I had heard of these guys a while back, and looked in to it. I really liked the idea of owning actually shares of gold (like the silver certificates the US reserve issued at one point) and of having an investment in something other than the federal reserve should we face a recession in the US... but the federal indictment scared me away. They were indicted for money laundering and that concerned me greatly. I didn't want to lose money because the company went to jail or something. To me, it'd be like working with the mafia.
