I will make this real simple so everyone can understand. Sh*t happens.

You misunderstand. I'm saying that the FR was not shown to be caused by the coins, unless it was a new account.

Anyone doubt Pan Ogorki has an exemption?
I have no exemption, but I have a lot of friends, all of them Americans, none made of silicone.

Error Code: 14998

I recieved this error tonight. Kept trying to see if it was something I did wrong. Kept getting the message, will try tomorrow.

My first thought was the same as yours, that my silicone friends had incompletely registered their contact info. In fact, most of my friends were only required to fill out a plain vanilla registration, which included their zip code only. I thought perhaps the reason they didn't get hired was that their identity couldn't be verified without a complete domicile address. But thats not the case, since many of their cousins filled out the same job applications and were hired on the spot.

I think QL_174 is right... Sometimes sh*t happens. I will be able to confirm this soon, because my unemployed silicone cousins have re-applied for jobs with no other changes to their applications, nothing fancy, just plain vanilla. We'll see.

Dude, you must have a LOT of friends if you can bring home that much metal without any of it coming from a silicone gift.

How did you make friends with that many Americans? I'm sure some of them are personal friends, and some are business acquaintances... but is their a limit as to how many friends one can accumulate and be personally responsible for?

Based upon your reports of quantity and frequency, that should be A LOT.

Strange am ex authorization

Placed a few orders this morning. My am ex is getting authorized on the spot again for NA purchases which is great. Was weird when I checked my authorizations.


Two showed up as Office of Dollar Coin program which is how they always have in the past.

Third said "Direct response" for $1K. Weird it is showing a different merchant for the third order.

I had the same thing happen a month or so ago. When I called AMEX they said it showed up as US Mint. I remember googling Direct Response and it came up with a Washington DC address, so I think it might be connected to the Mint.

As fun as the code speak is, maybe we can keep it in PM? We saw what happened to the AmEx cards. We dont need the issuers taking adverse actions due to the purchase type or due to influx of users, or the mint taking similar action as they did AmEx cards. Or even the original sales channels taking action as well. We must not forget the amount of lurkers currently and just how many more will come from the stupid stories that get published in print, in time. Although I suspect many Newbies will flood the PM system as well.

By the way, one more coin taken out of stock. Our time may be coming to a close.

And then there were two, apparently soon none.

Wondering if my Jeffs will ship or be cancelled. I've had orders for coins that went out of stock after I ordered go both ways...

BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID. The past is the past, now your payments are being processed by the attorney general. Cover your tracks. Amex may also now treat "Direct response" as a cash advance. The game is over.
