Heritage scammed me out of $18000 in consigned coins and  almost defrauded me out of $21,000 in coin purchases. Thanks to me credit card companies I was able to have them do chargebacks. I sent them 8 coins for consignment and they've pocketed the coins and money received from the sale of those coins. Heritage appears to keep your coins when you complain.

If you have any problems with Heritage you may contact the owner Steve Ivy at:

RealClient's Statements are Totally False so Please Ignore Them

AUTHOR: RS1 - ()

Please disregard realclient's statements against me claiming I'm a scammer as they are completely untrue. There is a known cyber bully and stalker in the online community who defames and harasses people. I have a great working relationship with Heritage Auctions and Todd Imhoff, the Executive Vice President. This online stalker realclient has made the same false statements against everyone who filed a ROR complaint against Heritage. He is clearly a cyber bully who's sole purpose is to make false claims against innocent people he does not know and never met.

Proof that Gary (the Original Author) is a Liar, Fake, Fraud, and Lunatic

AUTHOR: realclient - ()

NOBODY WITH AN IQ ABOVE 70 WOULD TAKE SERIOUSLY GARY'S PREPOSTEROUSLY FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING. To follow is absolute proof that the original author, Gary (aka many aliases), is a lying, mentally ill, insecure, projecting criminal. Scroll down through Gary's sub-literate posts on this page to Heritage's post: "UPDATE Employee: This Former Customer is Under FBI Investigation for Fraud".

Therein, you will find Gary's full name, city, and state. Via Googling, you can then find the Collectors Universe forum in which several consumers note that they have caught Gary perpetrating criminal fraud against Heritage, Ebay buyers, and others via schemes involving stolen photographs, false identities, and other deceptions. I have a screenshot of said consumer comments, just in case they get deleted.

Gary libeled Heritage on Ripoff Report's website and elsewhere because Heritage did not instantly pay him for his consignment of nearly worthless junk. Gary falsely assumed that because HE is a profoundly disturbed criminal, Heritage employees are as well and had every intention of cheating him out of his measly consignment. All auction companies take several weeks or even months before settling with clients.

Gary is a silly wacko who belongs in the psychiatric ward of his state prison, not on the pages of Ripoff Report's website. Notice that Gary has not denied my claims; silence in the face of an accusation is evidence of guilt. Also, I am laughing out loud at Gary's legal threats. He knows absolutely nothing about civil law. Gary, stick to posting meaningless babble on other websites. Ripoff Report's site is too sophisticated for you and your nonsensical spam.

Additional Proof that Gary (the Original Author) is a Nutcase and Liar

AUTHOR: realclient - ()

In my below posts, I have offered overwhelming evidence that Gary is a liar, fraud, fake, criminal, and lunatic. Gary has not specifically denied my claims; silence in the face of an accusation is evidence of guilt. Gary lamely attempts to shift attention from his own wrongdoing by posting a silly blanket disclaimer about me, for which he offers no evidence of any kind. Anyone with an IQ above 70 can determine that, via the evidence presented on this page and others on this website, Gary has no credibility whatsoever. Gary belongs in the psychiatric ward of a state prison, not on the pages of Ripoff Report's website.

Yet More Proof that Gary is a Liar, Fake, criminal, and Nutcase

AUTHOR: realclient - ()

LMAO at Gary's ridiculous claim that I have been in prison for scamming Heritage, even though I am defending them from his libel. Gary does not even know what my name is, but projects his OWN crimes onto me, retaliation because I exposed him. NOBODY WITH AN IQ ABOVE 70 WOULD TAKE SERIOUSLY GARY'S PREPOSTEROUSLY FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING. To follow is absolute proof that the original author, Gary (aka many aliases), is a lying, mentally ill, insecure, projecting criminal. Scroll down through Gary's sub-literate posts on this page to Heritage's update: "UPDATE Employee: This Former Customer is Under FBI Investigation for Fraud". Therein, you will find Gary's full name, city, and state. Via Googling, you can then find the Collectors Universe forum in which several consumers note that they have caught Gary perpetrating criminal fraud against Heritage, Ebay buyers, and others via schemes involving stolen photographs, false identities, and other deceptions. I have a screenshot of said consumer comments, just in case they get deleted.

No Title

AUTHOR: RS1 - ()

Real client is upset because he's been in prison for several months for scamming HA and other companies. His reponses should be ignored because no sane person would behave like him. If Real Client was a real person he would give his full name to prove he's real.

Gary is a Proven Liar and Fraud

AUTHOR: realclient - ()

Just to clear things up, Gary is the original author of this report. He does not even know what my name is, yet libels me with fabricated nonsense in retaliation for the factual bad publicity that I have given him. His ridiculous claim that I defrauded Heritage screams volumes about his mental illness. If that lie was true, why would I be defending them against his defamation? Unfortunately for Gary, we do know what his real name is. Read my posts on his other bogus Heritage threads to learn it, then Google it and his address. My contentions about his criminal actions will then be definitively proven. Gary is a profoundly disturbed criminal who belongs in the psychiatric ward of a state prison. On this page alone, Gary has used eight different aliases, a symptom of his psychopathy. Please read my below posts to learn why none of Gary's complaints about Heritage Auctions on this and other websites have any credibility. I have offered definitive proof that Gary is a liar, fraud, fake, felon, and wacko.

Proof That Gary's Complaints About Heritage Are Invalid

AUTHOR: realclient - ()

With each additional post, Gary (who now goes by Jon123) continues to definitively evidence that he is profoundly mentally ill. His extreme insecurity (a symptom of his sickness) is so severe that he reacts angrily, quickly, and obsessively to the slightest valid criticism. He projects his own flaws onto anyone who exposes him. Google his name and town as they are listed on the Heritage letter to the FBI, then read the posts about him on Collectors Universe's message boards. You will discover that Gary has a habit of defrauding people and creating aliases. The aforementioned facts suggest that Gary's complaints about Heritage have absolutely no credibility nor basis in fact. Of course, anyone with an IQ above 70 has already determined that. I hope that Gary will receive the psychiatric help that he so obviously requires.

Heritage Is Exceedingly Honest

AUTHOR: realclient - ()

If Heritage is so terrible, why did the obviously unstable Gary manufacture multiple false accounts in order to continue dealing with them, as Heritage reported on another thread, yet Gary did not deny? Apparently, said unbalanced person labels a business as dishonest merely because they do not drop everything to instantly service his minuscule transactions to his precise, frivolous, unreasonable expectations.

The only "ripoff" is being perpetrated by this mental patient who is enraged that he could not extort money and special services from a legitimate, honorable, hardworking company. I am officially jumping on the bandwagon with those who defend what America is truly about: An honest, successful, rags-to-riches company! I

The five unique complainants who have trashed Heritage on this website are nearly illiterate, leftwing, bottom-of-the-socioeconomic-ladder crybabies who seem to think that Heritage is in business to royally cater to their every uninformed whim, fallacy, and misconception. I do not believe that a gargantuan auction firm like Heritage would risk damaging their stellar reputation just to cheat these small-time losers out of their virtually worthless junk. 

I suspect that what is really going on is that five obsessed wackos who have failed miserably at life (versus the satisfied 700,000-plus Heritage customers) did not get their backsides kissed during their insignificant transactions with Heritage, so they are unfairly trashing this outstanding company just to fuel the emotional void created by their failed extortion schemes. Several wealthy friends and I are longtime customers of Heritage, yet have never experienced any difficulties. Nobody with an IQ above 70 would take seriously the obviously suspect charges made against Heritage, a firm with an unblemished reputation amongst both heavy hitters and small spenders alike.
