I have seen the websites and T.V. ads for turning your old gold jewelry for cash. Sounds like a logical thing to do as long as you get paid. I am just not too sure if I would trust the mail to send my old jewelry to a company and then expect money in return. Has anyone here sent in their gold for cash? Was it worth it? Did you trust them before you sent it out? Why did you send it i the mail instead of going to the local jewelers?

I honestly wouldn't trust this company or what they do. I think ti is gonna take the petty theft rate soaring. people are gonna try to steal other's gold to make a buck or two and then they crime rate is gonna go up. this is just a bad idea and just doesn't sound very trustworthy.

Hi Jeanine, Thanks for your response. I was wondering about the gold being stolen form the mail as well. It just does not sound like a safe way to trade in your gold. I am not too sure about some of these companies and how trust worthy they may be, How do we know if one of the employees there do not take a piece of gold out of what you send in. If they did this to every person that sent in an envelope of gold, that person could be rich.
