This is not a Social Security program. It is a come-on from somebody with something to sell that apparently involves getting his hands on people's Social Security benefits. He's just making it look like something officially associated with Social Security. It is not.


Every single one of those ads that involves a long audio or video explanation with real information only if you agree to buy whatever they are selling is a scam. The only people making money from those are the con artists behind them.

Pretty much what I thought.

If it really was that easy to get all the extra funds, I'm certain they would have helped more than 3,000 families. I feel for those who got suckered.

Any time someone thinks for you, it will be expensive. Some people don't do their own proper research and it costs them, the last time I looked, the Social Security site was free and no need to purchase anything to receive the benefits we paid for.

If you are not informed, you cannot make a wise decision.

Just look at the web address: agora financial .com.

If you want info on Social Security, go to SSA.gov
If you want info on Medicare, go to Medicare.gov

Always look for the .gov to know it is the official site.

Lots of scams out there just be critical of any “deal”.

The latest one making the rounds is a communication saying due to some activity your SS number has been frozen/deactivated. Totally bogus but these dirt bags keep trying.
