Macy's Macy's Ripped Me Off On A Gold Purchase Peoria, Illinois
*Consumer Comment: Ridiculous complaint.
*Consumer Comment: Retail Prices
Let me also say that no weights of the chains were listed on the website, and the photos were blown up to make the chains look way bigger then they were when I got them.
So I bought the two chains and charged it to my Macy's credit card. The total was $901.00, with tax and shipping. When I got the chains and looked at them I was shocked, they were small, light, and tiny. And I instantly knew they were not even close to $1.000.00 in gold, or $700.00 in gold, let alone $500.00 or $350.00.
Then I took them to Jones Bros. jewelry for an appraisal. They told me the heavier chain was 2.6 grams and worth $150.00, and the lighter chain was 1.6 grams worth $90.00. Those are retail values based on gold prices of $1.752.00 an ounce.
Needless to say I was stunned, because the so-called $1.700.00 worth of gold chains was only worth a total of $240.00. What they did was misrepresent the gold chains as being worth $1.000.00 and $700.00 with enlarged photos and no weight on the chains.
Then they act as if you are getting a good deal by saying they are 50% off, when in fact you are getting ripped off big time. Because I ended up paying $500.00 for a $150.00 chain, and $350.00 for a $90.00 chain.
I feel this is fraud and I am shocked Macy's can get away with this. I sent the chains back and will close my account with Macy's and never do business with them again. In fact, I am planning to report them to the BBB, and the Illinois Attorney General.
I would also be willing to file a lawsuit against them, so if anyone is an attorney and they think I have a case, please contact me.
