I. agree completely. Not only that, if you ever visited a Goodwill Store, you may have noticed that there are no longer any Name Brand or quality merchandise available for sale. Instead they have pulled all Name Brand or more expensive items and now list these types of items ONLY on their auction site that has serious issues with listings, buyer protection and seller follow through. For a company making millions you’ d think they would let their store customers find some great products and deals, too. But you can’t because they’re all on the auction site and you have to take a chance of ever receiving your item or getting a refund, which of course, you will be on own attempting to either!
Hi all, I have found a few auctions selling jewelry from police seizures. Has anyone done this? I noticed a couple of things I want to ask about specifically. 1) I see certificates of authenticity from gem associations I have never heard of. Only a couple are GIA certs. Are these scams? 2) I found one ring that was GIA certified, however if you google the number, you see tons of other listings citing the same cert number which is odd to me http://www.seizedpropertyauctions.com/Auction/AuctionDetail/215028/Internet-Auction-667/Jewelry-Diamonds/Lot4052~PLATINUM-GIA-CERTIFIED-ENGAGEMENT-RING-1_80-C_T_W

"There are two types of public auctions," explains Steven Lang, who runs a used car dealership in the Atlanta area and once owned a dealer auction (not open to the public). "There are government auctions and there are public auctions." Both are full of potential pitfalls. Here's a quick rundown on both and 10 tips for getting the most out of either. That is, if you dare to venture into the auction pit.

Other types of vehicles that might be found at a government auction are “seized” or “impounded”, which means they have been confiscated by a law enforcement agency for various reasons. Some have been taken from criminals who have used the vehicles in the conduct of their crimes. Others have simply been impounded for violations of motor vehicle laws. Still others are “unclaimed” or “abandoned” by owners.

When the rightful owner of property stored in the Property Room is deceased, the Property Room is prohibited by law from releasing those items without a valid court order issued by Probate Court. Below is printable PDF document to guide persons through the process of retrieving items from the Property Room when the owner of the property is deceased. Once a probate court order is issued, please contact the Columbus Police Property Room in advance, and a Property Room Clerk will ensure you have the necessary information before arrival at the Property Room. This is especially true of the probate order is issued out of state.

If you run into a problem, try to work it out directly with the buyer or seller or with the auction website. If that does not work, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission by calling toll-free 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357) or visiting the FTC's website. Although the Commission cannot resolve individual problems for consumers, it can act against a company if it sees a pattern of possible law violations. You also may want to contact your state Attorney General or your local consumer protection office.
You can also sign up for a seller plus account which removes the final value fees, but is a paid account. Seller plus has weekly and monthly subscriptions, or you can pay $99 for lifetime access. This site has over 2 million registered users, which is significantly less than our top pick eBay. However, eBid is active all over the world. You can view how many people have looked at your listings and show your buyer feedback from past purchases so new customers can know that you are trustworthy. This auction site doesn’t offer as many payment methods as other sites we researched. You can accept payments through PPPay.com, PayPal or Skrill, and eBid does charge a transaction fee on all purchases.
The following link will take you to the sale list for the next abandoned & confiscated vehicle auction. Be advised that some of these vehicles will not be present on the day of sale, as owners/lien holders will have reclaimed the vehicles. You must be present at the sale preview to know what remaining vehicles will be offered and to view vehicle conditions.

Many police forces across the UK sell on loot which they've seized. And because this isn't widely known about – and because the police sell on items they'd otherwise have to store or dispose of – you could bag real bargains. For example, we spotted a kids' bike for 99p (collection only), a classical guitar for £14 (incl delivery) and an Armani watch for £15 (collection only).

The government and local law enforcement agencies will seize all forms of real estate. Houses, undeveloped land, businesses, commercial property can all find its way to government seizure auctions. And much like other property it can be had for well below market value. When real estate or house is seized everything inside the building and everything it contains has to be dealt with as well. This can be another great way to furnish your home for a lot less than the retail price. Plasma TVs, Xbox's, Wii, Playstations, stereo equipment, couches, dining room sets, and just about any other household item you can think can be purchased at big discounts like art work, antiques, jewelry, and designer clothing. There is no shortage of stuff to bid on at an auction. People who run afoul of the government soon find all their stuff being auctioned off at the seized auctions events, including the clothes off their backs. It is the government's way of recouping money that otherwise would fall on the taxpaying public.

Real property - Primarily, this consists of developed land with buildings, usually acquired by the federal government for a specific purpose, such as a military base or office building. This also includes some U.S. Forest Service properties, which usually consist of administrative sites and facilities.

Internet auctions typically last seven days, and operate like eBay auctions. Each listing links to the auction house website where bids can be placed.

I had a family members military collection to dispose of and Farmer Auctions and all of their staff did an awesome job in all areas, from picking up the collection of items, to the research and marketing to buyers, display, photography, and the actual auction. Will Farmer kept me informed of all of the aspects of how the research and grouping of items for the auction was progressing leading up to auction day. We were very pleased with the auction results and truly knew that we had picked the right people to handle this auction. They are an top notch company and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
