Premium Pearl and their BOGUS ratings

May 18, 2008

I think the post about Premium Pearl and theuir Yahoo! rating needs to be updated. Apparently they have reinstated their account with Yahoo under their URL instead of their name in an attempt to show and researcers that they really do have a Yahoo! rating and that the messages on their web-site are not completely bogus. But let’s take a look at it!

They have a total of 11 ratings. That is 11 ratings is more than four years. Only three of the ratings are from the last three years, and two of those three do not look very good, one of them looks very bad.

Here is their new page:

Out of the 11 reviews they have received, 8 of them point out parts of the experience that were not 5 star. In fact one of the reviews points out a lot of 0-star points.

I purchased a pearl necklace and pair of earrings from premium pearl but was very disappointed with the quality and the overall experience. I felt the customer service was as bad as the product too. After this experience I checked out premium pearl on the internet to find that a lot of people have had a bad experience with them.

Even with reviews like that Premium Pearl still flaunts their Yahoo! rating on their web-site trying to get people to trust them. It is dishonest, fraudulent, unethical and wrong.

PremiumPearl.com lies about their Yahoo rating

How dishonest is this? PremiumPearl.com tries to convince innocent buyers that they have third-party reviews per Yahoo. We all know Yahoo, right? So we should trust PremiumPearl.com, right?

Wrong! Even though PremiumPearl.com brags about a Yahoo rating on their site, every page they claim to have a top Yahoo rating, they have NO YAHOO RATING! It is a total lie!

If you don’t believe me, check this!

They HAD a rating nearly three years ago. Thad had less than 20 comments about their products, and nearly half the comments were from customers not completely satisfied. Now you know why PremiumPearl.com does not link to this Yahoo rating that they claim to have. The can’t because there is nothing to link to. They lied!
