SAPPHIRE INVESTMENT RESERVES (WAS PRESTIGE COLLECTIBLES) HAS 10,000 FAKE FORGED ITEMS

Top musicians and artists memorabilia

BRIAN BURKEL JUST CHANGED THE NAME OF HIS  SITE FOR THE TENTH TIME !

PLEASE REPORT THIS SITE TO YOUR STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL

If you PURCHASED a forged autograph from SAPPHIRE INVESTMENT RESERVES, don't send it back and let him charge you 20% or 50% restocking fee. All you have to do is a chargeback with your credit card company.You will get all of your money back including postage. Then you can mail the item back to the forgery crook. HE ALREADY HAS BEEN THROWN OUT BY PAYPAL.

I am impressed by the amount of money this crooked dealer Brian Burkel ......

SAPPHIRE INVESTMENT RESERVES  OR PRESTIGE COLLECTIBLES AND GIFTS or AUTOGRAPH AUTHENTICATION STORE  spends on advertising.

It seems that Brian Burkel keeps changing the name of his company---it previously was  AUTHENTIC AUTOGRAPHS, MMP COLLECTIBLES AND MANY MORE ALIASES=== plus he changes the the url to his forged autograph store every month. THIS WAY WHEN HE STARTS GETTING BAD REVIEWS ON SEARCHES, HE WIPES HIS SLATE CLEAN. I suspect that his spending  is over $30,000.00 per month in google shopping ad clicks according to a former employee of Burkel's who has contributed posts to this site..

ONE WAY TO PUT BRIAN BURKEL....  PRESTIGE COLLECTIBLES OUT OF BUSINESS IS ECONOMICALLY. JUST GO TO HIS SITE EVERY DAY AND CLICK ON FIVE ITEMS . DO IT ON DIFFERENT COMPUTERS IF POSSIBLE. I SUSPECT THAT HE IS PAYING AT LEAST FIFTY CENTS PER CLICK TO GOOGLE PRODUCT LISTING ADS. IF ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR ALMOST ANY MUSICIAN, YOU CAN CLICK ON HIS AD. THAT'S HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS THAT BURKEL WILL BE SHELLING OUT PER DAY AND THOUSANDS PER WEEK.

If one does a search on  CHROME google shopping for BOB DYLAN AUTOGRAPH ,you will find all 25 results lead to 

https://sapphire-investment-reserves.com/product/bob-dylan-signed-h...

https://gr-8-gift.com/product/bob-dylan-signed-bob-dylans-greatest-...

OR

https://www.google.com/search?q=bob+dylan+autograph&rlz=1C1CHBF...

Here is Jimi Hendrix

https://sapphire-investment-reserves.com/product/jimi-hendrix-exper...

Burkel does not advertise for PAID clicks on Bing/ Microsoft so all searches must be on Chrome with GOOGLE SEARCH PRODUCT LISTING ADS

Please realize this works with almost any popular artist searches. Here are a few examples:

THERE ARE EIGHT COPIES OF THE SAME JOHNNY CASH AT SAN QUENTIN LP ON PRESTIGE AUTOGRAPHS--JUST $220.00...WOW, WHAT A BARGAIN !!=-

https://www.google.com/search?q=johnny+cash++autograph&rlz=1C1C...

 

beatles autograph..beatles autograph

So my point is that the forger Brian Burkel is spending literally tens of thousands of dollars every month in order to get clicks on google shopping.

A person can do a search for Jimi Hendrix Autograph and you can purchase it for $731.00...What a bargain

https://www.google.com/search?q=jimi+hendrix+autograph&rlz=1C1C...

You can do a search for the doors autograph with Jim Morrison 

https://www.google.com/search?q=doors+autograph&rlz=1C1CHBF_enU...

and purchase the LP  for $500.00

Please note that the company does not accept paypal FAQ 

Here is a beauty of Eric Clapton from SAPPHIRE INVESTMENT CONCERNS Autographs owned by MASTER FORGER BRIAN BURKEL ==ONLY $206.00:

One would think that the chargebacks from MASTERCARD AND VISA would have the company thrown off.

HERE IS CELINE DION ON SAPPHIRE INVESTMENT RESERVES AUTOGRAPHS SITE--ONLY $187.00

Here is the GUARANTEE that  https://sapphire-investment-reserves.com/customer-help/ offers:

"Yes, every item purchased from us comes with a Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing it to be authentic. Each item has been authenticated by a 3rd party authenticator(s), and the user of the web site accepts the validity of the authentication at the time of purchase, and no other opinion of the validity of the autograph’s authentication is acceptable, or negotiable for any kind of consideration."

IT SEEMS THAT THE AUTHORITIES ARE NOT GOING AFTER THIS GUY EVEN THOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS TO STATE AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

Does anyone else have a suggestion to get rid of this menace who has been ripping off 'Moms and Pops"................not people who are on this site who have some degree of sophistication.

Thank you!  I appreciate your help so much!  I will get on this tomorrow and follow up with you later on!  Thanks!  

Bugsy:

There are ten pages of complaints regarding Brian Burkel. There are eleven different company names over the years. Burkel was thrown off of ebay. Print these up and go to your local police and tell them that you want your money back before returning the item. In addition contact your state attorney general indicating how you have been ripped off with the 20% restocking fee with copies of these complaints. Do the same with the Las Vegas district attorney and Las Vegas Attorney General. Brian Burkel's treats to you are toothless and impotent from a coward and bully. The man was charged with beating his girlfriend!

re: Brian Burkel.......... during my time working for him I definitely saw enough evidence that would put his entire operation at risk and himself in prison for a long time. The guy literally has a Chinese company duplicate brand name items (guitars, drum heads, albums, etc...) and then ships them into the USA where he then hires an autograph specialist to forge the signatures onto the items and then lists them for sale across all popular auction sites as well as his own. He spends at least $1,000+ a day and brings in $150,000+ a month spewing fake collectors items into the American market. Did you guys also know that he is the person who runs Autographs Authentication Services, the so-called authentication expert behind all of the COA's he sends with his forged items, and has always been in that position. What a scam! When enough heat is put on his current website, he takes it down and brings it back up under a completely different name and internet address.  When his merchant account is shut down, he cons someone else into opening one in their name, and proceeds to restart the whole operation over again. How he has gotten away with this for so long we may never know, but I'd like to believe his time is almost up.…Added by Mike Wojcik at 9:09am on November 25, 2019

My comments still stand true today. He is a fraud and should be in prison. If anybody on here needs a sworn statement from me, I will happily do so.

His old site, autographsauthenticationstore.com, now forwards to the FBI -- maybe people will submit enough complaints for them to finally take notice.

I can't seem to find Prestige Collectibles and Gifts on the BBB.  Or for that matter anything with Brian Burkel's name.  Any suggestions?

Submit a complaint here: https://www.ic3.gov/ and give them whatever information you have. Other than that, I'd contact an attorney.

You have to have tenacity. If enough people complain, he will be arrested and/or out of business. Don't forget to search for a different musician every day and click on his ad at the top of the page just once or twice per day
