Cash4Gold

Lisa of Versailles, KY December 17, 2008

This is the biggest rip-off. Every time I see the commercial on tv I get sick at my stomach, especially when the woman says I sent my jewelry and took a trip of a life time. I sent at least 20 items to them and didn’t even get a measly $100.

They also have a “fast cash” option that allows them to wire the money directly into your bank account within another 24 hours – with the caveat that you lose the right to cancel the transaction within 10 days. I chose this option and based on their advertisement … read more ->
