Gold Coins 4 Sale (goldcoins4sale.co.uk) & Copyright Theft
Gold Coins 4 Sale (goldcoins4sale.co.uk) sailorpower of Ardrossan, Ayrshire, KA22 7PH, UK is yet another dishonest website who has used our copyright images without permission.
Copyright Theft is Dishonest - Can You Trust This Site?
Using other people's copyright images is illegal, it is dishonest, and it is unethical. Using the hard work of a fellow dealer or website owner to sell the same goods or advice in competition with him demonstrates an extremely low standard of ethics. We would not recommend anybody to transact business with this person or company.
Gold Coins 4 Sale are using a number of our high quality copyright coin photographs on many of their web pages, including their "Home or Index" page, "Gold Dealers" page, Gold Sovereigns" page, "Knowledge Base" page, "Books" page, "Online Videos" page, "Prices" page, shown here, together with a significant number of other pages.
These images are our copyright property, and are being used without our permission.
Who would have thought such honest (although they do not claim this) respectable
people would resort to stealing images from their competitors?
Gold Coins 4 Sale's "About Us" Page
As with most of these useless, time-wasting, pseudo-expert, advertising portal
webshites websites, there is no "About Us" page.
The entire site appears to have been created with such care and attention that we wondered what "Gold Dealers Borkers" were. We thought it might be some American distortion of the English language, but it eventually dawned on us that it was a typo for "Gold Dealers Brokers". Of course Mr sailorpower might well be a borker, whatever one of those is.
From the online Urban Dictionary we found:
From the realrates consultant website. Originally a typo for "broker". It describes a less than ethical technical recruiter. There are variations like borkette (female) and borkery (place of business). The verb 'borked' can mean "cheated by a borker".
...sounds about right then!
The only jobs that I could find were sponsored by borkers that were paying far below market rates.
The bork insisted that I come to the office to fill out 20 pages of useless paperwork.
As soon as I mentioned to the borkette that I wanted a full disclosure clause in the contract agreement she stopped calling me.
