We were misled about purchasing gold/silver from this company and never given a choice of what to purchase or what their profit margin was going to be.
We were contacted by the salesman at Hartford in mid 2016 about investing in gold/silver. We thought about it for awhile, when the individual told us more we decided to try the The Hartford Gold Group. We when we decided to invest our $85,000 into a Gold IRA with gold/silver buffalo coins. We were never given a choice of what types of gold/silver to invest in, or to what it would cost and what their profit margin would be. It was 55%. That is criminal. We should have called Goldco or Apmex as they sell the same coins for a 5% fee.
Hartford Gold Group just told us that they purchased the gold and silver and it was being sent to Delaware. We received a statement from the storage facility that the gold/silver we bought was worth $39,000 in one month time. We were in disbelief as to how $85,000. could only be worth $39,000. I called The Hartfor Gold Group and spoke to their CEO. I said I wanted our money put back into our IRA and the gold/silver unwound and taken back. He said he could only give us back $40,000 I was furious that they could steal $45000 of my IRA as profit for them.
I would never have invested with them had they been upfront about what their commissions were, or we were not allowed to choose what we invested in. This is a crooked company in my opinion and is out to deceive people in order to take their money. We want all of our $85,000 back so we can put it back into our Fidelity account. These people need to be brought up on fraud charges for deceiving the public. Hartford Gold Group is a scam.
Before you buy from these crooks ask to see their account account agreement. Read it. Have your attorney read it. Also search online for the coins they are offering. You will find them else where for much less. Do not buy their buffalo coins. You pay so much money it is theft. And also speak to the owner. His name is not Sandi, it is some middle eastern name. Buyer beware.
