Inspired Silver is an unethical online retail and Jewelry catalog company who would rather knock off jewelry designs being produced by their current manufacturer or wholesaler instead of paying their bills. David Strager who resides in Hermosa Beach and Ann Strager who resides in Rancho Palos Verdes are extremely unethical individuals who are absolutely guilty of Intent to Defraud. (I've seen all the Emails and financial documentation to support this claim).
Being in the industry for years, I have come across several manufacturers and resellers who have previously sold their goods to David, and Ann. Their M.O. is order goods, (some are custom orders), and as they promise thirty day payment, will tell you a check has been cut, or that a check gets cut for invoices every two weeks, but instead, when the money is due, they will offer a series of similar excuses, such as the book-keeper quit, or is sick, and before you know it you are looking more at 90 - 120 days. Currently they owe my friend close to $25,000.00 (and it is over 190 days) wholesale cost to Accessories Rock, but instead of honoring their fiduciary and moral obligations, would rather have another company make up the goods where the quality of those same goods also comes into question. They find these companies by attending various jewelry trade shows, then use their company image of being a large company loving their products and wanting to order from them. What the supplier doesn't know is they are about to be ripped off themselves.
It has been noticed that a company called Athra was making up their goods. If you go the following links, www.inspiredsilver.com, and www.athra.com you will see all the same styles which are Accessories Rock styles. When my friend initially got into the business, he bought a few things from Athra. The main problem he indicated is the quality of the cubic zirconia stones was not nearly as clear as they should be. According to my friend, Inspired Silver claimed these goods were not items that sold, and returned them after many months of holding them, but instead obviously gave a copy of them to Athra. Inspired Silver is a company lacking the morals and ethics that one should seek when doing business. This is not something you would realize when you go to their website as they boast images from media endorsement form the "Today Show or "The View." I wonder how those fine organization's would feel if they really knew how this company operates?" Ann Strager's mother out of Century Village in Boca Raton Florida should be commended on a job well done on how she raised her children!
I felt it was my duty not to let unscrupulous individuals as such get away with this kind of behavior, and just so you know, they are charging you 3 or 4 times more than what he sold it to them for. If you come to my friend's site www.accessoriesrockjewelry.com, assuming he has it as it is still in style, he will sell it for much less than what you will pay buying it through them, and most likely much better quality, after all, they stuck him with excess inventory.
