Melrose Jewelers Advertised a genuine Mint Ladies Rolex DateJust all original on eBay I recieved a $20 FAKE for my $3,395.00! Los Angeles California
*General Comment: Sue Melrose Jewelers
*Consumer Comment: Hmmm.....
*Consumer Comment: Scam
*UPDATE Employee: Inaccurate Information
Melrose Jewelers contacted me for payment and asked me to send the money via wire transfer to their Washington Mutual bank account. I complied and wired them $3,395.00. I received the watch approx. 10 days later. Upon examining it I found it to be largely counterfeit. By this I mean that it was not "genuine, all original nor authentic" as they had advertised. It was a 1959 LadyDate Rolex watch case completely fitted with aftermarket or counterfeit components. I am a professional jeweler and have dealt with Rolex watches for nearly 20 years. My professional appraisal of the watch I received would be worth $20-$50. Further inspection revealed that the only genuine component of this watch (being the watch case, not including the movement, dial or crystal) had no legible serial # as all Rolex watches do in order to verify authenticity.
Melrose has been extremely uncooperative and now has refused to respond to any and all phone calls, letters and emails. I have threatened them with legal actions on civil and criminal levels but they don't seem to care. Please help me by doing whatever you can to prevent Kris Lee (sales manager) and whatever or whomever else comprises Melrose Jewelers from any further fraud. I have contacted and been contacted by numerous ebay members who were also scammed by Melrose. Thank you.
