I have invested my life savings with Aurum Advisors.

I looks like I have lost over half.

Have been trying to retreive my money for almost three weeks now and no one is available to take my calls, 22 of them.

It appears they they charge around 1K per coin above the actual value. This is is justified by saying that they are traded in some sort of rare coin market that costs $4300 to join. I have yet to find this so-called market.

I originally invested 50K. Their latest valuation is 63K Not bad-but try to cash it in. All of sudden nobodys home.

The gold is held in trust and I seems I can access it but only a real market thtough another. Right now the gold held is worth about 24K. I invested 50K. It appears more then half is stolen.

I am in contact with the DOJ Fraud section and I will keep you posted.

I will post an apoligy if somehow this is straightened out. But I doubt it. Needless to say stay away from Aurum like the Swine Flu!

Another rip off

AUTHOR: raj123 - (United States of America)

Hey Steve

Similar thing happened to me. I bought Gold worth over 10k+ from aurum on March 05 2012 and since then chasing them for delivery/refund. Robert Drake the salesman agreed to refund on April 12 2012 but the story is the same. they never pick up phone or return calls.

I was told 4 days ago by the receptionist of the company that Robert Drake has left and the management has asked her to forward all calls to Voice mail directly. I think they mite be planning to shut off and run. I have left a voice mail at the number you gave, please contact me at (((redacted))).

Aurum Advisors Rip Off - Update #3

AUTHOR: Steve G. - (USA)

In Feb, 2012, Aurum agreed to exchange the gold in my IRA account, with Standard Trust, for $50000.
They had the gold forwarded to them, but have not replaced the $50,000.

After 5 months of unanswered phone calls, some excuses and out right lies. I am out the gold I purchased and the cash I invested with these crooks.

The Oregon Department of Justice is conducting an ongoing investigation. The F.B.I is looking into these folks. I am in the process of filing a complaint with the Calif. D.O.J.

If anyone steals 50K from a bank they would pay a hefty price. I have been robbed and Mark Luaska and his minion Barry Davis will pay a price. I will not be denied.

If you have been swindled by Aurum, you may cll me for direction to the proper authorities. (541) 496-3136.

I will post updates.

I since not received my cash since Dec.20/1010.I am convinced that these these crooks are involved in a Ponzi.  I now have the Oregon Dept. of Justice involved.

They are working on this case.

I also plan on notifing the FBI. The amount involved in this rip off is small ($50K) by FBI standards. I know that I am not the only party bilked by these worms. I am looking for other victims to join me in starting an FBI probe.

Please feel free to contact me.
