Bulletin 2016-2148

A JVC member has reported that individuals are travelling around Southern Ontario offering Gold Bars for sale. These bars look like the real thing. When the JVC member requested permission to open the package to test the bars the subject refused and left the store. It was later learned another jeweller did buy the bars and when they were checked later they were found to be fake. It is recommended that you do not buy gold bars without checking the authenticity of the gold.
