    Hey all

    I just came across this website advertised through gumtree offering very cheap silver bullion. The website was only created a few weeks ago and it appears to be registered in Canada?

    I do not know for sure this is a scam but something about seems suss.

    Here is the website: https://ansbullion.com/
    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Ansbullion/

    Does anyone know how to work if ANS Bullion is legit or not?

    Cheers
    Andrew

    Would be very wary, advertising silver for well below spot. Good old saying, if it sounds too good to be true ......!

    100oz silver for only $2060, when spot is $22.84 at time of this post, is a big red flag. Their Instagram is just generic posts too. I’d stay well away.

    Yes, if the quoted prices are in Australian dollars then be very suspicious.
    If they are in Canadian dollars, then would make sense.

    • Web site provides a phone number in QLD.
    • FB page says they are a pawn shop in Melbourne.
    • There is no ABN or ACN listing for a ANS Bullion.

    An advert that was on Gumtree says they are in Hobart o_O

    Another saying Sydney

    One saying Brisbane

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...lient=firefox-b-d&hl=en&gl=au&strip=1&vwsrc=0

    Highly suspect...

    People don't stop and take the time to think things through. Why would anyone sell something bellow it's market value when you can sell easily to any silver dealer?

    That reminds me of a video I watched where the guy purchased a mystery lot on ebay that was promised to contain 90$ worth of silver for 30$.... why would anyone ever do that sell?
