    not sure why my comment was removed but this is the truth. Cash for Gold has been buying gold from people without asking people for ID. Its a violation of PA state laws. They have been shutdown numerous times by Philadelphia Police at Franklin Mills for not taking proper ID. Again..what goes around comes around!
