    Fun Cash4Gold News Story

    Somebody claiming that they bribed him to take down his critical blog post about the company behind my favorite commercials:

    Blogger: Cash4Gold tried to 'bribe' me - The Red Tape Chronicles - MSNBC.com

    Not really much there, but it came across my screen, and, you know, I just had to pass it on.

    How could anyone possibly think they are not getting screwed at a place like this?

    But how could they afford that fancy commercial if they weren't legit? And how could they afford to buy all that gold?

    How does someone think they can barter with them once the gold is already sent in? That seems like a bad bargaining position.

    A half million transactions? That blows my mind.

    One of my wife's co-workers sent in a bunch of necklaces, a couple wore-down rings and very nice bracelet from a former relationship...and she got a whopping $12!!!!

    Apparently Americans will do just about anything if you put it in a commercial.

    1) They buy those stupid Snuggie thingies

    2) They keep buying crap from guys like Billy Mays and that idiot ShamWow guy.

    3) Send gold jewlry through the MAIL to a COMPANY THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF, that they TRUST will mail them a fair amount back.
