Cash4Gold whats behind the informerical

If your a late night person like myself. then you may have seen this commercial where a lady sends in her engagement ring to get a certain amount of money for a reasonable amount.

I've never been tempted to do this but I always wondered if you could send it in as a test and see what this company would offer. Well look no further, there was an article written by Christopher Null who is a blogger on yahoo and did the same test as I described.

They did a comparison with a local pawn shop versus the Cash4Gold claim. The pawn shop offered a bit of 198 for the gold vs Cash4Gold's initial offer of 60 dollars. After asking for their gold back they then did a counter claim of 178 which compared to the pawnshop is 25 dollars below the value.
