Hi. I am just writing this to let everyone in Austin Texas and surrounding areas to be aware of the highly popular...for reasons unknown..silver and gold stores that have been tearing a money hole n austin and wherever else they are. I hope they are not nationwide.
I went into the store because of the number of shops I have seen open in the past year. I figured well..if they have this many stores..they have to be doing something right. I also saw a advertisement in a magazine offering a 20 dollar bonus to everyone with a coupon who sold them over a hundred dollars in silver or gold..so I walk in with my gold ring..weighing 7 grams...and two ounces of silver..knowing or hoping to walk out with at least one hundred twenty..with coupon..so there's a guy ahead of me selling a small amount of gold...the Hispanic gentleman behind desk puts a small charm and a small thin gold ring on scale..and the scale read..2.1. Now I have been around silver and gold and scales for a while..I know it didn't seem right..they write him a check for 42 dollars..he seems unhappy..but leaves..I am next in line and present my stuff to him..already knowing what it weighs..
And I intentionally do not give him coupon for the fact I knew they would scam add it in to the figure..he tells me they only pay 50 cents a gram for silver..and less than 25 a oz. He then weighs my gold ring and writes me a total offer on a piece of paper for 54 dollars...I then ask him to re weigh the ring because he says it only came out to 3. I said that's impossible...he then tries to offer me a bit more because I realized the scam..well I said ok well I also have this..and I reached in my pocket and pulled the coupon out..this guy looks at me and smiles and says...I ALREADY ADDED THE COUPON IN... And I said now how did you know I had one? He said..we give everyone that walks in a 20 dollar bonus..
Keep in mind that there was a gold ring..over 6 grams...and 2oz of silver...I asked him to show me his scale..and he hesitated...PLEASE NO ONE GO THERE EVER AGAIN..THEY HAVE THEIR SCALE SET TO PENNYWEIGHT. SO A GRAM IS LESS THAN A GRAM..ALMOST BY HALF...BUT THERE PAYING LESS THAN A GRAM PRICE FOR PENNYWEIGHT....PLEASE PEOPLE..PUT THESE AS%$*@!%. OUT OF BUISINESS. THEY ARE SCAMARTISTS..I KNOW EVERYONE HAS TO MAKE A PROFIT..BUT THEY ARE ABUSING PEOPLE.
