I myself met Abe Berlin last fall. He seemed nice and quite knowledgeable about the jewelry business. Since I make jewelry myself, he was very interested and liked my items I made, as I showed him some pieces. He asked me if he could give some to a distributor so I could get some pieces into some high end boutique stores. I gave him five necklaces, all hand made. Sterling silver findings, hand made lampwork beads from an artist in England, pearls, Swarovski crystals. I don’t make cheap pieces. Two of the necklaces were made of Irish Connemara marble, with handmade silver shamrocks I had bought in Ireland.
I was about to give him $10,000 for investment in silver boullion – and as it happened, the day before I was going to take him for a medical procedure and give him the money, one of me coworkers called me and told me, to not, under any circumstances, give him the money. I looked him up on Google and found his arrest warrant, and all the other statements from women that he had wooed. I was astounded, to say the least. I did not call him about the medical procedure I was to take him to the next day, nor did I call him for a while. He texted me and told me not to believe anything I read about him, that he had done nothing wrong. Ha Ha. Boy, am I figuring out things now.
I have called, emailed, and asked him to give me back my necklaces and he kept shining me on; that the distributors themselves gave pieces to others and it was going to be hard to find them. I do believe in me own mind that he has given them to other women to try and woo them. He gave me some jewelry that was supposed to be precious but I had them assayed and it is nothing but colored glass!! I want my precious necklaces back and I even accused him of giving them to other women. He of course denied he did that.
So, if any of you women out there have in their possession, a beautiful hand crafted necklace, please contact this website and if you would, please give them back. I am at work today and cannot provide pictures of them, but I will in the near future. I cannot in my own mind believe what a cad he is and how he has been able to manipulate women into believing his outrageous lies, but I believed him. I was not attracted to him, he was just a nice man, and we had some same interests.
I do believe that he has definite medical problems and is a sick man. I work in the medical field, in a hospital.
I’ve waited a long time to write this and was never going to do it, but now his phone has been disconnected, he has moved from his residence and so, what other choice do I have. I can’t imagine anyone being such a cruel person who actually feeds off others and only to cheat and steal from them what he can.
Photos will follow.
(Blogmaster: If you received one of these necklaces, please contact this blog and return it to the woman whom they belong to.)
