FDR confiscated the gold. So did Fidel. Barack will too.
I guess advertising really does pay, no matter how lame the commercial.
Gee, what a coincidence. A sponsor of conservative commentator Glenn Beck is being investigated for fraud.
Anyone who really believes this investigation isn’t solely based on political grounds is delusional. The left is desperate to de-legitimize Beck and any conservative commentator and going after their sponsors has long been one line of attack, which usually fails, as this one will.
So, Beck is RIGHT.
To the mattresses.
The left, once again showing Americans how they are nothing more than repugnant pigs...
A few weeks ago Beck revealed he had a discussion with his advertisers about things like this happening.
FWIW - there are better places to buy gold than this place.
But CNBC's boss is "owned" by Obamassiah so it's OK.
He might cry again.
Invest in tissues.
Lied to... Got something different from what they ordered... Lots of complaints...
Funny, sounds like the federal government
When will we get an investigation started to look into the practices of congress?
“Blanchards” is good. I didn’t like Goldline because they were too fast and slick on the phone. Wouldn’t take time out to explain anything.
Sounds like a perfect case for Eric H. Holder’s Justice Department - unless of course we’re talking about black gold.
Maybe they should look into that company that says they can make your winker bigger and everything will be delivered in a plain brown wrapper. Someone I know (not me) has sent them over three hundred dollars and we still call him (not me) ‘needle dick the bug fu”ker.’
This is true of every non-essential product advertised on TV, from BMW to water filters :
Persuasion aimed at the clueless, the ignorant and the not so bright. You can't eat the stuff, it can't cure your illnesses, it can't pay your mortgage or pay your taxes, and it makes you a target of every criminal within 100 miles of your home.
Imagine when, as has happened with credit cards and identities, your name, among millions of others are stolen, complete with adresses.
Also imagine the government ordering all individuals to turn in all physical gold, and personal ownership deemed illegal--- wait---- that's already happened once. Never mind.
Criminal oppresive government can't protect the stupid. It can ony exploit them further.
The timing may be suspect, but it looks like Goldline is trying to sell high markup gold coins to people, coins with dubious numismatic value, to folks who are really looking for gold as an investment, a hedge against inflation, and where the buy back value of the coin according to the spot gold price, is close to the price paid at the time of sale.
Whether this is illegal or not, I don’t know, who knows what salespeople on the phone, who are getting a commission, say.
Hopefully, they tell the truth, but in any case, from what I have learned on the subject, the mark up on the coins that GL is pushing first and foremost to callers is very high, and way above industry standards.
And of course, just like any business you might consider doing business with, you have to ask yourself, eh, they are advertising on TV, and on all these expensive venues, they expect to make this money back somehow, ie, charging people more.
