The price of gold hit $1800 U.S. an ounce today before closing at $1751 – more than double its value two years ago. The surge has Albertans pawing through jewellery boxes for items to trade for cash, but the Better Business Bureau is warning the public to beware.

Your professionalism made the process worth telling all my friends and family about your business. I look forward to our many dealings in the future, warmest regards,
It was a pleasure to meet you today and I want to thank you for your very generous donation to Jessica’s Wish for our major fundraiser to be held on Sept. 4th, 2011. I know it will be a wonderful auction item and will help us to raise more money this year
So nice to meet you both today, and thank you so much for spending the time with me to look at some of my gemstones and diamonds. And, for your great suggestions on Diamond Grading ABC. I’ve ordered it from the GIA educational store – they’re offering free shipping and a great price right now. …
Clint, thanks again for the deal you gave me on my engagement ring. You saved me $1,500.00. It is gorgeous and better quality than I could find anywhere. I owe you one.
You were absolutely awesome to deal with! I have been busy referring all my friends and I know you have already seen one of the ladies this weekend.
