Q. Last August, I sent a bracelet and a diamond from a ring to Cash4Gold. They sent me $50 for the gold bracelet, but said they never received the heart-shaped diamond. They asked that I produce a receipt from Kay Jeweler's and said they'd reimburse me the amount. I was able to get the receipt, which was for $990, and fax it to them. They then said that after reviewing their cameras, they found the diamond on the floor. I asked that they send it back to me, but they never did. After many phone calls - 30 or 40 - they wouldn't help me at all. I then put in a complaint to the Better Business Bureau and now they won't talk to me. I'd really like to get my diamond back. Thanks for anything you can do.

A. I called Cash4Gold and they launched an investigation into your case. They declined to tell me what happened to your diamond, but a package is currently on its way to you containing the items that you sold to the company, as well as a check for $1,000 to replace the retail purchase price of your diamond.
