I would like to know how much capital you used and how long you were in the program. What I saw was a recommendation for $20,000, not $100,000 as you claim.

Agora has some decent authors. However, the reserve is a rip off, because they have a revolving door.

I suggest buying a newsletter that suits your immediate needs, and only doing so on an annual basis.

That way, when the author moves on, you move on. I bought the farm, and wish I never did.

Provide appropriate advice on all open positions in Mayer's Special Situation Portfolio; live up to promise of Financial Reserve as including all current and future Agora Financial Publications (even if they move to another office down the hall).

Agora Financial Is Completely Unethical

I made the colossal mistake of purchasing the Agora Financial Reserve membership for $10K. It supposedly gave me lifetime access to all of their publications. After subscribing, they immediately terminate the more successful publications and re-launch them under a different shell company, which I have to pay AGAIN to receive. They are the worst of the bait-and-switch crowd, by far. Eventually, I'm sure that charges will be filed agains them and they will be shut down. In the meantime, AVOID AGORA FINANCIAL!!!

My father was scammed out of over $5000 in six weeks, by their multiple investment/nutritional/ lifestyle arms. Each company shares the Agora Financial database.

Jim Rickards SOUNDS sincere, intelligent, logical in his analysis.

So much so that when I first experienced the tactics used by Agora Financial, I was troubled that he would allow his name to be associated with that sort of behavior. It seems so far beneath him, badly cheapens his image and undermines his credibility.

As the months have passed and revealed his disregard of any suggestion something is amiss, I'm left with the bitter taste of wondering whether I've just been conned by one more American infomercial *** artist.

What a disappointment.

OK, but there's a Gray Area here-money in reserve;the video didn't talk much about that. Also, there was some bad grammar in a few of their sentences(don't have time to get into that, I'd have to watch the whole#@***video to find them)_As I said, a few of these sentences had bad grammar, but I couldn't help but wonder if they weren't intentional, as they were constructed in a way the reduces their liabilities.Oh well, welcome to the wild,wild West, I mean Internet!

Agora was once a source for interesting p[rovocative ideas. Now they are another part of Porter Stansberr's empire of ***. Stansberry ihas a record of fraud. He ons Agora and the Casey letters. James Altucher is also part of the empire of garbage. Beware all of the Stansberry letters. They will only hurt you This site wants 80 words. I have no more to say. I need 19 more words. Agora had a letter , some guy that came up with 10 baggers. He seems to be gone.

After watching the video on "Income on Demand" my head was about to explode because of all the repetitious content. I was super skeptical and when I finally found out the $2,000 price tag, I backed off.

They sent me an email and tried to entice me with a lower price.

My red flags went off and common sense told me to run away from this one. It all sounded way too good to be true.

Dear consumer, I would like to sincerely apologize for the lack of service your experienced this morning. We did experience a glitch when sending out today's webinar link which caused our phone and email volume to spike.

We were able to correct the problem quickly and sent out a new link by email. Even if you canceled today it should still have reached your inbox. If for any reason you did not receive it please contact me directly and I will be happy to provide you a new link. Please keep in mind we record and provide transcripts to all of our webinars.

This allows our customers to listen or read the information at their convenience. I wish we were able to fix the issue in time to meet your expectations. In regards to the time frame it takes to receive a refund back; most refunds take up to 24 hours to process. We state 5-7 business days for refunds on our order forms to allow us time to process check as well as credit card refunds.

Dear Consumers, review #678988 I would like to sincerely apologize for the lack of service that you have experienced. At Agora Financial we strive to give great customer service.

I’m here to help you understand the information you’ve viewed within our promotions, explain how our business works, and what services my team can provide you. All of our subscriptions have refund policies; this gives our customers a chance try out our subscriptions for a period of time at no risk and receive a refund.

I would also like to address the post about "Canadian Social Security". You can legally piggyback on Canadian social security by investing in the same profitable companies that the Canadian system does. They’ve hired elite financial investors to make decisions on how to grow the pensions of all Canadian citizens.

You too can invest in these same companies who pay dividends, on your own, right here in America. Once you become a Lifetime Income Report subscriber we would be happy to send you the reports that explain these investments.

We can also offer customers a 365 day refund policy (from the subscription start date.)

I would like to work with each customer to resolve any complaints. Please contact us at this phone number 1 (800)708-1020 or email us support@agorafinancial.com.

Thank you!

Andrea Michinski
