The people that take stuff into that place get jacked that bald headed FR is always swindling someone out of something his karma is gonna suck if people were smart get on the net and look you're item up and find out what it's worth and you can even most of the time find a buyer for you're item to! Don't give old baldy the opportunity to swindle you out of something that would be twice what he gives you be informed!!!

Yep your right I watched it one day and after seeing how he rips people off I'm glad when I was there that I never had to pawn anything. I probably would have sat in the grey bar hotel because I would have punched him in his fat bald head that hole place does nothing but rob people and it is absolutely wrong and your right snake their karma is going to get them back. If you ask me the place is full of crooks and they are feeding off people that helpless and sick! Old baldy is the ringleader in the outfit! Karma is a some b-tch bank on that BALDY!!!!!!!!!!

This IS Las Vegas! Everybody is out to scam everybody else. The town is built on the premise that a fool and their money are easily parted.
The Doctors and Dentists are the biggest crooks. Everyone of them are in it just for the money.
They have a license to steal!!

You toads have no idea how a pawn shop works. Yes , they are not going to give you retail value because they have overhead including rent,utilities,payroll,taxes,a dvertising, dead stock,write offs,insurance and so forth. If you mind your finances and don't have a champagne taste on a beer budget, you will not need a pawn shop. Grow up!!!!

Would you be willing to take his dead stock write offs? Hey, this is a TV show about a higher end pawn shop. Most PS's are pawning and buying from those who have stars in their eyes and diamonds in their butts and can't afford what they have bought.. Same with the Repo shows. People buy what they can't afford and then get pissed off when the man comes to get what you can't afford to pay for. BooooooHoooooo. Stay within your budget and you won't be the next "star" of the show showing your ass to America.

Not at all just go online and find out what you're item is worth so atleast old baldy there can't take advantage of you! I dont want to hear they have all this overhead they just rob desperate people! And pawning something is nothing like buying an overpriced car! Those people probably are living above their means! But the people that pawn stuff are being robbed!!!!!!!!!!

HMMM so they take advantage of the person who is looking to sell their property however doesnt want to spend the time checking what they have first? The person cant sit down at a computer, or get an item appraised but rather their only means is a pawn shop. THis also means said person if in a jam cant just run down to dollar loan center. Sounds like to me the said victims are hurt of a self inflicted injury. I dont feel bad for them, they went, they lost, they probably didnt learn and will be back. Why should pawn business suffer? Seems like a smart move on the pawn shops part. By the way Im guessing he didnt give you value on what you thought your item was worth, or are you always butt hurt. You can always protest by not watching the show and drop their ratings hence their money in the long run, but then again thats the smart thing to do so I see where you have problems with that

so you were visting a pawn shop that you dislike and complain about, then blocked a sale because you just happened to have 10K on you to buy someones "item". Your story has some holes in it

First- why enter a pawn shop you dislike so much and complain about

Second- you just happened to have 10K to buy the item

Third- you never actually named the item

Fourth- you all of a sudden now are an appraiser and know value of items

Fifth- I am assuming you paid 10K for the item because that was what you stated the item was worth in your expert opinion and being fair you would pay that amount even if the guy only wanted 5K for his item otherwise you would be doing the same as the pawn shop, you know buy low sell high the first rule of any successful business plan.

I really see no need to go any further I could just dont see the need

At the time I was new to the area and I like going into pawnshops I just didn't like it when I saw him take advantage of this senior lady he's a crook!!! And no I didn't have ten grand on me the guy was cool enough to wait till the next day. And I said that I thought it was worth 10,000.00 not 5,000.00 you need to get you're specs checked bub!

People need to take responsibility for their own lives, including pawning stuff. They can put an ad in the paper, sell it on Ebay, put it up for auction, or go to another pawn shop. These guys have things appraised at their own expense on the show and nobody is forced to sell them anything at any price. Grow up and find something that matters to bitch about. Obama is a good start.

Never been to ANY pawn shop that gave you what something is worth. Pawn shops give you an easy place to get some quick money at a huge cost to you via your goods. If you can't wait for someone to answer an ad about your item(s), then you give up much of the value of your item(s). Pawn shops are convenience stores that buy as well as sell.

Well "bub" I dont need to check my specs maybe you should check what I was saying. I said if you paid 5,000 for something worth 10K then you would be doing the same thing. Basically you answered my next question also, what kind of person would pay 10K for an item valued at 10K? If I could get my dream car lets say they wanted 50K for 25K then I would. Its called smart buying. I sure as hell knowing something cost 10K wouldnt pay 10K unless it was something I truly needed otherwise I would "bargin" them down. Oh but here's yet another one I guess you have never bargined with anyone either to get a better price right because that too would bedoing the same as a pawn shop. Hmm interesting.

Point number 2 about your flawed story you didnt like him seeing take advantage of an old lady where did you see this as it wasnt in your post. Why didnt you buy her item and assist her, but instead you helped " the guy" what no respect for women, or the elderly? Or did you just not want was she was selling? Or was it she wanted 11K and you would need an extra day to get that?

Holes, Holes and BS I shall mark the rest of your comments accordingly.
