I just heard about the Republic Metals lawsuit, which alleges that Mulligan Mint owes them about 71,000 ounces of silver. Unless Mulligan is able to eventually settle their writ of attachment and carry on with business (which looks doubtful), I recommend that my readers stop doing any business with Mulligan Mint.
For the record: As of this day, I have received no compensation whatsoever from Mulligan Mint except for one sample 1-ounce silver Redoubt coin. (Their promised sales commissions have not been fulfilled.)
They have made me repeated promises and excuses for delays in delivery. In a phone conversation in the middle of July, Rob Gray promised me that “all but 500 ounces” of the American Redoubt 1-ounce silver rounds had already been shipped to customers on orders up to that date, and that any backlogged orders would be shipped by around July 25th. It is now clear to me that Rob Gray was being deceitful. He never mentioned the Republic Metals lawsuit to me. He was carrying on as if nothing was amiss. In fact last last week he was still corresponding with me about plans to design and release a 1/10th-ounce fractional American Redoubt coin. I should not have trusted his word.
I have removed the Mulligan Mint ad from my blog site. My apologies for expecting Rob Gray to honor his promises. At this stage, I have no idea how this will be resolved for anyone with pending orders. If I hear anything about potential recourse then I will post it, post haste. I find this all quite distressing.
Under the terms of the restraining order, no silver–regardless of form, raw or finished –leaves the facility until after Republic recovers their 71,000 Troy ounces. That company is essentially now the proverbial “first guy in line” in the eyes of the law. All other claims are secondary. I now expect to see a full scale implosion of the company, civil suits, and possibly criminal charges. This won’t end well.
I’m very sorry to have been involved by accepting Mulligan Mint as a blog advertiser. This is what I get for trusting people. My sincere apologies. Once again, I recommend that my readers stop doing any business with Mulligan Mint.
And if you are wondering what is going on with those that are most under the spell of Rob Gray, the Mulligan Mint employees, here is what they did with stolen money over the weekend…
I know at least two employees that have their entire life savings invested in the Mulligan Mint. If I was Rob, I would be more concerned about the day they realize they were ROBbed than any lawsuits filed from the likes of me or Republic. I have the means of moving on with the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield with Warbird and Love and 45+ designs, but a person that committed so much capital and time into a ponzi scheme and lost everything…
