I don't think the BBB can do anything here.
Actually 100 lbs. of silver would have been $44,736.00.
But I would say that dealer took advantage of your Uncle.
What might that accomplish?
It might stop this sleazeball from ripping off another individual.
Well, JCB, I hope you are not referring that I "Mojavedave" am the dirty scoundrel that ripped your relative off. I might be looking for deals, but not underhanded ones. I do not own a coin shop, but I believe there is one in the town of Rosemond or Mojave and one each in Lancaster and Palmdale, all in California.
This is the kind of account that give Coin Dealers a very bad reputation. And many deserve them.
When dealing with a dealer beware! Just that.... be aware! There are so many of them that succumb to deceit of wealth at the expense of their conscience. They are around the temptation every day all day.
I have many times sat in a coin dealer's shop while someone (many times seemingly desperate) would walk in with a myriad of silver coins or say perhaps several rolls of Walking Lib Halves. I would watch these dealers state and stand on their price. Some of them were fair, but the majority were way out of the scope of an honest offer. I noted it. And filed it away for future reference. They knew that and didn't care.
What is to be said? Except be aware. Beware.
