Gold Investment Scam: How It Works

(with video below) Is gold a good investment now? If you're wondering how to invest in gold and silver, watch out for the Gold Investment or Gold Coins For Sale scam.

The price of gold reached recently its highest point in history. Taking advantage of the bad economy and people's interest in investing in gold, crooks came out with lucrative scams to victimize the potential buyers. The peak reached this year. How does the scam work?

Watch the video below to see the Gold Coins For Sale Scam, exposed:

Gold Coins For Sale Scam Video

Creating beautiful fake websites backed up by phony testimonials, scammers advertise everywhere, even on local radio stations, guaranteeing high returns on investments. Victims send the money, there is a promise that the gold exists (gold bullion) and the seller guarantees the gold is saved for the client in some safe location.

Indeed, the gold doesn't exist, while victims live with the belief that their gold is in good hands. Since this is a long time investment, they wait for years for the right time to re-sell it, while in reality the gold is not even there. By the time they realize have been duped, scammers are long gone.

Gold Coins For Sale Scam: How To Avoid

If you want to know how to buy gold coins or bars, do your homework. Get a recommendation from a friend who maybe already dealt with the company you came across. Check to see if the company is regulated by the state you live in.

If the seller uses high-pressure tactics, step away– it is certainly a scam – real gold dealers don't need to press for business. Also, a good idea is to check if their company is a BBB accredited one.

Pierre and related sites in China are trying to sell fine silver and fine gold 1 oz coins for $10 and $20 apiece. $10 for one oz fine silver and $20 for one oz fine gold. They’re obviously counterfeit but the site doesn’t say they’re just replicas. They’re trying to pass them off as the real thing.

I can only confirm that Noble Metals ans Minerals in Dar Es Salaam , Tanzania managed by Edwin John Joshua and Simon Palm Shoo are scammers. We almost became vicitim but we were lucky we tested the collateral before payemnt. Collateral was brass instead of Gold by the way. Also watch out for their associates in Nairobi, Kenya. Especially Mr. Steve Mbogo Ndegwa is a well known scammer. Just stay away from these people.

Katanga Import and Export and Kamuzo General Supplies in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania are also used for scam and deceiving operations by the same group which is also managing Noble Metals and Minerals. Edwin John Joshua and Simon Palm Shoo are very good in their job. One basic rule that will work with them: Never pay any money upfront. Do not accept their collateral or fake stories. Just refuse and you’ll be safe..
