    The Pawn Guy

    The Pawn Guy

    How does pawnbroking work? How do they know what goods are stolen? Do pawnbrokers deal with shady characters?

    I have so many questions to ask Matt about his experience working in pawnbroking stores. We find out about the time the store puchased thousands of dollars worth of gold for fifty dollars and the time a customer became threatening when he found out his stolen items were in the store.

    Matt's superpower is bargaining and he lets us in on how he scores discounts.

    Strap yourself in as we delve into the world of pawn!
