The reason I get worked up is now that person will bad mouth PM and coin dealers as a bunch of crooks, giving our area of the world a bad name. We have ALWAYS been badmouthed by a few bad apples, OTOH we have always, (last 50 years anyway), had bad apples in both PM and Coin dealer world. I wonder if the cash transactions is what attracts the losers to us?
There's always been bad sellers ever since there was something to sell in every area. There's also always been bad buyers or ones that try to save a few cents and get burned just going for the cheapest.
and it is, indeed, a cruel world. I remember when trust was a badge of honor and a word was a bond.
Today, you need to be leery of anyone selling valuables. A few years ago, I read of a person selling a Rolex Watch and having it returned because it did not work. He took it to a jeweler and was told the mechanism had been replaced with a fake.
Even those aren't completely safe. Here is one that was presented to me a couple months ago. He bought them online. I could see they were bad as soon as I looked at them but the everyday consumer wouldn't have a clue. As always buyer beware. Know what you are buying and who you are buying from.
That's true, I actually forgot as I've never come across one, held one or anything else. Buy from a reputable seller and know your shizzle or go without!
Trust, BUT verify.
Why people don't take the time to verify Every PM purchase before the sale or after if not a face to face transaction just makes me want to shake my head.
To each his own....its your money.
They weight 32.1 grams in the plastic sleeve and after I cut one out it weights 30.0 gr.
thats a shame that the buyer got scammed that way? does silvertown have a return policy? a popular store like silvertown should be aware of these coins/bars and hopefully a return policy
No store is going to let you return fakes someone else made just because their name is on it
So, are you saying Silvertown did not know they were fake?
They didn't make them. Someone made fake silvertown bars. Just like the US mint didn't make fake US coins.
