10 Tips How to Avoid Gold Investment Scams TANA GOLDFIELD...

TANA GOLDFIELDS Articles 10 Tips How to Avoid Gold Investment Scams Before you invest a single hard earned penny, please read our tips on how to avoid common precious metals scams. 1. Research Each Company Thoroughly Many of the common gold investment scams which are found today involve companies which are relatively new, and were started simply because of the high price and demand of precious metals today. 2. Check with Your Local Better Business Bureau (BBB) If you are dealing with a local broker or company, check with your Better Business Bureau for any complaints or legal action taken against the company. If you are planning a gold investment in India then this step is not effective, and other methods of research may be needed. 3. Check the Online Gold Investment Forums If you want to avoid gold investment scams, some of the best places to research potential companies and investments are the online forums about investing in gold and other precious metals. Many forums have posts concerning companies that are scams, so you can avoid them. 4. Never Travel Out Of the United States to Purchase Bullion When you are considering all of your gold options, never travel outside of the United States with large amounts of money to purchase bullion. Some scams lure investors to foreign countries, where the investor may be robbed or even killed. 5. Use the Internet with Common Sense Online offers for gold investment can be legitimate or they can involve scams. Use common sense and evaluate each offer before making any final investment decisions. There are many fake gold coins and bars being offered online. 6. If an Investment Seems Too Good To Be True, It Usually Is A number of gold investment scams involve claims which seem too good to be true, and this is an indication that a scam is being perpetrated. Gold investment accounts, gold futures, and other investing types which do not involve taking possession of bullion can be a higher risk for fraud. 7. Only Use Trusted Companies To Buy Bullion From Or Invest With If you are looking for gold bullion for sale, or a company or fund to invest in, make sure the company you choose has a reputation and history in the industry. There are many well-known and respected companies available, and you can avoid any scams by choosing a reputable one instead of an unknown. 8. Only Choose Quality Bullion With A Stamp Showing Weight, Quality And Manufacturer If you want to avoid potential gold investment scams, make sure you choose a high quality gold like Credit Suisse or PAMP. These products carry the name and stamp of excellence, and are sought after by investors. 9. Buy in Small Amounts Initially To avoid large purchases of fake gold bullion, you should always make a small initial purchase. This allows you to become comfortable with the supplier and to assess the quality of the gold you are investing in. Do not place large orders until you know and trust a company or supplier completely. 10. Watch Out For Nonexistent Gold Gold investment scams can include mining shares and gold bullion which do not exist. When you invest in shares of a company or in gold that is purchased and stored for you, you may never see anything tangible to show your investment was actually made. After a little time the agent or broker disappears, and so does your investment capital.  (Aug 7, 2013 | post #1)

TANA Goldfields United Kingdom Marc Faber: The World Is a...

http://www.wikihow .com/TANA-Goldfiel ds-United-Kingdom- Marc-Faber:-the-Wo rld-Is-a-Mess%2C-b ut-Junior-Gold-Min ing-Stocks-Could-D ouble The world's economy is in tatters and safe havens are few and far between, says legendary contrarian Marc Faber. The banking crisis in Cyprus has shown that even bank deposits are not safe. The publisher of the Doom, Boom and Gloom newsletter, surveying the world from his perch in Hong Kong, discusses the impact of unemployment in Europe, the economic slowdown in China, asset bubbles and the turnaround prospects for precious metals miners. Faber also reveals his investment strategy for these volatile times in this interview with The Gold Report. The Gold Report: Marc, I recently interviewed James Turk who said that Europe is in a banking crisis, but that some countries are in worse shape than others. Are things on the continent as bad as they seem to be from the headlines in the U.S.? Marc Faber: Unemployment is high in both Europe and the U.S., particularly for young people. One reason for the high unemployment rate is that it is very difficult to find highly specialized workers for industry. Perhaps that's due to more university students studying non-user-friendly subjects, such as philosophy. The Western world is lacking in well-trained workers who can handle industrial machines that cost $10–20 million ($10–20M). But if I need a clerical assistant for financial services, I can find hundreds and hundreds of applicants. Swiss-born Marc Faber, who at age 24 earned his Ph.D. in economics magna ***** laude from the University of Zurich, has lived in Hong Kong nearly 40 years. He worked in New York, Zurich and Hong Kong for White Weld & Co., an investment bank historically managed by Boston Brahmins until its sale to Merrill Lynch in 1978. From 1978 to 1990, Faber served as managing director of Drexel Burnham Lambert (HK), setting up his own investment advisory and fund management firm, Marc Faber Ltd. in mid-1990. His widely read monthly investment newsletter Gloom Boom & Doom Report highlights unusual investment opportunities. Faber is also the author of several books, including Tomorrow's Gold: Asia's Age of Discovery (2002), which spent several weeks on Amazon's bestseller list and is being translated into Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai and German. He also contributes regularly to leading financial publications around the world. Much also has been written about Faber. Nury Vittachi, one of Asia's most popular writers and speakers, published Riding the Millennial Storm: Marc Faber's Path to Profit in the Financial Markets (1998). The Financial Times of London described him as "something of an icon" and Fortune called him a "congenital contrarian and shrewd Swiss investment advisor."  (Jun 4, 2013 | post #1)
