Elisha Morgan Gemologists, Kashmir-Sapphires, New England Gem Lab, Old European Diamonds Exercise extreme caution and protect your valuables Austin Texas
We can use this space to describe the months of research, legal professionals, BBB reports, lawyers, accrediting agencies and other people or officials we have contacted to recover what was once important estate valuables we entrusted to sole proprietor Mr. Morgan--and which were either legitimately lost or sold without approval for higher gain.
In the interest of time, however, let us get to the point: If you plan on hiring the services of the aforementioned Mr. Morgan or any of his numerous business names (now in Texas and previously split between Vermont and New Hampshire), you would do your self a great service to a) reconsider, b) spend an enormous amount of time researching Mr. Morgan's business and his contacts, c) reconsider, or d) reconsider. If none of those options work for you, and you feel you absolutely NEED to consult Mr. Morgan, then as a last result you should "strongly" reconsider. [continued below]....
Although to our knowledge Mr. Morgan has avoided criminal or civil prosecution (with the help of his "good buddy" network), he does have a pretty thick file of documents outlining questionable acts related to his jewelry business. Those documents, however, are in the hands of state officials who cannot easily navigate Mr. Morgan's clever web of cross-state addresses. Sadly, we learned that (and other things) too late after suffering from just one of those acts.
The bottom line here, again, is this: The jewelry businesses run by Mr. Morgan appear either illegal or just downright irresponsible. If you do business with him, you may likely need to choose which word to use when your valuables go missing.
If you choose to ignore this warning, we can only wish you luck. Take comprehensive pictures of your valuables, get them pre-appraised, insure them, and then, if and ONLY if you MUST use this business, risk only those items you have no sentimental, familial, or historical connection with. You may be able to recover a portion of your valuables' worth, but not the items themselves.
