Gold-Traders featured on Radio 2’s Chris Evans show

On Monday 18th August 2008, Gold-Traders was featured in the business slot of the Chris Evans show on BBC Radio 2.

The feature focussed on how the credit crunch has led more people to turn-out their old and unwanted gold jewellery and convert it to cash.

Interviewed by Rebecca Pike (Foxy), Phil Williams of Gold-Traders (UK) Ltd stated:

“With the recent downturn in the economy, we’ve noticed quite an increase in the number of customers wanting to sell their gold. Anything from broken jewellery, wedding rings, sovereigns and even dental gold.

What’s important for anyone selling their gold is to shop around. By way of example, a typical high-street jewellery will probably offer around £2-3/g for their 9 carat scrap. However, due to the low operating overheads of an Internet business such as ourselves, we are able to offer significantly better rates.”

The interview also focussed on the environmental impact that gold mining can have and that recycling unwanted jewellery is not only green, it’s one of the few types of re-cycling that earns you money.

As a result of the feature, we have been inundated with enquiries and parcels of unwanted gold jewellery. Our telephone lines have stayed open well into the evening over the last couple of days and staff have been working extra hours to ensure all claims received are processed and paid on the day of receipt.

For a short time on Wednesday evening, the demand on our web server was so great, the Gold-Traders web site crashed. Our apologies go out to any customer trying to access the site at this time, we believe the issue has now been resolved.

Our thanks go out to all our new customers who listened to the radio feature and we hope that Gold-Traders has provided you with an impeccable service.

Gold-Traders Does Not Buy or Sell Gold Dust

Update September 2010

Someone using the name Kennedy John is sending out emails using a ymail.com account. They are claiming to represent Gold-Traders and attempting to secure payment of high value services using a stolen credit card.

Kennedy John does not work for Gold-Traders.

Please do not respond to any email from Kennedy John. We recommend you either send copies to us or report the email abuse to the mail provide (usualy ymail.com).

Gold-Traders (UK) Ltd is aware that an Internet fraudster is using our company name in an attempt to sell quantities of gold dust.

We are aware of at least two companies who have been approached by the scammer, using the name ‘Mr Innocent Paul‘. In both instances, the company’s own due diligence quickly confirmed the letter was a hoax.

If you are a member of the public wanting to sell gold to us, please do not be alarmed by this post. This hoax letter is targeting large companies in an attempt to engage in a business relationship.

Unfortunately, the crook has decided to use our company name.

Gold-Traders (UK) Ltd only purchases scrap gold and unwanted gold jewellery from the general public. We do not buy or sell and have never bought or sold ‘gold dust’ or unrefined ore.

We have decided to publish the hoax letter below. Doing so will allow Google and the other search engines to index it and thus assist other potential targets to this scam in identifying it as such.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss selling your unwanted gold, please do not hesitate in contacting us.

If you have received one of these scam e-mails, please let us know as it helps us keep track of these fraudsters.
