Be Careful When You Sell Gold in San Diego

San Diego Jewelry Buyer (SDJB) has issued an advisory to customers seeking to sell gold, diamonds, Swiss watches, and fine jewelry with the company. According to SDJB, potential clients should be aware that some gold and jewelry buyers are seeking to take advantage of SDJB’s company name.

Sellers also are advised to note that the company’s state license is #3711-1917, and that they operate out of only one office at 907 6th Ave. in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego.

For those wishing to confirm ahead of time that they are dealing with owner Carl Blackburn, the company encourages them to watch the KUSI special report which features Blackburn giving advice to former CNN anchor Sasha Foo about how to sell gold and fine jewelry.
