STAY AWAY FROM HAROLD THE JEWELRY BUYER!!

Attention anyone who is considering taking a loan with HAROLD THE JEWELRY BUYER beware of his sneaky methods and business practices. He will offer you an amount of money as a loan when you leave your jewelry at his place of business. He then tells you to bring the first interest payment in one month. Never does he say that you will loose your property if you don’t bring that first interest payment. He uses some scrape paper writes a date on it, puts a sticker with a number on it and says thats all we need for the agreement. He’ll tell you don’t worry all your belongings will be here.

After learning the expensive way, at harolds his loans are on one month periods, if your late, say by to your gold.

Why he operates this way, because he does not have a license to give loans. Many people have been ripped of by this bottom feeder, he lets you believe through his commercials and when he speaks with you in person that he runs a reputable business. The fact is this kind of business (the pawn shop business) requires a license with operating rules and regulations, the main rule being that a minimum of 12 months must be given to reclaim your property.

So beware of Harold the Jewelry buyer he runs a unlicensed pawn shop, believes he can do what ever he wants, Don’t do business with him he’ll rip you off.

Then you can get back at him by reporting it to the City for running a pawn shop w/o a license.

Not everyone has an excessive amount of income. Maybe someday people will understand the value of living.

Back to the topic.

His point is that if you need to get a loan from a jewlery store/pawn shop then maybe you need to reevaluate your financial situation.

Don't worry about it OP.

Someday he'll do that to someone that won't take it sitting down and get him back REAL BAD.

If some little moron like that attempted to keep the gold of a few people I know, he wouldn't have a store for a long time, nor an uncut face.

If what people here are saying about operating illegally, then I believe you could call the police and explain your story. It's theft.

That's Oliver (aka the cashman), not Harold.
