does this job sound like a scam to you?

I recently got offered a position with Liberty National Life Insurance, they need agents, which is a pretty work at home job, here's the catch, I got to pay $100 to get state licensed, he sounded pretty nonchalant about me doing my own research and calling him back if I was still interested sound like a scam?

Hell yeah it's a scam. Any job that you have to pay to get is a scam. I had one like that were I was to mail off a bunch of letters for this company at home, and all I had to do was send them $125 for the start up fee and materials. They also sent me a computer disk with software to load on my computer that I would... More

Liberty National Life Insurance is a legitimate company and has a satisfactory rating with the BBB, so it's not exactly a scam per se, but honestly I wouldn't take the "job" unless you fancy yourself a hard salesperson who would enjoy pushing insurance policies on people that they probably don't need. You won't get... More

The scam would be it's mostly a work at home deal. h*********u going to get clients from your house? If you have life insurance where and how did you get it? I'll bet the agent came to your house or where you were working at the time. you probably didn't go to their house to sign up... More
