More importantly, DeMeritt and his team have helped thousands of investors protect their savings and retirement through the well-timed purchase of precious metals. As a result, Lear clients report high customer satisfaction.
Polly Gable, a customer of Lear Capital has this to say, My representative, Victor DeRose, rates an A+. I had tried to purchase some coins from another company but they were so rude that I just hung up the phone. I was delighted to find Victor and his professional, kind, and helpful manner. I am recommending him to friends. All in all my first experience buying metals was a wonderful one. I hope to purchase more as time goes on.

===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Lear Capital 1990 S. Bundy Drive, Suite 600 Lear Capital is unethical and not honest about its practices. Los Angeles, California
Im writing my experience down so that it might prevent some other folks getting ripped off and scammed as I did. I will keep it short and to the point. Lear Capital recommended to me collectable silver coins and with their highest
recommendation that collectable coins hold their value you very well and have a better return than bullion historically. Lear Capital sold me each coin at a price which includes the price of a 1 oz of silver plus the collectable value
plus their fee. After a while the price of silver had gone up so I called to find out what my coins are worth only to find out that each coin is now worth 90% of an oz of silver!! They scammed me and made an instant 25% profit plus
charged me a fee on it. They have used the excuse that there has been an unexpected supply of the coin which dropped its value yet they took 6 weeks to get me the coin in place of the agreed on 10 days that is on the contract. When I asked why it took so long they said the demand was so high for the coin! So not only they scam their customers they are liars as well. They sell coin at a value that they will not honor when it comes time to buy back the coins. Please dont be
fooled their response will be that this is a long term investment and we ask our customers to hold the coins for 3-5 yearsthe reason they say that is so that in that time they are predicting that 90% of the price of silver should be more than what they charged for the coin and that way it will seem that the customer made a profit.
Ive heard their advertisement on various shows and trusted that they are a legitimate only to find out that they are liars and are not to be trusted. Search their name on line and you will see all the other reports that have been filed against them. Please dont make the mistake I did.
