Just wanted to share in case anyone else is called...
Got a call yesterday morning from a gentleman that said he was responsible for putting together an employee benefits package for a very large well known company that is headquartered in my area. He said that they were looking for a few good FAs to put into the program, so that if someone from that company retired, they would be referred to me.
My BS detector went off the charts, so I asked who he worked for - initially assuming he worked for the big company in question - and he said Perkscard. At that point, I expected a pitch, but didn't get one. So I thought, hmmm... maybe it's legit?
A quick Google search told me all I needed to know. Steer clear of these clowns as apparently they're on the make for FAs now.
corporate perks? a lot of well known companies use them. its just a database of coupons and links to some major online retailers… not too bad actually but not worth it.
