    My mom sold a DVD at a pawn shop, and I noticed that they asked for her ID card, and entered some numbers from it into a computer, and seemed to read something on the screen. I don't know what they did exactly, but I surmise that it had to do with criminal records, state police "stolen property databases", or the like. Can just anyone do this, perhaps on a DMV website?

    they probably have access to some sort of database
    i doubt its dmv records though
    because even high ranking government workers
    often dont get access to those

    I used to supply pawn shops with various goods. I think they just take your id to see if you have pawned anything with them before. They also match your name to what you give them incase it turns out that the merchandise is stolen. Umm..it got to the point where they stopped asking me for my id.

    pawn shops have to keep a record of ever seller in case the goods turn out to be hot.

    that's it.

    Haha, sorry about your family’s financial state, b. For what it’s worth, my friend’s mom is a gambling addict and a compulsive ebay seller. She hasn’t gotten to his or his dad’s baseball memorabilia collection yet. Let’s hope she doesn’t go that far.

    Pawnshops, at least in this state have a special license to operate, and they have to keep a record of your id number in relation to the goods you brought in, so that if they are hot, they dont get fucked and you do...
