Found it very suspicious when asked to Buy metals "that they are selling and was told to DEPOSIT my money in the Bank of "the name of the saleperson" Then found it / he was the owner of the compnay.

It was commingling of Funds. I asked if Cash was ok or check (and said yes to both but prefered check as would get a (Cash counting fee)  so check was prefered..

I asked about credit card "but was told that it was Faster to go to the bank (they use and / make a deposit)

He gave full details of his routing # and bank account.. Gave both banks either Wells Fargo, and then later called back and said Please deposit at Sun trust/ as had problems with "wells Fargo"

Later found out That The Bank (had closed all accounts to do with Golden Lion and Roaring Lion.

He as I was trying to buy metals (directed me to natural cures and that of CD's of empower-ment.)

All looked and sounded as (information that 1 could get FREE from any -site on Internet)..

Also the Health products were that of/ no brand ever heard of before and so called natural some of Ginseng "grown in his partners own firm/ asked ingredients and was 98% Alcohol and hint of Ginseng

Glad asked as I do-not drink (and what could be benefit of "near pure alchohol" what of people that cannot have or do not drink?

Also was starnge that wanted money Now but products would take 4-6 weeks./ It seemed odd that 1 would ask for money and NOT have product/ as Felt as was using MY money to BUY product and was higher cost then I could get from the Place itself.

I had heard from others that  (this was typical "called using the float" Where would be using MY money to Buy product and marking it up (for There gain) and not having any money themselves.

I looked at then past filing of taxes as "Public record and over 80% was made from so-called Nature products and very little from Metals sales them selves...

I asked about the Golden Lion made Silver and Gold and was told (it was special) but as read it was just .999 Silver and .9999 Gold and IF wanted that (they had issues of making NEW and more "called Avalon Rounds or Bars, But could Buy the special  ones that he the sales man had as hsi own.

I looked further and last name was tied to a crime family in the Mid-west.

It all seemed very fishy to me and find No working web-site where 1 can order from direct must call leave a message and then (the owner himself calls you back)..

Is only fixed on gold and silver / asked about Numismatic coins and common names and (he was speach less as had no idea what they were.

Found that odd a Precious metals dealer would not know of Common knowledge in the metals world.

Kept trying also to get me to buy OPM rounds / I had asked what standed for or who made/ and did not get answer (but looked and a Generic round made by NTR and buying direct was much lower as was trying to mark up over 20% or near 5$ per ounce and on NTR was only Most 2$ over spot.

Very odd kept talking about the "energy" of magnets and it would empower me and those around me so was leading me to Buy then Magnets. I said I called for precious metals Not magnets

It was all a lead around to Other product as like they were trying to get-rid of it. The magnets spoke about were more then 10 ounces of Silver. (for magnets)..?? and then the health items came up again and again...

The most Strangest of all was NO forms to fill out / just kept telling me to Deposit the money Into his personal account/ now as my CPA said that was commingling funds as he said was Golden lion mint and products fom Golden lion mint yet was to be paid to  Tony Ballisistreri. 

As searched further found that they had done seminars and linked to a known Charged Fellon Kevein Trudea (which is a marketer himself and has lawsuits for far in excess of 20 million dollars for Fraud and that of commingling funds.

I then said No and kept getting calls  (that could provide reference) and when given most were connected to the company it-self

I am now reaching out and telling others to watch out for ALL would be could be money traps (and this sure lined up to be one of those traps and scandals
