Cash4Gold - The Other (And Far More Hilarious) Side Of The Story

Tyler Durden's picture


By now, everyone has heard accusations that Cash4Gold is nothing but a predatory site, seeking to "steal" the gold of people in distress for a painfully low price. Often times these stories involve Glenn Beck in some capacity. Of course, there is always "the other side" to every story. Below we provide just one such "other" side. It just so happens that the side is about as funny as it gets.

Does this mean the Tibetan 14 carat gold nuggets I bought on Craigslist from the Nigerian princess might not be real?  Good thing I paid for them with Zimbabwe dollars.

LOL, so did this guy send 60 lbs of gold-painted rocks to Dollars4Gold?

Any way, do you guys want to know how we will be able to recognize the top in gold?  When there is a show on Discovery or TLC, called 'Gold Virgins'!

Check out our latest PsychoNews story: Funny Money, Manic Markets & Obsolete Media

Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont delivered an amazing speech in the Senate on December 2nd that was right on the money in regards to the problems America (and by extension, the world) faces.

To quote:

"There is a war going on, and I'm not referring to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan"

"Against the disappearing and shrinking middle class of this country."

"Their [billionaires/Oligarchy] greed has no end"

"[there seems to be] very little concern for the people if it gets in the way of accumulating more and more power"

"top 1% of all earners earn 23% of all the income in this country"

"Exxon made $19 billion last year and paid $0 in taxes.  They got a refund..."
(12 minutes into video)

Sounds like Senator Bernie Sanders has been reading PsychoNews!

Well dude, the bad news is that there is just such a program starting on one of those like channels called something along the lines of "Alaska Gold" where a bunch of unemployed "patriots" head forth into the frozen reaches of Alaska in search of God's own shiny money. 

The most amazing part about it is the number of firearms per individual might well exceed  the collective IQ of the intrepid bunch, or so's been speculated upon.

LOL, it sounds like it just debuted.  Awesome!  If these guys go bankrupt even with gold at $1600 it won't have quite the same effect as Property Virgins did.  If they do really well, though, from their amateur mining exploits then we will see.

The show sounds like it will only appeal to a select few (rednecks?), and doesn't seem to address the reasons behind 'gold fever' at all.

Just like if we said, if Jim Cramer recommends going all-in on gold its time to get out, tomorrow Jim Cramer will come out and tell people to go all-in on gold, hahaha!

Or being a Goldmanite in a prior life to which he will no longer admit, he may hedge his bet and merely suggest watching "Alaska Gold".


You know the speil. What with nuggets soon to be at $1650 per ounce and if you starve and freeze your nuts off with an all in cost of $227/oz, you too could do an IPO, etc.....

I caught the first episode of this show.  It was remarkable.

The fellas must have had quite a grubstake since they took along some fancy equipment.

Problems with a bridge that could not take the 100K lb load, but the load was fine on a really back roads bridge?  Some discrepancy there...

The "claim" supposedly in a backwoodsy area was awfully easy to get to with the entire entourage and tons of equipment.

These guys should put on quite a show!

First has to come the show "Flip this Nugget"...  Had to laugh at your post though.  The memories of watching in horror at those shows about flipping houses was so obvious in retrospect it is almost tragic.  Those were disgusting shows... knowing the real economic effect of making money that way.


On a more serious note, I don't J6P is quite going towards PM's yet.  And when he does, it might actually be the real deal for once instead of the typical lamb to the slaughter.  Just thinking....  the more this crap goes on, the more I am leaning out of the deflationary camp into the hyperinflationary camp.

Thing is that the rep for Cash4Gold seems to have an excellent sense of humor. And he seems to be engaged in a lighthearted back and forth with the joker despite the cease and desist talk. The fact that Cash4Gold quoted the funniest parts of the jokers requests and takes an almost whimsical tone in response actually gives me some respect for at least one fellow in their offices.

That's assuming it's really from Cash4Gold, though.

Takes all kinds.  Still, you've got to be a special breed of stupid to send your valuable gold away via an express pack to complete strangers in hopes they will be kind enough and honest enough to send you back what it was worth in dollars, all the while not even knowing what it's worth to know if you were ripped off.... LOL.   As I said, takes all kinds.

My favorite COPS episode ever was one from Miami, where a radio car was dispatched to a convenience store to deal with a "man causing a disturbance."

The cops met up with a middle-aged gentleman who somewhat resembled Nick Nolte.  After a few minutes discussion, he confided to one of the officers that he had gotten high that evening--smoking crack with a few other gentlemen he'd met.  He had given them his car keys because they were going to go somewhere and pick up more crack and return so they could all smoke it together.  He wasn't permitted to go with them because he might spook their supplier.

I learned a very important lesson watching that program.  Probably the most valuable thing I've ever learned from the teevee.

When you're cracked out with a bunch of strangers, don't give them your car keys.

Maybe all Zero Hedge folks should "send in rocks" to Cash4Gold, claiming "there is gold in them rocks!".  This would hurt their "free, postage paid envelopes" approach to marketing.  If people had to ship their gold on their own dime, it would avoid them from being scammed.

Max is busy with his "buy silver, kill JPM".  Guy needs to stay focused.  Too many moving balls ends up with failure.  Max is a guy after all, and multi-tasking may be too much for him...  

Just thinking that some places, such as Cash4Gold, are minor parasites to society.  They prey on the week and gullible.  If they think they can screw over the little people with their business model, we should use their business model against them.  Their pre-paid envelopes have to be a significant cost to them.  If sufficient people send in "heavy" junk to them, we get 2 benefits:

1) US Postal Service can hopefully one day become profitable and not require further bailouts.

2) The less money they make, the less they can afford to advertise... and suck in more and more people.

I wonder if the quadriplegic Singapore hooker had any teeth. Maybe I'll write the CFTC a few letters of support for Mr. Haberny, and see if I get an equally funny response.

LOL!!!! That is hilarious!!! I remember a few years ago, a guy wrote a funny article about sending them gold spray painted stuff. He even spray painted some macaroni gold and sent it. They sent him a check for about a dollar or something. It was a very good read.

I am just waiting for someone to take the brass balls off a certain establishment and ship them after plating the ding dongs with gold.


The size of the signature on the bottom shows loss of temper and exceeding thin patience. Maybe in the future they can reformat the form letter printers to accomodate very angry signers on a extra long sheet of paper.

Reminds me of "Extra Nutty [Letters from a Nut]" books by Ted Nancy.


But what I find disheartening is the proliferation of "We Buy Gold" store fronts that are popping up everywhere. What I see is that older business and restaurants are failing and many of those vacant retail spaces are being leased to corporate owned pawn shops and gold buyers which are arguably predatory-by-nature establishments.

My uncle manages for one of the chains that have set up in the malls. Last time I saw him, he said that he can pay up to 95% of spot.

I'm guessing competition is increasing.

So why could Gold be a Bubble? 1) Rapid price run-up. Prices never run up forever; they always come back to stable levels. Gold prices are up almost 500 percent since 2000 and almost 1300 percent since the mid-70s. At some point they have to come back down. When that will happen is still in question, but they will stabilize at some point. And stabilization may involve a quick plunge in prices. 2) “We Buy Gold” everywhere! In the past two years, there have been more “sell your gold” commercials and “we buy gold” stores than ever before. It seems as if everywhere I go or look I see some kind of reference to gold. The prevalence of these stores and commercials not only points to market saturation, but also points to the massive spotlight that has been shining on Gold. 3) EXTREME speculation. A bubble requires investors to be so absolutely certain that prices will continue to rise that they actually neglect to protect themselves from the risks involved. By asking “How high is Gold heading?” instead of “Why is Gold going up?” or “Can Gold go higher?” we’re actually ignoring the downside involved, which can lead to severe panic if Gold actually does start to drop. Here is why extreme speculation is here and very dangerous:
a. Common investors can now buy gold. With the introduction of the Gold ETF (GLD), any person who wants to buy gold can easily do so by simply buying the GLD. Before 2004 the only way to buy gold was to buy the actual thing. If gold is available to everyone, and becomes the hot new commodity, a bubble is definitely possible. b. No hedging by the mining companies. In order to protect their businesses from a sudden decline in Gold prices, mining companies have generally hedged themselves by owning some put options or other forms of derivatives that would limit their losses in case of such declines. And the higher the price of gold, the more dangerous the price decline is for the miners. But because most of the miners think that gold prices are going to continue rising, they have recently stopped hedging themselves. At a time when protection is actually the most important in the history of their businesses, they’ve joined the gold craze and ceased to hedge. This has to be one of the most counter-intuitive moves I’ve ever seen. Hedges are protections “just in case” prices go down; miners seem to have forgetten that “just in case” is a small bet compared to the potential devastation they may be setting themselves up for.
4) Gold isn’t enough! With Gold prices soaring, investors have looked for new ways to take advantage of the run-up. Not only have investors run the price of gold (GLD) to high levels, but they have found ways to leverage their positions and even increase speculation in related metals. First, Gold itself was enough (GLD). Then, when investors wanted increased returns if gold went up, they bet on the gold miners through the Gold Miners' GDX ETF; the GDX moves in correlation to GLD, but with a higher beta (in essence, if GLD goes up GDX should move proportionally higher). Now it seems even the regular miners aren’t enough! Investors are now going even further downstream, betting on the junior miners (GDXJ). The junior miners are not only a third derivative bet (Gold-Gold miners-junior miners), but they also signal the extreme belief investors have that prices will continue higher. And if a third-derivative play in Gold wasn’t enough, investors have speculated in the entire precious metals sector. Since Gold is going higher, they say, so should the prices of related metals. And to satisfy investors’ insatiable demand for these metals, the “Glitter” ETF (GLTR), composed of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium investments, was introduced on October 22nd. And if metals weren’t enough, investors have also chased “Rare-Earth” resources through companies such as Rare-Earth-Elements (REE) and Molycorp (MCP). Not only did Molycorp CEO, Mark Smiths, recently “mistakenly” call the Rare-Earth craze a “BUBBLE” (“I don’t think short-term prices in rare earth (minerals) are prices people ought to be counting on…they are really spiked right now and there may be a bubble occurring because of all of the news and the frenzy.”), but the fact that REE and MCP are up about 500 percent and 300 percent respectively since the summer should be enough of a warning.
5) Gold Vending Machines. It wasn’t enough for Gold to be bought at jewelry stores or through distributors directly. They have now built vending machines from which to buy Gold! A German company, Gold-To-Go, has began setting up vending machines around the world in order to attract the average investor. Buying Gold coins and bars from a vending machine? I hear “BUBBLE”! 6) Inflation or Deflation? Gold prices have increased due to fears over currency and economic growth. But buyers of Gold have bought Gold both due to fears of deflation and due to the potential for inflation. In other words, some bought Gold because they expect deflation and some bought it because they expect inflation – but one of the two is wrong! We can’t have both deflation and inflation; therefore, a considerable number of investors are wrong and have pushed the price of Gold up farther than is warranted. 7) Front Page of the Wall Street Journal. When a story makes the front page of a widely-circulated newspaper or magazine, it signals widespread recognition of that story or theme. Since heavily-distributed newspapers and magazines tend to reflect the widespread sentiment of its readers and the general population, a front-page headline signals the acceptance of that idea as consensus. It’s been a fairly long-standing negative omen for the market when major cover stories marvel at the wondrous bull-market run-ups and, inversely, a positive omen for the market when cover stories mourn the death of markets. That said, positive cover stories regarding investment themes are bad omens, signaling an upcoming pause or correction, if not an end to that theme. Gold made just such an appearance on September 29, 2010 on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, in an article titled “Gold Vaults to New High.” If a front page spot is a signal of widespread acceptance and a warning of an upcoming correction, the Gold Bubble is alive, but probably not so well.

If Gold prices fail to close at new highs within the next few days, expect this to be a short-term peak if not the long-term top.

Article written on Nov. 10th, 2010.  Graph shows gold at about $1,350.

Gold now at $1,419.

I guess the "new highs" have been met.

Now what?
