    Cash4Gold will be featured during the Super Bowl

    Man, I can't wait...

    In the Cash4Gold ad, Ed McMahon and MC Hammer, two celebrities who've had very public real-life financial reversals, send in items that get more outrageous as the ad goes on.

    really must be ripping people off since they forked over 3 mill for a 30 sec slot


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    One of the first Google results for "cash4gold review:"

    I mailed nearly $800.00 worth of gold and silver and got $19.00 back.

    Re: Cash4Gold will be featured during the Super Bowl

    Give this a read:

    Cash 4 Gold would like to melt down and recast their reputation

    That pretty well explains their business practices, and is consistent with the other posts above.

    If they can afford an ad, they are doing a lot better than I would have expected, and can probably afford to polish the commercial a little.

    Re: Cash4Gold will be featured during the Super Bowl

    The whole process confounds me.

    "So all I have to do is put my valuebles in an easily identifiable envelope and drop it in a mailbox. Then after the objects are in your possession, you'll tell me how much they're worth?"

    What's worse; the fact that someone dreamed up that business model, or that people are rewarding and encouraging it?
