I have had several phone calls from an individual wanting to "unload" a truck load of pumps, air meters, signs, etc. He sent me several photos of part of the treasure trove. He only needs $300 to pay the driver to deliver the goods.This is a new spin on a old scam. Remember the old adage...If if it appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I believe this individual got my contact info off of this site because it is the only one that I have info available.

FRAUD - SCAM ALERT
Does anyone recognize any of these pictures? I was contacted by some people who claimed to be liquidating an estate. These are the items supposedly in the estate.
After some discussion I made a solid offer and they excepted and they agreed to ship COD with a cashiers check, but wanted the freight cost up front. I said for what I offered they could collect the freight COD as well. The head man said he had to check.....
They never got back to me and their voice mail box is full.....
BEWARE!
This is from a FB page.

These are the five photos that I was sent. There was also a photo of an electric pump done in Mobile, but I lost it. I think that the guy is just pulling the photos off of the internet.Dave

Not hard to figure out this was a scam.

He called me twice before sending the photos. Spins a great tale, but I let him "work out the details" with my girlfriend who handles all my money. lol Dave

The picture of all the air meters was lifted from my website: http://petrolianacollectibles.com/steve_gold.htm

The picture was taken in 2004.
