    Just sat in the bath listening to 5LIVE to hear that auctionworld have been fined £450000 for dodgy onscreen guide prices , the example given was for some diamond "valued" at £19000 which were only worth £3000

    Cant find a link to the actual story , but here is a link to the 5Live bulletin

    Always thought some of these channels were a bit suspect

    I saw the Watchdog program and I think they said they had received most complaints for a small company. Some folk were ringing to complain over 30 times before getting through and then no one answered them.

    Re the diamond ring the showed one where a diamond had fallen out of its setting.
