    Best way, pretend you are selling insurance too and bug him back.

    Taste of his own medicine!

    eversince this friend became an agent, his character change into something weird, "super friendly" towards people, and whenever he met someone be it a friend or someone's friend, he will eagerly want to get contact numbers and targeted them to buy policies from him, whenever he spoke to people, his conversation will always have his insurance thing inside. And he will present a look of care and confidence in front of them.

    even to strangers, he will said things like " u know ? i care for your future and your needs.. and i had a solution for you... " wah lau !? my own parents who bring me up never even said such words... and yet he talked until like he is my Papa !?
    Take him for your papa. Ask him to buy insurance for you and ask him to pay your premium.

    I think u are the one with the problem. If you don't entertain him, there's no way he can sell you anything.

    When I talk to agents, I will ask for exactly the products I want. If they try to sell me other products, like investment-linked rubbish, I will tell him I don't need any. If he proceeds to sell me those things, I will tell him that he is wasting his time in no uncertain terms. Then I will tell him that I will call him if I need insurance, and ask him not to call me unless it's for things other than insurance.

    It's not about being rude... but we have to be assertive. If not, we waste each other's time.

    Be assertive. Say, "Listen to me... I don't need this product and that product. Do you understand?" I really say these to agents. Quite simply, I have no time/inclination to entertain them.

    hello ! i had already told him " i don't need this product and i am happy with my current agent " ! please read the postings below.

    the problem is he insisted he wants to take over all my financial needs. I said NO, but he kept saying Can Lah..

    Ya this will work. I alway tell them I have overly invested in insurance liao no $$ now. You can go lunch with him then tell him you are heavily in debt, then try borrow $500 from him then ask him to pay for the lunch. Bet you he will not call you again or even answer your call

    ok, i think i had found enough good advice from fellow clubsnappers. Decided to lock this thread to prevent going out of topic.

    Thanks to all who contribute your views and suggestions.
