Classic bait-and-switch: I was quoted by a woman on the phone $65 over spot price for gold, but charged $75 over spot in person. Seems like a small difference for a n00b like me, but consider that 10 x 100 customers is $1000 extra that they made from bait & switch.\r
""Ask spot"" today was approx. $1064 when I walked in. I bought 1oz for $1139. I even asked the counter man ""is that like $65 over spot?"" and he replied ""Yeah"".\r
I realise in a couple of years all these prices will be funny and moot, but my duty is to warn other shoppers today about this unscrupulous business.\r
On another thought maybe they are quitting business because the display cases seemed barren in comparison to coin shops that I regularly visit. They do have a junk tray for the scavengers.
