Pearls Stolen from Craigslist Recovered

Pearls Stolen from Craigslist Recovered

"I got an email from them saying the money was there, that it would be released in three hours and that everything was fine. Everything wasn't fine. The money was not released to my account and when I contacted PayPal, they said they didn't know anything about it," says Tina Golden.

The damage had already been done. Following PayPal guidelines, they had already sent the necklace to an address in California. The couple was left without the money, and without the pearls.

However, Today's THV learned today that the pearls have been recovered.

Tim and Tina Golden say they have been contacted by the San Bernadino Police Department in San Bernadino, California. Police told the Goldens they're conducting a sting operation involving internet scam artists. The Golden's $1,500 pearl necklace has been recovered. A fabricated PayPal site scammed the couple when they posted the pearls on Craigslist.

The couple expects the pearls to be returned in the next few days.
