Elisha swindled us and another customer in 2 entirely different separate creative schemes.
us: He told us that he knew all about 'old' estate diamonds and he was wheeling and dealing and could buy and sell for handsome profits. he also convinced us that he was distantly related to us (as we were fond of geneology) and he also cozied up to us while serving together overseas. Nothing like being ripped off by a 'friend' and 'relative' We were not entirely convinced to invest in buying an old diamond from him, but then he pulled the ultimate: he promised that if he couldn't resell the diamond for us for a nice profit, he'd buy it back form us for what we paid for it. So--how could we lose?? I'll tell you how: he couldn't sell it, told us the market had suddenly dried up for those kinds of diamonds. we took possessionof the diamond and tried to slel ti as well and found no takers iint hat old style of diamond. So we, of course, asked hi to buy ti back.
First off, he's back ovreseas and his wife tells us she can't reach him. Messages go unanswered for months, e-mails not responded to. when we finally make contact, he gives us a song and dance about personal hardships that should have nothing to do with running his business (father dying and sister ill) which were causing him to be destitute--yet his website(s) continue to tout how he can wheel and deal and buy and sell stones internationally. He painted himself as a man who buys and sells gemstones all the time. Evidently that was fraudulent. Otherwise, why can't he swing one of his own gemstone investments and make the $ he needs to simply give us our $ back and get back his supposedly valuable diamond? Why would he want to stick us--pure novices in gems--with a diamond when he has such a market for them?? Certainly the great gemologist Elijah Morgan with all his 'contact' should be able to sell this stone easily for a handy profit. (you'll note the hallmark of a rip-off by the way he runs several websites, all claiming an 'us' involved in this great gem business but as far as anyone I've contacted knows, including the BBB, the only person involved in any of these businesses is Elisha Morgan! He used to be in New Hampshire, I think he's gotten a divorce and moved to Texas now.)
I'll tell you why. Because part 2 of his rip-off is what happened to a friend of ours (whom we met only by finding we'd both been ripped off by Elisha Morgan!) this fellow sent truly valuable jewelry pieces to Elisha for appraisals. Then--suddenly pieces end up missing while in Elisha's possession! Never returned. Never paid for, communication ceased!
Detective in New Hampshire, Frank Moran, mentions similar incidents reported where Elisha Morgan had also 'lost' someone's jewlery items.
Elisha Morgan, when he does respond, fails to communicate and immediately sends his lawyer after you.
this man deserves a good flogging.
