    Nick was very helpful, informative and kind. He made sure I understood the process. Nick kept in contact and made me feel comfortable. I will make another purchase in the future because of the ease and security. I have nothing else to say about my experience. This is the end.

    This is an excellent company. Ron was a very prompt and patient guide (which I needed), available and helpful throughout the process. We had many conversations and I really appreciated the care taken to ensure that I was always and immediately connected to the same representative when I needed more information. He remains dutifully committed to providing great service, which is why I would absolutely recommend this company to friends and family.

    Whenever I would call, my Account Manager would answer using my name. This inspires me to accept the confidence of knowing I am trusting the correct company and most of all the representative on the line.

    When I contacted Lear about investing I knew virtually nothing about investing in precious metals. They were great in answering my questions, (and correcting some of my pre-conceived notions), without making me feel like an idiot. Since I had not invested in this type of market before, they were eager to answer any questions that I had. The transaction went very smoothly. The silver and gold that I had ordered came in the time frame that was guaranteed me, and they are now resting comfortably in my safe!!

    I bought $25,000 worth of silver many years ago. Two years ago I was having financial problems. I sold it back to Kevin **. He claimed it was stolen inside the building. He said for $100 he’ll deliver it back to my house while I paid $2000 and he kept scamming me. I never got my silver, never delivered. I lost approximately $80,000. I would never do business with Lear Capital again, it’s in the computer and all the paperwork is available

    Mr. Forcucci,

    We are disappointed to see you blaming us publicly for things that never happened, and we are confused where you are coming up with the details of this story. We verified with Kevin that he never spoke with you.

    We received cement bricks from you on 9/12/2022 instead of coins. We ultimately had to pay more than $100 for the shipping, because your box didn't have the agreed upon coins. If you were truly unaware the boxes did not have your silver, possibly you were taken advantage of elsewhere? We are very sorry if that happened to you.

    Our customer care team has left you two voice messages last week seeking to follow up with the comments in your review. We are happy to do whatever we can to assist you.
