    CHOKED BY DARTH TELLER!!!!

    Ok people you know the drill. A bank appears. You pull in and park. Enter said bank and walk up to the counter with a courteous smile. I said I'd like to buy some half dollars if you have any available. Teller said sure let me check (asks around) and comes up with 2 dollars worth. I buy them and as I'm paying I notice her coin tray, yes, in it there is at least 4 dollars worth of 90%ers (no mistake). AND.....AND.......6 solid inches of silver dimes above the tiny stack of 90%ers. Now, I had to restrain my emotions slightly as you might imagine. I said very politely "could I buy those coins in your tray as well?" Her reply was (verbatim)...."No, I collect silver and those are mine." I swallowed my rage and said thank you and walked out. Give me your thought people, what to do

    When I was building vaults for most of the banks in florida, i learned that if a teller gets caught doing things like that they are history. She wont be around long.

    I understand your frustration, but rage? Far, far better to know that you're not going to get any from her than to keep going back again and again getting skunked.

    I was told by the branch manager that some of her older employees were doing the same thing. But was still willing to order all the halfs I want! Just hope the old hag does not take them.

    With the bank I work for if a customer requests coins that are in a tellers tray they must sell the coins to the customer. If you don't have an account with the bank, your out of luck. One thing I've done before when I come across tellers holding on to silver is make an offer to by the coins. I've got some nice stuff well under spot.

    If you are the type to feel rage by this...then install fear.

    Most people are driven by fear, what they dont want to happen. So threaten going straight to the district/regional and letting him know you were refused service....asking that teller for his number....after you get your coins and have ruined the relationship with the bank. Turn it into a dump bank.

    Follow it up with a very rude comment, like Trix are for kids. Or you must be mad because I got your stash. Smile when you do this. Lastly, make it a game to be the most hated customer in that bank. And smile real big as you prance around in future visits doing the happy dance after youve made your daily dump.

    Let us know how this advide goes....

    Re: CHOKED BY DARTH TELLER!!!!

    In my area it is hard to get halfs. Yesterday I spent two hr's going by a few banks and only got 110 worth some rolled most loose. The bank the loose ones came from the teller helping me told me that another teller had already gone through them looking for silver and all. I nicely asked is that allowed are you all allowed to pick them she said yes. I did find one out of those loose ones and a few other keepers newer years. But I realy do not think that my two hr's was worth all the driving around going in waiting and all that.

    I am so fed up with doing CRH here I have almost gave up on even trying. Even my own bank has told me things like half's are no longer recognized as a currency so we don't get them and when we do we have to send them in to the Fed Reserve. I know thats a crock. Anyway I spoke to my banks president yesterday and yes I can now have them order me half's a min of $1000 two boxes at a time but they are going to charge me the fee that they are changed by the Fed. Is there a fee they are charged?

    Anyway in this last year I have tried doing the CRH off and on have got many different responses from tellers most all leading to they don't have any. I have got $300 to $500 from Wells Fargo but they always give me trouble cause im not a banking customer but our mortgage is through them and a supervisor has told me I can get them with no problem but every time I go in I have problems from the tellers. I may just open an acct there to do it also I will order from my bank if these fee's are not outrages. I like the CRH even though I have not found much at all but it is hard to do around my neck of the woods.

    have you tried the old jedi mind trick --these are NOT the silvers you are looking for ? - many tellers know all about 1964 coins (dimes , quarters and halves) being 90 % silver but know nothing about the 1965 to 1970 40% halfs

    I sent an email to the head boss at the head branch. I told the whole story and expressed my disappointment. I'll let you know what she says when I get a reply.

    If/when they respond, you should let them know that if their tellers are going to be coin collectors while on the clock they should at least keep the coins out of sight from actual customers.

    This. Money in the teller's tray is the bank's money - available for the customers. If the teller wants to buy it, he/she should do so at once and keep it out of sight. Mixing the bank's money with the teller's money is generally a recipe for disaster - for the teller.
