Originally subscribed to WWA for $2,000 with guarantee of 20 doubles in first year or second year free and 30 day trial provision . After some delays I received confirmation with notice that I had been awarded the second year implicitly as a bonus.

I didn’t notice that with that bonus the 30 day trial had been omitted. Three weeks later I inquired whether the trial period could be extended another month to give us both a chance to generate satisfaction. I was then told there was no trial period at all. They said unless I could show them where a trial was specified they would not honor that claim.

I went back and tried to find references to that original offer but Agora had effectively scrubbed the online history to only contain later versions of the 50 minute video presentation that does not mention any trial. Email and phone discourse has been equally defiant. They also added $160 to my $2,000 charge for sales tax! Has anyone ever paid sales tax on a subscription?

I haven’t tried to verify that they even paid that to some government. After that dishonest treatment, I have actively followed all Alan Knuckman’s weekly recommendations with a modest $500 investment. He advises to sell early half of an investment when there is a modest gain, so any doubles that occur will only be on 1/2 the initial investment. In 3 months there have only been 2 that barely occurred, doing am currently suffering a $4,xxx loss in addition to the original fee.

I feel like a fool for believing the exaggerated and seemingly fraudulent claims of the promotion. In addition, Alan often claims his entry price is lower than what I (and probably all other subscribers) can achieve so his performance is more noteworthy. I have written him about these distortions but Agora always says SEC regulations prevent them from answering specific questions about my issues. And recently the feedback address of AskAlan@***.com has been disconnected so they are not allowing any feedback.

Trying to contact Agora about the WWA service yields fruitless results. I finally asked the Agora customer service who I could write to with these concerns and after some delay was given a name but in writing to that person I never get any reply. After several years of dealing with financial advisory services, Agora seems to have the most promising and convincing promotions, but the worst performing services. Now they are taking this approach of offering no trials and guaranteeing results by extending a damaging and fraudulent period of the same service.

A worthless, no cost to them provision to make things even worse. They have just completed a new merchandizing scheme called 42 Day Retirement Window where they guarantee (sic) you can turn a modest $1,000 investment $420,020 in 42 days for the $2,000 fee. Same guarantee and up front about the no refund based on the incredible claim that this is such a good deal that they can’t afford to offer the trial period. I say incredible because if it is so good they could easily offer that deal because no one would exercise that provision.

I am glad to find someplace to vent these concerns on public to see if these aren’t common concerns and get ideas on how to overcome such greedy presumptuous business practices. How can this feedback venue be made more visible.

After reading your report I don't think that I want to invest my money into there money hole! They make enough off of ripping people off on their membership, when one try's to cancel.

They continue to bill you 99.00 a month regardless what you say!!! Thanks

Thank you for sharing. I had Alan Knuckman's WWA service for 3 months this past fall and it was horrible.

Three small winning option trades, and 9 losing trades. Six of those were 100% loss of capital.

I was lucky to cancel the service after 3 months. To anyone else looking at his services...the hype in his sales pitch does not match the results in the trading recommendations.

I Have been with weekly Walt alerts for six months and of course some of the trades are losers but in the long run the options trades that make money are well above the losers

Definitely not my experience in 7 months since July 13, 2017. I have 45 trades done (sometimes more than once per recommendation), for 21 small winners (1/2 of one just touched a double), and 24 much larger losers.

My total loss is up to $4129.30 so far.

I’m obviously going to include this experience in a book on financial advisory services. I was told their was no refund possibility.

I'm having the same problem with "Tim Sykes Weekend Profit". The first two plays never reached my email..the third play was a buy on Friday...Sell immediately..as it wasn't a good play...and nothing this weekend..my $850.00 expires this weekend, and the statement, "you'll make your money back with one play"...is ridiculous.

I wrote a long email at this point...with no response...surprise!!! This is just one more scam from this company... When I called this morning to tell the what was happening, I was connected to a specialist...(Jessie...who was nasty, rude, and very well trained in getting rid of an unsatisfied customer).

At this point I am going to call my credit company and ask them what to do about the $850.00 that they just TOOK from me without any responsibility that I was able to make any plays. STAY AWAY FROM AGORA...ALL OF THEIR PROMISES CAN BE CALLED "SCAM".

Thanks for the heads up. I too received copious amounts of email from Alan Knuckman and this company stating that they were only offering this opportunity to a few hundred people yet they hounded me for months to purchase the system.

They made it too good to be true and no company offers something wonderful only to a select few if it's a good product it would sell better than "hot cakes" and they would gladly make the sales. Best wishes to you!

Agora sent me an email about getting free money from Wall Street. This is nothing more than selling Put Options can be dangerous if your Put is exercised. Personally I think it is extremely risky

Thank you for turning us on to the Finviz.com website. There is alot of information there.

But I was unable to find the free 3 option indicators you speak of. Your help in finding that would be much appreciated.

Do you believe these are the same green dot indicators that Knuckman is promoting in his The 42-Day Retirement Plan?

Mary. I’m so w you.

How do we get started? I’m in Nevada.

I’ll give 10%-*** 50% back to charity. They just need to be penalized for this.

I did and could not get any refund either. I do not recommend any of their advisory publications.

I cannot find their written guarantee but it was specifically implied.

I have been with these people for a number of years and the past 2 or so have just been a headache.

I bailed on all of their services.
