They refuse to refund my $500

Late one evening a few nights ago, I happened upon one of their emails and it seemed intriguing. I have NO experience at all with the stock market, but I thought I could handle it. By the next day, I realized I had made a big mistake. I never used any of their products, but their 'customer service' people claim they cannot refund the $500 I paid. I am devastated! I am 66 years old, I'm ill and I live on a small Social Security income. How can I get them to do the right thing??!! So far, all I get is a recommendation to look into MORE of their scams. I am SO frustrated! I will be having surgery soon and I need that $500 for my health care costs. Should I contact the Better Business Bureau?

Yes. I am filing with the BBB and writing to the Attorney General's office in Baltimore or wherever they are located about their pump and dump practice. They have not returned my email and they never will.

Yes, very sorry about what happened and praying you get a full refund! Also your's is one of the reviews i tweeted and i am pretty sure there are some people in high positions that read my tweets, so all of this will eventually be fully exposed! Take care- DavidB

I am so sorry for your loss. My friend just invested the $79.00 and he's having problems.

I was ready too invest on one of their recommended stocks, HALO FI a low earth orbit satellite system supposedly to deliver cable television at an ultra low cost etc. etc..Long story short I'm glad that people like you are putting these complaints out to help others, thank you.

They did the same thing to me and I ended up being in debt $3000.They have such Intriguing copy makes you want to believe they can make you rich. How they present it you don’t realize you’re clicking through to purchase something until it’s too late.

If you believe you have been defrauded, contact the attorney general in your state or the fraud division of your district's US Attorney's Office.

I wished I had looked at the reviews of Agora before I invested $2000.00. This company will promise you huge sums of money but deliver little or nothing. I have invested in 4 companies, 3 of them have made me a total of $300.00 and the 4th is losing $50.00. This is a...

Sorry about the many issues you are having with these crooks, and was wondering about the Squawk Box, and if that is similar tool to the one that has a green or red light flashing beside the stock that is about to move? I think they called it a black box or something?

Stay away from Agora Financial! I paid Alan Knuckman $2000 to recommend options. After many weeks of losses, I gave up. I’m retired, and a $3000 loss is substantial. Agora Financial is nothing but a hyped up sales organization. I would gladly participate in a class...

I want to know the same thing. Is this Project Prophesy a scam or legit?

I've read one consumer who bought and was pissed as there were more losses than gains. I have yet to read anyone posting anything positive outside of his presentation and now I'm leery.

SCAM ARTISTS

Their misleading ads pull you in, then you lose money following their trades; too bad, you will never get any refund even if one is supposedly available.

There had been no reaction whatsover, in spite of my numerous email messages requesting USD 3,000 refund. They are so careless, that they keep sending me new offers regardless of my "running subcription". They need to be shut down, definitely.

Did NOT Deliver as Stated

Obscure and Misleading To sign up, you do not have an honest Order input system You say you get all the reports, but you don't say select them or you don't get them. Say they are included, but when you go to access them they are not there. THAT IS DISHONEST. Don't mislead people with your web page sing up system. The items were not free to access. why why I thought $ 7 9 . 0 0 was a pack age , righ t, where are the other programs (Reports) that should be available ? You are just playing games with us to try to keep the $79. dollars. 100 words is just a game of B>S> to try the patients of honest people.

Income on Demand

I'm neither pleased or displeased with Zach's Income on Demand. I resubscribed to his letter and I think I now have 2 years worth. I was told that I should have around $20,000 in my account to get started, However, I had to up that to another $20,000 to cover the puts that I had to buy. At this time my account is up on my trades but what was supposed to be just an option account has turned into a basket of stocks that i now own, waiting for them to increase their share price so i can either sell a meaningful call on them or just sell them. Zach is often late to the table on his option recommendations or doesn't put thought into expiration dates/seasons. I've learned a lot from this process, however, I can do it myself from here on. With this volatile market it's not going to be so easy going forward so I'm not investing with reckless abandon as i once might have been inclined to do.

Personally, even if they treated me like a King, I would still give a VERY negative review on behalf of everyone else, period!

#1495605

These are my sentiment exactly as I could have written the above review.I have often not sold a put option Zach recommended and lost out on a lot of cash, but on the other hand, not buying some of his recommendations, has delivered me from being assigned some big losers.
