A great source of reputable sellers is anyone that needs to raise money for a cause. Some examples are:
1. Boy Scout fundraisers
2. Girl Scout fundraisers
3. School fundraisers
4. Lions club fundraisers
5. Rotary club fundraisers
Other places that you can buy gold from reputable sellers are:
1. Dentists. They acquire high-quality gold from fillings.
2. Friends and family. Assuming, of course, that you consider your friends and family reputable.
3. Churches and Synagogues. People often leave jewelry to the church or Synagogue and they don’t know what to do with it.
These are just some of the sources. You can of course buy from questionable sources but then you run the risk of dealing with the police. It all comes down to deciding how you want to do business. Personally, I prefer to avoid the stress of dealing with less than reputable sellers.
