  1. A wise old man once said... "use your melon!" πŸ˜„ I'd guess it's one of two things. (1) A scam to get your money with no intention of ever giving you anything. (2) They intend to gamble peoples money on high risk investments for the next 2 years to try and make a big profit. If they manage to double up, they'll give people their effective return of 18% in 2 years and pocket the rest. If they don't manage to make a profit (more likely), they'll close down this pop-up company and you'll take 100% of the loss.
  2. Likewise, thanks for the heads up πŸ™‚ Unfortunately my lowly membership only let me see the thread today πŸ˜…
  3. Oh dear. On that note, I'm out from GSB in the future. I can see their POV when buyers mess about but this is ridiculous. That box should have been sealed and new, that's the point of buying a monster box..! Hard to say about the capsules, if you ordered 300 of the wrong type and just relied on a message to get you the correct one's then that's on you I'm afraid.
  4. Hi all, For sale is eight 1/4 troy oz .999 proof gold coins - so a total of 2 troy ounces. I am selling at spot price (+P&P) in minimum amounts of 4 coins (1 oz). Pricing, Postage and Photos below, but first some info on the coins: These are 50 euro coins minted by the Central Bank of Ireland, which is where I bought them from. They were minted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Don't worry if you don't know what that is, there's a little booklet with each coin that explains (πŸ˜„). Each coin comes in a capsule with a wooden box, ind
  5. So they weren't stealing? I'm shocked! πŸ˜›
  6. This is the kind of thing you need to think about when buying really. I'd sell the silver rather than transport it personally, the taxes aren't worth it. To be fair, it's easy in hindsight to pick the winners out and point at big numbers. Although if you were going to cash out for stocks, with metals at a high and shares at a low, it could be a good time to do it.
  7. I'm not with the HGM press department (honestly πŸ˜„) so I'm not saying they're faultless here by any means. Just saying if you really want a resolution, it seems odd to me not to pick up the phone after the emails didn't work for whatever reason.
  8. I think your negative experience would hold a lot more weight if you'd made a phone call. I remain convinced you'd have got a fair resolution. You can argue on principle you shouldn't have to call them, sure I agree, but in practice they've always been very helpful when I've spoken to them. Ultimately when you boil it down to the bare bones, they made a mistake and either sent the wrong coin or listed the wrong coin. Not good. Then communications failed as your emails don't appear to have reached anyone, which could be as simple as a tech issue. They don't advertise email as a form of co
  9. Rick is not impressed with you giving away trade secrets πŸ˜„
  10. Buddy I think you're taking it a bit personally. I understand now that you weren't blaming GSBE, but nevertheless it's their name in the title and their name all over your post about a UPS issue. I think it's plenty clarified at this stage. I hope your coin turns up OK.
  11. Not particularly clearly to be honest. May not have been your intention, but the original post does appear to imply GSBE at fault. Anyway, hope your coin turns up OK. "So I have read some nightmare stories about goldsilver.be" "this is why I tend to buy direct from the Royal Mint or European Mint its such a stressful time purchasing from new people." "wondered if other people had issues with goldsilver.be and UPS."

    Probably Fake

    Sure. Folk that inherit them on the other hand... plenty of genuine clearance stuff end up in auction sales from what I read on here. The buyers end up paying spot or more so they don't get a great deal, but the poor sellers lose 30%+ on auction fees without apparently realising how easy it is to liquidate bullion gold near spot! These ones however are no doubt fake.
  13. I keep my coins in capsules, inside a fabric bag. My safety deposit box is small (to keep it cost effective), so I find this best for flexibly fitting stuff in. That's for gold of course, can't imagine it ever being cost effective to put silver in a SDB unless it's super numismatic. For Silver, sold it all now but I used to use a 250oz monster box that turned up randomly with a much smaller GSBE order (box only, not the coins! πŸ˜…)
