Agora Financial - It's nearly impossible to get rid of this. The phone # on the credit card bill is just a message to tell you to call another number

This is the WORST financial news thing I've ever seen! I already have a lot of experience in the market but there's always a company with some scary headlines that tells you they know more than you do. I don't want or need what you are selling and I'd like a refund of what I've been charged. You do promise that in your presentation. I don't want to buy gold or anything else from you or other companies you might be promoting. I want my money back. I want my money back. {{Redacted}} Isn't this at least 100 words. I'll call the credit card company tomorrow and show them that there's no way to get a human being here to talk to.

Agora and Rickards steal money from you.I subscribed for a $2000 investment service. It was exclusive offering so you could not cancel and ask for a refund. I got no value from the service but as I could not get a refund did nothing. After one year on 28th Sept Agora...

Agora Financial - I spent money for something I feel I didn't get.

I signed up expecting I would receive some insight into how to invest & tips as to what stocks to buy. Instead, I keep being bombarded with all kinds of emails from various people & newsletters wanting me to to sign up & pay additional monies for their book or leaflet on investing. Every time I receive one of these emails, they want me to sign up for something more & pay more money if I want to know more. I am not happy with Agora & feel I have been taken. I am completely overwhelmed & can't begin to read all of these emails (close to 50 a day). I have cancelled & asked for my money back. Unfortunately there is no way to reach them, they say my subscription is running out & they will automatically renew on my credit card, when it has only been a couple of months since I signed up & it was supposed to be for a year.

I really appreciate your honest and eye opening review, and the platform Google reviews as a go to point that allows anyone to do their due diligence. I also would warn anyone are thinking of using options platform such as (Optionsmagnat, Binarybooks, Bloombex,) to not even waste your time since they are all scammers out to steal your hard earned money. Oh and sorry to hear of your losses.

I considered this deal until I read the reviews from those who already trusted this guy. Not taking a chance on someone who is not easily reachable.

True for me too. You buy one thing and it generates much email with offers for even more stuff.....never really get straight talk in the subscriptions.

No real reccommendations. just more promises to give names etc with a barage of more mail and the obnoxious webinars with them tooting their own horns for 90% of the time with past results.. I am here for future results! Yeah if I invest 200,000 I can maybe make 20,000 in a month...but thy dont give you the base amount needed to start...

just lots of hot air fear tactics and belittling comments about how you already missed out on the best, but¨then ¨oh wait.....there is one last play if you sign up fior blah blah. I never seem to get the actual companys name if there is one!¨If there is a real investment there it takes forever and more to plow through all their offers, *** and my mailbos- Not possible to recieve 4 short and imminent web reports daily - If you did try to really listen to them you wil be wasting your life away being forever hounded to sign up here an there . UGH!I am glad to see others who feel the same about them. I think Jim Rickards is the biggest buffoon of all.

GOLD this Gold that. Gold has done very little in the past few years.

Doomsday is tomorrow! Prepare now.Bull.

Agora Financial - Misleading information to purchase a product

Details
Agora Financial offered the Offered the James Altcucher – 1000% Back door which stated if you purchased the service, they gave a 100% guarantee you would receive 1000% gains by the end of 2017 with the stock to invest in they provided. They did not state in anyway if you purchased a "Life Time" membership to the James Altcucher – 1000% Back door, there was no guarantee. They just stated there was no refund. I would have never purchased this if they had stated a lifetime membership does not include any guarantee. This is false advertising. The webinar stated several times there was a 100% guarantee . But never in the webinar, or in writing did they explain a lifetime membership did not include the 100% guarantee.

Contacted by email. Problem fixed they said. Yes we were having some technical probems. No problem not fixed. Then phoned them. Customer service manager? so she said? logged on to my account on her phone and said it was working ok. Proves nothing. Then suggested following. Quote: Must be your phone, take it to phone repairer. Next, change your phone. Next, log on via a PC. Lastly, after I lost it, "I will pass on your concerns" ??? Concerns, really !!! Still can't access the service I have paid for. Really pissed.

same thing happened to me. I don't remember signing up for anything, but charged $99.00 for something.

Finally got someone on the phone. He said he felt bad about it, but could not give me a refund.

He promised this would not happen again, but I doubt that. I think this is a complete repoff.

They make big promises, but cannot deliver. Constantly pummeling you with more and more unsolicited offers. They must have thousands of newsletters & create new "hope" with outlandish claims daily. They constantly tout new products, new claims, new reports, lifetime memberships, etc. This is a marketing firm not an investment newsletter firm, in my opinion. If they could live up to their script writers claims it would be great-THEY CANNOT!!! I bet they sell thousands of subscriptions for as much as they can get, They bait & switch constantly, making bigger & more outlandish claims as they go. the bottom line? Money, money, money-your money. good luck if you believe this BS. This is ongoing, not a one time thing. Very hard to cancel as well. Half the time it just says this is not a monitored email, so it does no good to respond to it. Their pod casts are generally just rmaabling BS that eats up time so you think your getting something, but it is not worth the time to listen to it.
