Thread: "Free silver" scam

  1. #1

    Default "Free silver" scam

    I just got this thing in the mail talking about a "national silver bailout program" and sending out "5 free bars of silver." It took some digging, but I finally found that they're offering to send me 5 grams of silver (in individual 1-gram "bars"), which are presently worth about $1.05 each according to http://www.buyinggoldandsilver.com/l...-per-gram.aspx , for "free" plus $9.95 shipping.

    I wonder how many people fall for this stuff? They also claim there's a 72-hour limit to get that precious silver, which of course is there to create a sense of urgency in the recipient and try to garner an impulsive response.. Ugh. I hate scammers.

    "The relevance of the brain's ventromedial dopaminergic systems to religious experience, belief and behavior is suggested by several lines of evidence, including the fact that a variety of clinical conditions related to dopaminergic dysfunction—mania, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), schizophrenia, and temporal-lobe epilepsy—are regularly associated with Hyper-Religiosity."

    I received this "Free Silver Bars" letter today. I am so glad I saw your thread, explaining how it is a rip-off. You saved me "a lot of digging" and $9.95. Thank you. Tamela Barbee
