No paper trail of legal purchasing from you? Seems almost as sketchy (from an outsiders view) as doing it the theft way.There is a guy that comes to our shop every now and then and buys our old cats. I think we had 4-6 last time he was here, and one alone was $1200. He would look up on his phone what each was worth as far and the stamping on them, and throw out pricing each time. He loaded them in the back of his truck that was completely full of cats, and he takes them to recycling. I would guess that whole bed was worth 20k at least. He goes to pay us and pulls out a huge wad of cash.
If he isn’t asking for a receipt or anything from you guys how would he prove that they aren’t stolen? Or that 10% of his load isn’t stolen and the other 90% are legal.
Not saying at all that he’s stealing, I’m just saying he is asking for some potential drama.
