===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Goldline International Locked into buying coins I didn't really want! Santa Monica California
OK I was repeatedly contacted by a Goldline rep "Al Cortina" with a high pressure sales pitch. I know I should have just said no thank you and left it at that. I got talked into aggreeing to purchase $4000 worth of silver peace dollars and actually went through the process of confirming the transaction. I didn't actually realize this was a binding contract between me and Goldline nor was it explained as such, I thought it was just a formality.
In the next few days I decided I didn't actually want these coins and sent a check to them for $5000 with the intent to purchase silver bullion coins instead. I called "Al Cortina" and told him my intentions. He seemed a little upset but said he would take care of it.
To my surprise he took care of himself instead since there is more commision on the peace dollar silver coins than the silver bullion coins, he pushed the peace dollars through instead of the silver bullion I desired and he never contacted me. So I contacted him and he told me of what he did. They don't record these conversations so I had no proof he told me he would take care of my change of mind to silver bullion.
To make a long story short I made my way all the way up to the Vice President of Goldline told him my story and he brought in Al Cortina and asked him his side of the story in a conference call. Well good old Al denied ever talking to me about changing my order or saying that he would take care of it. I requested my funds be given back and to purchase the $5000 of silver bullion but that was denied, they said the transaction had already been processed and that made it final. I was conmpensated with 13 extra peace dollars in an attemp to satisfy me which it didn't I took them because that was their final offer.
I say to you don't agree to anything you don't really want from these people, their slaes personel are there to make maximum profit from you and satisfaction is not guaranteed. I will never do business with these people again!
