Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
The official Certified Gold Exchange has issued an Investor Alert for New York and surrounding states after a June 11th My Fox New York article reported that two men have been arrested for selling counterfeit gold coins through a popular classified advertisements web site. Certified Gold Exchange spokesperson Janet Jones said from her Fort Worth, Texas office on Friday that scammers often try to pass gold-plated coins off as through-and-through gold.
“Investors can sometimes get so caught up with our nation’s record debt and spending that the attention they normally give to details when investing gets diverted, and this creates a prime opportunity for con artists,” Jones said. “Scammers are trained to excite you emotionally so you forget to think logically.”
The My Fox NY article reported that at least 11 people have been swindled into buying fake gold coins by the two arrestees, and Jones believes more victims could be out there. “If you suspect you may have purchased fake gold coins, or if you need a recommendation for a reliable gold coin dealer, please give us a call because we hear these horror stories all the time. That’s why we only hire non-commissioned brokers, because they are always willing to point you in the right direction regardless of the potential profit of a trade.”
