    I have placed 3 orders for silver from Lear and have been very pleased with the way the company handled my orders. If there was any kind of advance problem getting the silver, it was explained in detail before I placed the order. I received confirmations when the order was placed and when it was shipped.

    I have a 401k and I wanted to invest in gold or silver. I heard of Lear Capital on the internet. I asked for a package and read through it and decided I was going to take out $10,000 to invest. I filled out an application. I was contacted by Coe and he walked me through the application and was picked up by Federal Express. He let me know he got the forms and gave them to Gina in the IRA dept. It took about 6 days to get the account opened. I am very happy with Coe and Gina how they kept in touch until all was ok. Then I called Coe and he recommended what I should do which was to go with silver at this time and later get into gold which I will. They were very professional and they made the experience excellent. I never had any issues. Thank you very much.

    I recently purchased some Silver Snow Falcon coins from Lear Capital. Ms. Jody **, Senior Account Executive, was the agent that assisted me with my purchase. From initial phone call to delivery took less than three weeks. The coins were packed tightly in tubes so that they would not rattle -- a safeguard against damage and revealing what was being shipped. The tubes themselves were packed in a sturdy container and this container was shipped in a nondescript brown box, which also is a shipping safeguard against theft. Ms. ** kept me apprised of the progress of my purchase, from check receipt to estimated date of delivery, with timely phone calls. This is the third time I've purchased metals from Lear, and I have been very satisfied with the service on each occasion.

    Lear Cap. is typically very easy to deal with, but this time was different. First, after placing my order, I called back with an issue, and left a message. When no one called back after a couple of days, I had to leave another... still no return, so I called back again. Very disappointing. Then, when I received my order, the coins were not what I had ordered. Instead of the Indian head silver rounds, they were something completely different (still 1 oz. silver rounds, but not what I ordered). After checking the website, I spotted the disclaimer which stated "Coin shown may not be the same as..." So it's partly my fault, but still makes me apprehensive to order from Lear again.

    I spoke with Alex ** on 12/28/15 and got some numbers for coins that I was interested in. Several times during the conversation Alex confirmed to me that I would receive $500 in silver Snow Falcon coins. At no time did he say anything about having to order 50 Snow Falcons to qualify for one extra. At the end of the conversation, I once again confirmed that the order we had discussed would include $500 in free Snow Falcons. The next day, when I called back, Alex was not there. The person I talked with the next day informed me that no such offer was available and would not be included with my order. aI assume that you can review the recorded conversation to confirm my conversation. Needless to say, I was greatly disappointed.

    Lear Capital sounded like a reputable company. My representative there has been really sweet and nice and I've had a very pleasant experience so far. They've always done what they said they were going to do, and I appreciate that. I bought about $27,000 worth of 50-cent pieces that were thin or not in very good condition, which if I had to do over again I might go a different route. My brother, who was with Monex, was trying to give me advice on silver, and I'm not sure if I did the smart thing with going with Lear. I'm looking for the price of silver to go up, but it's pretty slow. I called the rep back and she says, "Well, take out the ones you don't want and mail them back to us and we'll send you some '64 Kennedys." So, I did that and everything went fine. I like working with the precious metals, but that took a pretty good chunk to start with. The silver content is the route that I've been going, not the coins.

She made me feel like a family member to her and that kind of support is why I put my trust in Lear Capital. She is so wonderful to work with. She takes pride and really understands the fear customers have when they are deciding to make this move. Her enthusiasm is the only reason I decided to move in this direction. She was very thorough in describing the different types of metals to me and her advice on what to decide on helped tremendously as I did not know anything about precious metals until I met her.
