While it’s tempting to show up with an armload of family heirlooms and walk off with a check during the roadshow, consumer advocacy groups and law enforcement agencies urge sellers to use good sense during the process. Even though the company does not have any formal complaints against it from law enforcement officials, THR & Associates has received criticism for its advertising practices in the past.

The-Springfield, Ill.-based THR & Associates is also known as the International Collectors Association and operates the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The company has an “A” rating with the Central Illinois Better Business Bureau but is not accredited by it. A spokesman for THR & Associates said the company is trying to become accredited with the bureau but has been unsuccessful so far.
