I went in to Cash Exchange and was asked to go back out and enter next store…Chicago Gold Gallery.ok. no big deal….Same guy. Said he was the owner..I then proceeded to sell my mothers items to split between myself and my sisters…..Showed all of the items to the man. He was very nice, at the time.Very good explanations on everything…Explained all the larger stones where not real. Only the smaller ones….I believed him…..big mistake. After selling all the items for 1600. I sold them mostly for the gold and platinum weight.Not even 2 weeks later I found all the appraisals on the jewelry from a year earlier. That my mom got for insurance reasons. One stone was over 2 carats and valued at 15 thousand dollars. The other ring was over 6500. Dollars. Both appraisals had pictures and everything.I then went back in several times until the owner was in. I told him the problem and it was like Jekyl and Hyde! He told me all sales are final. Also told me the appraisals are fake….so I said my mom was trying to defraud the insurance company….So condescending. I cant believe I fell for it….I trusted him…..I gave it all to my sister. I feel like such a fool. Definite ripoff.

Warning From RIPOFF SCAMS Please Read below:
If you have been fraudulently charged on either your debit or credit card, or coerced into paying and was scammed, we would advise you to immediately either visit in person, or call your Financial Institution that issued you the card. Open a fraud dispute on all charges incurred, file fraud charges against the committers and cancel your card numbers… then get new card numbers issued to avoid more Fraud charges in the future!
Most of these Scam companies will offer you zero help with a refund, you MUST take matters into your OWN HANDS! Sometimes they will promise you that they will refund you to buy more time… DO NOT fall for that, from our experience most never see a refund. They are counting on enough time to pass that your fraud claim time limit window will expire, ultimately allowing them to keep your hard earned money! File the Dispute ASAP or Open a Dispute with PayPal and Immediately Escalate it, if you paid through PayPal to get your funds back! The longer you wait to dispute, the less chance you have of getting your money back. This is YOUR MONEY, fight for it!
If you find that you are past your window to File a dispute with your Financial Institution, or were denied for any reason, please do not hesitate to File a Complaint with the CFPB at this link here: https://www.consumerfinance.gov/complaint
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), is a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.
They will investigate and can sometimes get the payment reversed and taken back from these Scam Artists even if you lost your Fraud dispute with your Financial Institution due to the Scammers lying! Stay vigilent and good luck!
