Hi Gang,

It's been a while but I just have to share this with you guys. It seems somebody is being very naughty. If I would be coughing up an annual 40 bucks to receive 'industry alerts' that later prove to be full of completely dreamed up info and outright lies, I'd be pretty miffed.

Have a look at this:

Consumer advocate, my perfect ass!

Well, I can't comment on your perfect ass and I'm certainly not going to comment on my less than perfect one but...

My jaw literally dropped when I read that.

It also left a sick feeling in my stomach for those who were looking for someone to trust after having been mislead by a gem seller, TV or otherwise, and who were looking for information to empower themselves against it happening again. :(

Man, I swear a little pee came out when I read that topaz report article!

Consumer protector... Hah! Filling his pockets, the crook. In the past I've said it with music. Well, let's do it again:

Put the volume UP, Robert! This one is for you, all for you...

:lol: Pretty Amazing! :twisted:

When I first ran across his website , I thought Oh Boy internet gemology.
Then I saw a very repellant post that made me realize this was something I never wanted any association with.

I have kept it that way. Clearly my first impression was correct.

Hey, aside from Toolhaus for negative feedback, does anyone know of any good eBay feedback tools?

http://www.goofbay.com - you can place snipes, check out sellers and buyers...

You need to know the ebay name of the person you want to check out and can then view their purchase history up to 120 days back.
