    Had Carlo try to buy from me on gumtree, told him to shove it. He’s still lurking around if anyone is wondering.

    Wow I've just read this entire thread after searching for 'Perth Mint Gold certicards' because I wanted to buy some.

    This whole conversation really highlights some important things.
    1. Trust is always an issue in the world, and as bad as it is that we cant trust the words coming out of some peoples mouths, and that really is a world issue that we cant fix.
    2. This community is freaking amazing, I just read through countless messages of support and advice from the members of this community, so good on them.

    Sorry for bringing this thread up again, but I just have to ask, @Golden Monkey, was this resolved for you?!? Did you get a refund, did Carlos get arrested, how were the police in all this! Its just driving me crazy not knowing what the outcome of this surreal event was, even if it was 3 years ago.

    WoW!!

    Just finished reading the whole saga and glad that Golden Monkey finally got his money back.
    Hope the fake bar was destroyed.
    An important education for me.

    Cheers Markco2

    Hey guys, sorry to join in so late on this but just wanted to give my experience as I’ve been through this a few months ago.
    I purchased a number of certicards over the last few years, it seems even with genuine PM bars, the Kangaroo will overlap and bleed into the boarder/edge of the bar.
    I was under the impression this is a sign of a fake but took my bars to Bullion Now who tested them for me and showed me a fresh box of certicards that are all the same.

    I would say poor quality from PM but nonetheless it’s not a clear sign as to being genuine or not.

    Don't forget bloody Perth Mint changed the serial font recently too to add to the confusion.
    (Went from a dot type font to solid.)

    I found these two photos. I had photos of a bunch of variations Bullion Now had but can’t find them now.

    That’s right, I’ve had them all tested at Bullion Now.
    the concern was the kangaroo print on the back being over the boarder and the font of the serial.
