Pawn shops are everywhere. In fact, after the internet, pawn shops are everywhere on the internet as well. Moreover, it is very easy to claim things on the internet and it is very difficult for someone else to prove or disprove it. Thus, if a pawn shop is making claims about offering the lowest interest rates, you can’t know for sure. The water is murky and thus, you need to tread cautiously.
There are few ways to spot the proverbial bad apples though. On the internet, the rules are slightly different. However, the basic is the same, if people are wary of it, you should be wary of it as well.
When you are looking to finalise an online pawn shop for jewellery, in most of the cases, you don’t have much time to research as you would want to place your hands on the money quickly. Go to Google and search for the brand name of the pawnbroker, for example, if his business is named www.fishpawnbrokers.co.uk, search for Fish Brothers Limited. Of course, their site will come at the top but ignore that result. In fact, if they have multiple pages listed, ignore every URL which starts with www.fishpawnbrokers.co.uk. Go to the other sites and see what’s written on those sites about the pawnbroker. These are real feedback of real users and these are the feedbacks which you can trust. Study these reports for all the pawnbrokers you have shortlisted and the one with the best reviews is the one which you should deal with.
