That Physical Gold You Thought You Owned? You Didn't

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Earlier today, the CFTC issued an order and charges against two Boca Raton companies, (Joseph Glenn Commodities LLC and JGCF LLC, and their owners Scott Newcom and Anthony Pulieri) which accused the abovementioned of engaging in illegal, fraudulent off-exchange financed transactions in precious metals with retail customers, and also ordered them to pay over $1 million in restitution payments. Superficially, it would have been any other run-off-the-mill CFTC wristslap against an entity that is deemed not TBTF, and thus systematically relevant, in the parlance of the DOJ (unlike the Jon Corzines of the world, who are perpetually absolved of all crimes - actual and alleged), if only it wasn't for one small clarification at the end of the body.

The relevant section is bolded below:

The CFTC Order finds that from July 2011 through June 2012, the Respondents solicited retail customers, generally by telephone or through Joseph Glenn’s website, to buy physical precious metals such as gold, silver, copper, platinum, or palladium in what are known as off-exchange leverage transactions. According to the Order, the customers paid the Respondents a portion of the purchase price for the metals, and Joseph Glenn and JGCF purportedly financed the remainder of the purchase price, while charging the customers interest on the amount they purportedly loaned to customers.

 

[T]he CFTC Order states that when Joseph Glenn and JGCF engaged in these illegal transactions they were acting as dealers for a metals merchant called Hunter Wise Commodities, LLC (Hunter Wise), which the CFTC charged with fraud and other violations in federal court in Florida on December 5, 2012 (see CFTC Press Release 6447-12). Hunter Wise was purportedly Joseph Glenn’s and JGCF’s source for the metal and the loans. As alleged in the CFTC Complaint against Hunter Wise and according to the CFTC Order in this case, however, neither Joseph Glenn, JGCF, nor Hunter Wise purchased or held metal on the customers’ behalf, or disbursed any funds to finance the remaining balance of the purchase price. The Order finds that the Respondents’ customers thus never owned, possessed, or received title to the physical commodities that they believed they purchased.

In other words: that physical gold that your trusted "held" on your behalf... they never really held it, and neither did you. But don't worry: all the gold "held" by various brokers professing physical possession and not to mention thousands of assorted paper gold ETFs is certainly there.

After all, where else can it possibly be (certainly not in the 5th subbasement of 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza housing the largest gold vault in the world)

Here is one satisfied customers testimonial.

"They called me up with some really hot story about how precious metals are the best investment I could make. They told me I would make a lot of money and they would be guarding my account to make sure I was protected. What these thieves didn't tell me was that out of the $100,000 I sent them they took over $35,000 for commissions right off the bat!"

I'm not too impressed with the premise of this article. Or rather maybe with the conclusions drawn in the numerous posts. The fact that a judge found that the victims didn't own the metals they thought they had, could, on the one hand, be used to draw conclusions about whether any other third-party gold holdings are really holdings or not, but, on the other hand, could also be used as the justification for finding the defendents guilty of criminal fraud.  (Which, rather pleasantly, is what they would deserve in a just world, not so easy to find recently or locally.)

Buying from reputable sources is highly recommended, but NOT SUFFICIENT. You need to TEST the metal to verify its intrinsic value. This ability to accurately verify its value is one of the main advantages of precious metals versus most intangible (promise/trust based) and even some tangible assets.

You are opening yourself up to all paper risk, without pizzaz of the stock of the day.

You also HELP perpetuate the manipulation of the REAL PM market.

Anyone who is holding "shares" in PM this or that is actually PART of the problem.

Those "shares" are fucking conjured up through some crazy ass scheme that takes longer to explain the legality of than to have it blow up when a light is shone upon it.

Paper fucks go play in every other leveraged to the gills phony HFT scam, and let the REAL exhange rate between conjured fiat and precious metals be found.

Provident has been within a week and so has APMEX( course for the extensive premiums you better get the delivery in 3 days).

Seriously?!?

"According to the Order, the customers paid the Respondents a portion of the purchase price for the metals, and Joseph Glenn and JGCF purportedly financed the remainder of the purchase price, while charging the customers interest on the amount they purportedly loaned to customers."

I'm awaiting a FedEx delivery of two kilograms of .999 gold bars from a desperate Nigerian Prince who needs to get it out of the country.  I wired him $10,000 for shipping and bribe money to cover upfront costs.  I get to keep one kilo for my efforts - he'll pick up the other when he gets out of the country himself.

What a maroon.  I have no intention of giving him his kilo of gold.  Once I take physical possession it's ALL MINE, sucker.

So watch out for scammers like me.  Don't be a chump.
