This is an email from Bernard von NotHaus who is the Monetary Architect and Editor of the Liberty Dollar.
Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters!
Some years ago, news reporter Simon Constable joked that you should hide your Liberty Dollars because the feds are coming after them!
Unfortunately, the Secret Service just took an alarmingly big step in that direction.
I just received the message below that was sent to an E-Bay seller who had all his NORFED Liberty Dollar (NORFED) removed from his site:
Message from E-Bay:
Dear mike XXX,
You recently listed the following listing:
221158190865 – $5 Liberty Dollar Silver Certificate Warehouse Receipt (Norfed) 1/2 Oz UNC
221158191090 – Liberty Dollar $10 Silver Certificate Warehouse Receipt (Norfed) 1oz UNC
Unfortunately, we had to remove your listing because of the following:
The United States Secret Service has requested the removal of all Norfed Liberty dollars on the eBay site as counterfeits. If you have any questions you can contact them at the US Secret Service Public Affairs Office: 202-406-5708.
Please do not relist this item(s).
We appreciate that you chose to list this coin on our site and understand there was no ill intent on your part. Your listing fees have been credited to your account.
And the flood of emails keeps coming in! It is clear that e-Bay is working their way through the listings that use NORFED as the key search word. Of course, there is no way to know how long this will take. I would imagine that this witch-hunt should be over by the time this Alert is posted. But please contact me immediately if you still have Liberty Dollars listed on e-Bay.
The alarming nature of this action is that Mike’s only two listings were for two paper warehouse receipts only and they were acknowledged to be legal by the US Mint in a letter to Senator Benson of Florida.
In other cases, everything that was listed was removed, even non-Liberty Dollar material!
And in other cases, there are still some sites with Liberty Dollars. Just search eBay for NORFED and you will have the latest results.
Certainly, the most alarming chain of events would be for the Secret Service or the God awful FBI to pursue the e-Bay sellers and start raiding their homes and businesses. The truth is that there is no way to know how far this criminal government will push this ghastly action. So it is important to be prudent.
Please report any and all relevant actions that you experience to the email address below.
I deeply regret reporting this tyrannical action by the government.
Many thanks for your continued support. For it is only by banding together and adopting a free and independent currency that provides us with “just weights and measures” will we be able to throw off the yoke of a manipulated monetary/tax system and generate a peaceful and prosperous society.
