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?

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.
