Watch this quick video for further explanation:

As of October 3rd, 2016, the Department of Defense will require pawnshops to collect and retain your Social Security Number each and every time you wish to pawn an item.

Currently, we do NOT collect Social Security numbers because we believe you have the right to privacy!

Pawnbrokers are a non-recourse business which means we do not check your credit, we do not send you a bill, and picking up your item is your choice as the borrower. Unlike other lenders, pawnshops do not force you, the borrower, to repay the loan.

For these reasons, there is no logical justification for the DoD to know every time a pawn customer requests a non-recourse pawn loan.

Pawnshops have been exempt from the Military Lending Act, which has been in place since 2007, in part because we are a non-recourse lender unlike virtually all other lenders. We are asking to remain exempt as this will put undue stress on YOU, our borrowers!
