I want to say thank you to Scorp and the many other people on this site. Although I am not an old timer, I appreciate the words of wisdom and help that I have received. Especially help about one unnamed bullion broker in CA that tried to scam me and many others before the law enforcement officials shut him down some time ago. Warnings from members about bad dudes and bad sites really are appreciated. I'm also happy that my small contribution as well as that of many others enabled us to meet our goal to stay active. Best wishes and congratulations to all!
Luckabuck you saved me big. I had bought from said dealer three times previously with great success and was literally 2 days away from buying again until I saw your post. Your adamant nature made me realize things had changed. To make it worse it was for my mother in law from the sale of her home after she moved in with us. Thank you and thank GIMers for proving the point. As Reagan used to say in no pale pastels but unmistakably clear bold color /views here on GIM.

I caught hell for my posts about this guy when everything I saw said "big time scammer", and I took it on the chin. A lot of the people that jumped me big time are no longer on this site, and I avoided a huge big time loss with what I did and said. I was sweating bullets with the money that I had given this ass hole.

I remember, they jumped you like you were the bad guy - pissed me off. You saved a lot of people a lot of grief by going public with your ordeal. You were luckabuck to have come out of that with your hide.

I think the main one was - he was some kind of two-bit reseller - probably got stuff on credit from the crook.

It was only up for one day. Scorp needed X-dollars and got it pretty quick.

You can donate as all is accepted, me? I march to the tune of a different drummer and he don't know how to carry a beat. Now as far a joined dates, did I really find this place on April the first? Day-amm....

edited to add: Oh the scurrilous banner change colors. Must mean out of the frying pan and missed the fire.
