Customer number 84-634852-70 I was given a free subscription but it is nothing very detailed to complete my dIploma course level 4 in health and social care. I then received an invoice for £79.80 for units, which I had not even received yet up until September. This was crazy as I had not received any units. I spoke with Anne/ Ann today on the phone...

Agora Business Publications - Business solutions

Being harrassed by this company for something I did not sign up to.
Did not open any 'free stuff' they sent me. No verbal or signed contract.
Now being harrassed by debt collection company.
All I did was click on their website!
No notice of 14 day free trial etc.
Extremely poor practise, to be avoided at all costs.
Thanks
Rose Shirvani

Desired outcome: To stop receiving threatening letters from them.

Agora Business Publications - Free Trial

I have tried to cancel a free trial of quality care matters.
The emails keep bouncing back. Have rang numerous times to a message saying no one can take calls due to Covid.
My concern is I will be billed for a product I do not want.
They are impossible to contact.
I have 2 emails which will not go through.
The email on the message says to contact [email protected]
I have also looked on the website and tried [email protected]
but still not contactable. This is now URGENT.
Aliso Date
Manager

Desired outcome: written confirmation that it is cancelled.

Agora Business Publications - Complaint about invoice

Same as the others.. took a look At their services and without signing anything get an invoice. They not even interested that the company I had opened and wanted to commence operating hadn't even started. There is no way I would given my bank account to them so they just send invoices. It seems this is how they do business. Shocking covid19 stopped my company from even starting. I am only one person so their services are of no use to me in any case and I was merely reading their website.

Desired outcome: I just want them to leave me alone and cancel the invoice. I have no interest in their services.

Agora Business Publications - rickard's gold speculator

In October 2017, less than 2 years ago, I paid Agora $3, 000 for a lifetime subscription to Rickard's Gold Speculator, a weekly publication related to investing in small gold miners. I was pleased with it.

Recently, this newsletter was discontinued and Agora Financial unilaterally substituted another publication, Jim Rickard's Project Prophecy, often which appear to be pitches for yet other products sold by Agora and usually has little to do with gold or miners when an occasional recommendation is made.

Then, just "coincidentally", Agora's subsidiary Stansberry Research recently initiated what appears to be a quite identical gold mining stock service, Gold Stock Analyst with John Doody.

On August 27, 2019, I spoke to "John", a senior account specialist at Agora about this. I inquired into whether there was a substitute publication available specifically for gold mining stocks but he indicated there wasn't. When I inquired about getting switched into the Gold Stock Analyst service, he indicated that wasn't possible. When I inquired about a full or even partial refund of the $3, 000, John said it wasn't refundable.

So, in less than 2 years, Agora discontinues a "lifetime" gold mining publication, has no substitute, won't provide a full or partial refund of a lifetime subscription to it, then initiates an almost identical gold stock advisory service service through it's sister publication Stansberry.

Highly unethical, if not illegal, in my opinion.

Client Number 84-577794-32 This company made an offer via the internet for a free trial of a Health & Safety publication. I consented to the free trial. When the first issue arrived it was little more than 4 pages of A4 and worth nothing. I decided not to continue and emailed them that I didn't want a subscription when they sent me a bill. Many month...

Received a call from a very pushy sales guy about a free h&s magazine. This is sometime ago and the details are hazy - as you can tell this is not something that I wanted. Only agreed to get him off the phone. Thought nothing of it and didnt even read the magazines. A few weeks later I received an invoice for approx £50. I called agora to discuss this as I...

Got an email from Agora publications back in 2017 offering free h&s advice. After receiving that via email they sent a leaflet through the post-I never asked for that. Few monts later they sent an invoice for £87 for that leaflet claiming I have signed up for that as well. I never agreed that I will buy something from them. I was never made aware properly...

Some time ago I vaguely remember a phone call from yourselves where I must have provided you with my name and address, as with all Sales calls I just want to get back to my work. I received no follow up email, even though you say you sent one, it must have been caught in our strict company spam filters, so nothing was received. You later started sending me...

I signed up for two free trials with this company but quickly realised it wasn't what I thought. I emailed in to cancel the subscription within the 30 day period, but the company only cancelled one subscription and charged me a hefty fee for the second publication, for which I only received a load of junk emails. They then refused to do anything about it when I explained the situation.

Agora Business Publications sent me letter today. They congratulated me with the profitable buying and offered to buy more. I don’t know who they are and what they want from me! It is definitely a scam as two days later they charged me $200 and I never received the product.

I signed up for a free trial of Agora Business Publication because they’ve advertised their offer as risk free. It was mentioned that cancellation period is 30 days so I expected that there is loads of time to avoid charges. Instead of that I got charged straight away and they refused to refund me.
