(1lb Bag) (2nd Review)

I was just looking at my videos on YouTube last night trying to think about how to update them all to add ROIs at the end, when I realized how few video I have been putting out lately. So I have ordered more paydirt and will focus on getting out more reviews for you guys and gals. I am going to keep this part short because the actual review is really really long!

Well on to the review and remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE so as to not miss any of my reviews.

The Review:

I had previously reviewed back in December, and I usually wait at least a year for 2nd reviews. However I made a few (two) mistakes in my review with some misquotes. I did update the review and the video to state those errors but I just wasn’t happy with that. So I decided to order a bag sooner than I normally would for a second review.

Things went down hill from the day I placed my order. First I totally forgot I had even ordered the paydirt, which is stupid. Then when I realized the order was late I emailed Gino, which was my second mistake. I will post all of the emails in their entirety below, nothing was edited or removed. I will also add some short (or not so short) comments about each of those emails between me and Gino the owner of EurekaGoldSands.

Now before you read this (if you dare) let me say I am not mad I never received my paydirt. I know stuff gets lost in the mail, so not worried about that. Though I am not so sure the package was actually lost and not ignored, but no proof to that. What bugs and makes me mad is how Gino claims to be too sick to ship out paydirt but not so sick he can’t take my money. Well anyways here are the emails:

From me to Gino:

So received no reply for 72 hours so sent another email:

Now I got a response from Gino about an hour later so here it is:

Now I know in my video review and future emails I say he never gives me an apology and he sort of does in this email, but it it followed by a “but” which negates the apology. What really got my goat was the absurdity of his excuse. You see Gino runs a Facebook page where he runs raffles to promote his Paydirt and I follow that channel so I get updates on my phone every time he makes a post. So I KNEW in the last 2 weeks while I had been waiting for my paydirt he was running raffle and shipping the winners paydirt. Not to mention all the physical things he was doing in the 2 weeks prior to these emails. I wont get into that though lets just read on, so here was my reply to this email:
Now as you can see Gino was very much out an about during this whole time. In the 2 weeks that elapsed since I placed my order and in that time where he had a heart attack he managed to run 2 raffles and ship out paydirt, go mining, and walk around the Quesnel Gold Show. Yet he could’t hand my package to the postman.
Gino did reply to me yet again:
So shipping out a 1lb package of already packaged paydirt is hard work? Yet walking around a gold show or mining isn’t? I shared the video of Gino at the Qesnel Gold show on my facebook page and you can view it HERE. Well that peeved me off so replied again:
Now as you can see my sarcasm is taking a hold as I am tired of his BS. Well lucky me Gino wasn’t done either so he replied yet again:

So now asking for updates or shipping of my paydirt is unreasonable, ugh! So sent Gino one more email:

At this point it as obvious to me that Gino was probably a goner, and his health had taken such a horrible turn I probably would never see my paydirt. So I stopped emailing Gino and waited until the 14th of May and filed a paypal dispute. In between that time Gino did decide to reply to me:Now again I was done, it was obvious “The Gold King” hadn’t or wasn’t going to ship me my paydirt or apologize for failing to do so. So I let the paypal dispute ride but Gino wasn’t done he sent me this email the day after I won my dispute, because he didn’t actually ship out my paydirt. So here is Gino’s last email to me:Still a bully! I love how he still threatens me with action against my paypal account as well as to report me to the credit bureau, what a joke. He honestly does think he is a “King” and we are all just some peasants he can treat how he wishes.

So those were all of the emails between me and Gino from I will point out also that on my last review Gino vaguely threatened me with a lawsuit….

under threat of lawsuit for his poor quality rigged review many fans came to his page to complain and he retracted it. If I see this form of biased again I will take the same actions I did with Wayne.

Gino said that Wayne from WaynesThisandThat had retracted a review under threat of lawsuit which is untrue as that review is still up. However it was obviously Gino trying to bully my review which failed.

EurekaGoldSands 1lb Regular Mix bag ended with a score of 1.0 out of 10. This is my new time all time low score, and I seriously doubt anyone will get lower. They essentially only got points for answering my emails and having a website. I will never order another bag of paydirt from EurekaGoldSands as the owner is a bully and does not know the first thing about customer service.

This review is my opinion and my results may vary from your results. My bag may have been a bad batch or a great batch, remember no two bags of paydirt are ever the same. So please use common sense when buying paydirt from any seller. Oh and good luck and happy panning!
