Several people have mentioned to me in recent weeks their concern about the reported increase in break-ins in recent months where only gold jewellery has been taken.
Do all the cash-for-gold schemes offer a route for selling stolen goods that is simply too easy with no questions asked, just pop it in the pre-paid envelope.
Should there be some regulation of these schemes e.g. payment into bank account, photographic I.D. or other such ideas.
I have been told but have not had it confirmed that there are plans to tighten things up in this area the UK.
