Buyer Beware-Fakes and MisrepresentationI bid and won an item represented as Jade. After nearly a month I finally received the item. I am a Gemologist of 40 years. It did not take me long to determine the item was NOT Jade but rather, it is Quartz. I immediately notified Benat Latair by two emails. Nothing after nearly a week. Because the item was less than $300, I will not pursue it and count it as a lesson to never again, go to a Latair Auction. I believe they are nothing more than a very incompetent racket to distribute Chinese Fakes into the marketplace. In other words, junk. Ben made it seem that to locate my item, after several inquiries as to when the item would be shipped, was a challenge for them. The shipper finally contacted me to inform me of the $38 fee for shipping the small item. Yes, people need to make money but flat rate is $7 bucks, folks. I believe they have broken FTC guidelines and if I were in Boston, I would file a small claims against them for misrepresentation/fraud, just to teach them a lesson but I do not and they are not worth my time. But if you are tempted to spend any money with Latair Auction, I repeat my warning: BUYER BEWARE!!!
