  1. thanks for the update - Ive just re-tried again - and now got my 1/4 griffin in a few clicks and no stress
  2. I have also read on my travels a method like this is often used as the alternative to a pay day loan or to raise funds very quickly. Funds are in your paypal instant, instantly withdrew to bank, money used to fix broken {insert whatever emergency}, you know you get paid from job in a few days time, time comes to refund or dispute is opened. Funds are there and then original transaction refunded. You effectively have a short term loan of a decent chunk of change at zero % with no additional credit searches against your credit file
  3. Got better things to do with my day and my blood pressure than wait this through to completion . Another sale lost Royal Mint - you never fail to disappoint me in one way or another
  4. Yeah mine wont complete either - they need to put some shillings in the meter
  5. Thanks @MickB I have been throwing odd cash over to Royal Mint from my bank account for a few months now, rounds down amounts, £10s and £20s here and there. Got enough for a cheapy 1/4 gold griffin today, and doesn't even feel like i've laid out any cash for it. the 1/4 griffin is nearly £15 cheaper than Atkinsons now Thanks for posting
  6. Also to add, i think a lot of this due diligence that people should practice when buying from eBay is much much harder to do these days if you are buying usings mobile phones, small tablets. and not using the full eBay set up on a desktop/mac or laptop. It is so much harder to fully vet a seller away from the traditional PC Finding out the past selling, detailed feedback, a read of a few pages of feedback, Is he using private listings, why ? Are they stock photographs?, Have the images been lifted from NGC/PCGS ? is feedback all buying and small selling ? Has the sellers bought many low value items for 100,000+ feedback mega cheap sellers to boost their rating to make them look better they are ? Are there any patterns or patterns with bad comments they get ? A seller cannot now leave a negative or neutral feedback for a buyer now, often by actually reading their feedback you can find very negative comments, that are left as a POSITIVE comments to alert others to circumvent eBay, use control + F to search a page of 200 feedback for key word "SCAM, RIP, TOOK, FAKE, FALSE" see it it shows anything up Just taking a few mins to do this on any item you've identified as a possible purchase can save you hours or earache and hassles down the line. Happy eBaying !
  7. Sorry to veer this off topic and Petes original problem but i may help all eBay buyers of gold/silver with my advice here below @Sovereign Yeah, and these are the perfect accounts to get hacked. Dormant accounts with established 100+ feedback, but no active selling (massive red flag) As it is not active it is unlikely to tip off the original owner of the eBay ID The items he has chose to list are all high tag (another red flag) eBay Feedback these days now works on a rolling basis, it is no cumulative. he also has a previous negative feedback http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=frenkcash&&_trksid=p2047675.l2560&rt=nc&iid=321112537514&sspagename=VIP:feedback&ftab=FeedbackAsSeller Last red flag his actual feedback for selling is only some 10+ items, fair due some positives are from coins sales, whoever the MAJORITY of his visually appealing positive feedback is nearly all from buying (another red flag when buying gold from ebay) Hope you both get your eBay issues sorted.
  8. Cant help but having a little gold drool at these photos
  9. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/fragellm/m.html?item=252760069514&hash=item3ad9ac958a%3Ag%3AWaEAAOSw5cNYmkHO&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Not so much bargain buys but an eBay seller has a few rarer slabbed gold panda up for grabs. To rich for my liking but thought i would share the love here for anyone who may be interested Although lowish feedback, all their previous sales are gold so all should be OK
  10. They are a forum sponsor and super reliable - used them several times and have had quicker service from them sending from Germany to the UK, than using some UK dealers They have UK bank and you can pay in sterling so no complicated currency transfers The britannias should be OK - they are not pure .999 fine but the old .925 - so 92.5% pure but still have full 1oz silver but cant guarantee anything - give em a call if these are your concerns @Jackobayliss
  11. 1925 available - plenty for everyone
  12. https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=EasyFX+mse+forum+site:forums.moneysavingexpert.com The Money Saving Expert crew normally get to the bottom of the good and bad of things what these cards have to offer.
  13. The reasons that pushed gold and silver to their highs of 2011 have not changed at all, they have not gone away, been solved Debts are bigger, much bigger Euro is further towards disintegration, Brexit had not even been suggested in 2011, The PIGS of Europe still in the chit, and nothing solved since the 2008 Dutch looking to exit euro, France looking to exit euro, Greece announcing it may use US $ dollar as currency leave euro, Russia, China, India still buying mega amounts of gold annually Demonising and prodding the Russian bear daily into another world conflict Further steps towards a cashless society Removal of high end Indian currency notes overnight announced Bail in trailed in Cypress bail outs done and now implemented and written into law of most western countries. The money in your bank just makes you an unsecured creditor, the money is not yours when deposited Negative interest rates weren't heard of in 2011 Real hyper inflation playing out in realtime in Venezulua Personal debt in the UK at the same as 2008 levels, housing market still due a massive correction As Roy said the other day, 9 out of 10 new cars bought on contract hire Look at the state of your local high street, can anyone say the economy is really thriving ?? Bank throwing loans at near zero percent and a trigger happy rug wearing wall building megalomaniac TV star in charge of the nuclear codes Do you want to be at this financial game of musical chairs when the music final stops and you don't have a chair ?? Just the very fact of holding silver/gold regardless of price gives you an invisible protection you have some cover should the wheels come off this bus any time soon.
  14. I can second Keith's old recommendation - those plastic containers from the Home Bargains shop here in the UK are very effective and cheap to store your capsules. Nice they come with little plastic dividers within them so nothing rattles around. With gold it is much easier, an old OXO tin normally is adequate for most {sigh}
  15. i just realised i forgot to mention you also have our own Royal Mint Bullion provide their own in house refined bullion. 1,000+ years established so cant get much more established than that https://www.royalmintbullion.com/ from their site : "The Royal Mint is one of the world’s leading mints, producing all the coins of the United Kingdom and is trusted with developing currency for more than 60 countries around the world, making it the world’s leading export mint. Today, The Royal Mint is an innovative and modern mint with state of the art facilities, machinery, equipment and techniques, based in Llantrisant, South Wales.
