Silver fell 25% over the past two days and gold is down 15% compared to its record-breaking $1,923.7/ounce September 6 value.

Posted on 13 September 2011 by Andrei

Just got a “call” on Skype with a title similar to “System Message! Urgent Call” or something like that and thought I’d warn you guys about it. Needless to say, I declined and blocked the user in question but out of curiosity, I performed a Google search to find out how those people operate.
