Rumors are he comes from a very respectable family. But then don't they all! I wonder how long victims had been complaining before the cops finally "investigated".

Because they're all crooks. Peter Karpenski is one of the greediest and slimiest but he covers his azz well. Make a post in the Berkshire Eagle's official comments section that mentions his name and/or business and see how long it lasts. No matter how mild or thin the criticism, it disappears almost immediately.

Proof positive that he's a 'good old boy' favorite weasel.

While pete isn't my favorite person and he has gotten rich on others pain he doesn't steal your items. He offers you a price take or leave it. His checks can be cashed. I hate how he treats his customers and what he says behind their backs. As a person a great deal more negative can be said about him.

When the women who filed the police report for the 100 grand came forward the police should have done something. Why is his gold and silver shop still open? He is running free able to hurt others.

Probably the same reason the beagle never reported for 5 years on the charges and accusations of a man who may have had an immorally fond appetite for young boy flesh and blood.
Or maybe the suspicions raised that a local teacher may have been giving nude piggyback rides to young girls in a school basement. Only then allowed to continue and give more piggyback rides. Some might suggest a topix poster's own chld was in attendance and greatfully unharmed. Ya know, no harm no foul. But I doubt it.
Remember that talk we had about the depraved running the govt, printing the news, owning your tv, printing your money, leasing the military, unconstitutionally lobbying our polititians, influence in the justice system, and so on. Remember? Of course you don't, you're depraved.

The jews are destroying the world through our excesses, vice, greed, subversion, and decadence. The opening of the federal reserve bank fast forwarded us into the industrial revolution and continuing to have devastating impacts on the earth. Our own compulsive behaviors are consuming the world. We represent 4% of the worlds population and consume 30% of the annual resources available. We have set a poor example for the rest of the world and if China lived like we have since the 60's I think the earth would split in two and have a heart attack. God knows she's trying.

We don't have a population problem, we have a consumption problem. 1% of this nation grows their own. We are at the mercy of the urban mentality, urban sprawl.

I did go to the Police and reported the theft on 10/1/2012. I went again and did another report. Nothing! They said it was a "civil matter" "a she said he said" I have the bounced checks for $20,100.00. I was told by Ferris coin they got $56,000.00 for gold they bounced and he got the gold, however they got the Albany DA involved and have recovered some of the money. Ozcan Jewelers in Boston said they won their judgment, but have seen no $. Many more have not come forward, because they do not think they will get $ back he can always move and start over. I wonder how long has he done this and who else was in on it. I have not gotten my cases back or my antiques and he admitted to his attorney they were mine. Glad he is not my son. I have been asked where he is living? Anyone KNOW? People want his address.

and thugs. "Me and U, I'm not surprised you were not satisfied with the treatment you received by Pittsfield's finest. But anyway, to anyone out there in the universe. What's the real story on the piece of shit, a retired PPD cop, whose untimely death is being celebrated tomorrow? And I don't mean the Planuts unbelievable version. I mean the mind blowing, brain splattering bloody truth.

Most Jewelry is sold just for scrap weight of the gold. The type of jewelry we see today has a markup that would make you ill. People are paid nothing in third world countries to make and grade cut and set these pieces. So when they are scraped the stones are removed it is weighed and sent to a smelter. Yes a lot of money can be made but you need to have a lot of customers selling and most of the items are broken or wore out.

Yes, it can be a hurtful business and it can also be one that gives people cash when they need it. It is so important to find out what the price of gold and silver are for the day and what the person is paying. It can be a very corrupt business, so please shop around. You need to trust the person buying and selling. Even someone who knows can be robbed. The one thing I can say is most dealers DO Not write checks that bounce. That is a stupid business practice. That is why this other jeweler has so many cases against him. And just think he graduated from SUNI, me I do not have a degree and still try and make a living as most people do without leaving such a smelly trail behind me. Wish you well.

Go on line an see who is on the LLC with Mark and where the business was located. Anyone who knows anymore or has a complaint should file with the Better Business Bureau and the police department or he will keep doing this. As white collar crime becomes more prevalent RUN. Be careful. I too had heard that his family worked hard. But now I wonder how much they knew. Like I said see who is listed as principle on the LLC. I think they too are accountable and they have money.
