I brought jewelry into a jeweler who took jewelry as though they were going to sell it but never gave me any paper work and as I dealt with this person before and never got paper work and being I knew him 56 years as he was a friend I never expected this time he would steal it and never give me the money or the jewelry back. I went through a lot and he knew it. I only have proof I was there as I drove in from one state to another to see him and it was only to sell gold and nothing else. I don't know how I can prove he took the jewelery, I do have finger prints on the bag he took it from and of course would love to have a poly graph done but don't know if I can have him do it. What can I do??? I was right there and saw the items and thought he put it back in the bag but instead he kept them. I drove from GA to N.Y. to see him as he knew I was coming and met me at his store. He is now acting like he doesn't know anything about the pieces.
I really appreciate your help and I will pass this on to my attorney who as I said is a friend and also a corporate atty. I guess I will have to find an atty in Long Island, New York and as far as the Police I had called them but they said I needed to come in and from the state of Georgia this was just out of the question.
Thank You Again :)
