Oaks Pawn And Jewelry buyer beware! i bought a 52inch plasma, it lasted 2 days, they would not take it back Gainesville Florida!!
I would steer clear of these rip off artists. I saved up my hard earned cash for 6 months so I could buy a big screen TV. A buddy of mine suggested I go to a few pawn shops in the area since he found good deals for other items. I’m thinking great idea, save myself some money….Well, I came across a nice 52 screen plasma TV at Oaks Pawn and Jewelry and spoke to the store manager Clint regarding the condition of the TV and he assured me it was good to go. He turned it on to assure me it was in good working order. It seemed to be fine….So later that day I came back with a borrowed minivan (I drive a civic) and loaded it up. I get home set it up and everything seems to be fine. The next day I was having a birthday party and planned on showing some home movies. Well, I go to hook up the DVD player and I can hear the movie but not see it. I figure it was the DVD or the player. I then try hooking it back up to the cable and get the same result….I ended up calling Oaks Pawn to see if they have the manual (for troubleshooting) and pretty much got the cold shoulder. They offered no help in looking for the manual and flat out refused to take the TV back as a return. They did not offer to give me store credit either (which I suggested) after I asked to meet in the middle, they said, once I walk out with it, It’s your problem….They seemed to be accusing me of abusing this thing in transitwhy would I not be careful with my new TV? I went back and talked to them, some guy they called Shorty (although a funny guy) in the end told me to get lostI walked out and now am enjoying my 52 paper weight. Moral of the story? Oaks is the place to go if you want to get ripped off! Seems I’m not the only one….Big john…gainesville, FloridaU.S.A.
