BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview
BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.
|Customer Review Experience||Value|
|Positive Review||5 points per review|
|Neutral Review||3 points per review|
|Negative Review||1 point per review|
BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.
BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.

Complaint: I ordered a car from ********, from a alleged dealership from the person named ****. **** took my credit card information, went online to Gem Nations website, put in my information (illegally acting as me) and purchased a $21,000.00 watch and shipped it to a random person in ****. **** told me the charge, for the car I thought I was buying, would have to go through his authorization company named Gem Nation. Gem Nation did call me to verify the charge (not for the car but for the $21,000 watch they were selling). The call was awkward as they asked if I authorized the charge but never said the charge was for a watch. I did declared to them on the call that I authorized the charge of $21,000.00+ for my car purchase, to which they responded "that was not what the charge was for." I thought I was talking to an authorization company so I advised it was for a car and the car was to be shipped to my home at xxxxxxxx in ********** *****. They countered my statement again saying its not for a car and was not being shipped to my address. AT THIS POINT THEY SHOULD HAVE CANCELLED THE TRANSACTION!!! I should have asked what it was for in their eyes but I didn't know authorization companies new what items people purchase so it didn't register. They did not rather they put the charge through and shipped the watch to the unknown address and my card was charged. When I didn't receive a car and I looked up the charge on my card and called the company responsible for it, I was advised the charge was for a watch (first time hearing this) I asked for a copy of the receipt and they wouldn't send it to me. I had to have a police officer ask for it they said, even though it was my card they authorized. I did have ******* ***** ******* call and email and they did send him the receipt finally. Apparently the watch went to ****. Horrible merchant practices!!! Out of greed they pushed a sale through that should have been stopped when there was not obvious agreement.
Desired Settlement: Full refund.

Better Business Bureau:
Gem Nation has finally shown their true colors. I have provided evidence that they did call me. They said they did not. I proved they recorded a call to me where I clearly gave them a shipping address for this purchase. They did not change the address and they send the $21,000 watch to a ********* **** ** *** * *** ***** ******** * ******* *** ******* **** ***** **** ******* ** * **** ***** ******.
