I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I heard that the government requires metals dealers to foward information to Uncle Sam on the people who are purchasing metals and just how much the are buying. Needless to say, I'd rather not be buying from a dealer that is fowarding this information to the government. I think it is possible that they'll try to seize these assets in the troubled times ahead. So I'm wondering if anyone knows any metals dealers that work below the radar so to speak. Thanks

Sure and we are all going to openly discuss activities that you think may be illegal and improper on an open internet forum.

Can you be any more stupid?

That is a sincere question -- not an insult.

a PM would be okay. I'm actually not even entirely sure that it is true that metals dealers have to let the feds know who is buying metals and how much they are buying. It sure would be great to have a phoney SS # to conduct this kind of business with. Pull an Andy Dufrense so to speak.
