Afortus is Ancora is FFG LLC.....a company run and owned by Rick Dixon....one of the greatest con-men I have ever had the misfortune to run into. Over 80% of their sales force has left since 2015 and over half of their Manger Force has left as well....because all the promises of employee ownership and a payout at the sale( which was pushed out 7 years and never occurred) has left people with no time left to recover from the lies. People with debilitating conditions and advanced age are kept from having their hard work rewarded in accordance with the promises from Rick Dixon. Any positive comments you read here are from people who have nowhere else to go or are in Rick Dixons pocket. Unfortunately, having been in the company almost since the beginning, I know all the players, and am learning almost daily from managers and agents across the country how badly we all have been taken. Rick, do the right thing....pay what you owe, settle up and end this before it is to late.

Afortus Financial was previously Ancora Financial, formally Federal Financial Group 2, formally Federal Financial group before that. I heard they hired experts to white wash social media, but also change their name for a clean slate to escape negative social media and dupe unsuspecting clients and agents. Research dug up so much misleading info, I decided all should hear "the truth." I've interviewed a dozen of their recruiters, 2 dozen managers, even more agents. Too much info on too many topics require several complaints over time. The first complaint is entitled:
   Mud Wrestling With Pigs- Part 1: The $295 leads scam
   Afortus hires 15-20 recruiters (most not life insuranced licensed) to telemarket and do webinars to attract agent recruits. They charge the recruit $295 and promise them "preset appointment client leads," without telling the whole truth! Most walk away right then. The remaining recruits are assigned a manager who delivers the bad news;
   Your contract level is 40% (industry norms are 70-100%). Additionally you can't get leads until you memorize a ridiculous 20 page script, and give them a list of 50-100 of "your" warm market names. If you don't fullfill "your" part, you can't get leads or your money back. Who wants to work for half the industry norm? Who wants to memorise a ridiculous 20 page script? Afortus promised leads, why did I just pay $295 for Afortus to steal my entire warm market? Of those surveyed, the majority forfeit their $295 and walk away without ever having recieved a single lead.
   Only persistent trusting souls remain. They begin to make warm market sales with their manager on a 50/50 splt. When their 1st paycheck comes, they realize 50% split on their 40% contract leaves them just 20% on "their own" warm market. Meanwhile their manager gets a 25% over ride on your half and 65% on their own half. But the real scam is Afortus owners who got 80% up to their approximate 145% top down contract level. More recruits forfeit their $295 having never recieved a single lead from Afortus!
   If you're tollerant enough to still be there, you've now earned the promised leads, or so you thought. You're then told there aren't enough A leads to go around. Instread you're given B and C leads, which are really just A leads that have been worked and reworked in a never ending recycling bin. When or if you fianlly get a few A leads, you quickly learn they're slightly better than random names in the phone book. That is usually the last straw and they leave, having lost their entire warm market and wasting months and sometimes years "mud wrestling with pigs" in the Afortus $295 client leads scam. 
   Solution- There are things you can do to learn the truth and avoid being swindled. First- ask for your contract level up front. Second- Ask how many leads, how soon, and if there's any other requirement. Third- Tell them you paid $295 to GET leads not GIVE your warm market. Fourth- Tell them you'll only give warm market names at 100% contract without any split. Fifth- Tell them you want all commissions paid directly from the carrier, no manual payments by Afortus. Sixth- ask to see the script to see if theirs a chance in hell you'd memorize let alone give it. And lastly and most important, all the previous must be signed in writing, thats just good business. Simply tell them you want to inspect what you expect. They'll get a kick out of that!
   Summary- Life is never fair and you never get everything you want. But you can get something you can live with. It's easier to figure that out if organizations are ethical and up front. From what I could tell in my research, Afortus is NOT one of those companies. It's what Afortus doesn't say that should concern you. I'm saving that for my next complaint entittled; Mud Wrestling With Pigs- Part 2: Management and Ownership Scam.
Note- I have no problem and encourage all to circulate and speak

This company has been amazing and has done great things. They are not perfect by any means but the programs they have available and how transparent they are with the information about the company is astounding. If you are an agent or looking to become one this company is a perfect boost for that opportunity!

Awsome..!

They are a typical bottomfeeder telemarketing scum company that never stops calling, no matter how many times you ask to be placed on their do not call list. They are a US based company and needs to be reported to the FCC for every do-not-call violation they commit. It is a scam company, stay away!!!

I have worked with this company that provides leads and sales training for many years. They are not perfect, but very close to it statistically. There are glitches once in a while as mentioned in some other comments, but I have had a great experience with them for a long time with very few exceptions and have done very well with the very few clients and agents/advisors that have had a misunderstanding up front. For agents and advisors they have a lead program that requires a reimbursable fee upfront so people have skin in the game so agents/advisors don't just give up. The leads are very expensive for the company to produce and they will make mistakes once in a while as they push to keep costs down, but it is literally less than 1% of 1% of the time and they go above and beyond to correct those mistakes. The company reimburses the fee as soon as agents/advisors meet the simple requirements. They give incentives to work with your own market, but it's not mandatory so several of the negative comments are not the whole story. As for telemarketing calls, most people don't like them, but it is still an effective way to get in front of people that need what is offered. They offer incentives for potential clients just to listen for a few minutes with no obligation to buy anything. 99.99% all of the people I have met with over the years have been pleasantly surprised at what I can actually do for them and their financial future, even if there was nothing I could help them with at the time. If you have been bothered by a telemarketer or have had a poor experience as an agent/advisor, even though I don't represent the company as a whole, I offer my apology and extend an invite to contact me with any questions about my own experience as a client and/or agent/advisor or to be pointed in the right direction to get any issues resolved. We want to do the right thing, all the time and strive to do so.

I've been with the company before it was agent owned and since, and I've enjoyed the entire journey along the way. Almost every review I've read online is about a new hire that is frustrated with a home office recruiter, or a call center that has a "dialer" issue. Both are extremely valid concerns, annoyances, and problems.
For the new hire, if you have some in depth questions, try and see if you can talk to one of the reps that have been using the Afortus system for more than 6-12 months. There are pros and cons of every system. Usually a rep that's been running the program within their practice for a period of time could give you a clear picture of how it would or wouldn't work for you. For the individual that's being called by one of the Afortus' call centers, and the dialer system keeps dialing your number, that is definitely NOT supposed to happen. I know for a fact the company is extremely sorry and bothered that you have had an experience like that. They appreciate your feedback, and will continue to fix their internal tech problems when they do happen. Out of the tens of thousands of calls their call centers make, you should see less than 1% will have this type of a technical problem.

Annoying call from someone who somehow knew my name. She started talking quickly and there was a tremendous amount of noise in the background so I could no hear anything other than my name and "are you working full time or jus part time?" I asked her to please repeat who she was and who she was calling from and told her that since there was a lot of background noise in the area from which she was calling. I politely asked her to repeat what she just said. Her response was silence and then she rudely hung up on me. I only know who called by checking the call name on the phone. If that company has a useful business, they have blown their opportunity with me a client. The employer for the cold call people should know that first impressions can kill any potential for future business.

I have been involved successfully with various companies over the years and in most instances the complaints you see are not accurate. There have been many name changes and company transitions in the past decade. This company is no different. They are not a scam or fraud if you do a complete review besides relying on disgruntled people online. For those of you who think you know the financial services Lead business well, go out and create your own company and see how you do. Afortus is not perfect just like any other biz. The people behind the company are great people with strong work ethic. Take the time to dig further than online comments.
