To whom it may concern, I've been trying endlessly to get hold of someone from Agora Financial to stop the subscription I took two years ago and you keep on renewing my subscription. This was a total waste of money and I wish i never made the mistake of subscribing. Can someone please call me back to inform me what i need to do from my end to stop the subscription. Please tell me what i need to do to get off your mailing list and off your account. You guys are costing me a fortune and it is completely useless. Please STOP renewing my subscription and give back the money i've paid!! Regards, Michael Botha +971 50 8** **97

I am supposing that you paid for this through a credit card. You need to report your credit card is stolen so that the credit card company cancels that card. This way nobody will be able to charge against that card number in the future.

What the book explains is how to get people to send you $4.95 for something you don't intend to provide. Too little to be sued or arrested, but enough to make one a millionaire if they can get 200,000 fools to fall for it.

One person in 1,500 in the U.S. ; that's all ....

Misleading Advertising / Possibly a Scam

I'm not exactly sure, but I signed up to get a free book, "The Big Book of Income". I paid the shipping charge, giving my credit card information. A few weeks later, $104.00 charge showed up in my checking account for a subscription, I thought was free. I was careful to read the fine print, but I saw nothing that stated I would automatically be billed for a subscription. If I did see that I would never have signed up. I have very little income. I was looking for income help. That charge threw my checking into overdraft, which added another $30 on top of that as a penalty. There was no warning. Because I am on a tight budget I have to be careful about any charges every week or I run out of money and my finances would be disrupted. The overdraft meant bills didn't get paid, so I have more penalties on top of that. What recourse do I have? I called the company, and customer service cancelled my subscription and said my money would be credited back to my account 3-5 business days. I received an email stating that "I might receive a credit", but nothing says for sure. I am totally broke right now with no other help. Sad Need Help. Kimberly Boldt

I want everyone here to know that I finally received a refund of the $104.00. So I am happy about that.

I also did receive the newsletter which is just basic financial information one could find on their own just doing a search. So, I'm not really impressed with that either. The book is also basic information you can find anywhere by doing a search. I was also able to get my overdraft penalties removed from my credit union.

So as far as I am concerned, this is settled with me. But as a warning to others here, do not fall for the Lifetime Income program from Agora Financial.

I too, have been taken. I lost $500 to this guy promising a cheap rate on gold.

I’ve done everything I know to do to get my money back.

Not one word back from him or his company. Expensive lesson.

Be CAREFUL...

There is a reason that some companies like this are still in business and doing VERY well, but I will certainly not mention here what this may involve! I will just say that if anyone has been ripped off and you are actually hoping to possibly regain some of your losses, then you may want to consider emailing them FIRST, and let them know your intentions, whatever they may be. And if you have already left a review on this or any other sire, then agree to remove them all once you have been reimbursed for the losses, or most of them. THAT option may be the only one you have without incurring huge legal fees that may leave you with losses regardless. Also, as to what i mentioned earlier, this may in fact be one of THOSE companies that is not to be trifled with, and yes THEY are still around...i'm just saying for YOUR benefit! Good luck-

I just received and offer for a subscription for 1 year fro the 42 day retirement. that's real funny when it has only been a month since I subscribed to a lifetime subscription. I am getting real tired of what appears to be scams including Altucher who has ripped my account off for $250. Either this is straightened out KNOW or I will be all to glad to report your whole company for Internet fraud. I am real tired of getting all of your B.S. adds and little more. I really thought that Alan Knuckman was OK and enjoyed his reports which is why I decided to take my hard earned and limited money to except the previous lifetime offer. I am a 70+ year old disabled widower and can't afford to have my money ripped off directly or by denying my commitment. Sincerely and disappointed John A. Dennison Sad

In case anyone is wondering, the original review has been removed per my request, mainly because I promised Agora via email that I would if they settled for the meager $105 fraud charge. Not certain about that as of yet but my bank was able to credit my account for such a small amount,and that's good enough for me.

I was actually one of the few lucky ones having such a small loss, but still not sure whether Agora will go along with it? Either way my true ANGER came more from what they were doing to others and not so much my own issues.

And thought it was uncalled for and counterproductive as far as helping mine or anyone else's situation. And also I don't believe anyone here is a "bot", and regardless of whether you had a "personal" experience with them, still have the right to speak out against what AGORA is still continuing to do to so many, politics aside of course.

This "person" (or Russian bot) is simply using this website as an opportunity to spew hate and nastiness. I don't believe they actually have had any real experience with the company .

In fact, I don't believe this came from a real person. I came to this site for real info but I believe this particular "person" is violating your T of S.

ATTN: Mr TRUMP and whoever else is reading these reviews?!?!? {{Redacted}} SCAM...to say the least! But that's ok, i have nothing left to lose but THEY have very MUCH to lose....God have mercy, because I will NOT!!! So I will proceed to take the Amtrak to DC and see what damage i can do with a simple poster board in FRONT of 808 St. Paul ST in Balitimore,MD!!! And if i am too busy for that now then i am sure out of all others reading this review , there will be some willing to do the same!!! God have mercy, because WE will not!!!

On the same level as Bilderburgers?!?!

Well I never thought that they would scam me like everyone else, bit back in early July I paid shipping for a "free" book by Rickards. And now I just noticed a charge of over $100 for something by Agora on my Credit statement. So I can now without any doubt advise ANYONE who has ever made any transaction with these people to go ahead and immediately CANCEL your credit card that was used, and don't even worry about disputing any fraudulent charges, since i am sure most major banks and creditors are well aware of Agora by now and what they are doing. So basically just REFUSE to pay off any of these charges, period. And say to *** with your credit score and to *** with any credit companies that insist on you paying bogus charges...and of course to *** with AGORA but that goes without saying and is where they are ALL heading anyway...unless they repent and mean it!!! Either way, by charging me over $100,they unknowingly just gave me the RIGHT to do something they WILL regret, and i haven't even started yet!! Vios Con Dios Agora!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well i don't know if i would call them "clever" but they are most certainly DEVIOUS and probably a lot worse than that! Also was going to send you a private message about my own review since pissedconsumer.com will not help me with this matter.

I am wondering how I can edit/remove part of my last original review, because it is only giving me the option of ADDING more content?!? And I also found out about "pissedconsumer's" own options for extra "services" one of which was a $250 payment plan?? Well now even THEY are starting to look a bit shady as well! I hope i do not have to actually PAY to have one of my reviews removed since I really only need one and typed out the last one mostly out of anger and frustration for not being able to resolve the fraud credit charge.

Well i guess we will see if "pissedconsumer" responds to my inquiry??? I just have never heard of any review website that did not give the option to delete or remove your own review!?

Total Scam

Bought a "Lifetime Membership" to Agora's Marijuana service almost 2 years ago for $2000.00. The same newsletter I noticed they are touting heavily again. Tried to cancel within 30 days and they said it was non- refundable..... Called and complained many times to no avail. Despite numerous attempts, I got absolutely nowhere. Did not pay much attention as I really did not care for the newsletter......and after a year, I noticed they have removed me from getting the emails. So much for a "lifetime membership !" In my opinion, the newsletter is all talk about spectacular results....but I saw absolutely nothing of value in the newsletter. Worst investment mistake I ever made was pay $2000 to Agora Financial. There are far better Investment Newsletters out there.....find one that is legit, not a scam. My advice......stay far, far away.
