Provident Metals is operated by 30 years old owner, Joe Merrick with PO BOX address in Texas.

Their price quote is higher than market price, and does not reflect market price reflections which they refuse to explain.

You will see a lot of complaints against this company that it is actually scamming.

1. they charge false market loss fees when there is no market loss (never purchased)
2. they also charge false market loss ADMIN fees.
3. timing is great. they wait several months until gold price goes down, then demand/extort market loss/admin charges.
4. gold price fluctuate. their policy is to keep gains, but customer pays losses. so they wait several months to see gold price drops, then demand false market losses.

Someone needs to investigate these individuals and company with po box.

Plus, how many Jeremy Dennys do you think there are??? This Annga is a real retard!

I met Mr. Denny in person at an ANA sponsored event a few years back, that IS NOT him. This entire post is nonsense. Most of the time people who have to pay market loss charges are trying to back out of an order because the precious metal they bought went down in value and they're trying to hang the loss on the dealer. I have a strong feeling that YOU are the scammer "annga".

Wait a minute... Maybe your TOTALLY CONFUSED, (which you are) and maybe you are just upset for some reason (which you are)... I met both Jeremy and Joseph at a coin show in Grapevine, TX, and they look nothing like the pictures you provided... Maybe your trying to take out "your issues" on innocent people (which you are). I'm sorry, but shame on you for trying to hurt a great company and good men.

6 Things a P.O. Box Can Do
When it comes to postal service, I really lucked out. The nearest post office is less than half a mile away. Every afternoon, when I reach the point in my day where staring at the computer screen any more is impossible, I walk over to the post office and collect my mail from my P.O. box.

As far as tools for freelancers go, I think a P.O. box is often overlooked: they’re useful and can even solve a few problems particularly for freelancers.

1. The Problem of Professionalism
It’s all well and good to work out of your home — or the nearest coffee shop — but there are just some clients that will see such an address and think that it automatically makes you unprofessional. Using a P.O. box is a fast way to avoid that discussion. Even large businesses use P.O. boxes as an easy way to manage mail, so seeing one listed as your address won’t bother even the snobbiest of clients. You can even choose an address in a different neighborhood if you feel that will up your professionalism even more.
And for those coffee shop-dwelling freelancers, it’s much easier to set up a P.O. box than trying to convince the postman to deliver your mail to your ‘place of business.’

2. Keeping Your Money Safe
I’ve lived in neighborhoods where it was crucial to get the mail out of the mailbox immediately. If I didn’t, I couldn’t be sure that I’d actually get all of my mail — and that includes the checks paying for my freelance work. And as incidents of identity theft have gone up, it’s not just checks that I worry about. Between contracts and tax forms, so much personal information passes through my mail box that I feel safest when no one without the right key can touch it. You might work primarily with online payments and contracts, but everyone runs into the occasional client who wants to handle details via post.

3. Protecting Your Packages
The same problems with receiving your mail are only intensified when it comes packages. With a P.O. box, the post office will just hold any packages that come your way (although they won’t accept packages for you from other carriers). With one simple step, you can eliminate the chance that the postman will just drop a box on your front step, out where anyone can grab it. You also don’t have to worry about having to sign for anything in your mail: if the post office needs confirmation on a certified letter or package, they’ll get you to sign while you’re picking up the rest of your mail.

4. Concealing Your Personal Address
I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want to hand out my home address to every potential client I find online. Considering how easy it is for an email containing a snail mail address to get passed around, I think it’s a pretty reasonable precaution to give out the address of my P.O. box, rather than my home. I haven’t had a problem yet, but I don’t particularly want to, either.

5. Eliminating changes of address
If you find that your home address is less than stable — maybe you move apartments every so often, maybe you take extended trips — a P.O. box can guarantee that you don’t have to try to update your contact information with each of your clients every time you move. And if you’re on the go regularly, you don’t have to worry about arranging for someone to pick up your mail — just let the post office know that you’ll be gone and they’ll just keep stacking the envelopes in your box.

OK I talked to Joe again and he will consider giving you the $119 market loss if you will allow him to explain Provident's policy. He understands you might be frustrated if you somehow missed it, and that is the only reason he is considering it. What time are you free to talk to him?

Josh Merrick

Well, I talked to him and I think he is going to be sending you the $119. The only thing is he wants to explain what happened over the phone. Is that possible?

provident metals actually charged
1. market loss
2. market loss admin charge

several months after the transaction, when the gold market dropped significantly.

they never mentioned of market loss nor market loss admin charges prior to this.

they still refused to provide whether they actually purchased gold coins. one guy said market loss and market loss charges are for "putting BACK" to their inventories.

confirming they never purchased gold coins, therefore cannot have market loss nor market loss admin charges.
