Under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, it is illegal for yards to pay you cash for your scrap metal. After verifyling your identity, dealers can pay you using a bank transfer or a crossed check. In England and Wales only, they may also use specific pre-payment cards. Cash Stoppers is a BMRA initiative to enable members of the public as well as scrap metal dealers to anonymously report dealers breaking the law and paying cash.
To report someone paying cash you can either send an email to Cash Stoppers or fill in the form below.
