Freedom Tower Dollars can be returned
I just learned that anyone who purchased a 2004 Freedom Tower Silver Dollar can return them for a full refund or cancel an order if you never got the coin in the mail. You should be getting a letter in the mail from Eliot Spitzer with instructions on how to go about it.
Here’s an excerpt from the article where I found the good news.
Consumers who were victims of false advertising and purchased the “2004 Freedom Tower Silver Dollar” may get their money back.
Last week, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer sent 178,000 letters to consumers on how to get a refund or cancel their orders.
In November, New York state Supreme Court Justice Joseph Cannizzaro of Albany County found the National Collector’s Mint, based in Port Chester, N.Y., and operated by Avram Freedberg of Stamford, engaged in fraud, false advertising and deceptive business practices in marketing the coins.
The coin is ostensibly designed to commemorate the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, and allegedly is made of pure silver recovered from the lower Manhattan site.
Cannizzaro ordered National Collector’s Mint to stop engaging in the fraudulent and deceptive practices of which it was found guilty.
