A few weeks ago I put a message on this board of a guy that was selling items like signs, pumps ect. I have only spoke to this person twice, once when checking out what he had and when I bought a few large signs from him. It is my understanding that he could be dishonest in his dealings with others. I want everyone to know that if I knew he was going to be dishonest, I would have never posted items he was selling on here. His name was Steve and only a few members here, requested his contact information. Hugh

Please use For Sale forums to sell

Please - NO offers to Buy or Sell in this forum category

Statements such as, "I'm thinking about selling this." are considered an offer to sell.

is this the same guy that had the flying A sign for sale? He was Arkansas and the sign was Oklahoma. He wanted $4500 for the sign from me and was willing to airfreight the sign to Detroit.

Did this guy have the large husky sign last year for sale, along with a bunch of other 42" dsp signs... Chaplin,shell,Texaco ,it seems like there was half of a large flying a neon sign that was for sale as well. & the husky went up north to one of the sales... I.G maybe or something like that. The guy im referring to i think was out of O.K.C & went by Steve ??? dose any of that ring a bell baugie?

I guess I should have gone into more detail. This guy's name is Steve Deluca. He lives in Florida and as far as I know he has never sold anything before. He doesn't even use the computer much. After selling me some large signs, I offered to help advertise what he had because he wanted to raise money to buy his daughter a new car. My understanding is one of our members here worked a deal over the phone with him for 34 or 35 small signs. When he got the signs they were in poor shape, most reproductions when he stated they were original or old. Also this member only got about 31 signs. Steve Deluca shorted him signs and I guess would not make it right when he call him. I guess Steve Deluca isn't an honest man, Beware! Now you have the story as I understand it. Hugh

Look I made a mistake, and from this I will learn. Don't tell me you have never made a mistake. At the time thoses were the only words I thought of to post since I was ask to do it.

I am sure if this guy was discussed before it had to be before I joined. I knew nothing of his background.

Hugh, Don't be so hard on yourself as we all make mistakes especially when the CON ARTIST is good enough to scam banks and the government out of money! Steve Deluca
I know you are feeling bad but if you had know the REAL Steve Deluca you would have NEVER got involved with him. I have made some mistakes in my life that I wish I could change but can't.
You did the right thing by coming back here on Old Gas and explaining yourself. Before someone else on this board was taken by this guy.

If that guy defrauded people/banks out of millions, what is he doing selling phony signs? Must be he blew all of his dough, or maybe bought a boat.
