    I answered their website questionnaire and hit send. Said they would call me within 48 hours to get my information about getting one American Silver Eagle well below cost. A marketing thing.

    I have received no phone call or any other correspondence but I have gotten emails on a daily basis asking me to buy one thing or another.

    Sorry, you either do it on the up and up and do it with precision or I am out. Before anyone calls me a bargain hunter or cherry picker remember THEY are the ones who advertised such a thing and THEY are the ones who didn't live up to it.

    I am always amazed at how absent minded companies can be until you owe THEM money.

    I filled out the above form for a free subscription to "The Gold Monitor" and I checked the box to receive a FREE graded Silver Eagle and I only had to pay S&H $9.95, the next day I got a 5 min. call from a Rep asking me basic questions, I told him I was researching and not ready to purchase bullion only, he said he'd call back next week. I obviously had to give him a CC # (pre-paid Visa) for S&H, I'll update. I think I bought 10 1/10oz GAE's from them back in 2007 or 2008 for spot? I can't pass up such a deal...

    I filled out the form. We'll see what happens.

    1/10 GAEs at spot? Here's to hoping!

    Sounds an awful lot like just anther flavor of that same company out of Houston area that goes by about a dozen of different names pushing overpriced "collectible" coins to elderly and other "less-than-informed" customers. They are the ones that run the ads in many magazines using SAEs and GAEs as loss leaders just to get your information. Most of GIMmers have gotten some decent deals from them in the past, but you have to understand whom you're dealing with.

    Mine is on the way too. Dude called me and I polightly declined further purchases at this time. THen I called after reading their email about having the ATB coins for sale. They wanted $2300+ ! I told him what they are going for on the bay and what I paid from Amark. I always enjoy free silver too.

    I have only received one call to date. Just get a few emails from time to time which I am happy to review to keep tabs on the vendors, pricing and marketing.

    These guys wouldn't give me the SAE. They acted like it was never asked for in the form.

    Oh well. It has not been my silver buying month but now it's March. May be better. I wrote a negative email to them but never picked up the phone when they called back.

    Received a scam email supposedly from them today. Said "thank you for your order, confirmation #03992039023". Then it had a link which allegedly was suppose to lead to my invoice. Before clicking it, I checked the URL properties and it was an .exe file. I haven't ordered physical metal in 9 months and only ordered from them once on ebay last July. Never from their website. I'm guessing either their records have been compromised or they sold my info to someone who has been compromised.

    info@usgoldbureau.com is where they email came from

    Received the same email myself today. I've been getting fraudulent Costco emails, Amazon Prime emails, and others.

    I just received an email actually from us gold bureau saying to disregard the previous email. They acknowledge that it was a scam and say not to click any links, but that my personal info hasn't been compromised. Mmmmhmmm, right

    I got one too. It was confirmation that my allotted pm's were being pulled and sent and they wanted their money. I have never dealt with them so I knew it was a complete fraud.

    Shared the negative.... bogus scam email

    Now for the positive. Long story short. My delivery got returned to them by Fedex. USGB is footing the bill to have it shipped back to me again, via USPS. Great customer service. Resolved with one email.
