  That person lost their RN license for Medicare fraud.  Fraud in the Healthcare Industry at all levels occurs, too.  Does that make the healthcare industry a SCAM?  Today is a much more sophisticated and intelligent world.  It's a new era of change and transparency.  If agents or nurses participate with illegal activities, I hope they're prosecuted and ejected from the industry, too.  WFG is like any other organizaation.  Policies have been adapted to mitigate fraud in the company.No organization is perfect, because people aren't perfect.  Providers, whether in the medical field or financial field aren't perfect.  Even customers and patients aren't perfect.  You're not living in an Utopian world.  Study the opportunities, look at the bigger picture, and take action to better change your life.  Whether you align yourself with WFG or not, but it's an equal opportunity to succeed.  The key word here is OPPORTUNITY, not succeed.  Success is not guaranteed.  That depends on you, your work ethics, morals, and vision.  Whatever you choose, find a good mentor / leader in your field and follow them.

That's Right.  When will these people learn that WFG is about having your OWN Business.  What you invest in it - will dictate the amount of fruit from your labor.  It's About WAGE  Vs  Profit.  It's your business.  Treat as such.  So many people don't understand that Corporate America is a SCAM.  They determine your hourly worth and give your an hourly wage.  Look at minimum wage...changed very little in last 30 years...  from $2.35 in '85 to about $8 now.  If you think having a RN license will lead you to a life of financial independence - you're still dreaming.  Many nurses work 2 - 3 jobs and still cannot achieve their financial dreams or security.  Lets address the initial cost of investment in WFG or in any endeavor.  People all over the country spend Thousands of Dollars for college or trade school, only to find no jobs from that investment in TIME and Money....What's the difference?  WFG for only a minimal Start-up to invest in your Own future / budding company.I spoke to a gentleman who opened a coffee franchise for $150,000 from his 25 years of state service / savings.  He had to close down the store only after four months.  No matter how much small minds complain about loosing a measly $100 or $400, it pales in comparison to the large number of small businesses that invest so much more time and money every year.  So, for all the complaints about financial losses, look at your own life and track your daily loses.  Earnings eaten away by taxes, purchases eaten away by taxes, buying homes or cars are eaten away by taxes, losses in values, mortgage fees, interest fees, etc.Look at the bigger picture - how much time have you wasted to today?  How much money have you wasted this month?  etc.   OPEN your minds people.

They are the Great Leaders of WMA.Chito Roxas became successful because of Marlyn Fularon, now she is gone, Chito Roxas business went down, big time.FYI. Marlyn Fularon never joined WLG.

As far as I know, WFG is not a scam. Some of your posts are not true, like about Marlyn Fularon. I've known her since 1993 when she started at WMA. She is a hard working and decent person. The allegations against her are not true. She did not disappear with the commission. She has remained a resident of the Bay Area as a real estate agent where she's had her image, name, and phone number advertised. The information provided below is a biased opinion from someone who is not aware of all the facts. I recommend that you check with the Department of Real Estate and Insurance which proves Marlyn Fularon's license is still in tact.

At this time, the products sold themselves, and the multi-level aspect was a way of giving a small reward to those who had worked hard to build the organization. But the focus was always on the product.Today, and especially with the growth of the internet, it is possible for consumer to get about whatever they want at competitive prices. There is simply no real need for distribution "systems" as there once was, and indeed the focus of all the programs is not on the products they sell -- which are usually either bogus or are available somewhere else to the public at the same or lesser prices. Instead, the focus now is solely on recruiting new people…………with the idea that those people will recruit additional people who will also buy into the program……….Thus, today just about ALL of the multi-level marketing programs are scams. In today's internet economy, there is simply no need for multi-level marketing or the overpriced products that they sell -- meaning that the only thing they are selling are memberships in anticipation that future memberships will be sold in the future, which is the classic definition of a pyramid scheme, and thus securities fraud…………..The Drop Out RateThe "Drop Out Rate" of MLM programs is enormous -- 98% will drop out immediately, meaning that only 2% will continue with the program over any long period of time. The Promoters will tell this 2% that they are the "successful" ones -- what this means is that they have become "successful" scamming other people (who will probably spend their money and then drop out, possibly a big personal loss to them but a profit to the Promoters).The Promoters know the Drop Out Rate, and know that by far most people will buy in, but then never sell anything and quit, which is one of the reasons why MLM programs are criminal schemes.The Promoters also tell those who stay in that they are the "well-motivated and lucky ones". This is 100% false. The people who never sold anything and dropped out are the lucky ones, since they will not be liable for securities fraud or any of the related criminal penalties that goes with promoting somebody else into the program. It is the people who stay in the program who are risking some prison time and a felony conviction for selling an unregistered security.On the "American Income Life Is A Scam" thread, we've also been discussing how similar MLM companies are to cults. I'd be interested to know your opinion once you've read it, seeing as you've had firsthand experience with an MLM. Do you think the same points about cults apply to this company?

What's it like having such a lousy excuse for a "job" that you have to go on sites like this and insist "it's not a SCAM"? Fact is, almost nobody has a job like yours, because it would make most of us physically sick to have to defend this kind of thing. You know, we don't see representatives of legitimate companies having to come on here and claim they're not a scam. Pretty much only the scammers seem to have to do that.You must be a really strong person to be able to perform a job that would make most people sick, to be able to shut your conscience almost completely down to make a "living".

We help families and business understand how money can be used to secure their retirement and for business to reduce their taxes. Unfortunately, this business isn't for everyone.

World Financial Group3350 East Birch StreetSuite 200Brea, Ca 92821While at a job fair called Hire Live located in Orange County, I met a woman at the front of the Hotel where the fair was being held. She claimed to be working for a Marketing company hiring for middle management positions. Then she asked for my resume, that night the same lady named Mary Cacosa called and left a message on my voice mail stating, "My manager and I looked over your resume and we were impressed with your resume and your career accomplishments. We like to offer you a chance for an interview If you could call me back at 203-768-2229." I then checked the receipt of the message and a different number came up (714-924-3756).The following day I returned her call she claimed to be working for a Marketing company called World Financial group and hiring for middle management positions. Again, her name is Mary Cacosa and she wanted me to return her call at 203-768-2229 originally she called from 714-924-3756. The address she gave me is 3350 E. Birch Street Suite 200 Brea, Ca 92821. The time that we set the interview time for next week--Monday the 17th at 1 p.m. I kept trying to ask more questions but the lady said to write any questions that I have and we'll go over them with you. She also wanted me to bring three references with me and to dress in appropriate business attire.Thank you to all of you, for posting your past experiences with this cruel scheme targeting eager job seekers. For those of you who have not viewed the other postings both male and female cons have used different names and phone number's--this company is only interested in collecting $100 to supposably run a background check on you.  TP.S. The job fair I attended is legit companies who are actually renting booths and interviewing candidates seeking management positions for reputable companies. The lady I met was not at a booth located inside the hotel--she was outside the building wearing a business suit and walked up to me as I was about to enter the hotel. When I had asked her for a business card she reply that she had already handed all of them out.

Please excuse some of the grammatical mistakes.  Quickly wrote the message to encourage everyone to look at the Opportunities, not the Distractions from those who don't understand the business.  And in any business, industry, or society, there will be BAD Apples / unscrupulous people.  Being educated about your business and building trust in the community will certainly gauranttee your success.  My classmate and I finished USC nursing.  That person lost their RN license for Medicare fraud.  Fraud in the Healthcare Industry at all levels occurs, too.  Does that make the healthcare industry a SCAM?  Today is a much more sophisticated and intelligent world.  It's a new era of change and transparency.  If agents or nurses participate with illegal activities, I hope they're prosecuted and ejected from the industry, too.  WFG is like any other organizaation.  Policies have been adapted to mitigate fraud in the company.No organization is perfect, because people aren't perfect.  Providers, whether in the medical field or financial field aren't perfect.  Even customers and patients aren't perfect.  You're not living in an Utopian world.  Study the opportunities, look at the bigger picture, and take action to better change your life.  Whether you align yourself with WFG or not, but it's an equal opportunity to succeed.  The key word here is OPPORTUNITY, not succeed.  Success is not guaranteed.  That depends on you, your work ethics, morals, and vision.  Whatever you choose, find a good mentor / leader in your field and follow them.

That's Right.  When will these people learn that WFG is about having your OWN Business.  What you invest in it - will dictate the amount of fruit from your labor.  It's About WAGE  Vs  Profit.  It's your business.  Treat as such.  So many people don't understand that Corporate America is a SCAM.  They determine your hourly worth and give your an hourly wage.  Look at minimum wage...changed very little in last 30 years...  from $2.35 in '85 to about $8 now.  If you think having a RN license will lead you to a life of financial independence - you're still dreaming.  Many nurses work 2 - 3 jobs and still cannot achieve their financial dreams or security.  Lets address the initial cost of investment in WFG or in any endeavor.  People all over the country spend Thousands of Dollars for college or trade school, only to find no jobs from that investment in TIME and Money....What's the difference?  WFG for only a minimal Start-up to invest in your Own future / budding company.I spoke to a gentleman who opened a coffee franchise for $150,000 from his 25 years of state service / savings.  He had to close down the store only after four months.  No matter how much small minds complain about loosing a measly $100 or $400, it pales in comparison to the large number of small businesses that invest so much more time and money every year.  So, for all the complaints about financial losses, look at your own life and track your daily loses.  Earnings eaten away by taxes, purchases eaten away by taxes, buying homes or cars are eaten away by taxes, losses in values, mortgage fees, interest fees, etc.Look at the bigger picture - how much time have you wasted to today?  How much money have you wasted this month?  etc.   OPEN your minds people.

I definitely agree with you. I am glad somebody is stepping up to defend Marlyn Fularon. She was just a victim of circumstances. I admire her as well as Penney Ooi and Judith Hsiao. They are the Great Leaders of WMA.Chito Roxas became successful because of Marlyn Fularon, now she is gone, Chito Roxas business went down, big time.FYI. Marlyn Fularon never joined WLG.

As far as I know, WFG is not a scam. Some of your posts are not true, like about Marlyn Fularon. I've known her since 1993 when she started at WMA. She is a hard working and decent person. The allegations against her are not true. She did not disappear with the commission. She has remained a resident of the Bay Area as a real estate agent where she's had her image, name, and phone number advertised. The information provided below is a biased opinion from someone who is not aware of all the facts. I recommend that you check with the Department of Real Estate and Insurance which proves Marlyn Fularon's license is still in tact.

At this time, the products sold themselves, and the multi-level aspect was a way of giving a small reward to those who had worked hard to build the organization. But the focus was always on the product.Today, and especially with the growth of the internet, it is possible for consumer to get about whatever they want at competitive prices. There is simply no real need for distribution "systems" as there once was, and indeed the focus of all the programs is not on the products they sell -- which are usually either bogus or are available somewhere else to the public at the same or lesser prices. Instead, the focus now is solely on recruiting new people…………with the idea that those people will recruit additional people who will also buy into the program……….Thus, today just about ALL of the multi-level marketing programs are scams. In today's internet economy, there is simply no need for multi-level marketing or the overpriced products that they sell -- meaning that the only thing they are selling are memberships in anticipation that future memberships will be sold in the future, which is the classic definition of a pyramid scheme, and thus securities fraud…………..The Drop Out RateThe "Drop Out Rate" of MLM programs is enormous -- 98% will drop out immediately, meaning that only 2% will continue with the program over any long period of time. The Promoters will tell this 2% that they are the "successful" ones -- what this means is that they have become "successful" scamming other people (who will probably spend their money and then drop out, possibly a big personal loss to them but a profit to the Promoters).The Promoters know the Drop Out Rate, and know that by far most people will buy in, but then never sell anything and quit, which is one of the reasons why MLM programs are criminal schemes.The Promoters also tell those who stay in that they are the "well-motivated and lucky ones". This is 100% false. The people who never sold anything and dropped out are the lucky ones, since they will not be liable for securities fraud or any of the related criminal penalties that goes with promoting somebody else into the program. It is the people who stay in the program who are risking some prison time and a felony conviction for selling an unregistered security.On the "American Income Life Is A Scam" thread, we've also been discussing how similar MLM companies are to cults. I'd be interested to know your opinion once you've read it, seeing as you've had firsthand experience with an MLM. Do you think the same points about cults apply to this company?

What's it like having such a lousy excuse for a "job" that you have to go on sites like this and insist "it's not a SCAM"? Fact is, almost nobody has a job like yours, because it would make most of us physically sick to have to defend this kind of thing. You know, we don't see representatives of legitimate companies having to come on here and claim they're not a scam. Pretty much only the scammers seem to have to do that.You must be a really strong person to be able to perform a job that would make most people sick, to be able to shut your conscience almost completely down to make a "living". Thank God such a select few like you are condemned to this kind of work, because most of the rest of us would never be able to handle it.You are truly an amazing person!

This is not a scam. World Financial Group is a financial services company headquartered in GA. We help families and business understand how money can be used to secure their retirement and for business to reduce their taxes. Unfortunately, this business isn't for everyone. This is for people who want to be in charge of their lives and not be dependent on a job where someone can lay them off at anytime. I attend job fairs so that I can approach those looking for a career. It's strange how people be so negative on something they know nothing about and instead of finding out the facts they spread untruths.

World Financial Group3350 East Birch StreetSuite 200Brea, Ca 92821While at a job fair called Hire Live located in Orange County, I met a woman at the front of the Hotel where the fair was being held. She claimed to be working for a Marketing company hiring for middle management positions. Then she asked for my resume, that night the same lady named Mary Cacosa called and left a message on my voice mail stating, "My manager and I looked over your resume and we were impressed with your resume and your career accomplishments. We like to offer you a chance for an interview If you could call me back at 203-768-2229." I then checked the receipt of the message and a different number came up (714-924-3756).The following day I returned her call she claimed to be working for a Marketing company called World Financial group and hiring for middle management positions. Again, her name is Mary Cacosa and she wanted me to return her call at 203-768-2229 originally she called from 714-924-3756. The address she gave me is 3350 E. Birch Street Suite 200 Brea, Ca 92821. The time that we set the interview time for next week--Monday the 17th at 1 p.m. I kept trying to ask more questions but the lady said to write any questions that I have and we'll go over them with you. She also wanted me to bring three references with me and to dress in appropriate business attire.Thank you to all of you, for posting your past experiences with this cruel scheme targeting eager job seekers. For those of you who have not viewed the other postings both male and female cons have used different names and phone number's--this company is only interested in collecting $100 to supposably run a background check on you.  TP.S. The job fair I attended is legit companies who are actually renting booths and interviewing candidates seeking management positions for reputable companies. The lady I met was not at a booth located inside the hotel--she was outside the building wearing a business suit and walked up to me as I was about to enter the hotel. When I had asked her for a business card she reply that she had already handed all of them out.

This is a classic scam - usually the 'cashier's or bank check" is not good but a really good fake.  They send out thousands of them, ask you to cash or deposit them, buy something for them, ship it and keep the rest.  It often takes several days, or even weeks, for the bad check to make it's way back to your account. At that point you are screwed.  If only a small percent get fooled they make a fortune.  Stay clear of these people.

I got a check for $2450.00 from a person named Matthew Jody. The check was issued from a CPA's office or what is supposed to be a CPA's office. I am not sure if it its legit.. but I am going to see what happens tomorrow and if it turns out shady I have ALL the emails saved... and will contact the local police. I also told this person that I dont have a bank account and would have to get the check cashed at a local check cashing place... due to the holiday, they were not able to verify the money. I am guessing its a scam the more that I research. I sure feel like an idiot!

Please excuse some of the grammatical mistakes.  Quickly wrote the message to encourage everyone to look at the Opportunities, not the Distractions from those who don't understand the business.  And in any business, industry, or society, there will be BAD Apples / unscrupulous people.  Being educated about your business and building trust in the community will certainly gauranttee your success.  My classmate and I finished USC nursing.  That person lost their RN license for Medicare fraud.  Fraud in the Healthcare Industry at all levels occurs, too.  Does that make the healthcare industry a SCAM?  Today is a much more sophisticated and intelligent world.  It's a new era of change and transparency.  If agents or nurses participate with illegal activities, I hope they're prosecuted and ejected from the industry, too.  WFG is like any other organizaation.  Policies have been adapted to mitigate fraud in the company.No organization is perfect, because people aren't perfect.  Providers, whether in the medical field or financial field aren't perfect.  Even customers and patients aren't perfect.  You're not living in an Utopian world.  Study the opportunities, look at the bigger picture, and take action to better change your life.  Whether you align yourself with WFG or not, but it's an equal opportunity to succeed.  The key word here is OPPORTUNITY, not succeed.  Success is not guaranteed.  That depends on you, your work ethics, morals, and vision.  Whatever you choose, find a good mentor / leader in your field and follow them.

That's Right.  When will these people learn that WFG is about having your OWN Business.  What you invest in it - will dictate the amount of fruit from your labor.  It's About WAGE  Vs  Profit.  It's your business.  Treat as such.  So many people don't understand that Corporate America is a SCAM.  They determine your hourly worth and give your an hourly wage.  Look at minimum wage...changed very little in last 30 years...  from $2.35 in '85 to about $8 now.  If you think having a RN license will lead you to a life of financial independence - you're still dreaming.  Many nurses work 2 - 3 jobs and still cannot achieve their financial dreams or security.  Lets address the initial cost of investment in WFG or in any endeavor.  People all over the country spend Thousands of Dollars for college or trade school, only to find no jobs from that investment in TIME and Money....What's the difference?  WFG for only a minimal Start-up to invest in your Own future / budding company.I spoke to a gentleman who opened a coffee franchise for $150,000 from his 25 years of state service / savings.  He had to close down the store only after four months.  No matter how much small minds complain about loosing a measly $100 or $400, it pales in comparison to the large number of small businesses that invest so much more time and money every year.  So, for all the complaints about financial losses, look at your own life and track your daily loses.  Earnings eaten away by taxes, purchases eaten away by taxes, buying homes or cars are eaten away by taxes, losses in values, mortgage fees, interest fees, etc.Look at the bigger picture - how much time have you wasted to today?  How much money have you wasted this month?  etc.   OPEN your minds people.

As far as I know, WFG is not a scam. Some of your posts are not true, like about Marlyn Fularon. I've known her since 1993 when she started at WMA. She is a hard working and decent person. The allegations against her are not true. She did not disappear with the commission. She has remained a resident of the Bay Area as a real estate agent where she's had her image, name, and phone number advertised. The information provided below is a biased opinion from someone who is not aware of all the facts. I recommend that you check with the Department of Real Estate and Insurance which proves Marlyn Fularon's license is still in tact.

At this time, the products sold themselves, and the multi-level aspect was a way of giving a small reward to those who had worked hard to build the organization. But the focus was always on the product.Today, and especially with the growth of the internet, it is possible for consumer to get about whatever they want at competitive prices. There is simply no real need for distribution "systems" as there once was, and indeed the focus of all the programs is not on the products they sell -- which are usually either bogus or are available somewhere else to the public at the same or lesser prices. Instead, the focus now is solely on recruiting new people…………with the idea that those people will recruit additional people who will also buy into the program……….Thus, today just about ALL of the multi-level marketing programs are scams. In today's internet economy, there is simply no need for multi-level marketing or the overpriced products that they sell -- meaning that the only thing they are selling are memberships in anticipation that future memberships will be sold in the future, which is the classic definition of a pyramid scheme, and thus securities fraud…………..The Drop Out RateThe "Drop Out Rate" of MLM programs is enormous -- 98% will drop out immediately, meaning that only 2% will continue with the program over any long period of time. The Promoters will tell this 2% that they are the "successful" ones -- what this means is that they have become "successful" scamming other people (who will probably spend their money and then drop out, possibly a big personal loss to them but a profit to the Promoters).The Promoters know the Drop Out Rate, and know that by far most people will buy in, but then never sell anything and quit, which is one of the reasons why MLM programs are criminal schemes.The Promoters also tell those who stay in that they are the "well-motivated and lucky ones". This is 100% false. The people who never sold anything and dropped out are the lucky ones, since they will not be liable for securities fraud or any of the related criminal penalties that goes with promoting somebody else into the program. It is the people who stay in the program who are risking some prison time and a felony conviction for selling an unregistered security.On the "American Income Life Is A Scam" thread, we've also been discussing how similar MLM companies are to cults. I'd be interested to know your opinion once you've read it, seeing as you've had firsthand experience with an MLM. Do you think the same points about cults apply to this company?

What's it like having such a lousy excuse for a "job" that you have to go on sites like this and insist "it's not a SCAM"? Fact is, almost nobody has a job like yours, because it would make most of us physically sick to have to defend this kind of thing. You know, we don't see representatives of legitimate companies having to come on here and claim they're not a scam. Pretty much only the scammers seem to have to do that.You must be a really strong person to be able to perform a job that would make most people sick, to be able to shut your conscience almost completely down to make a "living".

This is not a scam. World Financial Group is a financial services company headquartered in GA. We help families and business understand how money can be used to secure their retirement and for business to reduce their taxes. Unfortunately, this business isn't for everyone. This is for people who want to be in charge of their lives and not be dependent on a job where someone can lay them off at anytime. I attend job fairs so that I can approach those looking for a career. It's strange how people be so negative on something they know nothing about and instead of finding out the facts they spread untruths.

We like to offer you a chance for an interview If you could call me back at 203-768-2229." I then checked the receipt of the message and a different number came up (714-924-3756).The following day I returned her call she claimed to be working for a Marketing company called World Financial group and hiring for middle management positions. Again, her name is Mary Cacosa and she wanted me to return her call at 203-768-2229 originally she called from 714-924-3756. The address she gave me is 3350 E. Birch Street Suite 200 Brea, Ca 92821. The time that we set the interview time for next week--Monday the 17th at 1 p.m. I kept trying to ask more questions but the lady said to write any questions that I have and we'll go over them with you. She also wanted me to bring three references with me and to dress in appropriate business attire.Thank you to all of you, for posting your past experiences with this cruel scheme targeting eager job seekers. For those of you who have not viewed the other postings both male and female cons have used different names and phone number's--this company is only interested in collecting $100 to supposably run a background check on you.  TP.S. The job fair I attended is legit companies who are actually renting booths and interviewing candidates seeking management positions for reputable companies. The lady I met was not at a booth located inside the hotel--she was outside the building wearing a business suit and walked up to me as I was about to enter the hotel. When I had asked her for a business card she reply that she had already handed all of them out.
