Update by user May 02, 2018

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.

Update by user Apr 04, 2018

The annual subscription was USD 3,000. The promise was weekly tips for investing in stock market, with high profits guaranteed.

In reality, after 6 weeks, 3 tips were received, all of them wrong, generating losses. After my request to cancel the subscription and refund, I was offered to change the "specialist" out of many of Agora Financial. As it seemed that there is no other option, I opted for Andrew Keene's Alpha Shark Newsletter. For that I was provided with a new Username and Password.

After only 4 weeks, when trying to Log In, the Username and/or Password were rejected.

I informed Agora, sent a reminder, but until today, after more than 2 months of subscription I got no reply from these crooks. It's really a shame and rip-off.

Original review posted by user Apr 02, 2018

Paid USD 3,000 for an annual subscription for one of their useless Newsletters. In 6 weeks, instead of weekly tips, three were provided, all wrong, producing losses.

After my request for refund, I have been provided with a new Username and Password and offered to pick another pro (?!) and continue. I tried with that. I wrote back selecting another advisor, but also requesting confirmation.

The confirmation had never been received. After approximately another month, my new Usernam and/or Password were rejected as wrong/nonexisting.

So, the whole annual subscription was killed in less than 3 months, with 3 missed tips.

I again complained in written requesting their action or refund, all in vain. There is no response from these guys.

If there is any legal action available, I'll be happy to pursue, provided there is a chance of getting these gangsters where they belong.

Product or Service Mentioned: Agora Financial Tim Sykes Weekly Fortunes Subscription.

Reason of review: Not as described/ advertised.

Monetary Loss: $3500.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

Agora Financial Cons: Obvious intention to rip people off.

Contact the Better Business Bureau they have gotten back many people's money where there was no refund with this company.

Tweeted your review, among many others. Don't worry, these con-men will be exposed one day SOON for what they really are. And that Sykes guy makes a rich Televangelist look like Mother Theresa...wow!!

If you genuinely believe you have been defrauded, there are Federal and state agencies that you should notify. If these agencies don't know, they can't investigate!

Few private law firms will be interested in taking on your case because the damages are relatively small and the investigation into this kind of set-up is expensive.The most direct resource is probably Chief Kathleen Gavin of the Fraud and Corruption Section, c/o United States Attorney's Office for the District of Maryland, 36 S. Charles Street , 4th Fl., Baltimore, MD 21201; tel.: 1-410-209-4800. The United States Attorney's Office in New York, 1 St. Andrew's Plaza, New York City, NY 10007; tel.: (212) 637-2200, is also a good contact.If your complaint involves unlicensed investment advice or purchase of a security, contact Stephanie Avakian, Co-Director and/or Steven Peikin, Co-Director of the Division of Enforcement, c/o Securities Exchange Commission, 100 F Street, NE, Washington, DC 20549; tel.: 1-202-551-4500; see also: https://www.sec.gov/tcOn the state level, notify Attorney General Brian Frosh, c/o Maryland Attorney General’s Offices, 200 St.

Paul Place, Baltimore, MD 21202; Main number: 1- 410-576-6300; email: consumer@oag.state.md.us; http://www.marylandattorneygeneral.gov/Pages/CPD/Complaint.aspx. Another AG aggressively pursuing fraud complaints is, of course, Attorney General Eric T.

Schneiderman, c/o Office of the Attorney General, The Capitol, Albany, NY 12224-0341; tel.: 1-800-771-7755; https://ag.ny.gov/bureau/criminal-enforcement-and-financial-crimes-bureau.There is no shame in having fallen victim to an alleged fraud scheme. Permit the proper agencies to investigate and make their determinations.
