Good evening. To be straightforward, this isn't adding up. Who is allegedly holding the gold?

Expert:  Brandon M. replied 8 months ago.

I ask because this may fit the pattern of a popular scam being run out of Africa right now. I need more information, but I would like to eliminate the possibility that you are the victim of a fraud.

Thank you. How much gold is involved?

Expert:  Brandon M. replied 8 months ago.

I ask because quantity may affect licensing requirements.

Thank you. Did you purchase the gold? If so, did you already pay the purchase price?

Expert:  Brandon M. replied 8 months ago.

Again, I ask because a purchase versus something like an inheritance or gift can affect the legal requirements.
