IT'S A SCAM!!! I gathered all my old gold jewlery, 13 pieces. Mailed them in a envelope that i was told was insured. Two days later i found all this negative information on the internet about cash 4 gold. Four weeks later i was living the nightmare stories i read on the internet. The package i was told was insured, it was but only for $100, i had over $2000 worth of jewlery in that package. Like many of the stories on the net my package came up missing and the company wanted to instantly send me my $100 insurance claim. They told me they would intiate an investigation with the United Postal Service. Two weeks later i found out they didn't, so I did. I was told by my local postal service to contact thePostal Inspector who informed me that my missing package to this company is one of SEVERAL just from my state alone. The larger valued packages are being stolen. an investigation is on going. So for over $2000.00 worth of jewelry i am going to end up with $100. After all the complaints and negative info i have uncovered about this company, i don't understand how they they have not been investigated and shut down.

These people are pieces of ###. They sent me 10$ for over 2, 000$ worth of jewelry, then when I asked for it back, they told me to send the check, I did so. NEVER got ANYTHING back. AND they ignored EVERY message and call after I sent them their check back! PLUS now? One of the rings I sent them was an engagement ring from an ex who died. GREAT. THANKS. Don't even bother with these ###s.

Oh, Yea, i keep gettin these Gold Buying bizz cards on my doorstep (even posted!, No advertising, No Agents, No Soliciting, No Tresspassing, and included Municipal code #'s for violations!), yet these ###s still stick this crap in my door anyway(set the alarm off couple times, they push the door to slip in there card)(i'am gonna get a motion detect cam here soon).

Nothing on the card except a cell phone number(We come to you!!, , , Cash For Oro 909-631-5281 "Rafael" buyer is a "Now Confirmed" trespasser btw, 92335 area, left three cards here in two weeks),
How in the hell is that supposed to be serious??, Bells and Whistles?, I say call the cops and bust there flakey ###'s(or at least Call local Law enforcement, let them know whats goin on!!!, help others out!!).

I figure these clowns will stake you out("if" they show up at all, L O L, and if they do, after they refuse to buy your gold) and tag you later????(they now have your address, nice warm feeling eh?, and you have no idea where they are @).

i just about fully agree about keeping your silver/gold/plat as the one poster mentioned some time back, paper money will soon be worthless(L O L about there now?, thanx Obama/Congress Gov, obama can't even unlock Bush's tax cuts).
I tried an ad found in paper(pennysaver, L O L ), Called Top$$$forGold(Top $$$ for Gold) they had two ads that look totally different in the same issue(pennysaver).
i called asked for quotes(several times, just on basic goods) and the lame secretary just kept saying to come down for a free evaluation, the only way.
so i drove all the way to riverside(ca.) at there 10955 Magnolia Ave address(between La Sierra & Tyler) (888-877-3538).
Was only one guy there(Way Waaay Creepy lookin guy, young/tats/pierced, 25 maybe?), was a customer before me(two lady's), i waited and watched the customer's say they thought that was way to low(i could see what they had, gold/silver, kinda a lot), and not according to there claims(ad) and then left.
Well that almost made me follow them, but i had to ask about his quotes(prices).
He asked me if i was a dealer, i said i used to make jewelry and sell, and have not done that in years,
Then GET THIS!!!( L O L ) the Flake said he(they) don't do any bizz at all with dealers, I said i am not a dealer anymore, he said that's the way it goes, NO DEALERS! (Huh?, What the hell does that have to do with anything at all!!!). He didn't even want to see what i had(just silver only, Scrap/bullion/silver coins, all together about 5 1/2 troy pounds).
I kept asking him why in the world do you refuse to buy from my simple honest efforts, would not answer, just rambled/ranting about how he does bizz, and i can do my own bizz the way i want(Would not answer a simple question at all).

I still have silver to fool with(am retired so i don't silversmith that much anymore, sometimes gold work) but just wanted to sell some of it to help means out.
I just figured that they don't want to deal with dealers, simply because they are usually "aware"?? of the current spot prices and real worth??, Sure! i know they need to make a profit, BUT!!!, i would be happy to just get 65-70% of spot(scrap), should get 75 to 85% spot for clean/er metal/s.
I take it that most of these Grummy A-Hole buyers are just "GIMMYJIMMY's" (Like you see on CL), i don't ebay anymore(that's where all the flakes are now) since 2008, i'll never trust paypal ever!!!(L O L, That's all we need, More! "not never ever needed" Greedy Flakes, L O L, nice country eh?, Law enforcement, L O L, L O L, L O L ).
One poster here mentioned a Gov plot to buy all our precious metals( L O L, Goodone, L O L ), L O L, Maybe?,
i know for "fact" they still treat "the people" that voted them in like cattle(where's that cattle prod!!).

Say, why not just wait till you have bulk amounts(like they do, lets say more than 10 Lbs or what required to submit, pool together ones you trust to get the/a "measured amount" agreed), then just sell directly to refiners, HandyHarman? or englehard?, are they not refiners?(what middle man!!!).

for now i am jus going to sell some of my antiques to help means, just might need my silver(gold) to put beans on the table later.
Goodtimes All.

it would appear as though you have mistakenly used (cashforgold.com) when you meant to use cash4gold.com.

Your comment contains both. However, clearly the second cash4gold.com is what was intended as a response to the original poster, who by the way lists their location in VIRGINIA. CashForGold.com (United Jewelry Buyers) DOES NOT EXTEND THEIR SERVICES TO RESIDENTS OF VIRGINIA.

www.CashForGold.com (United Jewelry Buyers) WILL NOT MELT PROCESSES METALS "IMMEDIATE PAYMENT" ORDERS UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE PAYMENT HAS CLEARED THEIR BANK OR A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TIME HAS PASSED SINCE THE CHECK WAS ISSUED.

cash 4 gold is run by the government, they are going to bankrupt the population and issue a new currency. prices are going to skyrocket and they are going to back all the new currency with all this gold they ripped off everybody for. when everybody is poor they are going to issue the new currency and act like they saved the day. theyre control hungry and are using everybody as puppets

99% of these scams can be avoided if you just contact the websites http://cashforgoldusa.com directly for example and tell them your issues. Going to complaint boards should be a last result.

CASH 4 GOLD THEY ARE A RIP OFF TRUST ME I USED TO WORK THERE N LEFT BECAUSE I HAD 2 MOVE 2 PHILADELFIA N I THINK THAT THATS NOT RITE WHAT THEY DOING..."

Hey Mike, how about posting like a normal, educated human being and stop using lazy "text speak". I would've been more to apt to believe that you were an employee of that company if you didn't sound like an ignorant ###. Do you really think anyone will take you seriously when you talk like that?

I can just picture your cover letter for a job, "Yo, I rlly wnt dis job in yo co. cuz I like 2 work rlly hrd n cum to work on tme. So plz hire me 4 da job."

Sorry people, but as a teacher, it drives me nuts that I have to pretty much start kids over in language arts because they try to write in stupid "text speak". I fear for the next generation.

Also, be aware of websites that provide reviews of all cash for gold websites as these may be direct affiliates (same owners) as some of these websites. like www.cashforgoldplatinum.com was launched by the same scammers that operate www.cashforgoldusa.com. also, be aware of news stories that praise or denounce certain websites. as these may be also written by less than objective individuals.

Also, be aware of review sites that bash some companies over others, like www.cashforgoldplatinum.com. They are obviously affiliated (same owners) as www.cashforgoldusa.com. So, don't believe their ratings and comments.

One night i was watching a informerical because i couldn't sleep. It had a man and 2 blondes showing small amounts of gold bringing in large amounts of money. He looked like Kevin Trudeau but a little heavyer. I called the telephone nbr, recevied a large fedex enverlope 2 days later. I put my gold bracelets and errings that i hardly ever wear in the envelope, took it to Kinko's that had a fedex department, she gave me a receipt but i lost it, now i don't have the receipt or the company information attached to it. I've not heard from anyone. That was back in july, i called fedex and they told me not way to find without the tracking nbr or the name of the company. Did anyone else out there see the informercial?
