ENGLISH ALWAYS TREASURED!!

BEWARE EBAYERS, ESPECIALLY NEW EBAYERS TO FINE JEWELLERY!!IGNORE MANY HALLMARKED JEWELLERY ITEMS!!

My Tips: Watch for Fairly New Sellers, High Postage From Sydney, lots of 18k Gold, Watches, Fake Daimonds, all Bids starting at .99cents. Don't be fooled into thinking you are Buying a Bargain, the Shill Bidding on some of these Sites is Outrageous. As Sellers who have been Listing on eBay for many years, myself over 5, we know these Bad People immediately & can see the Shill Bidding quite Clearly, Be Aware if you are being Chased constantly by some Bidders, this might not be Legitimate, honestly makes me ill & eBay Security do nothing, until to late.

Watch for """-2010[Stopped Listing, Awful Feedback], """-sky",si"va""mes""69, & sk"pp"""66 [Opened Again??}I cannot disclose full ID on this Guide as it is against the Law, until they are Closed down by eBay.Thank Gooodness 4 of the Bad Sellers have been Closed Down """-sky1[11-4-2010][Now Opened Again] & also 2 of their Shill Bidders.Now Opened again!!!These Sellers have Opened Again, New ID, """2010, High Postage From Sydney!!![Please Contact me if you are Wary!!].s"""py2""6, has just been Opened Again Unregistered then Registered Again??, still a few left though, all from Sydney High Postage. I have been told, these sellers actually ring the Buyer, to intimidate them into changing Bad Feedback, either change Feedback or No Refund. Now Buyers if you have paid by paypal, your money is safe & they will Refund you. These people are Criminals & should not be ringing people at their Homes, just awful!! Watch for 9k, 18k Gold & FAKE[Listed as Diamond, read inside listing Created Diamonds & against eBay Rules, everyone should have Diamond & CREATED in Headings] Diamond Rings,Bangles[ you can buy Hallmarked 9k 18k Gold Bangles on Ebay, which are hallmarked, look at greenandgolds[But they are Reputable & do state their Bangles etc. are [gf]Gold Filled], Necklaces, Plus the Shill Bidding is just shocking!! So Many people have Bought this Gold Filled Jewellery[Listed as Genuine 9k 18k Solid Gold] & it is Hallmarked. I do hope everyone Realizes before it is to late for Refunds, Have your Gold & Diamonds or Gemstones Checked by a Jeweller or Take it into a Cash Converters or 2nd Hand Shop, some are just Glass. Just say you want to sell the item & they will Acid Test Gold & Test Diamonds. Some Sellers are actually trying to sell off these Wide Heavy Hallmarked Bangles, Euro Bolt Ring Bracelets, Necklaces, Be Aware!!ALL GOLD FILLED< NOT GENUINE GOLD!!Many of these Bangles etc. are purchased from greenandgolds & are Hallmarked, but are Gold Filled, NOT Genuine Gold, then the Buyer Sells them off as Genuine 9k 9ct 18k Solid Yellow or White Gold, Be Aware!!

 

NEW SELLER: I HAVE SEEN  SELLER vk-01[Closed] & sickbrook[Closed] LIST THE 9CT ROSE GOLD & 9CT YELLOW GOLD BANGLES,[Gift Not Wanted] WHICH ARE FAKE GOLD FILLED & HALLMARKED. FINALLY SHE HAS A BAD FEEDBACK, b'2'75[Closed], only New, I never undertstand why these people do this to other eBayers, just shocking  BOTH CLOSED DOWN IN JANUARY!!!! Opned again though!!! New ID!!

 

NEW SELLER:9ksolidgoldjewellery!! This is NOT Genuine Solid 9k Gold, it is gf [GOLD FILLED PLATED GOLD} Beware!! THEY HAVE STOPPED LISTING & LOOKS LIKE THEY HAVE TAKEN BUYERS MONEY!!CLOSED DOWN JANUARY!!!

Please learn the difference between Fine Jewellery & Fashion Jewellery. All Genuine Solid 9ct 18ct Gold, should be listed in Fine Jewellery & Plated, Gold Filled,gf gp etc etc should be listed in Fashion Jewellery. I am afraid this is Not always the case. Many Bad Sellers list their Gold Plated Rubbish in Fine & HALLMARKED, should be Reported as this is against ebay rules.

 

FAKE 9K[375], 18K[750]  "GOLD FILLED" BANGLES,CURB LINK NECKLACES,MEN'S NECKLACES, BOLT RING BRACELETS, ETC, ETC. HEAVY, BEING SOLD BY 3 PARTICULAR SELLERS AS GENUINE SOLID 18K 9K SOLD GOLD & HALLMARKED!!!!

janes-goods-online has just changed their ID to 1blue_berry {Now Unregistered}. Damn Swindlers!!!

I AM SO SICK OF WARNING PEOPLE & HONESTLY NO-ONE TAKES ANY NOTICE!!!!! FOR NEW EBAYERS TO FINE JEWELLERY, PLEASE LISTEN!!!!

GOLD FILLED IS "NOT" GENUINE SOLID GOLD, IT IS NOT WORTH  MUCH MONEY AT ALL. YOU ARE PAYING HUNDREDS & HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS, FOR HALLMARKED "GOLD FILLED" JEWELLERY LISTED AS "GENUINE SOLID 9K, 18K GOLD".

MANY GOLD FILLED ITEMS ARE LISTED IN FINE JEWELLERY, AGAINST THE RULES WE KNOW, BUT STILL IT IS HAPPENING. I HAVE NOTICED MANY SELLERS,  THEY ARE SELLING GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY, BUT HAVE  THEIR ITEMS LISTED IN FINE JEWELLERY AS SOLID 375 GOLD. FOLKS THIS IS GOLD PLATED OR FILLED, "NOT" GENUINE SOLID GOLD.

Gold Filled, Rolled Gold, Antique Gold Filled, Metal Core, Gold Bonded, Silver Lined, Vermeil [GEP, GP, GF, GL]etc etc, is ALL Plated Gold. It is Layed onto the Metal, Brass, Silver, in various ways, but is Still NOT Solid Gold or Silver, All is Plated & many times HALLMARKED!!

I Received a 18k Rose Gold Bangle [Hallmarked 750] from a Friend, who bought it on eBay, Took it to My Jeweller. It is 18k PLATED Rose Gold, Filled with either Brass, Silver or Metal. She paid over $800 from Seconds Galore Store[sickbrook] [Look at Their Bangles, Bracelets Necklaces etc. Then look at greenandgolds & various other Gold Filled Sellers, SAME ITEMS I GUARANTEE!!! These Unscrupulous Sellers Don't Care, eventually they will be Closed Down & your Hard earned Money Gone. NO it is Not 18K SOLID GOLD it is Gold Filled, or Gold Plated, all the same to me!!!!!. I have Listed this For Auction 3 Times, to help her Get some of Her Money Back. Ebay keep taking it off, to much info about how my Friend was Robbed, Picture to Similar to ones being Sold AS GENUINE 9K 18K, Then Not Listed in Fashion Jewellery, I had it in Fine, but did Make Sure Large Letters Gold Filled. Now why are so Many items GF [Gold Filled]PLATED, listed in Fine Jewellery??? Very Strange Indeed!!! I have re-listed it in Fashion Jewellery Again.

Now Honestly this would be hilarious if it wasn't so serious: jmurphyandson were selling all 9k 18k gf [Gold Filled] Jewellery  to Many of these Unscrupulous People, Now all of a Sudden their Jewellery is Called 9K GOLD SOLID??? Talk about Strange??. Have a Look at Completed Items by jmurphyandson or even their Feedback & you will see,  they are now SELLING HALLMARKED GOLD SOLID ???? I HAVE JUST RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM THESE PEOPLE QUITE NASTY TO SAY THE LEAST, ACTUALLY THREATENING?? These people are listing in Fashion Jewellery though, Not in Fine.STOPPED LISTING!!

BUYERS: If you really want these Hallmarked 18K 750,9K 375, Rose Gold Golf Bangles, Yellow Gold Golf Bangles,Wide 10-11mm Yellow Gold Bangles, Rose Gold Bangles, Euro Curb Bolt Ring Necklaces, Bracelets, Mens Curb Link Necklaces, Bracelets & they are 100% Gold Filled [Plated] NOT Solid Gold, Just go to greenandgolds, who List Honestly Hallmarked but GF. Same items, Same Hallmarking, all Gold Filled 9k 18k gold.NOT SOLID GENUINE GOLD!!

GREENANDGOLDS PLUS JMURPHYANDSON [NOW Selling As Genuine Gold Solid??][CLOSED DOWN], SELL LOVELY HALLMARKED 18K, 9K GOLD FILLED [PLATED} BANGLES, BRACELETS, CURB NECKLACES ETC. ETC. NOW THESE ARE BEING BOUGHT BY A FEW UNSCRUPULOUS PEOPLE & THE SAME ITEMS ARE TURNING UP ON 2 SHOPS, janes goods online[ NEW ID][ Was Another ID, cannot mention this name for Legal Reasons, until eBay Closed them down] & sickbrook [S'''nd' G''o'e 't're]. Their Friends are purchasing these for $20-$100 each, from greenandgolds, then they are Re-Listed as Solid 9k 18k Gold [Hallmarked] & Sell from between $600-$1000.Then the Friends bid like Mad on these items [Shill Bidding] & sometimes win, items are then Re-listed. Now ask Yourself Folks, if they are Buying this Gold Filled Jewellery, Fake Diamond Rings, Why are they Bidding on these 2 Sellers sites, SAME ITEMS From greenandgolds, that They have Won from G&G???? We are also seeing Feedback Left, this is Fake.greenandgolds DID confirm, they are their Bangles, Necklaces, Bracelets!!!

MY Advice & this is from Many Good Honest Sellers,  DO NOT TOUCH THE GOLD on eBay at the moment, unless they are well know sellers, who have been on for years.

GOLD FILLED JEWELLERY is Heavy Metal, Brass or Silver Inside & Plated with Some Layers of  9k or 18k Gold AND Hallmarked, that is why you will find, it is mostly quite heavy. After so many months these Bangles, Bracelets, Necklaces WILL TARNISH or FADE, in some Instances Peel. I am amazed there are No Regulations in Australia, for the Seller to have Gold Filled Marked 9k gf, 18k gf, amazing.Most of this is coming from China, Hong Kong or Thailand.

When you do realize your Solid Gold Item is NOT SOLID GOLD, maybe 2 Months down the track, NO REFUND FROM PAYPAL< NO REFUND FROM THE SELLER< you are Stuck with this Gold Filled  Plated Jewellery!!!!! My Friend Bought & Paid over $800 for a 18K Solid Rose Gold Bangle [From one of the Crooks], only to find out 2 months later when she had it checked by Her Jeweller & Mine, 18k Gold Plated, Hallmarked 750 & Filled with Metal, Brass or Silver, Not Solid 18k Gold. She had not even worn the Bangle, bought for a Xmas Present & I have been trying to list it for sale, but eBay keep taking it off. Either to much information  about Bad Sellers in My Listing or Picture looks to much like theirs.[I am Having Many, Many Pictures Done & then will re-list!!] Oh I am sick of eBay & the Fraud that is going on, really it is shocking. I removed most of My Guides to make a Booklet up for New Ebayers & now the Auction Sites seem Flooded with this Hallmarked [9k, 18k, 9ct, 18ct, 375, 750] Junk, Gold Filled Jewellery & selling it as Genuine Solid 9k 18k Gold, Just Fraud.

PLUS: These 2 sellers are using Shill Bidding like you would not believe, h***h, o***m, o***c, n***-, d***5[changed to 1-power [private],i***i, etc etc [CONSTANTLY!! Look For Yourself!!}. The Friends who Buy the Gold Filled Jewellery for these Sellers, Bid Constantly until the Prices come up very high.Main Buyers from G&G are h***h, d***5[now 1-power [private], 0***c, 0***m AND Many More. Please Contact me if you would like to know Anything?ALL CLOSED DOWN!!!

NOTE: I Rang Powersellers Security yesterday!! Do you know what their response was: Mumbo-Jumbo[Speaking as if I am some newcomer to eBay & don't know Gold or how eBay works AHHH], if the Buyer Buys These items & they are Fake Gold, well then they can ask for Refund through paypal!![To Late after 2 months} We are only an Auction Site & Cannot monitor all items being Sold on eBay. Now this I find so disturbing, as I do know Many, Many people & sellers have Complained to eBay Security, yet they are still allowing these Bad Sellers to Auction off Fake Hallmarked Gold, Fraud!!!!!

Please Anyone who has Bought this Hallmarked Gold Filled Jewellery from the Sellers, Demand your Money Back or Report it to NSW Fraud Police OR CONSUMER AFFAIRS.

Take "No Notice of Hallmarking", this is Inserted on Gold ["Metal,Brass, Silver Based"] Filled Jewellery Also.

How many times have I said, go to well know Respected Sellers.???

I have Written Many Guides & have had approx. 44,000 hits.

FOR NEW Solid Gold Jewellery: Gold Direct, MIKE's DESIGNS, better_jewellery, Jewel n Gems, ck8jewels, Treasure Hub, thefinestjewellery2003, mydezigne are Honest & Sell Genuine Solid Gold, look there are many, many more "Honest Long Standing", Good Sellers, who have a Fabulous Reputation with eBay for Genuine Gold. Do not go to these Fly By Nighters, I would Never Risk My Money on these Crooks!!!

FOR USED Solid Gold Jewellery, the Best was Karen at goldragon64, she is No Longer Listing & many of us Miss her: Of Course there is: Pawnbrokersworld, bayers-trading, ladee-greensleeves, myself & Many other Genuine Solid Gold Sellers, who have proved their worth & are  Long Serving Members with eBay.We DO NOT Sell Fake Gold Filled, Fake Gold Plated, Bonded, Vermeil etc etc. honestly our Reputations are not worth it. We have Beautiful Customers & why after all this time would we lie?? Never!!

Of Course I am partial to English Solid Gold, it has the Best Hallmarking System in the World. Fake Hallmarking can be inserted on anything, believe me.

If we ever Have Rolled Gold Antique[Plated] From UK or elsewhere, this is always Listed Accurately. Sterling Silver is Genuine Sterling Silver, not some Rubbish Bought in Asia!

This GUIDE is NOT for My BENEFIT, I am just so upset at what these unscrupulous people, are doing to an Auction site I did Love until RECENTLY!!!! Normally these Fake Gold Sellers are removed after 1-2 months, but this fraud is continuing & I honestly cannot understand, why people are leaving Positive Feedback for the Gold Filled items they have paid Hundreds & Hundreds of Dollars for. Maybe you are, "Not checking your Gold until After Feedback is left", I am not sure. eBay will NOT close these Crooks down, until People start to speak out to eBay Security or paypal, honestly I am astounded. Ignore Threates by these Sellers, some actually Ring the Buyer & this is intimidation. They ask you to Remove your Feedback or No Refund. Now if you have paid by paypal, they cannot keep your money, this is FACT I assure you.!!

Please Contact me if you would like to know more????

Some Sellers are Certainly Not Happy about this Guide, Maybe I should put all my others back on.LOL.
