Agora Financial, a Baltimore-based LLC, reached an agreement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to settle several complaints targeting vulnerable seniors. The company allegedly operated two schemes promising victims a diabetes Type II cure and free government money.
Agora Financial promised to give seniors access to a diabetes cure and information that would lead them to free government money through its fraudulent marketing pamphlets, how-to guides, and newsletters, according to the press release.
28-Day Type II Diabetes Cure
False marketing practices were utilized to promote the company’s “The Doctors Guide to Reversing Diabetes in 28 Days” and “Congress’ Secret $1.17 Trillion Giveaway.”
The company made false promises to help victims cure their diabetes in just 28 days without dietary changes. It claimed the victims’ Type 2 diabetes was linked to electronic device exposure.
‘The Doctor’s Guide’
“The Doctor’s Guide” claimed a combined treatment of Epsom Blue, Chromanite, and Himalayan Silk would cure the victims’ Type II diabetes.
Agora also utilized its “Congress’ Secret $1.17 Trillion Giveaway” publication to defraud consumers. The guide promoted two phony affiliate programs – Congressional Checks and Republic Checks.
Instead of fulfilling its free government money claims, the publication encouraged seniors to invest in stocks that paid dividends. If the seniors fell for the false claims, they would have risked thousands of their own money just to obtain what was Agora promised.
Agora Financial is a subsidiary of Monument & Cathedral, which is comprised of over 80 companies that market over 400 programs, services, and products.
