I have had my pocket picked by GGMT


I purchased a box of silver coins from Global Gold and Metals Trading LLC (GGMT) through iOffer.com on 13 April 2012 that included shipping and bank wire fee.


I have never received the goods, they made excuses and gave me the run around for months.


On 2 July 2012 I requested a full refund, on 3 Aug 2012 they said that the refund cheque had been sent.


As of today I have not received the cheque from GGMT.


I requested that they send me a bank wire this is the reply I received 


" We do not send international refunds via bank wire. We are bound by rules in the USA regarding bank wire transactions. Bank wires are for purchases only." 

I have not received a bank wire refund.

I would not advise anyone to do business with this company, you have been WARNED!!!


If anyone reading this report would like to help me please email Adam at premetalex@gmail.com demanding that they refund my money invoice No. # 33719110 

Please mention that you read my ripoff report.

MY RESPONSE TO CASSI EAST

AUTHOR: Ivebeenrippedoff - (United Kingdom)

Miss East

That sounds easy but when I have not been provided with the contact details of the attorney then it becomes a little difficult to obtain a refund would you not say.

I have emailed GGMT at
premetalex@gmail.com but they do not reply to me any more.

What about the matter of the alleged criminal activities of GGMT are you going to suspend their trading account until all money is refunded to all people.
All Earl or his attorney have to do is accept the BankofAmerica recall that I requested many months ago which Earl has completely ignored after repeated attempts by BankofAmerica to contact him.

Miss East I am sure that if you were a victim of GGMT you would not hesitate to suspend the trading account of GGMT, so why the double standards?

REPLY FROM CASSI EAST

AUTHOR: Ivebeenrippedoff - (United Kingdom)

I apoligize that I did not respond to your email. I get hundreds of emails, I was out of office with the holidays and some how I completly overlooked this as I thought I did respond on 12/20/12(no excuse). I apoligize as this is not how I handle nor do business. After contacting the dealer I was told that all you need to do is communicate with the attorney and that you will receive your funds back.

 

Again, I apoligize for not getting back to you sooner and I hope that you are able to resolve your issue with GGMT

WHY NO REPLY FROM CASSI EAST OF www.certifiedcoinexchange.com

AUTHOR: Ivebeenrippedoff - (United Kingdom)

Dear Cassi East

You have not replied to my letter of complaint about GGMT you have not even had the decency to acknowledge my letter of complaint.
Do you not care that a company who is a member of your exchange has taken money from innocent people and not as yet paid them all back in full.
What kind of morals do you live by, why do you not show even a flicker of concern or interest for the victims of Global Gold Metals Trading.

What have you to say to all those people and victims of GGMT who are reading this ripoffreport, after all you are making money from GGMT as you allow them to freely trade through your exchange.

I have posted this e.mail to my ripoffreport.

Dear Miss East

I am a victim of Global Gold Metals Trading of Dumfries Virginia who are members of your exchange, this company has taken my money for goods I ordered back in April 2012 a total of $**** they have failed to deliver the precious metals, I have repeatedly requests that they refund my money to no avail, Earl Abdulmalik Mohammed the owner of the company has been charged with alleged mail fraud and is currently awaiting a trial date there may also be further charges pending, there is at present 15 victims of GGMT totalling an amount $1.3 million in alleged fraud, information provided by USPIS.

Here is a news article about the alleged fraud,

http://washingtonexaminer.com/gold-and-silver-seller-charged-with-internet-swindle/article/251350

According to your rules of membership

http://www.certifiedcoinexchange.com/dnld/GetFile.asp?Type=Report&File=CCETradingRules.pdf

Prohibited Practices

(b) Reporting or entering into ANY TRANSACTION in which transfer of coins or funds does not take place.

(g) ANY ACT or omission which is CONTRARY TO LAW or established practice in the numismatic industry.

Miss East I earnestly request that you SUSPEND the membership and trading account of GGMT until you have completed a full investigation of my complaint, I ask that you help me and the other victims obtain a full refund of money at current market value of goods ordered the price of precious metals has increased since we placed our orders, I and the other victims should not have to suffer financial loss due to no fault of our own, we have all acted in good faith and trusted Earl Mohammed when we sent him our hard earned money.

Miss East it cannot be ethical for your company to allow one of its members GGMT to treat its customer as they have treated us, I am sure you condemn whole hearteldy such behaviour and will not tolerate this from your members.

I have posted this letter that I have sent you to my ripoffreport #948320

I look foreward to receiving your HELP in securing our refunds and your reply which I shall also post to my ripoffreport.

Sincerely Yours

GGMT Acc BLOCKED by IOFFER

AUTHOR: Ivebeenrippedoff - (United Kingdom)

I received this email today

Caroline iOffer, Oct 04 09:37 (PDT): Hi ***, As we have previously mentioned, the seller's account has been BLOCKED: "We've placed a restriction on the seller account until this issue is resolved. The seller has been made aware of the situation." When a seller's account is restricted, their seller store is CLOSED. The seller's items are no longer available for sale. Thanks for understanding, iOffer

so the question is where is the Earl selling his metal from now? If anyone finds out his new selling location please post here. We will follow him anywhere he goes and explain to the new company he is using to sell his goods what he has done to us until he refunds our money.

To be fair to Earl (Adam) he did tell me yesterday in a phone conversation that he "is committed to refunding my money" he wants me to call his brother (no name given) on Tuesday 9 Oct 2012 to arrange my refund, he said that he had to wait 60 days to verify that the check he allegedly sent me had not been cashed, can anyone confirm that there is such a banking rule?

I will update my Ripoff Report with any new developments
Stay tuned

UPDATE email received from the Earl

AUTHOR: Ivebeenrippedoff - (United Kingdom)

Just received this email from the Earl aka Adam of globalgoldxchange

""Office phone number is 7039964852. Office hours are 830am-430pm mon-fri EST. We are not responding to any of your complaints or threats. The litany of emails and records tell the complete story."

What is this guy talking about? legitimate businesses handle complaints and give refunds, they don't just ignore them, my complaint is that I want a refund of my money what can be threatening about that.

the law says that I have a right to a refund, this guy is trying everything he can not to give our money back.

dose anyone have any comments.

"ROUGE TRADER" the Earl update

AUTHOR: Ivebeenrippedoff - (United Kingdom)

I telephoned my bank and requested that they initiate a chargeback or recall of the money I sent by bank wire to the bank account of GGMT, this is the email I received from the "Earl" Muhammed aka Adam

"We received a call today from our bank that you are attempting to reverse the transaction. Sir, do you realize that you have opened yourself to all manner of trouble? Do you really believe that our bank is going to reverse a transaction without our approval? "

he then went on to say " Sir, you really need to govern yourself and your actions going forward. As indicated earlier today your refund payment is in process."

The refund payment never arrived, the check he never sent and had no intention of sending. 

He becomes threatening because he doesn't like you trying to get your money back.

I have been constantly emailing iOffer about my issue they replied today with the following.

"Your request (#536920) has been updated.
To review or comment on the request, follow the link below:
http://help.ioffer.com/tickets/536920

Andy iOffer, Oct 01 15:19 (PDT):

We've placed a restriction on the seller account until this issue is 
resolved. We'll continue to monitor this situation and we apologize for
the inconvenience. Thanks,
iOffer


The FTC need to pick up on this SCAMMER AbdulMalik Muhammed and prosecute him, he probably has violated many FTC rules which incur financial penalties that would give him a kick up the butt to have to pay a load of FTC fines.

I call on everyone reading these ripoffreports even if you are not a victim on GGMT to please file a complaint about GGMT to the FTC and other agencies, if lots of people draw attention to this ROUGE TRADER we will hopefully stop him from financially harming anymore people.

If any one has a PHOTO of Earl Muhammed or driving licence photo or any kind of documents please post them so we can see who we are dealing with.

If anyone has any comments on how I should proceed they would be welcome.
