Word of warning. Not sure if all advertisers are equal but…During my dads declining years, he fell for that “invest in gold” trick and once those “gold” companies got his address he was bombarded with “deals”. He bought coins, bullion, “golden” items, mint, proof sets, you name it. He spent every dime they had falling for the “smart investment” lines and now my mom is sitting with piles of this stuff. I’m afraid its mostly worthless although some might be authentic. Where do you get rid of “gold” (or “goldEN”) coins, etc?? Is there taxes on the sale of such or not if it turns into a capital loss?
I just saw Judge Napolitano pitching Lear Capital so I googled LC. BB shows Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2022! and has so many complaints for bait and switches among other things, especially preying on elders (ah hem). I’m sad these scammers can still exist and why oh why seemingly respectable people tout them.
And you have the famous Actors or Sports Stars sporting the reverse mortgages. Steve Garvey doing a reverse mortgage commercial telling us his parents got one. Why on earth would his parents need one with all the money Garvey has made.
