How secure is your gold

Post by cruiser1 on Sun 11 Oct 2015, 9:16 am

This poor bloke has just lost his last few years worth of nuggets from some low life.I think its a reminder to think about securing your nuggies in a safe spot.

Yep.Baseball bat to the knee-caps and off with the hands.But seriously the less you tell people of your hordes the better I think.
Hopefully he will be caught and the gold returned.

Too much gold to keep at home, but if you are going to, have security cameras and a vault, more than a 120 grand is a hell of a lot to lose. I know what it's like to lose gold (small pieces, accidently dropped in the creek, or see it go over the pan, never to see again) Oh, if any one finds a gold bottle with a piece of gold in it washed up on the beach, my son accidently dropped in the swollen river, we never found it, never know some one might be lucky, or it will go to the bottom of the ocean.

One of the biggest mistakes that you can make when it comes to gold is to tell anybody at all about it, and more particularly where you keep it, I have heard many stories of people being robbed but I cant say that I am at all surprised.

I have seen people openly display large quantities of gold nuggets for all to see strangers and all, and one old bloke openly saying he had about 30 ounces of nuggets and about thirty grand in cash stashed in his caravan, its a sad fact that this is what often leads to you getting robbed.

In this day and age there are people out there who look for these types of opportunities and apart from losing your gold you can possibly be hurt in the process if you are there when they decide to try and get it.

Best bet is to keep it to yourself, hide it well or the safer thing to do is sell it and spend the cash on more toys, beer, and useful stuff.

You're right au fever, it is the biggest mistake to display to strangers, I have shown gold to family or friend that I know well, but only shown pics to strangers, and when asked if I still have the gold, the answer always is "No, been sold" even if I still have the gold, they don't know any different, and there's no proof that it is still in my possession. Always pays to be safe, you never know what, or who strangers are, and funnily enough gold is like a magnet.
