The following day, 10-5-2007 I was contacted at home by a "Loretta" 1-800-835-0008 ex#2460 to let me know that Eastern Numismatics was refusing to honor my completed transaction because 1. The selling price was too close to their actual cost 2. Their company has to pay their credit card company processing costs. 3. They told me I could have the merchandise if I mailed them a personal check out-of-state for the full amount.
I had never done business with this company before, and I was not going to mail a personal check for over $800.00 and hope the coin arrived sometime in the future. I guess the request was to avoid the credit card company processing costs.
I told Loretta's supervisor that I expected him to honor the price that I was quoted, and to except full payment by the method that their web-site instructed me to pay with.
They did invite me to purchase any of their higher prices coins. The old, "Bait and Switch," or "Lost Leader" techniques are still being applied to the US consumer. PS The coin is still on their web-site for the same amount 1-week later, and I'll bet they request a credit card payment!!!
