This company "is not" connected to the US Mint; they sell collectibles and "reproductions"! After sending you a mail offer, that's too good to resist, they then proceed to ship (for your approval or return) anything and everything (they choose)-about every 10 days! Nowhere, in the fine print, on your first offer, does it say your acceptance gives them "carte blanche" to do this, at will!
After the second shipment, I returned it, with a letter telling them to ship "nothing" unless I specifically ordered it. Did that stop them?? No, I call my cc company, told them what was going on and requested they approve nothing further from this outfit. By the way, AM always took the full 30 days, they were legally allowed, before issuing credit!
Meanwhile, the "Mint" had "maxed out" my credit card (yes, the one I intended to use for Christmas shopping).
Two weeks after the last $70 shipment was refused (on Nov 13th) and returned to them, I called their customer service line and advised them that "they had, exactly 24 hours to re-apply the credit to my card, or I would report them to the FTC, the BBB (and the bbb), as well as all 300 email addresses in my address book". They mailed the item to me on Nov 10th (1st class) and it was returned the same way, so you know it was back in their inventory in 4 or 5 days.
Guess they didn't believe me, cause they took a full 45 DAYS to issue that credit. So, guess what, I'm keeping my promise- - have reported the incident to FTC, BBB and now to you (bbb) and am working the mass email, as I write this! They were warned, they ignored- -My advice: If you've never done business with American Mint, don't! If you do- -order COD and pay CASH (at the door)- - don't write a check, cause they're brassy enough to use your bank tracking number and charge your checking account!
Forewarned is forearmed!! Best wishes Colorado
