There’s a new prospector in town, and he’s looking for your gold. While you are at work, he will be breaking and entering your house to steal whatever gold you have and take it to the local gold-to-green to cash in.

Those priceless heirlooms from Grandpa that you planned to give to your children will be melted so these thieves can get high. That special ring your husband gave you will be pawned for a few bucks. That feeling of security you had in your home will be replaced by fear, wondering if you’ll be broken into again. You may look but never find your sentimental stolen items.

The prospector is out there stealing someone else’s joy. These businesses that exchange money for stolen gold should be shut down. It makes it easy for these robbers to get paid for robbing your house.
