hi welcome to my review let,s start

if your buying gold what do you look for first and foremost check feedback secondly ask questions its your money !!!!!!!

i have been buying and selling gold for quite a while and the first question i always ask is it stamped followed by how much does it weigh is it hollow are they the actual pictures and a good question does it stick to a magnet most people will get involved and answer honestly if they are avoiding answering questions it usually means a, they cant weigh the gold but easily done at post office jewellery shops etc so might ring alarm bells, please always get recorded delivery on any jewellery it saves argument and always if possible pay on paypal remember on chains the clasp will stick to a magnet only there is a tiny spring in clasps, lobster claws bangles , braclets also contain a metal spring or have metal cores these are used to strenghthen the product due to the shape of the item basically it means a metal inner surrounded by solid gold , bangles also contain a flexible metal wire which also help keep the rigid shape  , buy your self a gold testing kit £9.99 a good investment and scales another £9.99 if your buying a bit of gold it saves money in the long run and gives you peace of mind

now what remember gold is £5.00 gram for 9ct gold  £10.00 a gram for 18ct  what are you prepared to pay i always pay scrap value unless its something i really want gold normally goes for about £6.50 a gram on ebay most jewellers charge roughly £15.00 + a gram your paying for the intrinsic value how much it cost to make etc if your not sure stay away gold can be fun but exspensive if you get ripped off  "never buy out of ebay "or you will come unstuck  you may want to buy rings always check sizes and note finger sizes go up in hot and cold conditions i normally pay between £9.99 to £20 unless i want it ,if your buying diamonds check if the ring has "dia" followed by the carat size if your not sure of your purchase any jeweller will test for free of charge if asked nicely just be honest and say " i have bought this ring and i was wondering if it was a diamond " always worked for me  i purchased diamond tester from america for £49.99

lastly if you do get ripped off what should you do contact the seller be firm and fair they might not have known they was fake , demand a full refund back straight away if it does not look like you will recieve one open a paypal dispute and if no paypal open a ebay dispute do not be afraid of a negative on your score and remember your warning ebayers of these people lastly if you feel you have been robbed and not recieved your money report it to the police it is theft and you will find that they probaly have done this before and be firm its your money just ask them to at least put the details in there data base and check them out its the least they can do trust me if they are dodgy they will get in touch

if you come across any advert that says might be gold but not sure there mistake your gain it will not be gold trust me been there done it and if they have a high score they will have the fore mentioned tools check old adverts they might describe not stamped but gold because they can test them or if someone does not put the weight trust me the picture will make it look massive and it will be hollow or light or they have left it at brothers sisters house and cant weigh it etc cause they have and always remember to save all e-mails until your 100% happy i do if you have a question or need advice i always like to help

CONS AND FRAUDS SECTION

hi welcome 99% of ebayers are honest and genuine and the others are out right scum so i have compiled a few tips to help catch these people out who think they are clever enough to out smart us honest folks or the police

here goes you pay by postal orders and the seller or buyer that recieves or in this case says they didnt recieve think they have got away with it so wrong

1,keep your stub this is the fundimental proof in your case to proof that this has been sent NOT ALWAYS NEEDED BUT MAKES THINGS QUICKER BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE TIMES DATES AND AMOUNTS WHICH CAN BE CROSS REFERENCED

 i would advise sending recorded delivery any and all postal orders never cash if you can always cross postal orders this forces the seller to place the order in there bank account and this can be obviously be traced by the police and post office who have a special team dedicated to fraud and will prosecute any fraud

2, if you send a uncrossed postal order is that the end of that

NO!!!! so when a uncrossed postal order is cashed it is scanned by a cashier and time and date and server will be noted against this money order if you suspect that this has happened to you more than once (they know who they are ) you can get a claim for from any postoffice a p59 i believe but ask for a postal order claim form and they have them there all the time

NOW HERE IS THE INTERESTING BIT WHEN YOUR POSTAL ORDER IS WHICH YOU HAVE SENT AND IS PRESENTED TO THE CASHIER  SCANNED BY THE CASHIER THE TIME DATE AND CASHIER IS NOTED SEEM TO BE REPEATING MYSELF NOT SO HERE IS WHY BECAUSE EVERY POST OFFICE IS PROTECTED BY  SECURITY CAMERA,S 

 GETS BETTER EVERY POST OFFICE HAS WHAT IS CALLED A D.V.R WHICH STANDS FOR A DIGITAL VERSATILE RECORDER A WHAT ?????

THIS CLEVER GADGET RECORDS ALL INFO FROM CAMERAS 24/7 365 DAYS A YEAR HERE IS THE CLEVER BIT YOUR LOCAL POLICE GET INVOLVED FOR A FRAUD CASE AND CHECK THERE EBAY ACCOUNT AND CONTACT THERE OTHER CUSTOMERS WHO AS IT TURNED OUT HAVE ALSO BEEN CONNED BY THE SELLER BUT KEPT THERE STUBS THE POLICE GO TO THE POST OFFICE AND WITH THE HELP OF THESE VERY CLEVER FOR MENTIONED DVR,S CAN GET THE TIME DATE AND MATCH IT UP WITH VIDEO FOOTAGE  CROOK CAPTURED

4, the dvrs in the post office have 16 channels eg run 16 camera,s they also have pan and tilt etc meaning any footage recorded in digital quality can be zoomed into high lighting face etc documents used to obtain money from the postal order unless its a small amount and they might not ask but times dates and identifying suspect will result in arrest for fraud

I HOPE THIS HELPS I OBVIOUSLY CANT GIVE AWAY ANYMORE TIPS AS TO ALERT THESE CON ARTISTS AND THIEFS BUT IF YOU NEED ANY HELP OR ADVICE ON TRACING FINDING PEOPLE OR ANY EXTRA INFO I CAN TRY AND HELP YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN CONNED GET THERE DETAILS FROM EBAY EASILY DONE BY GOING ON ADVANCE SEARCH AND PUTTING IN THE EBAY ITEM NO  AND THERE ID ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE PAID BY PAY PAL WHEN TALKING TO THE PERSON WHO HAS CONNED YOU RECORD CONVERSATIONS THIS IS EVIDENCE GET THEM TO CONFIRM THEY POSTED THE PACKAGE AND THEY HAVE ANY RECIEPTS TO THIS PACKAGE ALSO CRUCIAL EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE ALOT OF TIMES DATES AND DETAILS ON YOUR ENVOLOPE WHEN THEY TOOK IT IN TO THE POST OFFICE TRY TO ESTABLISH IF THE ENVOLOPE WAS SEALED OR CELLOTAPED ETC BY THEM AND HERE IS THE CLEVER BIT IF THE PARCEL IS REALLY LIGHT AND FEELS EMPTY DONT OPEN IT LEAVE IT SEALED SAY YOU BROUGHT A GOLD CHAIN WEIGHING 155GRAM

AND PARCEL ONLY WEIGHS 39 GRAM ITS SO OBVIOUS ITS MISSING SO LEAVE SEALED WITH THE GUILTY PARTIES FINGER PRINTS ALL OVER THE BOX AND TRUST ME THESE PEOPLE WILL BE CAUGHT AND LOCKED UP

ALSO NOTE BE PATIENT WHEN PHONING POLICE BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT SEEMS LIKE NOTHING IS BEING DONE THEY ARE INVESTIGATING AND AMASSING EVDENCE AND WILL CONTACT THE PEOPLE WHO BEEN CONNING FRAUDING ETC THEY ARE ESPECIALY BUSY AT CHRISTMAS

IF THIS GUIDE HELPS ANYBODY I AM GLAD PLEASE VOTE IF SOMETHING IS NOT COVERED AS STATED SEND A MESSAGE I WILL TRY TO HELP BUT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN OMITTED FOR A REASON AS NOT TO TIP THE THIEFS AND CON MERCHANTS OFF
