I am completely against someone going out and screwing old people, but I do not believe this is the case with these guys. Sure they make a killer profit on some of this stuff, but think about what would happen to this stuff if they did not buy it. The old person would probably die and it would be thrown away as garbage or mass auctioned at low prices. These guys are at least giving these people cash money which they can actually use. You also must think about the time and money that is needed to sell these items after they purchase them.

I could not have said it better.
They have a business to run, bills to pay.
I am not a picker but i buy gold and silver.
I know I pay a lot more than the local jewelry stores but I make a good profit. Am I bad too. I have bills to pay.

I know what it is like when an old timer dies and the family gets rid of things. I have actually seen (and bought) rolls of silver coins turned in to banks for face value by their kids. The bank can only pay the face value and then I reimburse the bank.
