U.S. Gold Bureau
ConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
I am writing this review because I called John at the U.S. Gold Bureau wanting to buy a gold bullion or Gold coin buffalo. He pressured me to buy an investment buffalo coin. Also when he transferred me to disclaimer then another lady came on and said, "You buying 2 coins correct?" I said, "No, only 1." So I am transferred back to John. So I ask what the deal is in buy back. He says, "Well if you keep the coin 3 years we will buy it back -18% of the value." What a crock! Then I come home one day and there is a FedEx sticker on my door where I have missed a delivery that I was not informed of. So right now I am sitting here the next day missing work. I own my own business so I am really losing $ now and missing a doctor's appointment because if I do not wait for FedEx I will have to drive 2 hours to another state to pick up my coin at the FedEx office. I think this sales was deceptive and uninformative. I wouldn't buy U.S. Gold Bureau if I were you.
Updated on 10/26/2017: I received my coin after much loss of time and $. There is too much to say here. I am presently asking this company to return my money and I will return their overpriced coin. I will update you on the outcome. Original salesman avoiding me now. New contact is trying to sell me even more outrageous priced coins when I questioned him about the price of the one they sent me. Then Martin (the new contact) even called me back with more high pressure sales tactics on even more outrageous priced coins. Want five times plus their worth and telling me it has to be a instant decision.
I made a purchase of graded new U.S. Gold Eagle coins from U.S. Gold Bureau. Prices and availability were competitive with other online sellers. I got discount pricing for paying by personal check, rather than credit. Product was shipped, tracked and delivered promptly; and I received exactly what I had expected.
