Update: Cash4Gold Defendant Liberis Files To Vacate Default

Michele Liberis, the former Cash4Gold employee being sued by that company based on her “10 Confessions” posting, today filed a “Motion to Vacate and Set Aside” the default that Cash4Gold was granted against her earlier this year. In her motion, Liberis states that the default “was improper and should be deemed void,” given that it was based on a claim that she hadn’t responded to Cash4Gold’s initial suit against her. Liberis had, in fact, replied to the company’s written questions, setting forth her “unequivocal and explicit denials” of Cash4Gold’s allegations against her.

The Article Cash4Gold Doesn't Want You To Read

By Ben Popken and Meg Marco

If you have any broken, ugly jewelry lying around in a drawer somewhere, you’ve probably taken notice of a company called Cash4Gold that promised to pay “top dollar” for your not-so-precious precious metals. If you’re like us, you might have even seen a post on ComplaintsBoard.com by a former employee exposing Cash4Gold.

The whistleblower’s post appeared on ComplaintsBoard last November. We featured it this February, as part of our ongoing coverage of Cash4Gold, after the company raised its public profile with a multi-million dollar Super Bowl ad. The post was indeed written by an ex-employee, Michele Liberis, who is now being sued by the company for defamation. Recently, Cash4Gold added Consumerist and ComplaintsBoard as co-defendants in its lawsuits (PDF) against Liberis and another former employee, Vielka Nephew (PDF), in an attempt to force us to take the information down. Liberis and Nephew have chosen to stand up to Cash4Gold’s legal attack, and so have we.

Cash4Gold Counters Critics With Super Polite Blog Posts

Cash4Gold has decided to counter a mounting stream of criticism – a Yahoo! tech article, a Red Tapes Chronicle MSNBC article, posts at Cockeyed and an insider confession at Complaintsboard – by putting up a series of debunking posts on their blog. I don’t know about you but the more four-syllable words a questionable company uses and the more their pronouncements sound like an Intro to Rhetoric term paper, the more I trust them.

Sad: Cash4Gold Buys Superbowl Ad Slot

The stage is set for truly the saddest year of Superbowl Ads, Cash4Gold has bought up a Superbowl Ad slot. Cash4Gold usually advertises on late-night cable TV. You send them your scrap gold, and they send you money. I can’t wait to see what they come up with. Probably they’ll just replay the same commercial. NBC also has two 30-second slots left for sale. Someone tell the Snuggie cult.
