    Why aren't we reporting his ass to the police? Scum like that shouldn't be allowed on here!

    This is the xrf machine my buyer uses, not really sure if they call it xrf or what but they have two of them and he told me they cost around $20,000 each
    So the point i'm making is, even though it's quite an expensive one they still drill holes in my poured bars.
    And there's are always very tiny variations within depths but usually not enough to change value..

    I'm hoping this video starts at where the machine is, if not just skip to 8:45

    it looks like he had a fake and new it-why claim XRF analysis if otherwise? I am tipping he just wanted to pass it off and move on. I doubt he is a seller of fakes on all his sales. Not trying to stick up for him-knowing it is fake and selling it has destroyed his reputation and it was dumb/dick move. Another give away that he knew it was fake, was ignoring a request to see the side of the bar in a photo.
    I agree with the make quality photos post! Also if your gonna claim analysis-show it!
    Also it is a bloody good warning to everyone to be wary and look before you leap-if you don't know for sure-do some googling before you buzz-you might miss out while your busy but you will be better prepared next time.
    Everywhere there is money, there are sharks. The thing nobody is asking is-did he buy it from someone else on here? He said he will only refund of he gets his money back from the guy he bought it from.....so who sold it too him?

    lol, unlikely but he does have a point. I traded a bunch of generics with carloc for some 10oz lunars and my shiny was legit

    Well that is a new level of paranoia, even for me. I do not ever use any other name on the internet than m3sca1. My details can be cross referenced if you know how to google.
    Firstly- i am not stupid enough to trade in bars-too easily faked
    I came to this forum after buying F2F off ozcopper. Ask him if he thinks I am Carloc. FYI admins can get I.P. address information.
    Secondly-my name is m3sca1 aka Matt Lowe-i own a youtube channel under that name, my email is [email protected]
    i trade on ebay as m3sca1
    i rarely use gumtree but i am on there as Matt.
    as for a direct answer to your unfounded query-no i am not Carloc.
    I was calling it as i see it- he got a fake somewhere and clearly he knew that and trying to pass it off, so I put the question forward-did he buy it from someone else on here? How in your mind does that make you think I am him?
    The paranoid android in me asks -did bubblebobble2 sell Carloc the fake and using misdirection to make others not look that way!
    How does it feel?

    Did Golden Monkey return the fake bar back to Carloc? From what I understand that another person had bought a fake bar off Carloc and that matter was resolved. Really, the bar needs to be returned. I'm not convinced that Carloc did know that he had sent off a fake bar as some are suggesting. To simply say to refund the money without sending the bar is not good enough either.

    Reminds me of the OLD AUSSIE SAYING "having 2 Bob each-way". Which is very appropriate on this Caulfield Cup Day. (Down-under). _JLG.

    p.s. I love CAPS & bold - because it gets up the noses of a few of the pickerati*.

    Carlo has my word that I will return the fake gold bar after he has processed me a full refund!!

    The other bar was returned during a f2f meet after he was chased up i do not have the time or the inclination to do this f2f.

    Are you suggesting i post the bar before getting a full refund?

    Carlo also guaranteed that he had the bar XRF tested as good!!!! True or false?



    Cheers
    GM

    "Carlo has my word that I will return the fake gold bar after he has processed me a full refund!"

    Why would this (alleged) scammer want a fake gold bar back? so he can play this game again with someone else?

    Get the POLICE & FRAUD SQUAD involved and get this (ALLEGED) motherplucker locked up, end of story.
