    What an idiot for contacting the FBI, you could have made yourself and all your friends and family rich.

    Why would you tell anyone in the first place… The FBI are not mind reader, How did the FBI found out the gold in the first place? Not only that if they was gold you think the federal government is going to let you keep it? Be real man… I really don’t think the federal government found anything of value at the dip site.. And the reason is the federal government would definitely tell the united states treasury secretary and the united states would display the find…. Now legal the gold belongs to the united states government why would they you anything? Not only that the FBI can’t give anything in the first place its not the FBI gold in the first place… If gold was found it property of united states treasury department and congress would have to give the treasury secretary the okay to give you any gold or rewards in the first place… If any gold was here it property of the American taxpayers….. Not the FBI…. I really believe nothing was found…..

  10. Templar1 on May 25, 2023 at 7:49 am

    Stop telling any government official anything

  11. Linda Close on May 25, 2023 at 7:49 am

    Two men found the gold
    Contacted the government
    And proceeded to take it
    Was on a plane to Russa
    There are manifests to prove it

    Did any FBI officials suddenly retire soon after the dig?

  13. capitalism is a scam on May 25, 2023 at 7:55 am

    The government is the mafia made legal for big bankers

    Ironic to have a company called finders keepers and then have his gold stolen 😂

  16. Bulletproof47 on May 25, 2023 at 8:00 am

    Is this the same idiot who alerted the FBI about the gold instead of keeping his mouth shut????

  17. Dirtrat Boogie on May 25, 2023 at 8:08 am

    Why would you contact the FBI for gold digging?

  18. Rohli Estrada on May 25, 2023 at 8:11 am

    Tuco, Blondie, the Bad, Django, Sartana and Sabata must be rolling in their graves on this Civil War Era booty of gold.

  19. William Warner on May 25, 2023 at 8:17 am

    Looks like he gonna stay workin at McDonald’s

  20. Ismael Enciso on May 25, 2023 at 8:18 am

    How long yall think he has til the government wipes him out? Its his if he found it.

  21. luke wright on May 25, 2023 at 8:19 am

    Big mistake telling any form of government about the gold. The FBI is crooked.

  22. Johnny Jericho on May 25, 2023 at 8:22 am

    Check the agents on scene and their bank accounts.

  23. swampfizz on May 25, 2023 at 8:24 am

    no detector lights up gold..gold falls in a number of metals that read the same on detectors including lots of no treasure hunter finds something mysterious and doesnt at least confirm what it is it just isnt in our dna..we have to know what it is first even if we would contact the govt

    maybe it was something secret tho..maybe some kind of lost nuke Broken Arrow but as to why the Govt would hide it is questionable since we know of many that were found and they did report it..south carolina north carolina georgia ect ect why not penn.

  24. Oliver Walker on May 25, 2023 at 8:25 am

    FBI stole the gold 100%! They never had any intention of working with the man that found it. If they wouldn’t let the man stand their and watch or help, well that just verified how corrupt they are.
