Fake sapphire from dennisvoster

Recommended Posts

In the last month, I bought what was advertised as a "genuine and natural 5.80 carat citrus-colored sapphire" from Dennis Voster, claiming to be "certified",,,bidorbuy item ID: 136200291 I paid R3370, including S&H. After receiving the "gem", I had it certified, as I do all my gem purchases, at American Gem Labs in New York City. They and GIA are the two top gem labs in the world.

 

Yesterday, I got the gem back from AGL with this certification: IT IS A SYNTHETIC!! Not natural nor genuine. To say that I am displeased at outright fraud and wholesale banditry is an understatement. I don't mind spending what it takes to collect great gems for my collection, but, I draw the line at being sold trash as if it were treasure. :mad:

 

For anyone considering buying a "genuine" Sapphire from Dennis Voster, be very careful.

Lodge an official complaint with BoB...you have the Proof......lots of fakes are being sold as the real thing on BoB. I have bought quite a few Hydrothermals myself in the distant past. Good Luck.

No Help

 

Please send supporting proof through to communitywatch@bidorbuy.co.za, so that we can take this matter further with the seller. Thank you.

 

I sent both BOB and Mr. Vorster Xeroxes of the AGL certification as a synthetic gem as you requested and of the "guarantee" from Mr. Voster that the stone is natural. I have heard nothing from BOB and I still don't have my money.

 

Apparently, BOB is complicit in fraud...that's all I can conclude.
