Independent Living is a newsletter put out by Lee Bellinger and he sells gold and silver bullion. I got a direct mailer today from Independent Living bullion announcing a sale. This mailer was a thick card stock flyer that wasn't in an envelope, just the card. There were huge pictures of gold and silver bullion on the flyer that helped announce the sale.
Am I being paranoid thinking that this is a horrible idea on their part? Anybody can see my name and address on the flyer and assume that I have gold and silver at my house! What were they thinking?!?
I'm seeing Google ads for these people. They are promoting a kilo silver coin giveaway for people who sign up for their newsletters:
I did a search to see if these cats are reputable and this thread was in the top ten results for the business name. Not sure what that means. Have these guys been around very long?
They are reputable. They publish a series of newsletters but decided to open a bullion dealership as well.
It's on the up and up
I see the ad too, and that approach alone (FREE shit..click here to win) is way too cheesy for me to consider using them. As far as the card goes, I would be quite unhappy for the exact reason you point out.
