Educating the uninformed

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

Rolled 55k into a gold IRA , but they did not fully disclose in laymens terms that 24k would be deducted as commission. So how many of you would allow this to happen knowing that you were going to immediately loose 30plus percent of your investment? Waiting for your reply!

Getting Screwed!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

In 2011 I purchased nine oz. of gold from Lear, at spot price.

The Invoice showed nine $10.00 Liberty coins at $1513.00 . I agreed to this , as recorded by Lear, then sent them a check for the full amount. Several days later, I received the gold coins and put them in my safe, where they have resided since then. Recently, I decided to sell the coins back to Lear, and requested a quote.

I was shocked to find out that the nine coins were 1/2 oz., not the 1 oz. coins that I thought I purchased. I did not realize that a $10.00 Liberty coin was 1/2 oz. I suddenly realized that I had been scammed out of half of my investment.

This is what happens when you totally trust the company that you are dealing with, Lear Capital.

I haven't given up yet. I want to tell this to a judge.

I could not compliment Lear Capital enough.

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

In April I requested information online from Lear Capital regarding precious metals - primarily gold. In years past I was a General Securities Principal - so I know a thing or two about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, limited partnerships and so forth but had no knowledge of precious metals investing.

I spoke on the phone with Derek Martin, a Senior Account Executive with Lear Capital. I ended up purchasing some gold coins and setting up a self directed IRA funded by gold coins. Everything went exceptionally smooth and between Derek and Lear's IRA department everything was set up over a few days and my coins were on their way to me. The only glitch to the process was that the UPS driver delivered my coins to the wrong address and I actually saw them drive away.

I immediately called Derek who sprang into action to get my coins to me. Within a couple of hours the UPS driver retrieved my coins and called me and completed delivery of my gold. My coins are now securely in my safe and my IRA coins are safely deposited in the depository. I could not compliment Lear Capital enough.

Their spread was reasonable and service was impeccable. The 5-star rating I gave above says I would recommend to a friend. Well guess what? I have recommended Lear Capital and buying gold to several friends.

A great company to work with. -Greg

Grant De Vries: Debbie at Lear Capital went above and beyond to help make a difficult situation as painless as possible and help get the best pricing she could when transitioning our positions from a different provider that went out of business. Thank you Debbie and Lear Capital!

Call Will at Lear Capital, he looks out for us

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I have been investing in gold/silver for 10+ years. I have used different companies along the way.

I had a dilemma in choosing non-reportable silver bars. Recently, For the first time, I called for Lear Capital and Will Obi really took the time to break down the differences of reportable coins/bars vs the non-reportable coins/bars. I couldn't believe no one else had this information PLUS a solution!

Call Will at Lear Capital, he looks out for us, not his paycheck! -J Adams

Cal Popejoy was wonderful when it came to answering all of questions about my purchase of silver rounds. He was always there to receive my phone calls and text with immediate responses.

I like the way that Cal and Lear Capital handled my business.

They will have my business once I'm ready for my next purchase. Outstanding business and personnel...Thank you Lear Capital John H

Multiple transactions

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I am happy with the transaction and just waiting on the second to be delivered. I knew up front that this would take longer than previous deliveries due to the silver shortage.

Joe has been fantastic. When he was out sick during the last transaction, the two people standing in for him did great as well.

Pass along what a great job Joe is doing. I recommend Lear Capital to everyone I talk to on the topic Kurt B.

I have received 2 orders so far

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I have received 2 orders so far. The first order was shipped quickly, the second order not quickly.

I was dealing with Kris, a very nice person. Not pushy and answered questions. I had a time getting answers, but it was not Kris's fault. Their phone system appeared temperamental, but it all worked out.

I have recommended Kris to a friend of mine who is considering moving his retirement account to Lear. by Robert O.

I recently had the pleasure of interacting with Lear Capital that had exceptional customer service. From the moment I reached out to them, their representatives were friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to go above and beyond to ensure my satisfaction.

They took the time to listen to my concerns and provided prompt and effective solutions. What impressed me the most was their genuine desire to educate me on Precious Metals investments and their proactive approach in addressing any potential issues.

Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with this company and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a hassle-free experience with excellent customer service by Peter G. - Randolph H

Great help from David Juame

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I really like working with David Juame because he has been extremely professional and helpful. I am a first time investor in precious metals and feel there was a big learning curve....David spent the time to share his knowledge and insight and never made me feel uncomfortable or, quite honestly, like the 'newbie' that I am.

He has been patient and took the time to explain many details of the industry that I was not familiar with. And did this without arrogance or intimidation. He has been very personable --even thought we have not had a long relationship, I felt like he tried to know who I was---not just another client or phone call....I feel he is a genuinly nice person who likes to help people. Not once did he treat me like I was lesser.

He followed up exactly as he indicated and contacted me everytime he said that he would; notified me IN ADVANCE of my shipment so I could make arrangements to be home. At the same time, I have had a very different experience with another precious metals dealer--a well known company, but I am working with one of the (many) brokers within in it....and I felt completely the opposite after my engagement: like I was a real beginner with no knowlege or ability to learn. Intimidated and shamed by my lack of knowledge. This guy also treated me like just another phone call...his 'hurry up and get to the order' kind of style did not make me want to contact him with any questions or ---more importantly--another order.

I got only an email from him the day OF my delivery and had to scramble with schedules to ensure that I could receive. It was a very off-putting experience.

I have been in sales most of my life and the old adage, 'you do business with people you like' rings very true....When I choose to invest in more precious metals, I know who I will be contacting. by Susan G
