Bullion Direct's management continues to work with its consultants and attorneys, as well as with legal authorities, on a plan to address the complex issues which have resulted in the cessation of BD's ordinary course business activities. Other important considerations involve the preservation of BD's Intellectual property, which include a multi-industry Patent and proprietary software platform. The cessation of BD's ordinary course operations will continue while we finalize our plan to resolve all issues affecting our customers. We expect to have a more detailed update, posted on our website, by the end of next week.
There is a thread on the containment forum about someone getting bit by Bullion Direct.
With Tulving and Bullion Direct both screwing over their customers, paying a higher premium to a local coin/bullion shop sure seems like it's worth it.
If you don't hold it, you don't own it. If you buy online, you don't hold it until you hold it, but you pay up long before that.
It's been proven again. Don't go in for schemes of storage. Why the heck do you need it stored? There are risks to storing yourself I understand but know the difference between public storage (banks, depositories etc.) and private storage (you). Both can be thieved but by making your treasure public knowledge you have increased the number of possible thieves and their power to do so.
OK, apparently they now require a SSN on file in the profile for all customers? I tried to place an order and discovered it this morning, so they are off my radar from now on. I can't think of any legit reason they'd need that info and it presents too great of an identity theft risk to my view, so they are off my radar from now on. Too bad...they had good prices quoted on SAE's and RCM 100 oz bars.
Glad I listened to my spidey sense and suspicious nature and avoided them. Granted they may have delivered on an order back then, but I would hate to think that my SSN is now part of their "intellectual property".
Also, if they think they'll get millions for their Nucleo/ordering system then they've lost their mind. I'll be SHOCKED if it brings $50K.
