I was concerned about our economy and wanted to buy silver for security. I tried to check out for options and a friend recommended me Lear Capital.
I knew that our economy was not in a good shape and incase we get the silver, we would be able to save ourselves from a lot later. My friends also suggested me to do the same thing and introduced me to Gary, this is when the problem got started.
Gary was convincing and was great at changing minds of people. He educated me a lot about silvers and I was really impressed. He made me trust him through his knowledge about silvers.
That is how, he gains the trust of his customers. When I told him that I wanted to purchase rounds and bullion’s, he suggested that I should go for collectibles and their worth will be more in coming future.
He even offered me 8 for free and I was too excited to get the deal done. I paid him $17000. He made me believe that I had made the right decision until I discovered the fact that I was cheated. Later, I got the quarterly statement that specified my account value to be $8500. I was shocked to see the figure and thought that could be some typo.
However, to clear the confusion, I called Gary to check about the value. He did not pick up the call. I got worried and called their office. A lady answered the call. I asked her to recheck the account detail and let me know if there was anything wrong with the statement. She verified and told me that I was mistaken and the details were perfectly fine.
So, I kept trying Gary’s number and he did not answer for couple of weeks. I tried to search on internet and found out many complaints registered against the company. The problem is In many cases, they had not even shipped.
I was shocked to see the reviews of people who made online purchases. One review stated he did not get any confirmation number after making the payment and when he tried to contact Lear Capital, they did not fix the issue even after making promises.
It was also written that they gave him a wrong tracking number and later said that the item could not be shipped as there was some internal issue with the order. That guy is still trying for his refund.
That was the time I knew I was tricked. I tried to contact Gary from another number and he picked the call. When I wanted an explanation, he told me that the price was a meltdown price and I needed to find a client who is ready to buy those at the premium cost to make profit.
Is this how it works? Even if it does, I would have never bought silver from them. There are hell lot of options available and to get into a contract with a scammer would have been the last thing I would have considered to do. Lear Capital is a scam.
