Cash4Gold.com and Cash4Gold.ca is an internet cash-for-gold program that will buy your unwanted precious metal scrap, in the form of jewelry, for cash. The way it works is, you get online and order a free, insured refiner’s return kit, which you will fill up with jewelry. Then, you send it off, and just wait. You will then get sent a check, or receive a direct deposit, for the amount that Cash 4 Gold pays for the quantity of precious metal received from you.
The www.Cash4Gold.com or www.Gold4Cash.ca program was derived from a company called Albar Precious Metal Refining, a company formed in 2001 with more than 60 years in the field and is one of the leading refiners in the business.
This program has been featured on CommodityOnline, the Nightly business report, Money Talks News, Local 10.com, USA Today, Super Bowl 2009 (featuring Ed McMahon and MC Hammer), and other well known sources, and has been hailed a leader among cash for gold websites and programs.
In today’s modern, uncertain times, it is nice to know that there are some safe ways to earn extra cash. Many, many people have lost their jobs, and when this happens, sometimes as little as a hundred dollars can seem like a miracle. So, for this reason, Cash 4 Gold has been such a success.
This company is the only company to ever be listed by the prestigious Inc. 500 Magazine for both 2006 and 2007, and this was to show that this is one of the largest growing 500 companies in America, reaching #129 in the ranks. This company also achieved the #57 rank from Entrepreneur Magazine, and has been labeled by Forbes Magazine as one of the top companies to watch in 2008!
The Cash4Gold ripoff
This site has had many complaints from the BBB and on ComplaintsBoard.com, and according to FOX News, the company is trying to "rip you off."
There has been a complaint by an anonymous former Cash4Gold.com employee that states many times customers have received checks for as a little as $0.01.
And, if you wanted your gold jewelry back, expect to pay:
...10.00 shipping and handling fee to have your own items returned, which varies. Although it is listed under the terms and conditions, this charge varies from a 10.00-15.00 charge to NO charge, reason being, UNSURE.
Cash4Gold's business practices are unique - to say the least.
