I usually choose my words carefully before talking about anyone else. However, this company, Wilshire Coins which should rather be called Wilshire Cons left me frustrated and disgruntled that whatever I will speak about them will still be less.
I am an old man and stay far from this company office. I had to sell my coins. I knew the name of this company through a friend who was also looking to sell his coins and he suggested that I should go check it out.
Before arriving there, I wanted to check for the rate as I do not drive, and I had to pay for the Uber for reaching there. So, I called these guys. It took some time for someone to answer. That guy asked me to wait for a little while and came back with the final rate.
He told me that the rate would be $302 each. When I asked about any differences that could come out after checking the coin, he said that it won’t be much. Few pennies here and there.
The price seemed decent to me. So, I booked the cab and left for their office. When I arrived, I kept standing at the reception for around 10 minutes. I could see people talking from distant and checking me out. But, the guy only came after I had to speak it loudly.
After looking at me and knowing the reason for my arrival, he asked me to show the coins. I was waiting for him to speak before another person came. He was the same man who spoke with me on the phone.
After checking my coins, he started talking rubbish about the condition and the manufacturing defects that was not the case at all. I had it reviewed by a friend who sold coins and he never mentioned such problems.
So, I knew they were lying. He proposed me a price of $290. It was $120 less than what it was proposed on the phone. They had their reasons for cutting the price down, but they were unjustified.
I took the cab back to my apartment. I am never going to deal with these people. They are a bunch of idiots.
They will make you believe that your assets are worth nothing and they are doing a favor by offering their price for such item. This tactic is not only shameful but illegal as well. Cheating customers are never going to pay them returns.
They are the most unreliable, untrustworthy and unfaithful company I have ever dealt with. They not only ate my 2 hours of time but made me pay for the cabs for both the sides of travel.
I have not much saving left, and I was looking forward to selling these coins to open a small business. But, I think it will have to wait for now. I am never going to come back to these people again. I know I will find a place better than this. But, I wanted to warn others who are not much aware of the actual price of their assets.
Just beware of these people.
