Recently, the German television station ProSieben ran a news story covering W. C. Heraeus in Hanau, Germany, the world’s largest privately owned refinery. In the story, Wilfried Hörner, the head of the gold foundry, shows a 500 gram bar (16.0755 troy ounces) received from an unidentified bank. The bar had the right physical dimensions to be an authentic gold bar, but one of the Heraeus employees suspected something funny. After the bar was cut in half, you can see that the inside is tungsten, with only a coating of gold on the outside.

Edit to Add - I just had another thought about it. Pat Boone has been on tv a lot lately with his gold commercials. "Don't wait to buy gold. Buy gold, and wait!"
If connected, it would make a perfect circle of monetary exchange.
I send Pat Boone $1,000 to invest in gold.
You send your watch to CashForGold and they send you $150.
The $150 would come out my $1,000 investment.
They use my money to buy your gold to cover their asses without ever having to risk their own money in the process.
Just a thought. Might be worth digging in to to see if we could uncover any connections.
