Press Release on CNN Visit

Cash4Gold today put out the following press release calling attention to a recent story on the company done by CNN. CNN, which bills itself as "The Most Trusted Name in News," recently visited the Cash4Gold Headquarters, interviewing Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson.



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CNN Goes Behind the Scenes at Cash4Gold’s State-of-the-Art, High-Security Processing Center

Pompano Beach, Fla. – March 29, 2010 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the trusted industry leader in mail-in gold buying, recently invited cable news giant CNN into its cutting-edge South Florida headquarters. CNN cameras were the first to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the new Cash4Gold facility that opened in 2009.

CNNMoney.com posted an inside look at the Cash4Gold facility following the channel’s recent visit. The video, seen here, offers a step-by-step snapshot of what happens when a customer’s Jewelry Return Pack arrives at the Cash4Gold processing facility.

In the video, the CNN reporter and camera crew tour Cash4Gold headquarters with CEO Jeff Aronson, who discusses what happens when the company receives a Jewelry Return Pack in the mail. The company runs through a series of security checks before the package proceeds to the Cash4Gold testing and processing departments for evaluation.

Cash4Gold uses three different methods to test the purity of gold: electronic testing, scratch testing and x-ray fluorescence testing. After each item is appraised based on its melt value, a check is cut for the customer. Melt value refers to the value of actual precious metals included in an item and does not account for the decorative, historic or sentimental value.

Once the customer receives the Cash4Gold check, he/she has 12 days from the date on the check to decide if he/she wants to accept the offer or to have the items sent back with the postage and insurance paid. Over 90% of Cash4Gold customers accept the valuation of their items and proceed to cash the check.

During this 12 day holding period, the items are housed in Cash4Gold’s vault. Aronson explains that the highly-secure vault sits atop over 20,000 pounds of steel, is surrounded by 16-inch thick walls and protected by a multi-layered security system. If the customer accepts the check, Cash4Gold delivers the items to its in-house melt room where the jewelry is melted down in furnaces that reach 1800 degrees before being poured into large gold bars.

As part of the tour, the CNN reporter spoke with Cash4Gold employees that work in each of the departments that were featured. The CNNMoney.com video gives consumers a sense of what goes on each day at Cash4Gold’s facility, including the evaluation, processing and melting methods at Cash4Gold. The company, which has expanded into Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Canada and the U.K., is nearing the 1 million transactions mark.

Olympic Gold Medalist Asked About Cash4Gold

Cash4Gold was the topic of conversation during an episode of the popular entertainment television show TMZ. The crew ran into Olympic bobsled gold-medalist Steve Holcomb outside of a popular Los Angeles restaurant. Holcomb showed off his gold medal from the Vancouver Olympics.

While taking a look at the medal, the reporter asked if Holcomb would consider sending the medal to Cash4Gold. Of course, he was not going to send in his prized medal to the mail-in gold buyer for cash since the item has a great sentimental value and represents years of hard work.

Cash4Gold
pays for items based on melt value, which refers to the actual value of the precious metals content included in the item. Melt value does not account for the sentimental or historical value of an item.

CASH4GOLD APPLAUDS GOLD EXHIBIT AT LATIN AMERICAN MUSEUM

Cash4Gold today sent out the following release...


Pompano Beach, Fla. – March 5, 2010 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the trusted industry leader in mail-in gold buying, regularly keeps track of the latest news surrounding precious metals and learned of the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum located in San José, the capital city of Costa Rica.

The Gold Museum opened in 1982 as a part of the Museums of the Central Bank of Costa Rica located in the Plaza de la Cultura. The Pre-Columbian Gold Museum is housed in the same area as the Numismatic Museum and an art exhibition space. The museum began collecting the artifacts in the 1950s and the complete collection currently consists of around 1,600 items. At any given time, about 900 pieces are on display in the museum.

The gold artifacts draw inspiration from the diverse species of the surrounding landscape. Many of the objects include small pendants in the shape of butterflies, monkeys, jungle cats and crocodiles. With the discovery of vast gold deposits in Costa Rica, early Pre-Columbian era artisans were able to make numerous items such as pendants and even larger traded goods. Visitors to Costa Rica can find more information on the museum at www.museosdelbancocentral.org.

This exhibit is proof that gold has been a valuable commodity for hundreds of years. Gold has always provided a value for consumers regardless of the era. Today, gold prices are near record highs, which makes it the perfect time to turn unwanted, broken or unused items into cash. The process is secure and easy. For consumers with items of high sentimental or historical values, such as the pieces at The Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, sending them to Cash4Gold for their melt value might not be the best option. Melt value refers to the value of actual precious metal included in an item and does not account for the sentimental or historic value.

Cash4Gold provides an easy and secure method for Americans to monetize broken and unwanted gold items from the comfort of their own homes. Customers can simply request a pre-paid Jewelry Return Pack from Cash4Gold and mail in their items. After receiving the Pack and sending in the items, Cash4Gold assays the contents of the package at its state-of-the-art facility and then sends out a check for the melt value. If consumers aren’t completely satisfied with the valuation, they can request that Cash4Gold return their items within 12 days of the date printed on the check at no charge to the customer.

For more information or to request a Pack from Cash4Gold, please visit www.Cash4Gold.com or call 1-877-GOLD-590. Additional news is available on the Cash4Gold blog.
