Cash4Gold Holdings / scam

1 Florida, NY, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

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.

    Why would you guys send your items to a gold buyer before knowing what they are going to pay you?
    their are gold buyers out the that have a page where you can get an estimate on your payout.
    Just search for gold buyer and you'll get a hundred results. picking the first result obviously isn't the right thing to do.
    I tried P3MRefining.com since I'm Canadian and they are from my area. They payed me about 70% of what my items were worth.
    They even payed me more than what their estimator calculated because of the gold price increase.

    I have dealt with other companies and thought maybe I was not given a fair amount so I tried Cash4gold figuring with all the tv ads they may be honest. I called them and was told to use their mailer, I asked whether I should send it insured or tracked. The claim rep said, "no, everything will be just fine, use our mailer-we never have any trouble with receiving packages." Well guess what, they claim they never received my package. Anyone reading this stick with a reputable company such as Garfield and get a return receipt and insure your package. Cash4gold is a SCAM!!

    Ever heard of the Nigerian scams throughout the internet. Well like those scams this kind of business preys on those who have fallen victim to predators of the worse kind. Trusting people who have trusted what the T.V. reps have been getting big advertising bucks for.
    I too almost got scammed by nigerian scams... Word to wise use a little wisdom when doing any kind of transactions with anyone or any business. The jewelry you send in they get a double Free bonus when you also send in stones with y0ur stuff. I'll be willing to bet that those who have been scammed wont ever be again !!! And i am sorry you were .
    Take it as a loss and lesson learned.

    I want everyone to know that there are legitimate gold buyers online and that I am one of those buyers. I will always pay what I promise and will NEVER treat my customers this way. I am very sorry for your experience with this gold buyer was less than satisfying. Sincerely Rob B.

    Hi my name is Francine from Pgh PA. I sent cash 4 gold alot of gold chains diamond rings, etc.. They told me the pkg was lost and I had to file an insurance claim. They will only pay $100.00. I know my jewelry was worth well over that amount but how do you prove it? So I learned the hard way. Please do not trust cash 4 gold!! Go to a jeweler. Thanks for letting me have my say.

    I am an employee of a gold buying and gold financing company that also operates out of offices in New York and I have been continually impressed by the honesty of the company I work for called www.mygolddepot.com The companies managers and owners pride them self's on Customer Service. They charge a very small but reasonable percentage as a handling fee. When MyGoldDepot.com loans money to customers in lue of payment My Gold Depot only charges a fair 8.5 % intrest compaired to 17 to 20% from other companies. We have been paying out close to 85-90% of the London Gold Fixing rate. All I can say is, I have worked at My Gold Depot for close to 8 mth's and I have only seen the best Customer Service I have ever seen from any service oriented business I have ever worked for. I hav been in this feild for 16 years. I can only recommed that YOU try www.mygolddepot.com you will be impressed.

    DO NOT TO BUSINESS WITH US GOLD BUYERS! I shipped a ring to sell, only because I received a decent buyback quote in writing. I was told my diamond would NOT be taken out of the setting. When I received a call back offer, I was given an offer of HALF the original quote. I told them I wanted my ring shipped back immediately. I had an agent call me back and berrade me for 10 minutes, yelling because I would not let him soak my diamond in acid, and sell him my ring for 1/4 the appraisal value. The ring was shipped and the BANDS WERE taken apart. My stomach sank! The diamond looks nothing like the diamond I shipped. I now have to file a police report and have my insurance investigate. I called him on the issue and how the diamond looks different and scratched. He said "ya ya, see you in court". IF YOU SEE A US GOLD BUYER AGENT..RUN!

    I also sent cash4gold 3 rings 2 watches 2 necklaces w/gold pendants and a bracelet. They told me they never received my pak and I filled out the claim form sent the copy of my license and now the person who is handeling my claim is never available. They say my claim closes on Feb 5th, but I cannot find out what is going on. I know it was stupid to send in the gold in the first place but I was in a jam, just had a kidney transplant and needed money for meds my insurance wouldn't cover. If anyone knows if there is anything I can do...help!!

    If they try to scam us, why don't we try and scam them? It may be hard, but if you can find any fake jewelery that looks and feels like gold, you could send it in and they may mistake it for real gold resulting in profit for you.

    If anyone wants to sell their scrap gold then go to a local pawn shop they will usually pay you the going rate on the exchange and there is no waiting or guess work involved.
    I think this should be true in most states as they are usually very heavily regulated by state commerce depts or even in Alabama by the banking commission.

    I too got ripped off. For years I have been hanging on to gold jewelry that I never wore. I live in a small resort town with no pawnshops or anything of the sort, and I finally one day decided to send my gold to these guys. My gut told me not to, but I figured at worst I would just get a tiny percentage of the gold's actual worth. I didn't even get that much. The gold I sent was worth 10s of thousands. Cash for Gold, of course, claimed they never received it, and offered to file an insurance claim for $100. Seriously folks, even if you're convinced you'll need to be buried with your gold because you don't know what else to do with it, keep it, or give it away to a begger on the street. Either way, you'll receive the same return as what you'd get by sending it to these theives.
