NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Cash4Gold.comCash 4 Gold I got ripped off by CASH4GOLD Pompano Beach Florida
I saw the cash 4 gold commercial on TV and decided to send my broken and old jewelry. They sent me their refiners pack and I sent them approximately 2 ounces of stamped 14 karat and 18 karat jewelry that I don't wear anymore.
I didn't hear from them for 2 WEEKS! I called to find out the status of my shipment, and they kept on telling me that they have not received it. One day a representative told me that I am a liar and I never even sent the package! At that point I was very, very, upset. The very next day, I received a check in the mail for $245.34 from them. That comes out to around $4 per gram. When I tried to decline my offer, they told me that it was too late and that the 10 day period was up and that my gold was destroyed.
My local pawn shop offered me over $600. but I fell for their 5% guarantee over their competitor prices.
They took my gold, and ripped me off with out a gun! I will make sure that this gets broadcasted nationally so that others don't fall victim to their fraudulant activities.
