PoliceAuctions.com - police auctions us

My purchases from police auctions us have done nothing but disappoint. Not one of my purchases resembles the jewellery displayed. One item quoted 14crt white gold with 7 diamonds valued at $3300.00, I needed a microscope to even see the chain let alone the pendant and the diamonds are a joke. Took it to a jeweller he just looked at me like I was a fool when I told him what I paid. When I went to send a review it would reject my written word this site only take positive reviews. I believe their office has people bidding on items if the price is too low so they can inflate the price. Yes, I was the perfect sucker (Victim) making 10 purchases for christmas presents, I was too embarrassed to give most of them and had to purchase other gifts so I didn't offend my nearest and dearest. Read the truth which is not allowed to be displayed on the police auction site.
Ps the perfumes are cheaper if you buy them directly from the company. I almost made a purchase for alpha by raphael and saved $100 by buying from the company.
Save you hard earned $$$$ avoid the police auction site

PoliceAuctions.com - fraudulent business practice! stay away!

People beware and do not waste your money on PoliceAuctions!
This was the biggest mistake I've ever made and I regret I did not listen to other users. I saw all the negative reviews but I was sure that everything can't be that bad and decided to give it a try. I made a bid and tried to win earrings for my wife. I wasted over $500 and when I received them I was shocked to find out they were not even real gold! They sold me a junk replica! There was no way to get my money back because they refused to accept anything back. What a scam site! Please, don't waste your money! I'm sure everything else they sell is nothing but garbage.

I disagree with your situation on Police Auctions! I have won numerous Bids on there for very nice jewelry! If you spent over $500 for ear rings, shame on you for not knowing how to Bid! They also tell you that the item are either Gold Plated or Silver Plated and everything is returnable. We have only had one issue with a stone coming out of the set, sent it back and got a refund and turned around and Bid on a nicer replacement! Everything has a degree of risk so read all the information before you buy anything anywhere!

I've, also, won several Bids (8) so far, and everyone of them has been worth 14 to 42 times more than what my highest Bid was...Example; the Tanzanite Ring I won, for $39.00, and took to my 2 Jewellers (both with whom I've been doing Business for many years and trust) they both told me that, "Yes, the Tanzanite is definitely real." They quoted the price between $1500.00 to $1625.00. Makes me wonder, if it was "Fake", then why would they quote that high of a price? Thing is...They wouldn't! I think a lot of people think that the Red Strike-Through price (at the top, to the right) is what the item they're bidding on, is worth...That's NOT what that is. PoliceAuctions.com NEVER posts, on their Site, what an Item might be worth. It even says so, right in the TOS. The Red Strike-Through price is what you can pay, for the item, if you want to buy it outright, and not wait for an auction to end. I read ALL the things, on the Site, before I placed my first Bid! That way, I wouldn't be in for any surprises!

Only thing I don't really like, about the Site is the $12.95 Shipping/Handling/Insurance charge on every item! That can get pretty spendy! Otherwise, I love PoliceAuctions.com! 😊

PoliceAuctions.com - fraudulent website

This site here has nothing to do with the real police so don't fell for this scam!
I thought PoliceAuctions was a trustworthy site because there's a word "Police" there and I'm so angry at myself for falling for such a ridiculous scam!
I wasted my money and made several bids here and never won anything! And every time when I almost won they raised the price! Just a money waste and nothing more!
I also found many negative reviews about rubbish items, fake diamonds and stuff, so I'm actually glad that I quit PoliceAuctions.

PoliceAuctions.com - one item never arrived

I have purchased some jewelry from this website and received everything but one item was missing and it was the most expensive one. I did not receive the ring which cost me over $800! Items that I did get were nice and I really liked them, but still I'm super disappointed and frustrated. $800 is big money and it's no wonder they did not deliver the most expensive item. According to all the reviews PoliceAuctions is a scam business. Well, I still hope that someday I will get my ring.

PoliceAuctions.com - impossible to win on this website

Don’t even try to win something from the website www.policeauctions.com. I tried to win watches, but when only several second left, my bid was the highest, but suddenly the timer stopped and the website showed that no one won this things. Wtf? I tried to reach the moderators, but of course they didn’t communicate with the customers. I wonder if there are people, who have the same problems and what have you done in such situation, please post comments.

PoliceAuctions.com - this company has one of the most deceptive and dishonest companies with a website on the internet

This company has one of the most deceptive and dishonest companies with a website on the Internet! Avoid policeauctions.com at all costs! Their products offered are sub-standard Chinese made items with very little value and their signed memorabilia is mostly fake! More than likely they have someone in the back room signing worthless items that they then sell on their site as valuable signed memorabilia.

My experience with them was a nightmare! I bought a book that was represented to have an authentic signature in it and that signature turned out to be a 100% fake! I was told that if I returned the book I would be paid a full refund within 5 days of them receiving the book back. I got an RMA number and returned the book and after 7 days of not receiving my refund I called them and spoke with a fairly stupid sounding girl who said they would process the refund immediately. Of course I never got a refund and I opened up a PayPal dispute/claim. The company never answered the dispute/claim and continued not to issue the promised refund.

I then saw on their site that the returned fake item was re-listed and resold, so I called them again. Once again I spoke with the stupid sounding girl and this time she gave me a song and dance that they had indeed refunded me and even gave me a fake PayPal refund number. I called PayPal and they told me the refund number did not exist in their system. PayPal checked their PayPal account and confirmed with me that no refund was ever issued under any number by them to myself.

Finally, after a month and a half and a big hassle PayPal took the money from their account and refunded me! Avoid these clowns at all cost, unless you are a glutton for punishment and disappointment!

PoliceAuctions.com - very disappointed with this site

I bid and won 2 rings from them. One an amethyst, received it with one stone missing. I wore for 3 days to show people and 2 more stones fell out. They said value was over $700, I don't believe it. I also ordered a Tanzanite ring valued over $800, I wore for a week and lost a stone. Can't get a hold of them! Very disappointed with this site. My other question is how does this "police" auction site get so many new items to sell?
