If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck.......

Hint. If any system made money easily the inventor would NEVER advertise.

If you know what everyone else knows you know nothing.

Hint #2. There is no easy money to be made trading.

Agora Weekly Wealth Alert is to be avoided, in my opinion it loses money and the Company has given me cause to not trust them.

Three weeks ago, after deciding this was a total bust and I was no longer trading his recommendations, I send an email requesting the auto renewal be removed. I've sent four more emails asking for them to respond to me and to remove the auto renewal. Fortunately I have many months remaining until renewal. However it seems quite apparent they are ignoring my request. Soon, after a few more emails to them, I will send the thread I am developing of all my requests to the SEC and ask if they can perhaps get a response. Additionally, because I am well documenting all of this, should they actually take the money come renewal time I can easily prove to the bank I made every effort to avoid this and feel confident they will quickly make a refund to me and they Agora can deal with a huge bank instead of just little me. Stay away from Agora for any of their products. They really do seem to be a very dishonest group of people.

When you run a sacam like this you need 1. a person with am exaggerated payment for the servicrs proviede.

The first answer> Doctors they will charge you $10,000 for a one hour operation. So Agors just inflates the buy in and keeps a lot of the money. Drs and pro-athletes are trhe best targets for these kinds of scams. They already have an inflated idea of what an bhours worth of works is valued ($10,000) so they are easier to hok because they know the short cut.

But its a short cut off the bridge & into the water and YOU drown SCam rule1 have you ever met ANYONE who did this with a profit. The answer is no but rs & pro-athltes are smarter than a guy like ,me ( an MBA from Carnegie Mtop20 MBA in tbhe country. I can see this 100 miles away. The gambling mentality appears.

so if you ared smarter & luckier than the guys runing this scam you will end up broke! AND will NOT tell a soul because its so embarrassing That is thhe perfect storm

Dont' let them fool you!

This company is a scammer, I signed up for a free trial before the 14 days were up I cancelled the trial and was promised no funds would be taken from my account $44 was then taken from my account. I contacted them for a refund and was told they hadn't taken any money and my subscription was cancelled. 1 month later another it was taken. I have emailed them on multiple occasions and have had no real result with the conversation, they say it's a rolling subscription, even though I cancelled the initial trial! I am now in the process of contacting Trading Standards and the Financial Ombudsmen, which is sad because they also have a sixty-day money back guarantee. I was well within this time period, I have now had to change my bank card to stop them taking any more money. They do not get back to you within the said time and the staff are all unhelpful. Bewerk

Caution: Weekly Wealth Alert Claims

Outside of fabulous marketing (I'm an "expert" and still got roped in), I can't say anything positive about this service. It has delivered 100% LOSSES since I've joined. NOTE: I'll happily retract this statement if this turns out to be a bump in the road. But claims of thousands of extra income every week is a joke. Please don't fall for this. And especially be wary of signing any lifetime subscription offer. If anything they say IS true in their advertising, then they do have to actually recover a supposed $million+ investment in this "system." However, if you subscribe, you'll be funding that, and not your own pockets. Look past the dozen or so (lucky?) examples they talk about. What about the likely thousands of false positives on this supposed proprietary indicator? Here's REAL TIME REAL RESULTS for my first two week: Apple Call: Invested $522.29. Net GAIN: $22.45 XLF Call: Invested $362.96. Net LOSS: $10.90 MU Call: Invested $559.63. Net LOSS: $483.27

Agora is a SCAM!! Years ago I followed their recommendations on Penny Stocks and lost a tremendous amount of money. I can't imagine why the whole company is not shut down, and the principals of the company not in Jail!!

#1374731

He's right on. Angora and Weekly Wealth Alert is a total scam. STAY AWAY!!

#1374728

I agree. I signed up for the Alerts, traded and suffered loss after loss. They had one small gain in there and made sure we all heard about it, however it was nothing compared to the losses.

#1365936

A word to the wise. Read agora's offers.

Then go online and read the reviews.

You'll most likely want to hold on to your money. If you give them anything cancel your card to prevent further catastrophe.

Empty promises

Agora Financial is clearly long on the promises and talk and empty on producing any investment information of any substance whatsoever! Like so many others they are in the business of selling newsletters, not providing meaningful insights or tips on the markets. I could have written better stuff than I read. Like empty suits.....these guys are EMPTY PROMISES!!!! Stay away. Certainly cannibis is is an area for investment, but in a developing markets especially the key is eliminating the so called wheat from the chaf! Agora does no such thing. They hook you with very broad based information and slowly reel you toward a $2000-$3000 report which I understand is of very little material use for making big return investments.

Avoiding all Agora Scams

They are not to be trusted as are all of the Investor publishing houses. Their agenda is to sell subscriptions and they could care less if you make money. PERIOD. Nothing else need be said. They tried to stall a refund under one of their guarantees and I sent them a demand with copies of all relevant correspondence and the threat of a lawsuit and it worked. Refund received. But here are the keys to dealing with Agora if you must after succumbing to their greed plays. 1) copy and past or take a screen shot of all their promo material with their claims and especially their refund policy and save all to a file on your computer. 2) charge all fees and costs to a credit card, never send a check or money order. 3) when the time comes and they harass or stall your request for a refund, give them an ultimatum and tell them you intend to go to the CC company and cancel the charge. 4) if they still fail, simply call the credit card company and demand the transaction be reversed for FRAUD. 5) the CC company will have you send a statement and supporting documentation (that's why you saved it all) and then they will cancel it all and stick it up Agora's *** where it belongs. Trust me it works and it works with the fraudsters at Map Press and all the other criminal enterprises that care only about selling subscriptions

Income On Demand Portfolio Exercises

I too am a (soon to be ex) subscriber to Income on Demand. I have contacted them multiple times, without response, regarding how their advertizements leave out the very real possibility of losses do to the put exercises. I had the majority of my trades exercised. And while I have generated some income from selling Call options on those shares, the losses incurred in share value decline are still 9 to 10 times MORE than the income generated. I would need to see Calls for the next 5 years just to have a hope to break even, assuming I don't get the calls exercised and lock in the loss. In order to generate any reasonable amount of Income with this service (i.e., $1000/month), you not only have to have a very large account (in excess of $100K), but also need to pray your shares do not get exercised.

I would like to know how much capital you used and how long you were in the program. What I saw was a recommendation for $20,000, not $100,000 as you claim.

#1310038
@PissedConsumer1179649

The recommendation of $20K an amount to "get started". You need roughly $10K per week and access to $130K on the low side and $180 K on the high side.

#1129520

How long have you been a subscriber? What advises the service if a put option is exercised?

Selling calls? Selling the stocks?
