Jeweller caught postinging cash for gold notices without permission.
Jewellery company Cresta Gems has been fined more than £1,000 after it displayed signs for its cash for gold service without authority.
Steven Brimble represented Cresta Gems at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court earlier this month and pleaded guilty to the offence of fly posting. The company was ordered to pay £1,142.
Cresta Gems had displayed a number of posters for its cash for gold service at several sites in Ripley, Langley Mill and Codnor. The signs were attached to traffic signs and grass verges.
The company has three jewellery shops in Derbyshire, six Wanted Gold for Cash shops in market locations and also owns trade-only jewellery business Birmingham Bullion in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
