I was just watching Youtube as I like to do on my weekend, there is no telling where you can wind up on youtube.

I wound up watching a show series called Hardcore Pawn interesting show, the whole time I am watching episodes in particular the episodes titled The Angriest and Craziest Customers I'm thinking look at these people trying to scam this business and there is a lot of people who try. I think to myself they're just trying to run a business and people try every scam they can think of.

Well I was wrong I watched the guy named Seth on a short video being exposed for stealing from a customer, wow I was shocked they could do this and probably throw this young man out of the store for being upset about it.

I know that pawn shops are well known for ripping people off but while being recorded for TV wow. I wonder how many people he rips off on a daily basis?



Any one know of any other time they got caught on TV doing this to a customer. Thoughts?

They bought a Burmese ruby from a girl trying to get money to pay for her grandmother's funeral.

They came to her and said "We've got great news, we are going to change your life today!"

They positively glowed with their gift of charity and goodwill for this poor woman.

They gave her $10,000 for it!

Basically with the attitude of what a huge favor they were doing for her and how great they were for paying her such a large sum.

Turns out it was worth well over $50,000.

Wow that was pretty crazy. Hope this guy gets his card back or at the very least proper compensation.

And old d-bag needs to face the justice system.

Good catch!... What a piece of garbage. I hope this kid is able to use this as evidence and possibly file a civil suit. Might be good for a couple grand.

Would love to see these thieves get their comupance.

Yeah I watched a couple of episodes and concluded that those people who run that store are low grade scummy scamming vermin who pray off the poor and struggling.

Not only that but I got a feeling that most of the 'customers' are paid actors paid to play up and rant and rave. TV like this should be binned along with these thieving owners.

This is how people unjustly get bad names.
That is not his rookie card. Look at the top of the backs of the other cards - they are different. Maybe a 2nd year or something. Please retract statement. Thanks.

Who ever that man is who spotted it and then put the video up on you tube is very observant. That man should be commended for spotting it.

I actually like shows that showcase antiques and memorabilia it gives me an idea of the worth of things, my friend is an antique dealer.

Most other reality TV is just mind filler or land fill if you would.

That's it? On top of it, you wonder if I have an affiliation? No, I just went to look what the back of the rookie card looks like and that ain't it.
