Hello James my name is Derrick Ryan I have a freind who worked for you and had nothing but good things to say about your company!
I was wondering if I may have an oppertunity to work for you as a buyer? I understand this is not the most professional way to go about this however I do not have any other means of contacting you, and if there is an oppertunity to come on with your company I do not want to miss it.
I would give you my number but this site does not let you my email is [email protected]
Thanks for you time James

Allan since your an employee of the treasure hunters roadshow I would only expect they would pay you more. Didn't you guys get shut down for impersonating the antique roadshow?

BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY -- We got taken for $2750. They claimed to be brothers, but did not look anything alike. One was large and the other was average in height and body girth. They talked a good story of how much they went through to be able to dF BIo business in our community in Southern California. We got the check on Friday and learned on the following Thursday that it had bounced. Off to the local District Attorney, then to the FBI (Interstate fraud detail), County Sheriff, local Police and Small Claims Court we go. First to report them and then to sue them. The judgment will be enforceable in Arizona or any state they hide in.

I recently dealt with your company, the young man was very professional,, Can you tell me why the check bounced that you presented to me for the items that you bought.
I cannot help but wonder if this is teh same person I found in Montana that had a non-sufficient check given to them for $590? I am also having to sue to get satisfaction from this company. Seems they went from good to no so much when reading these postings!

I went into the event yesterday and the little red haired girl was great. I found out the company changed names and that is why I could not find info on them. I had some scrap gold that has only been taking up space and for that small bit of 14k gold I got $500.00, wow! I have sent her loads of people from the school I work at here in Harlingen, TX and I am so excited she may be coming back in a few weeks, now what else can I dig up to sale! She is very professional and the most sincere and genuine person. Everyone make it out to one of these events you WILL NOT be disappointed!

These people will offer you 50% or less of what the item is worth. The owner want to double his money anytime he buys something.

Well folks, here's another installment of the never ending Dukes Coins, Duke Coin LLC, Phoenix Coin LLC saga.

After Mr. Duke failed to appear at court yesterday, I was automatically awarded my claim. I am going to sent a copy of my judgment, along with many other articles proving the "character" of Mr. James Duke.

I cannot urge all of you enough to band together and file a class-action suit. All parties pay only one attorney, therefore cutting dramatically the fees paid by each party! The only way we can stop this kind of business practice is to set an example. As I have already won a judgment, I cannot join a group seeking a settlement or I would be organizing this myself!

Good luck to all of you pursuing your rights!

Sure glad I checked out "Phoenix Coin, LLC" online. There is a fullpage ad in the Valley Morning Star (Harlingen, Texas) saying the company is buying gold, silver, etc. FYI they will be at Country Inns & Suites, 3825 South Expressway 83, Harlingen, TX 78550 from 1-11 to 1-15-2010, phone 877-251-0434. The ad claims "Phoenix Coin, LLC" is a member of ANA. I checked the ANA website and there is no record of membership under that name or under "Duke Coin." The ad also claims that the company has been in business over 30 years. I'm sure that is BS. I was planning to take some items to Harlingen to sell but, of course, will not do so after reading all the negative comments.

Joe, I am so glad that some of you out there are researching these "companies" first, and therefore not having the problems we are. Congratulations on saving yourself the trouble that all of us are having, and having the smarts to publish your findings for all to see. Actions like yours will help this kind of thing to cease.

Okay, I have to ask: what kind of moron turns over valuable coins and jewelry in exchange for a check from an out-of-town or out-of-state company doing business out of hotels? Hello, anybody have an IQ higher than 50?

It is obvious that in the past there were problems with the checks. The thing is that Duke Coins/Phoenix Coin did everything and anything to make the costumer happy. I doubt there was any costumer that experienced getting "robbed" by this company. The company always made sure the costumer received the correct payment. When the bounce checks were occurring it was OBVIOUS it was a the bank's mistake or else the company would no longer be in business. THE POINT IS THAT, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY OF BEEN A HASSLE WITH THE CHECKS TO BEGIN WITH EVERYONE GOT THEIR MONEY IN THE END. It is good to do research on the company before bringing in your items but what is funny is that some people are actually taking total stranger's words, and not only that, but on a blog website. I have nothing bad to say about Duke/Phoenix Coin. When I went in and recieved my check, there were no problems whatsoever. There was a down to earth atmosphere and professional, kind employees. The bouncing checks were their bank's mistake to begin with not Duke Coins. Because of that, the name change occured to get away from the bad rep, FOR THE REASON THAT THERE ARE NO MORE BAD CHECKS. They have switched banks and now there is no bouncing checks. I mean, this company is clearly just trying to help out the economy and does not deserve this bad rep from a blog website. INSTEAD OF TRUSTING A TOTAL STRANGER'S WORD ABOUT THE COMPANY'S PAST WHY NOT TAKE IN YOUR ITEMS TO YOUR LOCAL EVENT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF THE NEW AND IMPROVED PHOENIX COIN.
