I would love to talk on the phone but the cost is too high. I don't want to end up paying almost $100.00 just to answer a question. Can I send a Picture?

Hi, my name is***** am so sorry that Nora did not get back to you, I have no idea what happened!

I am a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to take over.

This is a Mexican .925 sterling charger by A. Ceron. It's from the 2nd quarter of the 20th century.

The current resale value would be $500 - $700.

If you have additional questions about this item, I am happy to continue working with you. Just continue our discussion in the reply box.

If I have answered all your questions and helped you, please rate my answer. I am not paid by the site until you do. It does not cost you anything more to rate the answer, and I will continue to be available if you have more questions on the item. Thank you.

At the top left above our post are a series of 5 stars. I always strive for 5 star service, but please rate as you feel is appropriate. However, if you are considering a low rating, please try to give me the opportunity to improve my service to you first!

If you’d like to request me for future questions, please put " for Jennifer only" in your post. I respond to requested questions first.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

I am very happy with the answer of the second person to check my item which was Jennifer. I do not understand why Nora never never gave me an answer even after repeated requests by me. I was never informed that she might take 24 hours to get back to me. Ifeel that your company is very misleading. First I was sucked in by a $5.00 cost. Next thing I knew the $5.00 went to $48.00 which I feel is excessive. When I was tired of waiting for an answer only because by what Nora said, ("please allow me some time to look these over") referring to the pictures I sent. I waited an hour before I asked if she was still there. I do not feel that it would take more than an hour to say something about a couple of pictures. Finally I had to change to another person (Jennifer) and she was able to give me a good answer. Had I knew that it would have taken a day to get back to me (Which is not Jennifer's fault) I could have done the research myself in a couple of hours. What I am really trying to say is that "Just Answer" is very deceiving & misleading. Like I said that if I had known that there was even a chance that this would have taken more than an hour or two, I could have done it myself. For that reason I feel that at least part of my $48.00 should be refunded but because of the work that Jennifer did, I feel she should be paid the standard amount. I will wait for 1 day for you to get back to me before calling the BBB, The Consumer Affairs & Business Regulation & the Attorney General. Sincerely, Stephen *******
