Well, it got your attention. I guess newspaper print ads can still work, at least on some level.

But to be serious, isn't this just more tangible evidence that papers are desperate to get print ad dollars, to the point where they'll bend supposedly previously more stringent parameters for acceptable ads?

You may have noticed the WSJ has done more and more of this sort of thing in recent years -- special ad sections promoting business investment in exotic (read: cheap) Asian or Eastern European countries, etc. This one, is far more garish than other more subtle supplements I've seen in the past. In fact, I think I've seen the same ad section in my hometown tab.

All true Kate. I guess I'm still steamed that they have an ad review process and one of our HD ads got rejected but this piece of crap was allowed to run. Yes, newspapers are becoming increasingly desperate and once more folks like us infiltrate marketing ranks, we can stop spending money on this ineffective medium. One caveat, it is useful for local advertisers in their local paper, for now.

I am in violent agreement with you, Eric. I have been complaining about their ads in my coin collecting blog for months, and even called them up one time to give them a piece of my mind (they were not impressed).

Les - loved your blog. Good luck with your crusade - it is a righteous one.

I am one gullible customer that fell for the ad and purchased online about a month ago. Never received anything at all. Sent them email inquiring and never got response. My next step is to file complaint with BBBonline. Who are these people anyway? Obviously a fraud making business of sorts.

According to the comment from Lee, you can actually call them and find out, but personally I'd be worried about your purchase. I haven't personally witnessed any fraud sales, but I think you can see what I thought of their ads. Pat, let me know how you make out and if you want, feel free to email me the results of your inquiries and I'll be happy to post here.

Good luck,

Eric

DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE. This is a scam. It's near-impossible to reach anyone to cancel the "subscription." I FINALLY did (and had my money refunded). But not with any of their published numbers. Here are some other numbers to try:

You have a very nice coins blog.
You're very keen in details. My site is up already coin collecting hope you will check my coins directory site, it's nice I guarantee.

In fact, hiring big is Slide’ s plan, and not the first time for its executives— PayPal veterans like Rabois, co- founder Max Levchin, and others. PayPal was able to hire plenty of top engineers in 2000 and 2001: People who were out of work after the dot- com bubble burst. It could afford to do this because it had raised more than 225 million in previous years, including a 100 million round that closed just days before technology stocks began taking a nose- dive in April of 2000. Even though PayPal continued...

i bought these about 2 hours ago. when i got home, i found this site and i called to cancel but the rep says i had to call 866-282-6587 but they were closed. i called my credit card co up to see if it has been charged..to my surprise, it has not been charged so i cancelled my card. hopefully nothing is going to go through and im going to follow up with the cancellation tomorrow morning. thanks for the info everyone.

In your opinion, what's the best movie ever created?

Just saw the ad in BusinessWeek. Besides nothing being free, notice the gold ingot shaped boxes the coins are packed in? They state 425 grams. Yep. That's how much these no-gold-content coins weigh.

These standard presidential $1 coins are all avalable from the US Mint's online store for a lot less money, minus the pretty ingot box:

Look what I found from 2 years ago:

Thank you so much for this information. I was almost a victim and my intuition said check out the internet.

I actually read the ad in the readers digest. You would think they would be more responsible. Its all about commercial ad money. Sad but true.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. You may have saved a lot of people a lot of grief.
