A friend of mine called US Goldbuyers yesterday and they said they were no longer accepting gold for the time being. Has anyone else been told this?

To IDODIS:
There is an answer to your question a few pages back, I'm sorry I don't remember exactly what it is though. It doesn't seem like anyone from Dis Boards that has sent a package there had it rejected or sent back though.

I also wanted to add to my previous post and say that I haven't yet asked about sending my silver ware. If I decide to sell it, I'll call then and ask if they take silver ware.

From what Ive read, if you already had the fedex packaging materials from USGB they are taking it whenever you send it. I think that right now they are not answering the phones (automated message) and therefore you can not talk to anyone about getting the materials. So you have to wait.

If you use goldfellow, you can print the fedex form right from their site and sent it in.

Yup...I was told to hold on to it until Friday even after I'd downloaded the papers...in the interim I decided to go with goldfellow.

I'm getting nervous!!!

I read that a pp on page 54 got her call last night and I still haven't received mine yet (our packages were delivered on the same day).

I am just so anxious to hear the offer already!! I think about it all the time!! I have a gram scale at home and I figured that I should be getting somewhere around $1800. But what will they really offer? I think I would accept as low as $1500. But what if they offer lower than that? (I told you I think about it All the time!!!) I just want to get the call already. The waiting is killing me very slowly!!

Okay...I'm done freaking out for the moment! Thanks for listening!

I can see why you are freaking out!!! That is a sizeable amount of money . Hang in there you will be in no time.

No sentimental ties or majorly valuable stuff, just knew I wouldn't get what I paid for. Finally decided, whenever you sell something you don't want or need anymore you never get what you paid. I packaged up 3 small rings, 2 were 10 k and one 14 k, 2 short very thin chains, 14 k, 5 small pendants or charms, most likely 10k, 3 silver necklaces, silver class ring, 3 one ounce fine silver dollards for weight, not dollar value, one 1890 silver dollar for dollar value not weight (called a coin dealer ahead of time and because the mint wasn't rare it was worth about 12.00) and a bar of silver made to look like a 100 dollar bill (someone won this and didnt want it and gave it to me, it was pretty heavy). Called fedex monday and sent to USGB, they rec'd it tues. at 3:00 and called me tonight at 7:30. Offered 259.00 total (101.00 for gold and 158.00 for silver) I took it. I was thinking I would get around 165.00 so I was happy. They were fine to work with and I was surprised I was called in 2 days. I may send some real silver ware that someone gave me that I've never used in 12 years. All of it would be pretty heavy. Heavier then the silver I sent this time and then I can free up a drawer it's sitting in.

Wow, thats fast! I think I will stick to my decision to ask for a check, it is so tempting to take paypal but it doesn't sound any faster anyway!
Thanks!

Oh..USGB signed for my package exactly 48 hours ago...still waiting for the call!

OK!!! After watching this thread since it was only 10 pages long (!!) I've decided to jump into the mix!

I called USGB today and followed their email instructions on FedExing to them. The FedEx man came by only about an hour after I requested my pickup. I'M SO EXCITED!!! They told me it would be more than 24-48 hours to hear back but I'm okay with that as long as I'm told upfront what to expect. They said they're getting 5000 shipments per day!

I sent in almost 2 grams of gold (14 and 18K, mostly 18K) according to my rinky-dink postal scale. I'm thinking that might bring in $1200?? I can't wait to hear what their offer is!
