Fencing is the actions of the go between for a thief and buyer of the thief's stolen goods. The buyer may unwittingly buy stolen goods from a fence in yard sales, flea markets, through classified ads, or other traditional markets. A shrewed form of fencing is when the fencer poses as a fence for stolen goods and sells cheap illegal imitations of name brand goods at high prices under the pretence that they are more expensive legit versions.
Pawn shops are no longer very good for fencing since the persons selling to them are finger printed, and there is strict accounting of all the goods sold.
