The Divine Bazaar SCAM on Facebook and Internet

On June 18, I was cruising on Facebook and an ad came up that caught my attention. This ad was for a “religious” company named Divine Bazaar. It was an offer to receive “free of charge” one ounce .999 Fine 24 K Gold Coin of Jesus with a portrait on the back of the Lord’s Supper in the Upper Room painted by Leonardo DaVinci, by answering 5 Bible Questions most “Christians” could not answer.

My Background

With Extensive studies in Paleo Hebrew, Greek, Bible History and Greek History, I already knew that there was not much about Bible questions I could be stumped on by modern day “Christians.” I proceeded and got all 5 questions correct.

Then it was explained that I would receive “Free” an ounce coin of my choice for answering the questions. One Ounce .999 fine 24K Gold coin with a value of up to $1363.00. All that I had to do was pay for the shipping costs with my credit card. Shipping came to $13.95 so I went ahead and ordered it. There were several “gold” coins and a couple of different “gold” bars.

One thing for certain, it would either be Legit or it would be a Scam.

Day 1 – Wed, Jun 19, 2019, 6:38 am

ORDER #37402 was confirmed. Rare Last Supper Jesus Coin.

Day 2 – Thu, Jun 20, 2019, 9:37 am

Your order has shipped out and is on its way. To find your package: 9400111699000296446049

Interesting, I even received a USPS Tracking number to try to show the authenticity of the order.

I pulled up the Tracking number and here is what I saw.

Expected Delivery by MONDAY 24 JUNE 2019 by 8:00 pm

Day 3 – Fri, June 21, 2019, 9:13 am

I received another notice of estimated delivery and checked the tracking number. IT showed where the package had come from since shipping as all tracking numbers show, and that it was scheduled to be delivered the next day.

Day 4 – Sat, June 22, 2019, 07:32 am

On Sat morning I received notice that the package was on the truck to be delivered that day. Since I know the postal carrier on my route, I knew about what time he would be there on Saturday. Having other things going on I knew where it would be when I got home so I went about my business. When I arrived home later, there was no package and no delivery email in my inbox.

Sunday afternoon, my neighbor dropped by with a package that he said had fallen on his porch the day before. I took one look and it was the package from Divine Bazaar. I walked back home, opened the package and it contained One “gold” coin. It was beautiful. But I was still not convinced.

Conclusion

On Monday morning, I left my house with the intention of first finding out whether the coin was real or not. I drove to a friend who deals in jewelry, gold, and silver. I explained to him what was going on and asked him if he would check it out. He first went to the Internet and started finding all kinds of reviews about Divine Bazaar and then reached under his counter and pulled out his test kit to test for the Purity of Gold and Silver.

He took the coin face up and took his knife and scored the face of it to cut through the finish. He then squirted the test solution on the face and it started bubbling and smoking. Right away we both knew that it was FAKE. .999 Fine Gold has no reaction to this chemical. The photo on the left is the actual Backside of the coin I received. The center photo is from the Divine Bazaar website and also showing the Estimated current value for one Ounce of Gold. I forgot to take the photos of both sides of the coin before the test.

The photo on the right is the photo taken of the coin just a few minutes after the solution to determine the purity of the gold was applied. On the right side, you can easily detect the discoloration of the finish. Since the finish was not Pure gold you can see the result. This photo clearly shows that the Last Supper Jesus Coin is a FAKE and a SCAM.

The nice thing, I was able to get out of this for only $13.95 loss. No big deal. But what about all of those people out there that had ordered several of these coins. The Money that they have lost. All because of a so-called “Christian Organization” PREYING on unsuspecting, gullible people.

divinebazaar.com puts themselves forward as being a Christian organization offering many “Free” gifts and a substantial number of Tee-shirts, coffee cups, tote bags, and other paraphernalia reasonably priced.

They can be found on Facebook advertising, Facebook Group, on the internet or divinebazaar.com
